Whoever said “diamonds are Girls best friend” never owned a Pink Lipstick. The day a girl debuts into the world, we love to shower her with pretty pink and dainty surroundings. Balloons to clothes to cotton candies to even Barbie dolls, Pink colour has always been positively associated with Girls. It’s known to be a colour of charm, femininity, tenderness, sensivity.
People are often skeptical about wearing shades of red fearing either overdoing it or being doubtful on carrying it correctly. But fortunately the case is not with pinks. Irrespective of your age, colour , creed or hair , a simple flush of any pink lipstick can uplift your mood and outlook. It brings an instant rosy glow to your face. With every pink shade you can play different looks. Lighter pinks for office, neon pinks for evening cocktails, fuchsias for weddings. The deeper the pink,the more passion and energy it exhibits. The best part is experimenting with the eye makeup. Going subtle, golden, smoky or even metallic pink on the eyes goes absolutely beautiful with any pink lip shade.
My skin shade is Mac NC 30, a medium fairer. Personally am in awe of all pink lipsticks but still there are few I swear by. I am wrapping out the best ones suitable for Indian skin from my stash. My base and eye makeup will be the same for all different lipsticks.
Pink Alert POW4 (Maybelline)– Its my flamingo colour. Pink Neon with super smooth texture and easy to apply. It’s best for night cocktails and disco parties due to its fluorescent properties. You can easily build up the intensity with more swipes.
Price 425 INR
Mac Relentlessly Red – More than reds this lipstick has darker undertones. It comes under bright corals with matte finish. It’s heavily pigmented and like any other Mac lipsticks you don’t need to touch up for few hours. You should apply lip balm as it becomes a bit dry on your lips.
Price: 1450 INR
Stay With Me Coral (Maybelline)– The 14 hour claim for this lipstick is true to its word. It’s so long lasting that it’s difficult to remove its remnants after washing your face. The colour is pooping coral with amazing fragrance like a lip balm. Super bright colour with super texture. Highly recommended.
Mac Impassioned – I couldn’t find this in India so specially bought it from US. Yes am in so love with this beauty. From the Mac lipstick collection every girl should buy this particular lippie for her stash. The shade is a bit similar to relentlessly red but different in texture. This one is super smooth n glossy. A must buy.
Pure Amaranthe (L’Oreal)- This beauty is from the L’Oreal color rich star collection. It’s a fuchsia bright pink which i believe is suitable for any skin tone. Not just the shade but also the texture is out of the world. This one is my most comfy lipstick. This range is created specifically under pure reds but it gives reddish pink tone.
Price: 995 INR
