It is #BEAUTYMONDAY so HOLLAH! It is NO secret that I love love love beauty monday. I get so excited to come up with new items for all of you to enjoy and learn from because makeup is seriously one of my biggest passions. One of the biggest trends of the last year or so has been perfecting the nude lip. Apparently, it isn’t enough to just go bare with your lips, we must now get our hands on the perfect shade of your-lips-but-better. I’m not even mad. Let’s dive into the best of nude lipsticks take one:
These are The Best of Nude Lipsticks I am going to be reviewing for you today:
I looooove this color. It is more of a cool toned white nude than anything else. Super pigmented, and dries down incredibly matte. It is easy to apply and unless you are eating something super greasy, it isn’t going anywhere all day long.
I love everything Tarte. Ya’ll already know. I don’t think I need to explain why this is so amazing but in case you are NEW to the show, here’s the deal. Tarte’s matte lip creams are the BOMB. This one was a limited edition birthday gift, but I think the one I linked is a super close match. It stays on all day, doesn’t dry out my lips and is perfectly kissable. This shade is a cool-toned matte.
I’ve been straying away from the mattes lately because it is more practical for me to have something that will fade off while I’m at work during the day. I have been reaching for this gloss time and time again lately. It is a warm-toned peachy nude that flatters my super pale skin really well. 10/10. Plus I LOVE the wand.
This gloss was bought on a whim, but I’m glad I caved. This color is VERY cool-toned and would look great if I had a little bit of a tan. The gloss fades nicely for the most part but does feather if not set with a pencil first. I love the pigmentation of it.
This one is kind of a hit or miss, but I felt I should mention it because the nude color is amazing. It WILL dry out your lips while wearing it. I’m talking Sahara desert. If you are someone who doesn’t mind that, go for it! This is definitely a white-based, cool-toned nude that would match a lighter skin tone really well!
This is the first nude lipstick I bought for a looooong time a few months ago. I always tried to stay away from nudes because I was on a BIG bold lipstick kick. However: it is matte, it stays MOSTLY all day and it has a rosy undertone. Beware however, the longer it stays on your lips without reapplication, the “pinker” the lipstick turns. I always reapply a few times through out the day to keep the “nude” look.
Ya’ll know I love the Sephora cream lip stains. I was graciously gifted the entire 40 lipstick set in January and have been going through and wearing all my favorites. These two have stolen my heart from the nude selection. They are both fairly cool-toned. Pink Tea is a little rosier than Nude Blush, but both are ultra flattering. (ALSO not drying FYI)
THIS. I cannot BELIEVE I left this off my original list. I am literally kicking myself. This is a cream lipstick that comes in a stick, not a tube. It is GORGEOUS. By far one of my favorite nudes to wear. It fades beautifully, it looks amazing on just about every skin tone and it doesn’t feather. AKA this is the perfect nude and I forgot about it until like 20 minutes ago as I was going through my lipstick drawer. #classictay
Okay, okay. So there you have it! The Best of Nude Lipsticks! I love nude lipsticks, and am really glad pigmented glosses are starting to make their comeback. While the super matte lip creams are still hot (and I love them), it is nice to wear something that will fade during the day instead of crumbling off.
Do you have a GO-TO nude lipstick not on this list that I need to try ASAP? Let me know in the comments below!
