Shades
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.

Review  
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
