"Barely There" Lip Colors

I was shocked the first time I heard a woman say to me, "I need a lip gloss that doesn't really have much color, I just like a natural clear look on my lips." What? What was the point in this? I mean, the point of lipstick is to give your lips color, right?

Well, it seems that I am guilty of collecting my own "clear" or "nude" stash of lip products over the years so I thought I do a different kind of post and share them with all of the "au naturale" lip ladies out there!
Butter London "Tea with the Queen" Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon - A super moisturizing lip crayon with a peachy hint of color

MAC "High Tea" Lipstick - A sheer frosted sea shell nude

Clinique "Heaping Hazelnut" Chubby Stick - A moisturizing lip crayon with a natural hint of nude beige
Lip Glosses
Clinique Super Balm Gloss "Ginger" - an ultra hydrating gloss with a sheer apricot finish

Buxom Full On Lip Polish "White Russian" - a plumping gloss with a pale pink tint

IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush Butter Gloss "Perfect Nude" - a salmon nude with a sheer to medium coverage finish

I will admit that it is good to have a good natural lip color on hand for those low maintenance makeup days. Do you have one of these sheer lippies hanging out in your purse?


  1. I love barely there colors!! The IT Cosmetics one looks gorgeous! I don't have any of these but my all time favorite is Almay's Rosy Lipped!

  2. Perfect nude colors. I need High tea!

  3. Thanx for the post, just today I was wondering again
