Kryolan Professional lipstick: LIP ROUGE PEARL LCP 626 - Review,Lip Swatch

**Guest post by Gunjan Taneja

Hello everyone,
Hope you all are doing well. Here, I am going to review my first lipstick from Kryolan Professional. The shade code LCP 626 from the Kryolan’s Pearl collection. It would become easy to remember if they start giving names to their lipsticks shades.

Ombre Lips ft Maybelline Colorsensational Rebel Bouquet Lipsticks

I have seen these sometime in last year and their reviews were great on many of the beauty blogs from foreign countries. They had launched 10 shades abroad and most of them were pastels. May be the brand might have guessed that these can never really be liked by Indian women, launched only 6 shades here this year. The range I am talking about is the Maybelline Colorsensational Rebel Bouquet Collection. These as the name say are packed in a very gorgeous outer cover and the colours are gorgeous too. The collection has very vibrant colours ranging from pinks,corals,peaches etc.
The shade which I have here are REB02 and REB05.

Oriflame The One : 5-In-1 Colour Stylist Lipsticks - Swatches, Review

Probably I am the last one to join the bandwagon and I apologize for the same. I am juggling with lot of other works and am totally rocking it. So coming to the post, I have four very good looking Oriflame 5 in 1 lipsticks. The shades which I have here are Beige Collection,Mysterious Pink, Garnet Attraction and London Red.
The lipsticks look like their recently launched lipsticks from The One collection.
449 INR
but I am sure you get them for a cheaper price online or you can simply wait for an offer in their monthly catalog.

L'oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Limited Edition Swarovski Lipstick-Review,swatches,On My Lips

Adding a luxurious touch to the fabulous color payoff is the jewel plug on the packaging that matches the individual color shades.
The lipstick has an iconic new bullet that has a tear drop point for precise glide.
The beautiful side curve follows the natural curvature of the lips perfectly and delivers the truest color payoff.
Price and Quantity:
INR 1099
The Package:
To start off, the lipstick comes in a way too luxurious package. Rose Gold container with the real swarovski adding to elegance the lipstick is such a beauty and it adds that extra dimension to my lipstick collection. The lipstick tube comes in a velvet case and that's something I have never seen before. I adore this lipstick first for it's package.
My Take:
I fell in love with the package! It screams attention and it can not escape without getting noticed even when you keep this in a set of other lipsticks. Let's not talk about the outer thing and let's get in with the real outcome of this Limited Edition Color Riche Moist Matte Lipsticks..
This particular shade is Arabian Nights which is a vampy burgundy shade looks more like MAC Diva. But still wearable. It is a deep berry purple shade which is totally an unique shade to pull off. However, my camera couldn't capture the exact shade, so please feel free to check my instagram account for a proper lip swatch.
The lipstick in the bullet and the shade when swatched is not at all same. In the bullet, it looks more like a burgundy red but in reality it's much more than that.
The Moist Matte formula is just so great. I love matte lips and at times, I try to avoid them as they tend to dry out my already dry lips. But the moist matte lipstick is just so perfect. It never let your lips become dry.
Coming to the Arabian Nights, unlike the other moist matte lipsticks, when swatched, it doesn't give a neat opaque finish at one go. It spreads unevenly and you may want to swipe twice/thrice to get the clean finish.
Once set, the lipstick stays on for 4hours on my lips and it survives snacks and coffee. Later it leaves a berry tint behind. I like to apply a lipbalm over the tint and thus I can sport a glossy pout.
On me..
Final Words:
The only con is the price! Else this is one unique shade you want to add to your collection. This is out of stock every where so grab before it is gone.

Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Crème in Deep Rose and Deep Earth-Review,Lip Swatches

To start off, you know how much I love the Matte lipsticks. I kind of get carried away by the name "matte" When Colorbar launched their very own matte lipsticks, I couldn't resist but picking these beauties up.
So what does the company claim about these:
An ultra-silky, virtually "weightless" texture that unveils unexpected moussy finish with impeccable high pigmentation color for high coverage effect.
These innovative combinations of ingredients give the formula special gliding consistency to coat lips with deep colors that have a matte, yet intensely bright effect.
Features and benefits:
Stays up to  8hrs
Weightless Emollient oils for an impalpable texture
Silicon Polymers for a mousse and Velvet Touch
Jellifying Agents for moisturisation
Texturing Powders for smooth application
Paraben Fee
Fragrance Free
Price and Quantity:
INR 675 for 6ml
These come in a glass tube with a silver twist cap. The applicator is perfect and it picks only the required amount of the product. However, the Deep Rose one doesn't stay normal. I mean whenever you want to use it and by the time you close it, the product comes out making the tube so messy. But the Deep Earth fit well.
More Pics of the Colorbar Deep Matte Lip Creme in Deep Rose and Deep Earth..I really liked the way they looked. :)

Best MAC Lipsticks for Indian Skin Tones-Picture Heavy Post

I do not have much introduction to this post as the title says it all.I did apply chapstick before applying each shade because my lips were crying for moisture.
The pictures were taken during the day without any flash. You might have already seen my previous post on Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lipsticks Review a while ago and now I am here to share my favorite MAC lipsticks which would flatter on all the Indian Skin tones. Or I must say, these are few MAC lipsticks which you may want to add to your lipstick collection.
See Sheer:
Beautiful lipstick that you will love if you are into corals. It is a lustre finish and that is what I like about this lipstick. Lustre is my favorite finish in MAC lipsticks because they apply sheer. They are very moisturizing and if you tend to have dry lips then these are the best way to go. Usually there is a notion that if the lipsticks are moisturizing then they don’t last on the lips for a long time and you most likely will have to reapply them frequently throughout the day. I totally agree with you but there is something different about this finish. They are moisturizing but not extremely shiny, pigmented but not opaque as other finishes from MAC, lasting but not long lasting as the mattes. This to me is a very complicated finish which I like a lot. Now if you are wondering if these are worth 16.00$ then I would say Yes and No. If you are new to makeup and are still trying out MAC and are not comfortable wearing full color pay off lipsticks then I would recommend this finish. But if you are someone who would not spend 16$ on a lipstick that is not even opaque then I would suggest going for cremesheen finish.
This color in particular is very summer, spring appropriate. This will suit any outfit that you choose to wear in summer or spring and looks great with neons too. Honestly you can wear this any time of the year if you want to. It does stain you lips little bit like you just had Fanta or kwality wall’s orange bar. (My favorite cold drink and ice cream by the way hehe.!!)

This is also a Lustre finish. This is a plum color and as it is sheer you can wear it to work. It might look scary in the tube but it is a lot better on the lips.

This is a matte finish lipstick. It is smoother to apply and it gives complete color pay off. It is also creamy but has no shine. Work appropriate and if you are of lighter skin tones then this will give you the 90’s lips that everyone is going crazy about these days. I am an NC44 and this gives me “my lips but a little brown” lips. I usually top it off with a beige lip gloss and that gives me my perfect nude lips.

Crème in your coffee:
Well, I don’t like coffee but I certainly like this one. It is a mauve shade and this lipstick will suit every skin tone. The lady at the MAC counter told me that this shade is very famous and sells out really fast. This is my go to shade to wear to school/college. This is just perfect pink mixed with perfect brown which makes it perfect for everyday (wink, wink). This is a cremesheen finish which is creamy, pigmented, lasts longer than lustre finish. If you want pigmentation and at the same time are looking for hydration then I would recommend this.

This is luster finish too (surprise surprise). It is pure brown, no pink undertone, no mauve undertone, no orange undertone, just brown. If you are darker than nc44 then this will be your hands down perfect nude. If you are lighter than nc44 then this will also make into 90’s grunge lips category and if you want that look than this will be a good choice.

