Pinky-nude is the chic lip colour shade every woman should own
Not too much but just enough

If there’s one thing every woman should have in her beauty kit, it’s a shade of lipstick that gives her the perfect natural lip look.
And while you may think a straight beige-nude is your safest bet, the best nude lipstick may actually be one that has some subtle pink and mauve tones to it.
That’s right, when it comes to picking an everyday, low-key lip colour that’ll always look a treat, a pinky-nude is where it’s at (hey, if it’s a firm favourite for Meghan Markle, you know it must be a good bet).
Here are our top lipstick picks in the pinky-nude department...
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Kidman's Kiss
Get ready to meet the ultimate ‘your lips but better’ finish; it's a petal-pink rosy hue that works on a surprisingly wide array of skin tones (just check the site for pictorial proof). As for the formula, you can expect a matte slick of colour that won't dry lips out in the slightest.
$49 at Charlotte Tilbury
Revlon Super Lustrous™ Glass Shine Lipstick in Beaming Strawberry
Dior Addict Lipstick Stellar Shine
‘Stellar shine’ isn’t in the name for nothing; this lippy is loaded with oils and waxes to make sure your pout is soft, supple, silky smooth and gloriously glossy. It also features aloe vera to keep your chic pinky-nude colour fresh for hours on end.
$59 at Sephora
Tarte Sea Color Splash Lipstick in Salt Lyfe
A shade that sits closer toward the ‘mauve’ end of the pinky-nude spectrum, it’s a moisture-rich full coverage lipstick that packs as much pigment as it does hydration (and it packs a whole lot of hydration). The cool-toned colour is also great for making a faux glow pop, FYI.
$32 at Sephora
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in Mauve Bliss
Tom Ford Lip Color Satin Matte in Preternatural
Not everyone is a fan of the velvet matte lip trend, and that’s where this satin lipstick has a chance to (semi) shine (pun intended). The pigmented formula will give you a punchy, natural lip look in seconds, while leaving your lips feeling soft, moist and happy.
$72 at David Jones
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Rouge Pur Couture in Nude Fougueux
This luxurious satin-finish lipstick will give your lips a natural hint of colour that can be built from sheer to full coverage depending on the amount you swipe on. We'll bet you'll be going in for a few coats, too; it feels damn silky going on.
