Can't find the perfect lipstick colour? Or that Limited Edition one isn't being made anymore? Sabrina Suhail, the first in India to be customising lipsticks and the global first to customise matte liquid lip colour, will make you any shade. Prices start at INR 2,700, and we love that this brand is local. Say hello to Tinge By Sabrina Suhail. Oh, and did we mention it's vegan and cruelty free?
If you know Sabrina Suhail’s work, you know she always pushes limits of creativity. So when I heard she’s customising lip colour, it was a smart move to go pronto to get my “own” colour. I set off to her studio in Ulsoor, where here I was, in her studio. After asking me what kind of colour I would prefer -- darkish, long-lasting and versatile, like a Renaissance artist she starts mixing. Making notes on her chart, we arrive at something bright and purple. I try it on. I like it but her advice is that it may be too much for office wear. So the expert blend in some brown to balance the hue. I can already see the results and I'm thrilled with how it looks. Upon trying it, I know it'll be my favourite instantly. It's called Plum.
You can choose to have a lipstick version, or a liquid colour option. I've picked liquid because it's low maintenance and longer lasting. After research on Sabrina and my part, we deduce that she’s likely the first, and currently only, person in the world who created matte liquid colour. Naturally, I’m feeling even more important, and you should make sure to hit up her studio soon to be one of those first few to have this customised product!
Apart from the colour, you can even get an aroma for the colour. I was instantly drawn to the peppermint one, named After 8. Other options include a citrusy Mandarin berry, a stronger coconut and strawberry, gentle vanilla and a fruity Guava Pineapple. Check out the few cream blushers that she has. I am dying to trying them!
