Top 10 Best Nude Lipsticks For Dark Skin

By  | 

Hi everyone and welcome to girlversusmakeup.com!

I recently posted an article on the ‘best makeup for dark skin’  which I loved doing. It was fun to write and really interesting to me as somebody who has struggled with finding the color for my skin tone for years, to take a minute a realize it’s even harder for dark skinned girls.

A few days passed and I was browsing the internet for new nude lip colors and I came across an article (I actually think it was on Tumblr but we all know I have the memory span of a fish),

This article pointed out that nude colors aren’t nude on dark skinned girls and it just struck a nerve with me. One because I never knew this and two because nothing has been done about it. So, I decided to do the top 10 nude lipsticks that actually look nude on dark skinned girls.

#1 Caramel Glace

I love this frosty brown color, it’s subtle yet will make any lips pop. It’s nude,it’s classy and a little retro. Huge thumbs up Revlon.

#2  Succumb

This nude lipstick is a sheen brown colour with a ‘pinky orangey‘ undertone. It’s a perfect color for darker skin as the tone of the lipstick really brings out the natural color of the lips. It’s also incredible smooth and full of moisturizing ingredients that allows the lipstick to glide on.

This color is perfect for girls with a caramel to brown skin tones. It’s light, it’s creamy and it looks nude. It has gorgeous undertones.

It also has over a thousand amazing reviews on amazon…

# 4 Bare It All

The reason I decided to include this lipstick is because it’s a dupe of the Mac ‘Velvet Teddy’. Which of course is one of their best nude lipsticks (in my humble opinion anyway!).

This color is nude, so if you are really dark skinned I would suggest using a lip liner so that it can pop. It’s really inexpensive and perfect for those looking a really subtle nude lip.

#5 Teddy Bare

I am going to include how much I struggled actually finding lipsticks for dark skin at the end of this post but, during my struggle I came across this gem.

Literally every single comment about this lipstick was how perfect it was on dark skin. There’s no need for lip liner or extra layers, it’s just an amazing nude lip for darker skin. It’s another MAC dupe but one that just really compliments women of color. It’s also one of the cheapest nude lipsticks I have come across!

#6 Bean There

This lipstick is a ‘brownish pink with a hint of bronze‘. It’s perfect for those with dark brown skin. It’s not the most nude color on the list but, for those with dark skin it’s a gorgeous shade, that compliments whilst being nude but also showing some color (does that make sense?).

#7  Tanned

I know i know! this isn’t a ‘lipstick’ but, I just had to include it because of the color. It’s a lipgloss but it’s a color that really compliments caramel complexion. It’s a nude with a bit of shine and if it’s a discreet color you’re looking for NYX is your gal.

#8 Pink Cognito

I know how pink it looks, I had my doubts too but once I saw it pictured on someone with a medium to dark skin tone it actually really surprised me. It doesn’t ‘pop’ it just looks natural. It’s really rich in moisturize so it won’t dry flakey.

#9 Soft Taupe

 

Top 10 Best Nude Lipsticks For Dark Skin

This color is so nice for virtually any skin tone. I love it on dark skin because it does pop and it does compliment bigger lips and darker tones. I would recommend using a brown lip liner first as it will create a slight ombre effect which will look to die for.

# 10 Caffeine Fix

Nude lipsticks for dark skin

Just like the previous nude lip color I would line the lips with a dark brown lip liner before applying. It just allows the color to stay a lot longer and to pop a bit more.

One final note:

When I started to write this article I thought it would be quite easy. I truly am so shocked at how hard it is to actually find nude lipsticks that work on dark skin tones.

Nobody seems to know anything about them and everyone seems to be drawing a blank when it comes to what looks good.

I am not crying for sympathy (although it would be gratefully accepted)  but it truly took me hours to find and research each and every lipstick I included on this list so I hope it helps at least one person!!

 

Have a great day,

Lauren. x
