Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick – 05 Ole Flamingo: Usually I stay miles away from Hot Pink lippies, but this soft matte deep pink gem is my exactly kinda fuchsia. The soft, velvety formula & incredibly intense pigmentation of Bourjois Lipsticks hits the top of my chart every single time. The sponge doe-foot applicator attached to it makes application super easy & precise. Unlike the others, this Velvet Matte range does not dry out the lips, or exaggerate cracked lips. The beauty of this shade is you can easily carry out for a daytime look as well, with a gentle swipe and build up the colour for a bold pretty pink for night time.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss – 103: The colour is perfect during the day time, especially if you are looking up a daily wearable shade for the workplace. Finding a good neutral shade for Brown skin can be frustrating, the nude-pink matte lippies, is just enough pink to give a little pop of colour to my lips. The staying power is fairly decent, but you will need to reapply every 2-3 hours. As for the texture, initially, it is somewhat moisturising but leaves an unappealing grainy residue after few hours.

 

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss – 106: Though being from the same range, the texture is so different; it has a slightly satin finish contradicting the name itself. But the fun raspberry, pink-based red shade looks so attractive on any skin tone. It has a floral fruity scent, but this does not last more than a few minutes. You can experience minor bleeding if you do not use a good lip liner.

 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream SMLC 11 Milan: First and foremost this particular colour looks different from person to person depending on the skin tone. On me, it is a bubblegum pink, with a bluish undertone. The scent of NYX matte liquid lipstick range is phenomenal, vanilla buttercream cupcake on your lips is like a dream come true. Out of the lot, these are super affordable, but usually, sell out pretty fast, so grab them straight away. The unique formula is creamy mousse-like however feels like a very light additional layer on your lips (the only drawback). I top this lippie with San Paulo for a slightly dark shade, which looks so good on Brown Indian Skin tone.

 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream SMLC 08 San Paulo: Trying out new Nyx lip creams are always on my wishing list and this particular shade has been on my favourites list for a very long time mainly because it looks gorgeous when the rest of the face is with minimal or no make-up. The texture is like soft, light whipped cream and it feels like dessert on the lips! This product would certainly be worth repurchasing. The colour is a beautiful, warm plummy rose shade which is very rich and highly pigmented. Plus the price is right!

Until next time, Much Love
