Today I will be reviewing the Jane Iredale Lip Definer in the shade Nude. I am such a fan of Jane Iredale cosmetics and already use their lip definer in Spice (which is the exact shade of my lips). I was looking for a 90s brown Cindy Crawford lip liner look, and the lip pencil in nude is the perfect shade for that! This is the darkest shade I can go for me as I am very fair and Nude is about 2 shades darker than my natural lip colour. I would highly recommend this product as it’s not only packed with quality ingredients to nourish your lips, but it also performs incredibly well. I would recommend the shade Spice as your first purchase as I think it’s a more universal shade.
The give you that sexy 90s pout, add a lighter pink nude in the centre of the lips. I find that I have to use a very light hand with this as it’s very dark and pigmented for my skin tone.
There aren’t any official descriptions of the shades online, however I would describe Spice as a pink nude, whereas Nude is strictly a brown nude. Spice would suit a lot more skin tones than nude would, as it is a more universal shade.
You can definitely see in the swatches above that Spice has more of a pink undertone.
Description on Website:
Our Lip Pencils are soft enough to fill in your lips easily but durable enough to provide a long-lasting base to the color you layer over them.
I would say these lip pencils are more on the stiff side than creamy. They do glide on easily, however there isn’t much slip to them which I prefer as it means it will last a long time.
- Mineral pigment-based lip pencil with a soft formula that won’t tug at delicate skin.
- Made with conditioning oils and waxes.
- Soft formula lends itself to blending and being used as a lip base.
Ingredients: Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Silica, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Oil, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Copernicia Cerifera Cera, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate.

*All shades are wheat free. The shade Nude is vegan, however Spice contains carmine.
Shades: 12 shades
Packaging: I love the sleek packaging, however I would prefer a twist up lip pencil as I’m lazy when it comes to sharpening.
Scent: There’s no particular scent besides the woody scent of the lip pencil.
Longevity: Because the formula is not super creamy, I find this lasts quite a while on my lips. However, don’t expect it to last all day.
Feel/Look: Definitely more on the stiff, matte side than creamy.
Size: 0.04 oz
