Swatch Watch: Best Pink Lipsticks For Medium-Fair Indian Skin Tone

Top 13 Pink Lipsticks For Medium-Fair Indian Skin Tone

Aha! I know you have been waiting for me to come to my pink lipstick stash soon and my apology for the delay. Actually after swatching the 18 pink lipsticks from my collection, I thought I would not be having enough of lip colors to add to the pink family again. Of course  with my kind of lipstick love, it almost sounds impossible to be true. 😛 So I decided to get my facts correct and started counting my pink lipsticks again. Not surprisingly, I found 13 beautiful new additions that I must talk about…hence the post today!

Do check out the previous post on my pink lipstick collection I have linked to as well, cause that has some amazing pink lipsticks for you to go through and choose from. 🙂

All swatches and recommendations on the basis of my complexion medium-fair with neutral undertones (MAC NC35)

Lets move on to the lipsticks: (individual reviews linked to the titles wherever applicable)

A. L”Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick “Rose Mademoiselle” : 

L'Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick "Rose Mademoiselle" Swatch

L’Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick “Rose Mademoiselle” Swatch

Color Description: A sheer mauve pink

Price: INR 499/- for 4.5 ml 

A sheer pink with a hint of mauve and silver that clashes with my skin tone badly. 😛 I am wheatish. If you are one or two tone lighter than me, this would be a great everyday wear pink shade for you. The formula is very buttery which almost feels oily to me. Rose Mademoiselle stays on for around 3 hours on me. A tricky shade for Indian skin tone. Pick it up only if you are sure about the color.

My Rating: 3 out of 5

 

B. Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine Lipgloss “Candy Shine” :

Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine 3D Lip Gloss "Candy Shine" Swatch

Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine 3D Lip Gloss “Candy Shine” Swatch

Color Description: A candy pink juicy lip gloss

Price: INR 450/- for 3 ml 

Probably the shade that got me started with lip-glosses again this winter. A bright candy pink that goes semi sheer on lips and is perfect for everyday use in spite of the shimmers in the formula. Stays on for 4 hours easily. A must have for gloss lovers.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5

 

 

C. NATIO Lipstick “Spring” :

Natio Lip Color "Spring" Swatch

Natio Lip Color “Spring” Swatch

Color Description: A plummy pink with a hint of brown

Price: INR 895/- for 3 ml 

This shade can be called as a much more wearable version of MAC Amorous as far as medium and fair complexion goes. This has enough pink to not clash with your complexion, but also has the plum tone mixed with a lot of brown to make it just perfect for office goers. The shade “Spring” has a wear time of about 3 to 4 hours. It is expensive, but the texture is totally comparable to MAC imo.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

D. Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick “Dream Fuchsia” :

Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick "Dream Fuchsia" Swatch

Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick “Dream Fuchsia” Swatch

Color Description: Bright mauve Pink (with a hint of frost)

Price: INR 339/- for 3.8 gm

Dream Fuchsia is no way a fuchsia to be precise. Its an out and out bright mauve pink with a hint of silver frost that surprisingly looks good on lips. Best suited for the medium toned people, its a great creamy and pigmented lipstick. It stays on for around 3-4 hours, transfers a lot and stains a little. Not a must have,but a good option if you love mauve lipsticks in general.

My Rating: 3.25 out of 5

 

E. Street Wear Color Rich Lipstick “Pink Satin”:

StreetWear Color Rich Lipstick "Pink Satin" Swatch

StreetWear Color Rich Lipstick “Pink Satin” Swatch

Color Description: A medium pink with a hint of red

Price: INR 160/- for 3.5 gm

Pink Satin is a great option for girls with a limited budget. The formula is amazingly creamy, the coverage is good with 2-3 swipes and it stays on for a decent 3 hours. At that price, It is  a steal and this color rich range offers some wonderful shades you can experiment with.

My Rating: 3.85 out of 5

 

 

F. Lakme Absolute Plump & Shine Lip Gloss “Mauve Shine” :

Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine 3D Lip Gloss "Mauve Shine" Swatch

Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine 3D Lip Gloss “Mauve Shine” Swatch

Color Description: Mauve Pink lip gloss

Price: INR 450/- for 3ml

Again one of my favorite even though it is a mauve. 🙂 Mauve shine is a great mauve color with the right amount of pink in it to go well on almost all Indian skin tones. Stays on for around 4 hours it has a creamy glossy formula that is apt for everyday use.

