Just like a little black dress or a vintage pearl necklace, everyone needs a signature nude lip gloss in their beauty arsenal. Not only are they great for those no-makeup-days, but they are timeless and always look flatteringno matter what the occasion is. Little wonder, Kim K always rocks a wet, nude lip whenever she steps out. Plus, the newer lighter-than-air formulations won’t stick to your hair or look goopy. Like ever! So, what you waiting for?

Just like its name, the rich buttery formula feels moisturizing on lips, not at all heavy or sticky. It’s also liquid-like and has a wet look to it, making your lips look downright lusciousperfect for those lazy poolside parties. The best part though? It tastes as sweet as a sugary cookie. We are digging the shade ‘Madeleine’ that complements all Indian skin tones.
Who says nude hues are only meant for the day? Swipe on L'Oreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss in Disco Ball that acts as a lipstick-gloss hybrid; you get the opaque look of your favorite long-wearing lipstick, but with the high-shine finish of a gloss. Infused with hyaluronic acid, this pigment-packed shine-giver was made to be worn all night long.
The ‘Natural Beige’ shade from the Kiko Milano 3D Hydra Lipgloss range is what you need for an elegant Sunday brunch. The hue goes on completely opaque yes, you read that correctly and the unique, spongy wand makes it easier to paint on the formula in dainty, makeup-artist-like strokes. Brownie points for the non-comedogenic and paraben-free formulation.
Want a luxuriant, plump pout a la the Kardashians? Makeup Revolution's Retro Luxe Kit gives you extra bang for your buck with a gloss and lip liner combo to help draw out your pucker and have it looking juicier and defined. Long-lasting, super pigmented and comfortable on the lips, Honour is the perfect nude for most skin types - making it a no-brainer cart addition.
Seeking a pinkish nude hue? Try the ‘Rose Shine’ with cool pink undertones that looks good on everyone. The formula feels just as luxurious as it looks in the tube, while the smooth gliding consistency and shiny pigments (not blinding) makes it a keeper. For a totally opaque finish, swipe this over your favourite lipstick to look like a glam goddess.
The ‘Gleam’ from L.A Girl Lip Paint glazed is a delicious chai latte hue that will leave you wanting more. It weighs almost nothing on your lips, gives a hydration boost (Re: Vitamin E) and imparts a pretty stain after fading (if it does); the perfect, go-to gloss for just about any and every occasion, we think..
With the high-impact shine of a gloss and the nourishing benefits of a balm, the PAC Lip Gloss is in a league of its own. The ground-breaking formula, which contains a blend of Vitamin E and emollient ingredients hydrates and protects your lips from the daily wear and tear, while still looking like a gloss fit for a queen. We recommend the hue ‘07’ that is our beauty version of spiced gingerbread. Yum!
We have a difficult time deciding what we love most about this line of lip glosses: the highly nourishing formula (infused with Vit-E & comforting oils), the light-weight texture, the staying power or the shade ‘brown girl’ which is a beautiful warm nude shade with peachy undertones. Lucky for us, we can have it all!
