Re: neutral peachy/pinky nude lips for darker skin

as you can see I'm dark-skinned. I just bought Yves Saint Laurent's Rouge Pur Lipstick in 147 and I love it. It is exactly that peachy-nude color I've been searching for AGES!!!

Try it out and see if you like it.

Also, don't cancel out Clinique lipsticks, their formulas are vast and all very nice. Also Sephora Lip attitude lipsticks. Decent price and good color payoff.


Good Luck!

I would recommend NARS Super Orgasm gloss. It goes on very sheer.

Urban Decay Lipstick comes in a beautiful light peachy shimmer called "Indecent" that I think would work great with your skin tone.  You can take a look at it at:

If you've never used UD Lipstick, it is absolutely wonderful!  It's soft, creamy, moisturizing and long lasting, too!

I hope this helps you. 🙂

I agree with Katie, Cruising is a really good nude, and it's buildable for more colour.  


From Kat Von D, I would suggest Celebutard (nude peach beige) and Lovecraft (berry beige).  They are both really great, and they're very moisturizing.


MUFE has a really good Lipstick Finder, that will match your perfect pinks, red, and nudes, to your skin tone and hair colour.  You might want to check it out:

Re: neutral peachy/pinky nude lips for darker skin

If you have darker skin, I would use a nude with a hint of pink in it, such as NARS Cruising (which is sheer, so it can be layered for more color: Bobbi Brown has a great range of nudes, too -- I would check out Brown (medium pink brown), Brownie (pink brown), or Nude (medium brownish pink). If you live near a Bobbi Brown counter, you could always try the shades on before buying (
