I love a good nude lipstick — what I love more, however? A good neutral lipstick at a totally reasonable price. Because I pretty much rock neutrals in my daily routine, I go through tubes quickly, so it’s helpful to have a couple of the same shade on hand in case of a nude-lip emergency. Ahead, find the five best drugstore neutral lipsticks to mix and match — they’re so affordable, you can buy two.
Dubai is a creamy brown neutral that swipes on with minimal effort. The shade is super rich and pigmented, and it looks stunning on every skin tone. Not to mention, it’s super comfortable to wear.
For a more pink nude, try Box O Chocolate by L’Oréal Paris. This liquid lip leaves behind a matte, opaque brown finish with pink undertones that you can dress up with a smoky eye or dress down with a neutral face. Plus, it smells just like chocolate.
Another affordable fave, Mykonos is the nude lip duo that every guru needs in their collection. On one side, you get the perfect nudey-pink-brown matte lipstick, and on the other, you get a matching gloss to wear over top or alone. This duo is a secret weapon for the ultimate neutral pout.
Sugar Mama is the nude opaque lip gloss that you need to add to your stash ASAP. Not only is it highly pigmented and super mess-free, but it’s also only $8 a pop.
For a stunning nude lip, try Praline by E.l.f. This matte lip color is blendable, buildable and will leave your lips looking hydrated, smooth and striking.
