Nūdus lipsticks are a true work of art. From the elegant and sleek white packaging, standout certified organic formulas and colors, to the simplistic, artful packaging details, these lipsticks are unique natural lipstick gems. As a certifiable lipstick addict, I was more than ecstatic to give these buzz-worthy lipsticks from Down Under a try.
I confess, I’m a bit of a lipstick addict. Lip products get me excited because just adding a little bit of color to your lips can completely change your look without a total makeup overhaul. I’d been lusting over ILIA Beauty’s Arabian Knights Tinted Lip Conditioner ($24, 0.12 oz/3.5 g) for a while and finally purchased it during an online promotion a few months back. I thought it would be a perfect color for Fall and Winter.
Most lip colors that I tend gravitate to are in the berry or red hues and for Fall, I’m all about dark lips. Arabian Knights appears to be a deep, bold red in the tube however when applied to my lips it is a gorgeous, lightly tinted berry red. As this is a lip conditioner, Arabian Knights is very moisturizing and sheerer than most lipstick products. Castor seed oil, jojoba oil, beeswax and other natural ingredients contribute to the lip conditioner’s nourishing formula.
I love the texture of Arabian Knights, because it’s light while also hydrating, reminiscent of a lip balm but also very pigmented and buildable in color. This product did not make my lips chapped or dry and I can still apply lip balm underneath for added moisture though it’s not necessary.
“Arabian Knights offers a fantasy of mystery and seduction. The deep tones of violet, and burgundy melt together forming a beautiful berry stain. An ideal shade, easily carried from day to night.”
The scent of this lip conditioner is heavenly, very minty and fresh smelling. Arabian Knights lasts on the lips for quite a few hours but the best part is that it leaves a beautiful tint on lips. I can wear this color on my lips for about 3-4 hours until the full amount of color applied fades. Arabian Knights can be built up to a gorgeous darker berry-red hue or worn sheer for a hint of color.
I love wearing Arabian Knights during the day and in the evening. It looks great as a sheer berry tint for the day and with a few extra coats of color, I can turn that sheer color into a deeper, sultry red. I so enjoy the Tinted Lip Conditioner formula and the product’s versatility that I can’t wait to try more from ILIA!
