Nude lip glosses, lipsticks and lip stains are my go to no matter the season. However, because my skin tone changes slightly from season to season despite my avid use of sunscreen, one color does not fit all. Today, I am sharing my three products I use for the perfect nude lip for summer plus my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that are still available.

Typically I mix colors and products between brands but this summer my favorite lip pencil, lipstick and gloss are all from Urban Decay. You know that I’m a big believer in clean beauty and do research on all the products that I use and share with you.

I too was very surprised to discover that Urban Decay makes many products that receive a great rating when I researched the ingredients in EWG. This is the database that I use to research ingredients and products. I am able to enter the ingredients in a product and get feedback on each of the ingredients and an overall rating. I can save them all in my account and go back and look if I ever have a question.

That said this summer my three products for the perfect nude lip for summer are the Urban Decay Glide Lip Pencil in Naked, the Vice Creme Lipstick in Naked and the Hi-Fi Shine Lipgloss in Midnight Cowgirl.  Midnight Cowgirl can be hard to find so I often use Fireball or Fuel.

You can see here that it is equally great with a white shirt or a neon dress! Do you you like a nude lip color in the summer? I’d love to know your favorite products, too!  Please let me know below!

Below is a boutique of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives.  This is a tight edit of my favorites including the BeautyBio Glo Pro and NuFace Trinity.  You can see blog posts here and here on those tools that I love.
