J.Lo's Glossy Nude Lip

Tracee Ellis Ross's Matte Lip

If the AMAs host rocked a nude matte lip, so will we. Make it last all day by buffing away flakes with a lip scrub prior to applying your lipstick.

Bebe Rexha's Satin Matte Lip

This finish has the staying power of a matte with the hydration of a cream. Aka it’s the best of both worlds.

Amandla Stenberg's Creamy Rosy-Nude Lip

Yes, nude hues with pink undertones still count. Proof: Amandla Stenberg’s perfectly rosy hue, which enhances the natural color of her lips.
