I’ve always had issues with finding proper lipsticks, my lips are different colors so a muddy looking lipstick application is usually the norm. But last year, I bit the bullet and started buying MAC’s lipsticks and in my opinion they have some of the best lipstick for darker skin. I always heard people talk about using MAC, but being a newbie at makeup I didn’t want to spend $16 (now $17 *cough, cough*) on a single lip product. But now I know, when it comes to make up, sometimes you get what you pay for.
My favorite lippie of all time is Sin. It’s a vampy, reddish-brown, that doesn’t dry my lips out, so it’s been getting a lot of wear. If you see me in any post or video with a dark lip 9 times out of 10 this is probably it! Not only is this a perfect lipstick for darker skin, but I think it flatters most complexions.
I’ve also recently purchased Taupe. It’s a deep nudish-pink color on my skin and I really like that it makes my lips even in color on those days I want to go for a nudish tone.
Other Lipstick for Darker Skin
My final two favorite colors, are Ruby Woo and Film Noir. Everyone probably has this bright bluish-red in their arsenal already, but film noir is a creamy dark brown, with burgundy undertones, perfect for the fall time.
I’ll definitely be adding more MAC colors to my collection, as I love the pigmentation, smell and texture of their formula.
Do you have any lip brands that you love? If you have darker lips, I’d also love to hear your recommendations on any brands or colors you think I should try out. If you’re interested in seeing more makeup tips and my favorite brands check out my post on my favorite inexpensive eyeshadows.
