Nude lipsticks aren't a one-size-fits-all, and it will usually take you a few tries before you find the one. It also takes time to discover whether you're more of a peachy nude kind of girl or if you prefer a rosy hue—it's quite a journey. And if you're still on that boat, we have a product you might want to check out. It's a drugstore lipstick that's taking over everyone's Pinterest boards, leading it to become the most popular nude shade on the site. Curious? Here it is:
According to Allure, the Soft Matte Lip Cream in London by NYX is the most repinned nude lipstick on the media-sharing site. It has 190,000 reposts as of writing, and the number is still growing!

The NYX website descibes the product as a "mid-tone beige," which can also translate to a muted brown with a hint of peach. It comes in lightweight liquid formula that's matte but doesn't claim to be transfer-proof. We also find it non-drying and quite comfortable to wear all day.
But is the shade for everyone? We can't say so. London is more of a brown-toned nude that will complement warm-toned medium skin tones, but it might look a bit concealer-like for lighter skin tones without a lip liner underneath. For cool-toned skin, it might be too warm to look like the perfect nude shade. It will definitely work on a '90s themed look, though!
This line does have 34 shades and has tons of other nude lipsticks Filipinas can pick from. For example, there's Abu Dhabi, which is less brown and a bit more on the rose side (many girls with light-medium skin swear by it). On the other hand, a good option for those with a lighter skin tone is Stockholm, a muted pink nude.
