10 Stunning Nude Lipsticks For Indian Skin Tones


10 Stunning Nude Lipsticks For Indian Skin Tones

Hello girls,

How are you all? Is it raining in your city? Delhi has been seeing continuous rain showers, and the weather here is awesome. But with monsoons, I tend to opt for more of a minimal, no-makeup look kind of a look.

Nude lipsticks are my favorite when opting for no makeup looks, and as we all know, choosing the perfect nude for your skin tone is not such an easy task. After all, there are so many nude shades out there, and unlike the bright lippies, we cannot say that which colors will suit us and which wouldn’t.

From brown-undertones, to peachy-pink nudes, we have an array of nude toned lipsticks and here I have compiled a list of the best nude lipsticks which are sure to suit us Indian beauties.

Chambor powder matte Lipstick in Desert Rose

First the amazing powder matte formulation which this range from chamber offers, the non-drying velvety matte finish, plus this gorgeous, gorgeous shade Desert Rose is the typical love-at-first-swipe kind of lipstick. It applies beautifully, is not at all streaky, plus stays on for quite a long time. This one is a favorite!

Colorbar Velvet Matte lipstick in Bare

Colorbar Velvet Matte was most probably the very first nude lippie which entered my cute little vanity. Bare would suit any kind of skin tone, in fact, I would say that this lipstick formulation adepts itself to the person wearing it. On my medium-fair skin it shows more of a pinky-nude, while on a friend of mine (fair skin) it shows like a true nude. How cool is that?

Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Color Toffee Nexus

Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick _Toffee Nexus Review Package+lipstick

Toffee nexus is one of those pretty nude hues which is a true nude. Coming from the most trusted Indian brand, toffee nexus holds true to its long staying claim and easily lasts for 4-5 hours, leaving a pretty rosy stain behind. Plus, it is very pocket friendly.

L’oreal Color Riche 456 Beige Creme

Moisturizing, amazingly pigmented, opaque coverage, luxuriously creamy, and long lasting (about 4 hours) this is what defines this true pinky nude for Indian skin tones from the house of loreal. Holding true to the name, this lipstick is really very rich in color; leaving the lips supple and smooth, with a gorgeous swipe of delicate color.

Maybelline Color Sensational The Buff Lipstick in Stormy Sahara

I have always yearned for a nude with no undertones—just plain nude, neither brown, nor pink or peach undertones. Though such colors can get a tad difficult to carry for Indian skin tones, this lipstick from Maybelline’s The Buff collection “sahara storm” is one such ultra-nude shade which all fair to medium Indian skin tones can rock easily.

Faces Go Chic Lipstick in Fig


The most pocket friendly lippie on the list, FIG from the go chic lipstick collection of Faces, though not insanely pigmented, is a gorgeous browny-nude shade which is just perfect for the indian skin tones. It has a glossy finish, a sweet (not overpowering) vanilla scent and comes to an opaque finish in 2-3 swipes.

Mac Lipstick Velvet Teddy

One of the most flattering nudes for medium Indian skin tones is this skeptical little baby from Mac—Velvet Teddy. It has warm yellow undertones, and gives opaque coverage in just one swipe. Non-streaky, opaque, beautiful warm shade and a gorgeous satiny-matte finish; Velevet teddy is a blissful lipstick for the nude lovers.

Colorbar Take me as I am in Bare Dare Pink

Colorbar Take Me As I Am Bare Dare Pink Review Package+lipstick shade

Since the time colorbar launched its Take me as I am range of chubby lip pencils, they have been a huge hit with pros and novices alike. The shade bare dare pink is such a stunningly gorgeous pinky-nude lipstick and is oh-so-creamy, with a glossy finish. A very close dupe of chamber powder matte, yay! 😀

Mac Cosmo lipstick

MAC Cosmo lipstick+best pink lipstick for brown skin+best mac lipstick pink brown

This one has to be my utter favorite from the list. Cosmo is from the amplified creme lipstick range, and is described as PINK COCOA by the company. A warm toned tea-rose kind of pinky hued nude shade, cosmo sets into a semi-matte finish; without settling into the fine lines of your lips.

Which of these nudes are you looking out for?
