BareMinerals’ buxom New Orleans

I don't hate this color…but it isn't the best one on me. True nudes, or cooler nudes, like Sydney, look better with my coloring. If you have truly neutral or warm coloring, though, this will probably work fairly well as a not-quite-nude shade. I do like it with its complement, Buxom Tara, though! (The cool sparkles in Tara help make this color look more tan, less orange on me.)

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips.

If you're looking for something warmer, try Athens (which I swatched at Sephora, and rejected as being ‘not the shade for me.') Nantucket is a good softer warm nude shade that works if you liked Milan, but are looking for something with perhaps a tiny bit less brown.
