Top 5 Favorite Nude Lipsticks

LRM_EXPORT_20170913_170401

Hello beauties! Welcome to another blog of the Top 5 series.

Though this blog won 54% votes on Twitter poll, greater than the foundation one, I’m doing this later as I wanted to give you perfect swatches for you to decide. Trust me when I say, selecting 5 shades was most difficult job of all time. I could pick top 5 not fav nude lipsticks but shortlisting others into 5 was hell of a task. So I cheated and made a list of top 6, sorry for that.

So I kept in mind all kind of undertone, skin tones and finishes so if you are looking for specifics, it will be easier to choose. Also these are my current favs and there might be better lipsticks in market which I haven’t tried, I’m not speaking on the world wide range but my top 5 from my collection of lipsticks. These are not in any specific order but some of these are my absolute ride or die lipsticks. So lets get started with the lipsticks:

1. Nykaa So Matte Lipstick: Taupe Thrill:LRM_EXPORT_20170913_154054

Shade: Taupe

Undertone: Neutral

Finish: Satin

Stay power: 5-6 hours

Suitable for: All skin tones

Price: 399/- INR

Available on: Nykaa.

If I had to choose one lipstick to wear for the rest of my life, it would be this! This is such a versatile shade and goes with every look from day to night. It looks good on every skin tone. I’ve used up this lipstick more than any other that I own. Whenever someone asks me to suggest a good lipstick, this is always my number 1 option. It is affordable and if you want to see complete review, click here.

2. Nykaa So Matte Lipstick: Naughty nude:LRM_EXPORT_20170913_154232

If you are looking for a shade like taupe thrill but pinker, this is the one. I used to love this shade at first but then I was not into pinks so I stopped using this but now I’m loving pinks and this is one of my go-to lipsticks. If you want to know complete review, click here.

3. L.A. Colors Pout Lip Gloss: Enticing:LRM_EXPORT_20170913_154326

Shade: Brown

Undertone: Cool

Finish: Matte

Stay power: 10-12 hours

Suitable for: All skin tones

Price: 325/- INR

Available on: Nykaa

When I first bought 3 shades from this range, I wasn’t happy with this product. It smells weird, the applicator is terrible and the packaging is a bit inconvenient. But the shade, oh my god! It’s so beautiful and long wearing. The swatch you see here is taken after 8 hours of wear time. It does look a bit creaky and dry but it’s amazing for everyday use. There are more beautiful shades that I have but this is my fav and other nudes are way too light for Indian skin tone. It is a bit tricky to work with and you need to get all the excess off the wand otherwise the application becomes glob-y and patchy. I love this range because it is super affordable and long wearing and dries down completely matte without budging throughout the day unless you are having greasy meal. If you are looking for everyday long wearing nude matte liquid lipstick, go for this.

4. M.A.C Twig:LRM_EXPORT_20170913_154802

Shade: Mauve

Undertone: Neutral

Finish: Satin

Stay power: 6-7 hours

Suitable for: Light to Medium-Dark

Price: 1450/- INR

Available on: Nykaa

I love this lipstick more for it’s formulation that the shade. The shade no doubt is gorgeous but there is something about M.A.C lipsticks that they beat every other lipstick. Whenever I wear this, it’s a good makeup day. It is a versatile shade and can be paired with various looks. This is my second most favorite after taupe thrill. I have a complete review on this from long time ago, click here to check it out.

Of course I couldn’t leave the glosses behind! I’m more into mattes and semi mattes but there are some days when you need some shine to brighten up your look and you can never go wrong with a nude gloss. This is such a versatile gloss, just add it to the shades which seem a bit off and it completely transforms the color. Add it to a lighter shade to match a bit darker or layer it over a darker shade to mute it down. You can also wear this on its own as it is quite opaque and smells heavenly. It has the most unique applicator and is very high shine gloss without chunks of glitter. Out of all glosses I own, this is my favorite of all.

  2. Wow!!! I am so exciting about your post. I Love Nykaa lipstick and the colors go with matching clothes. Many women wrongly believe they can’t wear red lipstick. But Red lipstick is timeless and bridges age
