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.

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.

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
Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick is a dream come true for a person on a budget and for those looking for bright and bold colors. It comes in this wide range of Corals, Pinks and Reds. It costs about $5 (on an average and at times even lower). There is like 30 shade choices, isn't that awesome??!!!
Pros:
Affordable
Excellent coverage
Lasts 4+ hours
Smells good
So many finishes and so many shades to choose from.
Paraben free
Cons:
 There is nothing i hate about this one 🙂
Verdict:
 This 1st purchase was just an experiment and now i'm dying to get my hands on all their shades. The effect of them on my lips is pretty intense and looks stunning. Considering the price, this one just outperforms so many other higher priced lipsticks

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.

LA Colors Moisture Lock Lipstick - Luscious Wine

  
What it claims:
Long lasting, Moisturize lips,Vitamin E & Aloe Vera.
Moisturize your lips with color. The unique contour tip perfects lip shape with a more precise application. These lipsticks are enriched with vitamin E and Aloe Vera.
Ingredients:
Not mentioned anywhere - In their website or on the product.
Price & Quantity: 3.2g for Rs300/-
My take on this:
 I got this as one of the gifts from my husband on our wedding anniversary. That was this December by the way. I have been meaning to do a review for such a long time but my baby has been keeping me busy.I have used up this lipstick so much that i really wanted to post the review before its completely gone.
To start off, I love the shade. Its a berry-ish shade. Its not a unique shade but i'm sure it will work for most complexions.The packaging is nothing great. In fact it looks cheap considering the price. It is designed in such a way that when new the top of the lipstick keeps sticking out. I hate this as one has to be extremely careful not to break or damage the lipstick.
On to the fragrance, it smells sweet. This is a huge minus for me as i hate anything that smells like a pastry. Since the fragrance is only too much in the casing and goes away on applying, it can be forgiven 🙂
The lipstick claims that it has moisture lock thingy in it. Well if it was there i haven't seen it yet. There is no phenomenal moisture lock capacity to this lipstick. Its normal. In fact, the first application was bit hard and dry. The other claim about it being 'long lasting' is also not completely true. It is pigmented and provides nice coverage but it lasts about 2 hours when not eating or drinking and leaves behind a bright pink stain which 'I' like.
The company talks about the tip of the lipstick as if its unique or specific to this lipstick. I find this really funny as its the standard shape just like any other. 
 Pros:
Provides nice coverage
Enriched with vit-E and Aloe Vera
Cons:
Cheap packaging
Annoying fragrance.
Not very moisturizing
Not long lasting.
Verdict:
There is nothing about it that pushes me to buy this again. Considering the price (in India) and the quantity it not a great buy.

Colorbar Velvete Matte lipstick - Hot Hot Hot: Review & Swatches

What it claims:

A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on upto 5 hours on application, the Velvet Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.
Price & Quantity: Rs 225/- for 4.2g
My take on this:
My hubs gifted me this on our 4th wedding anniversary and so in love with this shade. Like its already so obvious, i love dark shades and particularly different shades of red. Now on to the review. 
About the shade, this is a classic blue based red shade with  pink undertones. This shades suits the dusky indian skins so well that almost everyone can carry it off if they dare to falunt this shade. Since its a pretty bright shade its most suited for night wear. Saying this doesn't mean that it cant be worn during the day. This shade is for anyone who cares to be daring. I'm in love with shade and love pairing them up with neutral eyes. 
The packaging is pretty sturdy and comes with a see through cap and a shade previewer at the bottom- very convenient when looking for this shade. It gives a mildly annoying chocolate-y smell. This puts me off but since it lasts only for like ten seconds after applying, i'm okay with it. Unlike other mattes, this does not give a powdery matte finish. It has a creamy texture and glides when applying. The finish looks creamy too but doesn't have a glossy finish (duh!!! its matte)
The most awesome thing about this lipstick is the pigmentation, it provides maximum coverage. It is great for people with pigmented and scarred lips, as it covers them completely. The lipsticks last about 3 hours perfectly and then starts to fade gradually even if i don't eat or drink anything. Overall it lasts about 5 hours and then leaves a stain depending on the shade of lipstick. This lipstick leaves a cherry  red stain and looks decent. I like this as i don't want my lips to look bare and the stark contrast between wearing this shade of lipstick and bare lips are too great and I'm not loving it.
Like the company claims its does everything it says: Its gives a nice supple matte look. but it might be drying on some and prior moisturizing of the lips can takes care of this. There are mixed reviews saying that it enhances fine lines and some say nothing about it. I have observed that it does mildly settle in to the fine lines but not to the point that it looks prune-y.
Pros:
Affordable.
Easily available.
Decent range of shades.
Cons:
Mildly enhances fine lines on the lips.
Starts to fade after 3 hours.
Has mild annoying fragrance but dissipates quickly.
Verdict:
It is such an affordable alternative for those considering to venture in to the realm of Red lipsticks. Considering the price the quality is pretty good.
