Nude Lip For A Black Girl: My Favorite Nude Lipstick




Ever look at a guru on youtube and see them wear a nude lip, then say well, they're not my complexion or they're not of African decent so this color wouldn't look right on me. Or ever just feel like black women can not rock a nude lip? Well....WRONG!!! lol We fabulous ladies can rock a nude lip! I searched and searched in the drug stores for an affordable nude lipstick (cuz y'all know I'm cheap lol) and I never found it. I also bought a few from NYX cosmetics but it's kinda hard when I didn't know if the lipstick was sheer or glittery (eww!) and it ended up being a fail. I finally loosened up on my pockets and sprung for MAC cosmetics. I don't have a MAC store or counter in my nearest vicinity so I had to take a gamble on their website. The MAC website makes it easy to look for colors because they go into great detail about how the colors look. I finally decided on a lustre called Fresh Brew (in pic at the top). this is a nice creamy beige color. It reminds me of how I take my coffee, lots of cream lol. I saw a couple of youtube videos of women of color buying nude lipsticks and the ones I've seen used warm nudes and I'm clearly a cool toned woman. I loved it! It's my favorite lip color and I usually wear it when I don't have anything else to wear. My only complaint is that the tube is so small compared to drug store brands. I'm greedy I know, but when you pay 14 dollars for something you tend to want to get your money's worth. lol Anyways, it looks great by itself or paired with a lip gloss which i used NYX mega shine lip gloss in taupe. Go out there and find your perfect nude lip!

Wearing a nude color is something I've never considered. It looks great on you. I might take your advice and try this. Thanks for the inspiration.

I don't have the intention to offend you, but maybe the nude look isn't working for you. The purpose of nude lipstick is to have a natural, glowing look, while you look like you just put way too much on. Either you're putting on the lipstick wrong, or you really need to take that back. Please consider this.

That is NOT a nude lip! Nude is almost bear with the smallest hint of color. That lip is more like the 60's and 70's trend of POP color. This is not what most African American or Dark Skinned females are asking for.

Honestly, you look like you just ate a powdered doughnut. You should go to the MAC store and get a different color.

I think a more brownish nude would be prettiest on you, or a mocha. The "Fresh Brew" washes you out dear. Just saying as I'm a makeup artist (and woman of color, Brazilian/african/Eastern european.
