Finding the perfect red lipstick for your skin tone can be a tricky task, even daunting. There are so many red lipsticks available in the market from so many brands. You would surely feel lost in the sea of red! There are a lot of things that you need to take into consideration, and it takes some time to find THE red lipstick for you. So here we have list of six lipsticks which will look perfect on Indian Skin Tone.
MAC – Ruby Woo (Rs 1,500)
No red lipstick list is complete without MAC’s Ruby Woo in it. If you want your lips to make an entry before you, Ruby Woo is what you need. This pop red colour can be worn by anyone, no matter your skin tone. It is highly pigmented and stays put for at least 6 hours. However, your lips might need a little lip balm after a few hours because it is a really matte formula. Since it is a blue-based red, it makes your teeth look whiter.
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche – Red Passion (Rs 720)
This deep red has a hint of shimmer that suits almost every complexion, although it might look a tad too bright on fair skin. However, this should not deter fair-skinned girls from wearing this lustrous lipstick, which lasts upto 5 hours without leaving a tint. An added bonus is that it is hydrating, as it is enriched with Vitamin E and omega-3 oils.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick – Fatal Red (Rs 340)
A warm red that is flattering on every Indian tone, Maybelline’s Fatal Red is a gorgeous, glossy red. Its creamy, smooth texture stays put for over 3 hours, and leaves a lovely pinkish tint as it fades.
Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color SPF 12 – Old Hollywood (Rs 2,100)
What if I tell you that you can have an intensely pigmented, cherry red lipstick that lasts 6-8 hours without budging, transferring, bleeding, or drying out your lips? Incredible, ins’t it? Old Hollywood from Bobbi Brown is all of the above. The blue-based red is creamy yet lightweight, and provides full coverage in a single swipe. It’s pretty similar to MAC’s Russian Red but isn’t as bright.
Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Hearts And Tarts (Rs 288)
A warm, bright red lipstick, Hearts and Tarts has orange undertones. Although it’s a matte formula, it has a velvety smooth texture. It smudges quite a bit so you need to be careful after application, but it has an amazing staying power. It fades away after 5-6 hours of wear without settling in fine lines. It looks best on people with mid-tone complexions.
Maybelline 14 Hr Lipstick – Non Stop Red (Rs 460)
So you don’t want to err on the side of caution every single time. While muted reds are great for the day or at work, you might want a bright pop of red on your lips for a night out. Non Stop Red is what I would call a party-appropriate red. It is neon tone and stays put for six hours and even survives heavy meals. What’s even better is that it fades evenly, leaving a pleasant red tint.
