  1. hi tanya, in my experience the right nude may be diff for diff people…it depends on ur natural lipcolor, if u have pigmented lips, etc,,,alot of ppl mistake a light brown to be nude but that may not be so for everyone..ive learnt this from trial and error…my current fav nudes are MAC Cosmo and MAC see sheer…

  2. To me perfect nude is a peachy brown nude..Faces Go chic in Hazelnut suits me to the T.. Infact i’m dying to get its dupe in colorbar or maybelline c.s. :/

  3. I second aditi,i too love peachy brown nudes..i love maybeline my mahogany and lakme enrich the problem with lakme 133 z d low staying power.cud anyone suggest me a gud dupe with longer stayng power..

  4. And aditi..i think maybelline crazy for coffee is kind of similar to faces hazelnut.kind of looks similar on me.please do swatch it..

    • Thanks a ton Sherin..i’m hell confused between Crazy for coffee,My Mahogany, and Colorbar cream cup..but they are all more pinky than peachy I guess :/

  5. Peachy browns and peachy ~brow ny~pinks, I think flatter Indian skin tones most…. Ask the SA too swatch on lips, rather than hands. Stand infront of a mirror, under white light .All stores usually use yellow light,which is actually quite misinterpreting while selecting shades. Many times I have picked up wrong color just because it looked flattering in the store!

    Shade Suggestion :-
    Streetwear : Rosewood
    Colorbar- Bare, Cremecup
    Faces- Fig, Hazelnut
    Maybelline Colorsensational : My Mahogany
    Lakme : Lip love Aphrodite Blush (my fav this moment!)
    Revlon : Colorburst in Blush
    MAC : Hug Me

    Hope it helps ! 😀
