Red lipsticks have always been a talk in beauty world.  There are so many red lipsticks out there for every skin tone. Red is a color which can look flattering on every skin tone.  My favorite red lipstick is from Lakme 9 to 5 range in the shade RED COAT.  I have been having this lipstick for quite long now and recently I discovered I never reviewed for my beauties. So here is my opinion on this lipstick,

My Review:

The shade RED COAT is beautiful and classic true red with no pink or orange undertones. It’s a bright red with matte finish. The texture of this lipstick is creamy and glides on very easily. It stays good on my lips for 6-7 hours without touch-ups. It might fade tad bit after having a meal but touch up can be easy with this lipstick. It doesn’t settle in lines and doesn’t flake out throughout the day. It feels super soft and buttery without making it look dry and still looks matte. It’s rich and opaque too.

Talking about packaging, it comes in a beautiful and luxurious metallic rose gold packaging. The lid is quite tight and it travel friendly. Love the packaging.

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks have been out for quite a while now but recently only I got this one in the shade SOFTSPOKEN while I was on a search for Kat Von D Lolita Dupe and you guys this is so much similar to KVD Lolita. I instantly fell in love with this liquid lipstick and this shade is gorgeous and to die for.

The formulation of this lipstick is very creamy and buttery.  Application is so easy and glides on very smoothly. They don’t completely dry matte but more like a velvety satin matte finish if you guys understand what I mean 🙂 It’s highly pigmented and not drying on lips at all. A little transferable  and  it takes a while to completely dry but doesn’t leave your lips patchy. The color is still leaves an even stain on your lips. It stayed good for 6+ hours with eating and drinking and no touch ups.  It was so comfortable to wear and I dint feel like I was wearing a liquid lipstick. It has a weird smell but goes away within seconds.

If you are into liquid lipsticks but don’t love the complete matte and unduly drying feel on your lips, the NYX Liquid Suedes are definitely worth trying.  This liquid lipstick would be great for beginners to want to try liquid lipstick.

Talking about packaging, it is very simple and quite similar to Soft Matte Lip Creams, but bigger. The top lid is black and the tube itself has the color of the actual lipstick so it’s easy to pick and it comes with a doe foot applicator.

It’s a nice warmer mauve brown tone shade and I am so in love with this lipstick and the color. The best part is NYX products are  cruelty free. I would highly recommend this to everyone and this shade I believe will suit all skin tone. f you don’t want to spend 20 bucks on Lolita or can’t get your hands on it, I would highly recommend picking up NYX ‘Soft Spoken’. It is just as pretty and much more comfortable!

Pros:

  • Creamy &Smooth
  • Matte
  • Highly pigmented
  • Very Comfortable on the lips
  • Leaves a stain
  • Long lasting 5+ hours
  • Cruelty Free

Cons:   None

Price: $7 at NYX Cosmetics Website

Rating: 5/5

Do I recommend these? Yes! Definitely worth trying. For only $7, it can’t get any better than this.

I really hope you enjoyed today’s post. Have a great week!!

 

Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick

.I  think I’m officially addicted to liquid lipsticks and have shunned other forms of lipstick, for now at least. Recently I got Ofra Cosmtics long lasting liquid lipstick in the shade MINA. It’s a gorgeous dark deep plum with purple-berry undertones which is appealing to all skin tones.

If you love long lasting, dry matte finish and also which gives good color pay off then you will definitely love this liquid lipstick.

Product Description:
One step full lip color that does not feather. These vibrant colors will give you a vivacious look.They are creamy and soft in texture, moisturizing the lips and creating a long lasting lipstick effect. All shades contain antioxidants and Vitamin E while the formula provides a lightweight layer of lasting color to make you feel fresh all day. Color will last in a perfect condition up to five hours without eating or drinking.

Packaging:

The packaging of this liquid lipstick is nothing special. It comes in a plastic transparent tube and a plastic black lid. The applicator is doe foot shaped so it gets easy to apply.The packaging looks cheap for the price.

