Top 5 Nudes - The Nude Lipsticks You NEED!

There is almost nothing we love more than a nude lip. It is the perfect pairing with a sexy smokey eye or even a bold and bright creative cut crease, it will go with anything and everything! But with so many nudes on the market, where do you even begin?

Our brand ambassador Bella is here to help, we sent her 5 must-have nudes to swatch and review so the hard work is done for you! Scroll down to shop our shortlist, see exactly how they look on and read Bella's thoughts on each.

1. Winky Lux Matte Pill - Corallo

Cult beauty brand Winky Lux, (their iconic flower balm lipsticks with real flowers are dreamy!), promises to deliver the staying power and matte finish of a liquid lipstick in regular lipstick form with their matte pill. 

Bella's thoughts - 

"I love the formula, it is so creamy, not like a liquid lipstick at all! This shade is more of a peachy nude which in my opinion would really suit deeper skin tones. It kept my lips moisturised, giving off more of a creamy finish than a matte one. The packaging is so cute, not like a standard lipstick, it is small, compact and rounded, just like a little pill. Will fit perfectly in your handbag on a night out!"

2. Milani Colour Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick - Innocence 

Milani's Colour Statement Moisture Matte Lipsticks are 100% vegan (LOVE!), promise to be non-drying and are infused with grape seed extract imported from Italy, so fancy!

Bella's thoughts - 

"This lipstick is completely matte as promised but as it feels so creamy and comfortable to wear, you almost forget you are wearing a matte lipstick! It's not drying at all and instead has a unique texture which feels like velvet. Colour wise this lipstick has more pinky undertones which makes it the ultimate classic nude suiting most skin tones."

3. Zoeva Lip Crayon  - Nude Hero

Unlike the other nude lipsticks, Zoeva's Lip Crayon says it will not only moisturise but also plump your lips! The pencil applicator makes it super easy for quick application on the go.

Bella's thoughts - 

"This nude lip crayon reminds me of a gloss in crayon form rather than a lipstick. It is super moisturising which is always good, leaving you with a glossy finish but without the stickiness. The shade Nude Hero is quite pale in colour but I think it would suit every skin tone as it is quite sheer allowing the colour of your natural lip to also come through. I would wear this either on it's own or on top of another lipstick as it really does make your lips look luscious and plump!"

4. Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte - Aphrodite
(Shop at Beauty Bay here for £11)

Gerard Cosmetics' Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks are a favourite among makeup artists and enthusiasts. Described as a lip stain rather than a liquid lipstick, it also promises to moisturise and hydrate while still giving you that sought after matte finish. 

Bella's thoughts - 

"This liquid lipstick is extremely pigmented that you really don't need to apply more than one coat. Considering it is a liquid lipstick, it is a really good formula and isn't too drying thanks to it's moisturising qualities. I would say it is more of an orange even though it is described as a peachy nude and it would be so perfect again for deeper skin tones."

5. Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick - I'm Nude

Jeffree Star prides himself on his products being Vegan friendly and this liquid lipstick is no different, along with the added benefit of having no parabens or gluten. The Velour Liquid Lipsticks promise to 'stay all day' long. 

Bella's thoughts - 

"This is the best formula I have ever tried for a liquid lipstick, it isn't sticky, hardly drying at all and just as promised, it lasted me all day. The lipstick is very pigmented helping me achieve the look super quick. 
As opposed to a lot of the other nudes, this one is very pale and would be perfect for lighter skin tones. I like to wear mine paired with a darker lip liner for a more striking, defined nude lip."
