Ten Nude Lipsticks That Actually Work For Dark Skin Tones

One of the best things about being a girl is experimenting with make up. But as a black girl with a darker skin tone I often find the colors I like don’t necessarily suit me.

In particular I found that nudes and browns were especially hard to sought out when I wanted a more conservative look. The ones I tried made me look washed out and tired.

But after years of trial and error I have put together what I believe are the best nude lipsticks for dark skin that are currently on the market.

Black Opal In The Buff Lipstick


Black Opal Color Splurge In The Buff is a non – drying nude lipstick that provides long-lasting color with a matte finish.

Maybelline Touchable Taupe


I love the Maybelline ‘Buffs Lip Color’ collection. It’s creamy on the lips and matches my lip color perfectly.

Covergirl Queen Collection Mocha Lipstick


COVERGIRL Queen Collection lipstick is perfect for dark and medium skin tones. What I love about this lipstick is the moisturizing formula. It helps maintain moisture levels in your lips helping them to feel lush and smooth.

Black Opal Caramel Mousse


This highly pigmented lip gloss smoothly glides onto your lips without drying them or feeling sticky. What makes it even more amazing (apart from looking great on your skin) is that it’s packed with vitamins A, C & E.

Covergirl Queen Javalicious


Javalicious is a little bit on the pinker side, but it still compliments the darker skin tone. As always with the Covergirl collection it’s very creamy and moisturizing on the lips.

Black Opal Nude Scene


Nude Scene is on the shiny peachy side. It compliments nicely with a slightly darker liner as seen on the model.

Black Opal Bon Bon Lipstick


After looking for a perfect brown lipstick I found it in Black Opal Bon Bon. It is deliciously creamy on the lips and has an bold but natural looking pigment.

What’s your favorite nude/brown lip color?
