I am obsessed with Lakme Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer Ruby Glimmer, it is perfect for Parties, Festivities and Weddings. My regular readers might know that I am a HUGE MATTE LIPSTICK LOVER, however I am really finding myself inclined towards this beautiful Lip Shimmer and am definitely going to try other shades from this range.

First thing first, these Lip Shimmers come in very Sleek and Sophisticated black packaging, full marks to Lakme for that. Lakme has taken a huge risk in bringing back the 90s Era where Chunky and Shimmery Lip colors were very Popular, so this Range might not be everyone’s cup of Tea. Even when I bought Ruby Glimmer I was very sceptical. However when I tried it, all my hesitations were put to rest. I know …I know I am raving about this lipstick.. its better that I won’t take much of your time and quickly sum up the Pros and Cons for you.

Pros:

  1. Sleek and Sophisticated Packaging.
  2. Perfect color for Parties, Weddings.
  3. Pinkish Red color gives beautiful glow to the face.
  4. Smooth and Creamy Texture.
  5. Very Pigmented.
  6. Subtle shimmer, not at all Chunky.
  7. Long Wearing- I had a wear time of 6-7 hours.
  8. It does not make the lips dry.

Cons:

  1. People with sensitive nose may found the scent bothersome.
  2. Concept of Shimmery Illuminating particles in the Lipstick may not go well with everyone.
  3. Not for Matte Lovers.

Rating: 4.5/5

Hello My Beauties!! How are you all? Its been many days since my last Post on Blog, I was on Vacation with my Family and was super busy. It was a much needed recreation from the same old boring Office Job Routine… Sigh…

I took a full week off and I am totally loving the time and attention of my loved ones. So.. coming to this Post, I bought this Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Shade Moss 004 last month and was testing it. I wore it to the Hot and Humid weather of Goa and trust me it is a super duper product. I use it as an eyeliner and eyeshadow both.

My Review

The first thing that caught my eye was the Super gorgeous color, I love all kind of blue eyeliners and eyeshadows so the moment I saw it I knew I have to have it. Moreover Eyeshadow Sticks have made my life super easy, they are so easy to use and the best part is you can use them as eyeliner as well 🙂

The texture of Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Shade Moss 004 is super creamy, it glides smoothly on the lids and then you can blend it with finger or a brush. It sets pretty quickly so you have to be very quick to blend it nicely.

The application at first was uneven and I have to apply it second time to cover the unevenness wherever needed. It is a very long lasting eyeshadow and does not budge once it is Set.  It doesn’t transfer to the socket line so that is a relief for people with Hooded eyes.

Pros:

  1. User Friendly Packaging.
  2. Beautiful Turquoise shade with overpowering hint of Blue.
  3. Eyeshadow twist-up Stick, very easy to use for Beginners.
  4. Soft and Smooth Texture.
  5. No Smudging.
  6. Does not transfer to the Socket Line.
  7. Long Lasting Eyeshadow, I had a wear time of around 7 Hours.

Cons:

  1. Uneven Application at first, need to layer it second time to get the even finish.
  2. Sets very quickly and leave a very little time for blending, may be an application issue for few people.
  3. Expensive, there are other Eyeshadow Crayons/Sticks available in Market with same features at less price. E.g. Faces Eyeshadow Crayons

Faces Ultime Pro Eyeshadow Crayon: Uptown Girl 04: Review and Swatches

Lakme Absolute Drama Stylist Eye Shadow Crayon: Bronze Review and Swatches
