Editor’s Favs: Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones (I)
Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones
Universal Matte Shades Edition
These shades flatter all skintones, no matter how dark or light. In the first part of this series (Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones), we are focusing on natural, matte shades.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Walkyrie”: The NARS Velvet Matte formula is unique. It feels utterly weightless, silky and hugs your lips like second skin 😍
The shade performs as a warm spice shade on fair and medium skin tones, and a tangy warm nude on darker skin tones.
Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hr Lipstick in “Lasting Chestnut”: One of my favorites! Lasting chestnut is a taupe nude shade with pink undertones (similar to MAC WHIRL). It is yet another shade that everyone can comfortably wear. For fair to medium skin tones will give a cool brown shade, whereas for darker skintones results in a stunning nude shade.
NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick in “Charmed”: Recent addition to my favorites category, Charmed is described by NYX as a “brick red with purple undertones”. On fair skintones it definitely gives that exact shade – whereas on medium skin tones it is a cross between rose and brick red. On darker skintones it performs more as a flesh nude shade.
