Your Perfect Nude Lippie: Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss Review and Swatch Pictures

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss Review and Swatch pictures

I know that I'm not the only one that has a bit of a problem finding great nude lippies that look right with my skin tone. And nude lippies are everywhere this season. I'm also not a lipstick girl at heart. I keep trying, but I will reach for a gloss or tinted balm 9 times out of 10 when given the option. So, a whole new line up of nude-ish lip glosses? From one of my favorite brands? Sign me up!

This gloss formulation is pretty great. I don't think that it is sticky at all, and I don't really notice a smell or taste to it at all. (Note, there are reviews on the UD website saying it has a strong chemical taste and scent. I don't have that at all, and I'm usually sensitive to those issues, I almost wonder if there was a bad batch?) The colors vary in their amount of pigmentation, but they all allow your lips to show through. I think they're very hydrating, more so than many of my lip balms. Which is great since we can't seem to shake the last bit of winter around my area!

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss Swatches

There are 9 colors. I have to admit that while you can see a difference on my arm for the left 5 glosses (through Freestyle), on the lip I can't really tell those 5 apart. The differences are very subtle (FYI, if you right click on that pic above you should be able to open it in a new window, it is 2x that size to help you see the little shimmer and such). There's more difference for the other 4 on the right, especially Streak and Lovechild.

• Walk of Shame: Pale nude-pink with subtle micro-shimmer
• Nooner: Light neutral nude
• Rule34: Medium brown nude
• Naked: Nude-pink with pearly pink shift
• Freestyle: Brown nude with subtle mirco-shimmer
• Liar: Soft pink-mauve
• Beso: Deep pink-mauve
• Streak: Coral-peach
• Lovechild: Medium pink

I've been using mostly Nooner and Naked, but have Beso in my pocket as I type this post. What's your favorite nude lippie this season?
