Lipstick Queen “Nothing But The Nudes” Shade Extension – Review, Swatches and Looks

A few summers ago Lipstick Queen came out with the “Nothing But The Nudes” lipsticks, a collection of three neutral and wearable shades.

I still use those lipsticks to this day, so image how excited I was when I saw that Lipstick Queen was extending the shade range by adding 6 new lipsticks to the collection.

The shades in this collection include 4 lighter shades and 2 deeper shades. Similar to the original launch, the lipsticks come in a beige box featuring lip prints of the corresponding shade on a reflective background.

The lipsticks are housed in a simple beige lipstick tube with the Lipstick Queen logo.

Let’s take a closer look at the six new shades.

Naked Truth, the lightest shade in the new collection, is a cantaloupe coral shade.

Truth or Bare is a pale caramel.

Sweet as Honey is a pastel ballet slipper pink.

Blooming Blush is a light salmon shade (I almost described it as “creamy salmon” but that made it sound like a meal rather than a lipstick).

Hanky Panky Pink is a slightly sheer, muted rose.

Cheeky Chestnut, the deepest shade of the collection, is a red-toned sienna brown.

What I like about this collection is that the formula is very consistent. It’s not like other brands I’ve used where one lipstick is fine and another one from the same collection applies in patches or doesn’t stick to the lips. One thing to note is that the lipstick bullet itself is a lot softer than your average standard lipstick. It’s like it was left out in the sun for a little while, so it is a bit melty and pliable.

If I could change one thing about this collection, I would make the four lightest shades a bit more different from each other. They are quite similar in shade, differing by their undertone, and I would love for 2 of those shades to be more mid-toned than light.

Lipstick Queen’s “Nothing But The Nudes” original 3 shades are regulars in my collection and are very well-loved, and these lipsticks definitely fall into that category. If I were to pick a favourite shade from this collection, it would be Hanky Panky Pink, but I also really like Cheeky Chestnut because they both really stand out from the original 3 shades as well as the new ones.

You can find Lipstick Queen’s “Nothing But The Nudes” lipsticks at Murale, Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique, Ulta and online.

    Those shades are stunning! I’ve heard about this brand but I never really got to try any of their lipsticks. Think I’ll get a few! I’m in love with “Sweet as Honey” and “Hanky Panky Pink”.
    Thank you for the swatches, your photos look beautiful as always <3
