My Favorite Nude Lipsticks

by - Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Nude lipsticks are forever and always a love of mine. They are quite versatile, meaning you can wear them on any occasion, and nobody will notice half your lipstick is gone when you've eaten something. There are a lot of categories of nude lipsticks, and I'll be breaking down my favorite nude lipsticks.

Pink Nudes: 
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk
This is the one high-end lipstick that had everyone talking last year. Charlotte Tilbury managed to bring her most popular Lip Cheat color into a lipstick, and of course, everyone bought into it. The Matte Revolution lipstick is one of the most comfortable lipsticks I've ever worn, and the color matches the Lip Cheat-a beautiful, opaque pink nude.

Milani Color Statement Lipstick
There are three colors of nude pink that I love in this range: Naturally Chic, a beautiful pink nude, Nude Creme, a pale pink nude, and Dolce Caramelo, a slightly shimmery, slightly brown-toned pink nude. The Color Statement Lipsticks are a bit creamy, a bit opaque and are affordable, and once or twice a year go on sale at CVS for half price.

Ulta Nude Lipstick in Pink Chocolate
The Ulta Nude Lipsticks have been discontinued already in place of some other new items. One of the most underrated brands at Ulta is their own in-house brand, and their lipsticks are affordable and cruelty-free. Pink Chocolate is a pinky nude that almost matches my own lip color and I am quite disappointed that they discontinued the Nude Lipstick line.

Fresh Sugar Lip Balm in Petal
I remember a time when these were insanely popular as they were hydrating but packed a punch of color. I still love the Fresh Sugar Lip Balms, and Petal is a beautiful neutral pink nude which goes well with or without makeup.

True Nudes:
Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream
There are three lipsticks that are true nudes: not too pink, not too brown and not too pale that it looks like you've slapped some concealer on your lips. Those colors are Adorable, a slightly pink-toned beige, Honey, a slightly deeper pink-toned beige, and Sweetie, which is slightly more pink than Adorable and Honey. The Milani Amore Mattes are comfortable, and have a mousse-like formula, making them less drying than other liquid lipsticks.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Caramelo, Baci
The Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are drying, but that is because they are more of a liquid formula and designed to stay on your lips all day. Baci is a slightly greige-toned nude pink, and Caramelo is a nude brown with the slightest hint of pink.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Pure Hollywood
The ABH Liquid lipsticks have the same formula as the Stila Stay All Day liquid lipsticks, albeit a bit thicker. The shade Pure Hollywood is a beautiful, slightly-pink toned nude brown, which is perfect as it doesn't look like concealer lips at all.

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Honey
Honey is a pink-brown nude, but appears more brown on the lips. The formula of the Balm Stains is slightly oily when it comes to more usage, but it fades away nicely into a stain instead of fading away completely.

Brown-Toned Nudes
Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo in Achiever
The Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo is the second-most expensive lipstick in my collection, but the heftiness and luxurious feel of the packaging make it feel much more expensive than it really is. Achiever is a slightly mauve-colored nude brown which feels quite comfortable and creamy on the lips.

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Teddy Bare
Another Milani Color Statement Lipstick has made its way to my favorite nude lipsticks. Teddy Bare is a slightly deepened brown-toned nude, but not so much that it makes it look like I've eaten a bag of chocolates without wiping my mouth.

BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Lip Color in Icon
The BareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Lip Colors are comfortable, despite being a thicker liquid formula because it doesn't try down completely. The shade Icon is a beautiful brown-toned nude which I should really get more use out of.

Peach-Toned nudes
Charlotte Tilbury KISSING Lipstick in Bitch Perfect
Bitch Perfect is a slightly brown-toned peach nude lipstick, which slightly makes it look like I have concealer lips, but from a distance, it's not noticeable at all. The formula of the KISSING Lipsticks is satin in finish, so it's slightly shiny.
