Welcome to Unfiltered, where we give our honest, no-B.S. reviews of the most buzzed-about beauty products, brands, and services on the market right now.
Over the last few years, the beauty industry has put a massive spotlight on inclusivity. But, so far, the focus has been on foundations. While brands are coming out with shade expansions and launching brand-new foundation lines with 50+ shades, there’s still room for improvement in other cosmetic categories — like lipstick.
Most lipstick collections only have a handful of nude shades, making it difficult for many women to find their perfect match. That’s why YouTuber Jaclyn Hill decided to create her own range of lipsticks, and all 20 shades are nude. "I just wanted to create a line where when you line them up, yeah they all look similar but they’re all so different," says Hill in her announcement video. "They’re all made for a certain skin tone."
With all the excitement around this launch — shades are already selling out on the Jaclyn Cosmetics site — we wanted to put these lipsticks to test. So, we asked a few Refinery29 staffers to try the product. Read their opinions, ahead.
