1.Lakme absolute matte lip tint in Raving Red:
This is the latest red to my vanity box. A deep bright matte red packaged in a crayon, Lakme lip tint in raving red is nicely pigmented and stays a decent 4 hours on my lips. This doesn't glide smoothly on my lips and is also very drying so I definitely need to apply a lip balm underneath. Frankly I had more expectations from this product and compared to Revlon balm stain which comes in similar packaging this isn't that good.
If you love matte colours this is for you. Beauties with dry lips should properly exfoliate lips before applying this. The shade however is a beautiful bright red which will suit Indian complexions nicely
Price: 650

2.Revlon just bitten balm stain in Romantic :
Lip crayons are the latest in thing in the beauty world. They are cute and convenient to carry around . I apply these without a lip brush so when I am in a hurry I quickly paint my pout with a lip crayon and head out. This lip crayon shade romantic from is warm red with coral undertones. I love how wearable this shade is , it can be worn everyday and even to parties. For everyday wear just do a single swipe and wear it like lip tint . The finish of this balm stain is glossy and it is decently moisturizing true to its balm stain claim. The best thing about Revlon just bitten balm stain is its staying power of up to 7 hours so no need to worry about touch ups. This lip shade gives a light cooling minty sensation on application which is something I love. Looking for an everyday wearable red lip colour ? Try this .
Price : 700

3.L'Oreal Paris color Riche moist lipstick matte in Lincoln Rose :
I am a fashion addict and follow style from red carpet closely. When Aishwarya Rai flaunted this red color at Cannes red carpet I drooled over her make up and the next day ordered it off Flipkart. This shade is glam pinkish red, the prettiest red I own. Soft texture, non drying matte, amazing pigmentation and fabulous wear time of 7 hours, this lipstick is totally worth its price. Want a brightening red lipstick with pink undertone ? Get this for sure
Price: 899

4.Revlon colourburst gloss in Fire:
I don't wear glosses much because they dont last long and are sticky. I swatched this gloss at Bangalore central and instantly brought it because it gave my face an instant pop and it was also shimmer free. The shade fire is a true red with no undertones and lasts longer than most other glosses I own ( about 3 hours) . This gloss is highly pigmented and gives a shimmer free glossy finish on lips, fading evenly after 2 hours leaving a tint behind. Want a bold red gloss? This is for you.
Price: 500

5.Revlon colorburst matte balm in standout:
Another lip crayon from my stash, I really can't get enough of these. The Revlon balm stains impressed me a lot and when they launched their matte range I quickly grabbed this . The application is smooth and pigmentation is high, a single swipe is enough to give me opaque red lips which stays put for 4 hours after which reapplication is needed. The shade standout is a deep cranberry matte red.
Price : 800

6.L'Oreal Paris pure reds star collection in pure scarleto:
This is from the pure reds collection L'Oreal launched last year. The shade pure scarleto endorsed by brand ambassador Blake lively is a nice warm red . The texture is creamy and on application it dries to matte. This lipstick is intensely pigments and stays put for hours . I like how this lipstick is matte yet doesn't dry out my lips. A nice bright red which flatter Indian complexions. The price is on higher side but these are available at fabulous discounts on amazon at present. Go loot!
Price : 995

7.L'Oreal Paris pure reds star collection in pure brick:
Another shade from star collection signed by our very own Aishwarya Rai. The shade pure brick is a brownish red which is sure to suit every Indian skin tone. This is kind of a very safe red every woman can carry off easily but it tends to look a wee bit mature on me so I don't use it much .
Price: 995
