best lipstick for dark lips or dark skin tones

I have dark skin. I am lucky because dark skin is now fashion, trend, and hope. Many people are tanning their skin to be more attractive by spending extra pennies but I don’t need that. I save those pennies to care for my skin. I am much passionate, especially of my lip care.

I have a collection of hundreds of lipsticks in my makeup box. I am much choosy as all shades do not look pretty with my skin. The lipstick colors that generally look cool on dark lips are copper brown, red, chocolate brown, rose pink, taupe, bronze, magenta, fuchsia, peach, nude, purple, magenta red, greenish-blue, peach, warm brown, violet smoke, warm terra-cotta, pink, dark red, and hot pink.

And all of these colors I own. Here I have also made a list of my favorite lipsticks for those women who are fighting for “BLACK LIVES MATTER”. I hope, these drugstore lipsticks will help you to pick up the right one for your NEXT JOURNEY.
