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.
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.
When I went to Mumbai late October to attend the Pond’s event, I was told by the Lakme team about a new launch from the brand that they were all very excited about. I didn’t get too many details except for the fact that it would be the Lakme’s first lip and cheek color. Mention lip color to me and my interest level immediately shoots up so I was definitely curious to know what’s coming. One week later, I got the deets. They were talking about the new Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color. I was sent three shades to try out – Blush Velvet, Burgundy Lush and Pink Plush. Read on to know more…
About Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color
The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color is the brand’s first ever lip and cheek product in a light weight liquid mousse texture that comes in 10 intense and vibrant shades. It is easy to use, easily blends, and has a great colour payoff. All the shades leave a beautiful dewy tint on the cheeks and gives the lips an opaque matte finish that won’t budge throughout the day. Use the soft applicator tip for speedy application and for creating a defined look without looking ‘over done’.
Price – Rs 575
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!
