Finding nude lipsticks for Indian skin tones that don’t look pale and wash out the skin tone is still a struggle. Thankfully, there are a good amount of choices available today even in the affordable category. Since I made this article keeping different skin tones in mind, remember that a lipstick which looks dark on me might be someone else’s perfect nude shade. Most lip colors have a mix of pink, peach, rose, brown and terracotta undertones.
20 nude lipsticks for Indian skin tones
Some tips which may help you pick the right nude lipstick for your skin tone:
– Don’t opt for shades that look concealer type and look pasty on you. I did that initially and found myself compensating by going by dark eye makeup and piling on bronzer. It defeats the purpose of wearing a nude lip.
– Nude lipsticks in overly matte formulas look real bad as the day progresses on. What you’re left with is an uneven finish mixed with your saliva!
– The only scenario in which a nude lipstick which goes with your skin tone still may not look good is when your lips are pigmented. So, feel free to go a shade deeper.
– If you are still struggling to get that perfect shade, don’t be afraid to mix up two lip shades. My favourite combination is wearing NYX slim lip liner ‘Nude Beige’ on top of Colourpop satin lip ‘Echo Park’.
- Avon ultra color bold lipstick ‘Bare impact’
- Revlon ultra HD matte lip color ‘Seduction’
- PAC matte lipstick 16. It performs just like PAC matte lipstick 5.
- Colorbar velvet matte lipstick ‘Bare’. I showed this in 10 office wear lipsticks for medium dark skin in India.
- Revlon super lustrous lipstick ‘Fleshtone’
- Sugar it’s a-pout time! vivid lipstick – 09 Better Call Salmon
- Colourpop satin liquid lipstick ‘Echo Park’
- NYX lip liner ‘Nude Beige. I have reviewed the shade ‘Peekaboo neutral‘.
- Colourpop lippie pencil ‘Brink’
- Faces ultimate pro creme lip crayon 05, Mochalicious
- Deborah Milano fluid velvet matte lipstick 01, Mat
- Maybelline lip polish GLAM14
- Makeup revolution lip hug ‘I think you’re amazing’
- Lakme enrich lip crayon ’09, Cinnamon Brown’
- Coloressence moisturizing lip color ‘Nude Suede’
- Faces glam on lipstick ‘Barely there’
- Colourpop lippie stix ‘Brink’
- Colourpop lippie stix ‘Parker’
- Lakme 9 to 5 ‘Red Chaos’
- Lotus crayon ‘Nude blush’
The only shade which looks unflattering on me on its own is Colourpop satin liquid lip ‘Echo Park’. But I love mixing it with other shades, even the bright ones to tone down the shine as well as colour. I just swipe it on the middle of my lips and spread it in a dabbing motion.
