The liquid lipstick craze is getting stronger by the day with brands coming up with new launches, new formulas and new packaging practically every month. By now you must have known what a big fan I am of matte liquid lipsticks hence when the Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip range launched, I was obviously intrigued. Interesting packaging, beautiful colors and the name Bobbi Brown. What set me back was the price. In India, these are available for Rs 2600 ($28.00) and even for a die-hard liquid lipstick fan, a bit too much. I was going back and forth over whether I should buy one or not when my friend M turned into a lipstick fairy and gave me the shade Papaya as a gift. Read on to know what I think of this new launch.
MAC is out with bunch of new products in July. I shared with you the review of Hot Chocolate, one of the lipsticks from the Vibe Tribe collection. Another collection that is now in stores is Transformed and it includes six new shades of the Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks and Huggable Lipsticks. I was not really planning on buying anything from the collection but I saw a friend of mine wearing this beautiful bright red and I had to get it. The shade was MAC Red Jade, a new Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick priced at Rs 1800.
After reading so many reviews, watching videos and hearing my friend rave about them, I finally jumped on the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick bandwagon. I got three shades – Gemini, Celebrity Skin and the latest, Rich Blood. The lipsticks are priced at $18 and available at jeffreestarcosmetics.com. They ship to India and no, I have not paid customs for these.
Do you remember a segment on KBC called Fastest Finger First? Keep that in mind when trying to get one of these. The lipsticks are always sold out on the website and when Jeffree does a restock, women all over the world go CRAZY. They are all gone in less than 5 minutes but thankfully, I have Shikha aka Sorelle Grapevine by my side and she has never come back empty handed! Respect!
Something strange has happened to me. All these years I have steered clear of anything shiny, shimmery or glittery on my lips. Mattes have been an all time favorite but things are slowly changing. Or maybe it is just a phase who knows but I see myself getting drawn towards shimmer lip colors! When I went to the L’Oreal counter to check out the new Infallible Mega Gloss range, I did not even look at the cream finish glosses! My eyes were stuck on the Dazzle range and I picked up a beautiful glittery dark purple berry shade called Gloss Me I’m Gorgeous. The Infallible Mega Gloss range is part of L’Oreal’s Cannes 2016 collection and priced at Rs 850 each (Please learn from them Revlon!)
ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips is a new range of liquid lipsticks launched recently and I love this formula! They are very pigmented, set to a comfortable satin/matte finish and do not dry out lips. The only issue with the Ultra Satins is that they transfer. As ColourPop puts it, the colors “kiss and tell”. They don’t go all over the place but yes, if you’ve had a very heavy meal, then do take a mirror out and check your face once!
