I'm looking for a natural/everyday lipstick for dark skin

When I say dark skin, I mean dark skin, not the Halle or Rihanna type but Jennifer Hudson dark. Lipsticks end up looking clownish on me and I'm looking for just a little color but not too bright. Can anyone help??DSC_0726.jpg

What I always do is that i find those celebrities who's skin color match mine and look at the lipsticks they pull off! And if it looks good on them, try it out! Because what can happen is that you THINK it looks clownish because your not used to the color, when in fact, it actually looks nice!

I think Revlon Lipstick in Black Cherry is very pretty. It looks a little severe in the tube, but is softer when it it is worn.

I don't know if you just want lipstick, but Tarte has some pigmented, hydrating lip stains that would look pretty with your complexion. They are pigmented, but they don't look as stark as some lipsticks, so they would be nice for a natural look.swfupload_5593102925316962672.jpg(Tarte Lipsurgence Matte Lip Tint in Hope)

Nars has some great selections, they also have some sheer finish lipsticks that are good for everyday.

Hi CaribbeanQT,

Not sure what colors you are leaning toward, but I was thinking something in the brick red family would be pretty on you.  :smileyhappy: -Laura
