My Favorite Neutral Lipsticks That Aren't Nudes

by - Thursday, August 16, 2018

I love a good neutral lipstick that isn't nude, and there are several lipsticks that fall into this category of nude lipstick: the rose-colored lipsticks, the deep neutrals, the mauves, and the neutral pink-toned lipsticks.

Rose Lipsticks: 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Dusty Rose
One of my favorite rosy pinks is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in the shade Dusty Rose, which is a beautiful rosy pink that remains neutral. Of course, the formula of the liquid lipsticks makes it difficult to be comfortable without a lot of lip balm...but more on that at another time.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina & Perla
Two of the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks I have fit in the rosy category, and they are Patina, which is exactly the same color as Dusty Rose, and Perla, which is a paler rosy color. The formula is exactly just like the Anastasia liquid lipsticks too, but again, more on that another time.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry
This is my favorite color from my Revlon lip crayon collection. Sultry is a deep dusky rose, and I love these lip crayons because they make lipstick application easy, and it doesn't fade awkwardly at all, rather, it fades into a beautiful stain.

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Rose Femme
I seem to have a Milani Color Statement Lipstick for every color, and Rose Femme is no exception as it's a beautiful old rose with a bit of brown.

Deep neutrals: 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Allison
This is my favorite deep neutral color, and it's the Anastasia liquid lipstick in the shade Allison. Allison is classed as a pinky brown, but to me, it's a very deep pink.

Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream in Loved
Loved is a pinky brown which looks more of a slightly terracotta-tinged pink, and the Lip Creams are quite mousse-like in formula and feel quite comfortable.

BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Lip Color in Scandal
Scandal is my favorite bold lip color, as it's a beautiful brown-toned berry that I can occasionally wear to work or school.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sake
Sake is a purple-toned mauve, and the formula of the Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks is quite creamy, but not overly so that it feels oily.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Dopey
Dopey is a mauve colored pink, but this color mauve looks more neutral than Sake from Bite Beauty. My favorite thing about Dopey, other than being named after one of the dwarves from Snow White, is how hydrating it feels, even though it feels slightly too greasy.

Colourpop Lippie Stix in Lumiere
Lumiere is a beautiful neutral-toned mauve pink that was part of KathleenLight's first collab with Colourpop. Lumiere is part of the Matte formula of Lippie Stix, but it feels quite comfortable on the lips and is quite pigmented.

Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick in Mauve
This is the newest addition to my mauve lipstick collection, and Mauve is a slightly purple toned neutral mauve pink. The Sinner Lipsticks are all opaque in contrast to the other part of this collection, the Saint Lipsticks which are sheer, and the packaging for the Sinner Lipsticks is black, slightly shiny, but mostly matte. The lipstick's formula is slightly creamy, but not overly so.

Lipstick Queen Chess Lipstick in Bishop
Lipstick Queen has also released a collection based on chess pieces, and Bishop is a beautiful mauve pink. The Chess lipsticks are like any other traditional lipstick: Satin in finish.

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Queen B 
I wasn't planning on picking up Queen B, but during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty event back in March, they ran out of the color I really wanted, and I managed to snag the last Queen B lipstick. Queen B is a lovely slightly pale mauve pink, and the Too Faced Matte liquid lipstick is slightly drying, but not overly drying, making this one of the more comfortable lipsticks in my collection

Dose of Colors Liquid Lipstick in Stone
Stone is a lovely neutral mauve color, and the Dose of Colors liquid lipstick formula is very drying-but it stays put all day.

What are your favorite neutral lipsticks?
