(There'sonly 5 up there coz I forgot about the 6th one when I clicked that pic, but don;t worry it's down there)
Here my Top 6 Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Colors that I think would suit Indian skin tones- light, medium, dark. Most of them were part of the Gypsy Collection that came out last fall-winter, except for one shade, which was launched with the first batch.
*I didn't bash up the poor lippies. They were squished/dented like that when they reached me.
(L-R) 663, 266, 129, 424, 423
Read on for lip swatches...
663: This is a really nice nude shade with peach undertones. It would suit all Indian skin tones, in my opinion. A better and safer choice than peach for medium to darker skin tones.
266: Darker than 663, although they look almost the same on my hand. I think this is a neither-here-nor-there shade that you can experiment with. I would recommend it for darker skin tones more, but lighter skin tones can also pull it off if the rest of the face is done minimally, otherwise it can make you look older. I would team it with neutral eye makeup and a light sweep of peach blush with brown undertones like Colorbar Just Earth or no blush at all.
129: This is my favorite, for obvious reasons. It's a muted coral-y pinkish shade. If you mix coral, pink & brown, you'll get this shade. It's just a very easy everyday lipstick.
424: If you think orange is too loud for you, and that it belongs only on a pumpkin, then this is a gorgeous alternative. I personally would not have picked this lip color for myself, but when I applied it, I was like 'wow!' It is so saucy! It is the only shade that I didn't have to make any extra effort to apply & click a photo of. ONE shot and it looks good enough, when usually I have to take 3-10 shots to get it right. Now I want a white top with flowers in that color, so I can wear that lipstick in the summer.
423- This is the regular one. Why I applied this one sheerly here? Coz I wanted to show you that it looks like a lip tint a la Benefit Benetint. Just dab a little on your top and bottom lips and spread with your fingertip to get kissable pouty lips. I love it! Since the texture of Enrich Satin is quite moisturizing, you won't feel any dryness that you feel with most lip tints. This one is going in my handbag makeup pouch.
Now the 6th one that's not on the first photo...
Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Color 531
531: This is a light brown shade with yellow undertones. I don't usually wear brown on my lips, but if I had to, I'd pick this shade. It is the perfect color if you want to complement an overall neutral (brown eyeshadows & bronzed cheeks) or smokey eyes look . I wore this the Genelia D'Souza Fastrack Look Tutorial here
Hope you all liked the Top 6 I picked out! Which would you wear?
