Best Nude Lip Products


I used to only wear chap stick- Burt’s Bees to be exact. I still wear it, but now it’s a base to make sure my lips are moisturized for lip products! Over the last year or two I’ve really gotten out of my comfort zone and started experimenting with lip color. I’ve done fuchsia, pink, bright red and even vampy reds, but my favorite will always be nudes. They allow me to have a uniform color all over my lips but it’s still subtle enough for every day wear and work. I’ve rounded up my favorite nude lipsticks, lip pencils and lip glosses- in the tube they all look like the same color, but you’ll see in the swatches that they’re all distinct.

L-R: Milani Color Statment Lipstick, Nude Cream;  MAC Lipstick, Velvet TeddyNARS Sheer Lipstick, Dolce Vita; Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick, Angelic Nude; Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick, Liar

 L-R: Milani;  MACNARS; Tarte; Urban Decay

As you can see, the Milani and Tarte are similar with a more pink color, while MAC and Urban Decay are darker with more of a brown tint. The NARS is the most sheer, with coloring between the pinks and browns.

L-R: NARS Satin Lip Pencil, Rikugien;  Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain, Lucky; theBalm Read My Lips Lip Gloss, Bam!


L-R: NARS; Manna Kadar; theBalm

The Manna Kadar lipgloss is very similar to the MAC and Urban Decay, but more sheer. theBalm is very similar to the Milani lipstick and is very opaque. The NARS lip pencil is again pretty sheer but easy to build the color.

  • This is the 2nd time today I’ve seen the UD Liar shown, it looks SO nice!
    Lately I’ve been wearing Clinique Lip Pop in Bare Pop – really pretty nude colour!

    • I haven’t tried any Clinique lip products, will have to test that out. UD liar is my favorite right now!

  • These are SUCH beautiful nudey shades! Love this swatch review girl 😍👏🏻

    • Thank you ☺️

  • Lovely neutral picks. I want to try NARS but it seems so pricey! I’m also very interested in Tarte’s lipsticks, especially the new ones that just came out. They seem so moisturizing!

      I felt the same way about NARS so I only got to test it through a Sephora Favorites kit and the birthday gift from a few years back, and now I can say it’s worth the price! I haven’t tried the new Tarte ones, but I want to also! Thanks for visiting 🙂
