We at Cosmo.ph love lippies as much as you do. We're all for how they can instantly pull your look together and give you that extra boost of confidence when you feel so ~*blah*~. We totally get the obsession.
That's why we've tested 200 lipsticks, glosses, stains, balms, tints, and scrubs (hey, someone's gotta do it!), before narrowing down our favorites for the first-ever Cosmo.ph Lippie Awards! Check out our top picks for the Best Nudes:
Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauvey
This particular lippie shade is possibly one of the best-kept secrets at the drugstore. It’s a gorgeous light dusty pink nude lippie with a soft matte finish that looks so stunning on different skin tones. It’s lightweight, easy to work with, and practical for daily use. This one’s a true winner!
Inglot Freedom System Lipstick Matte in 505
If you’re looking for a no-fuss true nude, then this is what you need. It comes in a little pan that you can put in your makeup palettes. It looks gorgeous when worn alone, especially when paired with a bold eye. Oh, and did we mention that it’s AMAZING at neutralizing lip colors that are a little too bright for your liking?
Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Lacey Mauve
This gorgeous brown-based pink is THE perfect pinky-nude for morenas. It adds just the right punch of pink on your lips without being too much. It’s ultra-moisturizing, too!
Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Beige Pop
A creamy nude pink color, this is honestly one of the best MLBB—My Lips But Better—shades we tested. If you’re into pale pink lippies, consider this as your next kikay kit staple.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Exciting
This lippie is a luxurious peachy-nude color that looks SO fresh on various skin tones. The texture is so buttery that even girls with the driest lips will enjoy it. It’s moisturizing, long-lasting, and doesn’t settle into the fine lines on your lips. It’s one of those colors that you should swipe on for days when you’re going for "ganda lang."
Best Liquid Lipsticks
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Seduction
This classic nude shade blew us away—it looked good on everyone. The texture is mousse-like and dries up to a soft, velvety finish, so your lips won’t look or feel dry at all.
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color in Back in Vogue
This one’s a gorgeous creamy peachy-nude color that applies like a dream. The pointed tip of the applicator makes it easy to line your lips first before filling them in. It dries up to a true matte finish and stays on for HOURS on end. You literally have to use a makeup a remover to get it off, so you don’t need to worry about midday touchups!
Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Air Kiss
Here’s a light pink lip gloss with just the right amount of shimmer for daily use. Layering it on top of a matte lip gives you added shine and dimension, while wearing it alone makes your lips look plump and juicy. It doesn’t feel tacky on lips and is absolutely long-lasting.
BYS Lip Colour Balm in Seduction
Get hydrated lips with this terracotta-colored lip balm that adds the prettiest color on your puckers. It has just the right amount of shimmer, so it’s totally apt to wear for work or school.
Best Lip Liner
The Body Shop Lip Definer in Clover Pink
This one has a deep dusty rose color that looks pretty against various skin tones. Unlike other lip pencils, this one is smooth and doesn’t tug on your lips during application. Wear it alone or under your favorite nude lippies—it will look good either way!
