I’ve stumbled across an influx of new lipsticks recently. A whole load of colours and in a whole load of textures. So today I’m breaking the new offerings down for all budgets and all lipstick preferences. Need I say anymore…
Nykaa So Matte Lipstick – these are Nykaa’s first foray into the matte world, labeling their whooping 30-shade line as creamy & long-lasting. These give a plush wash of colour for the most part with a more intense colour pay-off. My favourites shades? Well I’m all over the pink-tinged brown, Bon Bon and Caramel Margarita – a sophisticated nude that imparts just the right balance of brown and pink. Lip lovers aside the target audience here is non-lipstick wearing gals – light on the lips you can’t even feel it working its magic.
Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick – I’ve mentioned these before when they were first released (post here) and though I had some minor niggles with the formula, you can’t deny that these are the go-to lacquers on budget. Matte, pigmented and in a load of shades, for Rs.295 a piece you can’t go wrong. Here are my pick of the bunch. BM10 is rich nude brown and BM11 (my favourite of the bunch) is a soft true brown. Sold.
Faces Glam on Colour Perfect Lipstick – I promise I didn’t pick these up due to the super cute, glitter pouch it came on offer with, promise. But the bag is just adorable. The 2 I’ve here are Sugar Candy and the star of the show for me just has to be Addiction – spring lip perfection. Though it has reminded me just how awesome the Colour Perfect formula is: easy to apply and with a lasting power that means you have to work to get it off at the end of the day.
Maybelline Colour Show Creamy Matte Lip Colour – These lipsticks give a matte no-shine texture. The pigments are strong, long-lasting and there are no unsightly dry-spot clinging colours. My top pick is Bold Crimson, it’s the definition of a true red.
Just a bit of food for thought in the lip department. Over and pout.
