The Best Nude Lip Glosses for a "Your Lips But Better" LookAugust 03, 2022
This cult-favorite lip gloss boasts extra high shine and a ton of hydration to make your lips feel, well, juicy. The formula is the perfect amount of tackiness to make it feel substantial and leave your lips moisturized, and the Dreamsicle color adds just a tinge of rosiness to your look.
At under $10, the NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss is a makeup bag must-have. The non-sticky formula makes it perfect for applying over a lipstick or stain, or wearing on its own. Plus, there is a whole line of nude shades made for brown skin tones, and a clear option too.
This Urban Decay gloss not only makes lips appear fuller and more hydrated, but it’s also a vegan and cruelty-free product, too. Made with hyaluronic acid, shea butter and passion fruit oil, the formula will plump and moisturize your lips while adding a bit of sheer shine.
The Maybelline New York Lifter Gloss in the Bronzed shades are inspired by golden hour sunsets, and “Sun” offers the perfect amount of luminosity and shimmer in a nearly-clear color. Plus, the formula is designed to not only plump lips, but also to enhance their natural shape while smoothing their surface.
Even “no-makeup” makeup looks sometimes need a bit of sparkle, and that’s when you should reach for this gloss from L’Oréal Paris. Beyond offering a bit of shimmer, these shades all help with the appearance of volume, and the extra precise applicator makes it easy to apply in one stroke.
This “jelly” combines the shine of a lip gloss with the comfort of a lip balm, and while some lip glosses leave lips feeling dry, the Shine On Lip Jelly uses five different oils to hydrate and protect lips. The “Cashew” shade is also a semi-sheer rosy brown for a pop of neutral color.
Made with a blend of aloe butter, vitamin E and black currant oil, Posh Gloss delivers a mirror-like shine to your lips with shades that were made for summer. Plus, it even has anti-aging properties and is designed to repair and hydrate lips.
The benefits of this lip gloss are right in the name: It’s been proven to plump lips and decrease wrinkles, so you can skip a trip to the med-spa. (With frequent use, it’s proven to actually increase your lip volume, too!) The oversized applicator hugs your lips curves, making for a luxurious spa-like feel.
