Things To Consider When Buying Lipsticks

  • Complexion

Before buying a lip shade, don’t forget to consider your complexion or skin color. Opt for a lip shade that suits your complexion and enhances it. Listed below are some colors that go well with different skin tones:

    • Fair Or Light Complexion: Shades of red, pink, and peach.
    • Medium, Tan, Or Olive Complexion: Pinks, nudes, reds, and oranges.
    • Dark Or Dusky Complexion: Colors like coral, mauve, and purple.
  • Texture

Lipsticks come in different textures like matte, glossy, creme, and metallic. Choose the one that suits your style or taste the most. Textures like creme and matte are recommended for daily wear. In contrast, metallic and glossy finishes are suitable for special occasions and evening wear. Additionally, matte lipsticks are not suitable if you have dry or chapped lips.

  • Staying Power

Invest in a lipstick that does not require frequent touch-ups. Check the label and user reviews of a lipstick to find out more about its staying power.

  • Moisturization

Some lipsticks can dry out your lips. Therefore, go for one that contains moisturizing and hydrating properties. Lipsticks with ingredients like argan oil, vitamin E oil, and almond oil are some good picks.

So these are the top 10 must have budget lipsticks for everyone. They cover almost all the major tones needed. They are easily available in India and you don’t have to spend much to get them. At least try one of them and we are pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.

Till then, keep it stylish!
