These lipsticks perfect for everyday wear!!

1. MAC Taupe
MAC describes their lipstick Taupe as a muted reddish taupe brown. It applies much the same to give a nude with reddish undertones. On fairer tones it applies more brown but on medium to dusky tones it lends a more reddish hue. The lipstick has a matte finish but applies more creamy without emphasizing the lip lines. The formula lasts for up to several hours.

2. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita II
Kat Von D's Lolita ll is described as a terracotta nude, with orange and pink undertones. It dries to give a darker color and so is suitable for everyday wear. The formula is impeccable: it is very creamy that glides upon the lips effortlessly. It takes about a minute to set completely so there is always sufficient time to make amendments. They apply to give a full coverage with an impressive lasting power of 6 hours before starting to fade. The liquid lipstick does not flake, crack or emphasise the lip lines and is thus easier and comfortable to sport. All in all, this liquid lipstick by Kat Von D is love.

3. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare
Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick “Double Dare” is another favourite. It is described as a cocoa blush. Upon application, it gives a mauve shade with coral, brown undertones. It is an easy to carry color and thus is much suitable for everyday wear. We absolutely love this color. The lipstick has a creamy formula that goes on smooth and effortlessly. It gives an opaque coverage on a single swipe. The formula takes about 30 to 40 seconds to dry completely. Once set it doesn't relentlessly strip the lips of their natural moisture. We would still recommend exfoliating and prepping the lips beforehand.

4. NYX Matte Lip Cream In Antwerp
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp is a soft coral pink colour that is bright enough to perk up your look yet subtle enough to be worn everyday. The lip cream has a soft, creamy formula that glides effortlessly on the lips. It has a problem of being streaky or uneven, however, so you need to prep your lips before application. Following application it take a few minutes to settle into a matte finish and once set, it does not budge. Kudos!

5. Color Pop Frida
Color pop Frida: It is a warm mid tone nude pink with a satin finish. This is a lovely color that you can wear every day at work. It is similar to NARS Montego Bay.

6. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan is another favourite. A bright pink, it is the color that flatters almost every outfit and so is the color to go. Though if you have a dusky or dark complexion, it may wash you out.

7. MAC Velvet Teddy
MAC Velvet Teddy is a light brown with warm undertones. It is quite creamy for a matte finish, with a good opacity and a long lasting formula that doesn't need touch ups repeatedly. It is perfect for everyday wear.

8. MAC Meher
MAC Meher is a blue toned medium pink with a matte finish. It has a soft, creamy and moisturising formula that applies smoothly and effortlessly. Upon application it does not budge and lasts for upto several hours on the lips. We would again recommend exfoliating the lips before wearing this shade.

9. MAC Twig
MAC Twig is a soft muted brownish pink with a satin finish. It is particularly flattering on medium to dusky skin tones. The lipstick has a creamy formula and lasts for upto 5 hours of wear. It fades to give a light brown. It is a subtle and sophisticated color, more mature than playful and perfect for everyday use. What we love about this colour is that it has warm undertones and can be worn easily without washing out your face.

10. Diana of London #18 Hazelnut

Diana of London #18 Hazelnut 2000 Kisses Wonderful Lipstick is a beige toned brown with a warm undertone to it. The color is very beautiful and unlike most browns, doesn't overwhelm or age the face. The texture of the liquid lipstick is thick and creamy with an impressive pigmentation but still two swipes are required to get maximum coverage. Avoid pursing the lips before the formula has dried completely as it can cause the lipstick to transfer and end up looking patchy. It takes about a minute to settle into a matte finish and afterwards it doesn't budge or smudge. If you have very dry lips, you may want to exfoliate and moisturise beforehand. You will be pleasantly surprised at the lasting power of the formula!

11. Colorpop Ultra Matte Lip in Solow
Colorpop Ultra Matte Lip in Solow is a beautiful nude with pink hints. Without prior moisturising, it can be drying and flaky. Other than that it gives a good pigmentation and has a good lasting power. Wear it during the day or rock it with an intense black liner during the evening: it works both ways!

12. Medora Demure No. 561
Medora Demure is a beautiful peachy nude. It has a matte finish but the creamy formula helps along smooth and even application. The color flatters from fair to dusky skin tones but may wash out very dark skins. It has an average longevity of 3 to 4 hours and may need touch ups following every few hours depending on how frequently you eat or drink. Compare to others, it's performance may seem mediocre but for just USD 1 or PKR 100 it is one of the cheapest lipsticks available and offers a lot for the petty price. We are in love with this color and it is our go to for every day wear.

13. Wet N Wild  lipstick ' In The Flesh'
Wet N Wild  lipstick ' In The Flesh' is a peachy pink shade. It particularly flatters fair to medium skin tones but may wash out darker lipsticks. The lipstick is very creamy and gives an even application. It does not dry out lips and its matte formula may just be as good as MAC's for a quarter of the price, or even lesser! Plus, it's a close dupe to MAC's Twig.
