Crayon and matte deadly combination for me. I like crayon types lippies and if they are matte, it becomes a must have for me.
Price- Rs 650/-
I wanted to try this one from long and I ordered Victorian Rose online. I loved the name and I like rose pink red kind of color. Well I was not disappointed at all.
So let’s come to this particular color. It’s red…yes. It’s pink…yes. It’s coral…yes. It’s bright…yes. It’s beautiful …yes. Actually the color is true to its name Victorian Rose. It’s actually pink which is little red and color kind of.
It will go very well with almost all Indian skin tone. Formula is really matte so you need to apply a lip balm first if you have dry lips and it will look good on exfoliated lips.
Pigmentation is super good just one Swatch is enough and it stays on me for around 5-6 hrs.
This was my first Elle 18 lippy and when I saw it (they didn’t had tester L ), I instantly fell in love with this beautiful shade.
Elle 18 Color Pops Lipstick- Rosy Blush
PRODUCT PRICE –
Rs 100/- (I think it has been hiked to Rs 120 now)
Though the name is rosy blush and first thing comes in our mind is pink pink. But rose is not always pink isn’t it J It’s an orangey red you can see in the swatch below.
- I love its creamy texture and its moisturizing too.
- Pigmentation is really good.
- Staying power is ok ok
- Smell is bubble gum kind of and I really don’t like it.
- It’s a very bright shade so not suitable for office or formal occasion
- You can make it matte after blotting it and it look really beautiful.
A beautiful orangey shade for budget
I love warm red color shade which is little more on orangish red and matte. Last month my Avon Rep friend recommended me this. I was little confused as whether I will be able to carry it or not. Between I am on hunt of “mera waala red color from past 3 years”. But nothing I find so flattering. There is some con.
Avon Ultra Color Lipstick Lava Love SPF 15
PRODUCT PRICE & QUANTITY-
Rs 359/- for 3.8gm (you can get it on discount)
SWATCH & FRAGRANCE-
It’s very pigmented in just one swatch it gives a satin smooth finish and look proper red. But when you do multiple swatches it becomes more fiery orangish red with little glossy finish. Fragrance is mild not so overpowering.
I was super excited to try this shade. And when I tried I really liked the pigmentation part and finish. But still I am not so comfortable to carry it in normal days. Obviously who will like to look like a bride or a festive season girl? The lipstick comes in good black packaging with a see-through top. I have other shade also from same range so it somehow helps me in recognizing the shade. Staying power is good around 4-5 hrs after that it started fading. It does transfer. But it doesn’t bleed at least not on me. Though for bright colors I always use lip liners. You don’t need a layer of lip balm beneath it. It’s moisturizing too. I really liked this shade but still looking for mera waala red. But as of now I am really happy. One more point is it comes with SPF 15
If you are looking for good budget red color lipstick it’s a must buy.
As of now I have only reviewed personal care product no makeup item. So with this shade of Maybelline Moisture Extreme lipstick in Cranberry I will start the review. Well I was looking for a perfect Red shade for me and I swatched it at Maybelline counter and liked it…so purchased it.

It’s deep red color with little hint of orange at least it shows little orangish on my lips. You can see in the LOTD below. It’s little glossy and smooth.
Well I purchased this just for the motive of getting a red lippy for me. It’s not that red which I wanted but it’s pretty one for sure. It gives a glossy finish. True to it’s name moisture it doesn’t dry my lips (my lips are very drying in nature). It’s very pigmented give a good coverage in just one swipe. But it’s staying power is quite less. On me it stays for around 2-3 hrs. that too without any meal. It doesn’t completely vanish though leaves a beautiful reddish stain which I love. ❤

Below are the + points-
- It’s a pretty red which will look good on Indian Skin.