Hug Me:
Lustre again…. I am sorry but this is my favorite finish. This is the lipstick that I keep in my purse and I don’t need a mirror to apply. I will repurchase this lipstick until they discontinue it. It is my lips in this lipstick and perfect for everyday especially if you are wearing soft eye kohl look. 

This is a Satin finish and satins are just like mattes but these are tiny bit creamier and a little bit shinier.  For lighter skin tones this is your Kylie Jenner lips in this tube but if you are of my skintone or even darker then this will make a very pretty pink lipstick. I tend to stay away from pinks but this is one that I don’t shy away from because this has undertones of brown mixed in it which is suitable for women of color.

This is my recent purchase and this is a satin as well. This my dear friends is an elegant plumish brown lips for medium to dark skin tones. Perfect if you are attending someone’s wedding or you if you want to wear a natural but still bold lipstick to office/work. This will look gorgeous if you have MAC’s all that glitters or naked lunch or any champagne gold eyeshadow on your lids. If I want to go for elegant look then this is the lipstick I go for.

Ruby Woo:
The very famous Ruby Woo. If you don’t own this then I suggest you open a new tab in your browser and order one immediately. There is no description required because this is an Indian women’s best friend. Blue based red which not only suits any skintone but also makes your teeth look white. This is a Retro Matte and is it known for its dryness. You have to moisturize and scrub your lips before you put this bad boy on. It is unforgiving if there are dry patches on the lips which obviously is not the flattering look that one would want. This can make or break your look, if you maintain your lips properly before you apply this then you will look like a diva, on the contrary if you don’t hydrate your lips then this will draw all the attention straight to the dry patches on the lips.

Flat Out Fabulous:
This is also a retro matte which means they stay on forever and your lips need to be prepared for that. This shade is a bright magenta which suits every skintone. This looks different on every skintone depending on the color of your lips. This comes off more magenta on me but on some people it looks vibrant pink, on some people it looks purple. I don’t have a perfect description for this lipstick but I do know that it looks pretty on every one.

Please remember that lipsticks look different on every skin tone depending on the color of the lips and when you go to the store and swatch them they will look washed out because of the lighting inside the store. So applying the lipstick to your lips instead of your hands is a good way to understand if you really like the lipstick or not. From personal experience, I advise you to never buy a lipstick unless you try it on your lips because I have wasted a lot of money by just looking at somebody on whom it looked pretty. Your lips are different they need special attention.

LÓreal-Color Riche Pure Reds Collection Lipstick-Review,Swatches

L'Oréal Paris kept us wanting more the last year with their continuous launches of new products. I am sure nobody forgot their Moist Matte Lipsticks. Even before we think of anything else, the brand has come up with a new collection of lipsticks called the Pure Reds. There are  shades of lipsticks with the names dedicated to their brand ambassadors which include our very own Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor and Freida Pinto. I really loved the entire collection. I have the Sonam Kapoor's shade named as "Pure Garnet" lipstick.

Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in You Took My Love,Keep Trying For You - Review,Swatches,LOTD

Matte Lips are my go-to makeup and I always prefer sporting a matte lip rather a glossy one. Most of the times, I leave my hair open and my hair gets stuck to the gloss and which totally irritates me. May be this can be the primary reason but I am not really sure on why I like keeping my lips matte. They are known to be dupe of Lime Crime Velvetines.

Maybelline Colorshow Lipsticks in Fuchsia Flare and Crushed Candy-Review,Swatches,LOTD

Maybelline recently launched their Colorshow Glitter Mania Nail Paints. They were such a big hit. I own them too. you can check the review and swatches of the Glitter Mania nail paints here
Anyway I was not really sure about the Colorshow Lipsticks Launch. I mean, there was no publicity from the brand and the lipsticks are still not available in all the stores. I only got to know when I accidentally checked the Maybelline counter few days back in a near by Health N Glow Store.
I am surprised to find that, HnG stores are the only one to have these Lipsticks. I guess, by August end..Every maybelline counter is expected to stock these lipsticks throughout India.
Can I call myself Lucky O:)
As I got a chance to own them before many of you girls :) :D

