The nude lip is going through a bit of a revival at the moment, thanks to celebs such as Kylie Jenner. If applied correctly, it gives the lips a very full, pouty look and looks great on just about anyone. The trick, of course, is to find a nude colour that suits you. And that’s where the problem lies! With so many nude coloured lip products on the market, it can be quite overwhelming to know where to start. Most of the time the right shade is found through trial and error.
I’ve put together a list of my favourite nude coloured lipsticks. Obviously these won’t suit absolutely everyone, but they will suit many, especially those with a light to medium skin tone. Like any makeup product, it’s important to test out the colour on you before purchase. Without further ado, here they are!
Mac Glaze in ‘Hue’. This is my perfect ‘everyday’ shade and suits just about every makeup look. It’s got just the right amount of pink in it. In saying that, this would probably be better suited to fair-to-medium skin toned girls, as it may wash out darker complexions.
Ere Perez Real Rosehip Lipbar in ‘Nude’. I’ve blogged about this product before and it’s definitely my most used nude lipstick. It’s got a rose tinge to it so it’s like a better version of your natural lip colour. I like when companies only bring out one ‘nude’ lipstick, one ‘red’ lipstick etc, as they tend to suit a wide variety of people, with varying skin tones. If you haven’t tried this one it’s worth checking out!

Korres Cherry Lipgloss in ‘Light Purple’. This is not technically a nude shade, but it’s quite light and sheer in colour so I’ll include it. As the name suggests, it’s a very soft lilac based shade, with fine shimmer throughout. It’s a pretty understated shade for daytime.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Istanbul’. This is the perfect matte lipstick to pair with a smoky eye. It’s quite pink toned and dries to a matte finish, and looks really gorgeous on. It gives the lips a very ‘full’ look.

I know MAC lipstick in ‘Teddy Bear’ is a really popular nude shade and is rumoured to be the lipstick of choice behind Kylie Jenner’s famous pout. I own this shade but don’t really wear it often. I think I need to dig it out again…
