Hi.

I'm just a girl rapidly approaching mid-life who believes in awesome skincare, grown-up makeup, effortless hair, and classic style. Enjoy!

I have been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick, so I hauled a bunch of them to figure out which one works best with my skin tone. Most are from the new Sephora"Give me some nude lip" box set, plus a few others I found at Nordstrom. I tend to be in the lighter shades with yellow undertones, sometimes called warm. Below are the swatches on my skin for comparison sake. 

My fav nudes
Bite Beauty in Honeycomb
Charlotte Tilbury in Bitch Perfect (based on @WayneGossMakeupArtist recommendation)

Fav 90s brown nude
Bite Beauty Multistick in Cashew (based on Jillian from @TheAugustDiaries multistick recommendation). This is my favorite all-around product because it can be used for lips, cheeks, and eyelids!

Wrong tone for me
Too Faced in Queen Bee - it has a bit too much of a blue undertone for my taste. 
Buxom in White Russian doesn't have a lot of color. It can be used as a topper for another lipstick, but I would rather use Bite Beauty's Agave Lip Mask in Champagne instead.
Fresh Sugar in Nude again had little color payoff. 

Hope this helps you out a bit on your own journey for the perfect nude.
