Product Review: Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour

I have been a fan of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams for a while now. When I say a fan, it basically means that I have been hoarding them and have a lot of them. Some of them I am on my second tube and some I have scooped so deeply, I am afraid my applicator will come out of the other side. You know the other side- the one where Adele is. That was a terrible joke. So, anyway, Lakme introduced a new line of matte mousse lip and cheek colours and it’s very, very, in fact suspiciously similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I am not going to justify my saying it’s suspicious and just leave it there for you to think over and wonder. Leave it, it’s nothing. So I bought a two shades from the Lakme range- Coffee Lite and Tangerine Fluff- and here’s my review. Lakme 9 t 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour Feel: It comes in a tube that gives up nothing. So if …

Product Review:Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Dream Pink

Yes, I must be lazy. This is my first post of 2016! I feel like I have been ignoring my blog and that’s not a good feeling. Anyway, I am back. With reviews and well, some more reviews. My year started on a good note and I hope yours did too. A few months ago, a friend of mine (we should really become best friends after a gift like this) gifted me an Estee Lauder Gift Pack which had two nail shades and one lipstick. Now, I obviously swooned over owning an Estee Lauder product that I hadn’t paid for. Yes, I am easily excited like that. And that’s how I have this lipstick. I’ll admit, I didn’t get around to trying this early on because I had few trusty lip shades that look just so good on me that experimenting is just that, an experiment. I did get around to trying this one though, and here’s how it fared. Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Dream Pink Feel: These guys have been making makeup gurus …

Product Review:L’Oreal Paris Color Riche in Opera Amaranth

I haven’t been a big fan of lipsticks till I discovered the power of a red lipstick. Now, I have my favourites- the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul and Antwerp that I wear on a daily basis. I bought this L’Oreal lip colour only because I was going to a wedding and I wanted a pink that popped. I actually didn’t really want it, I got tempted when I went to the makeup counter. Anyhoo, I ended up buying this one. Here’s the review. Feel: The lipstick is goes on real smooth and does not dry out the lips (and my lips are pretty dry) which I really like. So I have this funny problem, if a lip colour/stain/stick is very oily and intense, I tend to sweat more on my upper lip? Is that weird? Anyway, this one goes on pretty well. Fragrance: It smells like berries with an after smell of makeup. Price: Rs.950 for a tube Shade: Opera Amaranth. See swatch below. Verdict: I like the product per se, I …
