Hola, peeps!

Lipstick love is eternal. Can you tell me about one girl who doesn’t love that pop of colour on her lips? Every girl has a number of lipstick shades in her vanity but sometimes it happens, that some lipsticks don’t suit our skin tone. Either they are too dark for us or too light for our skin tone. Indian skin tone is probably one of the most versatile skin tones we have on our planet with people ranging from very fair to very dark!

Lipstick brands, when making lipsticks should consider all skin tones and make something for everyone. And we are here to compile. Here’s a compilation of Top 25 Lipstick shades that are apt for Indian skin tones. Enjoy!
