Makeup Wars are usually on a Monday but due to Memorial Day being this week we moved it to the next day. This week we are sharing our takes on the best nude lipsticks. For me, nude can also means my lips but better because my lips are very mauve in tone so anything that pulls to far from that looks weird. My favorites range from warm to cool, all different textures, and include high end to drugstore. So without any further rambling, these are my take on the best nude lipsticks…
1. Kryolan High Gloss in Toffee. This is a gloss but it has the pigmentation of a liquid lipstick. It is a nice warm beige with hint of peachy pink.
2. L’Oreal Color Riche Lipcolor in Fairest Nude. Don’t let the darkness of the lipstick in the tube fool you, it is a lighter pink nude.
3. MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Freckletone. This one is surprisingly warm and orange toned for my liking. I have a neutral skin tone with pink tones on my lips but if a lipstick is pigmented enough I can sometimes boast a warmer hue. This is a Lustre formulation from MAC, which are typically sheer but I find Freckletone has more creaminess and pigmentation than the majority of others.
4. Sally Hansen Colorfast Tint + Moisture Balm in Get Mauve’n. This is a fabulous creamy lip crayon. It is a warm mauve with sheen.
5. ARDENCY INN AMERICANA Natural Lip Color in Delancey. This is an uber pigmented lip crayon. It isn’t a shade that I typically wear on its own. I usually use this with a lip gloss or just in the center of the lips for an ombre look.
6. Maybelline Color Whisper in Mocha Muse. This is a great light mauve that really is quite neutral and nude on me. It is lipstick that has a super sheer finish and is actually very balm-like in texture but it feels amazing on the lips and is a great daily go-to.
7. Rouge Bunny Rouge Colour Burst Lipstick in Whim of Mine. This is a rather deeper mauve in the tube and swatched on the arm but is definitely more of a nude/MLBB shade on my lips.
8. MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in High Tea. This one has been in my category of the best nude lipstick for the longest amount of time. I have actually owned SEVERAL tubes of this baby. It is also a Lustre formula from MAC but it is a lot more on the sheer side with beautiful shimmer.
9. Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Honey Nectar. This one is my newest acquisition. It claims to be a lip balm but it is one of the most beautiful lip colors I own. It is has all the pigmentation of a lipstick with all of the moisturization of a balm. Match made in heaven.
The swatches above and below are in the same order as the list from 1-9. The chart of lip swatches can be read like a book top-to-bottom, left-to-right. The swatches on my arm are just left to right.
Honestly, I have tons of nude lipsticks, lip glosses and lip liners… I am a nude lip junkie. I could have included a ton of other lip products but I wanted to keep this true to form and only name lipsticks. There may very well be a follow up of favorite/best nude lipglosses and lipliners too!
