LOTD: Silk Naturals XXX + Bitten

What do you do with 2 colours that look pretty extreme on your lips?

Silk Naturals XXX Ultra Nude Matte Vegan Lipstick

XXX is ultra nude,and very light- it’s kind of nifty on its own, but it also works great as a base to make other colors appear more neutral.  XXX has wonderful coverage and blends beautifully with other colors.

Ingredients:  Certified Organic Castor and Jojoba Oils, Avocado Oil, Organic Candelilla Wax, Cranberry Oil, Raspberry Oil, Passionfruit Oil, Carnuaba Wax.  Also contains:  Mica, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide

My grouse: This is awesome as a lip concealer that doesn’t dry, but moisturises. However, this can be too nude i.e. blah/dead/colourless and wash you out if you have an almost nekkid face.

Silk Naturals Bitten Sheer Cabernet Red Kisser Slicker

Bitten Organic Lip Gloss is the Fall version of Damsel.  It’s a true red, absolutely sheer- sort of like you ate a lollypop.  It’s deeper, and more red than Damsel, and a true red compared with the more purple Berry Nice.

Ingredients: Certified Organic Castor, Jojoba and Avocado Oils, Beeswax, Candillia Wax, Carnauba Wax, mica, flavor. Color contains Iron Oxide, FD&C Colors

My grouse: This is such a lovely shade, that reminds me of my red wines. I enjoy looking at it in the tube. On my lips, however, it ages me. Probably owing to the depth and tone of the shade, which doesn’t sit well with my yellow Asian Chinese skintone.

This is how the lipstick and lipgloss swatch in real life. 1 single layer to the left and several times to the right.

XXX topped with Bitten

Let the 2 combine, with XXX as a base and Bitten applied atop. You get a healthy looking, almost nude shade but with a peachy red hue to it 🙂 Still complementary with smoky eyes or neutral made up days. A most versatile and wearable nude shade.
