As 2015 comes to an end, I really wanted to share with you lovely ladies some of my favourite lippies. But this time I’m not alone, the gorgeous Indian Beauty Nihara Hareesh from Lifestyle Glossary has decided to join me on this journey of Reds, Pinks, Browns. Without further ado, I bring to you my most cherished colors & textures this year.
1.NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘San Paulo’: If you are a fan of liquid lipsticks, this is a divine choice, the entire range of NYX is super pigmented and long lasting. For starters, this shade smells heavenly like cupcakes on your lips. It is subtle pink with a hint of berry making it perfect for brown skin girls. AED 32
2.Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in ‘Beau Brun’ 12: Jeez! I don’t even know where to begin to express my obsession with this lipstick. This lipstick glides on like butter and is incredibly light on your lips but not a huge fan of the smell. This shade is a mixture of red & brown tone great for your everyday workplace look. AED 79
3. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in ‘Rum Raisin’ 535: The most wearable of the bunch, perfect for everyday use. This soft brown-peach color compliments my skin tone perfectly. The pigmentation is great and the formulation is creamy and moisturising though the staying power is not the best, the color is so versatile and flattering that it has been in my makeup bag ever since I bought it. AED 52
4. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in ‘Cutting Edge’ 120: This purplish-plum vamp color is the best choice for your evening parties and outings. The fragrance is of baby shampoo or oil which doesn’t bother me at all, with a tinge of shine and spectacular pigmentation, you only have to reapply this after 5-6 hours. AED 42
5. Vipera Elite Matt Lipstick Copper ‘African Tulip’ 106: I recently discovered this brand and was massively impressed by this gorgeous dark red-berry-brownish shade. I just found my happy color for Fall and Winters this year which instantly brighten ups my face, a great color payoff with a long-lasting matte finish. The major turn off was the smell – reminds me of those icky childhood cough syrups. AED 54
6. Avon Ultra Colour Matte lipstick in ‘Matte Ruby’: Another brand discovery, I was sent this in the October Therapy box handpicked to suit my skin tone. A bright cool toned red with a tinge of fuchsia undertone giving it an exciting pink-red shade. AED 49
