Favourite Nude Lipsticks for Pale Skin

Best Nude lipsticks for Pale Skin


As a pale girl I know the struggle with nude lipstick - most lippies that are nude on medium skin tones are just a deep pink or brown on me, and when I rarely find a proper 'nude' nude I can have a tendency to look a tad dead and grey. I imagine for most skin tones there's a similar problem, but in this post I  thought I'd share the nudes I have collected over the years that work for me. For reference, I have fair skin (NW13-15 this time of year), with cool, pink undertones. The lippies I mention in this post go from palest to darkest, with a variety of finishes and brands - swatches are included at the end of the post!



MAC | Creme D'Nude

An oldie but a goodie. Creme D'Nude is the ideal slap in on and go nude to me because of its finish - as it's a cremesheen it's more sheer so I can either use one swipe for more of a hint of colour or build for a very nude lip. There isn't much staying power to this lipstick, but quick re-application is easy.



Lipstick Queen | Nude Metal

This is my favourite of favourites. The shade can only be described as a more pinky-toned nude with gold running throughout it - essentially a lighter version of Nars Orgasm blush in a lipstick. Again, a more moisturizing lipstick, my only criticism/tip is to really exfoliate your lips before applying this because (as with most metallic lipsticks), it really highlights texture.




YSL Rouge Volupte | Shade 1

This is my pink pick out of the bunch, that has a neutral beige undertone. The formula is to die for if you have dry lips as it feels like putting a lip balm on. I find that these more pink-nude tones suit me more than the more brown tones as they liven up my complexion.



Makeup Revolution | Chauffer

If you want a brown-toned matte lipstick but don't think that those sorts of colours suit your  skin - try this! It's the least expensive out of the bunch, has soild staying power and is a 'my lips but better' shade on me.




Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip | Knotty

I feel bad putting this liquid lipstick in here, as I was part of Colourpop's 2016 Christmas Collection, but in case they bring it back - Knotty is a lovely darker beige, peach nude that despite being a rather drying formula is stunning if you have pale skin. For some reason this looks paler on my lips than swatched.




NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream | London

The darkest and brownest of my picks. NYX's soft matte lip creams are affordable, comfortable and come in all the colours of the rainbow. I own colours that are lighter than this in this formula, but I feel that those colours are difficult to pull off (particularly the shade Cairo - it's not for me), London, however, is a beautifully effortless brown nude.

  3. Lipstick queen Nude Metal and Nyx London are such gorgeous color. I don't own a lot of nude lipsticks, cause you know, it's not easy to wear Nude for pale girl, but I think I should more experiment.
