It was the night of the Emmy Awards and Priyanka Chopra had just made her way to the red carpet. Wearing a Jason Wu red gown with sleek side parted hair, she twirled, posed and smiled for the cameras and the world went gaga over her. I went gaga over her too. Over her red lip. Was it Nars? Was it MAC? Was it Lancôme? I was desperate to find out which lip color she was wearing that night. Next morning, it was all over the internet. The shade was Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Matte Lipstick Rouge Charnel. And I was desperate to get it for myself!
Maybelline New York is on a roll. They launched the Fit Me range and the Hyper Matte Liquid Liner last month. And now, we have two more new launches from them – Color Sensational Lip Gradation matte lip pencils in eight shades and Superstay Gel Nail Color in 24 shades. I was checking out the Lip Gradation pencils at Shoppers Stop, Salt Lake City Centre and picked up two shades – Mauve1 and Fuchsia1. Dunno what is with Maybelline giving such boring names to their lip colors though. These pretty things deserve much better!
So what are these Lip Gradation pencils?
Available in 8 bright, matte shades, this double-sided lip product will inspire you to experiment with your looks and bring out your unique style and personality. The color stick at one end will give a gorgeous pop of color while the cushion blender tool at the other end will give a sexy, graded look. Here’s why you will love it:
- 8 bright, matte shades – Red1, Red2, Fuchsia1, Mauve1, Orange1, Pink1, Pink2, Coral2
- Easy to apply
- Fun, flirty, versatile way to color your lips
- Innovative product with cutting edge technology
- Price: Rs. 500/-
If you have read this post, you will know how much I love Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution range of lipsticks. These look beautiful, have a lovely powder like texture, are lightweight, apply like a dream and do not dry out lips. After Amazing Grace, I had to get one more and this time, I chose a dark berry, Love Liberty ($32). Thanks Nabamita for getting this beauty to me :). If you want to purchase Charlotte Tilbury’s products, check out Nordstrom and Beautylish. Both ship to India.
There are matte lipsticks and there are Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipsticks. I have the shade Amazing Grace and believe you me, this matte lipstick is by far the best matte lipstick I have used till date and I have used quite a lot! Makeup Artist extraordinaire Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup range was launched last year and people have not stopped raving about her products. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some of these beauties for a while now but never did I imagine that I would get them so suddenly. One of my best friends from school who now lives in London visited Kolkata a couple of weeks back and knowing about my makeup addiction, got for me Amazing Grace and the Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette which I’ll show you later. Let’s talk about Amazing Grace today.
