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: Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen

Colorbar’s Radiant Glow Illuminator Pen is a compact, easy to carry highlighter which is a great product to give you a natural shine and to enhance your make up as well as the high points of your face.

Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen resembles your regular ball pen with a push button at the back.  A soft bristle releases the highlighter when tapped on the skin and when pressed from the back. You can use it to apply the product directly on the face.

It is a cream based highlighter and it’s easy to apply since it’s smooth and rich. The best part about the product is that it’s not too glittery and can be used on all skin types. Ensure to clean the bristle with a soft tissue after every use or the product will accumulate and make the brush hard.

Overall, it is a great product, especially since it looks natural on applying and extremely travel friendly.

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.

Product Review: Maybelline New York the Colossal Liner – Black

Maybelline has some of the finest cosmetics and their kajal and liner are the best you can get in the market at affordable rates.

The Maybelline New York Colossal Liner comes in a pen like sleek packaging and is quite sturdy to carry around without worrying about the cap opening while you keep it in your bag.

On applying, you will realize that the flexi tip makes it easy to apply, whether you want a thin line or a winged eye look. One of the best jet black liners in the market, this one easily stays for 8-10 hours without fading or getting smudged. But the best part about this product is that it dries really quick, so for all you ladies who are impatient and can’t keep your eyes shut for too long after applying your liner, this one is for  you.

Product Review: Colorbar Velvet Matte (Shade: 58BR Bare)

colorbar velvet matte lipstick bareThe Colorbar Velvett Matte Range is available in 45 different shades. With the aim of providing a 2 in 1 finish, i.e. matt and creamy, Colorbar has some beautiful shades under this range. If you’re looking for the perfect nude shade, go buy yourself the Velvett Matt Bare.

for blogApt for the Indian skin tone, this one is smooth and creamy when swatched on the arm as well as on the lips. It’s adequately opaque and one coat would be enough to cover all the pigmentation. The colour is a beautiful pinkish nude and looks extremely natural. The lipstick claims to last for 5 hours and on actual application would easily last for 3-4 hours. Although the lipstick is not very moisturizing, it’s doesn’t make your lips very dry either unlike other matte lipsticks.

Overall, this one is a great buy for daily use, natural, formal and very creamy.
