  • For girls like me, who has typical Indian complexion, you can choose over a wide range of shades. For example : Peach, nude pinks, all neutral, light brown and cappuccino shades, red with slight orange glimpse will look amazing.
  • For girls having darker complexion, try to avoid some shades like, purple, hues, orange, nude brown and silver. You can go for deep reds, maroons, magenta, and browns. Marsala shade is just made for you girls.
  • For fairer looking girls, I think neutrals look little clumsy. I would suggest you to go for some pinks, peaches and some darker shades of lipstick.

  • But remember never ever compromise with the quality, I would say it is better to have single good quality lip gloss rather than lots of cheap items.
  • Make sure you read the ingredients before you make the final choice.

  • If you are buying some flavored lip gloss, then please check it well before you buy, because they often smells good but tastes awful.
  • You can also keep some neutral shades even if they don’t suit you. You can keep them as a shimmer, just apply over your favorite lipstick to take your look to the next level.
  • They are best to get a fresh and soothing look.

Lip glosses are unique and you need to wear them with a sweet smile to steal the hearts 🙂 My personal favorites are peaches, pinks and nudes. What are yours?
