Finding that perfect shade of nude / MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick for Indian skin tones is a very challenging task because a lot of shades tend to wash out on us. Don’t fret beauties, here I have complied a list of top affordable nude lipsticks for Indian skin tones that are easily available in India. Let’s start with the post!
I have divided this post into three price categories – Rs.800, Rs.500 and Rs.300 so that you girls can easily find a budget nude lipstick for yourself!
Affordable Nude Lipsticks For Indian Skin Tones – Under Rs.800
Has to be the best seller from Sugar cosmetics! I have seen so many people rave about this shade. It’s a shame that I still don’t own it.
Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayon Peach Me 08 // Rs.799/-
It’s a lovely peachy shade, very apt for Indian skin tones. Certain light peach shades can look really pale on Indian complexions, but this one doesn’t. It is perfect nude lipstick for people with fair skin tone and warm undertones.
LA Girl Lip Paint Glazed Elude // Rs.650/-
Lip paints aren’t that popular in India. But it’s always fun to try something new, right? It’s basically just a hybrid of a lipstick and a lip gloss. There are total 18 shades in the lip paint glazed collection. You can check out the shade Elude which appears to be a coraly-nude colour.
Affordable Nude Lipsticks For Indian Skin Tones – Under Rs.500 – 550
Revlon Matte Lipstick Fabulous Fig // Rs.499/-
Fabulous Fig is not exactly a “nude” shade, it’s more like medium terracotta brown one. If you wear it as a stain, it will come out as a perfect nude shade for you. I love it because it has an awesome formula. It is my most favourite lipstick of all time.
The lip gradation range by Maybelline has the best lipstick shades for Indian skin tones! Each and every shade from this range can look FAB on just any of the Indian skin complexions. This shade “Mauve 1” is actually a brownish nude lipstick shade that would be suitable for those on the duskier side. You can also check out Coral 1 shade from the same range.
Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Lip Color Toffee Nexus // Rs.450/-
Lakme has a lot of shade options in their 9 to 5 range. Toffee Nexus is a shade worth trying out if you are looking for a peachy nude lipstick!
Lakme was a late bloomer in launching liquid lipsticks. But when they launched them, they instantly became a hit! These matte mousse liquid lipsticks are said to be extremely light weight and comfortable on the lips. Check out these two shade called Coffee Lite and Blush Velvet.
I got to know about the launch of Maybelline’s powder matte lipsticks recently. There is a shade called Touch Of Nude in this range that’s a very pretty nude shade lipstick for pale/medium Indian skin complexion.
The creamy matte range was launched in India right before the powder matte one. I saw Nude Nuance shade on Maybelline New York’s Snapchat and I was like, Yes – I gotta add this shade to my list! It’s a GORGEOUS nude lipstick shade for dusky Indian skin tone. All you dusky beauties out there are definitely gonna fall in love with its swatch so do check it out on Google. There’s another shade called Touch Of Spice but sadly, it’s always out of stock on Nykaa. Touch Of Spice has pink tones in it while Nude Nuance falls more on the warm/neutral side. I would recommend you to try out Touch Of Spice if you want a nude pink lipstick.
NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick B52 // Rs.475/-
B52 is a dusty nude pink lipstick shade. Yep, it doesn’t have any name – just a code number. Dusky beauties can check out shade “Doll” from the same range!
Affordable Nude Lipsticks For Indian Skin Tones – Under Rs.300
Street Wear Color Rich Ultra Moist Lipstick Runway Russet // Rs.199/-
Street Wear is a sister brand of Revlon which makes highly affordable makeup and nail products. Runway Russet from their Ultra Most range is a neutral nude shade which is ideal for office or college wear.
Elle 18 Color Boost Lipstick Pink Blonde // Rs.150/-
Elle 18 is another very affordable brand, targeted towards school and college going girls. They have a lot of stunning lipstick shades in their color pops, color burst and color boost collection. They recently launched a matte lipstick range as well, but unfortunately, there are no nude shades in it.
Essence Long Lasting Lipstick Barely There // Rs.299/-
Barely there is a pinky-nude shade. It’s a much talked-about lipstick by Essence Cosmetics. If you want to buy a lip liner instead of a lipstick, then I would recommend you to go for Essence In The Nude lip liner which costs only Rs.129.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Birthday Suit
Rimmel’s lasting finish lipsticks and Kate moss lipsticks are popular throughout the world! You can find both of the collections on Nykaa. The swatches of Birthday Suit tell that it’s a pretty brownish nude shade. Other shades to check out – Nude Pink, Guest List and Firecracker.
