Guide to Nude Lipsticks

Hello beauties,

The hunt for the perfect nude lipstick seems like an impossible task. But I’m finally onto some winners and wanted to share my tips along the way.

Cool Tone Nude Lipsticks

Cool tone lipsticks always seem lighter to me, with blue, white and grey undertones. Typically I don’t wear cool tone nudes as I find they are too light for my skin tone but sometimes cool tone nudes a perfect! MAC Fresh Brew is my go to, but other alternatives would be Dose of Colours Stone, Jeffree Star Posh Spice and Rimmel Nude Lipstick in 45.

Neutral Tone Nude Lipsticks 

Neutral tone nudes are not quite cool, but not quite warm. Jeffree Star liquid lipstick in Celebrity Skin looks quite cool but one applied and dried it goes a bit warm, with the finished look being a neutral nude.

Warm Tone Nude Lipsticks

I tend to lean towards warm tone nudes as they compliment my skin tone better. Warm tone nudes a true browns and may have orange undertones. Gerard Cosmetics lipstick in 1995 is the perfect 90s nude lipstick. Alternatively MAC Velvet Teddy (too light on my skin tone).

Pink Nude Lipsticks

You can’t go wrong with a pinky nude, they’re universally flattering. Some of my faves are Lóreal Colour Riche in 649 and MAC Brave lipstick.

Mauve Nude Lipsticks

On my darker skin tone mauve nudes are more suited than pinky nudes. Mauve nudes are a darker pink shade with a hint of purple. Some of my faves are Kat Von D Lolita (a universal flattering shade on all skin tones), MAC Twig lipstick, Colour Pop Tulle and Jeffree Star Androgyny.

Nude Lip Gloss

Nude lip glosses are a must for all gals! Its best to find one that’s neutral so you can wear it alone or on top of lipsticks like the Lanolips Nude Lipbalm*. The Lanolips one is great because its not just a lip gloss, its a lip balm and quite hydrating on the lips. Some of my other favourite nude lip glosses include; NYX Butter Gloss in Tirimusi* and Sephora lip glosses.

    1. OMG you’re so lucky! The Jeffree Star ones are such great quality, and while Colour Pop is cheaper you can’t fault them for that price. Make sure to apply some lip balm before hand xx


  1. I am so jealous you look amazing in nude lippies, I generally can’t wear nude anything on my lips without looking deathly ill. the only nude lippie I’ve been wearing on a regular basis is by besame


    1. Thank you! Personally I hate the washed out nude look on me, yet it still works.. Maybe try a nude thats pink base so it still adds a bit of colour. Also hoping you’re feeling better Lily xx


  2. You’re lucky you can wear nudes! Like Lily, I too look dead in them because I’m so fair-skinned to begin with. If I’m going to do nude lipstick, it needs to have a level of pink or rose in it. I recentlly popped a bit of the nude Lanolips on my lips to try & surprisingly, I didn’t resemble a corpse, so it’s now on my “to try” list.


  3. This post was everything! Like you I am a nude lipstick addict and it was so good to see that we share so many of the same faves (Rimmel #45, J.S Celebrity Skin + Posh Spice, G.C 1995 and Mac Velvet Teddy!) But there were also some I haven’t tried and girl you know I am already putting them on my shopping list 🙂 x


  4. I really want that Kat Von D now! I love my nudes – so great for everyday wear! And can I just say, you’re so pretty! Great shots!


      1. Unfortunately I have celebrity skin and it looks so grey on me! I can’t even wear it! It was such a disappointment for me, I was so damn excited about it and then it doesn’t suit me at all 😔 I really want to try Lolita though!


      2. That’s so disappointing! Maybe try a warmer lip liner underneath. Lolita is also completely different so probably better suited, its also universally flattering so I’m sure you’ll find a winner in Lolita!
