Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick in 129

Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick in 129

This is going to be a quick review of  a lipstick that was supposed to go up about three months ago! You all probably recognize the Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick. I just think Lakme lipsticks are so engraved in memory because all the moms and aunts used to have them. I remember the green packaging from the 90's. Anyway, I digress. These lipsticks are possibly the most affordable at the moment and their creamy formula is actually really good. Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick in 129 is a really great nude shade for Indian skintones.…Read more
October 2014 Favourites

October 2014 Favourites

Time for the monthly favourites. I've had such a crazy Monday, I just want to talk about makeup! A  bunch of things I've been using for the last 2-3 months and some are more recent favourites. So here goes!   01. Lorac Pro Palette :: So I finally got this a few months back and it's pretty much replaced my UD Naked palette. I love the colours! I've used it for subtle everyday looks, night outs with smokey eyes and shimmery looks. Also used it on Diwali and I have a few weddings…Read more
Guide to Berry Lips

Guide to Berry Lips

If you are uncomfortable around an excessive amount of lipsticks, please retreat! This post is only for the brave! I'm hoping, that this post will help you pick out or discover colours you'd like for your fall/autumn/winter looks. Now I don't strictly follow seasonal trends but overall, I thought this post would be helpful to discover berry toned lipsticks (and other lip products). We're gonna work in three parts here.   Part One : Just Give Me Lipsticks To Look At Umm... ok. Here you go.     Part Two : I Don't…Read more
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Plumrose

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Plumrose

It's hill station weather in Pune for the past few days and I'm perfectly content with bringing out my sweaters and scarves. Hope it stays the same for months to come! I had done a Just Swatches post with my Milani Colorstatement lipsticks and this one really stood out. Milani Colorstatement Lipsticks come in a variety of colours and finishes. Plumrose is deep pink in a creme finish. I feel it's a very safe colour that would be appropriate for any occasion. Despite the name "plum" I actually think it's a warm colour and…Read more
Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease

I'm feeling particularly lethargic this weekend. I'm hoping some more Diwali food is going to cure that! Meanwhile, here's something from my lipstick stash, Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate lip crayons. The fact that I feel like I'm applying markers to myself is enough to make me giddy. Tease from the Lacquer Balm range is a burnt orange kind of shade with zero shimmer. The orange is a bit deeper which, I feel,  makes it easier to wear. I have comparison swatches below but as you can…Read more
Just Swatches : Revlon Lip Butters

Just Swatches : Revlon Lip Butters

Welcome to the swatchfest! I think Revlon Lip Butters are the bomb and still very affordable now at Rs. 600, as 800 is almost the norm for new lipsticks now. They're sheer, very thin in consistency, lightweight on the lips and very very glossy. Of course, not the most longlasting but these are sheer. not going to say more here since you can read the individual reviews if you are interested in a particular shade. My favourites are Pink Truffle, Raspberry Pie and Juicy Papaya! I think Cotton Candy was a very unnecessary purchase…Read more
Burberry ‘Lip Cover’ Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose

Burberry ‘Lip Cover’ Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose

Let's talk lipstick. One of my most prized possessions is this Burberry lipstick which is perfect to the T. Burberry 'Lip Cover' Soft Satin Lipstick in Dusty Rose is from Burberry's range of creamy hydrating lipsticks. Whilst they are similar to your Chanel, YSL in price range, they aren't too mainstream. I think particularly when it comes to neutral shades Burberry has a really great collection for all skintones. Dusty Rose is my kind MLBB, it's a warm medium rose pink. Similar to Mac Cosmo, Mac Fast Play and even Chanel Mademoiselle but…Read more
Mac ‘The Simpsons’ Lipglass in Red Blazer

Mac ‘The Simpsons’ Lipglass in Red Blazer

So excited for this post!! As you might have guessed, I picked up a little something from the limited edition Mac x The Simpsons collection! The minute I heard about the collection a few months ago, I knew I had to get it. When the collection actually came out, I was disappointed with the range. No lipsticks, just 4 glosses, 2 blushes, 2 eyeshadows and nail stickers. I was hoping it would be massive and diverse. Anyway, my initial greed had me adding 2 lipglosses, a blush and an eyeshadow palette to the…Read more
Illamasqua Lipstick in Atomic

Illamasqua Lipstick in Atomic

I had always wanted to try Illamasqua lipsticks and Atomic was one shade that I was always attracted to. Illamasqua Atomic is a bright warm pink but with a frosty purple sheen. It's described as a fuchsia violet which is quite accurate but it's on the warmer side. I'd say it's one of the few frosty lipsticks in my collection. But I don't think it looks tacky like the very pearlescent frosty ones. The sheen is purple or pink depending on the lighting and it looks amazing, there's also some shimmer in there.…Read more
L’oreal Moist Matte Lipstick in Maple Mocha

L’oreal Moist Matte Lipstick in Maple Mocha

Hey guys! Hope the weekend is going well! ^_^ If you don't know already, I'm a huge fan of the L'oreal Moist Matte lipsticks. I've previously reviewed the shades Lincoln Rose and Glamour Fuchsia, time to review one of the few neutral shades in the range. L’oreal Moist Matte Lipstick in Maple Mocha is a straight up brown. I feel like it's a perfect terracotta kind of colour, it's that burnt orange kind of brown. I initially thought it would be a lot like Mac Mocha, but Mocha has a bit of pink…Read more
