I generally cling to bright bold shades as they give a pop of colour to the face but we cannot deny the necessity of subtle shades in our vanity.Here is where Mauves,nudes come in need.Below I’ve listed 5 Mauve lip colors in different formula and finish to suit everyone’s need!!
Revlon Colorburst lipstick Mauve 005-(Rs.600 for 3.7 gm )Mauve can be best described as a muted pinkish mauve with slight berry tones with gives it warmth and it looks amazing on any skin tone.Mauve is very hydrating.It feels light weight and non-sticky.
The texture is creamy with slight sheen that give healthy look to face.It brightens up my face and looks good when paired with any look.Staying power is around 3 hours leaving a slight tint on lips.
Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick- Rose xoxo-(rs.990 for 3 gms) Rose xoxo is a beautiful pearly mauve pink with silver shimmer in it.It is sheer but buildable.
The lipstick smoothly on lips and is very hydrating. The formula provides glossy finish to lips and gel-like feel. It is light weight and doesn’t settle in the lip lines. The finish is semi-sheer. It has light fruity fragrance which disappears within seconds of application.The shade is sheer but buildable to medium coverage with 2-3 swipes.However,it cannot provide full coverage as the shade is light.It stays for about 3-4 hours on my lips.
L’oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick- Mauve Cherie(102)-(Rs.499 for 2.5 gm) Mauve Cherie is a pretty everyday wear shade.It is mauve with subtle brown undertones.This shade can be an MLBB for many.It comes out differently on all skin tones but is flattering.
