For a pink shade that stands out, reach for Box O Chocolate. This mauve hue has cool undertones and looks best on those with medium or olive skin.
SWATCH #5: BITTERSWEET
Want to hop on the brown lipstick trend but think you can’t pull off such a statement shade? Bittersweet is a light brown shade that’s perfect for those with fair skin who want to try out brown lipstick without creating too harsh of a contrast against their pale skin tone.
SWATCH #6: 70% YUM
For a rich, bold chocolate shade, look no further than 70% Yum. This hue is the definition of chocolate and is best suited for those with olive or deep skin tones!
3 TIPS FOR FINDING YOUR LIPSTICK MATCH
Now that you have a breakdown of the L’Oréal Paris Pro Matte Les Chocolats Liquid Lipsticks, you may still be unsure about your perfect lipstick shade—after all, they’re all good options. Below, find three tips and tricks that can help make your decision a little easier!
TIP #1: CONSIDER YOUR SKIN TONE
First thing’s first: keep your skin tone in mind! As a general rule of thumb (though there are exceptions to every rule), those with fair skin tones will look best with lighter lipstick shades, whereas those with darker skin tones can easily play around with bolder hues.
TIP #2: AND YOUR UNDERTONES
Your undertones also play a role in the most flattering lipstick shades for you. If you have cool undertones, look for blue or purple-based lip colors. If you have warm undertones, find a red or orange-based hue. Not sure what your undertones are? Flip your wrist and look at your veins. If they’re blue or purple, you have cool undertones. If they’re green, you have warm undertones.
TIP #3: KEEP YOUR EYE MAKEUP IN MIND
Another thing to keep in mind when searching for your match is your eye makeup! If you’re rocking a smoky eye, chances are your best bet is to wear a neutral lipstick. If you prefer a simple eye makeup look, consider taking your makeup up a notch with a bold lipstick!
