Share Button

Hi lovelies! Long time, no lipstick post! So today let’s talk lipstick love.

I always say that you cannot go wrong with a red lipstick or a fuchsia lipstick, but with a nude lipstick there are high chances of going wrong. Choosing the right shade and undertone is crucial.

Can never have enough nude lipsticks!

A couple shades lighter can wash you out, and a shade darker might not be the perfect nude for your skintone. The best way is to swatch and test, and another way is to take my recommendations.

Here are my favorite top 5 nude lipsticks.

1.MAC – Mehr

The favorite gets the top spot and I cannot express enough love for this beautiful shade. It’s like dusty rose meets nude, perfect for all skin tones. The texture is matte, but not like MAC Retro Matte lipsticks, so it doesn’t parch your lips. A great day wear shade that you can totally carry off to work as well!

2. Maybelline Creamy Matte – Touch of Spice

If you’re someone who likes pinkish nudes, then this gorgeous lipstick is your perfect match! As the name suggests it’s a comfortable creamy matte finish. Glides easily and gives great color pay off! It isn’t transfer proof and will need touch ups.

Such a pretty shade! Will suit all skin tones.

Maybelline is a great drugstore brand and the quality is amazing. The price is quite affordable, so you don’t need to burn a hole in your pocket. Also I’ve read this shade is a close dupe for Mac Twig (Cannot vouch for it, because I don’t have that shade of MAC lipstick).

3. Nykaa Matte to Last Liquid Lipstick – Madras Kaapi

Madras Kaapi was among the first shades launched under the Nykaa liquid lipstick range. It’s a beautiful brownie nude, which will look super flattering for deep dusky skin tones. For light to medium skin tones this will be a light brown, something not too intimidating.

Love this darker nude shade!

The formula is great, intense pigmentation, light on the lips, doesn’t smudge or budge, and is pretty comfortable. Also for the price, it is total value for money.

Price –599/- 

4. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse – Coffee Lite

One of my favorites from the list and in the drugstore category. Have talked about this one in a couple of monthly favorites as well.

Ignore the drawing, focus on the creativity 🙂

It’s a beautiful MLBB shade, perfect for everyday use. The tear drop shaped applicator picks up the right amount of product. It’s a lip and cheek mousse, but I personally think it works best as a liquid lipstick. The formula is pretty comfortable, doesn’t dry your lips. Just make sure to moisturize your lips well, or it might settle into lines. The color pay off is amazing, its supremely pigmented, and is affordable – so what else can you ask for??

5. Maybelline Lip Gradation – Muave 1

Clearly Maybelline gets a lot of love! Well, this stunner comes in a twist up form and is a great nude for almost all skin tones. Its beautifully pigmented, glides easily, and looks stunning. For the affordable category, this is a must have. You can even mix this with your dark berries and burgundies to lighten them!
