    Well I wonder, what the word “nude” means? Is is it the your lips but better color or just a hint of color or really light like a concealer or beige or soft pink or whatever?

    In my personal definition nude means just a little bit color, like MACs Pleasureseeker and N3.

  20. lala

  21. Courtney

    Usually, my nude lip is either 3N or Hue with a teeny bit of this Milani light pink sparkly sheer lipgloss on top – just a little kick to give it some dimension.

  29. SnickerDoodle

    i’m obsessed with nude lips! it seems like every lip product i buy is some sort of nude, i have to FORCE myself to go looking for a coral gloss, etc. My all time fave nude lip product is NARS lipgloss in Striptease. It’s so gorgeous..their website describes it as a ‘candlelight nude’. I love that. It’s my HG gloss for sure. I also really love Rimmel lipstick in Birthday Suit for a brown-y nude.

  30. Erin/slipnslide

    Snickerdoodle, lately I’m the same way! I keep trying to look for a red and getting nudes instead.

    4N is totally my HG “what my lips would look like if they were naturally perfect”…
    I’m going to go get Myth with my next Back2MAC, I love it!

  31. Erin/slipnslide

    I use Beaux over a nude to make it a little more glam.
    I also have been using Painterly and then gloss, for a very subdued “lip erased” look.

  32. Lan

    Revlon Lip Glide in Glistening Sand

    They don’t offer it anymore unfortunately but I’ve had mine for a few years and I always get a lot of compliments. Revlon made a new brand though called Sheer Lip Glide. They don’t have the same colors as the regular lip glide but the new ones aren’t that bad either.

  33. Lisa

    I use MAC Not So Innocent Fafi lipstick or MAC Delish lipstick. Haha not exactly “nude” per-say, but those two colours are the closest I can get to nude lips without looking washed out!

  34. Angie Smith

    My new fave is Female Trouble by NARS =) perfect pinky nude!

  35. pquanda

    Nude-nude – Whirl + 1n
    Gold nude – sandy B
    pink nude – buoy o buoy

  36. Julia.

    I use Naked to The Core for a nude-nude… Or for a pinky-nude, probably Ahoy There!

  37. Ruth

    My lips are really pigmented so a nude look for me is one coat of oyster girl lipglass.

  38. Mine is MAC Blanketty (Amplified Cream)…. it is creamy, the perfect shade of nude/beige for me without being too pale.

  39. Macaddict

    I have been using Nude to the Core for the last month and love it!!! Gorgeous natural color plus the texture is smooth and rich (mostly because of the vitamin E/conditioner in the middle) and, if I want to spice it up, I add Jampacked l/g on top!

  40. MAC satin lipcolor in SISS, then for a glossy nude lip, SISS topped with MAC lustreglass in Sinnamon. YES!

  41. cloudburst

    I’m obsessed with nude coloured lipstick/gloss as well – I have very red lips so it’s always a challenge to find something that will make my lips look more “beige”. Off the top of my head Bobbi Brown Lip Sheer in Beige.

  42. Jen

    Mac’s Siss l/s with Instant gold or nice buzz over top.

  43. 3N + Baby Sparks dazzleglass
    Not So Innocent + Suger Trance
    Style it Up + Suger Trance
    Flattering + Trifle

    Lazy Nude:
    Strobe Blossom + Pretty Plush
    Any tendertone

  44. claudine

    MAC’s Hue Lipstick

  45. Caroline

    I’m lighter than NC15 and I do nude lips every day my fav is

    true nude- Myth and Loreal bubblegum color juice

    pink nude- myth and hue l/s with underage l/g

    coral nude- myth and sock hop l/g

    SO mad I missed out on 3n, melrose mood, and fleshpot!

  46. Jazzi

    currently its passion fruit pop or grapefruit blast but i really want to find a color that will make my bottom lip look brown
