Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick - Mat 6: Review & Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick

Hello Ladies, am super excited to try the Maybelline Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick, so got 3 shades in this line. Here’s the first one. The shade name is Mat 6. I really wish they would come up with a creative name instead of these boring numbers. However, the performance of this product compensates for the distasteful name. On with the review….  I have been using this lippy for almost 3-4 months now. I know it’s late. God!!, the amount of procrastination by me is ridiculous.

Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lip Gloss - #40 Captivating Coral : Review & Swatches.
I'm not a huge fan of lip glosses as I have pigmented lips and every other lp gloss i have encountered did give my lips proper coverage. It has been ages since I had bought one, so I decided to treat myself with one and was hoping to change my opinion of it.

Milani Color Perfect Lipsticks - Rose Hip: Review, Swatches & Dupes

 
I love Milani lipstick for their super pigmentation. This is a dream come true for all beauties with pigmented lips. I'm a huge fan of lipsticks and not lip gloss for this very reason. I'm in to bold colors at the moment as I just want to to have different and vibrant shades in my collection and I was missing bold colors. This shade 'Rose Hip' is almost (if possibly yes) a neon-ish shade. Continue reading "Milani Color Perfect Lipsticks - Rose Hip: Review, Swatches & Dupes"

This is a beautiful true Red from Milani's Color Statement Lipsticks. I am a huge fan of Red lips and love to get my hand on such shade of lippies. Since its True Red, it will suit any complexion. You just cant go wrong with this one.
The lipstick comes in a nice golden & shiny tube and looks really classy. The packaging is sturdy and come with a secure cap and is fancy looking as well. The lipstick has a melon-ey ,fruit-ish fragrance and i like it.
The texture is just a tad bit creamy but glides on like a dream. What i love about this lipstick besides the texture and the color, is the finish. It feels really light and comfortable to wear. It has this awesome vinyl sheen to it. It provides excellent coverage and is such a great option for pigmented lips and is very affordable too. It lasts about 4+ hours (I loose track of it after some time) and leaves behind a nice red tint on my lips.Here is a swatch of this shade on my hand and on my lips

Pros:
Affordable
Excellent coverage

Mini Haul!!! Lipsticks, Blushes and some more

 
 I kept this one a mini haul as i ordered only what i was missing. I have steadily started to incorporate blushes in to my looks and needed more shades. So got these. Like i have previously mentioned.....somewhere...not sure where, I invest in drug store cosmetics that are very affordable for obvious reasons. 
I have ordered Some blushes, couple of eye shadows, 3 shades of concealers, eye liner, lipsticks. Just covered the basics. I know I'm rambling and really hurrying through this post. I have to run off before my little monster wakes up. Will start to review them soon. 
Any requests to start off on anything particular??? Let me know.

Review: NYX Diamond Sparkle Lipgloss - Plum Sparkle

This is my first NYX lip product and my hubs got this for me. He is getting good at selecting suitable shades for me. He know more about what suits me and what doesn't. So when it comes to decision time I let him decide [lazy me :)].
I'm not a big fan of lipstick because of my first experience with them. My very first was from street wear and i completely hated it as it was sticky. By the time i got back home, i could find all sort of dust, grime and what not on my lips (yuck!!!). Now my hatred towards them has slightly lessened because of this one.
It costs about Rs600/- for 5ml..I would say that the Indian price is high considering that this is just a drug store makeup product in the US.  The ingredients are mentioned on the product, so this is plus for people who look deep in to the ingredients.
The packaging is solid looking and sturdy, above all its leak proof. Nobody likes it when liquid products leak out and get everywhere in the handbag right??!!! so this is definitely travel friendly. It comes with a doe foot applicator which is convenient for applying the lip gloss.
The lip gloss is almost free of fragrance. There is this mild fragrance that can be easily missed. So this is great for people with a sensitive nose. There is also flavor to this lip gloss and this is a huge relief to me. Most of the time i can put up with the annoying fragrance but not the yucky taste of it.
This lip gloss is not plum-ish like the shade name suggests. Its more of a Copperish brown tint. The lip gloss has loads of shimmer in it. The size of the shimmers is really really small and doesn't feel gritty on the lips.The shimmer does settle in to the fine lines if the lips are toooo pruney. The lip gloss applies smoothly and is slightly sticky to begin with and later on feels even less stickier.The lip gloss provides sheer to medium coverage. So ladies with really pigmented lips might not find this so useful. Otherwise, this lip gloss is great for everyday wear.
The lip gloss for 2 hours when not drinking or eating anything and leaves behind subtle sparkles. The lip gloss never claimed to last really long, so cant say this is a negative but will mention it anyway.
And an FYI: This lip gloss is endorsed by Wayne Goss, who is an awesome guy makeup artist. I have posted a video of his in this weeks 'Monday Makeup Video' series. You can check it out here.
The shimmer in the lip gloss is not over whelming so it can be worn during the day too. The gloss can also be used as a top coat on lipsticks as well. The lip gloss photographs really well and looks awesome too. It gives a wet shine like appearance and makes the lip look so sexy.
Pros:
Nice packaging
Convenient applicator.
Spill proof and travel friendly packaging.
Can be worn during the day as well.
Cons:
Slightly sticky.
Shade name is misleading.
Indian price is high.
Not suitable for pigmented lips.
Lasts about 2 hours.
Verdict:
There is nothing about this product that makes me unhappy. So a thumbs up for this lip gloss.
