It is often very difficult to get a nude/natural lipcolour, if you’re black/dark skinned. The range of colours out there aren’t great and at a lower price point nigh impossible. Too beige, too pink ( you end up looking like you’ve dipped your lips in flour) and for me, someone with dark pigmented lips, plain odd looking. I searched high and low and found my holy grail! Nicka K lipstick in Almond. Looked nice and natural,  brightened me up and low and behold, it was discontinued. *can we please have a moment of silence?*

So i’ve been looking high and low and though i haven’t found a exact replica i have managed to mix and match the below swatches to some degree of success. For anyone looking for a nice nude, check it out
