Top 7 affordable nude lipstick shades that would suit all skin tones| swatches

Hello my lovely people out there!!!

Are you searching for affordable nude lipsticks that would compliment your skin tone? I know that feeling. I always tell that finding a perfect nude lipstick shade is difficult and once you find it, I bet you would cling onto it forever. And wearing a wrong nude shade may end up being a disaster. Because nude lipsticks have got that superpower of both enhancing your beauty instantly or washing you out completely ruining the entire look. Over a period of time, I have tried many lipsticks some of which worked amazingly well while some washed me out. And after trying them all I have compiled a list of affordable nude lipstick shades that would suit all skin tones. No matter if you are fair or dusky skin tone or you can call it Indian skin tone, the shade which I am going to list below would suit you. Some of the shade however may not suit dark skin tones.

This is one of the affordable nude lipsticks that I am definitely going to repurchase once I finish it. I am totally in love and addicted to this particular shade which I have already said in my detailed review. It is a beautiful mauvy nude lip shade that would suit all the skin tones and would compliment your look. I can’t stop wearing this. I either wear it alone or mix it with another lipstick. This is an affordable dupe of the most famous nude lipstick- MAC Mehr. Yes! you heard it right. I didn’t know this when I got it. But a month back I came to know and now I am not going to buy Mehr *because….you know why* If you have MAC Mehr then you can skip this. Vice versa

The last but not the least is a nude shade from essence. This is actually a lip liner but you can wear it as a lipstick and rock it. It’s very affordable in general and when it is on a sale on Nykaa, don’t think twice and just steal the deal. I am telling you guys will definitely love it. It is a beautiful shade mix of mauve and taupe. I don’t know how to explain it exactly, see in the swatches :P. You can wear this as a liner or as lipstick or over a lipstick.
