How many times have you let your mood decide your outfit for the day? One too many times. Same is the case with lipsticks. It's the easiest way to tell people how you’re feeling without telling them how you’re feeling… you get me? Feeling brave and powerful? Sweep on a bold red. Woke up on the right side of the bed? A peppy pink will show that you’re in a good mood. Feeling meh?
A dark brown lipstick will ask them to keep their distance. Lipsticks do so much more than perk up your pretty face, and that’s why it’s necessary to have the right ones in your arsenal. We have picked out five lip shades for every mood and occasion that you can try out because, as someone great once said — even during a bad day, you always have lipsticks!
- Nude - for those relaxed, lazy outings
- Red - for those fun party evenings
- Brown - for those long, stressful meetings
- Pink - for those happy, calming meetups
- Plum - for those romantic date nights
Nude - for those relaxed, lazy outings
Heading out for Sunday brunch or a casual meet up with friends? Take inspiration from our girl Gigi Hadid and go for a nude lipstick like the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint - Alluring Nude. This intense, velvety matte lip colour comes in a paint pot with an expert brush that helps you define your lips like a pro.
Just dip the brush into the pot, define the border of your lips and then fill them up and you’re good to go. We love how this lipstick is smooth and lightweight on the lips and lasts all day long.

We firmly believe that you can never go wrong with red lipstick. So, the next time you’re feeling fierce, take cues from Sonam Kapoor and sweep on a bold shade of red like the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Firestarter Red. With a lightweight, long-lasting formula, this lip colour gives you a lush, matte look with silky comfort.

Have an important Zoom meeting or presentation at the office? Well, take a leaf out of Kiara Advani’s stylebook and put on a nice shade of brown lipstick like the Lakmé Matte Revolution Lip Color - Vintage Rust. Infused with the goodness of raspberry seed oil, this matte lipstick has a creamy light formula that lasts all day long without putting a drying effect. It smoothly glides over your lips and gives intense colour payoff in a single application, and is lightweight too.
Pink - for those happy, calming meetups

Pink is a must-have hue in every girl’s lipstick collection. This colour adds a soft touch to your look and is perfect for your casual meetups with your buddies. Just like Shraddha Kapoor, you can keep your base minimal and add a dash of pink lipstick to bring together the whole look. We suggest the Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Creme Lip Color - Pink Shock for this. This lipstick is enriched with shea butter and vitamin E that moisturises and condition your lips, while the built-in primer keeps it from budging all day long.
Plum - for those romantic date nights

Are you planning your look for a romantic date night? We suggest going with an intense plum lip shade like Lily Collins. The shade adds a character to your lips and looks fantastic. Try the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint - Black Cherry for this. Start by dipping the expert brush that comes with this lip colour in the paint pot and outlining your lips. Once you have defined the borders, fill the rest of your lips with this intense matte colour, and that’s it; you are ready to slay.
