A bright red on a Monday morning or a barbie pink for a lunch date, there is a lipstick for everyone in this world.

Liquid lipsticks have taken the beauty world by storm. They are fuss free, give a beautiful matte finish, and look gorgeous.

When work looks this pretty!

Here’s my pick of top 5 liquid lipsticks under Rs 1000/-

  1. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color 

True to its name, this one has a mousse like consistency. It dries matte, feels very comfortable on the lips, and the best part, these lipsticks don’t dry your lips.

I had talked about these lippies in a monthly favorites post which you can read here.

Love the formulation. It’s so light yet highly pigmented.

2. Diana of London 2000 Kisses Liquid Lipstick

Color – Red Nature

It is a hot red color which adds a pop of color to the look. After Ruby Woo by Mac, if there is any red lipstick that I adore, it is this beauty.

Such a stunning red this is!

The staying power is good. It can survive if you nibble something or carefully sip something.

  • Comes in a transparent packaging
  • It has a powder matte feel, but dries down completely matte
  • The fragrance reminds me of baby powder
  • Non-transfer proof and light weight
  • Doesn’t settle into lines and doesn’t bleed

Price – 770/- for 8ml

3. The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid

Color – Goa Magnolia 026 (its a berry pink color)

Out of all the formulations mentioned, this is my favorite. It is so weightless and comfortable that you barely feel it on your lips. There is a fabulous color range so you can pick a couple of them.

Summer or Winter, a beautiful berry color is a mus have
  • Comes in a clear tube
  • Has a light fruity fragrance
  • Pointed applicator, so you can easily work around the corners of your lips
  • And the biggest plus – these are cruelty free and aren’t tested on animals

4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

The world is crazy for these soft matte lip creams. They have a creamy texture and a soft matte finish, truly flattering. There are a myriad shades – from usual reds and pinks to daring blue, pretty purple, and beautiful burgundy.

You can never have enough of these!

Lovely shades.
Thanks Namita Malik for these pretty pictures.
  • They are named after world cities, how cool is that!
  • Comes in a convenient transparent packaging
  • Doesn’t feather or bleed
  • Will not survive a meal
  • Value for money
  • Isn’t as long lasting as Diana of London or Chambor, so you might need touch ups

Beautiful colors, comfortable feel, what else can you ask for?

Price – 600/- to 750/- for 6.5g

5. Chamber Extreme Wear Trnasferproof Liquid Lipstick

Out of the lot, this particular one is most drying. Make sure you prep your lips well with a lip balm. Dab off the excess and then apply this lipstick, or else be prepared for dry parched lips.

Forever envying bestie’s lipstick stash.
Thanks Dr. Garima 🙂
  • Comes in transparent packing
  • Good formula, but I am not a fan of the applicator. It is quite broad, so you can mess up the corners of your lips
  • Lasts the longest out of the 5 mentioned lipsticks
  • Partially survives a meal, will fade after that leaving an outline
  • On re-applying it can patchy and can flake off
Chambor liquid lipsticks India
Lots of colors to choose from.

My favorite color is 403. It’s a bright cool toned fuchsia.

I just hope these were a little less drying on the lips.

Love at first sight!

Price – 845/- for 6ml

If you love liquid lipsticks, I suggest you invest in a good quality lip scrub. Exfoliate your lips 1-2 times a week for a kissable pout.

May Favorites 2017

March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers.

It’s hard to believe that almost half of 2017 is over. May was a happy productive month. And now it is that time of the month when I sit down to compile my list of favorites.

Compiling monthly favorites is a happy feeling.

So here goes, all the things that I’ve loved through the month – May Favorites.

  1. Forest Essentials Roop Nikhar Gulab Ubtan

If you haven’t tried Forest Essntials ubtans, you don’t know what you’re missing in life. Let your skin indulge in the goodness of all things natural with this ubtan. You can mix it with rosewater or aloe-vera gel and use it twice a week.

Forest Essentials
I’ve been biased for all things ‘rose’ this month.
This ubtan though is pure love!

The granules are fine but when mixed it can be used as a scrub as well. The good thing is, it’s gentle on the skin and gives a radiant glow.

I’m not a fan of rose fragrance, but this one seems to be nice. It’s sweet yet not overpowering. The price is on the higher end, but it is worth all the money.

Price – 825/- for 50g

Forest Essentials Gulab Ubtan Review
You can use it as a scrub or as a mask.

2. Biotique Honey Gel Refreshing Foaming Face Cleanser

After a lot of searching, I’ve found the perfect cleanser. Enriched with the goodness of honey, this one is suitable for all skin types and is a 100% soap free formulation.

Biotique facial cleanser
Gentle on the skin, and on the pocket as well 😉

There are times when your face feels stretchy and dry after using a face wash. It won’t happen when you use this cleanser. It lathers well, has a mild pleasant fragrance, gives you squeaky clean skin, and is super affordable (the best part).

Price – 149/- for 20ml

3. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color

What’s a favorite post without some lipstick love! Have been crushing over these lipsticks all this month. There are 10 shades in the range, and I have two of them – Rose Touch and Coffee Lite.

Lakme 9 to 5 weightless mousse
Love the formulation. It’s so light yet highly pigmented.

Both the shades are MLBB (My lips but better), perfect everyday colors.
The application is smooth, they don’t dry out your lips, the staying power is pretty good (will survive a drink, but not a meal). For the price, they are great quality.

Price – 575/-

4. Bath and Body Works Ultra Shea Body Cream

I have the variant – Sensual Amber. And perfect to its name, it is super sensual.
Has a rich creamy texture which gets absorbed into the skin in a jiffy. It leaves your skin soft without feeling greasy. Even though it is a creamy consistency, it is perfect for summers.

Pamper yourself with this the goodness of this cream

Richly moisturizing, and an amazing fragrance that lingers on, what else can you ask for? It was a gift by a dear friend, so don’t know the price!

5. The Body Shop British Rose Hand Cream

If you have Sahara Desert hands just like me, then this pleasant smelling hand cream will become your best friend. The consistency is a tad bit runny, but it gets absorbed instantly without leaving your hands greasy or sticky.

The Body Shop
The fragrance 🙂
The feel 🙂

It is moisturizing and keeps your hands soft. The fragrance is the real star. And the best part is that it lingers on for quite long.

Price – 375/-
