Natasha Denona Andrea & Maria I Need a Nude Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Andrea (10NB)

Natasha Denona Andrea (10NB) I Need a Nude Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, peachy coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging during application. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy without being overly slippery, and was comfortable to wear.

There was a smidgen of product in my deeper lip lines but not to the point where it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.14 oz. – $178.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to “lightweight” with a “creamy” texture and a “softly luminous finish” that feels “deeply hydrating.” There was no reference to coverage, but the promotional swatches showed opaque coverage.

The range is broken up into four undertones: Beige (suits neutral, warm, red skin tones), Neutral Beige (suits all skin tones), Neutral Pink (suits all skin tones), and Pink (suits warm and yellow skin tones). The shades also range from very light to deep so that there’s one that will “flatter each and every skin tone.”

They are pigmented with semi-opaque to opaque coverage in a single layer, and the majority of the shades applied evenly to my lips. They have a denser, more velvety formula that had some creaminess to them without feeling traditionally wet or emollient. The formula has satin-to-cream finish that wears down to a semi-matte finish within two to three hours or can be quickly blotted down if preferred.

I noticed that most shades had a bit of product that sank into my deeper lip lines with it often not being noticeable in person, just in the close-up photos, but lighter shades were more likely to be visible in person as well as in the close-up photos. They wore between four and six hours, were lightly hydrating to non-drying, and wore away evenly. The formula has a fairly strong, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Maria (30NP)

Natasha Denona Maria (30NP) I Need a Nude Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a darker peach with warm, more orange undertones but muted by some brown paired with a cream finish. The color coverage was nearly opaque in one stroke, which applied fairly evenly but was prone to settling into my lip lines. The consistency felt smooth, lightly creamy, and was comfortable to apply and to wear, but it would likely be better over a lip pencil or primer to soften the settling. It wore well for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
