My Favorite Neutral Lipglosses


A little 'makeup rule' I've heard is that you should play up either your eyes or lips, but not both at the same time.  Since I tend to prefer to accentuate my eyes (bring on the mascara), I like to stick to a neutral shade on my lips.  Here are my five tried and true, favorite neutral lip glosses:  

Buxom (White Russian) - A very nude pink that also provides a tingling, lip plumbing sensation.
NARS (Orgasm) - This is a light pink with a hint of gold shimmer, perfect to use on a tropical vacation to accentuate a tan.
Bare Minerals Moxie (Spark Plug) - Very hydrating and made with all natural ingredients, it's my most favorite lip product. 
NYX Butter Gloss (Tiramisu) - This gloss provides medium coverage so I like to use it for nights out.  You can't beat NYX prices! 
Benefit (Sugarbomb) - Another shimmering gloss that's never sticky and actually has a pretty great flavor, too.

Do you have a signature lip color?

  1. I really want to try out the Sugarbomb lipglosses! There's also a nude, shimmery NYX lipstick that I have that is usually the one I go to - especially when I play up my eyes!

  3. I used to be soooo blah about neutral glosses and lipsticks, but now they are some of my favorites. That tiramisu color is gorgeous!

  5. I'm the same as you, I tend to play up my eyes more than my lips but I do like a fun bold lip color once in a while. Loving that NARS Orgasm gloss. How did I not know they made that shade in a gloss too, I thought it was just blush :-P

  6. I use Beautycounter's lipsticks now and love all the colors! They have a great neutral called Twig!

  7. I've been hooked on Buxom and Bare Minerals lipgloss for years! I have no idea what colors they are off the top of my head though - bad blogger! I totally agree about the eyes/lips thing!!

  8. I have only used the first two, but I love them so much that I assume the rest on the list are awesome and I will be picking up when I see them!

  9. Love this! I also tend to lean more neutral lips, so I'll have to pick a couple of these up. I love Revlon's glosses!

  10. I love the names of items, especially in makeup and personal care - it would be fun to be a naming person for a company. I think orgasm would be perfect for a beach too like you've mentioned :)

  11. Love all of them! I had that NARS lipgloss for years and it was my go-to during the summer. I will have to check out that NYX one. :-)

  12. I had never heard that little rule, but it makes sense. I'm not a fan of pink or red lips on myself, so I'm all about nudes (MAC lipsticks for the win). I will have to give one of these a try! Sometimes when I run out I use concealer and a clear gloss on my lips... Not the best idea!

  13. I don't own any of these, but now I want them all!

  15. I own a color from every one of these lines but not in the colors you mentioned and now I want them all! Buxom is seriously one of my top favs!

  16. Thanks for the eyes and lips "rule." I am so bad with bright colors, so I will definitely need to check some of these out :)

  18. Love, love, love Buxom and Nars lip glosses. The texture is so great! Have you tried Dior lipglosses? They have some great shades too.

  19. Pinning this. I'm mostly a neutral girl with my lips so this is a perfect go to sheet. I need to try Nars Orgasm - I've been saying that for years!

  20. i love all the nyx ones! i used to love one from revlon but of course they discontinued it.

  21. Since my hubs HATES lip stick, I usually have to sneak a neutral color that doesn't really attract his eye - but something that gives me a color so I don't look dead.

  22. Everyone seems to love NYX makeup, after hearing your review of the butter gloss I may have to try it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I swear by Buxom lip glosses, especially that color! I have gone through entirely too many tubes!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have been wanting to try those BM Moxie lipglosses for awhile now!! The sample set was on my Christmas wishlist even (which I'm totally buying for myself next year haha). Good to hear it gets a rave review from you!

  25. I love neutral lips. That NYX color looks awesome

  26. Some of my faves buxom and bare minerals for a nudey look. I will have to try the others.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love these same shades - especially the Nyx! It's a go-to :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. oh yes, i'm a big mascara girl too so i usually do nude lips. check out UD's naked in the lightest color... it's good too and right in line with these ones you picked!

  29. I've been wanting to try NYX products! I've always heard good things!:)

  30. Love a good nude lip! My go to's definitely! Great selection Katie!

  31. I'm so glad you posted this! Other than a few liquid lipsticks and the butter glosses I don't really have any lipgloss anymore. I used to have one of the buxom glosses that I loved (I think it was in katie, actually haha) so I might have to look into a few more of those again. Though sparkplug sounds really nice too!

  32. NYX is the best! Now I need to go pick this one up!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I very rarely wear anything other than Chapstick or light lip gloss because I'm just too lazy to mess with lipstick but I do love the NYX and Buxom brands! Love the tingle the Buxom gives! I haven't tried the Tiramisu but I love that color!

  34. I own none of these and now I want them all. I struggle immensely with nudes and neutral lipsticks.

  35. I will have to try these, I'm always looking for the perfect nude color! Xo, Stephanie
