Oxblood Red Pantone Swatch

It’s fall, that means longer sleeves, colder weather (in Canada at least) and the start of the festive season. While Barbie-style pink lipstick has been a strong trend this year, I think fall marks the end of that trend. And I’m happy about it actually. I’m kind of over it, and it wasn’t a flattering colour on the wearer most of the time.  But the colour du saison? Oxblood!

I love this colour, it is so rich, classy and elegant. More importantly though, it suits many Indian skin tones. Check it out on Priyanka Chopra on her People Magazine cover from last year:

Katrina Kaif also rocked this lip cover, but for Elle Magazine:

And finally, here is Deepika Padukone with oxblood lips from an old Maybelline advert:

Investing in oxblood-like lipstick, gloss or even nail polish makes sense to me as it really is timeless. MissMalini readers, do you like this colour? Are you going to rock it this season?
