HUDA Beauty Vixen Liquid Matte Lipstick 1

Which are the Best Liquid Lipsticks in India ? Ever since the concept of a liquid lipstick has emerged in the beauty industry, the entire world has gone gaga over it. I mean, it makes sense if you think about it, they tend to be more hassle-free than an ordinary bullet lipstick, and you get any type of finish that you desire, from mattes to satin to a good old gloss.

A liquid lipstick generally is loaded with color-saturated pigments which give you ample coverage in one single swipe & lasts for a good amount of time.

I’ll share with you some of the best affordable and high-end liquid lipsticks available in the market that will get all the compliments rolling at you. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

  1. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip color (Rs 1900 – 5ml)

This needs no introduction. Mac is a renowned brand, you can never ever go wrong with a Mac lipstick and this particular liquid lipstick formula is everything! You don’t even have to redip the wand, with just one swipe and you get full matte, long-lasting coverage, and vibrancy. They have 24 stunning shades in this range and all of them are head turners! Certainly worth the hype.

MAC Transformed Liquid Retro Matte Lip Colors 3

  1. Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick (Rs 1650 – 5ml )

Once again, you know this is a cult favorite. A very good lightweight, transfer proof liquid lip with the intense color payoff. These liquid lipsticks are absolutely worth the splurge. These are available in 27 shades.

HUDA Beauty Vixen Liquid Matte Lipstick 1

  1. Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick (Rs 2050 – 4ml)

This is the most long-lasting matte liquid lipstick that I have come across, hence true to its name. This has a beautiful matte finish which is non – drying. They have 39 unique shades and I will highly recommend this to everyone.

  1. NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream (Rs 600 – 8 Ml)

If you want a soft matte creamy liquid lipstick which hugs your lips beautifully this is definitely made for you. The formula is really soft and buttery and the smell is to die for. It’s perfect for everyday use because it will not dry out the lips. This range offers 27 shades.

  1. Wet N Wild Mega last Catsuit Matte Lipstick (Rs 499 – 6 Gm)

Wet and wild products have always amazed me, they offer such good quality and affordable cosmetics, and moreover, they are cruelty-free. This liquid lipstick is totally matte, kiss proof, pigmented and will last for a good time unless you eat extremely oily food. These come in 10 shades.

  1. Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream (Rs 295 – 6.5 Gm)

This is hands down the best affordable liquid lip in the Indian market. These are the exact dupes of the NYX soft matte lip cream. I found absolutely no difference in the two moreover I like these better than the NYX ones because of their creaminess. They are super comfortable to wear and have a beautiful color payoff. You will have to try these once in your life and plus they have 64 shades! Whaaaaaat!

  1. Lakme 9 To 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour (Rs 625 – 9 Gm)

I own three of these and trust me they are mind-blowing! You can use this both in your cheeks and lips as the name suggests. These dry down to a velvety matte finish and smells like vanilla cupcakes! You get a full color payoff in a swipe. These are suitable for everyday use as they feel feathery soft but keep in mind they are not very long lasting. This 9 to 5 range has 20 shades.

Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour Blush Velvet Review 5

  1. Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream (Rs 1050 – 6 Gm)

This dries to a powder matte finish, will last up to several meals and is completely transfer proof and nontacky. If you’re looking for a liquid lipstick which will last all throughout the night, this one will be your best friend. The pigment is opaque and rich. They have 17 shades.

Swiss Beauty Ultimate Shadow Palette No 6 1

Who is it for? Want the best quality eyeshadows without breaking the bank? Swiss Beauty Ultimate Shadow Palette No 6  will certainly not disappoint you.

Price –

Rs 199 for 9 colours.

How to use –

First and foremost with not just this, but with any eyeshadows, prep your eyelids beforehand with some eye primer or concealer so that the colors pop better and the eyeshadow lasts longer.

This eyeshadow palette contains of 7 mattes and 2 shimmer shades. So, I’d suggest you to use the shimmer shades with your fingers to get the maximum color payoff.

Whereas the matte shades are concerned, they perform surprisingly well with all kinds of eyeshadow brushes.

My experience with Swiss Beauty Ultimate Shadow Palette  06

Honestly, I was never aware that Swiss Beauty made such good quality eyeshadows as it is quite a lesser known brand. In fact, I got this palette as a gift and the moment I swatched these, I knew this was going to be a good one.

They have got a lot of variety in these when I checked online but they are usually out of stock, so you may need to do some digging. I happen to have number 6.

There is a possibility that your local market keeps them, so you can look for them there.

I live for the coral and pinky vibes that this palette has plus they are so easy to work with.

They do not have a huge amount of fallout although you may notice it with some colors but that’s totally okay.

Just brush off the excess with a fan brush and voila!

Now let’s talk about the pigmentation. My mind was legit blown! I’m not even exaggerating this, but the matte shades are so buttery soft and smooth.

You can easily compare it to any high-end eyeshadow.

However, the shimmers are on the okay side they don’t show up easily on the lids but you can spray some fix+ into your brush to make them work better.

Swiss Beauty Ultimate Shadow Palette No 6

Packaging -

This comes in a black transparent plastic square box with Swiss Beauty Ultimate Shadow Palette written on top and on the back you find some general information like manufacturing date, expiry, etc.

Pros –
  1. Travel-friendly.
  2. Budget-friendly.
  3. Great pigmentation.
  4. Less fallout.
  5. Both mattes and shimmers included.
  6. A versatile palette.
  7. Ideal for everyday use.
  8. Good staying power.
Cons –
  1. No mirror.
  2. No applicator (which is actually better than those dumb sponge applicators)

Will I recommend?

Thousand times yes! I bet you’ll never find creamy & pigmented eyeshadows like these at such a price point anywhere else.

Please try it.
