We might love our bright, poppy lipsticks, but there are always days when we just can’t do without a more subtle shade (while still looking pretty as a picture, of course!). That’s where nude lipsticks come in. Contrary to what many believe, nude lipsticks don’t mean a skin-coloured shade - that would just look as scary as wearing concealer on your lips (please don’t!). Nude lipsticks are simply natural tones or creamy neutrals that are perfect to pair with dramatic smokey eyes. We help you get onto the nude spectrum with our favorite nude lipstick brands for every budget.
A caramel is one of those nude lipsticks that suit just about any skin tone. We absolutely love how creamy it is. Definitely one of our top picks when you want to channel the no makeup, makeup look .
