If you are on the search for the perfect nude shade of lipstick, look no further, as one brand has been manufacturing a certain colour for decades, and recently tested it on an amazing 25 skin tones!
Make Up Forever created the nude lipstick – Rose Wood, back in the late 1990’s, but it has become so popular that they have kept making it. So while other shades have come and gone, this one nude shade has survived the test of time.
Rose Wood Nude costs $22 (in the US) or £18 (in the UK), and is a beige nude tone that is said to flatter all skin tones. It has a satin finish and is highly pigmented, meaning one swipe is enough to provide full coverage.
The creamy formula leaves lips moisturised and hydrated, and the silky-smooth application and single-stroke coverage mean that it is great value for money. The ultra-pigmented colour leaves lips looking radiant and you only need a little for maximum effect.
The application relies on the innovative high-precision bullet that allows for easy coverage and targeted colour. The colour is long-lasting and comfortable to wear. All these facts make this nude shade lipstick one of the most popular nudes on the market, not only with us ordinary folk, but with our favourite celebrities too.
Taylor Swift posted a picture of herself wearing a beige cashmere sweater and a nude lipstick on Tumblr. A fan, who loved the lipstick, asked what shade it was. To which Swift replied:
“It’s Artist Rouge Cream by Makeup Forever in Rose Wood.”
Swift wore the Rose Wood nude lipstick while she was visiting a 96 year-old fan Cyrus Porter in Missouri, a World War II veteran, who had seen Taylor in concert two times previously. Swift heard that he wanted to attend her latest concert but she decided to save him the trouble and performed a concert to him.
