Maybelline Color Sensational- The Buffs: Untainted Spice

I love a good nude lipstick. As a woman of colour, it's always hard to find the right shade. Sometimes the colour is ashy or way too light. It's a never ending battle.

I was so excited when the Color Sensational® The Buffs - Lip Color By Maybelline collection ($9.99 CDN) showed up at my doorstep. One thing to know about Maybelline lipsticks: Always pigmented, creamy and long-lasting.

Depending on your skin tone there are 10 colours in the line to choose from. The colour I am showcasing is called untainted spice. It's the second darkest colour in the line.

Colours in the line:
Bare All
Truffle Tease
Blushing Beige
Nude Lust
Maple Kiss
Stormy Sahara
Untainted Spice
Espresso Exposed

Tip: If you are trying to warm up the colour. I would suggest getting a lip pencil that is a little bit darker than your skin tone- feathering it on your lips and then applying lipstick in the middle with a lip brush.

If you see these beauties in your drugstore- I suggest you 
swatch them and find your closest match!


  1. Very pretty color on you! It is so hard to find a flattering nude lip color. I had the perfect nude lipstick but it was by Prescriptives and was discontinued. It had a bit of a grey tinge to it; I picked up one of these that looked close, but it looks like grey paint on my lips, not the soft muted nude I was hoping for. I'll just have to keep trying...

  2. Looks great on you, I`m testing out a couple lipsticks by this collection and I love them. My favorite is blushing beige, such a pretty pink nude that matches my skin tone perfectly.

  3. This is pretty. I still have to purchase these Buff lipsticks. lol

  4. i can't seem to find these anywhere!!

  5. Such a fan of finding 'fool' proof nudes for WOC and I think this Buff line is worth the try! Will keep my eye out for them in stores.
