Nude Lipstick Picks for WOC

I, like many Women of Colour (WOC), cringe whenever the term "nude" pops up. Nude, by definition, is related to skin tone, which sounds like a pretty universal concept, right? Unfortunately, as with pretty much everything, the standard skin tone that is used to define such a broad term falls far from one that represents my skin's melanin level. As a result, I am often left with nude selections that are about 5 shades too light and do the exact opposite of what nude lipsticks should do. I am far from a makeup expert and the thoughts I am about to share are my personal opinions; however, through discussions with friends, family and you, my followers, I've found that there is a serious need for WOC friendly nude lippies. So, I have done my research and scoured pretty much every MAC kiosk and Sephora store in the Calgary area to provide you with a diverse list of what I think are melanin loving tones to achieve that often sought after nude lip.
