Maybelline The Buffs Lipstick Touchable Taupe & Untainted Spice Review & Swatches

Sunday, February 2, 2014

Hello Beauties,

How are you all today? I hope all of you are having a great day. I am sitting in front of my window right now and enjoying a beautiful snow fall. This weather has been crazy some days its 2 degrees out and some days its 50! I like the 50, but what can you do. So lets start with saying that NUDE is everywhere. Seems like every company is coming out with "naked" or "nude" categorized products.

Today I will be reviewing two of the new Maybelline "The Buffs" collection lipstick. I was really not interested in the collection when it first came out, I am not a big fan of nude shades. But passing it in the drugstore, the lipsticks looked great. So I picked up two, and I really regret picking them up. First of all I am never a nude lipstick person, I never know which shade to pick, and secondly they all look ugly on me. So lets get on the two lipsticks I picked out.

Touchable Taupe: Is a deep chocolate milk shade. (Yes I just described a lipstick with chocolate milk). At the store I thought this lipstick will look great on me, but when I got home and put it on, it looked horrible. I just hated the shade on me, it is such a deep rich shade.

Untainted Spice: Is a pink medium brown. It looked alright on me, but just too dark. It made my cheeks look small. Just didn't like this shade at all too.
   Even though the collection is great and the pigmentation is amazing I was just not a fan of these lipsticks. The formula of the lipsticks is great, goes on smoothly and stays for 3-4 hours. I don't think so I will be buying more shades. But to makeup for these lipsticks I bought my self two new MAC lipsticks. Great right?

Let me know in the comments below if you tried any of the lipsticks from this line? Which is your favorite shade?

           Thank you so much for reading. I hope all of you have a wonderful day.

  1. Yes... I bought these and had the same reaction. That taupe color made my lips look dead- waste of my mula... and i love nudes! Lol

  2. I thought these were just ok. Not as great as some of the more vivid colors in the line.

    Take Care,
    Mandy Jean
