Nudus Lipstick in Dirty Diana and Naked

Dirty Diana Naked Nudus Lipstick Review

I am sure you all know by now how much I like the Nudus lipstick formula. The three shades that I have tried have been consistently great in terms of pigmentation, staying power, and emollient properties. While it is difficult these days to catch me wearing something other than 27 Kisses on my lips, I have been occasionally switching to Dirty Diana* or Naked*.

Nudus Dirty Diana

Dirty Diana* is a very pigmented, medium, berry red. I usually opt for more warm/coral reds, but Dirty Diana is very flattering. It is very emollient and does not cause any dryness and discomfort to my lips, however, the finish is almost matte. In the image above I am wearing a tiny amount of lip balm which makes it look a bit shinier than it really is (I swatched several lipsticks back to back and needed lip balm in between). I do not think that wearing a balm underneath is necessary, except if your lips are dry. It does not slip off the lips and has good staying power. Unless I drink/eat I did not need to touch up until several hours from the initial application. It can easily be applied straight from the tube or if you prefer a more polished look you may use a lip brush. I applied it straight on my lips and I corrected my lip shape with a lip pencil, the Jane Iredale lip pencil in Crimson.

In case you missed it, I swatched Nudus Dirty Diana next to Ilia Beauty in Femme Fatale in this post (click here). I did that because the two lipsticks are very similar in color. However, on the lips, Dirty Diana shows up as a more berry, red while Femme Fatale is warmer.

Naked* is a brownish pinky-nude with the slightest, almost undetectable golden shimmer (it didn’t even shop up in the swatch above). I have swatched every single nude lip color I own and did not find anything similar. However, when I wear Naked I use the Jane Iredale Lip Pencil in Spice to define my lip shape, which goes really well with it. Naked is the lipstick that I would recommend if you are someone that dabs a little foundation on your lips to tone them down in color because it neutralizes the lip color without being too pale. It is perfect when paired with a more dramatic eye look like a smokey eye or a graphic liner. It can also be used as a base for other colors as it creates a more neutral base. It is completely matte yet does not dehydrate my lips.

Can’t get enough of these Nudus lipsticks! Have you tried any yet? If so, which one is your favorite? Which color(s) would you like to see swatches of next?

    Both are gorgeous, but seeing “Naked” on you makes me realize I just found my perfect nude shade! Going to purchase asap! :-D xx

  • Wow Dirty Diana is a lot more of a berry than I pictured. Simply stunning! I have to give Nudus a try.

  • Gosh, Dirty Diana is such a perfect red! Looks stunning on you :)

  • I keep a little notepad of new beauty products I want to try, and “Dirty Diana” just got added to the list. LOVE how punchy it is, and I like how the berry tones look with the deep red.

    Do you put concealer on your lips before lipstick, or do something to create more of a “blank canvas” before applying? I ask because I have naturally dark lips (a purplish pink) and I could never put on a nude color and have it actually look nude. Any tips would be great :)

  • Naked is my everything!! It’s so gorgeous!! But both look so great on you!

  • Kate
