5 Best Mauve Liquid Lipsticks

Liquid matte lipsticks are usually more pigmented than creamy lipsticks and have a longer staying power. Here are the best ones we found:

The LIT Liquid Matte Lipstick by MyGlamm - Draking

This liquid matte lipstick is a nude shade with hints of mauve. It’s highly pigmented, vegan-friendly, smudge-proof and transfer-proof. Enriched with moringa oil, this liquid lipstick won’t dry your lips out, but on the contrary, will keep them supple and pillow-soft. Once you apply it, it stays put on the lips for 12 hours.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick - Medusa

If you love a deeper mauve shade, you should pick this one up. It glides effortlessly on the lips and dries up in seconds. Since most liquid matte lipsticks tend to dry out the lips, this one won’t as it has antioxidants and helps to maintain the lips’ hydration. Since this mauve lip shade is such a bold colour, keep the rest of your makeup fresh and minimal and let your painted pout grab all the attention.

Lakme Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color - Mauve Mix

An important fact to take into consideration when bringing home this lipstick is that it has a velvet matte finish, feels feather-light and has an intense, bold colour pay off. This matte mauve lipstick feels so light on the lips, it will make you wonder if you’re wearing any product at all! If you’re left with excess product, you can apply it to your cheeks as it acts as a liquid blush too. 

Chambor Extreme Wear Transfer Proof Liquid Lipstick - Trendy Mauve No.405

5 Best Creamy Mauve Bullet Lipsticks

Bullet lipsticks usually have a creamy texture. If you’re someone who does not like liquid matte lipsticks because they make your pout dry and flaky, not to worry, you can give these creme mauve lipsticks a shot. There is a catch though. While they feel good on the lips, they don’t last for very long as compared to liquid matte lipsticks. You will have to reapply them at least twice or thrice a day. Nevertheless, they make that pout look so damn delicious!

Not only does it provide a rich colour to the pout, but it also keeps your lips nourished and hydrated for longer hours. Since it has a smooth, silky finish, it is prone to budging from the lips. To prevent this from happening, always keep tissues around.

This mauve lipstick for Indian skin tone is not only highly pigmented but also glides on with ease.
