My Favorite Nude Lip For Dark Skin

I  mentioned earlier this year that I wanted to start incorporating a little bit of beauty talk on the blog. I'm by no means a beauty guru, I don't do huge beauty hauls (I can't remember ever spending more than 50 bucks at one time on beauty items), etc. I'm more of a lipstick lover and majority of my beauty purchases are lipsticks so that is probably what I will talk to you guys about the most.

Today I want to talk about the best nude (in my opinion) that I've found for women of a darker complexion like mine. The struggle to find the perfect nude was a long time coming for me because I don't care for nudes that remind me of David Chappelle's Tyrone Biggums character.

You definitely don't want that look going on so I had been on the hunt for a brown color that looks more like MY brown. The beauty world of course had all been raving about Salem liquid lipstick by Limecrime but 1. I'm not a big liquid lipstick girl YET 2. Limecrime has been in the news for some very disturbing reasons and I have decided not to purchase from them ever again.  I was in the MAC store looking for an eyeshadow when this brown stood out to me.

It's called Photo and it's a smooth earthy burnt caramel shade. I think it would look good on every skin-tone. I like it alone but I like it best paired with Chestnut liner also from MAC. If you are looking for a good nude that's actually nude on dark skin I would highly suggest it. I haven't found a drugstore dupe for it yet but the NYX expresso lipliner is the exact same color as MAC's chestnut liner if you are on a tight budget.  Here are some photos of me wearing the color Photo. I was also wearing it in my last blog post if you want to see it with a better quality camera...these are Iphone pics.

I hope this helped any of you looking for a pretty brown lippie. I will be back with more lipcolors soon. I rarely buy more than one at a time so don't count on any beauty hauls. 

Until Next Time,
