Lancome says: Find three essentials for creating a nude lip look in this New Year’s Eve Neutrals Set.

Baking Beauty says:The products work well, but I would’t consider this a nude lip set at all.

Earlier this month my department store was having a Lancome GWP event that had this amazing shimmery brown eye shadow palette  thatI wanted. So I had to buy something to get that right? 😉

I saw their holiday sets, but they did not have testers out.  I took a change. However, I wish I hadn’t because these colors do not suit me well.

Lancome Nude Lip Set Review

Let’s take a peek at the individual products:

Lip liner in Vintage Rose:Rosy nude lip liner. It glides on and helps prolong lipstick wear. However, I wish the brush was separate as why keep a lip liner when you’ve used it up?

Color Fever Gloss in Heat Stroke:Pink with orange shimmer, non sticky moisturizing gloss.

Mini Le Lipstique in Sheer Natural: Brownish Rose slightly sheer lipstick

Overall the products works well, but the colors aren’t “nude”.

Have you tried any great Lancome products lately?

The shade  Confidence was a bright yet wearable pink. It is opaque in one coat.It had a mirror like shine.

Texture:5/5

It was moisturizing and never left my lips feeling dry.

Ease of use:4/5

The product is a bit on the thick side. This made it difficult to spread with the applicator.

It wore for around 3 hours on me. After this is still left a slight stain behind.

The palette is a mix of bright and smoky shades. It has rich blues, vibrant purples, and sparkling greens.

Pigmentation is hit and miss. Some shades are richly pigmented in one swipe while others are still sheer after 5 passes.

Texture:3/5

Texture was also hit and miss. Most of the lighter shades were soft and easy to work with. However, the matte shades were very dry and stiff. Also, both blushers were dry and hard to blend.

Ease of use:3/5

Packaging:3/5

The packaging is not really easy to carry around as the product description states. Also, it feels clunky compared to other super sized palettes I own.

Value:4/5

If you want to experiment with some brighter, or darker shades this is a great way to do it!

Cost: $24.99

Where to buy: Your local Avon lady or online at meetmark.com

All 4 are on the sheer side if that is your cup of tea.

Hard Candy says:Imagine your lips…in 3D! Our super shiny lip color amplifies the shape of your lips with 3D pearls that create the illusion of depth and volume resulting in fuller, curvaceous lips. This triple duty lip color hydrates, fills and magnifies lips without feeling sticky or tacky.

Pigmentation:4/5

My shade Superficial is a sheer light pink with shimmer. It looks great for barely there makeup or over lipstick.

Texture:5/5

The gloss isn’t sticky or gritty. It also has a good amount of slip, and never left my lips feeling dry.

Ease of use:4/5

It comes with an extra long wand that makes precise application a little more difficult than normal.

Lasting Power:4/5

This wore for around 1-2 hours on me.

Avon Ultra Color Lip Crayon in Show Stopper Pink Review

Effectiveness:4/5

The color is rich and creamy. However, I wouldn’t say they have a high shine finish. It’s more of a satin finish.

Pigmentation:4/5

Shower Stopper Pink is a bright bubblegum pink. There is a level of sheerness there that makes it easy to wear without looking like Nicki Minaj! <3

Texture:5/5

The lip crayon felt more like a balm (think Revlon Lip Butters). It was moisturizing and never left my lips feeling dry or flaky.
