So take out all your reds, pinks, oranges, corals and browns to bring the house down. I have listed about 7 shade varieties from 7 different brands; there is one for every girl in this classic collection.
Here is a list of red for the bold, pink for the beautiful, coral for the damsels, orange for the rock chic, brown for the intense, magenta for the dramatic and a nude shade for the relatively shy girl.

Festive Lip Colors

Indian Festive Season - Lipstick

When I think festive my cult favourite festive shade is RED. Ofocurse there is pink and coral too. So let’s start with the lightest shade for the shy ladies. All these shades are appearing for the first time on NOM, I will review them in detail with time.

1. Nude Pink - Rimmel London Kate Moss Collection - Shade 16 - Rs. 250
This one is from Rimmel London’s Kate Moss Collecton in the shade 16. It is the perfect nude pink for those dramatic eyes and highly glamorous face. This color will balance all the glam and shimmer without making you look “overdone”. The texture is creamy matte perfect for the occasions giving that glossy look with the matte long stay. Since the color is light I recommend lining the lips and carrying it for reapplication.

2. Coral Pink - Lakme 9 to 5 Crease-Less Lipstick - Coral Incentive - Rs. 450
The next shade I would like to show you girls is the Lakme 9 to 5 crease-less lip color in shade Coral Incentive. This shade is a blend of coral and pink. In short it’s a corally pink shade which would beautifully compliment the Indian Skin Tone. The texture is very light on the lips; it feels like wearing nothing at all. It has very fine shimmer infused which looks flattering on the lips with shimmer makeup. Sine the color is light which might require reapplication.

3. Orange - Revlon Colorburst Matte Lip Balm - Audacious - Rs. 800
The third shade I love for the occasions is a beautiful orange shade from Revlon called the Colorburst Matte Balm in the shade Audacious. It is a creamy matte lip color which looks beautiful on fair to medium skin tones. The shade is a peachy orange which has a creamy matte finish. The longevity is great when lined with a lip liner. It has a minty flavour once applied which fades away within few minutes. The light weight finish and the gorgeous color make it to my list of festive colors.

4. Neon Pink - Maybelline Color Sensational Pink Alert - POW 4 - Rs. 425
This lipstick form Maybelline is my all time favourite. It is from the Color Sensational Pink Alert range in the shade POW 4. It is spectacular neon creamy pink. The finish is magical, when applied it is glossy and creamy. After a few minutes when I press my lips it becomes matte. After a few minutes glossy again, this a great option when you want to wear both glossy and matte lip color at the same time Wink I simply love it. The shade is so pretty and will match beautifully with most Indian festive outfits.

5. Magenta- Face Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick - Read my Lips - Rs. 699
The next shade is a deep pink or magenta shade from Faces Ultime Pro Long wear range called Read my Lips. The color is an intense pink shade with a beautiful matte finish but a smooth application. The best thing about this lipstick is the packaging, the awesome tight click lock mechanism and slim body makes it great for travel. It can easily fit into the festive special pouch and clutch you want to carry. The staying power is quite long owing its matte finish.

6. Red- Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick - Hot Hot Hot - Rs. 300
The next shade is hot Red shade from Colorbar also called Hot Hot Hot. It is a sexy Red shade to compliment all skin tones. The color is a pure red. The staying power is amazing, it stays put for hours after application. The texture is that of a comfort matte, meaning it doesnt dry out the lips yet giving a super matte finish.The pricing is great at Rs. 300 which makes it super affordable with a super quality. The color is so intesnse in a single swiipe that it can cover pigmented lips easily.

Bold Red Lip color for Karwa Chauth & Weddings

Brown Lip Color for the Festive Season

7. Brown - L'Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire - Scarlet Concerto - Rs. 950
The last shade in this range of lip colors is from L’Oreal called the Scarlet Concerto. Sadly this shade has been discontinued by the brand. This is an intense red brown shade with a glossy finish. I am not into browns thus I avoid using it as a lipstick shade. In order to give a sheer finish of brown, I chose this gloss. The staying power is about 4 hours once it sets on the lips. Though it is called a liquid lipstick it is more of a lip cream which woks great for me.
