Sugar Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick-26 Rose Repose

I love Lipstick, I love matte, I love liquid lipstick. Last year I tried one shade from Sugar smudge me not range and that was plum yum. While writing this review I checked I have not reviewed plum yum yet so will review that soon. I really liked the range Alot. In fact I love sugar cosmetics aloooot. Though the formula is extremely drying. But if your lips are well moisturized you can manage.

Price- Rs 499/-

My View-

I wanted to try one more shade from newly launched color. I chose this one I thought this will be different. Though u have many shades likes this in my vanity. But obviously formulas are different.

  • it’s extremely drying so you definitely need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips very well. You can not skip the prep process

  • it’s highly pigmented. Just one swipe and you are done

  • not at all transferable. That’s why the name smudge me not.

  • staying power superb. Stays full day on me. Survive normal meals oily meals can make it flaky and that’s the biggest con as it doesn’t uniformly. Lips look crumbled.

Summary- if you are fine with extremely dry formula it’s a must have range. They have awesome shades to chose from.

Currently obsessing over-3

Past 10-15 days have been quite hectic for me hence not so regular on blogs. Well there are so many product reviews are in my drafts I just need to edit and publish. So I hope in coming future will review many products.

But for now let’s discuss about what I am currently obsessing.

  1. Doodle- I think this is going to be my forever love. There are so many possibilities in doodling all you need is an open mind. Sharing couple of pics below which I draw recently

  1. Books- books are a man (and woman’s too) best friend. Finished reading The Animal Farm by Jeorge Orwell. It’s a satire and still completely matches.

  1. Lip love- I am a big time makeup lover especially lip products. I recently got Jeffree star Cosmetics lip palette. Will review it soon.

  1. Eye makeup- once upon a time I was all about eye makeup but slowly I started experimenting more and now I am again back to it. My eyeshadow collection.

Thats it for now.

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lip Color- Role-a-cola

Who don’t like a fun color especially if you are a Lipstick lover like me you definitely like to explore different shades and formulas. It has been long time that LakmeLip Pout Masaba Lip Color was launched. I liked their packaging but somehow I felt there is no new colours. Infact there is nothing new except for packaging. But to my surprise I found this color which is really different. Let’s see whether I liked it or not.

Price- Rs 750/-

Product Packaging- it comes in a twisted crayon kind of packaging. The crayon is well designed

My View-

It’s that cola color. Yes it is a cola color. This is not very usual color. I don’t think I can wear it on regular basis or at any place. It has got its own charm. I though loved this shade aloooot. this color is very dominating and will look good with well coordinated makeup. So it’s better to either wear it alone or with well coordinated makeup.

Formula is not complete matte but yes almost matte. Pigmentation is great and staying power is good too. On my lips it stayed around 5-6 hours without meal. It can survive light meal.

Summary- if you like to explore different colour you can give it a try. It’s not something you can wear as formal or on regular basis.

Nykaa Sealed With a Kiss! Lip Palette- Flower Child 02

When Nykaa launched Sealed with a Kiss lip palette I was really excited. You get 6 colours in a palette that means super travel Friendly and that too in Rs 650/- a good deal isn’t it. But I saw lot of people posted on Nykaa’s Instagram feed that pigmentation is poor, it’s not completely Matt and blah blah. So I thought to give it a miss. For long time I controlled my urge but I thought let’s give it a try. Pigmentation is not an issue I will use it as balm and it’s not completely matte I am totally fine with that too. So after a little research I settled with Flower child this one have Red, Pink and Blush tones.

Let’s see whether I liked it or not

Price- Rs 650/-

Packaging- it comes in a square box in which 3-3 shades are there with an applicator. Honestly I didn’t like the aoolicator at all. I use my fingers only for application. I feel in that way it gives a little warmth to shade and it shows its color more beautifully.

My View-

-I simply loved this palette. I don’t understand why people expect so many things in this price.

-As much flower child is concerned it has red,pink and blush shade.

-I tried from the given applicator as well from brush I have but I will highly suggest to use your fingers to get the true color. I understand it’s little messy and unhygienic but it’s worth.

  • you have to apply 2-3 times to get good opaque color.

  • the formula looks solid cream in pan and settle as creamy matte on lips

  • formula is very comfortable on lips, it is hydrating too. Just in case if you missed to moisturize your lips before you don’t need to worry. But it will be good if lips are non flaky.

  • color stays for good 4-5 hours on my lips. Even after meal when color fades it leaves a beautiful tint. It looks very even

  • this palette is also meant for use as blush. I have used the same and trust me it gives you a very natural flushed skin. Just a little and blend blend blend. It looks so natural and fresh.

I so loved this palette that I got another one too Girl Boss. I will review the same very soon.

Now coming to swatches below. I have gone left top, right top, left middle, right middle, left bottom and right bottom.

In below hand Swatch the above one is top to down

Summary- this is a good multi use product. I have used this as blush and it works wonderfully.

Currently Obsessing Over-2

I liked this idea of Currently Obsessing Over. So I am going to do on regular basis preferably weekly and it will not be only about makeup or fashion. It can be anything I am obsessed about.

