Nude lipsticks for dark skin tones are easy to find when you’re an avid fan of Mac Cosmetics! Mac Cosmetics make up over 80 percent of my staple makeup stash and for good reasons. Their cosmetics are high quality, and they are so far the only cosmetics line (that I know of) that seems to cater to a broad array of complexions.
I, of course, love their lipsticks and purchase at least 1 (read 1 to 2) new lipsticks per month. Let’s just say I have many favourites because these guys are good at creating fantastic lipstick colours with some serious pigment. Recently, I’ve been experimenting with nude lipsticks for dark skin tones. But here’s the thing – I have a lot of pigment on my lips (which I love most of the time) so finding a nude lipstick and keeping it nude can be quite an undertaking. But with the help of the wonderful makeup artists at Mac Cosmetics store, we were able to find some amazing hues of pink and brown (-ish) lipsticks for me to take home. Presenting Mac nude lipsticks for darker skin tones – Modesty, Stone, and Ramblin´ Rose. I have tried them all for some time now, and I must say I love Modesty and Stone.
Stone – This is a gorgeous matte nude lipstick for dark skin tones. It’s creamy, very moisturising and has an excellent amount of pigment. It also looks a lot like my natural lip colour which might explain why it was the easiest choice for me.
Modesty – Lovely delicate nude pink that’s easy to apply even without a lip liner. I have this one in my handbag and use it almost every day. I highly recommend it!
Rambling Rose – Am not so sure about this one. You see, Ramblin Rose is a ‘frost’ lipstick. Frost lipsticks have this weird ‘floaty’ feel to them. It kind of feels like the lipstick isn’t sticking at all when in fact it is sticking. Does that make any sense? Difficult to explain. I’ll give it a chance, but I don’t think I’m a frost lipstick kind of girl.
Taraji P. Henson VIVA GLAM III – Ok, this is not a nude, but I thought I would include it anyway because it’s not too far from nude (and I just loved the classic raspberry fuchsia look). It’s not one that I would wear every day, but I think it’s a lovely colour for special occasions.
Have you tried out any of these shades yet?
