8 Perfect Nude Lipsticks Recommended by Real Women


A few weeks ago on The Prowl, I asked users for their favorite nude lipsticks. I've been looking for a great neutral lip color and haven't yet happened upon one that I love.

Well, I got some great advice from many women I trust, and I now feel compelled to share these recommendations with you!

For example, Stephanie Precourt, the gorgeous blogger behind Adventures in Babywearing, recommends this Dior Addict Lip Glow. "This moisturizes and enhances your natural lip color, giving you the perfect shade," she wrote. "Well worth the price! But wait! There's more!


M.A.C. Modesty LipstickMaressa Brown Levy is partial to M.A.C. lipstick in Modesty. It's a pretty color, don't you think? You can read a review of it here.


Clinique Creamy NudeCynthia Dermody likes Creamy Nude Long Last Lipstick by Clinique (which sounds a little dirty to me!). Clinique is always good for a sheer, less makeup-y look.


Drugstore.comAmanda G. calls Revlon Pearl Lipstick in Caramel Glace "my all-time fave." My budget loves this particular lipstick as well.


Drugstore.comMeanwhile, Erica Manney reports that Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait is on her wish list. "It looks pink here," she writes, "but in person is nice and neutral -- with just a bit of blush." The name just makes me feel hungry.


NordstromIf you can swing the cost, you can never go wrong with Chanel Lipstick. CafeMom producer Randy Roth likes Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Canotier.


TargetThe wildly beloved Linda Sharps is all about Revlon Just Bitten Lip Balm Stain in Honey. "Motto for this lip stain: 'Your Lips, But Better,'" she writes. I love it.


Neiman Marcus

Our most extravagant recommendation comes from Manhattan Socialite Holly Ellis, who swears by Tom Ford Lip Color in Blush Nude. It's only FORTY-NINE DOLLARS.

I'm now armed with enough information now to make a fairly confident buying decision, but I'd love to hear your thoughts as well. Do you have a perfect nude lip color you'd like to share?
