Drugstore Nude Lipsticks
All of us love a perfect nude lip, right? It’s easy to wear, goes with almost any eyeshadow look, and feels effortless. The perfect nude lipstick can make anyone feel confident, and it’s a no-brainer when it comes to makeup. Slap it on and go.
I am a fan of all nude lipsticks, whether it be drugstore or high end. But, as you all know, I am the self-proclaimed queen of the drugstore. If there is an amazing drugstore nude lipstick, you bet I’m going to find it, test it out, and report back.
I went through my collection and I picked out the top ten best drugstore nude lipsticks and swatches, and it was definitely hard to narrow it down. I made sure to include a variety of satins, mattes, and liquid lipsticks. I also wanted a variety of tones – pinky nudes, mauve nudes, and warm nudes. I think I have a great list here, if I do say so myself.
Top 10 Best Drugstore Nude Lipsticks
(Ordered from top to bottom swatches)
1. Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Nude Creme // This is a satin finish creamy lipstick with a very traditional nude shade. It’s a staple!
2. Maybelline Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes in Peach Buff // A matte nude that is extremely comfortable to wear, and pulls on the peachy-pink side. If you’re a beginner to matte lipsticks, you’ll love this formula.
3. Maybelline Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes in Beige Babe // Same formula as the one above, but more of a traditional warm nude.
4. e.l.f. Cosmetics Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick in Touch of Nude // This formula is more sheer and satin, and is perfect for those who want that barely-there nude lip. It has a bit of a shiny finish.
5. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 008 // One of my favorite drugstore lipsticks ever! This is the perfect “my lips but better” shade, and it’s a cool toned mauve-y nude.
6. Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Color in Warm Me Up // This formula is a bit glossy. I would describe this nude as more of a cocoa mauve, and it can be worn sheered out or built up.
7. Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in Nude Thrill // This liquid lipstick is definitely on the warm side and pulls a little darker than the others.
8. L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Nudist // Another warm nude liquid lipstick. This formula also stays put really well.
9. L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paints in Spicy Blush // A glossy lip paint formula that is so fun to wear. This warm blush nude is so flattering!
10. Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color in Creme Brulee // This is a beautiful liquid lipstick formula, and one of the most affordable. Dare I say, I truly believe this is a Kylie Cosmetics Koko K dupe! I’ll test it out for you and prove it (stay tuned for a later video).
