Here are my favorite neutral lipsticks that I feel look amazing on deep and dark skin. I had to break this into two parts so it wouldn’t be so long and pic heavy. I’ll update this post with the link to part 2 when it’s published. Just a heads up, I will not be reviewing the lipsticks in this post. It’s just to show how different shades can look on deep skin with and without lip liner.

Light nudes

These are the shades that I absolutely have to pair with a liner. I pair them with Nyx’s Suede Lip Liner in Downtown Beauty or Club Hopper. And no your eyes aren’t deceiving you, they are pretty much dupes for each other. This is purely accidental but it’s good to see in case the other brands aren’t available to you. Left side is without liner, right side is with.

Pinky Nudes

While the mauves look better with a lip liner, the pinky nudes here are basically my lips but better so I don’t have to pair them with a liner if I don’t want to. I can just throw these on and they look good every time. Left side is without liner, right side is with.

Other Nudes

I didn’t know what to categorize these nudes as because they’re unlike anything I have in my collection. Left side is without liner, right side is with.
