MAC Everyday/Neutrals: Best Lipsticks for My Darker Indian Skin Tone (Swatches)

Best Must-Have MAC Makeup Neutral Nude Everyday Lipsticks for NC45 Darker Indian Skin Tone
Must-Have MAC Lipsticks - Everyday/Neutral Lipsticks for My Darker Indian Skin Tone

The perfect nude/neutral lip color would, of course, vary depending on each person's skin tone, but for me this is just any lipstick that is close to my natural lip color, doesn't wash me out, and/or be a lip color that I could wear any time - be it work or just a simple day out.  This weekend, since none of the counters at my local Nordstrom seemed to have any of the products that I was looking for, I played around at the MAC counter and swatched a few of the MAC lipsticks that I think would be my perfect neutrals and got some swatches to share!


Note:  I haven't bought any of these lipsticks - only swatched them.  I don't use MAC foundation/bases, but I have been told I would be a NC45-ish.  What would be a perfect neutral lipstick might not be the ideal for someone else. Disclaimers aside, I do hope the swatches are helpful.

  3. Rads have you heard of MAC's Middle Eastern collection which features Yash, Mehr, Doubleshot, and Tabla? These are four nudes for our skin tone. I believe you can still pick them up online, but unfortunately they're only available at a few stores in North America.
    I just wore Freckletone last week and was very happy with it. A MUA tried Pure Zen on me as well. It looked good with gloss, but I preferred Freckletone a bit more.
