The Perfect Pink Nude Lipstick For Every Indian Girl!

By  | 

There was a conversation recently where someone asked me for nudes. As a beauty junkie, I sent several pictures of my nude lipstick collection, carefully selecting a motley mix from peaches to browns and everything in between. He was not impressed. Apparently that’s not what he meant by nudes.

Anyway, as a girl with her priorities in the right place, I pride myself on finding just the right shade of nude for myself and for colleagues. So when the discussion came around to the perfect pinky nude lipstick, I knew just the one. And then because I am a wonderful person, I decided to share this knowledge. And you can pick from a splurge and save version.



M.A.C Matte Lipstick in Mehr (Rs 1,500)

This one is an iconic lipstick that has been named after Mickey Contractor’s wife, and it is absolutely the perfect pink nude for Indian skin tones. Or as makeup gurus like to call it, it’s MLBB (my lips but better). It’s creamy, pigmented, and great to ace that ‘no makeup’ makeup look. It’s almost universally flattering, and we can’t stop raving about how amazing it is.



Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color in Blush Velvet (Rs 420)

This particular shade from this range is a perfect dupe for Mac Mehr, and goes on like a dream. And at this price point, there’s absolutely nothing to complain about. It’s not drying on the lips, looks great with practically any outfit, and delivers pigment in one swipe. It doesn’t last forever, but that’s a tiny hiccup for an otherwise great product.
