I had to share my tips on How to Rock a Nude Lip. My lips aren't naturally pigmented, so I can't wear most of the lipsticks above...unless I use these tips. If nude lipstick or gloss looks like concealer on your lips, then please watch the video below (Charlie cameo):

Thanks so much for the support! I LOVE YOU! xo


  1. I'd love to see a swatch of the Milani Nude Creme--sadly I do not yet own any Milani lippies!!

  2. Pinky nude lips are my absolute favorite lip color and only lip color that looks good on me! Great tips! :)

  3. Absolutely love it! Gosh, you're so gorgeous!


  4. Wow so many nude lipsticks! I love a good smokey eye with a nude lip, my favourite is Miners Barely Buff - cheap but the perfect tone for my skin!

  6. Great post + video! I do rock a nude lip from time to time. I'm definitely going to try the brown lip as a base strategy. You + Charlie, have a fab day! Hugs, T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  7. I totally agree to go with browns or peachy shades. That's what I have to do. Otherwise, I look so dead!!

  8. Wow, are the all yours? What a collection! Thank you for the review - I will need to look at those Revlon ones. x

  9. I usually go with browns myself - it matches my hair color and skin tone a little bit better.

  10. I am a big fan of the various Rimmel nude shades - they've always worked for me (and perfect price point).

  13. they all look lovely and tasty, although I'm not sure I could pull nude off...

  14. awesome post Elle, Ive aways wanted to try a nude lip but was never quite sure how. Thanks for the the ideas

  15. Great comprehensive list! I feel the need to print it out and go hunting at Target. :)


  16. Thanks, girl! You are awesome! I don't have much pigment in my lips either and have sort of the same skin coloring that you do, so I can't wait to try these tips.

    Charlie is the cutest! :)

  17. Nothing beats a perfect nude , I love nude all throughout the year , love that you have given us budget friendly options .

  18. Great video tutorial, and Charlie is of course always super cute!

  19. Oh great post Elle, I've always wanted to wear a nude lip but they looked weird on me, I will definitely try your tips because I own some nude lip colors that never get worn. Thanks for the tips and Charlie is too cute! :)


  20. i wear pinky nudes since my lips has dark pigmentation. love this list though and I'll check them out next time I'm in the drugstore!

  21. I love drugstore beauty finds! I'm a big fan of the Revlon Colorburst and Revlon Lip Butter lipstick lines, but haven't tried any of those colors yet. I'll definitely be trying some of these out though!


  22. Thanks for the tutorial! I have stopped trying to wear nude lipsticks for those same reasons, now I'll try again!

  23. That is quite a lineup you have Elle. I'm in love with MAC's Creme D'Nude and I don't think I could ever switch.

  24. Thanks for the great video! Nude lipstick never works on me straight out of the tube either. I always have to put a stain under or use a bit of pink gloss.

  25. Amazing! <3


  26. I've been using a lot of Mac but I enjoyed the texture of Kate Moss Rimmel when I bought a dark color recently. I'll give a nude shade a try this time.

  27. I nearly bought one of the Baby Lips the other day because I know how much you recommend them, but now that I know there's a nude one, I'll definitely have to try it! And I've heard great things about that NARS gloss. All of your picks are so pretty!

  28. I love nude lips... They are perfect for any occasion!
