Hi, I'm Natalie and 80% of my 100 lip products are nude. I don't know if it's general reluctance to wear anything bright, or sheer stubborness to find the perfect nude for me. Either way, I have a serious nude stash and it just won't stop growing.
Anyhoo, Wet 'n' Wild launched last week, and as Kellie is on a self-imposed shopping ban, I took one for the team and headed off to check out the range. 10 products (7 of them lip products), a nipple flash and a whopping $46 later and I was ready to go home and play with my new goodies.
Say what? The ridiculousy cheap haul? 7 new lippies? Oh, right, the nipple flash. Well how else was I supposed to find my perfect nude lipstick?!
Haha. AS IF! No, I do not flip a nip in the middle of the store when lipstick shopping. But according to some, erm, experts, that's exactly what we should be doing. Well, maybe not exactly, but in theory anyway.
Yes ladies, the answer to the eternal quest of 'What is the perfect shade of nude lipstick for me' has in fact been right in front of you (-r boobs) the whole time.
The perfect nude lipstick shade for you is the colour of your nipples.
This bizarre revelation came about on The Doctors (don't judge me, I spend a lot of time online and stuff just pops up). There wasn't much talk to the theory behind the claim, other than 'nature knows best' and who are we to argue with such logic?
So, in the interests of, well, satisfying my curiosity really, I'm going to put this to the test - but one woman does not an experiment make. Anyone game to give it a go with me? If it helps Wet 'n' Wild lipsticks start at $3 and there's a varied shade range...so you know, it's not a 'spensy experiment. And erm, if you get busted for accidental nippage slippage, don't tell them I sent you, Queenie will tell me off.
