If you know me, there are a couple of things you can count on: I will never say no to Qdoba, and I will always be in a nude lip. I am forever on the hunt for the perfect nude lip. In fact, I would go as far as to call myself a connoisseur of nude lips. So, I have rounded up some of my favorites (both drug store and high end) for you. There are pinky nudes, peachy nudes, neutral nudes, matte finishes, and glossy ones. By the end of this post you are guaranteed to have found your new fabulous everyday lip color- trust me on this one.
From left to right we have:
I started wearing this shade a couple of weeks ago, and can’t put it down! It is an extremely long wearing, rich, cool toned pinky nude with a matte (but not drying) finish. Although it dries matte, there is still a hint of sheen to it, which looks beautiful on the lips.
This is an all time fave formula for me. It lasts all day while hydrating and almost giving your lips a plumping effect. It is the darkest and mauve-iest nude in the roundup, so I recommend it for you ladies with a deeper skin tone.
If you like the smell or taste of peaches, don’t walk, RUN to buy this. It is incredibly hydrating and comfortable on the lips. Although it is not long wearing, the comfort factor makes it worth it for me. This is on the more neutral/peachy brown side of nudes and has a gorgeous glossy finish. (This lip gloss is so hydrating and delicious that I wear it to work out…lounge around the house….sleep…..)
This is my holy grail of traditional lipsticks. You will never catch me without this in my purse. I will repurchase this shade of lipstick until it is discontinued and then I will personally email Charlotte Tilbury daily until they bring it back. It is the PERFECT light pinky/peach nude (it was based off Kim Kardashian West so…. duh). The formula of this is stunning. It is technically a “matte” but it has a sheen that lasts for hours. It feels amazing on the lips, and somehow manages to give a sort of plumping effect.
5. KKW by Kylie Cosmetics Creme Liquid Lipstick in “Kimberly”
I was so excited when this collaboration came out. I have never been a huge fan of Kylie Cosmetics, but I am however a huge fan of a nude lip, and NO ONE does a nude lip like Kim K. The kit came with 4 colors, but unfortunately, this is the only one I liked. Its a true neutral nude with a creme finish. Although it does not last very long on the lips, it is comfortable and hydrating. Not to mention, the color is perfect for those of you looking for that Kim K signature lip.
This is my summertime STAPLE. If you catch me at the pool- I am wearing this. The color is gorgeous and I get so many questions whenever I wear this lip. The formula is unlike anything else I have tried before. It truly is a gel/balm. It is super hydrating and almost sticky (in a GOOD way). The stickiness keeps the balm bonded to your lips while being waterproof, sweat proof, and generally just summer proof. It feels like wearing a heavy duty lip balm. The color is a neutral, your-lips-but-better nude, with a hint of sheen and sparkle. It looks natural and stays on for hours.
When I first bought this product, I wore it every day for at least a month straight. I was OBSESSED with the cooler toned pinky nude color and creme finish. It doesn’t stay very long on your lips, but the color is so pretty I didn’t even care. It feels super comfy on the lips, and fades naturally instead of flaking or gathering in the corners.
If you haven’t found a nude lip that you’re dying to try after this post…. check back next month, I am sure I will have 10 new ones (jk…………….kinda).
