I have found such a lovely nude lipstick! It has warm(ish) undertone, hydrates my lips, has pleasant rosy smell, nice packaging and is certified organic. What is not to love? Ok, ok, price could be lower, but it´s not that bad. This shade is called Dahlia and it is from Sheerlips collection by Australian green beauty brand called Zuii. They use flowers to make their gorgeous makeup line <3 These lipsticks are lightweight, hydrating and offering buildable coverage.
I had an opportunity to try/swatch different shades of lipstick from this Sheerlips collection, while i was on the workshop. And i have to say that they have different opacity, it really depends on the shade. My Dahlia is somewhere in the middle – not too sheer, but really not opaque. It has buildable coverage, which i like.
What i really like about this lipstick is that i don´t need lipliner. Although maybe it would look more defined and just more put together with it. I love that i really don´t feel the need to use lipbalm under this lipstick 🙂 It feels so lovely on the lips, like i was putting on lipbalm. But be careful, it has nasty habit of making flaky lips more visible (so don´t forget to exfoliate). Which was and issue for me in colder months, when my lips were more dry, now is no problemo 🙂

Dahlia by Zuii is very pretty nude shade, it is not as pink as it looks on the pictures. It looks more accurate on my lips at the pictures bellow. It has amazing rosy scent, that is not too strong, so it is not bothering me, i like it! I also like the facts that you can see the color of the lipstick right on the cap, so no guessing needed, even if you have more than one shade.
Here is me wearing Dahlia! 🙂
Zuii Sheerlips lipstick costs around 24,90 €/2g.
