Hey guys, welcome back to my blog. For todays’ subject, we are diving into lipsticks. Now we all know a good lipstick can make your look go from a 0 to 100 in the snap of your fingers. However, finding a lipstick that doesn’t break the bank and suits Indian skin tones’ is tough. This blog will help you to know just where to start looking. Please note I am not a makeup expert just curious about trying new things.
1. NYKAA MINI MATTE LIPSTICKS
We are of course starting out with a brand known to everybody. Nykaa Cosmetics has risen its name in quite a few years due to their makeup being the best suitable option for Indian skin tone, and that said so, their lipsticks are definitely the ones that stick out from the crowd.
Nykaa lipsticks come in full and mini size. While the full-size packaging may be a little over ₹500, the mini size retails for ₹239/-. These lipsticks stay on for a full day and do not feel dry at all. They come in a variety of shades to choose and all shades being one of a kind. My favorite shades are Madras Kappi, Guwa-hottie, Jahnvi, Boho, and MumTaj.
2. NYKAA LIPS DON’T LIE! LINE & FILL LIP LINER
To be honest, I never knew what lip-liners do until I purchased one. The best decision I made was making Nykaa’s lips don’t lie lip-liner the first lip-liner I purchased. This holds so much pigment and it helps line your lips really well. It does not dry and crack your lips nor does it fade away even after having greasy food. On days where I don’t particularly feel that good, I gravitate towards this liner because I know I will not have to re-apply it too often. My favorite shades are Pillow fight, and Chocolate boy.
These lip-liners retail for ₹350/- and you can get yours at https://www.nykaa.com/nykaa-lips-don-t-lie-line-fill-lip-liner/p/365387?pps=1&productId=365387&ptype=product&skuId=365383
3. NYKAA SO CREME! CREAMY MATTE LIPSTICK
These lipsticks are a recent launch of Nykaa Cosmetics and they are exactly how the name applies, so creamy! They hold a ton of pigment and smell amazing, even though the smell does not linger at all. They come in a very cute bullet form in which the packaging matches the lipstick shade. My favorite shades are You’re latte, Break a leg, and Daydreaming (which is a stunning dupe of the E.L.F Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Ravishing Rose)
4. LAKME 9 TO 5 MATTE LIP COLOR
These lipsticks honestly have the most gorgeous packaging and really vibrant colors. They do fade off after eating or prolonged wear but they don’t leave your lips chapped. A bonus tip for these lipsticks, you can use them as a cream blush and they will give you a rosy flush. These retail for ₹500/-. My favorite shades are Rose Bliss and Caramel cut.
5. LAKME FOREVER MATTE LIQUID LIP COLOR
Lakme is a well-known brand here in India, so when they came out with a matte lipstick in a good price range I was over-the-moon. These lipsticks really give you a forever matte look without making your lips look dry and feel chapped. These lipsticks give you a whopping 12 hours of use and still look as if you just applied them (even after greasy food). The best part, they retail for ₹295/-. My favorite shades are Mauve fling and Red Sangria.
6. MYGLAMM LIT LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK
Last but not the least, MyGlamm Liquid lipsticks. These have honestly been a game-changer for me so clearly I did not want to leave these out. These lipsticks have lasted me through a day of continuous talking and eating. When I received these in the mail, I swatched the shades on my arm and they did not budge for 2 days and need an oil cleanser to get them fully off. I was honestly shocked by the longevity and pigmentation. One stroke was all it took to coat my top and bottom lip. These retail for ₹395/- and my favorite shades are Ship, Micro-cheating, DM Slide, and Hook up (I know, weird names).
