The Creamy Nude Lip: Cafe Lattes, Milk Teas, and Hot Chocolate Nudes for Fall!
Here are 6 shades of creamy nudes from 3 brands; MAC, The Body Shop, and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
Café Latte: MAC Fresh Brew
This straight brown nude is a glossy Lustre finish, and one of the few nudes that actually works beautifully on dark skins because it creates the creamy effect without looking chalky.
Hot Chocolate Foam: MAC Blankety
Creamy beige but with an almost-pink tinge, the way the foam capping hot chocolate can look. This Amplified lipstick is opaque, and isn’t all that flattering on darker skins because the pale pink undertone can look chalky and grey. But it’s gorgeous on lighter skins.
Hazelnut Latte: The Body Shop Colour Crush 220
A straight beige without pink or orange undertones. Works for pale to medium skins.
Chai Latte: The Body Shop Colour Crush 310
A slightly mauve-toned medium beige nude that works on medium to tan skins and paler skins with a pink undertone. On very pale yellow-toned skins, the slightly plummy undertones might sometimes make the skin look dull or sallow.
Thai Milk Tea: OCC Kava Kava
Strong milk teas in Thailand come with a distinctive orange-red tone (and taste absolutely wonderful by the way). The orange tone makes these lip colors look gorgeous on pale skins and look like a pastel creamy-orange against medium to darker skins. Works better on yellow/gold-toned skins.
Caramel Latte: OCC Marion
This is one of the best shades for mediterranean/olive toned skins because it’s got just enough warmth in the beige to complement tanned skins. Also works as a soft nude on darker skins, and a deeper nude on pale skins without looking grey or corpse-like. Probably my favorite “nude” brown.
