I can’t deny it! I am indeed head over heels in love with nude lipsticks. I used to think I look sick whenever I wear nudes but now, I’m really glad that I decided to try them. I am so obsessed with nudes! They’re so simple yet it makes me look so extra. If you know what I mean! *wink* I know every skin tone has their own perfect kind of nude and I honestly struggled to find the perfect nude for me. It took me awhile before I found it and that’s why I bought a bunch from Colourpop to figure out what suits me. Of course, I did my research before buying. I read countless blogs and watched videos for reference. So today, I am going to be swatching the nudes that I have from Colourpop. I want to help you guys out in case you can’t decide what to get.
A friendly tip ― NEVER trust the color on the tube. It’s not what it seems like! It’s never the same when it comes to Colourpop. *laughs* Also, don’t trust the lip swatches you see on their website. I don’t know but for some reason, it doesn’t seem accurate. So before getting yourself some, read blogs & watch videos on Youtube!
I got a total of 9 nude lipsticks. I know. It’s a lot. If you saw my Colourpop Haul on my Youtube channel, you’d know that most of the lippies that I got were nudes! (And here they are lol)
The infamous Ultra Matte’s are indeed drying but I have noticed a bit difference on some of them. I can’t exactly point which but some of it (I’m guessing the newer shades they came up with) are less drying and are actually lightweight. Some are thick and very drying particularly Chi and Times Square. My favorite formulation from Colourpop would be their Lippie Stix in the matte X. It’s very creamy and matte! I’m obsessed!
I’m not the biggest fan of their usual packaging. It fades too quickly and I can’t tell if it’s an ultra matte or a satin one. I love their holiday packaging though! I love the black and matte frosty tube.
These are just for $6 and the Lippies Stix are cheaper than the liquid ones so yes, they are definitely good considering the price! If you cannot get them directly from Colourpop, there are A LOT of resellers on Instagram and Shopee.

Swatches on my lips
PS: Don’t expect me to describe the colors for you because I suck at that and besides, all you need is a photo showing you the color and I’m giving you just that! *wink* Also note that I’m acidic so they tend to get darker on me. *cries*
My favorite would be Knotty! It’s the perfect nude for me! How about you? What’s your favorite among the 9 lipsticks I swatched above?
I hope you liked them and I hope I helped in a way! Leave me some love below! Oh, if you know any brand that has good nude liquid lipsticks and if you have review requests, let me know!
