Kylie Jenner reveals new matte lip colors, including the perfect nude for brown skin
Her new collection of mattes are here and will be available on her site tomorrow. The shades are muted, neutral, and very, very Kylie. She showed off the shades in a manner only befitting a young makeup mogul, in a glam shoot with her besties and on Snapchat.
First up, Dirty Peach!
Seems like it’s all about peach makeup right now, amirite?
Here’s Dirty Peach on Justine and Stassie.
And on Jordyn.

Next up, Love Bite
Here’s how it looks compared to Kourt K.
… and on the entire SQUAD
Jordyn is WERRRRRKING it tho!
Last but not least, here’s the shade that’s getting the most buzz— Brown Sugar.
“I finally achieved the perfect nude for darker skin tones,” Kylie wrote on IG. “I love this shade.”
Justine looks like an F-ing goddess and the color actually looks dope on the entire squad.
Tip: you can make almost any nude shade work by highlighting and contouring your lips. Sure, it sounds like more unnecessary makeup steps but it’s not that bad. Keep a liner thats only a shade or two darker than your skin tone on deck at all times. (Mine is Cork by MAC and it’s a great place to start if you have brown skin. Chestnut and Teddy are pretty good too.)
Use the pencil to darken the corners of your lips. Then apply your matte shade. Lastly, use a semi sheer gloss in the center of your lips only. I like MAC’s Oh Baby, it’s just golden enough to soften any mattes that may come off too ashy or don’t quite compliment my skin tone. This technique will give you a plumper pout and make more nudes-that-aren’t-really-nude-at-all work for brown skin.
Who’s going to be brave enough to try to get a lip kit (or two… or three) tomorrow? May the odds be ever in your favor
Dunn, dunn, dunnnnnnn….
