We all have our secret wishlist of products that we want to try, from lipsticks to foundations to skin care products, but today, I am compiling for you a wishlist of top 15 lipsticks that you would definitely like to own. This list covers the entire spectrum of lipsticks, from mattes to satin and from nude to bold reds. I have heard a lot from people about their “HG eyeliner,” “HG Foundation,” “HG compact, “HG mascara,” but no one has ever mentioned the concept called “HG lipstick.” That’s because we like to keep experimenting with colors, textures, and finishes. We may sometimes like to make a statement with bold red lips while at other times sport nude lips to complement the smokey eyes. Similarly, you would have summer, winter, fall range of lipsticks with you. Moisturizing lipsticks are a must-have in winters and creamy lipsticks to provide the adequate moisture for dry lips. Therefore one is never enough as far as lipsticks are concerned. Here’s a list of the top 15 lipsticks that I am sure, even you would agree with me, that they are must-haves 😛 Please feel free to add your favourties in the comments 🙂
1. MAC Girl About Town Lipstick:
Price: Rs. 990
I would have mentioned MAC Cosmo and MAC Crosswires, but not all skin tones can carry them off that well. They might look stark on some skin tones, but MAC Girl About Town is like every girl’s favourite shade.
Even if its not suitable for your skin tone, you would find ways to make it work for you. There’s no woman who would dislike this beautiful color, in fact, I want my phone cover in this shade, one nail paint of this exact same color, and one handbag too of this shade 😛
2. MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick:
Price: Rs. 990
Okay, here’s a lipstick that wouldn’t raise any eyebrows at all, almost a cult product now. This bold red shade will suit all skin tones and it stays for long, the matte texture brightens up even dusky skin tones.

Lincoln Rose by Loreal is my fav red for Indian skin
My Score- 1/20 ..haha! And I thought I own a truck load of lippies :p
Mac Ruby Woo Price is 1200rs. Or more than that dear it’s not 990?
Let it be lipstick or any other cosmetic, cruelty free brands should be must haves. Many will be shocked to find out that MAC, revlon, loreal, lakme and the above brands test their products on innocent animals and their treatment is utterly cruel. U can google these companies as well. Vegan and cruelty free brands are worth a shot like lotus herbals, essence cosmetics, nyx, beauty without cruelty, urban decay etc.
