Lipsticks are such an essential in all our makeup kits as they take our look notches higher just by adding a dash of color. However, there is one shade of lipstick that is super flattering on almost every skin tone that you can imagine and the good part is that every brand has its own version of it! We are talking about the color “PLUM”. We have seen our lovely Piggy Chops flaunt it and it’s a great way to break the norm from our usual nudes, which are difficult to match and often end up in blunders!! So, taking you through 10 plum lipsticks that every skin tone can rock.
