Can’t believe it’s almost the beginning of summer i.e. the torture season! I know it’s the extroverted season of salt in hair, barbecues, beaches and strappy sandals for many but for me it’s just a sweaty endurance test that goes for months. The only good thing is ice-cream! Slurp!
And of course.. lipsticks!
So, today I’m sharing with you 15 summer lipsticks for Indian skin!
Maybelline velvet matte lipstick ‘MAT4’: Not a velvet matte finish but rather a creamy lip color that stays for surprisingly long! I love to use it as a blush too.
Revlon Ultra HD matte lip color ‘Seduction’: It is a beautiful peachy-pink that goes with just about any makeup look. A weird thing about it is that after the color wears down, I’m left with a bright pink stain on my lips. Honestly, I’m not complaining as my lips aren’t left colorless but it is strange.
Lakme absolute lip pout matte lip tint ‘Victorian Rose’: A “not-in-your-face” red! I wear this alone as well as a base under my other lipsticks (not necessarily red).
Colorbar velvet matte lipstick Bare: A rose *ude that shows a lot of peachy undertones on my skin. To see how it looks on a dark skin tone, check this post on office wear lipsticks for dark skin in India. One of the many versatile summer lipsticks for Indian skin.
Colorbar matte touch lipstick ‘Fairytale’: If there’s a little part of you that’s not sure can rock bold shades, give this one a try. I absolutely love this shade (the name too!). I featured this one even in everyday lipsticks, Part-3. Although I doubt if this will suit deeper skin tones.
Faces Glam on Lipstick ’04, Barely There’: A peachy pink. Given the light shade and comfortable texture, it still stays for 3-4 hours easily. The best part is that it fades evenly!
CAL Los Angeles intense matte lipstick ‘Hollywood Pink’: I don’t often go for neon shades but when I do I make sure that when they wear off, they don’t look awkward! This one fits the bill perfectly! It doesn’t turn crumbly and leaves a stain behind even after the color has worn down!
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Vinyl Lipstick ’08, Orange Magnetique’: This is not my first high-end lipstick purchase but trust me when I say this is the only one which feels like a luxury on lips. It has a feather like light-weight consistency and never feels/looks drying and never turns patchy. And ooh! This also makes my lips look plump. If you have a lot of lip lines, you need to try this one out. It’s bright warm orange in a sheer-medium finish. The packaging.. *_* You can see me wearing it HERE.
Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lipstick Peach Petunia: A coral pink that’s an everyday bright lip color.
Elle18 color pop matte lipstick ‘Let’s Tango’: A coral orange in a creamy matte finish.
Streetwear color rich ultra moisture lipstick ‘Persian Blush’: Love wearing this blue based bright pink in a blotted manner.
Makeup Revolution lip hug lipstick ‘I think you’re amazing’: Not gonna lie; this lipstick is actually amazing! It’s a gorgeous peachy brown and one of my all-time favourites. The formula is moisturizing and needs a touch-up after some 3-4 hours, depending on what you eat/drink.
NYX matte lipstick ‘Shocking Pink’: A traffic-stopping bright purple pink which stays, stays and stays!
NYX lip liner pencil “860, Peekaboo Neutral”: This is one of “my most reached for lip colors” and I’m on my second one right now. I just can’t stop reaching for this gorgeous brownish pink shade in matte finish. However, not the best formula to wear alone if you have dry lips.
Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color ’91, Seduisante‘: The most unique pink shade I own.
