Nude Lipsticks To Suit You


Finding a nude lipstick that flatters your skin, doesn’t dry out your lips and feels good to wear is no mean feat. Believe us, we know. Our expert team have shared their personal favourites and we’re sure you’ll love them as much as we do.



Lipstick Queen Nothing But The Nudes in The Whole Truth

Best For: A Universally Flattering Colour

My colouring does not lend itself to a taupe-coloured nude lipstick at all, so this shade is perfect for me. It has a slight sheen to it which keeps  it from looking flat and the pink undertone gives my lips a real lift. – Niamh Butler, Head of Education


Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Bond Girl

Best For: A Non-Drying Matte Finish

This is without a doubt, my favourite lipstick by far. The texture is creamy and it offers a matte finish without drying out the lips. The shade is slightly deeper and less pink than their much-loved Pillow Talk. I am half Italian, so this colour works well against my olive complexion. I often pair it with the Lip Lustre in Seduction for a glossier look in the evening. – Kate Saunders, Colour and Haircare Buyer



Hourglass Nude Lip Stylo in 1 Nude

Best For: Hydrating Dry Lips

I need my lipstick to feel as hydrating as my lip balm and to be super easy to wear. I can apply with gorgeous nude without a mirror and often dab it straight on. I love how moisturising it feels on my very dry lips. My top tip is to go for a nude with a tiny bit of pink to really make your lips pop. – Liz Hambleton, Head Of Beauty Editorial & Creative Content


Chantecaille Lip Veil in Honeypot

Best For: Long-Lasting Wear

This lipstick is enriched with baobab oil which makes it gentle on the lips and really moisturising. I love the deep rose shade and how it stays put for the whole day. I always keep this in my handbag as it is versatile enough to wear both in the office and for evenings out. – Jini Sanassy, Head of PR

Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm in Pink Grapefruit

Best For: Boosting Volume

The creamy, shea butter-based formula of this lipstick/lip balm hybrid means it literally glides on to the lips. The texture is smooth, and it also plumps and hydrates at the same time. I wear this shade with a soft smoky eye and fresh skin – it’s the perfect soft pink. – Leyla Rudolf, Acting Editorial and Copy Manager
