BEAUTY BOX - Lip colors to rock Pujo 2013...

By Agnirupa, Guest editor

Hey there all you pretty ladies! I am writing a helpful *hopefully* post for you guys to reach out to whenever you feel confused and at sea in your overflowing lipstick drawer, while decked up in your puja attire *_* so bear with me :D
The red family : 

Now I think no woman is truly grown up until and unless she takes the bold step towards the perfect red lip along with a typical white saree with red border for ashtami :D. I myself have always been more inclined towards the blue-based reds, rich and matte like MAC Ruby Woo or Russian Red *along with looking sexy it makes teeth appear whiter*
But for those trying a red lip the first time this year, I recommend a sheerer finish in red. I love loreal Nutrishine strawberry juice for the 2nd category and it is 1 of my most frequently worn lippies for certainly I can’t wear the now famous Mac Russian Red on all ocassions!

In this picture I am wearing MAC Ruby Woo :)

Below is Ruby Woo and Russian Red swatched together : top- Ruby Woo bottom- Russian Red. 
And that's me, wearing Russian Red on my lips :)

The neutral family : 
A brick, a peachy brown, a perfect nude- these are far more important for a long day of pandal hopping in this humidity! They are easier to touch up and comes with 0 chance of going wrong !

My ultimate go-to lip color nowadays is the Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick in red chaos :D It is such a pretty muted peachy brick color that nobody can possibly go wrong with this! A must have in every handbag if you like a soft matte neutral lip to coordinate your day look <3

On days my lips cry out for something creamier and smoother I have my MAC Cosmo ^_^ it’s my official *can’t live without color* it is an universal pink brown color which fair-medium ladies rock the best as it can sometimes wash out darker complexions K do try it at the store before you buy J

That is a swatch of Mac Cosmo and MAC Cosmo on my lips :)
p.s- for an easy to wear nude you can go for maybelline Totally Toffee or Mac Mocha *_*

The pink family : I am not really a pinky pink gal :P I prefer my hot pinks and fuchsias or very bluey pinks to give a burst of color :D of course you can co-ordinate pinks with your dresses but I feel pinks look the best when worn with bold/block colors like black/white/grey/peacock blue :)

A very universal fuchsia pink is the MAC Girl About Town of which you can get a ton of dupes starting from faces flamboyant fuchsia to inglot no. 33 refill. Any complexion can carry off this fuchsia superbly and is 1 of my most worn lippies when I am feeling *pink* :D

p.s- for the glossy version of the same color try revlon lip butter in lollipop !
When I am feeling particularly adventurous I go for my MAC Impassioned, which can be viewed from a mile away :P but oh boy! Does it feel great to carry it off or what ^_^ if you find colors like these to be too loud you can always wear it as a stain.

p.s- an easily available version of this shade is maybelline superstay in eternal tose J its not a dupe but similar IMO

and my top pink is the very blue based MAC Pink pigeon ^_^ my face simply lights up whever I wear this! There are some misconceptions about the difficulty in wearing these pinks but really it just depends on how well you carry it ! if you wish to make the color warmer just wear it on top pf a nude liner and voila! You rock <3

Hope my gyan and picks comes in some use :D *don’t shoot me if you hate all my picks L* I did try! Muaahss dearies have a wonderful pujo!
