Bourjois Color Boost Lipstick / Crayon "Red Sunrise" Swatch

Bourjois Color Boost Lipstick / Crayon “Red Sunrise” Swatch

Color Description: Pinkish Red with glossy finish.

Price : 785 Rs.

The color is pretty pinkish red, very pigmented and luscious on lips. If used with light hand can be worn during day time as its very summery color. However doesn’t stain heavily. So girls who like long wearing colors may get disappointed with this.

Rating: 4.5 /5

 

 

B: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter “Cherry Tart”:

Revlon Lip Butter "Cherry Tart" Swatch

Revlon Lip Butter “Cherry Tart” Swatch

Color Description: Shimmery cool toned red with glossy finish.

Price : 600 Rs.

Color need to be swiped several times as its very creamy buttery formula. Not suitable for pigmented lips as it doesn’t cover lip pigmentation. However is a good choice for girls who are not confident with very bright bold reds and want something light on lips.

Rating: 4 /5 (does not cover lip pigmentation)

 

C: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick “Crimson”:

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick "Crimson" Swatch

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick “Crimson” Swatch

Color Description: Very deep red with warm, slight rusty tones and creamy formula.

Price : 600 Rs.

Crimson is a very deep, glamorous and very autumn winter kind of red. A great party wear, but when used as a stain it can be worn during day time too.

Rating: 5 /5

 

D: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick “Red Lacquer” :

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick “Red Lacquer” Swatch

Color Description: Orange-y red with glossy finish.

Price : 550 Rs.

Color is very orange candy like with enough red. Creamy formula and glossy finish, but it’s not very pigmented. Red lacquer needs to be swiped several times before getting the intense color. Not suitable for pigmented lips. Very summery color and will be liked by girls who like wearing bright colors with a sheen and are comfortable with being the center of attraction.

Rating: 4 / 5

E: Lakme Absolute Crème Lip Color Red Carpet:

Lakme Absolute Creme Lip Color "Red Carpet" Swatch

Lakme Absolute Creme Lip Color “Red Carpet” Swatch

Color Description: Very deep red with cool tones and slight creamy matte finish.

Price : 650 Rs.

This color is very deep, highly pigmented and has slight cool tones. One only need single swipe of color for full pigmentation. I think this shade is a must have for every girl. Even though it has cool tones they are not strong enough as to look outstanding on girls with yellow tones. Finish is slight creamy, but after sometimes its turns matte. Extremely long wear and lovely formula.

Rating: 5 /5

F: Lakme Absolute Crème Lip Color Runway Red:

Lakme Absolute Creme Lip Color "Runway Red" Swatch

Lakme Absolute Creme Lip Color “Runway Red” Swatch

Color Description: Deep red with warm tones and creamy matte finish.

Price : 650 Rs.

Color is similar to red carpet in every aspect except for this one has slight warm tones to it. This lipstick can easily be used during night time or just as a stain during day time. For stain one only need to pat it slightly on lips rather than swiping and even out color with your finger.

Rating: 5 /5

 

G: MAC Retro Matte Lipstick “Ruby Woo”:

This lipstick hardly needs any introduction. Highly pigmented formula, long wear, perfect matte and most selling lipstick from MAC, Ruby Woo is a steal and a must have for every girl.

H: Maybelline Lip Polish “POP 6”:

Maybelline Lip Polish “POP 6” Swatch

Color Description: True red lipstick with glossy finish.

Price : 450 Rs.

This lipstick has luscious glossy finish. Color can be described as neutral toned true red which at times under flash light looks pinkish red and under natural light may appear slightly warm. Has micro silver shimmer which is hardly visible unless looked very closely. Girls who don’t want to shell out too much money but want to invest in red which can be worn during day time too would love to own this.

Rating: 5 /5

I: L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick “Flaming Kiss”:

L'Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick "Flaming Kiss" Swatch

L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick “Flaming Kiss” Swatch

Color Description: Orangey Red with Matte Finish

Price: 899 Rs.

Quite wearable orangey red which will suit all the complexions and all tones. Matte formula of these lipsticks is superb and best amongst drugstore so far. This color instantly brightens up the complexion and will suit everyone.

Rating: 5 /5

 

J: L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick “Make Me Blush” :

L'Oreal Color Riche Lipstick "Make Me Blush" Swatch

L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick “Make Me Blush” Swatch

Color Description: Deep red with slight plummy mauve tones and slight frosty finish.

Price : 785 Rs.

Make me blush comes under red color family, but has slight plummy tones which makes it appear deep and has a frosty finish. It need to be swiped a lot to get the intense color. Frosty finish makes it bit more mature in my opinion and I personally don’t like it much.

Rating: 3.5 / 5

 

K: L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick “Lincoln Rose” :

L'Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick "Lincoln Rose" Swatch

L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick “Lincoln Rose” Swatch

Color Description: Bright Pinkish Red with Matte finish.

Price: 899 Rs.

Lincoln Rose can be described as pinkish red. It’s very bright and lovely but not gaudy. This can be worn during day time if used with light hand as a stain. During night time again it looks very glamorous. Highly pigmented formula and long wear comfortable texture makes these lipsticks a must have for every girl.

Rating: 5 /5

 

L: Colorbar Take Me As I Am Lip Color “Sensuous Red” :

Colorbar Take Me as I am Lip Color "Sensuous Red" Swatch

Colorbar Take Me as I am Lip Color “Sensuous Red” Swatch

Color Description: Very bold orange with red tones in a creamy matte finish.

Price : 800 Rs.

Very glamorous shade and a fuss free formula. Comes in chubby pencil form and highly pigmented. Looks very pretty in person and instantly brightens up the complexion. Even though this shade has yellow tones but it doesn’t make me look sick rather it just brightens up my complexion even without any base makeup.

Rating: 5 /5

My favorite among these are MAC Ruby Woo, L’Oreal Lincoln Rose, Flaming Kiss and Colorbar Sensuous Red. Lakme Red Carpet and Runway Red and Revlon Crimson are also very pretty shade wise, but they are more of winter-y shades for me. For everyday college going girls may try Revlon lip butter cherry tart or Revlon red lacquer.
