Let’s talk nudes, lipsticks of course! Every woman needs to have at least one amazing nude lipstick in her collection, or eleven if you’re a makeup hoarder like me. Nude Lipsticks pair perfectly with an intense smokey eye, they perfectly compliment the eyes without overpowering them or drawing too much attention. I love nude lipsticks for everyday wear as well. They’re perfect for wearing to work or on a first date, they give you that subtle sexy look without looking like you’re trying too hard or screaming for attention. Now don’t get me wrong, I love intense bold lips too but we’ll get to those another time. Just make sure to pick a nude lipstick that compliments your skintone, too light and you may start looking like a character from The Walking Dead!
If you want a little guidance check out this article from Byrdie on how to pick the best nude lipstick for your skintone. Don’t feel like you have to stick to what someone else says, if you like it on yourself then go for it! Keep on reading to see my collection of nude lipsticks!
- Top to Bottom: Silk Lace, Maca Nude, Nude, Marrakesh, Oh My Guave, Allure, Sex Tape, Nude Brown, Craving, Sun & Surf, Sedona Sands
Palma Beauty “Silk Lace” – This is described as a nude lipstick with cool undertones, i’d say it almost has some yellow tones to it. This nude is a little harder for me to wear than some of the others in my collection, I like to line my lips first with a more pinky nude liner or top it with a gloss to give it some more color. I found these lipsticks on Etsy and they are super affordable, very pigmented and actually matte, which is hard to find in green beauty. These are cruelty free, vegan, and organic. I’ll do a full review on all my shades soon!
- Left: “Silk Lace” alone Right: lined my lips with Jane Iredale Lip Liner in Spice first
Palma Beauty “Sex Tape” – This is described as a medium-pinky nude with cool undertones. I really love this shade, it’s the perfect balance between pink and nude for me. Check them out here
Dusty Girls “Maca Nude” – This is described as a neutral shade for a chic and barely there finish. That’s a great description for this shade, it starts off more sheer but can be built up for more pigmentation. This is the only other real neutral nude shade I have beside the Palma Beauty one in Silk Lace, the other ones are all pinky nudes. You can check this one out here and you can also check out my review of some of their other products here 🙂
Mineral Fusion “Nude” – This is described as a nude-mauve. This is definitely more of a satin-glossy finish and has a more sheer application. You can find this brand at your local Whole Foods or other natural food stores, or you can check it out here
Au Naturale Cosmetics “Marrakesh” – This is described as a warm matte pink. This is a truly matte formula, hallelujah! This is still moisturizing on the lips and doesn’t feel drying at all. Check it out here
Red Apple Lipstick “Oh My Guava” – This is described as a nude-pink. This is currently sold out at the moment, for good reason! So go ahead and sign up for the waitlist. This has a satin finish and is super moisturizing but long lasting! I don’t know why I didn’t try these lipsticks sooner, I need them all I think. Check it out here
Nu Evolution Cosmetics “Allure” – This is just a perfect warm/pinky nude shade with a satin finish. If you follow my Instagram page you’ve seen me raving about this one. You can check it out here
- Use code JH15 on Aurora Beauty to save money, although it is backordered at the moment (I don’t get any money from you guys using my code just FYI)
Lorem Cosmetics “Nude Brown” – This is a mauvey/brown nude shade, with a matte finish. So I have to be honest the smell of this lipstick is not my favorite at all, it reminds me of lipsticks my grandma used to wear. It’s also slightly tough to apply because the formula is pretty hard, but this is completely matte and wears a long time which is nice. Check them out here
Jane Iredale Lip Fixation “Craving” – This is described as a light Salmon shade. I’m obsessed with this color and I definitely want to pick up more shades. These are lip stains that apply a thin layer of pigmentation to the lips, and last for hours. I tried wiping this off my arm and I was rubbing it with lotion and it wasn’t budging! These don’t feel too dry on your lips, so if you’re looking for a long wearing alternative to the conventional liquid lipsticks then try these. This has a clear gloss that you can apply on top if you don’t want a matte finish. Check them out here
Glory Boon Cheek & Lip Tint “Sun and Surf” – This is a sheer neutral nude/brown shade. These are great if you just want minimal color and something super moisturzing. I haven’t tried this on my cheeks yet but It would give you a nice dewy glow I’m sure! Check them out here
- I’m obsessed with their highlighter in “Sol” here and the Passport to Paradise lip glosses here and the liquid lipsticks in Anyla and Mia here
Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon “Sedona Sands” – Once again this is a really pretty pinky nude shade, am I repeating myself? I love the Crayon form as its super easy to apply and this gives a nice demi-matte finish. Burt’s Bees is a subsidiary of Clorox so if you have issues with that, then you may want to stay away from this brand. But if not, check them out here or at your local target or health food store.
Fitglow Beauty “Buck” – This is described as a natural nude shade. Unfortunately I couldn’t swatch this one next to the others because I sadly lost it! But “Buck” was definitely one of my OG favs. Defintely check out their lipsticks if you haven’t already, they have organic ingredients and have an amazing formulation! You can buy them at Aurora Beauty as well and use my same code I listed above to save JH15
Hopefully you guys found some Nudes you need in your life! Which ones are your favorites? I’d love to hear from you guys 🙂
