Mindy Kaling Shares Favorite Lipstick Shades on Instagram: Shop the Beauty Products!

Sharing is caring—that’s a motto Mindy Kaling stands by!

On Monday, Sept. 22, the Mindy Project comedienne, 35, shared one of her beauty secrets with the world: her two favorite lipstick colors.

As noted on Kaling’s Instagram page, the former Office actress has two favorite statement lipstick shades, both by Julie Hewett: The first is a vampy, burgundy shade called Film Noir (above, left), one of the nine shades in Hewett’s Noir collection. The second color is a bright fuchsia called Scarlett, one of three Icon of Beauty hues.

The Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? author also included Hewett’s Camellia Lip Balm Pot in the shot. The “Rose” shade she snapped (which boasts camellia, orange, and rose oils) can be used to sooth dry lips, making it a perfect primer and pre-lipstick application.

It comes as no surprise that these bold shades would be counted among Kaling’s favorites, as she loves a bold statement lip: On Sept. 12, Kaling colored her kisser in a lovely plum shade (above), but she’s also been spotted on the red carpet wearing cherry red and shocking pink tones.

All three products are available to shop at Dermstore’s online shop. Both lipsticks retail for $24, while the balm sells at $22.
