Here's my video with lip swatches of all four shades of Sahi Cosmetics Lipsticks:
Each lipstick retails for $24.50 USD and contains 0.176 oz of product. 
Product Details

Each lipstick tube is 11.35 cm in height and contains 0.176 oz of product.

It features a flocked flat tip applicator, which gives an easy application.

There are currently 4 shades: 
  1. Alia - Deep Beige Nude
  2. Katrina - Cinnamon Nude
  3. Kajol - Vivid red with blue undertones
  4. Hope - Vivid pink
Here are swatches of all four shades:
Alia Deep Beige Nude
This shade is named after Bollywood actress, Alia Bhatt. It's a beige nude shade that will work well on someone with light to medium complexion but it doesn't complement my tan skin tone (for shade reference I'm NC40-NC42).
However, I  love pairing it up with lip liner or another lipstick. I've recently used it with MAC Soar lip liner and I love how it turned out. I also wore it on top of the shade Katrina.
Sahi Cosmetics Katrina and Alia
Katrina Cinnamon Nude
This one is also named after another Bollywood actress, Katrina Kaif. I love it! It complements my skin tone and I've been wearing this one a lot lately. This is the first Sahi Cosmetics lipstick that I've tried and I immediately fell in love. It was so comfortable on the lips and I love the color!
Kajol Vivid Red with blue undertones
This is my favorite from the collection! This beautiful red shade will complement a lot of skin tones. I love this red shade! It's also so easy to apply and feels very comfortable on the lips. It's named after Bollywood actress, Kajol.
Hope Vivid Pink
All proceeds of this shade go to UN Refuge Agency, which is amazing! I'm personally not a fan of this neon pink shade but a friend of mine paired it with Katrina and I loved that combination on her, so I will give it a try myself. However, I don't like how it looks on me when applied alone.
Finish: Matte with hint of gold shimmer (shimmer is barely noticeable)
Formula: Lipsticks are opaque and pigmented. They're easy to apply and go on so smoothly. I wore Katrina and Kajol on different days and they were quite comfortable on the lips. They're a bit drying but not as drying as most other liquid lipsticks (Kat Von D, ColourPop).
Wear Time: These lipsticks last throughout the day but if you eat oily/greasy food, these do slightly come off. I wore Katrina and it lasted me for 4-5 hours but then when I ate, it started to fade off. However, I love the fact that they fade away nicely and there's very minimal transfer. 
Overall, the lipsticks are pretty good! I'm impressed with the formula. I like how they are long wearing and don't dry out my lips compared to many other lipsticks out there. I can't wait to see what other lipstick shades that Sahi Cosmetics will launch!
Shade Reference: MAC NC42, Indian/Pakistani/Brown skin/tan skin
