5 Brown Girl Friendly Nude Lipsticks to Try Right Now! (Pick Out Your Favorite Shade)

Though we love a good bold red lip, we also love to opt for the smoky eye and  nude lip look  from time-to-time. But when you’re a toasty shade of almond, you can’t really rock some of the “nude” colors touted by mainstream outlets. So while there are many ways to get a perfect brown girl friendly nude lip (the easiest is to pat a dab of your concealer on your lips and then finish with gloss), we’ve found five lipsticks to try based on your complexion.

Fall in love with a shade made just for your skin tone! 



If your complexion is close to Rihanna’s, try MAC Lipstick in Half N’ Half, $15 at MAC Cosmetics.

    mac photo and revlon Chocolate velvet are awesome nudes for milk chocolate ladies (or even gents!)

  • Papillon

    Too many ads! Too much clutter! Making us click on an ad after every slide? Really? I gave up which is too bad because I really wanted to see all the lipsticks.

    I will have to look for the Black Opal Lip Corrector and buy it when I find it.

    OMG  i’m so glad you mentioned Rhi Rhi. 
    she’s who inspired me to purchase MAC’s Prolongwear in Boss Brown.  After that I bought the Prolongwear in Lishious, because my girlfriend said that Boss Brown did not give me as much brightness.  they are both pretty and nude-ish.

    I am about 3 shades darker than Rhianna and MAC’s half & half is one of my fav nudes. I think that is a good color for any WOC

      Why even mention someone you’re THREE shades darker than….?! Just reference someone who is your f u c k i n g color, you idiot.
