Met Gala, Cannes...every glitzy event this year has given us some seriously gorgeous beauty looks to drool over. You might wonder what’s new this time around? Well, it’s not the eyes or the outfits that are doing the talking. It’s the… LIPS. All of us know the power that a good lipstick holds, and so many celebs were seen unleashing it with soft nudes, dramatic reds and flushed pinks (many, many pinks, we must say!). The best part is that you can emulate your desired lip look with a trusty Lakmé lipstick. Trust us, there’s one for everybody.
Scroll on for our favorite lip looks of the season.
Gorgeous! Yup, we just used a Taylor Swift song to describe her glittering look. Apart from her shimmery dress, the lip color is winning our attention. With thick lashes, a defining brow and a flawless base, Taylor is giving us major party inspo with her striking pink lips. To get her look, add the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color in Rose Pink
to your cart that is packed with the nourishing Argan Oil. Result: an everlasting intense matte finish. This lippie comes with a great reputation (wink wink).
We can’t get enough of
Selena Gomez’s bold lip here. No wonder this was one of the best looks from Cannes this year. Of course, the white gown and diamond necklace are show stealers, but we can’t ignore the lipstick. After all, the timeless red and white combo can never go wrong. Get yourself the Magical Selena touch with a single shade — Firestarter Red from Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color
. The lush red feels light on the lips, is extremely long lasting and delivers a velvety, soft finish. The glittery lids and the thick lashes are a big bonus.
WOW! That’s how we feel after looking at Priyanka Chopra’s hot pink look. If you can’t take your eyes off her, we don’t blame you. Just look at that striking pink hue. It does light up the entire look, doesn’t it? If you crave a similar matte finish, our pick for you is the Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color in Pink Perfect
. The lipstick works as a primer too — flawless base, guaranteed! Did we mention that it stays on your lips for at least 12 hour? We don’t see why this color isn’t your favorite already.
The Game of Thrones
finale wasn’t satisfying but Emilia Clarke’s pink lip certainly is. The Mother of Dragons
(not anymore!) is winning our hearts with that smile and the subtle fuschia lip. Don’t worry, we aren’t overlooking the little flush on her cheeks. Wearing this look is a breeze with this one-swipe-and-you’re-done Fuchsia Suede from Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color
. This lightweight lip color is long lasting and sits pretty on your lips. And, how do you get Emilia’s English rose flush? A little dab on your cheeks with the same lip color — a dual winner, girlies!
Such a cutie! Let’s face it Katrina knows how to make a statement with a nude lip. She always keeps it simple but nails that minimalist makeup look with élan. After all, it’s an art to match two light colors with such elegance. This is why we’re currently crushing on the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Soft Nude
. With Argan Oil as its base, the nourishing lipstick has an intense, silky finish — all credits to the oh-so-creamy texture. It will shine on your lips as much as it does on Katrina.
Shraddha Kapoor loves a pink lip and rightly so. The gorgeous hue flatters her skin tone like a dream. For this look, she has paired her white outfit with a minimal base to make those lips sparkle. Our summer favorite is the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Matte Sticks Lipstick in Fuchsia Alley
. We not only love the bright tint but also the natural ingredients that it’s infused with — Aloe Vera and Honey. These ingredients will protect your lips from the harmful city pollution and the bright tint will give you the pop of color you deserve.
