BEAUTY: Go Nude This Winter with ARTDECO

A nude lip is always a classic and gorgeous look for just about any season. Winter is a great time to bring out a more neutral look, but it can sometimes be hard to master. Often you will see a nude lip that is either too dark or too light, rising the popular question of how do you really know what shade is right for you. I am a firm believer of wearing what feels right and always having options, which is why these ARTDECO nude lipsticks will add the perfect nude shades to your winter look and are conveniently available at Shoppers Drug Mart.

TEST DRIVE: Colour Whisper Lipstick by Maybelline

Every week, our resident Beauty Junkie, Marissa Enge, tests out the latest and greatest on the beauty counters in our TEST DRIVE. From drug store finds to products that are top-of-the-line, she gives us the full scoop without any holdbacks.

Product: Colour Whisper Lipstick by Maybelline, $9.99.

Where to Buy: Available in mass market retailers and drugstores.

Tagline: Sometimes a whisper says more than a shout.

Our Thoughts: Is it a gloss or a lipstick? The secret behind Colour Whisper are see-through pigments in a weightless gel-matrix formula. This silicone gel colour glides on

so smooth and easily with just a hint of colour. It’s not a long lasting formula, but I loved that I was able to achieve a smooth lip with subtle colour. My lips felt nourished and had a very natural look. These are perfect for daily wear or even a night out on the town.
