The 5 nude lipsticks everyone from Kate Middleton to Kylie Jenner love
You can be both sexy and elegant with your pink lipstick.
There’s little not to love about a nude lip. As much as we love and appreciate a bold red lip moment, there’s something to be said about the versatility of a nude lipstick. Take Kate Middleton and Kylie Jenner, two celebrities whose personal styles are miles apart but both share a love for a nude lip pencil. Which is to say a good nude lipstick can transcend both style and age, letting the wearer make it her own.
But with so many nude lipsticks out there, and trust us, not all nudes are created equal, it can be hard to know where to even start on finding the perfect nude shade. Which is why we turned to the masters and did some digging to find out the exact nude hues that these two nude lipstick aficionados love. So no matter what your celebrity preference, one of these universal nudes will be for you.
(1)Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 in love with Olivia
In our book, makeup legend Charlotte Tilbury truly can do no wrong, and this lipstick is no exception. Named after Olivia Palermo, this shade has a light-coral hue and a satin sheen. Enriched with antioxidant Lipstick Tree extract for a softening effect, this product glides on smoothly and is guaranteed to last all day.
(2)Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo Lip Crayon
Easy to apply with its crayon shape, this Hourglass lipstick is a must-have for achieving a barely-there makeup look. It has a feminine pinky-nude hue that will give your lips a pretty wash of colour, whilst the creamy formula is packed with Lanolin and Seed Oil for an instant hit of moisture.
(3)Saint Laurent YSL Rouge Volupte Shine
YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks are a cult classic and for good reason too. A little pricey, but trust us, worth it, this peppy-pink nude will go with everything and you’ll reach for it time and time again. Plus, how chic is the packaging?
(4)KYLIE COSMETICS Crème Lipstick in Butterscotch
With her makeup brand Kylie Cosmetics worth an estimated US$900 million, the youngest Jenner has proved herself to be a modern-day #bossbabe. And we have to admit that despite all the hype, her products don’t disappoint. With a flattering soft peach hue and a velvety-matte finish, this Crème Lipstick in Butterscotch is the perfect every day nude.
(5)M.A.C Matte Lipstick Whirl
An OG Kardashian-Jenner favourite, this deep-toned beige serves up that super-pigmented, 90s-esque nude lip. The matte finish is a true matte, no trace of sheen or shine here, while the colour will work well on many skin tones.
