I'm looking for a 'nude' lipstick...

LifeInAHamsterWheel · 03/10/2022 10:03

I want a lipstick, but a nice creamy/satin one, not matte or anything described as 'long wearing' as I have dry lips.

Tomorrow I'll be in a big posh department store with every brand imaginable! I usually shop online and don't have a dept. store near me so this is a once-off for me and I thought it would be an ideal time to get a new lipstick as it's not the sort of thing you can buy online.

So, hit me with your recommendations please. Of course I'll look at CT Pillowtalk, but interested to hear if there are others that might work. Thank you Smile

I was going to recommend glossier ultralip in Villa, the only lipstick I've ever loved! It's a perfect nude for me (pale, pink undertones, awkward in most lipsticks!)

Sadly I don't think they sell in department stores, but worth bearing in mind for the future if you don't find anything perfect tomorrow.

The Charlotte tilbury KISSING range is good and this is a lovely shade - not too drying at all

Pillow talk I tend to find quite matte and drying on already dry lips

I keep getting spammed by these Givenchy ones when I'm on Facebook. I haven't tried but they look nice...

How much are you willing to spend? ByTerry do a few lovely ones, so do Clé de Peau - not drying at all!

I think pillowtalk makes most people look like they are dead.

I recently found that my perfect nude shade is Nars Dolce Vita ... I wouldn't have guessed that from a swatch but it works better for me than Pillow Talk

Yes I'm not sure that PillowTalk will suit me, but I'm glad that I'll be able to see it in person to be sure. I do like the look of Penelope Pink! And there are other good suggestions there too, so thank you all Smile I've not set myself a budget and I'm definitely not leaving without a lipstick!! But I will make sure that the colour and texture are what I want.

CT pillow talk makes me look like a corpse just doesn't suit my colouring at all.

I'm dark hair, blue eyes fair complexion with fairly neutral undertones. My favourite nudes are MAC blankety or babetown.

I bought MAC Cream In My Coffee after Dominic Skinner a la Glow Up said it was the nude everyone should have in their handbag. I'm very easily led Grin

My fave lipsticks are Bobbi brown - lovely creamy consistency, which I don't find drying at all.

L’Oréal colour riche beige a nu (shade 630) is nice, it’s not drying at all as it’s satin. Plus it makes a nice change from my usual reds and pinks. It’s about £9 too.

NARS Dolce Vita or try Bobbi Brown. There have a lovely range.

also, Chanel have just brought out a range of nudes.

Another vote for Chanel. Love the texture of their lipsticks and an assistant was recently great at finding a nude that works on me as I'm quite dark/cool. Mademoiselle is my favourite of theirs.

MAC.

Lovely choice of nudes and different finishes. Last ages and are the only range I finish a product and buy more.

L'Oreal in gold packaging (colour rich is the name, I think) in 235 Nude. It's more pink nude, I love it. Very creamy and gives satin finish.

I think we posted about the same product, just different colour. I need to check out 630 then.

Another vote for L'oreal Beige a Nu. I just bought it at the weekend and its lovely. Not drying at all.

I'm a big fan of nars dolce vita too. I wouldn't say it's a nude on me though. Please look at Chantacaille lipsticks, particularly the 'lip chic' ones, they come out different than they look in the stick but they are so natural and flattering. Pricy but they are so good they are worth it.

I’m another one that looks dreadful in Pillow Talk, but VeryVictoria is a much better nude for my (ghost like) complexion. CT seems to have a very clear approach to colour, but plenty of options within that.
