If you’ve ever read my blog, you probably know I live for a nude lip. I pretty much exclusively wear a nude lip, as it goes with every makeup look. I also have a small mouth and don’t like to draw attention to that fact with a lot of bold color. Here are my favorite picks for nude* lips.
*Nude is a relative term to your particular skin tone! There is a whole world of flesh-toned shades out there; these are what work for me. I prefer a creamy, pale pinky-nude.
NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight ($26): If I had to pick one single lip product I couldn’t live without, it would be this gloss. For me, it is the perfect shade of nude with just the right amount of shine. I wear it almost every day.
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Kim K.W. ($34): One of the prettiest shades of pale nude-pink that I’ve found. It’s pricey for a lipstick, but the product lasts forever (I wear mine all the time, have had it for a year, and it’s only about halfway done).
MAC Lipstick in Blankety ($18.50): I’ve been wearing this nude shade for as long as I can remember. It is my all-time favorite shade of nude, and the formula is so creamy.
MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup ($18.50): Same formula as above, and very similar in shade. (When I find a good thing, I don’t stray too far from it!)
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Boy ($37): To me, this is like a lipstick-gloss hybrid, because it packs a lot of shine for a lipstick. There is a slight glossiness to lips after applying, which I love, because then I can skip applying gloss on top.
Beautycounter Lip Gloss in Bare Shimmer ($29): This shade definitely has more nude than pink to it, and it feels really tacky when I first apply it. But after it dries, it settles into a really flattering shade that looks just like my lips, but better, and it is comfortable and long-wearing.
