Growing up, one common thing that all us girls can relate to is our never-ending obsession with lipsticks. Right? For the majority, it started right at home in front of the dresser, trying to unevenly glide our mother’s lipsticks and trying to look as cool as possible. Well, that’s the thing about lipsticks – they are magical. Because they are guaranteed mood lifters and can easily elevate your look from drab to dazzling in a jiffy. So, on World Lipstick Day today, we take a moment to draw some much-needed lipstick inspiration from the leading ladies of Bollywood.
Here are five lipstick shades that have the celebrity stamp of approval, which means you need to get your hands on them, RN!

Girls, if you are in search of a lip shade that is not quite red nor quite orange, then this one right here, donned by Deepika Padukone, is your answer. To get this look, grab the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint – Atomic Coral that has an intense matte finish and intense colour payoff. Full scores to the fact that it comes in a user-friendly pot along with an expert brush to help you perfectly define your lips like a pro.
2. Nude brown

We totally recommend you to have at least one nude lipstick in your makeup stash. Not only can it be worn as is, but it can also be layered with other softer lip shades. Take cues from Hina Khan’s nude brown lipstick and get yourself the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color With Argan Oil – Brunch Nude. As the name suggests, it is infused with nourishing argan oil and gives a soft velvety matte finish.
3. Deep red

The sheer power of a vivacious red lipstick is unmatchable. We LOVE Kriti Sanon’s choice of red shade that flatters her and the outfit so well. You, too, can recreate this look for a wedding function or a dinner date night with the help of Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Rhythmic Red. Not only is it a superior liquid matte shade, but it also is transfer-proof and will sit on your lips throughout the day (and night) without feeling uncomfortable.

Just like a classic red, you cannot ignore the elegance of a nice wine-hued lipstick. Case in point, Yami Gautam and her effortless look that doesn’t require any other makeup on your face but just a cool wine lip shade and voila, you’re good to go! We suggest the Lakmé Forever Matte Liquid Lip Color - Wine Glow, which stays on for over 20 hours and feels super lightweight on the lips.
5. Light pink

No woman ever said no to a pretty pink lipstick, neither should you. Shraddha Kapoor is proof that the right pink lipstick can really be your best companion for literally any occasion. Bookmark this look and make sure to include the Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Creme Lip Color - Pink Affair CP7 in your vanity. With shea butter, vitamin E and a built-in primer, in just one stroke it lends a vivid colour tint and feels super creamy on lips.
