I have Hooligan and Two Timer. I absolutely adore Hooligan. I have fair skin with pink undertones and this is a really pretty shade that adds a nice pop to my lips without standing out too much. I find Two Timer looks a lot pinker on my lips and I save that for daytime/outdoor activities. The Hooligan is a great, daily color that matches practically everything. You can layer a gloss over it to give it a little different shade.
Nudist would work well as a base. I use it as my everyday go to now because I love how it feels. I am fair skinned and it looks very natural.

Hooligan is a great color! If I could describe it and the Sephora MA helped me out on this too...its like a pinky-brown color. It looks even better if you add a gloss to it. I find this color to be pretty neutral. Looks gorgeous with bold eyes look.
Nudist would make a good base but way too light as a lipstick.

Hooligan is/might be a tad dark on lighter skin girls, I think. It's a darker mauve than I've usually seen. On my medium latina skin (nc35, mufe pro finish 123) it works perfectly! A fave of mine is Two-Timer, a dusty rose color that is the perfect office lipstick for me. They're very moisturizing and lasted above the five hour mark for me, and left a stain effect past that (I prep and exfoliate and wear a lip primer, so that might need to be taken to account). They're very creamy so I suggest not layering it on, as it might bunch up on the lines of the lips, plus they're pretty darn pigmented so one or two swipes should do! The other nude shade, that one did not work very well on me, it was so pale and made me look washed out. I could see it work on lighter skinned girls with a bit more pink on their skin than my own tan/yellow.

I have this in nudist; but I was looking for a nude shade. I think it looks good on it's own but I'm sure it would work as a base. I usually use lip balm and this certainly feels like one. I wouldn't do more than one coat regardless of how you use it though, with one coat it looks like a pinky nude (on me) but not washed out - I tried to reapply it once when I thought it was completely off and looked like I had fainted. I like buxom's colors but usually don't believe the hype about lip plumping, but the finish isn't matte so I can see how it makes lips look fuller.
Both are beautiful opaque colors that are true to what's pictured :).
