BEAUTY | Everyday Nude Lipsticks

nude lipstick for womem of color

If you've been here for a while, you know I love talking about lipsticks around here. I've talked about pink lipsticks, I've carried on about red lipsticks. I've even shared some of my favorite liquid lipsticks and urged you to add these five "very necessary" lipsticks to your beauty arsenal. But the overlooked gem I haven't mentioned here in a while is the perfect nude lipstick. And while I don't give them much spotlight on the blog, nude, neutral shades are the lipsticks I spend the most time with. I can wear them all day, every single day, no matter the occasion. A nude lip translates well from day to night, from season to season, and from one occasion to the next. So without further adieu, let's get into what I  like to call my "week's worth" of everyday nude lipsticks.

MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL LIPSTICK IN TRUFFLE TEASE | This color is a warm peachy-nude that can come off as a bit grey depending on your natural lip color. It has a slight glossy finish and can be purchased at virtually any drugstore for around $7.
MILANI COLOR STATEMENT LIPSTICK IN ROSE FEMME | Rose Femme is a cool mauve-nude that I like to consider a "lips but better" shade. It has a creamy finish and can be purchased from any drugstore for around $5.
MAC FANFARE CREMESHEEN LIPSTICK | Fanfare is a warm pinky-nude with a cremesheen finish that would be another "lips but better" shade for me. You can find this on the MAC website for $17.
MAC CREME DE LA FEMME FROST LIPSTICK | Femme is a frost, sheer mauve-pink shade that's described as "pink laced with gold" by MAC. You can grab this one from the website as well.
MAC SHY GIRL CREMESHEEN LIPSTICK | Shy Girl is one of my favorite lipsticks! It's a warm peachy nude with a cremesheen finish. It can be purchased from the MAC website also.
WET N' WILD MEGALAST LIPSTICK IN BARE IT ALL | Bare it All is light brown-nude matte lipstick that is my go-to from the bunch for when I wear a dramatic eye. It's also the most affordable at around $2 from your local drugstore.
BITE BEAUTY AMUSE BOUCHE LIPSTICK IN PEPPER | Pepper is a warm rosy-mauve shade which may be my favorite "lips but better" lipstick shade. If you follow me on Insta, you already know how much I love this one. It can be purchased at Sephora.

When I want to tone these lipsticks down even further than they already are, I just apply NYX lipliner in Espresso and a hint of NYC City Clear lipgloss.

Below are swatches.
