Nude lipstick has always been my go to! Typically you’ll find me wearing a shade of nude no matter what day of the week, time of the year, or which event I’m heading to. It’s always my staple!
Over the years I’ve purchased an ungodly amount of nude lipstick, and after all of these years, I’m still gravitating to the same ones. Today, I’m sharing my top 3 nude lipsticks, which are at 3 different price points! PLUS I’m sharing my go to liner and gloss that complements all of these lipsticks.
First of all, you cannot beat a $6 lipstick! These days even drugstore lipsticks peak the $10 mark. I picked this color up after hearing about how long lasting the Super Stay collection is, and fell in love with Loyalist! They last all day and aren’t sticky. This color is a true nude/pink. It’s not too light, but very natural. Love it for everyday!
MAC’s Myth has been my go to light nude lip color since high school. One day I walked into MAC and the sales girl was wearing it and I was like, “Whatever is on your lips I need right now!!” And that was history. I picked up Myth, Subculture (details below) for liner, and C-Thru gloss. They’re still my top picks and although they’re $6 more expensive than in 2005, I’m fine with it.
Plus, MAC has a recycle program. For every 5 empty containers you bring in, you get a free item of choice!
Let’s be honest, Kim Kardashion knows a thing or two about glam makeup! It’s no wonder Charlotte Tilburry teamed up with Kim K and created this lipstick masterpiece. By far it’s the biggest splurge lipstick I’ve ever owned, but I don’t regret it one bit!
The lipstick itself is creamy and moisturizing. The color itself is utterly flawless! It’s a light nude with a hint of pink (but not too much pink), while still appearing more beige. I’m obsessed! By far this is the best lipstick I’ve ever owned.
I line it with MAC’s subculture lip liner, and it’s super natural in appearance. The two colors together complement each other well.
I’ve actually had this same liner for over two years. I use it frequently, and it’s SO long lasting. Considering how often I use it, I can’t believe it’s only $18. That’s like 2 cents per day to use it. Totally worth it and the best nude liner I’ve ever found!
White Russian is a staple from Buxom Cosmetics. I’ve used this color since college (like 2008 maybe?). The thing I love about this gloss is it’s cooling and plumping in appearance. It feels SO good when it hits your lips (and I mean it!).
