Having an incredible amount of lipstick options to choose from is never a bad thing. But sometimes, the lipsticks we actually use from our makeup kits can be counted on the fingers of two hands. So it’s probably a good idea to set aside (or give away) those products and make space for shades you would often wear. While reds are a great color to boost your confidence, we always find ourselves reaching for nudes, peaches, and pinks. Bust most of the time, one shade could look amazing on your sister yet look totally appalling on you. But what if we told you that there are a few shades that universally flattering on all women?
Below, check out 12 lipsticks that suit any skin tone—whether you’re fair, tan, or dark.
