Certified, unabashed lipstick addict here. If I am out of the house– ok, if I’m awake– then I am wearing something on my lips. I’ve been a lipstick addict since I was a young teen. Back in the day, I was a fan of this really amazing frosted bronze-nude Beauticontrol shade called “Nude Icing”. It made me feel sophisticated and grown up and perfectly polished. I, never having been one to stick with just one thing, counted the color “Diva” as my other favorite.
Diva was all that the name implied and more– the vampy, deep wine color brought the same drama to my lips that being a teenager brought to my life.
It’s practically my life’s work, you know, the collecting and documenting lipsticks that look incredible on brown-skinned beauties. In a world where darker skinned women don’t see themselves reflected NEARLY enough in the beauty world, it is a mantle that I wear with pride. After all, someone has to do it!
In the video below, I swatch and try on 5 of the best lipsticks for brown skin. Ranging from nude to purple to red, there is nothing but moisturizing, brilliant colorful goodness here. All of the lipsticks are from Beauticontrol’s Hydra Brilliance line so you know that you can grab your favorites from me here or by popping by the TRS shop and clicking on “Beauticontrol”.
Tell me…Which lip look is your favorite?
