Product Review: Sugar Liquid Lipstick – Brazen Raisin

I’m a sucker for liquid matte lipsticks and so I decided to buy a couple of shades of the Sugar Cosmetics Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick.

The Shade Brazen Raisin is a dark burgundy shade which compliments the Indian skin tone beautifully. It has an undertone of brown so don’t apply more than one coat.  Apply a single layer since it’s very well pigmented and dries up rather quickly. On drying up, it’s completely matte and not glossy at all. One thing to keep in mind is that Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks are extremely dry so moisturize and scrub your lips well before you wear the lipstick on.  It comes in a travel friendly box packaging. The lipstick comes in a clear bottle with an applicator attached to the cap. The lasting power is great, infact I found it a little hard to take it off. So eat, drink and be least bothered about a touch up! With a great pricing, we would definitely recommend this one.

Product Review: Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick – Icon

My current favourite work wear lip shade is the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick – Icon. A lovely Pinkish Nude, I got this one from Dubai and the brand is available at most of the Sephora outlets in Dubai.

The shade “Icon,” is described as a classic peachy pink and when you apply it, it does look more peachy. However, on drying up, it darkens and looks more nude and very attractive. It’s perfect for the Indian skin tone. Extremely well pigmented and just one swipe is enough for the shade to stay on. For a gloss, it stays relatively long say about 4-6 hours. The packaging is great too, quite appealing. The gloss bottle is packed in a cardboard container (check picture). A little steep on the pricing, we would totally recommend this if you’re checking out the best matte lip colours out there.

Maybelline launched its first 12 in one eye shadow palette – The Nudes and it has got really popular in no time!

 

12 different shades of nude, both shimmery and matte and arranged in quads, trios and duos to make it easier for you to blend them together, this one is a steal! The shades are soft and well pigmented, especially the shimmer ones, also best suited for the Indian skin type.

Product Review: Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick

Lakme has launched a range of shades in their new long lasting 9 to 5 range.  We got our hands on the MR6 Vermillion Fired Shade.  Here’s what we thought of it.

lakme 9 to 5 lipstickA bright shade of orange, this one is vibrant and ideal for day wear. Lakme primarily launched this segment of lipsticks for the office goers so that the color lasts through the day. What we loved about the lipstick was the Matte texture and the superb metallic packaging.  When swatched on the arm, the shade is smooth and creamy but it can get patchy on the lips and needs multiple coats. The lipstick does last for about 4-5 hours, definitely less than they claim but it makes for a great option for everyone who loves neon shades.
