This Is the Most Flattering Nude Lipstick, According to the Internet
Choosing a nude lipstick sounds like a seemingly easy concept, right? Wrong. These days, there are endless options of neutral shades, with colours ranging from dusty pinks to Kylie Jenner-style taupes. Like the perfect white shirt or jeans that actually fit, searching for the most flattering shade of nude can prove to be a tiresome and expensive process.
Fortunately, the brains at Rank & Style have done the leg work, compiling a list of the best nude lipsticks on the internet that actually flatter all skintones. The top spot was taken out by none other than Charlotte Tilbury's iconic K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in the shade 'Nude Kate' ($49), and for good reason. The pinky-beige is just sheer enough to give a flattering wash of colour without being chalky. The moisturising formula will give the illusion of a plumper pout, too (especially when paired with the matching liner). The list rounds out with other cult buys you've no-doubt had in your handbag at some point.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Nude Kate ($49)
The top spot belongs to this perfect pink-toned beige from Charlotte Tilbury (Kate Moss served as shade inspo). The fact that it isn't heavily pigmented means it works for a range of skintones. Plus, it's super moisturising, so pillowy lips are just one swipe away.
Make Up For Ever Artist Roughe Lipstick in Rose Wood ($36)
Bold and pigment-heavy, this dusty pink from Make Up For Ever is great if you like neutral shades, but still want to look as if you're done up. The bullet is designed to give you a precise application (so you can go liner-free). Great for keeping desk-side.
Hourglass Lip Stylo in No. 3 ($46)
There was a lot of hype when these stylos from Hourglass launched into Mecca. Moisturising and easy to apply, shade No. 3 is a soft rosy-pink for plump, girly lips. The fact that it's retractable makes it ideal for travelling or carting around in your handbag, too.
