Makeup Haul - November + December

Stocked up on old favorites and trying out some new ones as well.

I'm trying out makeup products from Makeup Revolution and Star's Cosmetics. I'm quite surprised with the Star's Cosmetics. Even though I bought these products on a whim, they are quite good. I will be reviewing them soon. Some of my personal favorites are eyeshadows from Makeup Revolution, bright pink/fuchsia matte lippie from Maybelline and yellow matte powder from Star's Cosmetics.

Faces Go Chic Lipstick - Black Cherry 414

 Today's review is about the Go Chic lipsticks from Faces. I got myself  'Black Cherry' and loving it. I purchased this last September and got around to blogging about it just now. This is my first product from Faces and decided to start with lipsticks as I just love them too much. I bought them during my Chennai visit when i went there for my delivery. I picked this one from Saravana Stores.....the one in T.Nagar. I'm dying to get my hands on the perfect red shade for me. I checked out the swatches before deciding to buy them. This is not an exact red shade that i was looking for but still love this shade. And my quest for my 'Perfect Red Lipstick' continues. 
There were at least 15 shades available with testers. I hate it when they have that 'Yellow' light( Donno what to call them). It totally offs the shade and gives and entirely different shade. This time I had the sense to check them out in normal light....as normal as a shop can have at least. I had to walk almost to the entrance of the shop to see the shades clearly and choose. 
The lipstick comes is a nice looking and a sturdy packaging. I like the cute lettering 'F' on top of the lipstick cap. This shade is a mix of Red and Berry which would work on most people.The pigmentation is really good. Just one swipe will give a decent coverage. Its not too creamy like slippery but delivers sufficient moisturization. It has a bit of matte-ish look on applying.It lasts about 3 hours at least. Considering the price I would say that is a decent time. I'm one of those people who would love to touch up. So this is no issue for me. When I smell these Lippies I can smell something but cant seem to put my finger on what it smells like. The smell doesn't bother me in anyway so gonna forget that.
What they claim!!!!:
Super stay, easy to apply Lipstick gives uniform coverage. Repair your lips against climatic changes. Get ready for rich, long lasting color in just one swipe. (Got the description from Urban Touch)
