1. Maybelline Colorsensational Jewels Rubylicious (Rs 350)

 

Rubylicious is deep ruby red with a soft glossy finish and moisturizing formula. Cool toned ruby red are universally flattering and look exceptionally good on dusky skin. If bright popping reds are not your cup of tea, try this softer cool toned version of red. This lipstick will pair well with deep blue/purple/black outfits.

2. MAC Lipstick Rebel (Rs 990)

 

MAC Rebel is a fuchsia-plum shade that looks gorgeous on all skin tones and on all age groups. The shade is superbly pigmented and has a long stay satin finish. This shade is not for the faint hearted but looks stunning on the dusky Indian skin. This shade looks great with pinks for a coordinated look and with a green outfits for a contrasting look.

See how it looks on me HERE.

3. Revlon matte lipstick Really Red (Rs 550)

 

Really red is bright tomato red – perfect for pairing with Festive red/cream/gold outfits. It has a delightfully creamy texture, intense pigmentation and a soft non-drying finish. Contrary to most bold colors, this one is nonstaining. You can pair this yellow/orange/mustard outfits as well.

I have worn it in THIS look.

5. Lakme Lip Love Lipstick Valentine Velvet (Rs 550)

 

Valentine Velvet is perhaps the softest color of this compilation but gorgeous nonetheless. This deep berry pink lipstick has a lovely soft texture and a smooth velvety formula that keeps the lips soft and moist. Ideal for pairing with pink/purple outfits.

[note color=”#FFE4C4″] I personally love statement lip colors especially when the weather begins to get chilly. A glamorous lip adds so much style and sophistication to the look and gives an instant face lift! Keep the eyes subtle with a wash of pale gold or bronze eye shadow, liner/kohl and mascara when wearing a bold lip. To keep the focus on the lips, avoid smokey or dramatic eyes and keep the cheeks understated with a hint of blush and highlighter.

      Hey Manisha, please check the links given in the post. I’ve done FOTDs/reviews of these shades and the links are in the individual descriptions as well as the end of the post. I’ve not done a look with Lakme Valentine Velvet yet but I’m at home now and I didn’t bring the lipstick with me so can only do the look after 16th!

      Going by the general level of (dis)comfort Moms have with reds and fuchsias, I’d suggest go for something softer like Lakme Lip love Valentine Velvet. If your Mum is comfortable with a deep red, go for Maybelline Rubylicious.

    Awesome shades… But I’m too too hesitant to try such vibrant shades on me:( I wear only nudes and subtle colors till date.

      Hi Preethi, why don’t you start with something softer like a bright pink or dusty coral. Reds can be a little overpowering to carry but you could try a berry pink like Maybelline Colorsensational Jewels Berry Brilliant.

        Sure Ankita I will try out berry brilliant. I’m glad u took time to reply:) thanks
