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.
M.A.C Cosmetics Lustreglass Lipstick in 'Hug Me'
No one does an iconic pinky nude quite like M.A.C. And while we’ll always have a soft spot for the classic ‘Honeylove’, the new nude shade range extension in the sheer, sheeny lustreglass collection has captured hearts. With a raspberry seed and organic extra-virgin olive oil-infused formula to boot, the brand new bullets show the makeup OGs haven’t lost their touch. We personally love the universally flattering shade ‘Hug Me’ for imbuing lips with a plush, hydrating swathe of fleshy nude long-wearing lip colour.
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!
Tom Ford Lip Color Satin Matte in Preternatural
Not everyone is a fan of the velvet matte lip look that’s currently trending, and that’s where this satin lipstick has a chance to (semi-)shine (no pun intended). The pigmented formula will give you a punchy, natural lip look in seconds, while leaving your lips feeling soft and comfortable.
