Finding a nude lipstick that flatters your skin but doesn’t dry out your lips and feels good to wear is no mean feat. Believe us, we know. That’s why we have compiled the definitive Space NK edit of the best nudes for you.
Best For: A Universally Flattering Color
With a subtle shot of warm rosy pink, this lip color in Celestine compliments all skin tones. The cleverly shaped bullet does away with the need for a lip pencil while the color itself is easily buildable with a soft suede-like finish.
Best For: A Non-Drying Matte Finish
Unlike some matte pigments, this liquid lipstick feels hydrating and comfortable all day. Thanks to its vitamin E boosted formula, there’s nothing drying about it, just long-lasting velvet-finish color that packs a punch. This shade is very versatile too; it’s a perfect complement to dark skin and looks rich and earthy on pale skin tones.
Best For: Hydrating Dry Lips
If you’re looking for a nude lipstick that’s hydrating and comfortable enough to wear all day, even on parched lips, this is it. With jojoba, mimosa and shea butter its formula is super-moisturizing but still light-weight. We love the shape too because it makes even mirror less application a breeze.
Best For: Long-Lasting Wear
This pinky nude lipstick is enriched with baobab oils which makes it both gentle and nourishing. Its clever formula leaves a silky veil of moisture over your lips which, along with its color, last through a day of talking, eating and drinking.
Best For: Dark skin tones
Whereas paler skin tones tend to have an element of pinky beige to the lips natural shade, dark skin tones have a richer, reddish-shade. This twist-up lip color is the perfect shade for medium-to-dark skin tones. Its hydrating formula leaves a soft sheen on lips and its innovative shape makes application super-easy.
