Deborah Lippmann’s Careless Whisper ($17 for 0.50 fl oz/15 ml) is a sparkling champagne nude. It’s a sheerish sparkle that is easy to apply but requires three coats for full coverage. It’s not as sheer as Diamonds and Pearls (which I don’t own but have tested at Nordstrom). Careless Whisper has a lovely sheen that comes from the multi-colored sparkles suspended in a beige base. It has an iridescent sheen but looks very natural on the hands.
Comparisons to a few other nudes: Dolce & Gabbana Nude, Chanel Lily Beige (discontinued), Dior Beige Lotus, Deborah Lippmann Naked and Butter London All Hail McQueen.
Overall love. It’s a beautiful natural nude that has a lovely sheen.
