5 - Top 5 Nude/ Neutral Lipsticks

Neutral lipsticks are the 'hot look' right now and everyone is obsessed with the She Who Shall Not Be Named lip colour. I love a good nude lipstick, especially paired with a bold eye look or colourful outfit. For POC the every day beauty blogger/ vlogger's idea of a 'perfect nude' might not actually be the perfect nude on every skin tone.

SO - this is a little guide on my perfect neutral/nude lipsticks that I hope will offer a little helping hand to everyone who's struggled to find a decent nude lipstick.



One.
Maybelline - Colour Sensational lipstick in Honey Beige
This is probably my palest nude lipstick - it's a really good base lipstick for neutralising my lips and almost giving me that 'foundation lip' look. This shade is also really nice over a brown/pink toned neutral lip liner too. It's a good shade for putting over brighter colours to tone it down a bit too.





Two.
NYX - Creamy Round Lipstick in Stone
I'm so in love with these round lipsticks for a quick pop of colour - the shade range is beautiful and they're super creamy and moisturising without completely disappearing off my lips when I take a bite of a sandwich. It's a really nice brown toned nude shade which is really comfortable to wear.




Three.
Illamasqua - Glamore Lipstick in Buff
I've recently done a post on this lipstick and how much I'm in love with it, but I couldn't leave it off this post! If you missed that post, you can read it here! This shade is a beautiful grey/ brown or 'greige' toned nude shade that I think is really complimentary for brown skin.




Four.
NYX - Soft Matte Lip Cream in London
Ok, how have I not owned one of these lip creams before now?! These creams wear sooooo nicely. They're a matte finish but they're lovely and creamy and comfortable to wear. Also, they smell so nice, like vanilla ice cream! The shade London is a lovely pale creamy beige toned nude which I think is really nice for brown skin tones.




Five.
Kat Von D - Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita
I've pretty much saved the best till last - I don't think Lolita needs any introduction, as it's pretty much known all over the beauty world. These Kat Von D everlasting liquid lipsticks have an incredible formula. I love liquid to matte lipsticks, they're long wearing and pigmented and I never have to worry about smudging or reapplying every 5 seconds. This shade is my perfect browney pink toned nude and I love wearing it over different nude lip liners. I also love putting this over different matte shades as it completely transforms the colour. I highly recommend this shade to my fellow people of colour as it's so complimentary!





And that's it! What are your favourite nude shades?
