Nude Lips for Pale Skin

Hello! I'm looking for a nude lipstick. I'm pale (Too Faced Born This Way in Snow) and most nude suggestions are too dark or concealer lips. I want a pinky-nude, something that will somewhat match the color of my lips, but will give me a polished look without being overly obvious I'm wearing lipstick. I'm also looking for a matte or powdery formula. Preferably not a liquid lipstick because I don't like how they flake off or how layers build when you reapply. Any suggestions? I tried MAC Velvet Teddy, but it is way too orangey-tan for me. I do really like the MAC formula, though.

Have you tried a liner with gloss for an everyday look - it’s my go-to and avoids drying out my lips. I like Charlotte Tilsbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Supersize Me and Laneige gloss in Grapefruit.

@Jacie7 Check out the Too Faced Peach Puff Long-Wearing Diffused Matte Lip Color Boy Byeformula.  I have it in Stoked which is definitely a very slightly pinky-nude but there are definitely other nude colors in the line.  It's an interesting formula with a matte finish but it doesn't feel overly drying and it's nice because even after the actual product fades it leaves just a bit of a stain.  It also lasts FOREVER.  I was using mine very consistently--it lived in my purse--and I finally used mine up after about 6 or 7 months.

Hi @Jacie7,


I recommend trying the HUDA BEAUTY Power Bullet Matte Lipstick Staycation.

I have found it provides great coverage and is the perfect nude!
