Sometimes, you want to add a little something to a makeup look. Like a touch of lipstick, but not enough that you have to worry about how it looks all night, or getting it on bae when you give them a kiss on the cheek. That's what nude lipstick is for. It adds the perfect touch of color, without adding any actual color. Still, finding the perfect nude lipstick can be difficult, so, I asked some Seventeen editors to go through their makeup bags and share their most tried-and-true nudes to come up with this list of the best 15 products out there. This Maybelline lipstick is perfect if you want a good, go-to nude, but don't want to break the bank.

Nude Lipsticks for Every Skin Tone - The Best Nude Lipstick
You guys know that when we create products, I always want to do something new, and that was SO important to me when we made our New Nude Palette. Makeup has always been my form of self-expression, and when I wear a nude eye, I just feel confident and sexy. I wanted to reinvent nude with neutral and cool shades, and give you guys something to experiment, empower, and express yourselves with. Super creamy mattes, easy to apply glitters, and my absolute favorite; multi-reflective shades with different shimmering pearl flecks that have the most ahhhmazing duo-chromatic finish. We also included a stunning pressed pearl formula, and something else really new — a concealer base that you can apply before eyeshadows to intensify their finish. For a more subtle finish, you can apply these with a brush over mattes, or if you really want to glow, you can use them alone. Pack these on to the lid with a dense brush for insane sparkle.
The 28 Nude Lipsticks Every Woman Should Own
True to its name, this silky, lightweight lipstick is a your-lips-but-better match for deeper skintones. This neutral-toned nude is especially flattering on cool, medium skintones and the long-wearing formula means you won't have to reapply every ten minutes. Pale types often get pigeonholed as having cool skintones. This golden-tinted nude is the solution for warm-toned fair skin.
Finding the perfect nude lipstick is harder than it sounds. Too dark, and you look like you're trying to make brown lipstick happen and not in a cool '90s way. Too light, and you start to resemble the living dead. But nail the right nude lipstick shade and life or at least getting ready will seem so much easier. The perfect nude will make your skin look alive, your eyes sparkly and will work with everything from that velvet suit to your grey knit and cropped jean combo.
