Trending Nude Lip Products From Matte to Glossy


Nude lips products are all the rage this year, and we can understand why: it’s so effortless, yet polished. Nude lips are pretty much perfect for any occasion and if you aren’t completely won over yet, we’re here to convince you. These lip products are some of the best on the market and their range of nude lip colors for various skin tones is no except. Whether you like lip stains, matte liquid lipsticks, or gloss, there’s a nude lip product here for you.

A Matte Liquid Lipstick: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
Stila’s liquid lipsticks are a cult favorite in the beauty community and it’s pretty obvious why: not only is the color range flattering on all skin tones, but they really do last a long time without budging. The shade “Caramello” is a light nude lipstick perfect for lighter skin tones. For medium to dark skin tones, try “Dolce,” a beautiful chocolatey shade. It even has a little glitter it in for subtle sparkle!

A Lip Gloss: RealHer Lip Plumping Lip Gloss
RealHer’s products are more than just pretty packaging: they are reliable and effective. Their Lip Plumping Lip Gloss in the shade “Deep Nude” will make you rethink how you feel about lip gloss. It’s not sticky, lasts a long time, and makes your lips look a little fuller. It comes a part of their Deep Nude Lip Kit, which also includes a Nude Lip Liner and Matte Liquid Lipstick.

Lime Crime Cosmetics
If you haven’t heard of Lime Crime Cosmetics, it’s an extreme honor to introduce you to this cool-girl beauty brand—or in Lime Crime’s words, makeup created for unicorns. Designed by founder and CEO Doe Deere, this beauty brand is a total wild card made for expressing an individual’s personality and out-of-this-world style.

Orange Cream Key Lime
Whish Beauty
Made for women with sensitive skin in mind, creator Jesse Werner, who is on the same boat, started Whish Beauty to help women with the same needs and desires in skincare. After experiencing and trying skincare products from all over, he hit the jackpot when he discovered a rich European cream with his name written all over it. When his wife fell into the same predicament of wanting skincare products that produced a clean shave and left her skin feeling refreshed, Werner went on a mission to create products that achieved just that and more. What began as a collection of impeccable shaving creams branched out into a skincare collection focused on whole body needs. Whish products contain no harsh chemicals and instead include only organic ingredients for a natural production. In celebration of the 2015 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Whish launched the Soda Fountain Collection, which included luxurious bath and body gels and body butters available in scrumptious flavors like Ginger Melon, Black Cherry, Orange Creme, and Key Lime. Each product creates the scene of being in an old-fashioned ice cream parlor with a bottle of pop in hand. Mmm! These vintage soda fountain flavors will leave your skin feeling smooth and revitalized all day long! You can get your hands on this wonderful skin care line at www.whishbody.com or at www.nordstrom.com and in Nordstrom stores nationwide. Stay in the know with this delectable brand via their social networks, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Tag @WhishBeauty as well in any posts to showcase their amazing products!

LORAC Cosmetics
LORAC creator Carol Shaw conquered the beauty world with her own beauty brain when she began to notice that there was a demand for products that made women feel like themselves but enhanced their natural beauty as well. LORAC, or “Carol” spelled backwards, has grown over the years and is known for their easy-to-use-products that often fall into anyone’s makeup bag when they comes across the collection. The treatment-based makeup within this brand takes quality into a whole other level; it includes skin rejuvenators, plant extracts, emollients, conditioners, and more ingredients that makes one’s skin still feel impeccable underneath. LORAC’s new Fall 15’ collection presents nothing less than just that while offering way more for us in our makeup collections this season, such as the brand’s first contour palette, the PRO Contour Palette, and a sequel from their best-selling PRO Mascara, the PRO Plus Fiber Mascara. Each new product within the collection brings something we all are missing and needing in our beauty lives. I’m most excited about LORAC’s new eyeshadow palettes that are “serving so much face” in all of their shades, including the PRO Matte Eye Shadow Palette and the Limited Edition PRO Metal Eye Shadow Palette. Talk about so many eye shadow looks you can create while following upcoming fall beauty trends (or even start thinking up designs for Halloween)! Gain inspiration from LORAC’s very own social media networks, including Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
