L’Oreal Fairest Nude lipstick is a darker brown nude with strong cool, blue undertones. Like the rest of L’oreal lipsticks it has a satin finish and a very subtle satiny sheen to it. It stays on the lips for about 3-4 hours. It does transfer well. While I was wearing it, I did not notice it to be either drying or hydrating. It has pretty good pigmentation and usually two swipes will give the full coverage. It does not stain the lips at all.
The color applies very evenly and smoothly. I did not notice any settling in the lip lines and color slipping. Overall, it is a very nice lipstick that due to its coloration would look best on medium to dark skin tones with cool undertones.

Who can pull it off: medium, olive and dark skin tones with cool undertones
