5 Nude Lipsticks for Every Skin Tone


Nyx Liquid Suede, “Sandstorm”

 $7 USD/$10 CAD

I find this formula very pigmented, lasts well and the color is a very true nude, definitely sitting on the brown side of nude, rather than pink, which I like. This shade can be flattering on many skin tones too. For the price, the NYX Liquid Suede lipsticks are really worth the money and there's so many colors to choose from!


Mac Cosmetics "Velvet Teddy"

 $ /$22 CAD

MAC's most iconic shade, which was sold out for months on end after Kylie Jenner said she wore it, Velvet Teddy is a classic nude. A matte formula, but still very comfortable to wear. Described as a deep tone beige, it's your classic 90's lip shade. I find it very wearable and it's the perfect balance between cool and warm. It's also one of those shades that can look different on everyone - and still be flattering. 


Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips "Best Actress"

$39 USD/ 

A very new addition to my collection, but has earned it's spot in this post after only 1 wear, I know. The shade is the most perfect nude for me, it's a nude brown that's not too cool, nor too warm. The formula is creamy, lasts all day, and when I say all day, I mean ALL day. I ate lunch, talked lots, drank lots of glasses of water - it was still there after a full day at work. It had started to fade slightly, but I had to get up super close to notice. Amazing - and I will certainly be returning to swatch some more shades.


Kat Von D "Bow And Arrow"

 $20 USD/$24 CAD

Super matte without drying your lips, it's very similar to NYX "Sandstorm", but it packs more punch. It's highly pigmented and its lasting power is seriously good. It's the perfect warm, medium toned brown shade and one you can slap on with any makeup look and it just works. Love!


Tom Ford "Sable Smoke"

 $54 USD

A beautiful, creamy, caramel nude shade. It applies like a matte formula, but has a slight sheen to it that doesn't make it look matte on the lips. It's super comfortable to wear. It's high end, super luxurious and worth every single penny.
