The Go To Nude Lipsticks + Gloss

Crayon shaped lipsticks are so easy and non fussy that it’s no surprise NARS Bahama, a velvet matte brownish nude, lives at the bottom of my purse. It’s effortless, and the perfect everyday, comfortable matte lip shade.

I did a whole post on my go to nude liquid lipsticks a while back, but these shades are the ones I’m constantly reaching for, and my top 3 in the nude liquid lip category since they’re comfortable and not drying. I’ve fallen back in love with Kat Von D Bow n Arrow, described as a fawn nude, after neglecting it for a couple months. Jouer Noisette is my go to when I want a brownier nude on the lips, and Dose of Colors Truffle is the one when I want a softer nude with a velvety matte finish. Seriously my favorite liquid lipstick formula!

Two long time loves of mine are MAC Velvet Teddy, a matte rosey beige, and MAC Honeylove, a matte peachier beige. They’re both staples for when I want a nude lip and don’t really want to think about what I’m going to put on my lips.

For when I want a glossy, juicy pout, I’ve been turning to Lorac Duchess, a rosy nude. The Lorac glosses are some of my all time faves because they’re pigmented, but not overly pigmented, super smooth, and super glossy. Another is the Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel 35 Earth & FireIt’s a rosy brown nude with a high shine finish, and it’s pigmented, but still sheer. The only thing I don’t like about it is the smell, but that dissipates after a while.

  • Some of these are too brown for me – I find that pinky nudes suit me best but I love the look of the Lorac gloss in the swatches! xx

    These nude lipsticks look absolutely stunning! I am completely obsessed with nude lips. I find that some wonderful ones come from rimmel. I also love my chichi lipsticks and the sports girl nude shades i picked up. I definitely want to get even more rimmel lipsticks, they’ve come out with some awesome nude shades and i so want to try the nyx lip creams and lingerie liquid lipsticks. Lovely post

    • Ooh I haven’t tried any Rimmel lippies. I need to get on it :)

      • Bernadette

        Yes you do girl!

  • Samileen

    I don’t think anyone can resist a good nude lip. And all these colors are right up my street. Specially truffle, I have been meaning to get that one for the longest time, but haven’t gotten around getting it yet. But I think it shall be coming home soon.

  • Gorgeous picks, as I expected! I love nude lips, and Velvet Teddy and Bow n Arrow are both favorites of mine. I’ve never really seen NARS Bahama before, but it has now jumped onto my list, as well as Jouer Noisette and Dose of Colors Truffle.

    I have NC40 skin and I think I’m medium-skinned. I want to try these but I’m generally more into bold colors! I definitely need to try out more nudes, though.

    • I’m an NC30-35 so these will look gorgeous on you! I think Honeylove might be a little too light. Definitely give them a go :)

      • Ela

        My current fave sort-of-nude is Colourpop’s Ultra Satin Lip in Frick ‘n Frack.

  • Honey Love and Velvet Teddy are some of my absolute favs!

    I can’t believe I am saying this but I tend to always never wear lip colour because I have large lips and not in a good way. So seeing this choice of nudes gives me hope that there might be something for me out there. Thanks for sharing and my favourite would be YSL nude lip shines because they don’t have much colour pay off.

  • I’ve recently discovered MAC lipsticks for myself and really want to try their nudes. I’ve been eyeing Honeylove and I think it’ll be my next purchase.
