What is that lipstick shade?
It’s a lipliner from Sephora collection- a $5 Nano lip liner in #14- “Radiant Rosy.”
The universally flattering lipshade
I’ve found as a makeup artist that there’s one lip color that looks universally flattering on every skin tone. Rose. It just always works. Maybe because it isn’t too bold, too boring, too warm, or too cool. It isn’t too anything. It’s the perfect amount of color for an every day natural look.
If you don’t believe me, just check out these before and afters of three different women who just apply rosy cheeks and lips.
So if you’re new to trying on lipstick and are overwhelmed with the selection, it’s safe to say a rose shade would work on you.
Or, if you’re a long time lipstick lover but just want to add something to your collection, you might be surprised that you don’t have a rose shade lipstick amongst your classic reds, bright fuchsias or glossy nudes. Sometimes you don’t want to go bold or daring. Sometimes you just want to look like yourself with a little something special. That’s what a rose lipstick does.
