Creating Kareena Kapoor's Lipstick In Talaash

A reader wrote to me & asked which lipstick Kareena Kapoor is wearing in song Muskaanein Jhooti Hai from the movie Talaash. She sent me the video, and I was blown away by Kareena's lipstick & her overall look. I think I'm more intrigued by this lipstick than that red one Adele wore at the Grammy's, which her make-up artist is so hush-hush about.
For the last 2 nights & a day, I've been going crazy trying to create Kareena's lipstick color. You know we've been over this in that post Lipsticks That Don't Exist, and it's not that plum we were looking for. This one is different, and it evidently does exist! Question is: WHAT IS IT???
It could be the lighting & all that jazz during the video-making, but it's definitely a plummish-red or reddish-plum. A very pigmented one. I think it's made up of a variety of stuff, and not just one lipstick. The color should look as rich & pigmented as MAC Ruby Woo  with only a little bit of sheen.
I'd been playing around with the lippies I have. I think I kind of nailed it last night at 2 am, but I  couldn't click a proper photo at night time, so I had to clean it all up (and sleep with very stained lips). I re-did it today, and it didn't turn out quite the same! 
What I used:

After hours of  layering, blotting and countless tissues....
It's still too dull-looking. It needs some maroon lipstick/lip liner or a matte plum eyeshadow dabbed on top for that semi-matte look. I don't have any of those at the moment, so this is the best I could do.
 Here's the video if you guys want to see Kareena in one of her best looks....

Anyone with lipstick suggestions? PLEASE! =)

  1. I wore this colour called 'Cutting Edge' by Rimmel which is quite similar to this one actually.

    2. Maybe the lipstick looks like that in the video due to all the lightings and effects that are used. I cannot pull off bold colours like these. :/

    1. I agree with diva. I have the shade myself and its almost exact.

    2. I saw Diva and thought it looked deeper & redder than this...but gorgeous shade too!

    3. Me thinks its Diva applied as a base and then mac rebel applied in the centre. Blotted and reapplied to get the desired color and then topped with some cremesheen gloss. Looks like the work of Mickey Contractor.

  5. I think its Rebel by MAC with some kind of gold dust/pigment patted on the center of the lips to make them appear fuller.

  6. My first thought when I saw the trailer was Rebel too..

  7. Think a mix of Rebel, Berry Brilliant and maybe Colorburst Fuschia could come close. Gotta try them out now!

  12. It looks like MAC Rebel & Diva mixed... plus if I remember correctly Rebel tends to photograph much redder than it actually is.. But the one you have created is very nice too!! :D

    1. u r actually right about Rebel coz it does photograph berry red..i think they used Diva as a base or used a dark plum liner...

      Delete
    2. Yes, I tried Rebel on video and it does look almost exactly like that...just a tad duller. That needs a lip liner I guess

  15. I had the same thought that what lipstick is she wearing as soon as i watch the video for the first time.)
    You are amazing Cynthia.:)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, I totally agree! The moment I saw the first look of this song, I fell in love with her look. She looks elegant, and her make up is simply fabulous!
    They have re-created the cabaret charm in 2012 very well.
    And Cynthia, great job. That color is almost there!

    Much love!

  17. Cant believe u had to mix so many lip shades to achieve that color..when thr is actually one color that totally matches that shade trust me! Try on "funny face" by NARS... But put on a dark plum lip liner like Loreal's lip precision lip liner in "Lilacs/Fuschias"... :)

  18. usually with this look, gals go for sultry red .. this shade was a bold curve from there :) urs is quite close ... more black??

  19. Check out Lime Crime's new lipstick in Poisonberry. It's part of a LE collection. The weird thing is that it's sold out if you want to buy it individually, but you can still buy the entire collection and get the lipstick with it.

    Somehow that lipstick also looks like it could be a part of your "Lipsticks that don't exist" post.

    Don't be fooled by the photos on their website - the swatches I saw on some blogs were more on the berry side of things and very similar to Kareena's look in the song you referred to. Hope I helped! xx

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
