The Secret To Getting Nude Lips Just Like Jennifer Lopez

How does one get those sultry, perfectly nude lips just like J.Lo?  It's really easy.  Just buy the L'oreal Paris Collection Privee "Jennifer's NUDE" lipstick created for her with her name on it...











I am a big fan of a good nude lipstick that doesn't wash me out.  It's my comfort zone look.  So when I found out that L'Oreal had one named "Jennifer's Nude" well, let's just say I had to buy it just because it had my name on the sticker...seriously.  Ok, so they didn't name it after moi, but it is still cool to own a really AWESOME lipstick with your first name on it!!  I'm also a big Jennifer Lopez fan so that added to my intrigue of buying it, because the singer/celebrity/mama can rock a NUDE LIP like no other!  

This shade I'm wearing is part of a 4 piece collection of different nude variations from L'Oreal Paris  of 4 celebrity faces : Eva Longoria, Doutzen Kroes, Freida Pinto, and of course Jennifer Lopez.

After some research online it looks like they also had ones for a couple other female celebs like red head Julianne Moore, but I didn't see them when I bought mine at Target. I'm thinking this JLo shade must be fairly new bc I searched and searched for them being sold online but keep seeing that they are breaking with matching nail polishes in Spring 2014 so I guess just keep your eyes peeled in your local drugstore for these lipsticks and polishes.

What I love about this lipstick :

  • The black matte packaging with the gold touches makes it look like a super expensive lipstick you would buy at Sephora or fancy department store.  Y'all know I'm a sucker for a pretty tube of lipstick.
  • The formula and texture of this is divine.  It glides on and feels extremely hydrating and buttery to the lips without being too slippery.  Which is also a shame it feels so good, because I have been constantly applying it, which means it's going away fast!
  • It smells nice, which means it almost has no scent.  
  • This specific color is literally my perfect nude, because being a fair to medium skin tone (NOT like JLo ironically) it has the right amount of warmth to it where I don't look dead or washed out, but still has an ever so slight bit of pink that makes my lips look healthy and not brown like some nudes do.
  • And for the $6 price I paid - well it is worth every penny.

If you want to see an awesome comparison of all four colors, check out Beautezine.com and the swatches of each nude offered.  I really like the looks of them all except for the Doutzen one that seems like it would wash me out being a bit too frosty light pink.  Overall, I'd say this collection is a must look at for anyone in the market for an easy to wear neutral lipstick.
