Top 5 Lipsticks for Winter~ Drugstore Edition

HOLA! Winter is here finally!


Time to declutter my vanity area i.e. bidding my goodbyes to all my pastel and n*** lip products as the darker/vampy  shades take over . It’s the time of the year to rock them yet again. Keeping that in mind, I would be sharing a list of such shades that one could wear and rock it amidst the cold season.So, without further ado, let’s get right into the listing.

1. Loreal Paris Color Riche ~Black Cherry: The color riche collection claims to deliver intense moisture while settling into a velvety matte finish. I picked out the shade Black Cherry. Well, the name has absolutely no significance with the shade whatsoever. Black Cherry is a beautiful maroon red that gives that retro Hollywood Glam look. The formula is lightweight and is superbly pigmented. It would suit all kinds of Indian skin tone.  I personally own this color and am in love. Would be wearing it a lot this season. Price: INR 899


2. Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipcolor ~Bold Crimson: Maybelline is by far one of the most affordable brand considering the amazing formula they offer. I chose to pick up the shade Bold Crimson for the list. It is a deep red that would be universally flattering. The formula is creamy which settles to a matte finish.The texture is amazing for the price you pay They have a fruity scent to it that fades away in a while. I prefer fruity scents though.  Price: INR 345


3. Lakme Sculpt Studio Matte Lipstick~ Coco Shot: Lakme is stepping up their game with the amazing sculpt studio line. The shade Coco Shot is a perfect deep cocoa fall lip color for the brown lipstick junkies. The texture is smooth and feels lightweight. Since it is a matte lipstick, I would recommend a lip balm prior application if you tend to suffer from acute chapped lips.  Price : INR 700


4. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm  ~ Shameless: Alright! If you are somebody who have the confidence to pull off purple lips, do check out the shade Shameless from the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm range. Well, a word of caution: This color is certainly not for the faint-hearted. I myself own this color and absolutely adore it especially during the fall/winter season. Shameless is a unique deep pinkish purple shade that looks Goth yet classy. It is a perfect dupe for Mac’s Heroine. The formula is velvety matte and feels lightweight that is super soft. It is semi sheer in a swipe but goes completely opaque in two. Price: 800


5. Rimmel London Lasting Finish~ 120 Cutting Edge: Rimmel has some great lipsticks at such an affordable price. Cutting Edge is a beautiful deep violet lip color that would almost compliment all kinds of skin tones. Yet again, this is not for the faint hearted. This shade has been doing the rounds as a dupe for MAC Rebel. The formula is soft and has a velvety matte finish. If you are someone looking for a dark and vampy  shade, this is sure to work for you.  Price: INR 215
