Top Brown N*de Lip Shades for Dusky Skintone | Everyday Lip Shades For Medium Deeper Indian Skin Tone | N*de Must Haves | Swatch + Mini Review | Guide for Perfect N*de Lipstick

If I were to answer the most trickiest question that people ask me, it has to be “Please suggest a nude colour that will suit my skin tone.” Truth be told, I am myself unsure when it comes to nude lip colours for me. Online swatches do not help much, since every individual has a different undertone apart from that fact that our lips are also pigmented. However, I have listed some lip colours, both liquid as well as lipsticks, both affordable as well as high-end brands, so that you get an idea of the brown/n*de lip colours that might suit the Indian dusky skin tone.

This is both a swatch and a mini review post. Hope this helps you all.

For reference, I am Mac NC 45. My foundations are

  • Mac Matchmaster SPF 15 in the shade 7.0
  • Maybelline Fit me (Matte + Poreless) Shade 330 (Toffee Caramel)
  • Make Up For Ever Ultra HD FOundation in R-430
