Neutral lipsticks never appealed to me until I tried on Fluide’s. (No, this is not a promotion, this is legit.) I always went with a more purple-pink “natural” color (lol), but when I put on the peach that is Fluide’s Metro lipstick, I was forever converted to a pink-nude lover.
So I bought a neutral lipstick from MAC, too, and it was so flattering that I legit couldn’t remember why I’d never worn nudes – especially pink-nudes, which didn’t wash me out and gave me a little rosy color. I looked chic, but still kissable. #goals
If you’re like me, I’m here for you. I’m here to educate, to introduce you to the world of pink-nudes that I missed out on for far too many years. These 12 are guaranteed to give you the grin you’ve always wanted. Bonus: that lipstick on your teeth is way less obvious. (But maybe still check, you know?)

Fluide Liquid Lipstick (Metro)
I wrote a review of Fluide’s SuperNeutrals, and nope, I will never stop promoting them because they are perfect. I absolutely loved all three colors, but Metro was my favorite. It’s a peach-nude combo, and it will give the illusion of plumper lips. You don’t even need lip liner or a pencil – it goes on, stays on, and will flatter everyone.
Lipstick Cream (Blankety)
MAC is my go-to lipstick, especially their Lipstick Cream – it has a soft feel and, like the name implies, creamy application and feel. Don’t worry about a dry, heavy feel – it’s super moisturizing thanks to castor, jojoba seed, and sesame oil to keep your lips cushioned and comfy. For a nice pink nude shade, we recommend Blankety, which acts as a neutral blanket on your pout for up to eight hours.
Always On Longwear Matte Liquid Lipstick (Babe Alert)
Marissa wrote about her experience with Smashbox’s Always On. Summary: she loved it and bought two for her trip to Italy! If you’re going to wear this for a nice neutral shade, definitely stock up on Babe Alert; it has a pinker tone to it, but still remains subtle with its overall nude coloring. Jojoba, apricot, and sunflower seed oils come together to keep this lipstick extra hydrating for eight hours, and the precision tip means you can line and fill without flaw.
Kjaer Weis Lipstick (Gracious)
There are so many shades for this lipstick, ranging from an orange to a bright red to a vampy berry finish. But I’m a huge fan of their Gracious pink-nude shade, which your lips will love. Shea butter and beeswax give this lipstick its lightweight glide – no silicones! – and virgin cold-pressed Sunflower, Rose Hip, and Olive oils. It’s currently out of stock, but keep checking back!
FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS LIPSTICK AND GLOSS (Icon)
Friends With Benefits is your dream lip duo, because it covers the necessary bases in one package: a nice stick and a liquid lipstick in the same color. Shea butter, mango seed butter, avocado oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E come together to soften, smooth, hydrate, and protect from environmental stressors, so your pucker is pillow-y.
Enchanted Lip Sheer (Narcissus)
Narcissus fell in love with his own image, hence “narcissistic.” And when you see your lips in this pink-nude lipstick, you won’t be able to stop checking yourself out, either. The formula is creamy thanks to an assortment of waxes and oils, and the finish is semi-matte. And if you want a lipstick with a scent, go with this one, which is naturally floral and honey-sweet with lavender and beeswax.
Semi-Matte Lipstick (Peach Please)
Yep, mented is at Ulta, and we are so stoked for that! No matter your skin tone, there is a color that will look totally neutral on your lips – none of that neutral BS, which actually turns out to be beige. However, if you’re looking for an added dose of pink to your nude lipstick, we love their shade Peach Please. It’s not obnoxious, but it will give you a peach-y hue.
On Your Collar Matte Lipstick (bubbly)
Ariana is the queen of nudes, so it’s no surprise that she created a dreamy, matte-yet-non-drying lipstick for you. Pick up bubbly, which looks natural on all skin tones – it’s a rosy pink nude that will give your lips a little life without overwhelming your face. Though it doesn’t have any stand-out ingredients, we do love that its formula is vegan.
Lip Blur Soft-Matte Hydrating Lipstick (Modern)
Saie creates a bomb pink nude lipstick thatt can build up from sheer to smack-in-the-face; we recommend the dusty-rose-nude Modern for the just-been-kissed look. Our favorite part about this lipstick, though: its ingredients, which include hydration-locking hyaluronic acid, moisturizing olive oil, and berry fruit wax to give your lips a nice blur effect. Trust Saie to give you the best of the best!
NARS LIPSTICK (CRUISING)
Sixty shades, so you can choose your dream nude. Nope, not kidding. But we’re spotlighting Cruising, a sheer nude pink with a little shine to give you a fully-moisturized look. Moringa and passion fruit seed oils come together to nourish and provide vibrancy to the long-lasting, never-feathering formula.
Petal Pout Lip Color (Naked Blush)
Drew Barrymore’s FLOWER brand utilizes a special ingredient to make its lipstick stand out: kaolin clay, to act as a mattifier and prevent any excess oil from ruining the look of your matte makeup. Still, the formula has castor oil to soften and hydrate lips, so the clay doesn’t dry it out. Naked blush has some brown to it, but there’s enough peach for us to include it on this pink nude lipstick list.
Velvet Blur Matte Lipstick Balm (Sunrise)
Simihaze’s packaging is cute, let’s get that out of the way: which brands go with neon green as their container color of choice? Exactly. The product is even more impressive when you look at its ingredients list, which offers delish sodium hyaluronate to keep in the hydration and castor oil to smooth and soften lips. Pick nude-pink Sunrise, which offers full coverage with the feel of a balm for up to 12 hours.
