I’ve been on the search for a “natural” colored lipstick for daily wear and put on without a mirror. I usually love red or purple lipstick, but I’ve decided to start going for a more “mature” look, I guess since I’ve been job searching.
I knew there were a lot of MAC lipsticks that were suggested so I did an internet dupe search and found a couple. I’m of a nude complexion; I appear tan all year because of my skin tone, but I would say I’m light-medium. Here’s some foundations for reference:
MAC MSF Natural Medium Dark: This is a touch too dark for me, but the medium light is far too light for me so I’m somewhere in between there.
L’Oreal True Match Lumi N3 Natural Buff: For a neutral color I feel like this is very warm toned, but it matches darn near perfect. I wouldn’t get a warm color even though I’m warm toned.
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation 250 Natural Beige: I could almost go a shade up in this and I might in the future if I need to.
The lipstick I’ve found that is MLBB is Revlon Colorburst Lipstick Rosey Nude! I found them on Amazon though. It’s a little bit darker than my lips, but I’m OK with that. I also went into my CVS and these lipsticks were 75 percent off! So I bought two more as back ups. I think some of these may be discontinued soon, so go look in stores ASAP. I’ve tried the Nicely Nude shade and it’s far too light for me. The other lipstick I found is Rimmel Lasting Finish from the Kate Collection in 08. This is a little lighter and closer to my lips, but I like the Revlon finish better.
I hope this helps out someone looking for a bargain and basic lipsticks.
