4 Pink-Mauve Everyday Wear lipsticks-From High End To Budget Brands!!

I love wearing bold shades of corals,reds,pinks but we do need subtle shades for everyday wear.I have a few shades with me that can be used for subtle looks as well as for intense looks as these lip colors looks great when complemented with smoky looks.

Below I have listed 4 such shades of Pinks-Mauves that fit in different price range.

???????????????????????????????

1) Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick Rose XOXO(rs.990 for 3 gms):Rose xoxo is a beautiful pearly mauve pink with silver shimmer in it.It is sheer but buildable.

The lipstick is very hydrating. The formula provides glossy finish to lips and gel-like feel, is lightweight and doesn’t settle in the lip lines.The finish is semi-sheer.The shade is sheer but buildable to medium coverage with 2-3 swipes.However,it cannot provide full coverage as the shade is light.It stays for about 3-4 hours on my lips.

2)Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Lipstick-Sweet Pink(Rs.1720 for 3.5gms):Sweet Pink is really sweet indeed.It is a nude-brown pink shade.I really like this shade for it being subtle and not washing away from skin color at the same time.I love the classy packaging as well.

???????????????????????????????

The lipstick has a very soft and creamy formula providing semi-glossy finish that gives a healthy appearance to lips. It is very hydrating and moisturising.It feels lightweight and comfortable on lips.The shade is light and provides sheer to light amount of shade to lips.It is opaque in its own but being a lighter shade,it wont be able to cover lip pigmentation.Th is shade will mostly suit fair to wheatish complexion.Staying power is 4-5.5 hours.

3)Maybelline Watershine Pure Lipcolor B24(rs.230):B24 is a very pretty light baby pink with a tiniest hint of peach.It is more of a pink and looks really subtle on lips.My lips do feel watery when I apply this :p

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

The lipstick has more of a balmy formula.It is very smooth on texture and glides on easily.The formula is hydrating very moisturising.It is great for those with chapped lips.The shade being pink and having a balmy texture is quite sheer but buildable to medium pigmentation.It is a great shade for everyday wear and subtle looks.It stays for about 2 hours maximum which is quite low but the lips stay hydrated.

MAC Crème in your Coffee lipstick-review & swatches

My MLBB these days…..

???????????????????????????????

PRICE: Rs.990 for 3 grams

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:MAC describes Crème  in your Coffee as Creamy Mid tone Pink-Brown. I definitely agree with this as it is a warmer brown with slight pink tones.It will suit all skin tones and go well with Indian skin tone.

???????????????????????????????

MY VIEWS:The finish is Cremesheen. It is  highly pigmented and creamy in texture. It gives a beautiful glossy look . being Cremesheen, it melts in extreme hot weather.However,it doesn’t bleed on lips.It feels very comfortable and is definitely hydrating.

???????????????????????????????

The staying power is low as it has very creamy formula.However,it fades very evenly leaving lips nourished and soft.It stays for about 3-4 hours.Fragrance is standard vanilla that is soothing and pleasant.

Revlon Colorburst Rosy Nude and Maybelline colorsensational Crazy for coffee are two that I can think of right now.

 

Deborah Milano Rossetto Light Creator shine & volume lipstick-01 review & swatches

Deborah Milano has always been my favorite brand and I have tried everything from this brand.This range of lipsticks were the first ones that I bought and that made me a permanent fan of the brand.

???????????????????????????????

ABOUT: With its multi-performance formula, the new Shine Creator Lipstick brings together three proven properties: the shine of a lip gloss, the comfort of a lipstick and the hydration and protection of a lip balm.

Hypoallergenic**, SPF15.
** Formulated to minimise the risk of allergy.

PRICE:rs.560

PACKAGING:The packaging is cute with a metallic light pink asymmetrical outer covering and shade indicator and number at the bottom.The packaging is sturdy and closes securely with a click.

SHADE:Shade 01 is a silver shimmer based nude brown shade.

???????????????????????????????

MY VIEWS:The texture of the lipstick is smooth inspite having shimmer.The shimmer present is minute an dnon-gritty.It applies easily and has a creamy consistency.It has high shine formula and provides glossy finish to lips.This glossy finish leads to an illusion of fuller lips.

Staying power is quite low as it has a creamy texture and the shade itself is very light.I sometimes,find it hard to pull off has it accentuates yellow undertones of my skin. 01 stays for about 2-2 1/2 hours maximum.
