Top 5 Matte Lipsticks for Medium Skintone

Top 5 Matte Lipsticks for Medium Skintone

Hey guys! Its been like forever since I posted anything here and truth be told I have been kind of losing interest in anything makeup related. So much so that I have even stopped wearing makeup on a regular basis. Its just an eyebrow pencil, a little highlight on my nose and a liquid liner and I am kinda good to go... I am not sure what's really going on, it could just be a phase, I sure do hope that it is *crosses fingers*...

Anyways, I have however started a new travel blog of sorts. Its called My Infinite Wanderlust and I have been giving it a lot of my time and that could be one reason I have had no energy left to put here... But now that I am writing a post today I feel like I have truly missed writing about makeup and beauty and this may just be the impetus that I need to get my ass right back to being a part-time beauty blogger :)

So today I plan to share with you all my top 5 lipsticks that i think would suit anyone with a medium skin tone. These lipsticks are very easy to get your hands on, they are easily available in the Indian market, the shades are flattering and I for one feel that if you have these 5 shades in your kitty, you don't really need anything else...
So let's get started!

1. Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick - BM10

This is my go to MLBB shade because it not only compliments Indian skin tones, it also feels nourishing which at the same time gives a matte finish. It is literally the hardest thing to find a matte lipstick that doesn't feel drying and this little beauty from Lakme fits the bill...
The fact that it does not cost a bomb is another thing that makes it a favourite!
Price: INR 295/-

2. MAC Matte Lipstick - All Fired Up

Where do I even begin with this one! Matte lipsticks from MAC are my favourite and this gorgeous pink thing is genuinely my favourite of the lot. The shade is fun and fiercely feminine that gives an opaque, full coverage finish that stays for more than 7 hours on one's lips.
It glides on smoothly, is not very drying and mostly transfer proof!
Price: INR 1450/-

3. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - Dolce

Another super long stay lipstick with a matte finish, Stila Stay All Day Lippy in Dolce is a nude shade that would suit skin tones that range from light to medium. It has a pinkish undertone and can be very flattering when paired with some dramatic eye makeup.
It feels very light when applied and quickly dries up to a matte finish, it however requires you to exfoliate your lips before you apply it else it can tend to look flaky.
Price: INR 1800/-

4. MAC Matte Lipstick - Ruby Woo

This is a cult favourite and requires no introduction. However, for those who have just gotten onto the makeup scene and haven't heard about this shade, let me simply start by saying that this perhaps is the BEST red lipstick in the market. It is a Classic, Retro finish, vibrant Red shade with a gorgeous matte finish and it suits everyone. If in doubt wear MAC Ruby Woo!
Price: INR 1450/-

5. L'Oreal Paris Star Collection - Pure Amaranthe

A gorgeous, gorgeous shade of Magenta, which is warm, full coverage and has a creamy texture that gradually dries up to be matte. It is a full bodied pink that has the ability to look good on every kind of skin tone... I generally recommend this shade for festive makeup looks because I have noticed it look especially beautiful when paired with fancy, glittery outfits. It compliments Indian wear to the Tee and brings out a certain glow in one's complexion.
Price: INR 990/-

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
