Sometimes I just feel struck by an idea and then I go chasing around for that specific product that got into my head. So mostly these are impulse ‘I-want-it-right-here-right-now’ kind of things and lately I got struck by this idea that I desperately need a hot pink lipstick with a blue undertone. But I wanted it the bluer the better! So I went searching around for it. Frankly I chose the bluest blue color and the lady vendor had her doubts when I showed her the color I want but I frankly didn’t care at the time. So I bought a Maybelline Neo Nude lipstick! Then when I came home and tried it out…I was disappointed. By the color. I started to search for this new Neo Nude line but didn’t find my color: NE08. I think this might have something to do with the face that I bought mine in China, maybe this is some special shade for Asia? I am not sure. But anyway, here I am presenting to you: Maybelline Neo Nude in NE08.
The packaging is quite simple and basic, nothing really wow here. It is quite solid though.
This is my shade: NE08!
The texture is neither too creamy nor too dry – it’s something in between. I prefer applying this lipstick on a balm but it doesn’t dry my lips out.
Maybelline Neo Nude NE08 is a bright flashy pink with a clear blue undertone. This is a very cool shade. It has a glossy finish.
Speaking of the lipstick and its quality: I have absolutely nothing bad to say here. The lipstick is of decent quality and is definitely not bad even though I prefer more creamy lipsticks. It is not very longlasting but will last a couple of hours. The color…well there I made a big mistake. But oh well.
Overall note: B.
Okay and here’s what I’m talking about. Not my color at all!
I think for this color your skin must be at least a bit tanned. It may also look good on blondes…:)
I decided to do something fun and actually try it out on me…I used my favorite taaz (I already did a post on this one, it’s an online makeover website). And I dyed my hair blonde! Haha. I actually think this lipstick looks much better with this hair color ;)
