Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick in MAT 2 : Review and Swatches !!

It is summer when you sweat incessantly at 6 AM. And the dreadful summers are back in Chennai. Summer in Chennai is not a cause for celebration I guarantee you. But the least one can do is smother the lips in bright orange colors ;) 

Personally I am a fan of creamy glossy lipsticks. Then there are days when even the creamy lover in me longs for the bleed proof matte lipsticks. If you are in the lookout for a matte lipstick in orange at a budget friendly price, you have landed at the right page.





The Maybelline MAT 4 lipstick is a warm orange shade with red undertones that makes it look amazing on warm skin tones.


Though it is a matte lipstick, the application goes smooth and even. No patchiness.




The pigmentation is damn good. I need only a single swipe to cover my lips. But if your lips are very pigmented, you can run over once more for an even color deposit.

Since it is matte, I would urge you to apply a lip balm 10 mins before and wipe it off prior to application.




It settles to a matte finish within seconds of application and stays put for a solid 3 hours. On eating food, it fades out from the center of lips. So touch up is needed after food.

Starts drying out my lips after an hour so I keep applying a colorless lip balm at regular intervals.




It turns to a hot pink shade on my lips after sometime but all oranges turn hot pink on me :( 

I really love the color and matte finish of the lipstick. It is not neon-y yet brightens the face instantly. A great color for the Indian skin.




MAT 4 is redder and darker compared to MAT2.

Disclaimer : The product was sent by the brand for consideration. But my opinions are honest swear to God ;) 

P.S : I so want to own Lady danger and Vegas Volt from MAC but ended up picking up from some other color family this time. Will review that soon :)

Maybelline The Colossal Eyeliner Review

So here I am with more than adequate experience with the newly launched Maybelline colossal eyeliner. And I must say I am hooked all the way.

It used to be just my kajal and mascara till 2 months back. Eyeliner was reserved for days I felt awesome. Then I got the Hypersharp liner which I will review shortly. But suffice to say this colossal liner from the same brand has made me wear eyeliner everyday since the day I got it. 




Time for the formal review tadaaa.

Price : Rs. 450/- 

The eyeliner comes in the form of a pen with a sketchy (?) tip. The felt tip makes application really a breeze. One can make the liner thin/thick easily. The tip is not as fine as that of hypersharp but if you are someone who finds it hard to make thick/medium sized lines with the hypersharp, you would love this one.




The color is not jet black but is very well pigmented. You can build up the intensity without the eyeliner going flaky.





Staying power is 7-8 hours after which it starts fading but does not disappear completely :) I do not have oily lids so you might want to take that into consideration.

Overall I am impressed with this liner. So if you are someone who is not adept at doing the liner with liquid liners, give this a shot. I bet you would go gaga over this one ;) 

Lakme Absolute Kohl on the upper and lower waterlines, Maybelline Colossal eyeliner on the upper lashline and L'oreal Million Volume lashes mascara on the lashes work together great to make your peepers look "ah well beautiful" :)

Chambor Moisture Plus Lipstick in Coral Plus Review and Swatches!!

I am a hopelessly romantic person. Even little gestures make me go mushy.

And a lip color that has the perfect mixture of coral and pink whipped together is sure to make me go weak in the knees ;)

So when I came across the shade in Flirtatious Pink Take me as I am lipcolor from Colorbar, I was ready to splurge till Deepika asked me to check the Chambor counter. Armed with the wrist swatch of FP, I marched down and found the same shade in Moisture Plus range :D 200 bucks saved phew!!'




This is my first Chambor makeup product not considering the makeup remover I received as a part of some bag once:O Never got around to buying stuff from their counter. Coming to the packaging, it has a navy blue body with silver band around the opening. Previously these used to have a full silver body. Sturdy and travel friendly packaging but very mediocre to look at.




The color as mentioned is a soft coral pink that luks fresh.





The texture is soft. Glides buttery smooth and has good pigmentation. Pigmented lips can be covered with 2/3 swipes. Does not look cakey when built up.


Provides a creamy finish and glossy sheen on application. The sheen vanishes after 20-30 mins and the color lasts for 2-3 hours without food. For this price, the lipstick should last longer.




Is transferable but any lipstick should be left alone at least for the initial 30 mins or so to set. Becomes less prone to transfer that way :)

The one daunting thing about this lipstick is the smell.It has a weird smell that lasts for 10 mins at least and I really do not appreciate it.





It has a white moisture core at the center that lends a softness to the lipstick. 

Price : Rs. 695/-

Overall, a pretty fresh take on the coral pink lipsticks. I would use it more often had it not been the fragrance.

Loved this color ? Or is it Nay ? 

Till Next Post ;)

Lipstick Love : Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 9 Review and Swatches!!

I have become more of a clothes (and shoes) convert these days. So the little makeup I purchase, I make sure are the ones I would use during the week.

Maybelline Lip Polishes. I could safely call them one of the best products by the brand. Priced : 499 Rs.



The tube is ultra cute with the inside looking like an inverted lipstick tube but is actually a gloss. As mentioned in the Glam 6 review, lip polishes are a cross between gloss and lipstick. 

The shade Glam 9 is a bubblegum pink. Confession time. I hate Boomer bubblegums. The smell gives me headache :O But the shade is pretty. A little cool toned bubblegum pink with slight silver shimmers that will look great on fair/medium skin but may wash out dusky skin.



The petal applicator is really soft but the application goes streaky. Really uneven. So I apply a little on my lips and smoothen it out with fingers for even finish.

It feels very comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. Lip balm is not a definite need with this. Soft and cushiony lips :)




Gets easily transferred. 

The glossiness stays for 30 mins or so. The color vanishes after 2 hours without eating/drinking. But with food, it will disappear immediately.





Overall, I love the lip polish for its texture, wearable color and moisturizing feel.

Thumbs up from my side :)
