and now for something completely superficial, I'm just sayin'.

Nudes you can use.

I don’t always have easy access to a mall with a MAC counter. Places like Walmart are closer.

Hence, earlier this summer, this video from African Export saved me.

For some reason, I couldn’t find the mauve or red shades that she mentioned. But if you’re a medium-brown toned black woman looking for a neutral lipstick, she used a couple of great options.

Here are my current loves:
Yes, I know that in this photo they look very similar. But when you see them in real life, they’re just different enough to be two distinct colors. 

On the left: Revlon 671 – Mink. This shade is an absolute nude match for me.

On the right: Revlon 135 – Chocolate Velvet. A slightly stronger brown. When I have it on it’s more obvious that I’m wearing lipstick. Still, it’s a great neutral shade.

In the past I’ve stuck with bolder browns that say HERE ARE MY LIPS. These two colors are a pleasant alternative.
