WATCH: Lipstick challenge – how to find the best nude lippy

The DESTINY team put their pouts to the test as they went hunting for the best nude lipstick shades for black women

Every woman can do with a good shade of nude lipstick. But finding just the right shade among the many tones of brown can seem almost impossible. Thankfully, DESTINY has done all the work for you and gone lipstick hunting for that perfect nude.

So how do you determine whether you’ve found a good nude lipstick?

Firstly, it should be a shade lighter or darker than your complexion so your lips are highlighted. But go a shade too light and you could end up looking like the living dead.
