For too long, the word "nude" has been used by both the fashion and cosmetics industries to describe a limited color range of shades with pale, pink undertones. However, over the past few years, brands are greatly diversifying the assortment of skin tone shades offered with everything from nail polish and bras to bandages.
Mented Cosmetics is one beauty brand that is also setting itself apart with its expanded collection of nude lipsticks for women with deeper skin tones. Shades include Peach Please, Brown Bare, Dark Night and Pretty in Pink, all of which are designed to suit consumers with different complexions.
In terms of the cosmetic formulas, the lipsticks are noted to be extremely moisturizing, with a commitment to vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free non-toxic and ingredients.
