Swatch Watch: Top Pink Lipsticks For Fair Indian Skin Tone

Heyya all 😀 Welcome to the new swatch series of ETM! I am kickstarting with every girl’s favorite family-Pink!!!

Though my favorite color is nowhere near pink * I am a blue gal strictly speaking 😛 * but when Jyo asked me to pick out and count my pink lippies even I was astounded to see so many of the family. 😛 But as you go through my post you will see what I mean by not being a pink girl. 😀 All my pinks are either fuchsia or mauvey or orchid or hot pinks!

All swatches, LOTDs and recommendation on the basis of my complexion- fair with strong pink undertones (MAC NW25)

Lets move on to the lipsticks:

A: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter “Berry Smoothie” :

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Berry Smoothie Swatch

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Berry Smoothie Swatch

Color Description: Rosy Berry.

Price: Rs 600/-

Berry Smoothie is the prettiest rosy color of my collection with a perfect glossy berry hint which makes it so perfect for all types of skin tones and complexions! There is neither too much berry to make it a winter color nor too much rose to make it strictly a fair skin color. <3

Rating: 4 / 5

B: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter “Lollipop” :

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Lollipop Swatch

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Lollipop Swatch

Color Description: fuchsia pink with blue pearl

Price: Rs 600/-

The touted close glossy dupe of the famous mac GAT, this lip butter maybe from the similar family but not a dupe I assure you, its easier to wear, very vibrant and much easier to carry off! Looks even prettier as a stain. <3

Rating: 4 / 5

C: Clinique Chubby Stick “Pudgy Peony” :

Clinique Chubby Stick "Pudgy Peony" Swatch

Clinique Chubby Stick “Pudgy Peony” Swatch

Color Description: glossy cool toned pink

Price : Rs 1025/-

Hehe me and my cool pinks. 😛 Warm coral pinks scream blue murder on my skin and hence another fresh bluey pink from my bunch, easy to wear and can be warmed up a bit by filling in your lip with a neutral warm pink pencil. 🙂 Hydrates lips beautifully.

Rating: 3.5 / 5

D: Chambor Rouge Plump+ #747 :

Chambor Rouge Plump + Lipstick 747 Swatch

Chambor Rouge Plump + Lipstick 747 Swatch

Color Description: a bright radiant orchid

Price: Rs 745/-

This was omg so unusual I was literally chicken to try out at the counter ! but once I did it was *lat lag gayi :P* I had to take it home! An extremely blue, orchid shade which looks the best on pinky/cool skin tones IMO.

Rating: 4.5 / 5

E: Chambor Rouge Plump+ #748 :

Chambor Rouge Plump + Lipstick 748 Swatch

Chambor Rouge Plump + Lipstick 748 Swatch

Color Description: a red tinged bright hot pink

Price: Rs 745/-

Umm..too common? But you cannot deny its in-your-face vibrancy. 🙂 Chambor 748 is a lovely hot pink, smooth to wear and apply and stays on for eons and eons! I initially bought it as a MAC All Fired Up substitute *I didn’t have it back then* but when I had both I loved my chambor one more. 😛 *yess..incredible as it may sound, I sold off All Fired Up and retained this one :P*

Rating: 4 /5

F: MAC Please Me (Matte) :

MAC Matte Lipstick "Please Me" Swatch

MAC Matte Lipstick “Please Me” Swatch

Color Description: a muted rosy-tinted pink

Price: Rs 1190/-

Ahhh..my familiar territory 😛 MAC Please Me was a very recent buy. 🙂 An impulsive one bought under store lights which looked a tad too pale on my already colored lips back home. 😐 I rushed MAC the next day and was advised to try it above a neutral pink lip pencil..omg…it has been my perfect pink for everyday lips!

Rating: 4.5 / 5

G: MAC Cosmo (Amplified Creme) :

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick "Cosmo" Swatch

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick “Cosmo” Swatch

Color description: Pink Coco

Price: Rs 1190/-

This is literally my cannot-live-without lipstick color and I often want to slap myself as I see scores and scores of other brand lipsticks very near to or almost similar to this shade lying uselessly all around my house. 😐 I shouldn’t have bought so many! This is my only one. <3 The perfect anytime every time pinkish brown neutral lippie.

Rating: 5 / 5

H: MAC Flat Out Fabulous (Retro Matte) :

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick "Flat Out Fabulous" Swatch

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick “Flat Out Fabulous” Swatch

Color description: a bright plum matte

Price: Rs 1190/-

I went crazy for this shade as soon as I came to know its name from the print ads of MAC Retro Matte collection. 😀 It is so vibrant, so pink yet purple, you will have people stopping you on the streets and asking which lippie *_* and for me no compliment can beat that. 😀

Rating: 3.5 / 5

I: MAC Girl About Town (Amplified Creme) :

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick "Girl About Town" Swatch

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick “Girl About Town” Swatch

Color description: a bright blue fuchsia

Price: Rs 1190/-

I have tried the dupes, I have tried the substitutes and I have tried its glossy counterpart from mac *Lickable for your info* naahh.. I have always come back to this baby like a magnet. 😀 The perfect fuchsia I have ever seen or worn, the perfect creamy finish, lasting power, yet actually easy to carry off..have to repurchase through life. 🙂

Rating: 5 / 5

J: MAC Impassioned (Amplified Creme) :

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick "Impassioned" Swatch

MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick “Impassioned” Swatch

Price: Rs 1190/-

Color description: Amped-up Fuchsia

Err amped up fuchsia or not I dunno -_- for me impassioned was a dare the first time I wore it! I had never before in my life gone outside the boundary of my safe neutrals and yet I wanted to stare at my own transformed face..that was the moment I was hooked on to lipsticks and MAC…..my irreplaceable hot pink, so very similar to Party Parrot -_- *dunno why people cry for PP..impassioned on lips is the SAME!*

Rating: 4.5 / 5

My *cannot live without* pink lipsticks:

MAC Cosmo: *have not found a replacement for this in my life! From the pics also you can make out that its my most worn lipstick 😀 and when in doubt I always jump to it and it is the sole thing apart from baby lips to make its permanent habitat in my bag. <3*

MAC Girl About Town: *the shade everybody raved about and I saw the most dupes of,  but which sadly I found nothing to hoo-haa about until finally I tried it 1 day and flipped!! How is it that it can make my skin glow and my teeth pearly white. :O I can’t let go of it ever! All hype justified you ask? I say yes!*

MAC Please Me: Quite an underrated pink shade which I avoided trying for a long time in fear that it would surely wash me out + it’s a matte which for lighter shades is a strict no-no for me. But when I tried it on top of a neutral lip pencil and balm I swear my lips have never looked nicer. 😀 I heart it now!*

The lipsticks I recommend from the lot:

Love hot pink? Do not let go of Impassioned. 😉 No matter how many dupes people come up with, it’s the ultimate one and only hot pink. 😀

Fuchsia? GAT as stated earlier, look no further!

Everyday wear? Cosmo is the one I want to die in literally, 😀 but for ladies with darker complexions do check out Twig or Brick-o-la instead as they are of the same family but are darker so would look lovely!

And for the recent trend and pantone color of the year radiant orchid, the #747 color is one of the prettiest color Chamber has ever come out with and its texture is buttery and does plump up lips as well. 😀 I am in love with this unique vibrant color!

And that concludes my pink family favorites! Hope this post helps you in choosing a bit. <3 Toodles! See ya all soon 😀

You have an envious collection of pink lipsticks Agni. <3 Except for Chambor 747 (which I can not carry even in my wildest of dreams 😛 ), I loved every single shade. Gorgeous lip swatches as always. :*
