Their beauty section stocks everything from cult favorites like Bobbi Brown’s Hot Nudes Eye Palette, Butter London and Tom Ford nail lacquers, Charlotte Tilbury mini lipsticks, and many more. The site is a shopping aggregator, not an e-commerce site, so each item links back to it’s own distributer. You’ll end up buying from the Sephora or department store website the same way you would normally – just having found the product a whole lot easier.
“Not long ago, ‘nude’ meant ‘matches white skin,'” founder Steve Moscetti told Refinery29 about the impetus for the game-changing site, “Because not everyone’s ‘nude’ is the same, people with skin of any other color were implicitly unable to participate in the trend.”
He agrees that the industry is changing and becoming more inclusive: “Now, all the big brands are offering nude shoe collections, makeup and nail polishes, and lingerie.” Unfortunately, with such varied industry terms for shades like “tan, cream, cognac, almond, pink, rose, coral”, according to Moscatti, there’s a “gap between market demand and ease of shopping”. That’s where Nudevolution comes in.
The site is still working on fine-tuning their own color spectrum. Right now, only the Shoes and Accessories categories can be sorted by color, with two buttons named “nude” and “dark nude.” Moscatti understands that customers will want more information than that, and especially when shopping for something to match your own skin tone, product photos can sometimes be deceiving. The good news is, the team is coloring using every crayon in the box.
