I love wearing a dark lip, but on those normal, natural days, nude lipsticks are what I wear more often than not. And there are so many different types of nudes out there! So these are 5 of my top favorite nude lip products.
These nudes vary from a pinky-nude to a more brown-nude, but all of them are ones that I love and feel look flattering on my light, yellowish skintone. These are in no particular order. 🙂 I’ve also swatched them all on my arm so that you could see how different, yet nude they are.
They show up a tad different on my lips — because the pigmentation on my lips are different then that on my arm — so I’ll include swatches of my lips for tthe lipsticks, too.
1. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Sable
I received this in a 4-peice set over the holidays and, unfortunately, I just discovered that it was a limited edition color. So I’m really sorry for including a color that you can no longer get…but it’s still a beautiful color so I’ll go ahead and share it with you. 🙂
This shows up a very pinky-nude on my and is perfect for those days where I want to have some color on my lips, but nothing too bright or pinky. And this is the perfect shade for me.
2. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve recently discovered NYX’s Soft Matte Lip cream and have been loving them. I don’t think it will be long before I have the entire line!
I always have a partiality toward matte lips — I don’t know why, I just like how it looks. So the fact that these are matte, but feel much more moisturizing and soft then a typical matte lippie…I’m in love. This color in Stockholm is that perfect nude, slightly tan, color that I’m looking for when I want all the drama to be on my eyes. And if I’m not feeling it so matte, I top it off with a sheer, pinky lipgloss and it really adds something special and beautiful to the nude lip look.
3. Maybelline The Buffs Lipstick in Lust
This is the sheerest nude lipstick that I own, and I like it for when my lips are really dry and I don’t want to put any color on my lips. I use this color in Nude Embrace and while it doesn’t give the appearance of a lipstick, it still gives the shine and tint of color that I want when going out. And it’s much more moisturizing than some of the other lipsticks I own.
4. Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude Embrace
Can you tell I love matte lipsticks? This is the nude lip I reach for on the days that my lips are very moisturized and healthy and it gives me that really nude look.
And sometimes if my lips are dry I’ll just top it off with a moisturizing lipgloss and it smoothes over any dry patches.
5. Rimmel Exaggerate Full-Color Lip Liner in Natural
(Before we jump into this color, I apologize for not having a lip swatch. I somehow completely missed out on getting on. :-/)
Now this is a color I wear when I’m wanting to have a really brown-nude lipstick! I’ve only worn it that way a day or two, but one way that I do like to wear it is to give my lips an ombre kind of look using this liner to outline my lips, fill in the sides a bit, and then top it off with the Maybelline the Buffs lipstick I mentioned above. That’s a really pretty nude lip that I’ve really been enjoying recently as we’re starting to welcome summer here in Cali. 🙂
And that’s it! That was really fun to search through my lipstick collection and see what I have. Did you all find it interesting or helpful?

Really great picks!! I don't have a huge collection of nudes because I just tend to always wear darker or brighter colors. One of my favorites is Pink Plaid by MAC, it is definitely a pinky nude but it goes great with my skin tone and I just love it!! I have always wanted to try BITE beauty lipstick but for some reason I just never have. I will soon!! 🙂

I love that #3 shade. It’s so chic. I am so into nude shades, they’re easy on nearly every kind of outfit x

I really love the first one by Bite as well, but the Rimmell is also very pretty. I wish I had lips like that! So jealous.
I’ve been really into NYX products lately – I love their lip glosses!
gorgeous! i did my fave nude combo using NYX recently…so good!
These look like some neat products! I’ll have to look into the Maybelline colors you showed, as I think they would make a good addition to my lippie collection! Thanks for sharing!
Lately I’ve been in love with mascaras, and have been loving the Covergirl ones! It would be neat to see your favorite mascaras and/or eyeliners in another post!
I really love Bite Beauty. I first got into them from getting a lip gloss in my PopSugar box. It’s been my favorite for months now! I love this review for nude shades, perhaps I need to go beauty shopping soon!
I’ve been looking for a new nude lipstick, I think I’ll checkout the NYX one! Great list, btw!
i need some nude lipsticks
