Oriflame Lip Sensation Matte Mousse Collection – 7 Lip Color Swatches

 

Oriflame Lip Sensation Matte Mousse Collection is the newest launch by the brand. It is officially yet to be available for everyone to buy, so I am definitely over the moon to be among the first few who got this chance at trying out these!

This collection has a total of 10 lip colors and each one of it is gorgeous. They come in simple yet transparent tube packing, which makes it convenient to pick when stacked or stored.

 

Here’s what Oriflame Lip Sensation Matte Mousse Collection claims –

These are light-as-air liquid lipsticks with a smooth, velvety finish in 10 stunning full-coverage shades that go the distance. They are infused with comforting and conditioning ingredients so lips stay quenched all day.

**Guaranteed to cause lip envy**

 

Here I have swatched 7 of these colors for you –

Soft and Neutrals – Satin Rose, & Soft Mulberry (L-R)

These are the first two colors that got me totally excited (until I swatched Rouge Suede). They on their own are pretty colors and can be easily worn during the day time including to the office.

However, I loved cocktailing these two colors and the result is just mind blowing! These two gel with each other extremely well and give out a soft muted rose color which I totally love.

If you are into softer colors lately (like me) these two are the ones you should look for!

 

Pinks and Corals – Pink Velour, Coral Dream, & Raspberry Cloud (L-R)

As much as I want to save these for Spring/Summer, I don’t think I can resist these for that long. Raspberry Cloud is my favorite here. It is a rich and intense raspberry pink which almost passes off as Fuchsia. I think it straddles the line between the two and I for sure can’t make out which one I should term it as. Whatever it is, this is one of the gorgeous shades I have tried recently.

While Pink Velour certainly did wash me off a bit, a mix of this one along with another rich color seems to be working the trick. You know how much I love cocktailing the lip colors!

Coral Dream is one am quite curious about. I am hoping to experiment with this one a lot in coming days. So keep an eye!

 

Reds – Rouge Suede & Red Velvet (L – R)

It’s been a while since I last worn anything Red on my lips. So believe me when I say, I am in love with Rouge Suede. It is a rich and an intense color and yet soft on the eyes. It’s not too much into the face and yet it is one of the statement lip colors I have got so far.

This color is perfect for all those date nights with your loved one, Christmas, and New Year Eve parties and of course the much awaited Valentine’s too.

On the other hand, Red Velvet, I think is more suited for the daytime. It’s a rich color with strong undertones of pink. It is not the usual Reds I have worn before and anything Pink suits me more than any other color. So I am quite excited to try this as well!

 

Overall, the formula is intense, creamy and rich; so you will definitely need a mirror to apply any of these. Luckily most of these shades are rich and intense enough in color, so you need not layer to pack more of the color. The less the better!

I really liked when I applied the colors and patted down with a tissue or finger to make them less intense and look softer. All the colors lasted really well throughout the day and my favorite are Rouge Suede followed by Soft Mulberry.

 The creamy formula is gorgeous and it is more hydrating than any other mattes I have tried recently. Also, these Matte Mousse colors are neither glossy nor shiny which makes them a perfect choice for this season.

That said, there are 3 more shades which I am yet to try – Toffee Cream, Plush Peach, and Boysenberry. While am excited about Toffee cream, which is again a neutral color, am very curious to see how Boysenberry swatches. I tend to deviate more towards the fancy names and this one totally got my attention!

 

So those were the swatches of 7 colors from the Oriflame Lip Sensation Matte Mousse Collection. What all shades made into your wish list?

Colorbar Cocktail 3D Matte Lip Color is the recent collection by Colorbar Cosmetics. A limited edition, this collection claims to be the Revolutionary 3D Matte lip colors.

These Super-creamy, non-drying matte formula lip colors come in 4 dreamy exotic colors. Drawing inspiration from the much revelling magical cocktails of all times, the “cocktail” collection by Colorbar mixes beauty with intoxication.

