10 fab nude lipsticks you can get for under a tenner

Nude, but not rude to your wallet.

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

NUDE LIPSTICK HAS been having a moment, what with the resurgence of 90s trends and the popularity of one Kylie Jenner.

You needn’t blow all your euros on Lip Kits to get the look, however – there are plenty of great options for under a tenner.

1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm, €8

The Soft Matte Lip Creams are liquid lipsticks for people who hate liquid lipsticks. They’re soft and easy to work with, but the colour payoff is still there. Stockholm is a pale peachy nude, but there are a host of other shades to choose from.

2. Essence Longlasting Lipstick in Come Naturally, €2.89

This is a) a bargain and b) a bit different from what we usually think of as ‘nude’. See how it’s almost lavender? Nice.

3. Rimmel Kate Moss in 08, €7.49

This is lovely. It’s creamy and comfortable and not too pale – just a perfect ‘my lips but better’ shade.

4. Wet’n'Wild Megalast in Bare It All, €2.99

A true nude very similar to Mac’s far pricier Velvet Teddy. If it’s a bit too pale for you, the shades Rosebud (rosy pink) and Spiked With Rum (rosy brown) are also very pretty.

5. Catrice Ultimate Colour in In A Rose Garden, €4.49

It’s not all about mattes, you know! This creamy dusky pink from Catrice is perfect for everyday wear.

6. Seventeen Stay Pout in Just A Fling, €5.99

This classic nude lipstick (long wearing but with shea butter to keep the lips moisturised) is just begging to be paired with a smokey eye.

7. NYX Liquid Suede in Soft Spoken, €9

NYX are big players in the lipstick game these days. This is a touch on the brown side, making it a very 90s choice and a great a dupe for Kat Von D’s cult shade, Lolita.

8. Rimmel Provocalips in Make Your Move, €8.99

We’ve pooh-poohed claims of 16 hour wear in the past, but this stuff seriously DOES NOT BUDGE. The balm/gloss on the other end keeps things nice and comfy, however.

9. Sleek Matte Me in Birthday Suit, €7

Psst. This is a dupe for Kylie’s Candy K Lip Kit. And at €7? It’s a steal.

10. Lidl Cien Lipstick in Nude Brown, €2.49
