Nude lips are a staple beauty look since they pair well with a lot of other looks. You can go for an all-over light look with a neutral eye and nude lip, or you can draw the attention to a bold smoky eye and leave the lips nude as contrast. Whichever way you rock it, a nude lipstick is a classic choice.
I recently rounded up my favourite berry lipsticks for Fall, which you can check out here, and it was such a hit that I decided to pull out my best nude lipsticks too. I personally like to pair a nude lipstick with a super dramatic and dark eye look, so I have quite a few favourites that you might like to check out. See my perfect nude lipstick picks (and pics) below!
Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Exposed: This is a lovely lip crayon from Tarte that is a gorgeous nude in a matte formula. Nude lips look great in matte finishes, and this one is definitely a high-quality choice. It applies fairly smoothly and lasts for a while, and even though it’s matte it doesn’t feel dry or heavy.
Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick in 03: If you’ve been reading The Beauty Badger for longer than a week you’ve probably seen me raving about this lipstick line. I’m so obsessed with these Kate Moss lippies and have them in all kinds of shades, both matte and cream finish. This one is a great nude shade that isn’t too dark or too light. It’s pretty close to my natural lip colour and it goes well with my skin tone, so this is the one I use most frequently. Check out my post on the rest of these lipsticks here.
L’Oreal Paris Nude Couture Collection in 610 Eva’s Nude: Eva’s Nude is inspired by the beautiful L’Oreal Paris spokeswoman Eva Longoria (shout-out to all the Desperate Housewives fans reading this!) and is part of the L’Oreal Paris Nude Couture Collection. This collection featured matching nude lipsticks and nail polishes each of the spokeswomen, including Eva, Doutzen Kroes, and Jennifer Lopez. Eva’s Nude is my personal favourite of the lipsticks but there are a variety of shades to match different skin tones. You can even check out the matching nail polishes in my review here.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 025 Sky Line Pink: Although this says pink in the name I would consider it a very light nude. It’s a pearl finish so there’s some shimmer to it, and it’s the lightest of my picks, but I like ti because it’s different. Instead of the normal nude lip this one offers a bit of a twist with a lighter look and some added sparkle to it.
Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in 700 Nude Delight: This moisturizing lipstick is soft, shiny, and smells great. It has a fresh scent that i quite enjoy, and feels super light and creamy to apply. This lipstick really does feel hydrating and it’s a great choice for an affordable product that looks and feels like it should be much more expensive. Check out all the Moisture Renew shades here.
Nude lipsticks come in a wide variety of shades because everyone has a different ‘nude’ colour. You can find one to match yours perfectly or go for something a little lighter or darker, depending on your preferences. Or you can try them all like I do and have endless options for a classic nude lip!
Pro Tip: A perfect partner for a nude lip is a serious smokey eye, so grab your best black eyeliner and smudge away for a sexy, smoldering stare to compliment your classic lipstick!
