Trend Alert: More Nude Lips at the VMAs

Looks like the nude lip trend is hotter than ever this year. Just a few weeks ago we saw lots of pale pouts at the Teen Choice Awards, and here they are again at this year's VMAs. Celebrity attendees such as Britney Spears, Nelly Furtado, Rihanna, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Garner, Rosario Dawson, Nicole Scherzinger and Hayden Panetierre all wore a neutral, flesh colored lip. Here are a couple of great nude lip colors that make for great additions to your collection.

Scott Barnes Lipslick in Suggestive ($22) is a creamy and sexy-looking lip lacquer that falls somewhere marvelously in between a lip gloss and a lipstick.

This is the famous product known for creating the seductive nude looks on Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson and Mary J. Blige (just to name a few). It is available in five fabulous colors to suit different skin tones.

For one more amazing nude lip color,

Bare Escentuals Quick Stick ($14) is both a lipstick and a lip liner. The advantage of this packaging gives you the opportunity to create a precise, creamy matte pout in no time.

lt also includes a super handy built-in sharpener on the opposite end. It's available in ten colors, but for a nude lip, try apricot, blush, fig, peony or spice.

I'm a lip nudist as well. But yeah, I agree with mizz_jenii. I hate it when people overdo it. A lot of girls in my high school were not tan, they were dirty brown & they wore FROSTY pink lipstick. Eww? Some nude lipsticks I've come across for cheap are: -Revlon's Superlustrous Lip Gloss in Toast to Shine (my lips are very pigmented so I have to use a little concealer to tone it down) -Jane's Lip Gloss in Sassy (looks great if you use a really light layer). I really wanna try MAC's Brew. It looks gorgeous!

I love the nude lips look, but some people just take it to the extreme. I saw a girl at the mall who was so tan (oompa- loompa) tan trying to pull of a nude lip, mind you she just smeared concealer on her lips. ewww. I couldn't help but laugh as she walked by.

yeah I'm not really a fan either. I feel like the whole point of lips is to flaunt them, and nothing does that better than color or shine! I don't know...maybe with heavy eye makeup, but it just seems blah to me.

Nude lips make me feel like the look isn't complete. It's as if they were primed but not ever finished.

nude lips look terrible on me. I think my lips are naturally a bit pink, so I though I like the look on others, I look weird with my color missing.

I don't like Nelly Furtado's hair. It looks like she dumped peroxide on her head.

Rihanna is so pretty! Nude lips look the best on her. And Britney's makeup looks pretty damn good, even though her hair looks like S*** and her body was kinda out of shape!
