I’d like to share with you three of the lipsticks I purchased from Maybelline’s “The Buffs” Lipstick Collection. I was very excited when I learned of their release. Like a lot of other beauty fanatics, I LOVE a nude lipstick. What was great to see about this nude colour range, was that Maybelline had included a beautiful range of “nudes” for ALL skin tones! They include 8 shades.
They were a big hit in the US, with shades selling out quickly. I was able to cross the border and get mine on the US Side, before their release in Canada. Since I have many nudes, I decided that I’d go with #920 Nude Lust. I ventured away from what would be a nude for my skin tone and decided to add some color, and picked up # 940 Touchable Taupe and #950 Untainted Spice.
They became available in Canada in mid January, and everyone kind of gave a sigh of relief, when they started showing up as part of the permanent collection. They are very pigmented and apply nicely and I found them moisturizing. They do have a bit of a smell, which I have learned is common for the Maybelline lipsticks. They have a basic packaging, which personally I don’t care for…..I find it makes them look cheap. What can I say, I prefer nice packaging!
Overall, I do recommend checking them out….I am sure that whatever your skin tone is, you will find your perfect nude.
Until next time…..
