I'm someone who sticks to what she knows. Call it boring. I like what I like and I never venture outside of the box. Wait, that actually does sound boring. I'm also a traditionalist, so often abstain from bright reds and pinks - so nude is always my go to choice for a perfect and very much stress free lip colour.

The problem is I've struggled with finding the right type of nude and after conversations within the beauty team, I'm probably not the only one bothered by what should be a simple find. What are we looking for in the perfect nude lipgloss? Long lasting wear, fluidity, pigment? There's a long list of wants and needs. So, I've locked down three of the best and affordable nude lip glosses.

NYX butter gloss - angel food cake

Shades are plenty with The NYX Butter Gloss, which has been a trailblazer in the world of nude glosses. With its super creamy texture, that resembles butter, it's non-sticky and delightfully provides intense shine. A little goes a long way.
