Maybelline Nude Embrace Color Sensational the Buffs Lipstick is one of four, limited edition shades launched with the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Spring 2014 Collection.
This one is…interesting!
I was all hopes and dreams that Maybelline Nude Embrace the Buffs Lipstick would be a naked MLBB (my lips but better) shade of pink on my lips but unfortunately I can’t pull this one off. This is a dusky lighter shade of mauve with a pink undertone. The color is very unique but not something I can easily wear unfortunately even with gloss on top.
The formula has a soft consistency with an easy glide on formula and a satin finish. Some of the Buffs Collection has been hit or miss with their dryness levels but this has a nice slickness going on and a fairly nice creamy consistency that doesn’t feel dry however, it does LOOK dry as it emphasizes the tiniest of natural lip lines very easily. I wouldn’t recommend the shade for those with naturally dry lips. It does have a perfume-y flavor and fragrance that all the Color Sensational Lipsticks embrace, some folks feel it borders playdoh!
The color is quite unique but I’m unsure how many people will feel comfortable in Nude Embrace. On the upside it’s very promising that Maybelline went ahead and releases four new limited edition shades so soon after they launched the Buffs Permanent Collection for Spring 2014! It’s been a mere weeks in between the two collections!
If you are loving Nude Embrace best get to hunting it down as it is available for a limited time with this collection exclusively.
Anyone own it?
