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 flattering—no 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?
From beige, peachy to true nudes, scroll down below for a lowdown on all our favourites this season!
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 luscious—perfect 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 Pro Matte Gloss in ‘Bare Attraction’ that acts as a lipstick-gloss hybrid; you get the high velvet matte impact of your favorite long-wearing lipstick, but without the dry-out. With a 24-hour stay claim, this lush 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? Nykaa Gloss it Up! High Shine Lip Gloss gives you extra bang for your buck with a new light-magnifying technology that gives you absolute color purity with a shine that is sure to steal the spotlight . Long-lasting, feather-proof and comfortable on the lips, Honey Boo 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.
This one is special! Basically, your quick ticket to taking any matte colour to metallic and create lustrous 3-dimensional lip looks. Enriched with Marula & Chamomile, intense hydration makes your lips look instantly plumper. Then there's the the unique liquid to powder formula that blends like a dream to deliver a sophisticated chrome shimmer. A swipe of such an exquisite nude and there's hardly anything stopping you from becoming its namesake.
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!
