The Best Nude Lip Liners

When it comes to natural-looking lips, nude lip liners are a staple. They outline and define, as well as create depth and consistency. They can be worn with lipsticks and glosses or simply by themselves, filled in with a dab of Vaseline at the center of your lower lip. Here are the four classic must-have nude lip liners.



MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Spice is probably the most recommended lip liner of all time. It looks great on everybody, and it blends well with virtually any color of lipstick or gloss. It's no wonder the neutral pinky brown shade is a favorite among celebs. Buy it here for $12.50


Scott Barnes Lip Pencil in Barely Brown is like nothing I've ever tried. Its uniquely creamy texture makes it glide onto your lips like a lipstick would, and it creates a subtle and sheer line. Buy it here for $19.

Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Nude is a creamy liner that comes with its own sharpener. Though it is definitely a bit dark to be considered a nude liner, those in the industry favor this neutral liner above the rest. It's a mauvey-brown color with a handy brush for blending. Buy it here for $27.50.


The T. LeClerc Plaisir Lip Pencil is a light-beige color with a hint of pink, best suited for those with light to medium skin tones—but I've seen it look great on everyone! Buy it here for $15.
