All that gift-buying has left you counting change. You need a new lipstick shade for that big party tonight. And you are like, oh my gawd, what do I do now?
You may need a pricey base for flawless make-up, but a low-cost lipper in a great shade is just as good. (We saw Yatan Ahluwalia and Mehera Kolah use less expensive brands for lips backstage at Wills India Fashion Week.) So with the colour trends changing practically every other week, we suggest you invest in a bunch of budget lipsticks.
Here are our Trendy Tester’s fave brands for the season
