To find an ideal nude lipstick is not as easy as it might sound. It’s very individual. It’s like finding your perfect foundation shade. One person’s nude lipstick could be another person’s brown or pale ghostly pink, so it can be a bit tricky to find the right one for you.

But with a bit of trial and error, once you find the right shade that works beautifully with your skin tone (neither too colorful or washed out), a nude lip can look fantastic. I went through plenty of hits and misses with nude lipstick and here is a range of different great nudes that I found to be complimenting different skin tones.

 

 

#1. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lip by Kate Nude Collection in 40

It’s rather pale pink-nude with a creamy texture and it will work so well for those of us who have fair skin. It has a powdery matte finish yet it’s not at all drying.

#2. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, Nude Attitude

This has been my go to lipstick for years (I have light to medium skin tone). It’s a peachy nude with a creamy, rather matte texture.

#3. Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipstick, Nude Thrill

If you want a matte lipstick that does not feel drying, then check Maybelline Color Sensational line: the texture and finish are always amazing and when I look for a great dupe for any high-end lipstick, most likely I will find it among Color Sensational line. This particular nade is more on a taupey side, it does not have any peach undertone.

#4. Maybelline New York Color Sensational The Buffs Lip Color, Nude Lust

This one of those shades that can go with any makeup, any look: it’s not to peach, it’s not to pink.It’s that perfect nude for light to medium skin tones.

#5. Milani Color Statement Lipstick, Matte Naked

It’s a gorgeous muted rosy nude tone which might be a perfect choice for those of us with light to medium skin tones. It’s one of those lipsticks that suits every makeup look I’m going for.

#6. L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour, Fairest Nude

Silky texture, glides on beautifully and stays on well. The shade would be best for those from light to medium skin tones.

#7. e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipstick In The Nude

The velvety, satin texture glides on lips nicely and has slight luminous shine. The shade is on a peachy side and it would look especially beautifully on medium skin tones.

#8. e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipstick 82648 In The Nude

The velvety, satin texture glides on lips nicely and has slight luminous shine. The shade is on a peachy side and it would look especially beautifully on medium skin tones.
