I am loving bright-colored lipstick shades these days specially those with neon touch.These are super fun to wear and add a pop of color to face.However,I have learnt that in order to wear these shades and look perfect,one needs to have a perfect base.
Neon shades have a tendency to accentuate our undertone and evenness or darkness around the mouth.So,always remember to have a good base underneath if you want to flaunt the shade perfectly.
I have a few neon shades in my stack out of which I have these 4 that I wear the most.Here are the pics,swatches and mini review of each shade:
- Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick #12 Rose Neon (Rs 995 for 3.5 gm ): Rose Neon is a gorgeous Barbie pink shade-a bubble-gum pink with slight blue undertones. I would not call it neon in the truest sense. Just that it is more brighter shade of light pink .It is devoid of any shimmer.
The lipstick feels comfortable on lips even after 3-4 swipes but I feel that too much application leads to formation of slight lines if lips are pressed. It doesn’t settle in the lip lines.The formula is amazing and mositurisng. It doesn’t accentuate flaky skin neither dries out my lips after it wears off. I love the glossy finish and the way it makes my lips appear full.
- Loreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick Cheeky Magenta(rs.499 for 2.5gms):Cheeky Magenta is a very girly light magenta pink with cool undertones.It is such a Barbie doll shade.The shade does have slight blue undertones but it’s not very prominent.
Cheeky Magenta is very glossy and hydrating.It stays for about 2 hours on my lips but doesn’t leave any stain behind.It can be used sheerly as well as for full coverage.
- Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick Fraise Remix (Rs. 995 for 3.5 gm) :The lipstick is a stunning shade of coral with red-pink tones. It has slight neon effect in it which isn’t overpowering. The lip colour is sans any shimmer or sheen.
The lipstick has a creamy texture. It feels soft and glides on smoothly. The formula is light weight and moisturising but it isn’t very much hydrating.It provides glossy finish to lips which settles to matte finish after 2-3 hours.
- Face It Artist Touch Lipstick RD301 (8.99$ for 3.5gms):The shade is a gorgeous coral pink with creamy finish.It is sans any shimmer or sheen.Pure delight!!
The texture of the lipstick is really smooth and it glides on easily.It applies evenly and doesn’t bleed.The formula is light weight and feels comfortable on lips.The finish is rightly described as creamy matte.It is non-drying though not very hydrating.The shade doesn’t settle in the lips lines neither accentuate them.It stays for about 4-5 hours on my lips leaving a mild pinky coral stain which looks really pretty.
