If there is one thing that I hoard in my makeup bag, it is my collection of nude lipsticks. I am always on the lookout for new colors and formulas. I have been known to mix as many as three lipsticks to achieve the perfect shade of nude.  I believe that warmer toned nudes are more universally flattering than cooler ones, so I tend to lean towards those. Nude lipsticks can have hints of brown, pink, and peach, so its important to find out which suits you best.  A fabulous nude lip is sexy, flattering, and the perfect complement to a strong eye. Here are a few of my favorites.

Lorac Breakthrough Performance Lipstick in Nude Scene($22)- A milky pink warm-toned nude in a very creamy formula that's scented of vanilla.

Tom Ford Lip color in Blush Nude($48)- A true pinky pale shade of nude.

Tom Ford Lip Color in Sable Smoke($48)- Definitely one of my ultimate favorites. A unique caramel, brown color in an ultra creamy formulation. Its a sophisticated and sexy lipstick!

MAC Lipstick in Cherish($15)- A soft muted peachy-beige. A gorgeous lipstick that warms up the face.

MAC Viva Glam II Lipstick($15)- A satin formula in a browny, slightly cooler toned shade of nude. Perfect for layering under a gloss.

Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense in 23($19)- An opaque, very long-lasting semi-matte nude.
