Makeup Series: Lipsticks & Lip Gloss for WOC

I know I missed last week of the makeup series, and for that I really do apologize.  I do.

I was on vacation and I was so busy with family plus I didn’t bring my laptop to Vegas because I wasn’t too sure about the place I would be staying and how safe it would be to have a laptop there.

Anyways, this might be a short one but I wanted to share my favourite lip glosses and lipsticks that suit darker skin tones.

NYX Butter Gloss in Ginger Snap & Praline

Anyone who knows me knows I fuck with the NYX Butter Glosses hard, my go to shade is Praline which I wear like everyday.  But thinking about it, is it the perfect nude for MY skin tone, but if we are taking anyone darker, Ginger Snap is perfect as it is a nude brown colour.  The NYX Butter Glosses have a bomb ass formula and I just love them.  Just so you know Praline is on the left and Ginger Snap is on the right.

MAC Taupe Lipstick


I think this is a Satin finish lipstick if I am not mistaken but this shade is the perfect nude for women of colour, of course you should pair it with a brown lipliner because lets face it brown lipliner is that bitch that you need in your life.  Either way, the days that I want to wear lipstick this is what I go for, I literally keep it in my purse which means this is my go to.

MAC Verve Lipstick


We have another Satin, I don’t even know how to describe the colour of this lipstick, I want to say its a mauve brown type of colour but let me tell you it looks bomb and you don’t even need to pair it with a lipliner.

Essence Barley there Lipstick


Essence is a very affordable makeup brand that in Canada is sold at Shoppers Drug Mart & Superstore.  Barley there is a nice mauve brown lipstick and paired with a lipliner it is perfect.  The lipstick is also very lightweight.

Colourpop Tansy


I wanted to mention a few more of the Colourpop liquid lips but I honestly didn’t see certain ones on the site which makes me believe that they no longer sell that specific colour, which is upsetting but apart of life.

Either way, Tansy is a nice brown satin liquid lip which means it is not drying which is a #blessings

I told you guys I wouldn’t have much considering most of the time I just throw on my NYX Butter Gloss and call it a day, but I hope these suggestions help someone? Maybe? Who knows.
