PRIDE 🏳️‍🌈

Hey, everyone! Happy Pride Month! The start of this month really inspired me to break out my bright colors, get creative, and create a look to celebrate the movement! I had so much fun creating this look, and I may be posting more Pride-inspired looks before the month is over!

Hey guys!

I have been absolutely in love with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette lately 😍 I attempted my first halo eye with it for a night out, and it inspired me to go for a total vampy grunge look.

Base: Fenty Beauty primer and foundation in shade #120, Tarte Shape Tape concealer, Marc Jacobs Beauty O!mega bronzer, NARS Orgasm blush

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (in Taupe and Medium Brown) and clear Brow Gel

Glow: Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill highlighter in Champagne Pop

Lips: Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Trust Issues

I have seen some Youtubers say that they’ve had issue with blending out the colors in Subculture. I made sure to use a very light hand when applying and blending colors and being careful not to overblend.

As you can see, the Give Me Some Nude Lip Set offers nude lip products in a variety of undertones and finishes. Since each product is so different, I’ll give each a brief review:

  • Marc Jacobs (P)Outliner in Prim(Rose): Undoubtedly my favorite piece in the set. The lip liner is very creamy, applied smoothly, and the shade was extremely flattering for my skintone. It’s actually very similar to my natural lip color, so it’s great for no-makeup-makeup or work-appropriate looks!
  • Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste: Namaste is a warm nude liquid lipstick. The formula is light and mousse-y and applies evenly. The color is pretty flattering and doesn’t pull too orange, a common problem with warm nudes for me. The only drawback is that the formula does not really set, so this liquid lipstick is not transfer-free.
  • Nudestix Lip + Cheek Crayon in Whisper: Whisper is a midtone nude pencil. This is the first Nudestix product I’ve ever tried and I’m impressed with the formula. It’s very pigmented without being chalky or drying. The color is not particularly flattering on me, but I would definitely use this product in another color.
  • NARS Dolce Vita: This is a sheer, rosy nude lipstick. I own the Velvet Matte version of Dolce Vita and was surprised that the lipstick version was so sheer. The finish is slightly dewy when applied, but the formula is very comfortable and provides an even wash of color over the lips.
  • Laura Mercier Lipstick in Milky Way: Milky Way is a brown nude lipstick with a cream finish. It’s very pigmented but the formula felt very thick on my lips. The color was not flattering on me at all, unfortunately, because it washed me out really badly!

Overall, I think the Give Me Some Nude Lip Set is a great value for people who are looking to explore the nude lip trend to see what colors are right for them. I think it would be rare for all five products to work for a single person, so there would likely be some that go unused. For someone that dislikes clutter, that could be a dealbreaker. Since the only product I truly liked was the Marc Jacobs liner, I believe my money would be better spent on a full-size version of that rather than this set.
