best nude lipsticks

One of the most commonly asked questions I get from you guys is, “what lipstick color are you wearing?” The not-so-fun answer to that question is… a combination of four things.  Usually a lip liner, a lipstick, a chapstick and then maybe touched up with another color I find in the bottom of my purse.  I shared that in the FAQ of this site, but I still get the question often enough that I thought it would be helpful to round up my favorite colors!

Let’s get into it –

I hope this email will be helpful to some of you looking for the perfect neutral color combination!  I play with different combos until I find something that works with my skin tone.  So I do think a lot of it is finding what’s going to compliment your complexion, eye color, hair color, etc.

And my favorite chapsticks are just Aquaphor or Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick!

If you have a favorite nude or neutral lip, I’d love to hear!  Thanks so much for reading – XO –

PS – I wrote this post last night without electricity, tethering from Christian’s cell phone and using a flashlight… so I hope there are not many link errors!  I have missed having regular posts up so I really, really want to get things back on track.  Thank you for your grace! Big hugs –

    1. Traci! Oh my gosh I adore you. I recently shot so much content so this blog would be back in the swing of things so electricity or not, I was determined! So appreciate you! xo

  2. I love a good lip color and I always admire women with perfect lip color on. I seem to struggle with getting the right color for me so this post is really helpful. I know it’s a matter of preference but it always help to have a few starting colors. I have not heard of Palmers swivel sticks, I must check out! Lip balm junkie over here. I hope your electricity is back on and on my end, your links are all good!

  3. Thanks for this. I am a bit of a lipstick junkie & consistently look to influencers to give me an idea on colors. I myself really like Mac’a “Velvet Teddy” & Clinique’s Pop line “Blushing Pop”. Both are Mattes, which is my preference for a lipstick.
    As far as a basic gloss, I have really enjoyed Clarins Natural Lip Perfector in “Rosewood Shimmer”.
