Whenever brands claim things like long-lasting, 24 hour staying power and such I always take it with a grain of salt due to the many years of unmet expectations and OTT claims that hold no good but this time Maybelline surprised me with the Superstay 24 Hour 2 Step Lipstick. I was able to try the shade 115 Forever Chestnut.
Chubby Sticks are so popular lately, literally every colour cosmetic can be found in a chubby stick format. There is something so satisfying about holding a fat crayon and going to town; I guess it brings out the child in us. Lakme was on trend when they launched these Lip Pout Crayons and I was able to try the shade Mauve Hue.
This one is from Maybellines’s permanent range named Colour Sensational Moisture Extreme. I was on the look out for a Bright Pink shade to match my Fuchsia Saree. When I came across this shade called Coral Pink (CB41) in the Yellow bright light at the mall; I thought this was it! But of course like many lipsticks it wears differently in daylight.
I have always been a fan of Inglot’s brand language and of course great quality of products to go with that “sleek & to the point” brand image. During the time I lived in Bangalore I hoarded a tonne of lipsticks from Inglot because they had many physical stores there and I really do like the old school way of swatching and making a purchase decision based on how I perceive the product in reality rather than seeing it on the computer or phone screen. During this phase I was all about the pinks and one fitting the bill was this beautiful No. 145.
I had heard tonnes about Wet n Wild’s affordable range of products from the international beauty community and was pretty thrilled when Nykaa.com officially made it available in India. I saw a YouTube video by Tshering of Titi’s Corner swatching the Magalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks and fell in love with Rebel Rose a beautiful dusty pink colour.
When Makeup Revolution officially launched in India around a year ago, I was eager to checkout their offerings since they are known for their affordable prices and shades that are dupes for many high-end colour cosmetic brands. I was in the market for a Nude Lipstick (let’s be real, when am I not! LOL) so I went for the shade Treat from their Amazing Lipstick Range.
