I love wearing a dark lip, but on those normal, natural days, nude lipsticks are what I wear more often than not. And there are so many different types of nudes out there! So these are 5 of my top favorite nude lip products.
These nudes vary from a pinky-nude to a more brown-nude, but all of them are ones that I love and feel look flattering on my light, yellowish skintone. These are in no particular order. 🙂 I’ve also swatched them all on my arm so that you could see how different, yet nude they are.
1. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Sable
I received this in a 4-peice set over the holidays and, unfortunately, I just discovered that it was a limited edition color. So I’m really sorry for including a color that you can no longer get…but it’s still a beautiful color so I’ll go ahead and share it with you. 🙂
2. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve recently discovered NYX’s Soft Matte Lip cream and have been loving them. I don’t think it will be long before I have the entire line!
I always have a partiality toward matte lips — I don’t know why, I just like how it looks. So the fact that these are matte, but feel much more moisturizing and soft then a typical matte lippie…I’m in love. This color in Stockholm is that perfect nude, slightly tan, color that I’m looking for when I want all the drama to be on my eyes. And if I’m not feeling it so matte, I top it off with a sheer, pinky lipgloss and it really adds something special and beautiful to the nude lip look.
3. Maybelline The Buffs Lipstick in Lust
This is the sheerest nude lipstick that I own, and I like it for when my lips are really dry and I don’t want to put any color on my lips. I use this color in Nude Embrace and while it doesn’t give the appearance of a lipstick, it still gives the shine and tint of color that I want when going out. And it’s much more moisturizing than some of the other lipsticks I own.
4. Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude Embrace
Can you tell I love matte lipsticks? This is the nude lip I reach for on the days that my lips are very moisturized and healthy and it gives me that really nude look.
5. Rimmel Exaggerate Full-Color Lip Liner in Natural
(Before we jump into this color, I apologize for not having a lip swatch. I somehow completely missed out on getting on. :-/)
Now this is a color I wear when I’m wanting to have a really brown-nude lipstick! I’ve only worn it that way a day or two, but one way that I do like to wear it is to give my lips an ombre kind of look using this liner to outline my lips, fill in the sides a bit, and then top it off with the Maybelline the Buffs lipstick I mentioned above. That’s a really pretty nude lip that I’ve really been enjoying recently as we’re starting to welcome summer here in Cali. 🙂
