Hey Fam! hope everyone is doing well! I hope you guys are ready for today’s post, it’s a good one. We are talking about nudes 😉 I am a HUGE fan of nude lipsticks. , I think they are flattering on any skin tone. Nudes are the easiest thing to go for when you are running out of the house or you just need a little extra sumthin, sumthin.
I have created a list featuring the best and the worst nude lippies for fair skin. These are the ones I have found are the most flattering and not-so flattering on my shade of pale, ha! All of these range in price as well, as you can see there are some drug store options! well, with out further ado.
Let’s do this.
Ofra Cosmetics – Aries: B
I’ll be honest, it took me a while to really like this shade. At first I thought it was WAY too peachy for my liking, but it somehow grew on me and has become one of my fave nudes to wear with a warmer eye look! The formula from Ofra is not my favorite, but it’s not the worst. I always hear beauty gurus say it’s the best formula. I disagree; it never dries down on me, and it feels a little thick. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me and I’m using too much — hah, I’m curious if any of you have tried Ofra and what your opinion is? Let me know in the comments! Regardless of the formula not being totally matte, this lipstick is still stunning.
Maybeline Vivid Matte Liquid- Nude Thrill: D+
Not the biggest fan of this color. I wanted to LOVE it because I heard it was a dupe for Kylie Cosmetics Dolce Kay, but no, it does not work for me. It pulls way too orange on me and I am just not a fan of the color. Also the formula does not dry down at all, which annoys me, but it is very soft and light on your lips. That’s honestly the only good thing I can say about this. I wish it worked on me cause it is such a stunning color, ha, sad day.
NYX Lingerie- Satin Ribbon: A-
These NYX Lingerie lippies are SO GOOD! I love this lipstick so much. It’s been one of my go -tos since I bought it. It goes with everything, looks stunning, and lasts for a long time! The formula of this lipstick is pretty amazing! I love how moussey it is, and I don’t even feel it on my lips, which is my fave. Also, these are like 8 bucks at Ulta, and honestly it might be better than some of the higher quality liquid lippies so that’s saying something! These are incredible!
LipSense- First Love: A
I love these LipSense lippies. I think they are incredible, and if you use the Clinique Take The Day off Balm you will have NO problem taking it off at night! My favorite thing about this lipstick is how long it stays, and the color is seriously the most stunning nude on me. I’m obsessed. If you are interested in learning more about the lipsense you can click the link for my LipSense review I did earlier this week! Ya’ll know I love these.
This color is STUNNING! it is a cool tone mauvey pink. That is just unreal ha. I love this color a lot. The reason I give it a B is because I don’t like how it doesn’t fully dry down. It is much more of a light wear lipstick. I don’t care though, the color is incredible and I will continue to wear it ha! It is a much more unique nude shade, it almost has a hint of purple to it, which I think is why I like it so much. There is no other color exactly the same!
This was my ride or die all last fall/winter. Something about a cool tone brown seemed slightly edgy and I liked that. I have two Kat Von D Everlasting Lips; Bow & Arrow and Lolita. Bow and Arrow is such a unique shade, and I think that is why I like it SO much! The formulas for the Kat Von D liquid lips are very nice! They are light weight, and they dry down fully matte which I love! (I’m so over gloss!) The color on is true to the color in the tube so you know exactly what you are getting. I don’t recommend using a lipliner with this liquid lipstick though. Since the color is so spot on when you put it directly on your lips, any other tone is going to make the color pull orange. which is not pretty. Other than that though, this lipstick is one of my favorites!
I hope you guys enjoyed this review! I know I had a blast writing it! Let me know in the comments what your favorite nude lipsticks are! I always love hearing everyone else’s opinions!
Until next time!
