We could have written six hundred, nay, thousand words on why we should stop calling beige lipsticks and nailpolishes and shoes and clothes “nude” or “buff” or “skin-coloured” or “flesh” already. Been there, said that. Instead, we decided to put this old but oft-trending idea of “nude” to the screen test. Photographer Sarah Blais (of Uniform Project fame) recently shot for us a handful of gorgeous girls and one surprise guest. Six different faces, one lipstick (Revlon’s “Nude Attitude,” $10.99 at Shoppers). You be the judge.
