Westman Atelier Lip Suede Les Nudes Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Westman Atelier Lip Suede Les Nudes is a gorgeous sheerer-leaning lip palette that is perfect for people who love customizable nude shades the provide a truly beautiful wash of color. This is a very nourishing lip palette filled with good-for-you skincare ingredients that moisturize and condition the lips. The pigments are 100% natural and range in shades from more pigmented shades such as warm rose and mulled wine to the lighter shades peony and café crème. You can easily mix the shades to customize your perfect nude shade, but the entire palette is intentionally more sheer. You can apply these shades with a brush or with your finger for sheer to light pigmentation with a beautiful sheen. As is the case with sheer to light coverage lipsticks of this sort, they lack the longevity of richly pigmented formulas that stain the lips, but I do not find the wear time lacking. This palette is very comfortable to wear and it boasts the perfect amount of cushion. In short, it feels and looks amazing on the lips, and it offers a couple of hours of wear-time on me. This cruelty-free palette is also vegan.
This palette is of you if you are a fan of cruelty-free eco-luxe cosmetics that are filled with healthy ingredients. The texture is luxurious, and the shades are lovely, but they offer a sheer to light wash of color. Therefore, if you are seeking lipsticks with intense pigmentation and color payoff, then this palette is not for you. I love nudes and sheer to light washes of color, and that is precisely why I purchased this palette, and I am very happy with it. Westman Atelier does offer a richly pigmented palette called Les Rouges (fuschia, deep brick red, tomato red, and warm dusty rose) that may appeal to you instead.

According to Westman Atelier,

Clean, customizable, everyday lip color. This intuitively easy palette contains four nude shades. Nourishing jojoba oil and volume-boosting peptides leave lips conditioned and plumped with a sheer, hydrated finish. Ultra-flattering nudes – in warm rose, peony, café crème and mulled wine – can be worn alone or custom mixed. Sheer suede texture made with 100% natural pigments in a preservative-free and petrolatum-free base.

Top to Bottom: Mulled Wine, Café Crème, Peony and Warm Rose.
I apply this palette with a lip brush or with my finger.
The compact is very heavy and well constructed. Everything about it is luxurious. The mirror is very usable and I us it each time I apply this palette.
The color story is perfect for people who love nude lips.
This is a refillable compact, and to refill you simply push a paper clip or bobby pin through the little hole on the back of the compact to push it from its magnetic base. This type of sustainability practice is something that all cosmetics companies should adopt.

  1. What a gorgeous lip palette! The case alone makes me want it!

    1. It really is a beauty, Allison! I am so happy with my purchase, and definitely will continue to buy more of her makeup. As you know, I am completely obsessed with her makeup brushes, and a I am slowly collecting some of her makeup! The compact is unbelievably well constructed and heavy! I am so glad that Gucci Westman kept her promise to make these compacts refillable because they should not end up in the landfill– plus it will make purchasing refills so much more affordable!

  2. What a great idea for a palette. I like that you won't end up with sticky lips. And you can create new color combos all the time.

    1. Exactly! I love that you can really customize your shades– plus you can mix this with other lipsticks as well. There are infinite possibilities, Marcia!

  3. I love how they show the colors in different skin tones. Is it possible to find one shade after you’re done with the set? And yes! Refillable is the way to go!

    1. I completely agree, Michelle! At this point Westman Atelier does not sell the individual shades separately. It would be amazing if they did, and hopefully they will at some point! Refillable really is the way to go, and all companies should be shifting to sustainable practices!
