Dark Lip Look on Indian Skin | Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! Dark, vampy lips have been a huge trend this season and I’ve always been a little skeptical about whether I could pull off a deep, dark lip color. I finally experimented a little and found some lip shades that worked for Indian skin. Its all about balancing the bold lip with the right neutral, defining eye makeup and fresh complexion. Dark lip colors can draw out the color from the face, so a rosy blush on the cheeks helps a lot in bringing the look together. I would also suggest plum or burgundy based lip colors instead of greyish or bluish tones as they are more flattering. Hope you find this tutorial helpful!

 

 
Lipcolor is ColourPop Ellarie Lip Pencil paired with Dukes Lippie Stix. I ordered the lip products from the ColourPop website and used a forwarding service to get it shipped to India. It’s a convenient and secure way to get products shipped from overseas to India. They basically give you a US address (if you’re shipping from the USA) where you can get packages delivered from any US retailer. They then combine all your packages and ship it to your Indian address. You can pay via credit card or COD. The charges are slightly on the higher side as compared to USPS and the website could do with some upgrades but overall, its the safest way and quickest way to get brands that are not available in India.

Faces Creme Lip Crayon | Swatches

 

Hi everyone! Faces launched their Creme Lip Crayons a couple of months back and this post has been pending for a long time now! I have been wearing some of these shades often and finally got around to swatching these for you. The range contains 10 shades and these are priced at Rs 749. I love that they are retractable so you don’t have to sharpen them. I also like the colored packaging that takes the guesswork out, its very easy to locate a particular shade and storage becomes so convenient.

Nykaa So Matte! Lipsticks | Swatches, Review

 

Hi everyone! Nykaa.com has launched their range of matte lipsticks and I am super excited to share this review with you! These lipsticks have are creamy matte texture, really good color pay off and staining long wear. The range contains 12 shades and these are priced very affordably at Rs 399.

The clean and simple black matte packaging has a magnetic closure and the square tube reminds me somewhat of Burberry lipsticks. The formula feels very luxurious, is comfortable on the lips even after 4-5 hours of wear and the faint vanilla scent makes it quite nice to use. Check out the video for lip swatches!