File_002 (1)

My Verdict:

This liquid lipstick is fully matte and I have been obsessed with matte lipsticks lately. The consistency is so creamy and mousse kind of a consistency and glides like a butter. It do lasts for long time so because of that it can feel a tad bit drying after couple of hours so I would recommend wearing a thin layer of lip balm before applying this lipstick. It does not give matte look as soon as you apply so you do need to let the color set for about a minute and then its perfect matte! This lipstick can be layered for darker intense look.

The staying power of this liquid lipstick is really good. It lasts up to good 6-8 hours. If you using matte liquid lipstick, I highly recommend you to exfoliate your lips (click here for DIY lip scrub) or apply a lip balm underneath. It gives amazing results. If applied without prepping your lips it might be too drying and may settle in dry flaky cracks and lines. The best thing about this product is it’s cruelty free.

Cons:

  • Very expensive

Maybelline Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick-Craving Coral

A good lipstick can totally change your look and I am totally in love with matte lipsticks these days. Maybelline Creamy Matte lipsticks are one of them.I picked in the shade Craving coral which is a gorgeous red orange shade and is great for summer. Anyone who loves bright colors will definitely love this shade.

Packaging:

The packaging is simple and very much travel friendly. The outer plastic comes in a dark grey matte look like plastic and the sticker on the bottom shows the shade name and shade number. The lid is super tight that you can just throw in your bag and you are good to go.

Pigmentation:

Talking about pigmentation it’s an amazing gorgeous dark shade and gives a opaque finish with one swipe. You can built it up to intensify and make it look even more darker.

My Verdict:

As the name implies it’s not traditional matte lipstick, but more of a creamy matte. This formula is creamy and glides easily on the lips. It’s not drying like other matte lipsticks. I just love the way it feels when applied. It doesn’t not settle in your lip lines and doesn’t flake out throughout the day. It feels super soft and butter which glides so easily and helps in keeping your lips moisturized without making it look dry and still looks matte. Voila!!

It’s a long lasting lipstick and it stayed good for 5+ hours. The Creamy Matte finish makes this lipstick it more wearable. I am so in love with this lipstick and texture and will definitely purchase other shades too.

It’s a perfect dupe for MAC Viva GLAM Miley Cyrus 2.

Wet N Wild Lipstick Bare It All

The old adage is true, you never know unless you try. This goes for this lipstick! I was very hesitant to get this shade as I thought this pure nude beige like shade would not suit my brown skin but then it was so inexpensive that I ended up getting this shade.

My Reviews:

It’s a matte lipstick and the formula is thick and creamy. It is a perfect neutral beige-not too light or dark. It has enough color to not make like that I wore concealer on my lips or look muddy. The lipstick glides smoothly after I prep my lips (either exfoliate or apply some lip balm). If applied with the balm the lipstick looks like a satin matte finish.  The setback of this lipstick is that if I apply without prepping my lips it’s too dry to work and does not glide smoothly.  I have read that different colors in the Megalast collection feel different. Some are more chalky, but not this one. Color pay-off is good. It will cover your lips in one swipe only but it will give you an  uneven look to the lips so you need apply one more coat to smooth it out .Staying power is ok. Without meal, it stayed up to its claim of 4 hours. With meal, it starts fading in center but slightly visible.

Also, this color is dupe for MAC’s Velvet Teddy.  ! I didn’t believe the hype for this shade until I tried it. This lip color ca be paired with strong eye look or full glam look or with just a simple natural no makeup- makeup look.

The packaging is nothing special. It comes in a black color case with transparent cap for color to show through. Cap is very loose and flimsy but who can complain at this price.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Matte finish
  • Doesn’t leave a stain on lips
  • Good pigmentation

Cons:

  • Flimsy packaging
  • Can’t be put on dry lips
