In the beauty world, theres bound to be something that you would normally never pay attention to. Reading a lot of beauty blogs opens my eyes to all kinds of trends and products that I wouldn't usually consider but change is good and sometimes you just need a little push to try new things.
From one shade to another, nude lips aren't something I wear that often. I always worry that it will wash me out or it will give me 'concealer lips' but the new Maybelline Colorsens Nude Lipstick in tantalizing taupe looked like a shade I might be able to pull off. Tantalizing taupe is a nude with a hint of pink, which I think is why it suits my complexion more than a regular nude. This is also a good quality lipstick - good pigmentation, creamy and lasts for a few hours. Finally, a mention to a product I didn't think I would be buying anytime soon - tinted moisturiser. In my younger years, I went through a phase of wearing Hard Candy's tinted moisturiser in sugar cookie until it was discontinued. Since then I've stuck to foundations, though I have used lighter formulations, such as Revlon Nearly Naked but seeing good reviews of the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser made me want to give a try. This stuff has slightly more coverage than your average tinted moisturiser. Don't get me wrong, its still a light base and concealer is required but it helps to even out your skintone and provide a glowy complexion. Its not the best for oily skin - blotting is definitely required but on days where heavy coverage isn't needed than this is a nice option. I'll have a full review soon.