My Rating: 4.25 out of 5

 

 

G. Faces Mineral Lipstick “Passion Rose” :

Faces Mineral Lipstick "Passion Rose" Swatch

Faces Mineral Lipstick “Passion Rose” Swatch

Color Description: A Mauve-purple Pink

Price: INR 399/- for 4.2 gm (old price. not sure about the revised price)

Passion rose was officially my first mauve experiment. I did like it a lot for some time, but then  am not too comfortable with mauves ,so this has taken a back seat now. The strong purple tone makes it a must have for those who like mauve and purple lip colors. It goes well with ethnic wears as well as casual outfits. Formula is satiny and sets into a matte finish with time giving it around 4 hours of wear time.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

H. Faces Cosmetics Lipstick “Starlette”:

Faces Glam On Lipstick "Starlette" Swatch

Faces Glam On Lipstick “Starlette” Swatch

Color Description: Plummy Magenta Pink

Price: INR 250/- for 4 gm

Relaunched as the Faces Glam-On lipsticks for 499/- now

Faces Starlette has been one shade I have talked as much as Ruby Woo on ETM. 😛 Reason of course is the great color, texture and the similarity with MAC Rebel. If you like bold shades on yourself, Starlette is a must have for you. 🙂

My Rating: 5 out of 5

I. Lotus Herbals Purestay Lipstick “Fuchsia Smile”:

Lotus Herbals Purestay Long Stay Lipstick "Fuchsia Smile" Swatch

Lotus Herbals Purestay Long Stay Lipstick “Fuchsia Smile” Swatch

Color Description: Blue based fuchsia pink.

Price: INR 495/- for 4.2 gm

“Fuchsia Smile” is very similar to what the name suggests. A happy and chirpy fuchsia with strong blue undertone. If your skin has pink undertone then it will stand out beautifully on you. It does look nice on wheatish and medium skin tone as well. So no worries there. The formula is waxy and difficult to put on lips in one single swipe. Like the wax color crayons we used in school, it has to be rubbed on and on for the true color to show up, but once it does, it feels like second skin and stays put for the whole day. With time the bullet shrinks and separates from the base even if you handle it with care. So don’t get it if you are not fond of breaking lipsticks. The color however makes up for it imo.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

J. Maybelline Bold Matte lipstick MAT 1:

Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick "MAT 1" Swatch

Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick “MAT 1” Swatch

Color Description: Almost neon coral pink

Price: INR 375/- for 3.5 gm

These bold matte lipsticks have one of the best formula as far as drugstore brands go. MAT 1 is a beautiful coral pink with a lot of neon-ness about it. However the air whipped soft formula makes it a very wearable color. If bold and brights are your thing you got to own MAT 1.

My Rating: 4 out of 5

 

K. Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick “POW 4” :

Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick "POW 4" Swatch

Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick “POW 4” Swatch

Color Description: Bright, almost neon coral pink

Price: INR 375/- for 3.9 gm

POW 4 is the creamier version of MAT 1 from the bold matte range. Even though it looks pinker in bullet it is exactly the same on lips. The creamy and super pigmented formula makes POW 4 stands out a lot more bold in comparision though! Also it stays on longer than MAT 1, (5+ hours) so you can pick one of these according to your taste for your bright color fix.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5

 

L. Lakme Gloss Addict Lipstick “Desert Rose”:

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lipstick "Desert Rose" Swatch

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lipstick “Desert Rose” Swatch

Color Description: A juicy light baby pink with a hint of peach

Price: INR 800/- for 4 ml

Desert rose has been my favorite lipstick ever since I got my hands on it. The juicy, hydraing formula makes it a perfect choice for people with dry lips. The color is a pretty baby pink that would be perfect on medium fair to fair complexion. Staying power is around 3 hours and it heals dry lips like a balm.

My Rating: 4.85 out of 5

 

 

M. Avon Ultra color Matte Lipstick “Matte Lily”:

Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipstick "Matte Lily" Swatch

Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipstick “Matte Lily” Swatch

Color Description: A bright candy pink with a faint hint of mauve

Price: INR 375/- for 3.8 gm

One of the newest addition to my stash, Matte Lily is very similar to how “MAC Viva Glam Nicki” looks on the rosy fair white beauties. No they are not dupes at all. It is way more pinker and not at all milky, but that’s what works in favour of the color in making it work on Indian skin. If you always wanted to wear that shade from MAC but it washed you out badly, then try this instead. 🙂 Most suitable for medium fair to fair complexion, Matte lily is a pretty bright pink lipstick to own. The formula is very creamy and intensely pigmented, however its not matte at all. It stays on for around 3 hours on me.

My Rating: 3.85 out of 5

That wraps of my post on the pink lipsticks I like in my collection. Apart from “MAC Speak Louder” & “NYX San Paulo” (from my last swatch post on pink lipsticks), I absolutely love “Faces Starlette” and Lakme “Desert Rose” .

For those who like their lips to do the talking would love the bright Maybelline MAT 1, POW 4 and Avon “Matte Lily” a lot too.

What about you? What are your favorites from the lot? Any pink lipstick we share in common? Do comment and let me know. Would love to know more about your favorite pink lipsticks. 😀
