UPDATED: 6 LIPSTICKS FOR DARK SKIN

IMG_6905-1Hello Ladies!

I’ve done a similar post to this in the past, but here’s an updated version. These are 6 tested and trusted lipsticks for darker skinned ladies. A lot of women of colour still complain about “shades/colours not suiting them” but I beg to differ. I love lipsticks, I wear them everyday I wear makeup (Yes I do). I don’t like lip gloss and I just wouldn’t wear it alone, i.e without a lipstick/Lipstain base. These Lipsticks are colours I wear myself, so fear not lol.

1. Sleek Papaya punch: This lipstick is coral-orange, it’s really rich and I love the way it applies smoothly. It also serves as a good gradient when applied in the middle of a purple lipstick.

2. MAC Ruby Woo: Any makeup lover knows the wonders of a red lipstick. It’s a deep yet vibrant red, although a little drying but it’s nothing lip balm can’t solve. Apply prior to application.

3. Sleek Mystic : I love purple lipstick and after MAC heroine, this comes next. It’s not a dupe for heroine but it serves as a good purple lipstick. Velvety and smooth too.

4. MAC Fixed on drama: Amazing colour! it’s like cocoa, pink and burgundy had a baby. Very pigmented and looks great on both dark and fair skin.

5. MAC Flat out fabulous: My favorite lipstick in the world. End of discussion

6. Kate Rimmel nude : This lipstick leans more to brown than a pink nude. I like it on days when I’m wearing a natural look. A little lip-liner and gloss over it and you’re good to go.

Hope this helps you when next you’re in the makeup aisle, but remember! no matter how great a product is, application is what matters.

All lipsticks mentioned in this post are my personal favourites, Do let me know yours! I’d really love to know … I love to mix colours to create a gradient, ombre or even a new colour.

My amazing friend Kemi A.k.a Peachy Kemog (Remember her wedding post HERE) watched it and tuned me in via Skype (she literally turned her phone to the Tv). I was so excited! My family is here currently so we all watched it together. I don’t think I would ever get used to it lol.

I’d be showing once Every week till year end so you can catch me every Tuesday/wednesday at 5:30 pm, with reruns at 8:30pm, 11:30pm and 11:30am the next day on EL NOW, Channel 165 DSTV.
