Color Range of Nude Lipsticks

You may think that the color of nude lipstick is, well, nude. But nude lipsticks can be in taupe, pink, coral, rose, or plum shades. Really, it all depends on your complexion, skin tone, and natural lip color.

According to industry experts, there could be up to 30-or-so shades that could fit into the “nude” category for each person, which is why they suggest that makeup enthusiasts should have a variety of shade options readily available in their personal makeup bag to choose from.

And don’t forget to consider the color of your own lips, as it could make a difference on whether you should go with a lighter pink nude or a darker-brownish nude shade.

Why Nude Lipsticks Have Been So Popular

  • Natural and elegant
  • Look good with every lip shapes
  • Match any outfits and occasions

Nude lipstick is the definition of versatility. Not only is it easy to wear thanks to its light tone and close resemblance to your natural complexion, but it also works on every lip shape.

They’re also great for any outfit, whether you’re on your way to an important meeting at the office, a night out, or to a picnic in the park with friends.
