The best nude lipsticks for all skin tones (including a £6 steal)

Every time you spot a Tom Ford lipstick on an influencers ‘gram, chances are it’s Bad Lieutenant. It’s a pinky-nude but with a warm rather than cool undertone, which makes it more universally flattering for different skin tones.

Lip Colour in ‘Bad Lieutenant’, £40, Tom Ford

Slay All Day Liquid Lipstick in #TBT, £5.95, Lottie London

Lottie London’s Liquid Lipsticks have the staying power of an ex you’re not quite over and the pigment of thick paint. Put it all together for just over a fiver and it hits the sweet spot. The shade #TBT is the closest we’ve found as a dupe for Pillowtalk.

Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk, £24, Charlotte Tilbury

A modern classic, this soft pink lip-liner shade was created to enhance the natural colour of lips for a fuller, pillowy pout.

Rouge Volupte Shine in ‘Chocolate in Style’, £25, YSL

A sheer, shiny-finish lip colour that looks amazing on darker skin tones. It’s not for those after a bold statement nude, it’s more of an everyday can-eat-food-with lipstick.

Powermatte Lip Pigment in Get It On, £23, NARS

Budge-proof, smudge-proof and ultra long-lasting, this liquid lipstick delivers a creamy matte nude that won’t dry out. Plus, the slim, tapered applicator means you can create a super precise pout.

Liquid Matte in Bombshell, £18, Huda Beauty

We love Huda Kattan for her flawless tutorials and beauty expertise – but we also love her for this rosy pink hue of her phenomenal liquid lipstick.

Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in S1ngle, £16, Fenty Beauty

Want lips like RiRi? Opt for this blushing pink shade of her signature lipstick – it’s pigment-packed for a punchy colour pay-off that flatters all skin tones.

Rouge Coco Shine in Boy, £31, Chanel

If you prefer your nudes on the sheer, shiny end of the spectrum, this cult favourite is utterly dreamy.

New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel in Moody Margot, £25, Marc Jacobs

Another sheer option, this suitably-packaged lipstick has a slight pink tint.

Saint Lipstick in Peachy Nude, £22, Lipstick Queen

An office favourite, this is the perfect warm nude. It’s fairly light in pigmentation, but still provides a gorgeous final colour on the lips.

Shine Lover Lipstick in Twisted Beige, £23, Lancome

Providing a finish close to a gloss, Lancome’s 212 shade is perfect if you’re looking for a shiny pink-toned colour.

Terrybly Velvet Rouge in Lady Bare, £32, By Terry

A non-drying liquid lipstick, this velvety formula smells as lovely as it looks.

La Creme Drenched Lipstick in Nude Beach, £22, TooFaced

This stunning nude is fairly light and pink-toned. It goes on matte and is ultra long-lasting. And just look at that packaging!
