Best Lipsticks For Brunettes With Cool Olive Skin

Why Are These The Best Lipsticks For Cool Olive Skin?

If you have olive skin with cool undertones these three lipstick shades are going to be the perfect place for you to start. Your makeup bag won’t be complete without a pink-berry, mauve, and for a bolder choice a beautiful red. We’ve gone into detail about each shade below, but for now let’s talk WHY.   

When choosing lipsticks for someone with a similar look as Ashleigh pictured here, we’re really focused on enhancing features. The great thing about these colors is she’ll likely be able to still wear them as her features change over time. Maybe with only slight adjustments to how bold the colors are worn. 

Let’s talk base lip color, the color your lips are with nothing on them.  This is important because our lipsticks are designed to blend WITH your natural lip color not completely cover it up.  So, these lipsticks would look different on someone who started off with a brown or purple base lip color, and may not be our first choices. 

Ashleigh’s base lip color is a nude and is slightly different than the color in her complexion.  Knowing your base lip color allows you to find lipstick shades that are just a shade deeper for a “my-lips-but-better” look – the perfect everyday lipstick for looking pulled together without any effort.  It’ll be your go-to, everyday lipstick. 

If your base lip color is anywhere in the nude range these are good choices for you.


Hibiscus – Vibrant Raspberry Color

Hibiscus is a luscious and vibrant true raspberry color. A deep, berry pink with a hint of red. This color is so amazing – it can be worn bold or as a berry stain. It is incredibly long lasting and creamy. This shade is free of glitter and frost, it has a satin finish that isn’t too glossy. It feels weightless and moisturizing.

Mayberry – My Lips But Better Shade

Mayberry is a dusty rose mauve with medium depth. It isn’t too dark or too bright…with an undertone is that of a cool toned berry. It has a slight micro shimmer to it that’s not noticeable when applied. Mayberry applies smooth and moisturizing and is highly pigmented (doesn’t apply sheer). It provides you lasting color that won’t dry out your lips. 

Rebel! – Retro Red Lipstick

Rebel! is a deep luscious blue-based red that is slightly darker than our signature Red! It is free of shimmer but full of shine. The beautiful satin finish keeps your lips looking healthy and vibrant. Rebel against neutrals and go bold! If you’re looking for a matte finish, all you need to do is blot once and this color goes from satin to matte, instantly. This is what Ashleigh is wearing in the picture above.
