Quick Experiment: Creating Nude Lips Using Concealer and Gloss

Here's an excerpt from OnSugar blog The Make-Up Blogette.

One reader was asking me if nude lips can be created using a foundation/concealer followed by a lip gloss... and I thought that would make a rather fun and useful blog post. 

First I used NYX Concealer in a Jar (Porcelene) which is frankly too pale for me as a concealer. This color erases my lip color completely, too pale and ghastly for my liking.  It also looks drying, especially on the lower lip.

Then, I applied MAC's Underage lipglass over, for some definition and texture. Still very pale, but I will show you the whole face to put things into perspective. Then I tried another concealer, which is the peachy shades in the Ben Nye concealer wheel.  These are darker in tone. Again, very drying on the lips.  I don't think the difference is very obvious.

The verdict? I think if you like really nude lips, you can certainly try this out!  Kind of drying on the lips though. Also, I guess you can do this as a last resort if you want to explore the whole pale/ nude lips thingy, but are not sure if you want to pay for a nude lipstick at MAC or something. We know it is hard to find a nice nude lipstick at drugstore price range, though I highly recommend NYX round lipsticks for cheap alternatives.
