Lipstick Bandits: Nudes

What do we mean when we say nude? Is it the color of your lips, the concealer lip, or somewhere in between? It gets a little confusing when we use this term when everyone has their own definition (rendering it not a very good word since it confounds communication), but I suppose in the beauty blog world we have pictures to make up for that. 

The Bandit Collective didn't define nude for this assignment, so I will be interested to see how my fellow masked villainsfriends see it (links below, as usual). For me, nude is somewhere in between concealer and original lip color, so in my mind there are many shades of nudes. And because I never properly wrote about it (but used it in this post), here's Rouge Dior #314 Beige Angelique.

I screwed up the white balance on my camera so I look much more olive in my pictures. It's an interesting color on me, and I'm surprised I actually like looking so bronzed (after years of wanting to look lighter). The purpose of stating it is just so you know the below is not a product of excessive bronzing. 

Eyes: Chanel Prelude Eyeshadow Quad; Cheeks: LMdB Creme Fresh Tint in Tenne

Beige Angelique is a beige peach shade on me. Going by the tube, I would assume it wouldn't go well with my skin tone, but in real life it works. I do think that as far as nude peach shades go, Burberry Nude Peach looks better on me. 

We are missing a lot of comrades this time around, but please do still give Bloomin' Beauty, Call It Beauty, Makeup Morsels, and Rocaille Writes a visit!


  1. Well well, it looks like many of you like their Dior for nudes! Very pretty choice!

  2. I like tanned Wands! :D These new Diors are just incredible. I went to swatch them and fell in looooovvvvee. No wonder both you and Paris picked them.

  3. I will NEVER be able to pull this one off, but you look great! I tend to look really really horrible when I have something to a similar effect on for some reason!

  4. Cheekz! It's perfect on you! You look gorgeous!

  5. Mariella- We definitely like our Diors!

    Geekz- Hehehe. Mine's not new, it's part of the old Rouge Dior formula (Larie is my lipstick twin this time), but I DO like the new Rouge Dior Nudes. The formula is even better than the original line!

    Sunny- Never say never, Sunny! I look horrible in this too if I don't put enough blush or eyeshadow. It's a weird shade on me, but worked for this particular look

    Tracy- <3!

  6. Lipstick twins, lipstick twins! I love how it looks different on both of us. But I think it shows that it can still complement people with different coloring! You look gorgeous, Wandz!

  7. Aaah, Wandz, how gorgeous - could I steal your hair for a day... or more like a week? Thanks for the mention, that's super sweet :)

  8. Wands, you are absolutely STUNNING! Your lighting is just ... perfect.

    ♥ Jessica

  9. Perfection! Love how it goes so well with your eye makeup here too

  10. Your new lighting is wow! Studio shots every time :D I sort of wish I'd gone with Angelique Beige too then we could be triplets! :D

  11. Hi Xiao, you look beautiful in this photo. Do you remember what you used for contouring? :) Thx


  12. Kate- I didn't contour my cheeks in these photos. I used LMdB Creme Fresh Tint in Tenne as blush (specific placement with blush can emphasize cheekbones too!)

  13. Everythіng is very ορen with a really clear explanatіon of the isѕues.
    It was tгuly informаtіvе. Youг sitе is useful.