Colorbar Cocktail 3D Matte Lip Color

Here’s what it claims –

3D Matte Lipstick, a Revolutionary 3D Matte lip color is a super-creamy, non-drying matte formula, to make lips look & feel amazing.
It features their proprietary “flex-form” complex, for lips that make it appear immediately reshaped, smooth and homogeneous with insane pigmentation and superior color dispersion.
The trim-line-style component supports the soft, creamy matte formula and prevents breakage, yet still provides full-lip coverage in a single swipe.

 

Colorbar Cocktail 3D Matte Lip Color Collection Features –

  • Extra Hold 3D matte formula
  • Full-color Payoff in one stroke
  • Light weight on application
  • Comforting oils to provide conditioning
  • Color does not bleed on lips

  • Dermatologically tested

Price – 750  ₹

Buy – Habbana.com

Here’s the Swatches –

Here’s what I love about this Collection –

  1. It is free of lanolin, mineral oil, and paraben
  2. It is not tested on animals
  3. It gives an amazing color payoff in single stroke of application
  4. It is a light formula and color stays put for a long time
  5. It is enriched with oils that make it perfect even for chapped lips

 

Here’s what I do not love –

  1. It has only 4 shades to choose from

 

While all the colors seem to be pretty rich and vibrant, it is certainly unfortunate that they have come up with just 4 shades.

On a side note, putting aside the price, I love the shade. I am cocktailing the colors at the moment and I can see myself wearing this often mixed with other colors to suit my mood.

 

Have you tried any shade from this collection yet? Which one is your favorite?

Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick

Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick Collection has some of the fabulous shades for the Fall/Winter season. Besides the iconic gold casing, these lipsticks have a fabulous formula too. They are creamy to apply and settle into a nice satiny finish which is wonderful as it is winter. And since I own quite a lot of matte shades at the moment, this collection is definitely like a breath of fresh air to me.

If you have been following me on Instagram, you already know how much I love these!

And am here today, to show you these 4 shades from this collection –

Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick Collection –

  1. Rose Petal
  2. Muted Plum
  3. Fuchsia Divine
  4. Raspberry Blush

All the shades have one distinctive feature – satiny formula. They glide on super smooth and do not feather. Since they are argan oil infused, they keep the lips soft and supple long after the application too. The colors are quite buildable and leave a beautiful tint behind.

 

Don’t like the satiny shiny finish?

Just apply and dab the color with the finger all over lips to set it to a semi-satiny finish

 

Here’s what I love most about this collection –

  • Has SPF 15
  • Is infused with argan oil
  • Have a creamy formula that settles into satiny finish
  • Color is quite buildable
  • Luxe packing
  • Leaves a beautiful tint behind

Price – 799 ₹

 

However, the colors are relatively sheer too, show tiny specks of glitter and scent seems strong when you build up layers to pack in more color. While these are definitely not bothersome, I wish they were without these.

 

If at all I am very concerned is that the color at times settle in fine lines and accentuate the chapped lips, if you have any.

 

But luckily, a little dabbing with the fingertips after application or use a lip scrub prior to applying seems to help.

 

Overall, a great collection and I definitely don’t mind trying out the other shades from the Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick Collection and with that price, they are definitely stocking! They also make a great choice to gift this holiday season.

SUGAR It's A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick

After the Fade Proof Kajal and Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Lipsticks, Sugar Cosmetics is back with another new launch – SUGAR It’s A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick.

Just in time for SS16, their latest launch has four new shades that are season perfect!

Here are the shades from this collection –

01 The Big Bang Berry (Wine)

02 Breaking Bare (Rose Pink)

03 Mad Magenta (Magenta)

04 Coraline in the City (Orange-Coral)

 

The official launch of these lipsticks is due this month end or so, but lucky me, I have been sent the shade Mad Magenta to try and test it before hand and share my thoughts with you.

