It’s 2019 and flattering nude lipsticks for deeper skin tones are still hard to come by. Too often misses than hits, nude lipsticks on brown and olive skin are either too orange or too grey. Since looking like you’ve been kissed by death or washed out is not a cute look, we’ve put together a list of the best nude lip products that complement the melanin in our skin.

Described as a muted, medium coral, Fenty Beauty’s S1ngle is made to flatter all skin tones. The lipstick goes on opaque with a satin-to-matte finish while feeling lightweight on the lips.
