Great news! Maybelline's latest Color Sensational So Nude is a lipstick collection which is specially formulated with pure, warmer coral pigments that give lusher and brighter colours to flatter most Asian skin tones.
After testing the lipsticks, I was pleasantly surprised for a few reasons:
1. The lipsticks create a soft, conditioned and moisturized lip look (I later learnt that they contain natural honey nectar). There is certainly no need to layer your lips with extra lip balm/ gloss after applying So Nude.
2. All five colours from the collection should flatter most Asians. I am Chinese and my skin tone is fair but sallow. It's extremely difficult for me to find lipsticks in suitable tones of brighter pink and orange, but I actually manage to find such shades that flatter my skin colour (ie: NU31 Coral Attitude & NU34S Rosy Rebel) from the So Nude collection!
3. Texture of the lipstick is creamy but light. The colours are less vivid but would definitely suit those who like a natural, light and sheer finish. Generally speaking, the lipstick should suit ladies with paler, and not darker lips, better.
The Maybelline Color Sensational So Nude is available in five shades (Coral Attitude, Rosy Rebel, Mocha Muse, Sugared Almond and Beige Truffle) and retails for SGD $17.90.
