Even those who are not much into makeup will have a shade or two lipsticks lying around in their purse or dressing table. Such is the power of this tube that it alone can transform your whole look. Here, we talk about 5 lip shades that are for a keepsake as they never go out of style.
A classic red never goes out of style and works wonders to amp up your look. It has stood the test of time in the glamour world from yesteryear star Marilyn Monroe to today’s Bollywood divas (think Sonam Kapoor in Veere di Wedding) donning it. We suggest picking one from the Lakme’s Enrich Satin Lip Color range that has been a favourite among Indians and still is leading among its contenders.
Its special formula keeps your precious lips well-moisturised and soft as satin. The hue is vibrant and lasts for a long time. Easy to apply, the lipstick’s true colour turns up in just a single coat.
Fun and feminine, such is the allure of this colour that we even have had the rock band Aerosmith dedicating a song to it! From electric hues to soft ones, you can select one that matches your personality the most.
Our pick is the Coloressence Lip Color in Peachy Pink that lends a dazzling effect to the lips. The texture is soft and gives a glossy finish. What’s more, the formula contains vitamin E, jojoba oil and licorice extracts which helps nourish the lips.
Plum may not be everybody’s shade, but once you start using it, you will get hooked. Try Lakme Absolute Sculpt Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick in Plum Spell. Perfect to plum your lips (pun intended), it is bright and full of life. The product has a high definition colour and stays for a long time. The texture is light and feels weightless. Most importantly, the composition is such that it moisturises the lips.
Carrying a neutral shade can be a challenge for many but there is a perfect nude shade for every skin tone. Whether you wish to go for a toned-down nude or an earthy rusty neutral, the brand Faces has a range of shades to suit your needs.
Faces Glam On Color Perfect Lipstick in Bare Again is a must try as it has a long staying power and soft smooth texture that glides effortlessly. It is enriched with Vitamin E, the much-needed ingredient for the beauty of lips.
