Some days, I walk out of the house without my wallet (I can be a little ditzy) but I never, ever leave my house without at least 3 lipsticks in my bag. It’s probably why I love this online store I came across on Instagram while going through tons of beauty blogs, called Luaer. Luaer’s focused on simplicity; their range of lipsticks is cruelty-free and natural and free from parabens.
Every lipstick shade has a woman’s name which is another personal touch I loved (sadly, no lipstick called Saloni yet.) They had a few brown-y nudes and pinks, as well as reds. I like to stick to deep nudes so I got the shade ‘Arya’ which is a mauve-nude. It had a really nice creamy matte finish so it was comfortable to wear the entire day. I also loved the look of the ‘Noor’ shade which was a deep red but I didn’t end up getting it since these aren’t the cheapest lipsticks. I love how they show swatches on different skin tones so you can see if it’d work for you or not which is how I ended up picking ‘Arya’ over ‘Ira’ which was another nude I liked.
They also have a makeup remover that won at Harper’s Bazaar’s Conscious Beauty Awards. It’s a little pricey as far as makeup removers go but if you have sensitive skin that you don’t like messing with, it might be worth it for you.
Price: INR 900 for one lipstick
