Sristi Asks:

Hey everyone! I have been toying with the idea of buying a red lipstick since the past few days. And I just can’t get myself to decide which one to buy, primarily because I don’t wanna invest too much and then find out that the lipstick isn’t meant for my skin tone. So I was hoping u guys could help me in picking the right red lipstick shade for me from amongst the drugstore brands! I am attaching a few of my pics for reference. I have a wheatish skin tone. And I am pretty sure I have a warm skintone! So please help!

I have Revlon Colorburst ‘Crimson’ and I really love it! There’s another shade in Revlon colorburst called ‘True Red’. Both shades are very beautiful and the best part abt this lippie is that you can wear it sheered out with balm for just a nice red tint for the daytime. From maybelline moisture extreme there 3-4 red shades..the one I can remember right now is ‘Summer sunset’. I highly recommend Revlon colorburst ones though they cost Rs 550 and if you want to go for a more economical one(which makes sense cos you won’t be using red very often) you should go for Maybelline. Do try out the lipstick at the counter to see how it looks on your face and check it in daylight and white light also as the yellow store lighting can be misleading. Happy shopping!

Try MAC’s Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Full Spee or MAC Lipstick in Russian Red or Lady Bug. All three are warm toned reds that will go well with warm toned skin – which you definitely have. :) Hope this helps :)
