Underwear for Your skin-tone

When I saw this range I thought I have to share this. For the fashion sistas struggling with having to wear nude colour underwear because you simply can’t find that perfect match to your shade. Nubian Skin is your definite go to brand. It’s been created by an incredible designer of colour for a woman of colour.

Several shades are available in both plain and lacy styles.


The darkest shade is ‘Berry’, which the brand suggests would suit women who wear foundations such as Mac NW50, Bobbi Brown Espresso 10 and Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint in Beige 90.

Here is a handy little guide for you:

You know what they say, “The darker the berry…” Berry is the darkest Nubian Skin shade. Mac NW50 Iman Earth 6 Blackup HC 14 Laura Mercier Espresso Bobbi Brown Espresso 10 Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint in Beige 90
A little bit sweet and little bit spicy, Cinnamon is our medium-dark shade. Mac N8/N9/NW45/NW47 Iman Earth 3-4 Bobbi Brown Warm Walnut Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint in Beige 80 Nars Macao

Writing on their blog, the company’s founder says, ‘My nude isn’t the nude I see in shops. Despite the reality that women of colour have the same needs as all women when it comes to lingerie and hosiery (and spend the same of their hard-earned money), the industry simply doesn’t cater to us. ‘So, I thought, it’s time to rethink the definition of nude.’ #entrepreneur