Streetwear Color Rich Lipstick in Mystic Mauve-Review,Swatches-Dupe Alert

Heyya girls.. Back after a small gap. I am slowly developing an addiction for lipsticks. Let it be Maybelline, Chambor silk touch or Colorbar range.. I am in love with everything :)
So after the first lipstick from streetwear impressed me so much.. I went ahead and bought a colour which is usually not my kind. I have never tried this colour before and hence I bought this one. You may want to check this one

Streetwear Color Rich Ultramoist Lipstick in Pink Pirouette Review,Swatches

Hey girls.. Ever thought of getting back to college ? Ever thought of dressing like one college-goer or getting ready like one ? Well.. I guess Revlon heard us and hence the brand launched these cuties.I am referring to Streetwear ! yes, a budget friendly brand that got a complete makeover in the recent times. I happened to see them at a store and immediately grabbed one lipstick. I swatched most of them and finally stuck to this one.

Revlon Corstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Designer Review,Swatches LOTD & Bloopers

Not so long ago, I won a contest on New Love Makeup Blog and I chose this one. Apart from all the other shades, this one was brighter and also the most wearable. So after using it for every time I go out I have come to a conclusion hence the review.

Faces Go Chic Lipstick in Twig-Review,Swatches,On My Lips

Hello pretty ladies
I don't know what is going through my head while I keep writing the reviews of lipsticks that are more like the daily wear and not really hot or funky. These no doubt make my MLBB shades but you know it is pretty boring if I get to wear same lipstick to work and to a party. Anyway, coming out of my drama let me present you one chic lipstick from Faces Cosmetics,Canada.
Price and Quantity:
INR 249 for 4.5gms you can buy here or
What the website says about these:
"Where were you all this while?!" - was our customers' reaction to this winner. Awesome shades, perfect application, light, easy and pocket-friendly - there's something for everyone here.


The lipstick comes in a black shiny plastic bullet with the silver rim with the brand name written on it. It is not so sturdy but its classy.
My Take:
We know the brand since long for its affordable makeup and good quality. I have come across this brand just last year and slowly started trying out their products. I own two lipsticks from this range. Twig and Candyfloss. Twig is a browney mauvy colour which is perfect for everyday. It is a neutral shade. It is creamy and super smooth. It gives opaque finish in a single swipe. It is moisturising enough for my dry lips. The package is sturdy and the bullet cap closes with a click sound and travel friendly. Everything about this lipstick is great except for the staying power. God knows why this doesn't stay on my lips for more than an hour. Apart from that, I really do not have a single reason on why you should skip this.
On Me:
My Rating:
It is a must have for college goers(I guess the name is apt for it) but not for the women.I mean, the staying power is poor. It wipes away leaving nothing in an hour. If you have a habit of tying a scarf around your face while travelling, then make sure to apply it all over again once you are done with your journey coz it must have been taken away by the cloth. Apart from this, it is easy on pocket and many shades to choose. Moisturizing and chic!

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Pure Innocence 012 Review,Swatches,On my Lips

Price and Quantity:
275 INR for 4.2gm
It used to be 250 but they hiked the prices. Why colorbar ? why ?
What the website claim about this lipstick:
For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvett Matte Lipstick, available in stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvett Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.
How to use it:
Line the lips with a suitable lip liner. Press the bullet to the lips using even pressure to apply color on both upper and lower lips: To refresh and even out, press lips together. Using a lip brush gives a richer and more precise color application.
The Package
The lipstick comes in a silver bullet with a transparent cap (COLORBAR is printed on the cap) and with silver rim. The name of the lipstick and the number is written on the bottom of the lipstick. The lipstick is travel friendly. But the plastic cap is a bit cheap and it may break if the lipstick falls on any hard surface.
My Experience with the product:
As my positive note it says that I love this lipstick. It has a not so creamy texture but it glides on the lips easily. It has superb pigmentation which covers up my dark lips. The lipstick is just perfect for daily wear and for work. This particular lipstick is slightly mauvy brown but it turns out to be my kind of easy shade to wear. It suits my dusky skin tone so very perfectly. The lipstick is best applied when the lips are properly exfoliated. This is basically a matte lipstick which can emphasize the dryness of the lips. It stays on for 4 hours which include light snacks and drinks. This lipstick stains the coffee cups. The best way to avoid it is to blot it after the application. It leaves a nice mauvy stain on lips.For best results,exfoliate,apply lip balm and then use this lippie.

