Best Lip-shade: Sephora Collection Color Lip Last in Forever Fuchsia
This hot pink lipstick is my go-to lipstick shade that I wear with just about anything - western as well as traditional! It’s so fun, bright, girly and flirty and definitely helps lift my mood. I think every girl should have a bright pink lippie and I would definitely suggest this one, it stays on for hours and doesn’t dry out your lips.

Best Lip-shade: Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Lipstick 10 Stay Scarlet
After years of hunting for the perfect red lipstick, I finally found one from Estee Lauder! One of the best lipsticks in India, this shade not only goes well with Indian wear, but it also works fabulously well with western outfits too. It suits my skin tone, and stays on my lips for a really long time. In fact, it keeps them moist and smooth.

Best Lip-shade: Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Lip Color, Pink Fantasy
This bright pink shade of lipstick from Lakme is my absolute favourite go-to lipstick shade! It has a creamy matte texture and the packaging is beautiful. The staying power can vary up to 6-7 hours. I love this shade so much that I don’t step out of my house without applying it. This happy colour makes me feel confident and makes my lips stand out at the same time! #PoutReady

Best Lip-shade: MAC Retro Matte Lipstick All Fired Up
My favourite lipstick is the M.A.C Retro All Fired Up. It is the perfect blend of red and pink and instantly brightens up my face when I am wearing minimal makeup or when I'm tired. Since it's matte, it stays put for hours without any hassle of retouching or smudging outside the lipline.

Best Lip-shade: MAC Lipstick - Relentlessly Red From Retro Matte
Considering that I have almost every go-to lip shade in the “Retro Matte” range, it’s pretty obvious I love this collection of M.A.C lipsticks. Relentlessly Red is a shade that has just the right combination of red and bright neon pink which always stands out! I think it matches my skin tone well and it’s one shade I carry in my purse every day! It’s perfect for when I need to perk up my mood!

Best Lip-shade: L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Mat Pinks Cp29-Jlo
One of my fav lipsticks is L'Oreal Color Riche Jlo. It’s one of those versatile shades that can take you from day to night. The color is a hint of plum mixed with rust. What I absolutely love about it is that although it’s a bold color it does not give an impression of being OTT since it is not a bright shade and is of matte texture. It is definitely one of those “perfect” shades that doesn’t require spending a bomb!

Best Lip-shade: Inglot Matte Lipstick
For a girl who claims to not love makeup so much, there hasn't been a single month where I haven't splurged on a go-to lipstick shade (or two!) with my salary! Pinks suit my fair complexion the best, which is why I LOVE my Inglot 426. It's a very girly, pretty pink. It looks gorgeous with western and Indian wear, be it daytime or night. The matte formula is amazing, and lasts all day!

Best Lip-shade: M.A.C Retro Matte Lipstick - Ruby Woo
Ruby Woo is like my lipstick BFF! I’m so glad that I found this shade which works for me so well. It doesn’t matter what time of the day it is or what the occasion is, it goes so well with all my outfits. I can wear it to weddings, dinner dates and even to work. This is the one thing which I always carry in my bag and I literally cannot live without.
