Eureka Moment: Almost Nude

Monday is here again!  Are you dreading this day?  As for me, I will probably feel that when I get back to work next week!  As for now, I'm enjoying quiet times with my dear baby at the same time, trying to regain energy to get back to work as my brain haven't been functioning properly for the past weeks!  Imagine dreaming about the need to feed baby and standing up randomly late at night wondering if baby is really crying or was it just my imagination?  *laughs*  Mothers out there, I'm sure you can totally relate!

Anyways, since it's a Monday, I want to keep this post light and straight to the point.  Remember how I NEVER get to wear nude or brown colored lipsticks as they ALWAYS look weird on me?  If I want to sport a nude lip color, I have to wear strong eye makeup which of course, I cannot, for now, because I want to rub my face against baby Kyle and I don't want makeup transferring on his cute face! 

When I received 3 lipsticks from the L'Oreal Color Riche line, I almost didn't gave them the time of day as I used to own several shades of them!  (Thanks to my Aunt from Canada for gifting me those.) 

Thankfully, the press samples came in red, pink and brown!  I (almost immediately) judged the brownish shade and put it on my "least favorite among the three" list.  Recently I need to go out for a short dinner and I had to wear something toned down as it was just a quiet get-together with my family and they are quite conservative in terms of lip color so I picked the brown colored shade called "Fuzzy Taupe".  

It was a EUREKA MOMENT for me....

L'Oreal Color Riche in Fuzzy Taupe works well on my skin tone and I don't look like a sick girl at all!  The shade is not as "nude" as expected but since my lips are quite pigmented to start with, this shade is almost nude enough for me!

And the added plus factor?  Well, don't judge the lipstick on my lips as my lips are EXTREMELY dry to begin with but the L'Oreal Color Riche line is amazingly more moisturizing as compared to the old version I've tried! 

So yup!  Eureka Moment for me for finding a good, very natural-looking lip color that works even without much makeup on!

Of course, keep in mind that this may look a bit darker on people with pale lips!

What's your "to-go-to" bare faced lipsticks?
