Finding the right kind of brown and n*de lipsticks for dark complexions is tough. They are most of the times too light and often wash out on dusky skin. I have dusky skin and it took years to do my research and find the right shades for myself. In this post, I will share 1o brown and n*de shades for dusky divas. They are of various formulas and undertones. Most of them are easily available in India and you can easily find your pick.
1. Colorbar Ginger Bread Matte Touch Lipstick: This is a gorgeous shade with equal parts of warm red and brown. This is a very comfortable matte lipstick that glides on smoothly and settles down to give a creamy matte finish.
2. Colorbar Brunette Matte Touch Lipstick: Here is another lipstick from the same range and formula wise, it is similarly comfortable. This one is a little less red than the other one. This is more of a chocolate brown shade that looks great for daily use.
3. Lotus Makeup Ecostay Butter Matte Lip Color Wicked Brown: This is a beautiful warm brown color that suits all makeup, skin tones, and occasions. It is much like “Gingerbread” lipstick, but due to the formula, it looks pretty different. The formula is very lightweight and buttery. It feels like nothing on the lips and keeps the lips soft throughout the day.
4. L.A. Girl Spicy Matte Flat Velvet Lipstick: Here is a nutty brown shade with bluish red undertone. This looks pretty neutral on everyone and great for daily sue. It has a waxy matte texture that stays on forever. It you are a fan of very matte formulas, you will surely love this one.
5. Sugar Cosmetic Plush Hour Matte Lipstick – 02 Teaker Bell: This is a dusty, rosy, pinkish brown shade, which will be a great MLBB shade for dusky women. If you are searching for daily wearable shade, grab this one now. It is super pigmented and covers the most pigmented lips too. This one too is very matte.
6. NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick Beauty Mark: If you are looking for a liquid lipstick, a n*de brown shade, you can give this shade a try. This is a neutral brown that will be a nude shade for dusky women. You can intensify it by using it with dark brown lip liner or use it as it is. You can also use it to balance out the pinks and peaches that wash you out.
7. Inglot HD Lip Tint Matte 18: Here is a luxurious liquid brown lip tint with hint of shimmer in it. It looks beautiful on the lips and stays intact for hours. This can be your new favorite color for the upcoming festive season. It gives complete opaque coverage and looks great with any kind of outfit.
8. Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner Expresso: A deep brown lip liner is must in everyone’s stash. However, lip liners are not versatile and there are specific colors that work on dark skin. This one form Lakme is an intense, deep, neutral brown pencil that lines the lips amazingly well and goes well with brown and blue toned red lipsticks. It also allows you to create nice ombre effects. It can be worn on its own too.
9. Lotus Makeup Ecostay Creme Lip Definer Choco Twist: This is a lighter brown lip liner that works well with warm shades of brown. This has a soft, buttery formula. It will go best with the butter matte lipstick from Lotus mentioned earlier. It can be worn on its own too.
10. MAC Lip Glass Beaux: I will end this post with a beautiful neutral, peachy brown lip gloss that looks great on its own and also on other lipsticks. It is a kind of nude that looks great on dusky skin and does not wash out. It keeps the lips soft and as it is sticky, it lasts longer than any other lip glass.
