The perfect nude lipstick?

Hi guys! I'm here looking for the perfect nude lipstick :smileyhappy: Nothing that will wash me out/look weird or overly drying. Show me your faves and what you think will work for me. Fairly light skin tone, yellow undertones, Asian. Thank you all so much! <3

Re: The perfect nude lipstick?

As a general recommendation (and while it may not work for every individual), I highly recommend Josie Maran's Argan Love Your Lips lipstick in Happy Honey, sheer-ish rosy mauve.  I've found this to be a slightly adjusting lip tone that is nude looking.

Re: The perfect nude lipstick?

I'm Asian with yellow undertones too and my lips are a similar colour to yours.

Here are some of my favourite nudes that I love to wear without looking washed out:

Re: The perfect nude lipstick?

Hi! I'm also Asian with almost the same type of complexion as yours...and my favorite nude lipstick right now is actually a drugstore kind: its the Loreal Color Privee Collection in Jennifer's (JLo's) Nude. It's a collection made in collaboration with some celebrities and actually includes a lipstick matching Chinese actress Fan BingBing's coloring, but unfortunately they are not releasing that shade in North America! Grrrr...


But anyway, Jennifer's Nude (based on Jennifer Lopez) is a really flattering nude on me. Not too light and not leaning too yellow-pink or blue-pink, so it's the perfect neutral nude for fair-medium skintones. Plus it's just $5.99 at Target, lol! I think it would look really great on you!


Below are swatches of the colors in the Color Privee collection (nudes for different skintones) via Musings of a Muse blog:


Left to Right: Frieda's Nude (nice, but leaning a little too mauvy on me), Jennifer's Nude (perfect nude on me), Doutzen's Nude (too light on me)


Left to Right: Eva's Nude (too warm on me), Julianne's Nude (pretty, but not really a's very pink), Liya's Nude (too dark on me)
