Move Over Nude: 5 No-Lipstick Lipstick Shades We Love
Step aside nude, rose-colored lipsticks are the new no-lipstick lipsticks. Ahead, we share our top five picks for the ultimate no-lipstick lipstick shades to try this season from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands.
In the past, when we’ve gone for a no-makeup makeup look, we’ve often turned to nude lipsticks and glosses. For most, these barely-there shades give our pouts a wash of natural-looking color. However, since many nude lippies venture into foundation-colored territory, for some of us these au natural shades end up washing us out instead of giving us that I just woke up like this appeal. Thankfully, if nude lipsticks and glosses do this to your complexion there’s another option. This season, swap out your nude lipstick for a rose-colored lipstick, lip gloss, or lip balm! Rose-colored lipsticks more closely resemble the natural pink tone of our lips, making them the perfect pick for a no-makeup makeup look! Keep reading to see our top five picks for no-lipstick lipstick shades.
