Maybelline Colorshow Creamy Matte Lipcolor- Bold Crimson, Madly Magenta: Review

MRP: Rs. 325

Maybelline has recently launched 12 matte, moisture rich shades and today I am going to review two of the shades i.e. Bold Crimson, Madly Magenta.

Packaging: The lipsticks come in black matte case with color coded strip for easy color recognition.

Color: 

Bold Crimson: Bold Crimson is a dark red shade which would perfectly suit Indian Skin tone.

Madly Magenta: Madly Magenta is a blend of Magenta and light pink shade. This would suit medium to light skin beauties.

Fragrance: Mostly I am not bothered by scent of the lipstick, however in this case I found the scent too loud and strong. It vanishes soon but I found it bothersome.

Texture/formula: As these are creamy matte lipsticks so texture is creamy and smooth. Both of these shades do not highlight the dry and flaky lips. The formula is good as it keeps the lips moisturised during the wear time.

Pigmentation: Maybelline Bold Crimson and Madly Magenta both are very pigmented. You just need 2 swipes to build the color uniformly.

Longevity: Well, that is one big problem area. Both of these lipsticks have average staying power. They stayed on me for 2-3 hours and does not survive full meal. Without any meal or snacks in between, I had a wear time of 4-5 hours.

My Rating: 3.5/5

Verdict: Well, I have mixed feelings about these two. Both of the colors are ordinary and you can find the same in other brands as well. Wear time is a downside and so is the scent. But these can be considered as good creamy matte options in low Budget.

In my earlier post I have posted the swatches of New Maybelline Superstay Megawatt 14Hr Lipstick and today I am going to review the shade Flash of Fuchsia which is a very beautiful and vibrant Fuchsia color.

Packaging: The packaging of the Lipstick is simple and sturdy with white plastic cap and color coded base. The color coded base will help in easy recognition if you have more than one Maybelline Superstay Megawatt 14Hr Lipsticks.

Color: The color of the Maybelline Superstay Megawatt 14Hr Lipstick Flash of Fuchsia is its main forte. This Fuchsia color gives a very warm glow to the face and you do not need much to do with rest of the face makeup.

Texture/Formula: The texture of Flash of Fuchsia is very creamy and does not highlight the dry and chapped lips. Formula is also noteworthy as it keeps the lips soft and moisturised which is a big plus for me as I have dry lips.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is okay, you need 3-4 swipes to build the uniform color.

Longevity: I wore it to the office and had a wear time of 7-8 hours which is good enough considering the price at which we are getting this awesome lipstick.

Rating: 5/5

My Verdict: I can not rave enough about Maybelline Superstay Megawatt 14Hr Lipstick Flash of Fuchsia, I loved it totally and would recommend it to you ladies to try this shade specially.

Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018-review

If you like Glossy lips but wants a good color coverage as well then the Colorbar Lip Pots are ideal for you. Today I am going to review Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018 which is a very beautiful Gloss Red Shade, the best thing about lipsticks that come in pots are that you can always control the intensity of the color while applying or you can always mix two colors to customize a Shade for you.

Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018-swatch

Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018 needs to be applied with a Lip Brush, the texture of the Lipstick is very smooth and glossy which makes the application very Easy.

The Formula of Colorbar Lip Pot Temptress 018 is very spot on, it does not highlights the fine lines and dry/flaky lips. Also, the formula keeps the lips moisturised and nourished.

Being this a Glossy Pigmented lipstick I had a wear time of 2-3 hours. The Downside is that it bleeds and transfers 🙁

Rating: 3/5

Pigmentation: Pigmentation of these colors is nice, obviously light colors have less pigmentation but they are okay if used as Highlighter. Third and Fourth shade are my favorite.

Application: All the shades are very pigmentation and blendable which makes the application super Easy.

Wear time: I have oily lids so I always Prime them before putting any eye shadow. With Primer underneath I had a wear time of 5-6 hours after which I have experienced was creasing and minimal fading.

Rating: 3.5/5

My Verdict: This eye shadow Quad offers Shimmer as well as a beautiful Matte color, the colors are very blendable and gives a very beautiful finish. It stays for a good amount of time. However the first two colors are almost the same, but I loved the last two. Matte Plum shade is perfect for Smokey eyes.

How to Use?
Apply to a cleansed and toned face and neck before bed, to work overnight while you sleep.

