Nude lipsticks are my absolute favorite to wear any time of year—they’re versatile, easy, and yet make you feel so much more put together than wearing nothing at all. In Autumn I like to go a little darker and more beige than my natural lip color, compared to the pink and peachy-toned nudes I choose in the warmer months. I had far too many to pick from when I was planning out this post, so here are ten of my favorite nude lippies to wear when the leaves start to fall!
This may be my perfect nude—not only is it my favorite light beige-based nude, it’s also named after my star sign. This color is easy to wear which is why I have so many similar ones in my collection. This Lippie Stix has a comfortable crème finish for those days when my lips can’t stand another matte!
Although this is a recent purchase for me, I know I’ll be wearing it throughout the fall and winter so I had to include it. This one is more of a mauve-based nude that looks kind of ‘meh’ in the tube but completely transforms when you apply it or swatch it. Looking at swatches, this is very similar to Aquarius but I prefer this formula and you get more product with this lipstick!
Here it is. My current favorite nude—if you get any of the products on this list, get this. Stripped Down is a darker nude than I usually go for but it’s absolutely gorgeous. These are similar to the Too Faced Melted lipsticks but a lot of people seem to like them more. This is highly pigmented and is surprisingly durable for a glossier, satin finish! My full review is here if you want an entire post raving about it.
If you aren’t a fan of ultra-matte liquid lipsticks, this is for you! These creamy, opaque lipsticks have great staying power without being super-drying, which I hate in a liquid lipstick. The shade is another light beige nude with a hint of pink. If you’re pale like me, this will be a beautiful shade, but it may wash out those with deeper skin tones.
This is one of my newest lipstick purchases but it’s different from any other nude in my collection because it’s a red-based nude, almost a terra-cotta color. I’ve been looking for something like this for ages and I finally found it in my favorite drugstore lipstick line! All skin tones can rock this and it’s perfect for Autumn.
This rosy-toned liquid lipstick made an appearance in my August Ipsy bag and I was immediately hooked on the color. The formula is similar to Tarte’s but it’s slightly more aqueous while remaining opaque. Again, this is a darker color than I usually go for but it’s absolutely gorgeous on the lips.
Nyx Butter Lipstick in Snowcap (or Boardwalk according to Ulta)
I know everyone raves about the Butter glosses, but the lipstick versions are amazing as well and I’ve never seen anyone talk about them! This color is more pink-toned than the others I’ve included and it’s a great dupe for MAC’s Hue, Snowcap is only slightly darker. I like the formula of the Nyx one better because it’s more nourishing and more pigmented. You can’t go wrong with a color like this!
MAC Hue vs. Nyx Snowcap
I’m. In. Love. With. This. Shade. As if you couldn’t tell already! This is a great color for all times of the year but especially for the awkward time between summer and autumn when you can’t break out the corals or the berries. The Ultra Satin liquid lipstick is also my favorite kind of formula that doesn’t dry down completely, so it’s not complete murder on your lips!
Despite being ridiculously small for the price, I love this shade. It’s more of a true brown than my other nudes and I find that it looks really flattering on the lips. This lipstick is very comfortable and has hints of rose and red to it, which is what I think makes it so unique!
This may be my favorite lipstick of all time so I had to include it! This is the beige-nude that made me fall in love with beige nudes, and I love MAC’s matte formula because it isn’t drying at all. I consider this to be the Velvet Teddy for fair girls, so if you’ve been considering the famous darker shade try this one out, too!
While a lot of these are similar shades, they differ in formula, lasting power and price. Nudes are a safe bet for the in-between seasons so you can’t go wrong with one of these!
