Let’s be real: finding the perfect lip colour can be tricky, especially with so many options available. And for brown skin gals, the challenge becomes even greater. Not all shades flatter every skin tone, which often leads to frustration and using only one lip product every single time – because you just can’t seem to find others that compliment you.

Plus, the dreaded makeup drawer graveyard of unused lipsticks just stops you from getting more! Well, we know how that can feel, hence we’ve compiled a list of lip products that would look amazing on brown skin tones.

No more sifting through endless aisles or ending up with colours that just don’t work. Let’s find you the perfect lip product that complements your natural beauty and boosts your confidence.
