As the weather turns colder, the darker lipsticks starts taking over my corals and pinks. As a teenager I use to associate these colours only with something like my mom and her friends would wear, but as I turn older, and hopefully wiser, I am starting to love and appreciate darker colours. Something about them is so sexy and they have the old school charm to them.
From a sultry to a very vampy look the choices are endless with these shades, and I am sharing my top 5 picks that would look best on Indian skin tone.
The Rimmel London Lipstick in cutting edge is an absolutely bargain at only Rs 215. It is a beautiful purple with a pink hue which is very similar to Rebel. I love the formula of this lipsticks, it's semi-matte, creamy and long lasting. The colour stains your lips, so even though you eat your lipstick up the colour doesn't fade. Like I said, these lipsticks are absolute steals.
Up next is the Faces Canada Lipstick in Black Cherry, which is a reddish brown colour with a very creamy formula. This colour will look fantastic on dusky skin and it won't even break your wallet. Priced at Rs 250, and being long lasting, enriched with vitamin E, and sleek packaging, this lipstick is yet another bargain.
The Maybelline Jewels in Red garnet is a rich, deep plum shade which will make you feel like a diva instantly. This is the shade you would want to wear on a winter date. It is so rich, velvety, and pigmented. Since the lipstick has the consistency of a balm the lipstick doesn't stay on for too long, but the colour stains your lips and you get the "just bitten my lips" look. This would look great on any skin tone.
Last but not the least we have Maybelline 14 hours Super Stay in Timeless Crimson. This is a dark red lipstick (almost maroon) with a blue undertone. This colour is the best during autumn and winter, will look great on any skin tone, and is very affordable at Rs 350.
I have a full tutorial on the Mac Rebel lipstick, so you can check out the look of it in this tutorial. I also shared a dupe for this lipstick as Mac has increased the price of their lipstick from Rs 999 to Rs 1499/-.
