9 Best Nude Lip Glosses To Shop For Spring, Because Shimmery Lips Are Back

Spring and summer beauty are my favorite. Natural color, dewy coverage, and creamy consistencies are what it's all about, which is why you need to know the best nude lip glosses to shop in order to get your sheen on.

Glossy formulations have taken a back seat during the matte, liquid lipstick craze. But it's certainly a lighter, more natural look and that's what makes glossy glosses perfect for summer. You don't have to worry about smearing them all over everything, and you can go from errands to the pool seamlessly with a gloss. Best of all? They're far more hydrating than matte or regular lipstick formulas, so your pout can stay healthy through hot summer days.

Like a little black dress or an iconic red lipstick, everyone needs a signature nude lip gloss in their makeup kit. They're great for no-makeup-days or when you want to let your eyes do all the talking. Nude also looks great with and without a tan. There's a reason Kim Kardashian still rocks a wet, nude lip on the fanciest of red carpet events: it's timeless and always looks flattering.

Below are some of my favorite glossy nude lip formulations on the market. Luckily, you can find a wide range of peachy, pinky, or true-nudes at the drugstore and department store.

1. NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée
