Best LipSense Shades for Blondes
Below are our top picks for a starter LipSense lip palette for every skin tone and shade of blonde.
We’ll be talking about these shades in detail below.
Best LipSense Shades for Blondes: The Colors
Nudes and Neutrals
The Nude Honey shade of LipSense is a warm nude that beautifully complements a neutral makeup look without blending into the background.
This pale pink makes a gorgeous statement for blondes with warmer skin and hair.
The vivid, retro red of Fly Girl is a great way to make a statement that lasts all day.
The warm, orange-red of persimmon is perfect for fall fashions, and looks gorgeous with warm, honey colors.
Nudes and Neutrals
Pink Champagne is an incredibly popular Lipsense shade, with a delicate, natural pink color that flatters almost everyone.
This gentle pink is long lasting and pretty, and can go anywhere in style.
Depending on your natural lip tone, Fire n Ice may come across as a bright red with pink overtones. It’s a beautiful statement color that makes cool skin tones pop.
This is a beautiful pink-ish purple for stand-out lips that just won’t quit.
Nudes and Neutrals
First Love is a true neutral nude color that goes beautifully with all your daytime, natural makeup looks.
Not to be confused with “Nude,” Nude Pink is a delicate, pared-down pink that looks so sweet and natural, it’s often out of stock and hard to find.
Bella is a gorgeous deep pink with a neutral undertone. The swatches on this one are deceptive; look for images where people are wearing the stain to get a better sense of how dramatic the shade is. Bella is another one of Lipsense’s most popular shades.
This shade is a deep wine that is perfect for fall and winter, or evening looks all year long.
If you are just getting started with LipSense, here are a couple more things you may want to add to your toolkit.
While we love the fact that these lip stains last and last, we may not ALWAYS want them to last that long. With this lip color remover formulated specifically for LipSense, you can instantly lift your lip color without drying or damaging your lips. It can work to correct mistakes right away, or to remove your lip stain after several hours of wear.
While the LipSense color lasts forever, the gloss wears off more quickly. With this gloss, you can refresh your finish without disturbing your color, or wear it alone as a moisturizing lip gloss for healthy hydration. You can also get this gloss in matte finish.

How to Get Started with LipSense
For those just getting started with Lipsense, the full catalog of over 80 shades can be a bit overwhelming. Not every shade will suit every person.
So, here is a quick guide to getting started.
Know Your Skin’s Undertone
We all know our skin tones, the shades ranging from pale to light that are our dominant skin color.
But we all also have an undertone, the skin color quality that helps makeup complement our skin and achieve a true match.
Undertones can be warm, cool, or neutral, and it’s important to know what yours are. For a quick way to tell what your undertones are, look at your wrists.
If your veins at your wrists are blue or purple, you have a cool undertone.
If the veins are more of a green color, you have a warm undertone.
And ff the shades are mixed from blue to green, you have a neutral undertone.

Complement Your Blonde
Just like skin tones, blonde hair can have warm, cool, or neutral undertones.
You could have the warm, honey blonde of Blake Lively, the icy blondes favored by Margot Robbie, or the neutral, ash-blonde typically worn by Julianne Hough.
Once you figure out what shade of blonde hair you have, you’re one step closer to getting the right lip color!
Choose Your Finish
LipSense stains typically come with frost, matte, or shimmer finishes.
While it’s a common makeup rule that matte lipsticks should be avoided by more mature women since they are drying, and therefore can cause more lines to appear on the lips, that rule isn’t set in stone. You can choose the finish you like best.
Just remember that, no matter what your age, a lip stain looks best on healthy lips. Exfoliate your lips regularly, and use a great moisturizer or lip balm between stains.
Don’t be Shy
Because these are stains, they blend with your own skin tones, so every shade looks slightly different on every individual.
Don’t try to match your lip color: Try to augment it.
The best Lipsense colors for beginners are one or two shades darker than your natural lip color, and you can get bolder out from there.
Does it make (Lip)Sense?
Lip stains are a great way to finish your look with a waterproof lip color that lasts all day without touchups, through meals and kisses and everything else you put your lips through. These LipSense colors are a beautiful way to complement blondes of all types and tones, and the full LipsSense catalog has even more fun shades to explore.
