Let’s state the obvious: this shade isn’t your traditional nude lipstick. When I think of a natural lipstick, a nice light peachy brown with a semi-matte finish comes to mind. However, since it seems like the entire Covergirl Star Wars collection is shimmery or glossy, Nude 70 is no exception. That doesn’t mean this shade is awful, quite the contrary to be honest!
Nude 70 is a light bronze with copper/gold shimmer. It has a creamy texture, and is on the sheerer side. It has a slight frostiness to it, but not nearly as much as Lilac 20. You can build up the coverage from a nice bronze shimmer all the way to a bright copper penny effect. It’s very easy to apply and has a decent wear time, around 4-5 hours. It doesn’t settle into liplines and doesn’t leave a stain. I feel like this can be an everyday shade, but wouldn’t really classify it as a nude lipstick.
With these lipsticks, there is one thing that I find really disappointing. With such a fun collection, why not have awesome names? If only I could rename these lipsticks…Instead of “Nude 70”, how about “Tattoine Sandstorm”? “Lilac 20” would be “Galactic Ice”, and “Dark Purple 50” might be better as “Queen of Naboo”. I feel like Covergirl really missed out on a great opportunity here. 😦
