I’ve always been terrified of nude lips. When Kylie Jenner and the Kardashian clan rolled up a few years ago with their big nude lips, I knew it was over for me. I have naturally pigmented lips, so nudes always make me look absolutely awful and crazy. My run-in with MAC’s Myth lipstick in high-school was enough for me to swear off nudes forever. 

Enter the terra-cotta lip. Mauvey, but not pink. Nudey, but not white. Browny, but not orange. Basically heaven. I found this beauty at Duane Reade the other day, and it’s the Milani Moisture Matte Lipstick in Matte Beauty.

It’s $5.99, it’s matte, and it’s comfortable to wear. It doesn’t feel drying or smudgy, and it’s decently long-lasting. It made it through a bagel and cup of coffee, which is rare. I think I’m going to buy ten more shades from this range. Have you tried any of these?
