These Beauty Products Are The Best Response To A “Send Nudes” Text

By Megan Decker

Sexting — the dirty, flirty millennial version of foreplay. It’s all well and good if you’re having fun, but most of the time, a “send nudes” text from someone we hardly know inspires us only to take off one thing: the number… from our contacts list.

But if you’re feeling creative, a naked pic request can be a prime opportunity to show off your sense of humor (they should probably know there’s a whole lot more to you than your fire birthday suit). Any fan of a good meme has probably seen the quippy response one girl sent to a guy sexting her: Instead of sending actual nudes, she snapped “nude” beauty products, which is far more clever than the middle-finger emoji.

Ahead, the sexiest stripped-down beauty products to stock up on before your next Bumble exchange.

BareMinerals recently released a lip trio cheekily named “Send Nudes.” With peach, beige, and mauve shades, you can choose the one that’s closest to your skin tone. (We wish we had these for our nipple lipstick challenge…)

BareMinerals Send Nudes, $28, available at Ulta Beauty.

This NYX liquid lipstick was the product sent in the OG nude text meme, and we know why. Name aside, the nude is the perfect your-lips-but-better shade.

NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick, $6.99, available at Ulta Beauty.

Sephora came out with a whole kit that pays homage to the trend. Pop on one of the colors and send over a snap of your nude lips (the PG version, that is).

Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip, $28, available at Sephora.

These Urban Decay highlighters — from the brand’s Naked Skin collection — leave your visage looking nude, only glowier.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Highlighting Fluid, $28, available at Urban Decay.

Nudestix’s all-over face color in “in the nude” is the equivalent of ” clothing makeup optional.”

Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color Matte in In The Nude, $30, available at Sephora.

Naked Princess makes a lip gloss that promises to plump lips and deliver a glossy, naked look. Our advice? Slide it on for a dose of shiny, kissable lips in the nude, or not.

Naked Princess Naked Shine Lip Gloss, $26, available at Beauty of a Site.

Infused with smoothing shea butter and coconut oil, this body butter hydrates the skin so you’re left with soft and smooth skin when all the clothes come off.

Bliss Naked Body Butter, $20.30, available at Bliss.
