My favorite neutral/natural lipsticks: Swatches and FOTDs
When I first started wearing lipsticks, I first had a fixation for pinks followed by a love for reds (read Revlon Colorburst ‘Crimson’ 🙂 ). My current favorites are however neutral/natural shades. I like my nude/neutral lipsticks to have a hint of color otherwise it gives a washed out look to the face. The beauty of such shades as compared to completely nude shades is that they can be worn on their own as well as paired with dramatic eye makeup!
Here is my collection of neutral/natural shade lipsticks-
1. Maybelline color sensational ‘My Mahogany’ (Price- Rs 299)
Nude shade with warm pink undertone.
2. Colorbar longwear ‘En Vogue’ (Price- Rs 440)
Cool toned nude pink shade
3. Lakme Satin enrich #133 (Rs 225)
Warm peachy-brown nude shade with slight pink undertone.
4. Colorbar DIVA ‘Dress to Impress’ (Rs 350)
Mid tone pink with a mauve undertone.
5. Chambor Silk touch ‘Silk Woods’ (Rs 525)
Brown based nude shade.
6. Lotus herbals pure color ‘Rosewood’ (Rs 225)
Warm brownish-pink shade- gives a very natural look.
7. Lakme enrich matte #263 (Rs 225)
Peachy-brown shade a pink undertone.
My favorites among these are Lakme enrich #133, Colorbar DIVA ‘Dress to Impress’, Lotus pure color ‘Rosewood’ and Lakme enrich matte #263.

Colorbar Diva dress to impress… awesome colour!
Its is an awesome color Anks..just the right amount of color to still pass off as a natural shade!
133…one day you’ll be mine!! Although now I think it will probably be too pale for me. They are all really pretty.

I don’t like Silk woods so much..its too nude. You’ll love the Colorbar..it is such a versatile shade! I haven’t Amway yet..will do sometime if I find a consultant. I will check out Brick though..a lot of people have recommended it to me! 🙂
Hey Ankita, have been reading your blog for quite a while now so it’s about time that I make my presence know! You’re doing a fabulous job here 🙂 Keep it up!
I own two of the shades you mention here and I love them both! Didn’t you find lakme # 263 a little dry though? Also, the lipstick kinda ditched me and broke into two, any suggestions on what I can do to resurrect it?
You made my day Rini 🙂 I’m glad you enjoy reading my blog..
I do find Lakme #263 drying after some time but I generally top it gloss if it feels too drying. You could store it in a small container like a pot or lip balm container and use it with a brush. Like Esha suggested you could watch a few tuts online how to do that 🙂
Rini there are lots of video tutorials on how to either depot the whole lipstick or restore them back into the lipstick bullet. Good luck with it.
nice post ankita..very helpful
Thanks Pavani 🙂
I love all the shades …make a list and wanna brag them all….
😛 😛 Do get the Lotus one and the lakme ones..they are very nice shades!! And the colorbar DIVA also! 😀
which eyeshadow have you applied on your eyelids……..makes you look pretty and suspicious….
I’ve applied Bourjois clubbing liner ‘Brown vibes’ and smudged it with a brush to use it as an eyeshadow 🙂
