Sophie Martin Nudes



I finally received my order of lipsticks from Sophie Martin after a long time. I ordered mostly nude lipsticks, something you can use at work or school or even doing errands, something that doesn't scream "Look at Me", just a sweet/dainty girly look.


I got Velvet Nude, Caramel Sugar and Mango Peach.  These are inexpensive at 79 pesos each, ordered through a Sophie Martin dealer. 

Let's start with Velvet Nude.  I did a review of this before, but for swatch comparison, I will still include it here.



Velvet nude is a light brown-reddish shade.

Next is Caramel Sugar -


From its name, it sounds sweet right?



Caramel sugar is pale pink in color, and is the lightest amongst the three nudes.

Lastly, Mango Peach -




Mango Peach is peachy-corally in color.


All three, side by side.  I hope you can see the different shades, but I guess they all look the same in this lighting, sorry.  From L to R - Velvet Nude, Caramel Sugar, Mango Peach.


No flash, again L to R Velvet Nude, Caramel Sugar and Mango Peach



With flash Velvet Nude has hints of red, Caramel Sugar is the lightest and pinky while Mango Peach is corally.

THE GOOD:
- inexpensive at 79 pesos each, good for those who are on a budget
- safe for work/school colors, great for everyday wear
- stays on for 3 hours at most
- will flatter most skin tones

THE BAD:
- there is this cloying chocolatey smell that annoys me
- you have to order from a dealer
- it settles in the fine lines of the lips so you have to moisturize and scrub lips first
- drying
- you have to swipe at least 3 times for the color to show

If I were to pick out of all the three shades, I like Mango Peach the most because it brightens the face.  I say this coral shade is perfect for summer, BUT again I hate the scent.  I feel dizzy with it, which is kind of off putting.  The shades are great because it can flatter most skin tones and good for those who are starting out with make ups, that is if you don't mind the scent.  Will I buy again?  Sorry, but no.

I had been using the mango peach, and I really liked it, because it really looks nice on me..I like it's smell ..

Nathalie said...

They're really nice colors, I could see myself using those. Would love to get Caramel Sugar or Mango Peach, but I still have several tubes of lipstick here. Too bad, the chocolate-y smell would have been a bonus for me too. :D

Alina, i will visit your blog in a bit :)

Sis Cristine, yes mango peach is really nice, suits me real well, but the scent gets into my sensitive nose.

Kittykat Miyaw said...

Nathalie, all three shades are nice. The scent might be tolerable to some, but for me I find it cloying lang talaga.

Kittykat Miyaw said...

Angel, do try it out as the shade is really nice, lakas maka "fresh" look.

Kristine Diomampo said...

I love the shades! Too bad, I'm not a lipstick girl. For some reason, I don't like putting anything on my lips, not even lip balm. If the lip balm tastes good/fruity, I end up licking them off my lips. I'm also easily put off by the smell so I'm still trying to find a good brand that I can tolerate and doesn't taste nasty.

Followed you back :)

Those are lovely shades. If my lips aren't pale, nude lipsticks will always be in my stash.

I love lipsticks and my faves are nudes with a pink undertone. These colours are so pretty!

Too bad we don't have a Sophie Martin dealer around here, I'd love to try because I think I'd look lighter with those shades.

Rae A. said...

Where did you buy these? I've been looking for someone who sells them.

Jean Quiambao said...

Thanks for the review sis! The price is attention-grabbing but I don't like weird-smelling lipsticks too...

I've never heard of this brand. The Caramel Sugar shade looks great, but if the scent of these lipsticks is a bit disgusting, I think I won't try them out.

Nice colors, though I feel they are very thinly pigmented almost like tinted lip balms. But they are really cheap, so fun to have for the summer. Thanks for sharing :-)

Wow 79 pesos is cheap! I am looking for lipsticks as well but I was hoping to find one that would last for the whole day (aka MAC but probably cheaper).

The shades are nice but I'm not quite sure if it fits me. Huhu

Nice shades sis but how bout their staying power? :) Do they last?

Teri Yellow said...

Their lipstick is not that bad. The one I bought before feels like it change its color. I like the way you swatch it. ^_^ They're almost the same, true enough.