So let’s see what I am obsessing over these days:-

  1. Book reading- I love reading books from school time only. In my house I have dedicated a corner for books only. I just finished this book “Siddhartha- by Hermann Hesse”. This book is on a journey of a man Siddhartha. And I loved it alot. You can read my review on this book here

  1. Watercolor Painting- I am extremely beginner in watercolor painting. I use to love it alot in school days so I thought to resume it once again. As of now I have only used student watercolor this time I got artist water color. Though it’s the most basic Artist watercolor palette but I can clearly see the difference. I also got a round brush set again the basic one but atleast it’s much better than what we get along with the palettes. I have a dedicated hobby blog. Though I am not much active on that but lately I am getting quite active on that too. You can check the blog here

  1. YBPxShreya Jain Color cream- The mermaid- I can’t even tell how much I am in love with this. Price factor is the only concern else I would have ordered other 3 right now only. May be one by one I will do the same. There is nothing I don’t like about this cream shade. I will do a detail review very soon.

  1. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick- Crosswires- my favourite pink based coral shade right now. Again review pending

5. Artificial Lotus in White vase- I find it so attractive and soothing

So these are the things I am currently obsessing over.

NELF USA The Miami Matte Lipstick- Embrace

I came to know about this brand from Nykaa.com only. So NELF stands for Nail, Eyes, Lips and Face. They have products related to them. I wanted to try their product and hence ordered The Miami Matte Lipstick in Embrace. Let’s see whether I liked it or not.

Price- Rs 175/-

Packaging- looks cheap may be it’s because of price factor. But there are various lippies which comes at same price or even less but average packaging is there.

My View-

As I was disappointed by packaging I didn’t had any expectations from the lipstick. But to my surprise it was nicely pigmented very smooth in application and looked really nice on lips. It does transfer alot but that’s the case with most of the Lipstick. You need reapplication in every 3-4 hours or after any meal.

This Lipstick serves the purpose of a budget Lipstick. They have good range of color the only problem is lack of swatches. I made wild guess and ordered the same. But I am very happy as embrace is a wonderful mauve shade. And mauve is my all time favourite colour in Lipstick.

Summary- its good for budget buy

Blue Heaven Gossip Matte Lipstick- 06

It was my second buy from Blue Heaven. After I tried their Lipstick from Splash Super Matte range I wanted to try one more but from different range. Hence I ordered this one. In this range there is no name only code. I chose the shade 06.

Price- Rs 150/-

Packaging- it’s good and comes as colour coded bullet

My Views-

So as it was my second product from blue heaven. In first product rest everything was okay except for the color. I made a wrong choice. So this time I wanted to go safe and ordered this dark color. Again there was no shade pic just a small icon showing the color. On internet also not much of the reviews. As I generally prefer dark color hence I went ahead with this one.

And I must say I am so glad I did. It’s such a wonderful and bright plum shade. Totally in love with this. It’s nicely pigmented settle as matte lipstick , staying power is also good. The only problem is like it’s splash super matte range while application it feels pulling and tugging. Infact this one is more drying. Perhaps the price difference says so. Splash super matte comes in Rs 175/- hence little bit more moisturizing.

Summary- i liked this color. Though formula wise it’s average. But a good budget buy.

Blue Heaven Splash Super Matte Lipstick- 305 Pink Delicacy

Blue Heaven brand gives me nostalgic feeling. In my school days for any school function we use to get these Blue Heaven cosmetics for makeup. I remember their eyeliner and mascara.

Well so now Blue Heaven has revamped the brand and perhaps the whole range too. I wanted to try their product from long time for review purpose. So I ordered couple of things. Today I am going to review a Lipstick from their splash super matte range.

Price- Rs 175/-

Packaging- looking at price packaging is okay. They do look cheap but look cute too. Overall I am fine with packaging.

My Views-

As I ordered it online so I had no clue about shade. The shade they show as referral is of least use. I tried to search online but in vain. As it was for Rs 175/- so thought to take a chance and anyway with mixing colors you can make any color work for you. So I went ahead and ordered the shade “pink delicacy”.

So i did make wrong choice. This pink is like bright baby pink kind of shade which will look good only on fair skin. It totally washed me out. Now for the wrong choice of shade I can’t blame the brand. Will anyway make it work with mixing any other color.

Coming to formula it’s a matte lipstick. So when you apply you will feel a little dragging and pulling on your lips. But once settled it will settle as cream matte in some time. Pigmentation is good. It does transfer and staying power is average like I can say 3-4 hours. It little bit start fading.

Summary-May be I will try different shade from this range in future. But one thing is for sure this is a good budget buy. The only thing is color selection.

Eylina Lip Crayon Twist Up Radiant Orchid

One day I was going through YouTube videos and I came to know about this brand. When I checked on Nykaa it was available on it. I couldn’t stop myself in ordering one lippy from this brand. After a little research I settled with Radiant Orchid one.

Well I really liked this name, it feels so soothing isn’t it. Let’s see whether I liked the shade and formula or not.

Price- Rs 299/-

Packaging- it comes in a twist up crayon and I really liked it. At this price it doesn’t look cheap.

My View-

I loved the shade. I wanted this violet kind of deep bright shade and this is that shade. Formula wise I am disappointed though. But at this price I should not complain much. This Lipstick is matte finish one and definitely it is a complete matte shade. Pigmentation is great too. Staying power to my surprise was good too, it survived small meals very nicely. As it’s a matte lipstick it’s drying on lips so you need to have a moisturized lip.

So when everything is good what I didn’t liked is the application. When you apply this it literally feels you are pulling your lips stretching it. Application is not at all smooth. Well if you apply lip balm and after that you use this it will feel much better but the finish will be glossy. This particular shade will look good on every skin tone.

Sumnary- overall I am happy. Not many know about this brand though whatever description I read it says they are cruelty free brand and follow the international standards for quality. Those who are in budget can give this one a try.
