Leave it to a brand all about sexiness to come up with a great nude gloss. This feminine collection of eight shades are what I reached for all during New York Fashion Week. First, a little about Naked Princess: a new brand that is all about subtle and sexy. The line includes lounge wear, books, bath & beauty and makeup. And they have a new flagship store opening in March 2014. Frankly, I wasn’t ready to like them. I find myself drawn towards brands devoted to beauty. But these guys did something different.
The Naked Shine Lipgloss have a certain lightweight slip that makes them a joy to wear. They aren’t tacky in the least and come with a sheer wash of color. Technically lip plumpers (which I tend to get irritated by), I don’t get any tingle in the least from these glosses. But I can definitely see an illusion of fuller lips with the mirror-shine. All the shades are sheer and either are or border on nude.
The formula also has skin care properties. Peptides can help reduce fine lines and hydrating ingredients like shea butter and sweet almond oil add shine and hydration. And I adore the scent. It is sophisticated, subtle and gourmand with a hint of vanilla.
