Peep Show: The Pinky-Nude Lipstick Review


Nude lipstick has a hot sister. We found six pink-toned shades that are the perfect hybrid of nude and red. Check it out and find the pinky-nude lipstick that’s right for you!

Inglot Cosmetics, $13

Lipstick in 121 Cream | shop it

An opaque nude with a pastel pink undertone. On fair skin, this lipstick looked almost natural,  save for a subtle shimmer that made our lips look fuller. On darker skin, this shade can be a bit more arresting but still gorgeous, bringing out playful pink tones.

Too Faced, $22

La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Naughty Nude | shop it

Lipgloss in stick form! This ultra rich ultra-hydrating lipstick gave us high shine packed with color. The light nude shade can go orange on some skin tones but the overall effect is still sweet, sexy, and natural. Thanks to the patent leather shine, our lips looked fuller, instantly.

Nudestix, $24

Lip & Cheek pencil in Whisper | shop it

A cooler pink-tan in a pencil form. This is a blendable yet ultra-matte option that can be patted on sheer or layered for opaque, understated lips that look perfect with a smokey eye. For use on cheeks as well, this is an incredible pencil to keep in your purse in the evening. If you don’t make it home, smudge a bit of this lively shade on your cheeks and make that walk back a little less shameful!

Anna Sui, $30

Lipstick V in 301 Beige Pink | shop it

Star-shaped and rose tinted (with a signature floral scent to match), this shade is memorable for something that looks so natural. This is a sheer color that stays balmy, so it’s comfortable to wear and could flatter nearly anyone! Every makeup bag could benefit from a tube of this pretty pinky-nude.

Charlotte Tilbury, $32

K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect | shop it

Please. Your favorite lippie ain’t got nothin’ on this nudie shade. The deep, pink-tan color is sweet, and the micro-shimmer particles make your lips look lustrous. Bonus points: added to this lipstick is UV protection. No wonder Tilbury has a cult following.


Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge in 1 Nudissimo | shop it

Need a refreshment? This sheer pinky-nude comes with a burst of moisture that melts onto the lips and stays put with an almost gel-like texture. The tinted aspect of this terra cotta pink guarantees a flattering shade for just about anyone who wears it. Our lips looked super sultry in it.
