Lipstick Queen Nothing But the Nudes Lipstick is on my hit list for Fall! This new collection features three all new, nude lipsticks that will become a permanent part of Lipstick Queen’s Collection and it arrives just in time for the cooler weather because as far as I’m concerned a smoky brown eye and nude lipstick is totally my autumn look of choice! Forget mattes and metallics give me nudes and smoke!
“Just like the truth, there are many variations of nude”-Poppy King, Lipstick Queen Founder.
Indeed Poppy and you gift us with three luxurious nudes that have a hint of a gorgeous sheen and a beautifully formulated buttery texture that will keep our lips happy and our looks gorgeous.

I think the shades definitely lean towards complimenting a certain skin tone. I’m an advocate of saying that you should wear colors you’re most comfortable with or shades you really like. I’m not one for limiting what I can wear because of my skin tone. But I think nude lipstick is the exception. Some nudes look better on certain skin types and I do believe that’s the case with these shades. I consider myself medium light with warmer undertones and I felt like The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth suited me best where as The Truth was probably a better shade for someone with a lighter skin and a pinker undertone. Granted, you can wear anything you want but I do think the shades were created with to compliment certain skin tones and I think the two darker are best for medium or darker skin tones where as the lighter shade is best for lighter complexions.
As with all Lipstick Queen Lipsticks the formula doesn’t disappoint. The texture is a little dense at first but after a single application it becomes much more softer. I’d liken it to a lip balm or butter as it has a balm-y texture that glides quite easily over lips. A single pass provided excellent full pigmentation with a high sheen finish that gave the lipstick a certain glossy look or as the brand described it, a vinyl-like finish. I found the formula comfortable to wear without migration issues and a wear of around five hours without color fading in that time period. I detected no flavor or fragrance.
These are the perfect shades for pairing up with a smoky eye look and glistening peach blush. They’ll follow you through Fall to create some very beautiful lip looks. I was quite happy with the formula but I just wish they released them in more shades! Perhaps she’ll extend the line at some point because if she did I’d totally buy more.
