I love a good nude lipstick. What I love more, however? A good neutral lipstick at a totally reasonable price. Since 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 affordable enough so you can stock up.
If you’re a matte lip lover, Skinny Dip is the perfect beige lip shade with a slight orange undertone. For a drugstore lip color, this is probably one of the best matte lip coverage formulas you’ll get, hands down.
Another drugstore matte lip option — Sandstorm is a creamy light brown neutral that swipes on with minimal effort. The color is super rich and pigmented, as well — this will be one you repurchase for ages.
For a bright beigey-pink finish, Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in 5th Avenude is a great creamy and hydrating formula to try. Buy 5th Avenude in bulk, or mix it with some of these other nude drugstore options — either way, you’ll be way more than neutrally happy (pun intended).
