My Top 5 Drugstore Nude Lip Colours

I love a nude lip. I very rarely wear a bright/dark lip, hence I have a good variety of nude lipsticks/glosses.  This post will show you my 5 favourites and what makes them all different but great.






1. Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick
Shade - 03
Price - £5.49

This was one of my first nude lipsticks i ever tried, and I still love it. It's a brown toned nude, matte finish. (looks like it has a sheen in the picture, but I had a little bit of lip balm underneath). This is my go to when I'm wearing a dark/dramatic smokey eye. I would say it suits light to medium-dark skin tones. Feels comfortable on the lips and is quite creamy. Best applied to (non cracked) lips. Nice matte black packaging.



2. Milani Colour Statement Lipstick
Shade - Nude Creme
Price - £5

I recently found this lipstick at Cocktail Cosmetics Birmingham and I'm so happy I picked it up! It's a slightly darker nude, and more pink toned.  A good one for a 'my lips but better' colour. It's a matte finish, but is very creamy and soft on the lips. It nourishes the lips but still provides a full coverage, even for a nude. Perfect for day to day or for a little colour with a smokey eye that won't clash. I love the gold packaging, which gives it a more luxurious feeling.
Suitable for all skin tones.



3. Topshop Lip Bullet
Shade - Crave
Price - £8

I can't wait to try more of these lip bullets. This is more of a light peachy nude, perfect for a muted but not washed out lip. Again, it's a matte finish but creamy texture. I really like the packaging, I feel like it's one that you can chuck in your bag and it will last. Good coverage, best applied to moisturised lips. My first Topshop product did not disappoint. Suitable for light to medium skin tones.




4. Gerard Cosmetics Jaclyn Hill Collection Lipstick
Shade - Buttercup
Price - £12.50

I've already posted a full review on this lipstick, but I'll give you a summary. This is the perfect nude pink lipstick. Creamy and luxurious whilst providing a good coverage. Can be worn day or night, and suitable for all skin tones.



5. Models Own HyperLips Lipgloss
Shade - Naturally Nude
Price - £4.99

This is a new one for me, from the new HyperLips range. It definitely met my expectations and I can't wait to try other colours. Its a light neutral nude, that adds a good gloss to the lips. It is quite thick in texture and a bit sticky, which means it will last a long time. I would wear it when my hair is up though. Suitable for all skin tones.
