I’m a fan of lipsticks. With just a quick swipe, they add color and a certain bit of ooomph to an otherwise plain face.
For supermarket runs and days when I can’t be bothered to bring a large bag, I only carry a small tub of powder and the deepest, darkest plum lippie. Yes, I am the girl with an aversion for pink and red shades – I prefer my shades very dark, totally “The Craft” instead of the “Legally Blonde.”
However, there are days when the mood and situation calls for something more subdued. Days like these is when I choose to go Nude… Nude lippies, that is.
It’s the perfect go-to color all year round, a quick swipe will automatically make a statement to the “no-make-up make-up” look with just the slightest color to make its presence known.
But did you know that nude lipsticks come in shades that, if not matched with the skin tone, may end up giving apale-faced look? Good thing Ever Bilena, the country’s leading cosmetics brand, offers a spectrum of shades in the Matte Lipstick Nude Collection to ensure that there’s a perfect shade for every skin type.
For instance, tinges of dusty, baby pink will work best for women with alabaster or fair complexion. This will warm up the lips and draw a separation between the lips and the skin. With Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mirrored Mocha, they can immediately color to the face with its fabulous mix of nude and red.
Meanwhile, beige and caramel hues are perfect for medium skin tone. Go a shade lighter than your skin tone with The Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Skin, then add dimension to your whole look with smoky, more defined eye make-up.
Lastly, women with dark skin tone should go for shades that are darker than their complexion. To brighten the face, use bronzy browns with hints of shimmer or dusty rose with toffee shades like Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Port. Its subdued red color is guaranteed to flatter this skin type.
The Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Nude Collection (P165 each) has a stunning matte finish and has a rich pigment that glides smoothly. What’s even better is that each lipstick in this line-up is rich in vitamin E content to ensure that its matte finish won’t dry up the lips, making it a worthy addition to your make-up arsenal.
Personally, I like Ever Bilena because it’s a make up brand that is affordable but works really well for every skin types. I have been using some of their products, mixing them with high-end name brands, and they work just fine – complementing very well with other make-up brands. It’s high quality without the steep price tag.
