Hello and happy Sunday. We all love nudes, don’t we? Even if some of us prefer bolder shades, we have to admit that nudes are cute and comfortable, and an easy option when we don’t have the time to come up with a super complex avant-garde makeup look. I have my fair share of nude lippies and I want to share them with you in today’s post. Let’s get started, shall we?
Had I known about the wonderful world of makeup when I was at school, I’d totally rocked this lip gloss. It’s super natural, but at the same time that shade of pink is flirty and cute. Just add some mascara and you’re good to go.
I’ve worn this as a lip topper and by itself. It adds that dash of boldness to your look because it is metallic, and you can see and feel the glitter. Yes, you can feel it on your lips. If you’re extra sensitive then this might be a problem to you, but it’s definitely not one for me. The shade is on the pink/mauve side, and I think it’s the perfect Girl Boss product.
When my little sister was about fifteen, she told me she wanted to learn about makeup. I was in panic because of course, this was my baby sister and I didn’t want her to get into that world just yet. This lip gloss is a product I’d recommend to those girls who (in my opinion) are still too young for more serious makeup. It’s barely there, I mean you can’t even see it in the picture, but it’s gloss so it adds something to the lips without it being too much.
I think this is one of those controversial shades that some people won’t even consider a nude, but I do because it has this pink undertone that doesn’t allow me to place it in the “browns” pile. It’s a great shade when you’re wearing golds, browns, or pinks, so it would be an amazing everyday lip gloss for many. I like to wear it when I want my eyes to be the center of attention as opposed to my lips (or, you know, my whole face). If you want to venture into bolder, brown tones, this is your to-go lippie.
This is a gorgeous pearly/pink color, which I love, and which is why I bought the lipstick. It is very similar to my skin tone, so that’s why you can’t see it in the picture. When I wear this by itself, it looks like I’m either ill or I have concealer lips, so I only use this shade as a lip topper to accentuate the pout-like shape of my lips.
This looks like a dark shade of beige against my skin, which is stepping on the line between the nudes and the browns. My lips are naturally a cherry shade of pink, so I think the combination of them and this lip cream makes them look more on the nude side. I wear it by itself, or add one of the lip toppers I’ve talked about throughout this post. The shade of the topper can also make the lip color look different, so you can play around with that depending on what shade you want to sport.
If I were to pick my favorite nude lip product out of the ones in this post, it would be this lip gloss. It’s got a thick texture, which I love because it makes the application quick and easy. The pigmentation is on point, and the shade of the actual gloss is opaque, so I almost feel like I’m putting on a cream lipstick. Then again, this doesn’t dry down and actually helps keep my lips looking and feeling hydrated and healthy. The shade has a mauve undertone I live for.
I know this is a confusing shade, and to be honest I’m having trouble coming up with a description for the color. Against the skin of my arm, it almost looks brown, but when you see the product in the tube, you get this matte mauve. When I apply it to my lips, I swear it blends in so perfectly it’s as if I wasn’t wearing anything. I mean, it’s great because it’s like an enhanced version of my lips.
If you’re into tinted lip balms, then you’ll like this one. I think it’s still the kind of product I’d have worn at school, but this one is more pigmented. It also smells great, so it sort of makes me want to always have it with me to reapply.

I usually wear this as a lip topper because it’s got a metallic vibe to it, so when I’ve tried it by itself I haven’t really liked how it looks. My favorite thing about this lipstick is the smooth, creamy texture and the fact that it lasts all day long without me needing to reapply.
I feel like this is the toned-down version of the Vasanti lip gloss. It’s softer in shade, but not in pigmentation. It’s thick and opaque, although it has a pink undertone rather than a mauve one. I think it looks great with pink or brown eye looks.
I bought this a while ago because Nikkie Tutorials told me to. This is probably the OG nude shade and I used to reach for it a lot before I got all the other lippies I’ve talked about in this post. It’s a super sober color, and I think it’s one of those foolproof shades that goes well with just about anything, so if you have this you’re good to go.
This is a borderline pink shade. It has a very strong, perfume-y scent, which might bother some people. It dries down pretty quickly, but the feeling of the product remains for a while, and I think this probably happens because of the fragrance. It’s alright for a liquid lipstick, but it’s by no means the best product out there, in my opinion.
In the comments below tell me about your favorite nude lippie and the reasons why you love it.
Love, Miss Camila
