Nude lip colors are a challenge for deeper skin tones. They can either be too ashy, too pink, or worse — and give the dreaded powdered donut effect.
First up, ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper, $6.
Could it be that our holy grail nude lip was right under our noses over at ColourPop AND it’s a mere SIX BUCKS! How are we just now realizing this?
NYX’s soft matte lip creams are like diet liquid lipsticks. They give the same long-lasting effects as other formulas without all the dryness. They’re only six bucks, so it’s totally worth it to grab a few other shades and get an everyday ombré going on!
For a rich hue, Colour Pop Lippie Stix in Pitch, $5.
This shade is a rich brown with a true milk chocolate color. Plus, the twist-up stick makes a lipliner almost unnecessary. Did we mention it was only five buckaroos?
Meet your new good go-to gloss, MAC Lipglass in Spite, $16.
MAC describes this as a medium taupe brown, we describe it as adorbz!
This deep beige is a little on the light side for some. Nbd, add a little Chestnut liner by MAC and you’re good to go.
If you’re in the mood for a true chocolate brown shade, ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Limbo, $6.
Okay, we have a favorite. We’re adding this chocolate brown lippie to our cart and adding a few goodies from ColourPop’s marked down holiday collection while we’re at it.
Anyone else doing a little mental math and thinking 45 bucks for all six shades isn’t too bad? Just us? Oh, okay.
