Every girl needs a good nude lipstick! They are perfect to wear for your “everyday” look and when you have a bold eye and need a nice toned down lip! However…being a WOC, wearing a nude lip can be tricky. If not done correctly your lips can come off looking ashy (Tyrone Biggums anyone?) or the nude washes you out and makes you look sick. So I will show you some of my favorite nudes.
MAC’s Creme In Your Coffee: I picked this color up because Kendra of GlamTwinz334(Youtube) raved about it. MAC describes this color as a creamy mid-tone pink brown. I usually wear this to work because I don’t have to line it, and I just throw it on. It is a cremesheen so its very moisturizing and creamy (go figure).
MAC’s Velvet Teddy: MAC describes this color as a deep-tone beige. This color is matte, although I always top it with a gloss. To make it work for me I wear it with MAC’s Cork lip liner and top with NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural.
MAC’s Catty: MAC describes this color as a light creamy pink. I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK! I think this is the perfect pinky-nude for the Spring/Summer. It’s a Lustre formula so it goes on sheer and creamy but you can build it up. I pair it with NXY lipliner in cappuccino. I would not suggest wearing this without a lipliner if your a WOC, its just too light.
Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita: Sephora describes this color as a dusty rose. On fair women it looks like the “Kylie Jenner” lip. On WOC it looks like the popular 90’s lipstick trend. It can look washed out if you do not line your lips. MAC’s Chestnut lip liner works great.
To be honest I never look for nude lipsticks at the drug store. Most of them are just not made for our skin tone. The ones I do own are very affordable and I like them a lot.
Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish by Kate Moss #14: This nude is a true neutral nude. I line it with NYX cappuccino and top it with NARS gloss in Coup De Coeur (may be discontinued). I like to wear this when I just have on powder and mascara, it really pulls the no makeup look off well.
L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Elude: First of all…I paid $1.99 for this (IMATS)!! The pigmentation alone is worth more than $1.99! Back to it, you MUST line your lips with this gloss. My trusted NXY cappuccino liner does the trick. I always pop this on when I have a nice bronze eye look.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi: NYX describes this as a deep-rose beige. I love how soft this feels on the lips. This is the only nude I wear as a matte.The color looks very natural. I also line this with NYX cappuccino liner.
