Like me, there might be many ladies out there who prefer to keep their makeup pretty simple. All you need is a bit of foundation, an eyeliner or mascara, a slight use of blush and a gorgeous shade of lip color. Now whether you are light makeup wearer or someone who loves to play with makeup, a lipstick is a must. Personally, it is my most favorite and go-to cosmetic product for any occasion. 

Lipsticks not only make your lips look full and gorgeous within seconds, but is also an easy and fun way to enhance your look. In addition to this, lipsticks are also a mood-enhancer and make the wearer look and feel more beautiful and confident. This is the reason, why be it a simple private get-together with friends, a social gathering, a night-out at a pub, a party, wedding or engagement, lipsticks are a pretty lady's dependable and very handy makeup product. 

Viewing the really good number of lipstick brands available in the market and the increasing use of this simple but powerful makeup tool, I thought of making a list of some key selling lipstick brands in India. The below given lipstick brands have been put up, based on their popularity, overall good reviews and ease of availability.

1) Lakme

Lakme  (from Hindustan Lever) requires absolutely no introduction. This is one brand that nearly every woman in India who is into beauty or looking good for special occasions would have tried at some point in their life. One of the oldest and most popular cosmetic companies in the country, Lakme stands tall due to their varied range of makeup and skincare products, their know-how about Indian consumer market and their  aggressive advertising strategies. No wonder, Lakme also aces in the lip color category by offering long lasting, vibrant and quality lipsticks in various shades and textures while also tempting their consumers further by offering them in different price brackets.
