Now that I am back in to the working mode, I would like to talk about few lip colours that do a pretty decent job in making my lips look great. Until sometime back I would always be in a dilemma which shade would perfectly complement most of my work outfits, which shade should go into my bag for those urgent touch-ups before an important meeting so that too much attention is not drawn on my pigmented lips while I speak.
Some of these lipsticks are intensely hydrating while others settle for a matte finish, which is not super-drying. Let’s get to see which are those shades:
MAC Twig: This is such a versatile shade that I cannot have enough of it. And the best part is that frequent touch-ups are not needed for this one and it also leaves behind a beautiful pink stain, which is not patchy at all. As described by many other blogger friends of mine, this is truly a MLBB shade for many Indian skin tones like me. For those who have pigmented lips can carry this shade well.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Mad About Mauve: This is a mauvish pink shade and again a great everyday wear shade. I have found myself reaching out for this shade often when I am dressed in either ash or black suits. The formula is super soft and intensely hydrating. I won’t say it stays on my lips for a long time, but definitely my lips feel more hydrating than ever.
Lakme 9 to 5 Red Chaos: This is an everyday red that you can wear to work and then right after work if you got a party to attend, you can layer it with a transparent gloss and get those lovely kissable lips. Though it comes in matte finish but it is not drying at all. The lipstick feels creamy upon application, but settles down to a powdery matte finish and lasts for a decent amount of time, which means no frequent touch-ups (somehow this fact makes me more than happy whenever the lasting power of a lipstick is concerned). I cannot have enough of it and this has occupied a permanent place in my bag. No matter whatever outfit I wear to office, I use this lipstick for my touch-ups. It appears more red on my lips than in the picture.
What do you feel about the abovementioned shades? Which are your favourite shades for work?
