But let’s check out the colorful side of this year! Yeah, we’re talking about the best lip shades that made the rounds this year.

Let’s check out a few of the best brands and their top trending lip shades this year. So, in case you missed out on the best, here’s your chance to grab before 2022 strikes 12!

Iba Cosmetics  

Now we’ve been going on and on about our favorite OG brands, but then now it’s time for a brand that’s been around for the past 7 years and they have made quite a major dent in the clean beauty, makeup, and skincare industry.

Iba Cosmetics is India’s first Halal Certified Brand. It is also PETA Certified, Cruelty-Free, and Vegan. The perfect blend of certifications that promise to deliver you nothing but the best and only the best. 

When it comes to selecting lipsticks from Iba, just pick whatever you like because the best part about picking lipsticks from Iba is that their lipsticks are free from pig fat, carmine, or alcohol, they are enriched with all-natural ingredients like sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, marula oil, etc.

So, now coming to the shades; Iba has a few of the best nudes and red that made the rounds in 2021. 

If we had to pick from the Long Stay Matte Range then Cinnamon Chai, Nude Alert, Apricot Blush, and among reds, it would have to be the new Urban Red. 

Now coming on to the Maxx Matte Liquid Lipstick Range – my favorite picks are Fresh Peach, Blissful Mocha, Cute Cocoa, Naughty Pink, and Mystique Maroon. 

We’ve picked a few of the best nudes shades and reds from Iba Cosmetics for your lovelies, be sure to get them here!


Now, this brand is every girl’s BFF! From lip shades to eye makeup to skincare and on to hair care, this brand has grown like ‘Jack and his Bean Stalk’. Their products are classy, glamorous yet are quite functional and their lip shades are sure to die for. 

So, let’s begin with my favorite – nude lipstick shades; nudes are just so versatile no matter what look you’re going for. Be it classy and simple or to complement super bold eyes, nude lips always change the game.

The first shade that made the rounds this year was Nykaa Molten Matte Lip & Cheek Colour – Rachel 101; a gorgeous caramel-like light brown. 

Next would be Nykaa Ultra Matte Lipstick – 09 Monalisa; the prettiest reddish brown with a little hint of pink. This shade is just the perfect lip shade for a dusky skin tone. 

If we had to pick a peachy nude then Nykaa MATTE-delicious Crayon Lipstick – Low Key 24 would rock.


All hail the OG Brand of makeup! Through our teens & early work or home lives, we always have a trusty Lakme lipstick in our purses! Make way for Lakme, this is one brand you can trust more than your partner! Lakme foundations and lipsticks are so awesome that you would never have to think twice about using their makeup. 

And when you have to pick the best, it would be a difficult task because the brand offers nothing but the best. Still, if we had to pick, I’d begin with Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick – PM11; this is just the shade for Christmas. This is a very pretty blend of pink and red, the perfect pop of color your look would need. 

The next shade would be Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick – PM15; another gorgeous popping pink shade for that perfect picnic date or brunch. Wear a gorgeous navy blue dress and go in for a no-makeup makeup look and just wear this lip shade and you’re sure to make someone go head over heels!

The next pretty shade is Lakme Enrich Matte Lipstick – PM14; a very beautiful nude pick to make you feel like a star for your afternoon winter trip to the prettily lit streets during Christmas. This shade is a killer when it comes to nudes, so fret not, just go and pick this!


Now this brand was and is luxury for the 90’s kids! Back then, if you owned something from Maybelline then it was nothing less than owning something from MAC today. Anything and everything from Maybelline has been a hit, but if we had to choose one lipstick and that one perfect shade; undoubtedly it would be Maybelline New York Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick, Matte Finish – 04 Easy Berry. 

This is a gorgeous pinkish nude but it isn’t as overly pink as you’d imagine. This is a gorgeous versatile pink that suits every Indian skin tone so you wouldn’t have to worry about the shade suiting part! Go on and shop now!

So that was 2021 best lip shades & hit products to give you gorgeous lips in a tiny nutshell for you guys and we hope you wrapped up this year on a happy and healthy note!
