Top 10 Pink Lipsticks for Indian Skin Tones, Prices, Buy Online
When I did the ‘Top 10 Red Lipsticks‘ post I thought I would be fun to do the Top 10 Pink Lipsticks as well, but girl! It was a tough one. Pink is such a color that no matter what the complexion is, it looks cute. So you can never ask a girl that which pink she prefers, because she is going to choose every pink lippy in her kitty. Every brand has minimum of 10-20 shades of pink in their range of lipstick and I narrowed down one pink color from every possible brand. I have included daytime pink to bright summery pink to Barbie pink for all occasions which will suit an array of Indian complexions. So, let’s take a look at the list.
1. Faces Canada I Do Ultime Pro Velvet Matte Lipstick – INR 649 (BUY HERE)
This is one of my recent discoveries which I wear regularly. This a soft pink, more of a dusty tea rose kind of color. A perfect everyday wearable pink for fair to medium skin tones. It is a subtle color which can be worn with a smoky eye as well. The color has a creamy texture which settles down to a comfortable matte finish without accentuating on fine lines. It is a long-wearing lip color and perfect for matte lovers. The price is also reasonable for the quality it delivers.
2. Streetwear Color Rich Ultra Moist Lipstick – Pink Passion – INR 155 (BUY HERE)
Streetwear Color Rich Ultra Moist is one of the best affordable lipstick range. The packaging is cute, nice and totally light weight. The texture is neither too creamy nor too matte to accentuate to fine lines or dry lips and hence, one can easily wear it and would love it. Moreover, it is very forgiving to dry and chapped lips. Coming to the color, it is pretty deep fuchsia-berry sort of color and will suit all complexions. It instantly brightens up the face. You can also try the color Spell Bound which is more of a daytime pink kind of color and looks soft and chic.
3. MAC Flat Out Fabulous (Retro Matte) – INR 1450
Well MAC has a whopping price tag but you can’t deny the beauty of MAC. From the magnificent shade card to the indisputable texture, MAC has it all. From the pink family, I would prefer the Flat Out Fabulous (Retro Matte) which is a bright fuchsia pink (with slight purple tone) that serves every complexion. If you prefer more of a subtle pink, try out MAC Cosmo or Please Me for day time. The lipsticks are surely long wearing and highly pigmented that hides the pigmentation effectively.
4. Sugar Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Mary Poppins – INR 799 (BUY HERE)
I am simply in awe of these lip crayons and one of the best in the market. The color Mary Poppins is a bright fuchsia pink without any undertones. It has a creamy powdery texture that settles in matte finish. Although it requires a lip prepping prior application. The color is highly pigmented and one swipe is just enough and the staying power is extremely long lasting. The shade Holly Golightly is another stunning day wear pink with a subtle formula and looks great with formal wear.
5. L’Oréal Paris Color Riche La Vie en Rose Collection – INR 995 – 950 (BUY HERE)
L’Oréal has recently launched the La Vie en Rose Collection and it is an eye candy for every girl out there who loves pink. From soft pink, nude pink, vampy pink – name it and you have it all. Eva’s and Aishwariya’s pink are the prettiest one among the collection and definitely check out Bhumika’s review for detailed information. These lipsticks comes in Moist Mat and Extraordinaire collection. Price wise it is a bit high but surely the quality speaks for it.
6. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Cherries in the Snow – INR 550
Cherries in the Snow is a classy pink with cherry red undertones which is the typical vintage pink and all-time favorite lip color from Revlon. The range has some very pretty colors and this is one of them. The texture is ultra-hydrating which works very well for dry and chapped lips. Super Lustrous Cream Lipstick contains an exclusive LiquiSilk formula that combines pure color with silk enriched mega moisturizers and vitamins. The color will suit the Indian skin tones pretty well and the pigmentation is top notch. The price tag is also reasonable compared to the contemporary variants.
One of the recent launches of Maybelline is the Lip Gradation pencils with a lip-smudger at the end. The color Pink 2 is a deep pink which looks stunning across every Indian skin tones especially because it has such warm undertones to it. It brightens up the face yet a comfortable day wear pink. The pencil is so precise that you won’t need a lip liner at all and the texture is smooth. It gives a nice and comfortable matte finish and has a long wearing formula as well.
If you are looking for a subtle pink that looks like a statement color yet not bright and deep, this is the color for you. 9 to 5 has a beautiful range of colors to choose from and the quality of the lipstick is stunning, compared to the price you pay for it. It is a mauve pink and the texture is so smooth that it glides on the lips with ease. It settles down to a matte finish and a great choice of color for romantic dates. Even when the color fades off after 4-5hours, it leaves behind a pretty pink tint to the lips.
9. Chambor Extreme Wear Liquid Transferproof Lipstick 402 – INR 845 (BUY HERE for 805)
Chambor recently launched these little babies and I am falling head over heel for them. One shade that stole my heart is shade no. 402 which is a dusty pink with mauve undertone. This is the exact dupe of the Kylie Jenner lip kit called Poise K and we simply adore her lip colors. This liquid lipstick is richly pigmented and gives a flat matte finish to the lips. It is extremely long wearing and come across as an elegant lip color for every complexion. (P.S: I just got this one co-incidentally! Review coming soon)
Colorbar’s Mauve Dusk is more of a deep pink with slight mauve undertones that is flattering to every skin tones. It is a liquid lipstick with a very pretty wand that spreads the color on the lips very precisely without being messy. It gives a matte finish and hence dry lips have to prep the lips very well before application. The pigmentation is commendable and so as the long lasting formula to the lips. More importantly, the color, once dried, doesn’t transfer at all. (P.S: This is my absolute favourite!!)
Editor’s Note: This is a fabulous list Sanchita, have 3-4 of my all time favourite pinks in the list. I would like to add Lakme Absolute Matte Lip Tint in Pink Fantasy and Magenta Magic, and Lakme Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick Pink Caress
So, what is your favorite pink lipstick?
