My Top Nude Lipsticks

Hey Hopefuls,

As a pale girl myself I find that a mauve nude looks best on my skin, it doesn't wash me out and provides the perfect "my lips but better".  I have naturally pigmented lips so the nudes I like tend to be a little darker than most would expect.   

Shown below are my top 7 (I know random) nude lipsticks.  I have a mixture of high end and drugstore but most tend to be drugstore options.  

From Left, Top to Bottom: Rimmel - Nude Delight, Rimmel - Airy Fairy, Maybelline - Born With It.

Nude Delight is a moisturizing peachy nude, Airy Fairy is creamy mauve-y nude and Born With It is almost a true pale pink.

From Right, Top to Bottom: Make Up For Ever - N9, Too Faced - In the Buff, Loreal - Fairest Nude, NYX Black Label - Heiress.

N9 is a dark red-ish nude, I find that this lipstick is a shade or two darker than my natural lip color but it helps get me out of my nude comfort zone.  In the Buff is a creamy sheer mauve-y nude, Fairest Nude is a cult favorite I would say it resembles a brick nude and Heiress is a grape candy scented pinky mauve-y nude that is almost exactly my lip color.  

I would say my two favorites would be Rimmel's Airy Fairy and NYX Heiress.  I don't see the NYX black label lipsticks talked about nearly enough on blogs or on YouTube.  They are an amazing line, but I'll talk about those another day.  

Hopeful Alyssa
