As soon as these were launched a few months ago, I had my eye on them. They seemed to be really popular sellers at the time because whenever I headed into Boots or Superdrug to check them out they were always sold out. For some reason I just stopped looking for them because they were never there, and when they were there the buzz had gone and I wasn't as interested anymore.
However since Boots are back in 3 for 2 mode, I treated myself to Julianne's nude. Finally I would know if the formulation was worth all the bother or not.
All the shades in the Nudes collection are lovely. Each one is inspired by a different celebrity which I think is a cool idea. The lipstick I chose was influenced by the actress Julianne Moore (Crazy Stupid Love). Having said that, it had no baring on me picking it. I obviously looked at the lipsticks represented by celebrities I knew initially but in the end I based it on whatever colour I fancied the most and thought would suit me more.
Julianne's nude is one of the more pinky shades out of the range with a little peach thrown in for good measure. It shows up in the picture below as quite a baby doll pink but the true representation is a lot deeper, darker shade. Having said that, I like that in sunlight it looks a slightly different colour. Both looks are super wearable for girls with pale skin (my biggest worry).
The formulation is beautiful. It's super creamy and moisturising. It leaves a satin, almost glossy finish to the lips which I absolutely adore because it makes the product so much more comfortable to wear.
Although it does fade throughout the day, especially due to eating and drinking, there is colour left behind which I really like. I'm not so fond of lipsticks that completely disappear after an hour or two as I question what the point was in applying it in the first place!
Over all I'm really pleased with my choice and certainly feel like this is a line I would invest in again.
Have you tried any of the lipsticks from this line? Which one's your favourite?
