And the Best Nude Lipsticks On the Planet Are...

Let’s get nude, shall we?

By Courtney Thompson

File this under “Things Every Woman Should Own.” A nude lipstick is as basic a must-have as fancy lingerie, a beautiful fragrance or a killer pair of gigantic black sunglasses. Literally every woman needs one because it’s the antidote to a va-va-voom red—a way to look polished and chic but natural and understated at the same time. While nudes used to be reserved for daytime looks, Kim Kardashian and a slew of other celebs have proven that a face full of monochromatic makeup can work just as well for evening.

So we took it upon ourselves to dig through the troves of nude lipsticks, glosses, pencils and crayons out there to discern which ones really are the best of the best. And we’ve listed them for you below. Starting at just six bucks, and in a variety of shades (ranging from barely there to blushy blush), you’ll surely find the right fit for your complexion.
