The lip colour shade every woman should own
It literally suits everyone

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 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.
Revlon Super Lustrous™ Glass Shine Lipstick in Beaming Strawberry
Living in search of a lightweight lippy that offers the gleam of a gloss sans stickiness? So were we, before we found this formula. A buttery blend that coats your pout with a wash of the perfect pinky-nude colour, it also hydrates and nourishes like a balm as it works; it's truly the ideal low-maintenance lip colour through and through.
NARS Lip Gloss in Belize
You can’t go wrong with a gloss, and the shade of Belize paired with the shiny finish makes for an excellent everyday lip colour. Also, it’s a great pink nude to balance out a smoky eye!
Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstick in On The Mauve
As On The Mauve is a deeper pinky-nude, it’ll work best for those with olive, tanned and dark skin tones. The formula of it will glide on like a dream, and we expect you’ll be very pleased with the colour payoff.
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in Mauve Bliss
Offering pigmented colour, long-lasting (and comfortable) wear, and a covetable soft matte finish, this hue is another mauve-based nude that looks great on any occasion and works on an array of different skin tones.
CHANEL Rouge Coco Stylo Complete Care Lipshine in Rose Eclatant
Perfect for more of a subtle wash of colour, this hydrating lipstick from CHANEL is for those on the hunt for a lippie they can apply, sans mirror.
Tom Ford Lip Color Satin Matte in Preternatural
Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème in Slow Burn
Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Rouge Pur Couture
Rose Carnation will give your lips a natural hint of colour that can be built between medium and full coverage, with a gorgeous satin finish.
