in The Buffs: maybelline

Like most women I must own countless nude lipsticks. Always on the hunt for that perfect nude, which oddly enough is not easy to find. Earlier this year, Maybelline released The Buffs by Colour Sensational. Eight gorgeous nude shades that will suit any skintone. I love the colour payoff and intensity of these nudes.
Maybelline Canada's lead makeup artist, Grace Lee, shares her tip on finding that right nude shade:
"Think of nude lipstick the same way you'd think about your foundation. To get the right shade, consider your skin colour. For a fairer complexion, a nude that's too beige will appear yellow; instead, pick a nude that's in the pale pink hues. For those with medium tones; I would use a deeper beige to coffee nude."

I personally love the shade Nude Lust #920 and Stormy Sahara #945 (as shown in the image below). The Buffs Collection was used for the Fall 2014 Wes Gordon Show this past New York fashion week. A layering of taupes to recreate a rainy day feel makeup look.
