MAC collaborated with three makeup artists – Diane Kendal, James Kaliardos, and Kabuki to create colour collections reflecting each artist’s signature style. MAC Kabuki Magic Spring/Summer 2017 is now available in India and from the collection, I have two retro matte lip colours to show you. Presenting Fallen Angel, a deep berry and Flamingo Road, a purple magenta. They are priced at Rs 1850 each and available in stores and on Nykaa.
Colorbar recently launched a bunch of new products and one of them is the Lip Prime and Care. This is basically a primer for the lips that also works as a lip balm. The other lip primer that I know of is the MAC Prep + Prime Lip and I have read mixed reviews about that product. Some people love it while some say that it does not do anything. I have not tried the MAC one so cannot share my thoughts on it. I’ve tried the Colorbar Lip Prime and Care and that is what this post is all about. What do I think of it? Read on to find out 🙂
About Colorbar Lip Prime and Care
As a primer : This unique, creamy formulation is like Shadow Insurance for your lips. It’s applied over the lips to promote suppleness and glides on smooth for maximum staying power. Your glosses and lip color will not feather or fade, even under the most lip-challenging conditions. The vitamin-E-enriched formula pampers lips while unique pigment binders protect lip colors from any pout imperfections. Can also be applied as lip primer under Kiss proof formulas to make it more smooth and chip resistant
As a Lip Balm: This ultra-hydrating lip treatment corrects and conditions lips for a smooth, youthful-looking finish. It is scientifically proven to nourish and repair the lips—significantly boosting moisture, enhancing volume, and improving the definition of the lip area. It is fortified with a high concentration of ultra-nourishing, age-delaying ingredients including Vit C to penetrate the skin, fill in wrinkles, and plump the appearance of lips.
Price: Rs 700 (2.5 gm)
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that MAC Cosmetics is finally available at Nykaa. The concerns I had after hearing the news was whether 1) the prices would be the same as in the stores and 2) if they would have the same collection and not a capsule one. I am happy to say yes to both and in fact, online they are actually launching products that have not hit the stores yet. I am talking about the twelve new MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick shades that are part of the Spring 2017 collection. These are as of now only available at Nykaa and I picked up two of them – Topped With Brandy and Chocotease. The liquid lipsticks are priced at Rs 1850 each.

Lakmé launched a bunch of new makeup as part of their Illuminate and Shine collection in collaboration with Sabyasachi. In this post, I wrote about the bronzer, highlighter, shimmer brick and liquid liners. In today’s post, I will share my views on the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palettes Royal Persia and French Rosé. Lakmé launched two palettes earlier in the year and I was not too impressed with the pigmentation or staying power. With Royal Persia and French Rosé, I was hoping that those issues will be addressed. Are these better? Read on to find out…
