Here are 10 nude lippies under P500 you can shop now:
Colourtints in Olive (P299) from Colourette
Colourette has become known for their wide and inclusive shade ranges that complement morena skin tones—and the new Colourtint in Olive is no exception. It’s a warm cocoa brown shade with a satin-matte finish. The Colourtints are ultra-pigmented and formulated to last all-day long, so you don’t have to worry about constantly retouching your lipstick! You can get through an entire day of work, school, or errands with minimal to no retouches with this MLBB lippie.

Tinta Lipstick in Kahoy (P250) from Filipinta
Filipinta is another homegrown brand that specializes in makeup for Filipina skin tones. Tinta is their version of a thick pencil lipstick. The shade Kahoy is a dusty rose color with peachy undertones and a semi-matte finish, but if you prefer a more glossy finish to your lippie, you can opt for the shade Donya Aurora, instead—apart from the finish, the color payoff is nearly identical.
Fluffmatte in Baby Spice (P345) from Sunnies Face
The Baby Spice lippie is part of Sunnies Face’s newest Nudes Collection. The shade is actually inspired by another shade they created earlier in the Fluffmatte line called Nudist, so fans of the latter would love the former’s more pink-toned variation of the hue. This cool blush nude has a soft matte finish and is buildable, too, allowing you to make it as subtle or pronounced as you please.

Sensational Liquid Matte in Nude Shot (P229) from Maybelline
If you prefer liquid lippies, Maybelline’s Nude Shot could be the MLBB lipstick for you. This toasted caramel shade has a lightweight and blendable formula with lasting power that won’t give you awfully dry lips after application. Its soft matte finish ensures that your lips stay comfortable (a.k.a not tight and cracking) all throughout the day, making it a perfect everyday lippie.

Creamy Matte Lipstick in Heartbreaker (P299) from Pink Sugar
This Pink Sugar lipstick is perfect for the girl on-the-go. Its dual-purpose formula means it’s a lippie and a lip balm all rolled into one. The shade Heartbreaker is a stunning berry-hued lippie with warm brown undertones. It has a creamy, semi-matte finish and is infused with Shea Butter and Vitamin E to keep your lips plump and moisturized.
