Taupe-Tastic Tuesday: Maybelline Tenacious Taupe
This is one Taupe-tastic Tuesday that almost never happened! :) I had all sorts of crazy events come up today that kept putting me off editing these pictures to get them up to you!
So... this week's taupe isn't an eyeshadow... First one!!! Today I want to talk about the new Limited Edition Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick for Mercedez Benz Fashion Week 2012 in Tenacious Taupe!
This is my first venture into taupe lipsticks... Well, maybe not. I am a big nude lip fan! Not zombie nude lips but definitely a neutral lighter brown/rosy type of nude and that is what this lipstick color is...
These come in the regular Maybelline Color Sensational packaging, and I believe that the brown-y nude colors even have this burgundy type of lid.
The swatches below shows that it is a rosy type of tan/brown. In the swatch it looks like it is very reminiscent of the 90s brown lipstick look but on the lips it translates into a lighter shade.
You can even see here that it actually looks lighter when the flash is on it.
Here is the lip swatch! :) I cannot tell you how much I love this shade. It actually really looks a lot like the MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipgloss. I have that and wear it pretty often and this is similar for sure. The lip swatch below was taken in direct sunlight with no flash.
I can't believe I am showing you this picture! I was out shopping all day and then was outside playing in the pool with my kid and husband so please excuse the worn looking makeup!
Fall is coming in a hurry and I tend to switch to more nude-toned lips during that season because I tend to play up the eyes a bit more dramatically with jewel tones and deeper neutrals.
This lipstick retails from anywhere from $4-10 depending on where you buy it. It is currently out in stores but it is limited edition so if you are intersted I would pick it up in a hurry! What taupe are you wearing today? Do you own any nude/taupe lipsticks? Let me know in the comments below!
