What a mouthful.

I just call it Carmindy Lipsticks.

I've written about these lipsticks before but not on this shade. Its about the most natural looking shade on my lips and for my NC 40 skin tone. A burst of mauve with microscopic particles of bronze with a hint of brown and pink. I read somewhere once that the best lipstick for anyone would be a shade that was closest to the color of their gums / inside of the mouth. This shade is pretty close for me.

I've been wearing this almost everyday since I laid my hands on it. Its the one I go to when I dont wanna think about what to wear. The last time I was this crazy about a shade , it was Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick - Baby Baby.

This shade, Sunbeam, was specifically recommended for summer by Carmindy herself to get a luminous natural look ! Its the perfect lipstick if that's the look you are going for. Say Aishwarya Rai at the French Open - looking so natural yet & pretty. with the soft makeup. That's exactly what this shade does to me.

More good things - decent packaging, no scent, no taste, very moisturizing, $7, available at drugstores. Also with 'very moisturing' comes the part about not so long staying...

Have you tried any lipsticks from this range ? If not - you must give it a go. Keep the receipt handy if the shade doesn't work out for your skin tone :)

Looks so pretty! Will it work on pigmented lips though? I'm NC40 too but my upper lip is pretty pigmented!

Hi Anon !

I am the same way - upper lip more piggy than the lower lip :( I am an NC 0 and it shows well pretty well on me. If yours are a bit more pigmented they might appear sheer...
Either ways I'd get them from CVS coz they have a 100 % money bk thingy if we dont like the pdt !
Lemme know if you try it !

so you can really return makeup to CVS if you dont like it? I didnt know that, do you have a recommendation for NC42? do you think this same color would work?

Hi Anon #2 ! (gimme names girls , I'll remmeber you better that way !)

Yup ! They even have it up on their TV ads !
You know my next review will be on this shade from Carmindy called Seashell nude. Its super duper gorgeous too and should work for NC 42 !

Hi Indian Girl,

So I was at ULTA today, and there were Carmindy lipsticks on sale for 2.99 ... and I originally had gotten Champagne Rose a few days ago, but the color was too close to my natural lip color. I returned it today and got Sunbeam, after reading your review, and I love it!
I don't know if your ULTA has the same sales, but I just wanted to let you know, since these lipsticks are amazing :)
