My Pink/Plum Lipsticks Collection!
I love the color pink. I think it is the most versatile color in makeup since we get different shades which are all pink – nude pink, bubblegum pink, warm pink, cool pink, blue based, brown based and so on. I have many lipsticks which are pink with different under tones. I thought I will show you my collection.
L’oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Velvet Rose:
Price: Rs. 825
This is a very pale pink that goes sheer on my lips. It is very creamy and hydrating but it cannot hide the pigmentation on my lips. I think it will suit only pale skin tones. Due to its creamy texture, it doesn’t stay on my lips for much time. It stays hardly 1-2 hours on my lips and then fades away. It has a tendency to melt and break inside the holder.
MAC Lipstick Mehr:
Price: Rs. 1190
My first ever lipstick from MAC! MAC describes Mehr as a ‘dirty blue pink’. It washes me out unless I am wearing full makeup since it goes very pale on my lips. It is matte in texture and has very good pigmentation. A single swipe is enough to cover the pigmentation on my lips. The staying power is pretty good. It stays on for 4-5 hours without any meals in between.
MAC lipstick Twig:
Price: Rs. 1190
I always think “why good things come so late to me?”. This is my latest purchase from MAC. It is the ideal neutral pink for me. MAC describes it as a ‘soft muted brownish pink’ and that is exactly what it is. It is a very beautiful pink which is suitable for most of the Indian skin tones. The finish is satin and it stays for around 4 hours on my lips without any meals in between. Pigmentation is awesome and it camouflages pigmentation on my lips and still keep them look naturally pink.
Lakme 9 to 5 lip color Red Chaos:
Price: Rs. 400
Red Chaos had the most incorrect name that a lipstick can have in comparison to its shade. It doesn’t look anywhere red to me. I feel it is a brown based pink which has more brown than MAC Twig. It has very good pigmentation and is matte in texture. But it has less staying power compared to MAC lipsticks. If worn continuously it may dry out the lips. It is an ideal every day color for Indian skin tones just like Twig.
Faces Ultimate Prolong wear lipstick Flirty pink:
Price: Rs. 599/-
It is a bubblegum pink and is very flattering for Indian skin tones. It is not neonish but has just the right amount of brightness that will brighten up your face. It is a bit drying in nature and will get into the fine lines if the lips are not moisturized. It is very creamy and fragile that the bullet tends to break if applied with pressure. The pigmentation is great and it camouflages pigmentation on my lips.
MAC Lipstick In Craving:
Price: Rs. 1190/-
This is a beautiful plum shade which is of Amplified Crème finish. MAC describes it as ‘Burst of plum’. It is highly pigmented and very creamy. It doesn’t dry out the lips and stays put for 4-5 hours without any meals in between. I think this is very flattering on medium to dusky skin tones and thus very suitable for Indian skin tones.
MAC Prolong Wear Lip creme in Love Forever:
Price: Rs. 1500/-
This is the only hot pink in my collection. It is really bright and highly pigmented. This stays on and on till you remove it from your lips. MAC describes it as Blue pink and it is very appropriately named. It is a bright blue based pink lipstick. It is drying in nature due to its matte texture and stains. It requires a makeup remover to be taken off. I don’t think it is suitable for office/formal wear. You can read my complete review of LoveForever here.
Revlon Color Burst matte balm Sultry:
Price: Rs. 800/-
This is the only lip product I liked so far from Revlon among the ones which I have tried. I have seen many people comparing it with Twig but it is more intensely pigmented than twig. It is comparable to Craving and I feel it’s a drier version of Craving. I am fond of the color, finish and packing. But I am not very fond of the mint flavor it has. It stays put for 4-5 hours on my lips. You can read my complete review of Sultry here.
