Nude and Cocoa and Everything In Between

I’m noticing a few brands have these lovely nude to cocoa nail colors for fall/holiday season. And you might make the argument that brown is brown. But as you’ve probably learned by now that there’s 50 shades of anything and the uber chic polishes in this post are so different from each other that I though of putting these promo photos all in one place. I will definitely do a separate post on the actual polishes as soon as Le Metier de Beaute’s polishes arrive in store.

Let’s take a look…

Laura Mercier came out with theirs first as part of their Fall 2012 Cinema Noir Collection…

Are you indulging in this very trendy yet classic for your tips and toes? It’s a classic therefore a no-brainer for me. Just waiting for Le Metier de Beaute’s collection to arrive and I’m all set 🙂

Dior Rouge Dior Nude Lip Blush in 459 Charnelle

I am all about anything nude and neutral (and taupe). So I am excited about this line. If you’re into red-toned balm-like products, I believe Fresh has that covered already. Nudes belong to Dior in my opinion.

According to Dior…

From the first application, lips are perfectly hydrated, plumped and smoothed, thanks to a formula containing a high concentration of active treatment ingredients.

Rouge Dior Nude is available in 10, new, warm or cool, blush-effect shades that add a transparent touch of warmth or coolness to the complexion. From beige to bronze and from greyish-beige to rosewood, they echo the nude coloured silhouettes of the latest Dior shows.

According to Sephora…

What it is:
A rich and creamy balm with a semi-sheer finish. 

What it does:
This lip balm instantly hydrates, plumps, and smooths lips for a naturally elegant finish. Its treatment formula creates an illuminating blush effect for instant radiance.

I have two out of the 10. After wearing these two for almost two weeks, I am now seriously considering buying all of them. So for this post I am highlighting 459 Charnelle.

Packaging | Housed in a dark blue slightly rectangular tube. Product twists up revealing the word “Dior” embossed on the body of the lipstick.

Color and Texture | It is a pinkish beige that is more pink than beige. They are sheer but the color really shows off nicely on the lips. The formula is particularly creamy and hydrating. I really didn’t notice the plumping effect.
