This Is What Lipstick Shades Look Like On Different Skin Tones

Because lip colours are not universal.

You've probably noticed it by now: Lipstick shades can look different depending on your skin tone.

It's all to do with undertones: People with cool undertones have a fair skin tone, while those with warm undertones have a darker skin tone.

So to see what lipstick shades look like on various skin tones, we picked 17 different lip colours and compared them on different Instagrammers.

These colours were mainly chosen both because they are loved by beauty bloggers and because they are so pigmented.
