We Tried The Same Lipsticks On Different Skin Tones

Lipsticks for all.

We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

If you've ever worn lipstick you will know that it's not universal. You've see the colour on the model, you've seen the colour in real life, you've even seen it on your mate, yet it looks slightly different on you.

So we decided to put six budget lipsticks to the test, to see what they look like on different skin tones.

These colours and lipstick brands were picked because they are cheap and can be found on your local high street.

1. Rimmel The Only One Lipstick Naughty Nude, £6.99

2. Max Factor Colour Elixir Matte Bullet Lipstick Blush 25, £7.99

3. Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick Fire & Ice, £7.99

4. Sleek Lipstick True Colour Vamp, £4.99

5. L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paint 207 Wuthering Purple, £6.99

6. Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lip Cream Apricot Blooms, £4.99

These four ladies – Natalya, Ailbhe, Gena, and Remee – are the willing testers.

First up: the Rimmel The Only One Lipstick Naughty Nude.

Next, the girls tried the Max Factor Colour Elixir Matte Bullet Lipstick in Blush 25.

Then the Revlon Superlustrous Lipstick Fire & Ice was put to the test.

Up next, the Sleek Lipstick True Colour in Vamp.

Next the L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paint 207 in Wuthering Purple.

Finally the girls tried a wild card shade: the Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lip Cream in Apricot Blooms.
