I may have cried a little bit when the Bandits suggested to do nudes for September, because I don't do nudes, and my brain ran into panick mode: I don't have nude lipsticks, and nudes look no good on me.
Well actually, thinking further, that is actually true if you think of those very pale concealer-like nudes. Remember 2008 when all the fuss was about Gosh Darling or Mac Creme D'Nude? I got both back them and they looked AWFUL on me. That kind of nude is just a big no-no for a girl like me, who needs contrast to look alive!
But if you define nudes as "barely there", then I can play along. Although I always tend to favor a bright lip, some looks just look better with a more discrete lip color. For me, those shades will invariably be brown-based, I have no idea why, but I think they suit me better, and they look closer to my natural lip color than anything pink-based.

I don't think the swatch looks particularly pretty, and to be honest the bullet isn't much more visually appealing, but once it's applied on me, it does work (in my opinion).
And as you can see I have it paired with a glowy, rather neutral face, and a neutral taupy eye, so it's all variations around brown-based colors even if they are at different places on the cool/warm spectrum.
I will just add that this lipstick is quite moisturizing and comfortable without slipping too much, and that it has a slightly minty smell and taste.
Rouge Bunny Rouge lipsticks are €27 and are available from Zuneta.
