We Found 7 Lipsticks That Are Fabulously Flattering On Indian Skin Tones For Under Rs 500!

By  | 

The new year is here! And with it come resolutions. And one of mine (yes, I am brave enough to declare it) is that I will spend less. Who am I kidding? I will be spending, but mindfully. Obviously, this caused me to launch an intense Google search on things I regularly throw my money at. Lipsticks, for instance. Because a girl can never have too many, or enough, even. So here are a bunch of lipsticks, all under Rs 500 so you can shop to your heart’s content. Or maybe just get all of them, because what are these prices even?

Here are top picks from the lipsticks!

This is the best thing your money can buy. This lipstick is pigmented, creamy and comes for a a price that is super wallet-friendly. We love the range, there’s so much to pick from and their ‘Touch of Spice’ shade is a nude that’s caught everyone’s fancy.

If you are looking for a lipstick that gives you the shade in the packaging in one swipe, this is what you should pick. They have a lot of shades of pink that are flattering on the Indian skin tone. Pretty much any shade you will reach out for, will work.

Here’s a lipstick that is so perfectly named, it’s amazing. This lipstick will stay on your pout, won’t smudge, won’t budge and one coat is enough. The colours do settle a tinge darker, say reviewers so take that into account.

We love how the Colorbar shade range in this collection flirts with every kind of red. From the deep maroons to the cherry pinks, there’s a lot to choose from here. And we would be lying if we said we weren’t tempted to get one of each, and at this price point, we probably will. *adds collection to cart*

Kiko is a brand after our own heart. And these lipsticks in particular make our hearts sing. They are moisturising, creamy and will last forever, even through a meal. And the shades! You will find everything from the browns to the pinks, the nudes and everything in between.


That’s it, ladies. Your search for a lipstick under Rs 200 that’s everything epic ends here. We love the shade range, the finish (matte) and how long this stays on the lips. Honestly, we weren’t expecting much in terms of staying power, but this one wowed us!

Think one swipe. Think crazy pigmentation. Think budge-proof. This is everything this lipstick is and then a little more. And it comes under Rs 500. It’s a little tacky when you apply it and the smell might be a little strong, but you’ve found yourself a gem here. Load up!