My Experience:
I have been using The body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion for almost 2 months now and finished this tiny bottle. Those who regularly follows my Blog may know that I have very acne prone skin and have acne and pimple marks at the side of the cheeks, below ears. This product has lightened the marks up to some extent but not completely, it also controls the oils and gives a matte finish. It has reduced the occurrence of Acne’s as well and my skin feels relaxed, fresh and more clearer.

It is Pricey but then it contains Tea Tree Oil and all ingredients(list mentioned above) are Organic so I have a feeling of Satisfaction that nothing harmful is seeping into my Skin when I sleeps. At this point I will continue using this product to see how it impacts my Skin in near future. I Recommend it!!

Rating: 4/5.

I know many of the beauties out there are fighting with the Acne and Pimples, I too had shared the same Journey and tried many products. The Body Shop products (Face Wash and this Lotion) has helped me a lot. In case you have any queries I will be glad to answer them.

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Lip Tint- Magenta Magic, Raving Red: Review and Swatches

MRP: Rs. 650 (Oh, it is such a relief to have a good matte range at such an affordable price)

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Lip Tint- Magenta Magic-Raving Red bullets

Today I am going to review two shades from Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Lip Tint Range. At the starting of last week I just picked Magenta Magic and it impressed me so much that I had to have one more shade from this range. So I picked a very beautiful warm red shade called Raving Red.

You can buy this range online at Nykaa, Jabong and Flipkart.

Lakme Absolute Lip Tint Matte Review:

Packaging: As I said in my preview post, the twist up Crayon packaging is same as that of Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm( Revlon Colorburst Matte balm SultryRevlon Colorburst Matte balm Striking) the only difference is that these crayons have silver cap. I found packaging very colorful and funky, totally loved it. Twist up Crayons are so easy to use and maintenance free, no need of sharpener and all.

Color:
Magenta Magic: Lakme Absolute Magenta Magic Lip tint Matte is a very beautiful Magenta shade.

Raving Red: Lakme Absolute Raving Red Lip tint Matte is a warm muted red, I fell in love with this color instantly. This will go very well with the ladies who do not prefer very Bold Reds.

Texture/Formula: The texture is dry so don’t forget to moisturise your lips before application. Like all matte lipsticks these shades also highlights dry and flaky lips.

Pigmentation:
Magenta Magic: Lakme Absolute Magenta Magic Lip tint Matte is nicely pigmented, you need 2 swipes to cover the lips fully. Color intensity can be controlled, which is a good thing for the beauties who don’t like to wear dark colors.

Raving Red: Lakme Absolute Raving Red Lip tint Matte has average color payoff, you need multiple swipes to build the color.

Longevity: Both the shades have long wear time of 7-8 hours (I had meals and snacks in between). I wore both of the shades to office and by the end of the day they were intact with small fading around the corner of the lips.

Staining: Nah!! they do not stain the lips at all.

Rating: 4.5/5

My Verdict: Lakme has nailed it <3 This Matte Range has beautiful, wearable colors. Yes, they are dry but that can be stored out by applying a good lip balm underneath. Do try atleast one shade from this Matte Range. My personal favorite is Magenta Magic.

MRP: Rs. 650

LAKME ABSOLUTE LIP POUT packaging

LAKME ABSOLUTE LIP POUT Magenta Magic-packaging

I was waiting for the LAKME ABSOLUTE LIP POUTs  ever since I have seen Kareena Kapoor rocking the two beautiful shades from the same range in Promotional Posters and advertisements. I had an idea that these will be released during the Lakme Fashion Week and like a happy child I was bursting with the excitement and thought of having them.  I mean how beautiful are all the colors. From the overview these Lip Pouts seems to have the features similar to Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms and I have mixed experience with them. If you are a regular reader, you may know how much I loved Revlon Colorburst Matte balm Sultry  and how much I disliked Revlon Colorburst Matte balm Striking

So to be on Safer side I just bought a single Shade called LAKME ABSOLUTE LIP POUT Magenta Magic. It is a beautiful dark Magenta Shade which looks light in hand swatches but is darker when swiped on lips. I will be posting the detailed review in a day or two after thoroughly reviewing , but I must say SO FAR SO GOOD 🙂

Till then Enjoy the Swatches and pics ladies!!
