Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs Collection

I like nude lipsticks but due to my medium skin tone, I have not found any nude lipsticks which look good on me and don't make me look washed out.

Maybelline has released a new lipstick collection called The Buffs. They have 10 shades but at my Walmart, they only had 5 or 6 shades offered.

I picked 930 Truffle Tease which is in the middle of their shade spectrum. There are a few shades lighter than this but when I swatched on my hand, they either look too light or too pink. If you have lighter skin tone, those lighter shades would work for you.

The swatch does not look too nude on skin. It is a natural nude shade with more brownish tone to it than other shades. I tend to go for lipsticks with more earth tone. Find those work better for me so I don't look sick.

This is how it looks on my lips. Loving it so far. It is quite moisturizing but not as moisturizing or sheer as the Revlon lip butter. This is very pigmented and slides on lips quite smoothly. 

Do you like nude lipsticks? What is your go-to nude lipstick at the moment?


  1. That's Walmart Canada for you, only offer half the shades! That is a nice nude on you.


    1. yes, I was kind of bummed out that only half the shades are offered. But I'm used to being in a small town. I am considered lucky to have some of the new beauty products come to my town. Thanks very much!

  2. Nude lipsticks are as tricky as red lipsticks! You never know until it is on you.
    I think you picked a very nice nude for you. Very flattering!
    I myself like nude with a little of pink thrown in, and I'm loving the GA #103 so far. ;)

  3. this really suits you! it was great that maybelline includes nudes for so many different skintones in their collection.
