This roundup is for all of you neutral lip lovers out there! There are a lot of new beige nudes for lips this spring. I have a roundup of eight newer colors swatched side by side and on the lips for you. For these neutrals I will be quite frank that a lot of them look nearly identical on my medium tone skin and pigmented lips. These tones complement my medium tank skin tone in a way that makes them look very similar on the face. However when swatched side by side on the arm you will be able to see the difference in texture, undertone and finish more.
Since many of you have lighter, darker, cooler, or warmer skin tones – I hope the added descriptions and side by side swatches will help you! While they’re the same color family, there are differences in texture, coverage, undertone, finish. I’m one who is always a sucker for a good neutral beige lip but I do not think you need all of these.

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine 123 Nude Transparent

If you had any of these on your wishlist I hope this roundup helps with you your purchasing decisions! I asked Andrew if he could tell the difference between any of these and he said they all look the same too color-wise. In person he could tell the difference in finish as in shiny versus not shiny, lol. He agreed the difference is more noticeable when you swatch them on the arms side by side.