On my lips

My rating: 
Gosh..!! I can never have enough of these. Do get them. They have something for everybody.

Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Rosy Nude Review,Swatches,LOTD

Hey girls..I am here with a lipstick which has been bought in impulse.These days I am wearing lipstick so that it is clearly visible on my pigmented lips. You can say that I am going bold these days.Unlike the usual appu,who was a nude lipstick freak,You can check 6 Nude lipsticks for Indian SkinTone (yeah,I was not bold enough to know the fact that I can actually carry a pink pout or coral lips).Now that I realized that those bright colors suit me more than the usual nude, I stuck to them! But, this one is an exception. Read on to know more.
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Rosy Nude Review,Swatches,LOTD
This was bought in impulse lol I know,I was swatching few of these lipsticks in the Revlon Counter and suddenly saw this too and tried it on,may be coz I already tried few lipsticks,the colour seemed to be really dark and it suited me so well.No point,if I didn't buy then.I just bought it.

Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Rosy Nude Review,Swatches,LOTD

What does the website say about these:
Thanks to Elasticolor formula which gives your lips a burst of colour that feels lighter. This Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick leaves lips looking fuller, feeling soft, and appearing voluptuous. The colors are rich and luminous, with a smooth and creamy texture that glides easily on the lips for buildable coverage. The lipstick embodies the sensuality of women.
Contains film-forming polymers for longer wear and skin conditioning properties.
Moisturizers and anti-oxidants, including Sweet Almond Oil, improve lip texture.

Check the above pic !
The bullet shape is a bit different compared to any other lipsticks. This makes it easy to apply.
The Shade and texture:
The shade rosy nude is a pinky nude lipstick which surprisingly falls in my MLBB lipstick collection. This when swatched on my hand,found to be more mauvy pink which I thought would go with my office wear. But on my lips,it turns may be a bit pinky but yes! suits me so well. It doesn't make me feel as if I applied any lipstick at all.
The texture wise,it is so weightless. The formula itself is just great for daily wear.
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Rosy Nude Review,Swatches,LOTD
My Experience with the product:
This is my first ever Revlon lipstick apart from the lip crayons and the matte balm. I have loved their crayons so much and that's owned the matte balm.However,I never inclined to their range of lipsticks before.But now that I have tried one,I want to own few more especially the peachy and red lipsticks from this range. The Color Burst Lipsticks are basically more pigmented and feel light on lips.Since they are not matte and the staying power is a bit low.One swipe gives out the colour but if you have more pigmented lips,you may have to swipe 2-3 times.It smells nothing fancy or heavy but just mild which fades away after the application.It doesn't have glitters but it does have sheen to it.When in sunlight,it has a bit shine.It stays put for 2 and a half hours and it doesn't really survive food. It doesn't stains the lips and reapplication is necessary.
For a change, I have compiled the same swatch in different lighting. Just to have an idea.
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Rosy Nude Review,Swatches,LOTD
The clear colour is pretty much visible in the "With Flash"
And that's how it looks on me.
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Rosy Nude Review,Swatches,LOTD
1. Amazing everyday shade.
2. Covers the lip pigmentation.
3. Creamy formula and not drying.
4. Easily available.
5. Super sturdy and classy package.
6. Quantity.
7.Innovative bullet design and with the letters "REVLON" on it.It sure looks classy.
Price is okay for the quality.
Staying power could have been more.
My rating:
One point less for the not so amazing staying power.
Have you tried the Color Burst Lipsticks from Revlon?
If yes,what's your fav. ?
