Ever since I started wearing makeup, I always gravitated towards nude lipsticks. While most friends my age chose bright pinks and soft reds, I reached for browns, taupes, and soft peaches. I loved them on Julia Louis Dreyfus in Seinfeld, on Michelle Pfeiffer in One Fine Day, and now, yes, even on Kylie Jenner. I always appreciated the “your lips, but better” look, especially in the colder months (in the summer, I do admit I’m partial to coral). Thus my mission to try as many different nude lipsticks in various finishes as possible began.

So far, these are some of my favorite nude lipsticks that I’ve tried over the past year. I love Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks in “Carmello” and “Dolce” and Maybelline’s Sensational Inte-Matte Lipstick in “Raw Chocolate” for their pigment, NYX’s Butter Lipstick in “Tan Lines” and RealHer’s Lipstick in “I Love Myself” for their moisturizing qualities, and Lorac’s Hydrating Lip Stains in “Secret Agent” and “Comedienne” for their convenience. Whatever finish you prefer, there’s a lipstick here I’m sure you’d love!

Which nude lipsticks do you like the most?

I received the Stila, Lorac, and RealHer lipsticks complimentary for review. I purchased the NYX and Maybelline lipsticks myself.
