Nude lipstick is a staple in every makeup kit, whether you choose to pair the subtle lip with a dramatic smoky eye, a soft glam slay or a dewy, natural look.

If you have dark skin and you’re still looking for your perfect nude, we’ve rounded up 10 nude lipstick recommendations to help you out. Keep scrolling to check out our picks that will look stunning on dark skin tones.
This deep, warm-toned brown is a perfect match for dark skin tones. The formula is long-lasting and glossy, with transfer-resistant color and shine that will last comfortably for up to 16 hours.
For a nourished, high-shine lip, reach for this gloss-meets-balm hybrid. We love the shade Cacao No Boundary, a glossy, warm-toned brown that looks as luxurious as it feels. With a blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and cold-pressed mango oils, it’s ultra-hydrating and lush.
This whipped, matte lip cream has a plush, non-drying texture that lasts throughout the day without cracking or drying out your lips. The shade Teddy Fluff is a warm, rosy brown that would look gorgeous on top of a darker lip pencil.
If you prefer a pinky-nude, we love this deep, rose-tinged brown. The satin lipstick delivers longwear, transfer-proof color and looks stunning with a nude gloss in the center.
This line of creamy lipsticks comes in 12 nude shades fit for any skin tone. The formula is silky, highly saturated and non-drying — perfect for everyday wear. We’re partial to Nu Artistique, a rich plummy brown that will look particularly striking on cool-toned dark skin.
If you can’t resist a good liquid lipstick, the Superstay Matte Ink Un-Nude Lipstick in Amazonian is a gorgeous hue that has some serious staying power. It delivers 16 hours of matte goodness, has a slight pink undertone and will look great on a range of dark skin tones.
This warm pinky-terracotta shade looks right at home on deep skin tones. These lipsticks are richly pigmented and contain hydrating hyaluronic acid and collagen to smooth lip lines.
For a peachy nude that looks like your lips with a hint of added color and shine, reach for this lipstick in the shade Slip. The satiny formula feels moisturizing and slick, thanks to ingredients like squalane, sunflower seed oil, papaya extract and raspberry oil.
This soft matte lipstick is the perfect medium-toned brown that you can dab on lightly as a stain, or layer for bold, opaque color. Infused with hyaluronic acid, it keeps lips soft and hydrated all day.
