5 Must-Have Nude Lipsticks for Summer
Posted by Danielle De Wolfe in Makeup
This season it’s all about the natural look, but that needn’t mean ditching your makeup bag in favour of nothing more than oxygen. With nude lips taking pride of place on catwalks and red carpets worldwide, stars like Karlie Kloss, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Doutzen Kroes are showing us exactly how it’s done! Summer brings with it the temptation to swap lip colour for lip balm in an attempt to ward off dry, chapped pouts, but that needn’t be the case with an abundance of hydrating, vitamin-packed lipsticks on offer. So many options, so little time! Fear not however; to ensure you make the most of the summer sunshine, we’ve put together 5 of this season’s hottest nude moisture-rich lip shades to guarantee your lips look and feel great this summer – sorry lip balm, we won’t be needing you.
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick - No. 25 Rose Caprice
With the help of Givenchy’s light-reflective lip colour, natural can also mean eye-catching. Holding it's own in the long-wear lip colour stakes, #25 Rose Caprice nourishes and hydrates thanks to its powerful use of antioxidants, soothing and softening lips as it goes. Not only does it look the part with its sleek black and silver, ribbon-adorned tube, but it’s the perfect colour for any occasion, ensuring you’ll never be caught short again.
Tom Ford Lip Colour – Nude Vanille
Lip colour makes a powerful statement, none more so than the variety of nude shades Tom Ford has to offer. Our pick is Nude Vanille – an essential shade that embodies sophistication and subtlety whilst holding it’s own in the nude colour market. Containing exotic ingredients including chamomilla flower oil and Brazilian murumuru butter (now that’s a bit of a tongue twister), the range offers an ultra-creamy texture ensuring your lips are perfectly hydrated, whilst not compromising on pigment. It’s got it all.
Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour - #Cameo

MAC has once again come up trumps with Creme D’Nude – part of the iconic lip range that cemented it as a staple for makeup artists worldwide. It’s creamy texture ensures it glides on easily and like all of MAC’s lipsticks, it has the brand’s trademark staying power.
