Best Nude Lipsticks for Olive Skin

 It's not until recently that I've become a lipstick lover. I guess you can say I'm a late bloomer when it comes to makeup, but it's when I discovered the nude lipstick look it had my name a l l over that. And let's face it-not all nude lipsticks are the same! Now, let's toss in olive skin and it's been slightly trickier. I didn't want anything that was lighter than my actual skin color and these 3 definitely pass the test.
 This was my very first introduction to nudes. Shanghai Spice has a peachy, coral hint to it and has sheer coverage. Sometimes I layer it on top of my third pick, Nars in Barbara.
 Let's be real almost errrybody and there mom probably has heard about Velvet Teddy, but it's great on olive skin. It's not too light and not too dark. And call me crazy but it has a coconut smell to it that I'm perfectly okay with.

Oh, Barbara! Nars lipstick in Barbara subtle difference but my go-to for everyday when I want a little difference from my natural lip color. I would say this one you do need to play up the eyes more or you can look washed out.

Do you have any favorite nude lip colors? I'm always on the hunt for another great one!


  1. Great picks, Adri! You look great! I love the names they choose for these lipstick shades. 'Velvet Teddy' is cute!

  2. Thanks for the post. I cannot wait to try Mac Velvet Teddy.
    One of my favorites for Olive tones is Smashbox Honey.

  3. Great selection! Nude are the perfect go to the daily life and we were actually looking for some good ones! This selection seems great, we'll definitely have a look on the Nars one. And we are also looking for a matte one, so we'll keep looking!
    We have one favorite lipcolor from mac, which is the FAUX. It's a little bit more rosy, but it still does a nude kind of effect.
    Thank you for sharing your pick!

  4. Love your nude lipstick collection! Great shades!

  10. I adore nude lippies but remain a little on the fence about using them. I mean, I have Shanghai Spice. However, I use it rarely and when I do, I feel pale and washed out, you know. I also like Kat Von D's Backstage Bambi, it's several shades more intense and because of that, I think it works better for me :)

  11. Love the shades!
