Best Nude Lipstick
What is the best nude lipstick?
Finding your best nude lipstick can be harder than it sounds. The oh-so popular promise of that one-shade-fits-all best nude lipstick color never lives up to its “best neutral lipstick” moniker due to women coming from all sides of the skin tone spectrum. Too dark on fair skin, and you look like you’re trying to make brown, nude color lipstick happen (and not in a cool-girl ’90s way). Too light on darker complexions, like a pale nude pink lipstick, and lips can look ghostly or ashy.
To help you select the perfect nude lip for your skin tone, explore Armani’s “Best Nude Lip Color” guide. Below, we navigate the understandably overwhelming worlds of Armani’s beige, brown, and nude pink lipstick to help you get it just right.
And as lipstick lovers, we admire how the finish of a perfect nude lip has the ability to showcase one’s personality and mood. That’s why we’ve also gone one step further and broken down our best nude lipstick picks based on Armani’s signature textures and formulas — think our best nude matte lipstick, best nude liquid lipstick, best glossy nude lip color, and more! Bonus: learn the power of a neutral lip pencil for a truly perfect nude lip.
Best Nude Lipstick | Armani’s Best Nude Matte Lipstick:
Nude matte lipstick is an ageless look. Our Rouge D’Armani Matte Lipstick formula delivers seductive, creamy matte color with non-drying, extra-comfortable, and weightless wear. Rouge D’Armani Matte - #500 Fatale is a go-to blush-toned nude pink lipstick that plays up the natural pink-y hues in fair skin beautifully. For the best nude lipstick for medium complexions, reach for Rouge D’Armani Matte - #102 Androgino, a romantic antique rose that will compliment warmer olive and caramel undertones. When selecting a best neutral lipstick for dark skin, keep this in mind: Your perfect nude lip is definitely not going to read nude in the tube. Our Rouge D’Armani Matte - #103 Downtown is a rich, rose-brown nude lip color that won’t appear flat or vanish on darker complexions.
Best Nude Lipstick | Armani’s Best Satin-Finish Nude Color Lipstick:
Yearning for the perfect middle ground between shiny and matte? Our Rouge D’Armani Lipstick formula delivers an ultra-covetable satin finish. Rouge D’Armani - #103 Nuda saturates lips with dusty, pink-beige color — ideal for fain skin. Rouge D’Armani - #102 Silenzio is a warmer nude pink lipstick that we recommend for medium skin tones. For women with darker complexions, Rouge D’Armani - #101 Sand is a richer, brown-based nude color lipstick.
Best Nude Lipstick | Armani’s Best High-Shine Nude Color Lipstick:
Fans of a glossy effect but creamy lipstick feel are advised to pay attention to our Ecstasy Shine Lipstick. When it comes to our best neutral lipstick shades in this formula, we recommend swiping on Ecstasy Shine - #103 Androgino if you have fair skin, Ecstasy Shine - #100 Smile for medium complexions, and Ecstasy Shine - #101 Nuda for deeper skin tones.
Best Nude Lipstick | Armani’s Best Nude Liquid Lipstick:
Now ubiquitous, matte nude lip color achieved by liquid lipstick just makes sense: Unlike gloss or sheeny lipsticks, flat, liquid pigments stay put the longest–second only to lip stain–which means no transferring, fading or feathering. Meet our best nude liquid lipstick formulas, Armani’s Lip Maestro and Lip Magnet. Opting for the best nude lipstick shade in Lip Maestro? Get your hands on Lip Maestro - #202 Dolci, a warm, golden brown perfect for richer complexions. For a softer nude matte lipstick ideal for fair skin, try out Lip Maestro - #500 Blush, a medium nude pink lipstick with subtle warm undertones and a hint of mauve.
What about a go-to nude matte lipstick shade in our other best nude liquid lipstick formula, Lip Magnet? Lip Magnet - #504 Nuda’s coral pink is sure to flatter lighter skin and Lip Magnet - #511 Fatale’s warm, rich undertones won’t wash out darker complexions.
Best Nude Lipstick | Armani’s Best Ultra-Glossy Nude Lip Color:
Our Ecstasy Lacquer - #502 Boudoir is a medium, bright pink with a healthy helping of gold shimmer that’s sure to flatter paler complexions. For women with medium to darker skin, our Ecstasy Lacquer - #503 Fatale — a brown, nude pink lipstick with ultra-glossy shimmer — is calling your name.
Best Nude Lipstick | Armani’s Best Neutral Lip Pencil:
For a truly flawless and perfect nude lip, using a neutral lip pencil before your lipstick application is recommended. For a lot of women, it’s not unusual for the outer edges of lips to be a bit darker, or the top lip to appear darker than the bottom one. To even out color, filling in your lip line or entire mouth with a nude, neutral lip pencil can help cancel out any discoloration before applying your go-to best neutral lipstick shade.
