Best Nude Lipsticks for Brown Girls | My Favorite Nude Lip Shades

Nude lipsticks have often been difficult to find, especially for someone like me with an olive complexion mixed with the fact that the beauty industry was not as inclusive back in the day. Thankfully, things are much more progressed, shade ranges are expanding and there are a ton of new beauty brands + OG companies that cater to a wider spectrum of consumers. I’ll be sharing nude lip products I absolutely am OBSESSED with that are perfect for brown girls, however, I believe most, if not all, of these would look beautiful on all skin tones. More so, I have lippies for all budgets whether you’re looking for something on the affordable side or something splurge worthy!

7 Affordable Makeup Brands | Product Hits and Misses

As a beauty enthusiast, I love trying makeup in all price ranges – luxury, high end, and drugstore. As much as I love me some luxurious and prestige beauty products, I am a huge fan of affordable makeup. Why spend $30 on a primer when you can find something that does a wonderful job for just a few bucks? Also, it’s great to be able to find affordable dupes of pricey items we’re unable to get our hands on or reason to purchase. Moreover, if you’re new to makeup or wanting to experiment with certain types of products and shades, it’s always great to test out affordable items before taking the splurge on high end products.

7 Affordable Beauty Brands To Haul + Hits and Misses

That being said, I wanted to share affordable beauty brands I absolutely love. Not only do these brands have great prices but the quality of many of their items are incredible for the cost, some even perform better than products that cost double, triple, even quadruple the price! Like any other brand, these do have products that didn’t work for me so I’ll be sharing a few misses along with the hits.