SUGAR It's A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick

SUGAR It's A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick

Here’s what I love –

  • Its creamy formula glides smoothly and settles down to a Matte finish
  • The color is quite buildable
  • Well prepped, the lipstick survives a heavy meal and coffee too
  • Use as is, lipstick fades slowly leaving a faint tint behind.
  • Nevetheless, it stays for an average of 4-5 hrs.
  • Doesn’t feather or bleed
  • Free from mineral oil, D5, parabens & nano-ingredients

SUGAR It's A-Pout Time! Vivid Lipstick

End of the day – Faint tint the lipstick left behind

On a side note, the lipstick case however has sharp edges and like you can see its way too simple. While one may find it annoying or uncomfortable, I love lipsticks that stand out with their casing. So for me this is definitely love at first sight.

And as usual, like their signature style; the lipstick case is in simple black and very minimalistic in styling too. However, there are no signs of any shade color of the lipstick on the case; which for me is a complete NO. I don’t prefer to open and check the shade every time.

 

Price – ₹ 599

 

Buy – http://www.sugarcosmetics.com/products/its-a-pout-time-vivid-lipstick

 

And incase you are interested, here’s how I prepped my lips –

  1. Apply lip conditioner and let it settle for few mins
  2. Wipe it off clean and use a similar and/or matching lip liner to outline and fill the lips
  3. Apply the lipstick and build as much color is needed
  4. Blot and re-apply

 

That said, I kind of liked this new lipstick. Also, I am very curious as how the Breaking Bare shade is as I simply loved the Holly Go Lightly shade from their Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Lipstick collection.

Over all, a great buy if you are interested; luckily these are not priced too high!

 

 

So which shade is on your *Wish List* now?

5 simple tips to keep the Lipstick long-lasting + 1 to avoid!

Beauty

New Year is almost here and if there’s one thing common that’s on everyone’s mind right now is on how to look absolutely fabulous for the NYE party! While we are on that topic, I hope that’s one thing you figured out by now. The right dress makes or mars the complete look. And if you didn’t yet, just in case; pick out the perfect fitting dress from your closet and spice it up with right fashion accessories and statement pieces. And if you are someone who’s not a hoarder of fashion pieces, take my cue and spruce up your makeup and be the total stand out!

Smokey eyes are your thing? Play with it and put on the best lipstick to compliment the look or simply go bold with lipstick and minimalist with eye makeup. Either ways lipstick is one thing to play with for the perfect party look. And when it comes to lipstick, one thing that comes to mind is *How to keep the Lipstick Long-lasting?*. Well, this one my dear; I got you covered!

Here are 5 simple tips that can get your pout super kissable and the lipstick long lasting –

Lip Scrub –

Lip scrub helps to keep the lips soft and supple, allowing the lipstick to stay longer without feathering. Prep lips with balm and then give a scrub. Lips will be super smooth and the lipstick application will be flawless!

Lip Moisturizer –

Lip moisturizer a.k.a lip balm saves a lot of time from frequent touch-ups during the party and keeps the lipcolor intact all night long.

Just dab on generously, give 5-10 mins and scrub it away to reveal soft and kissable lips. This is the most important prep step for a long lasting lip color and super kissable lips.

May I suggest ?

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow are wonderful choices. They not only act as lip balm but also leave a faint tint of color giving the lipstick a layer and/or a base to adhere to!

Lip Primer –

One of the most ignored step and no you are not alone in this!

Lip color needs to adhere to something to stay long lasting than just the lip skin. Using a primer also makes the lip color to show its true color. That’s a win-win. No?

Lip Pencil –

Prepping up the lips with the lip pencil from the similar color family like the lipstick adds another layer to the lips and allows the Lipstick to long-last all night.

Lip Color –

Lipsticks with matte formulas tend to stay longer than others, followed by cream and liquid formulas. Opt for your favorite color in the desired formula and make sure it’s fail proof!

May I Suggest ?

Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Crayon Lipsticks are matte and super long lasting too. My favorites are Holy Golightly, a peachy nude and Mary Poppins, a fuchsia pink.

Check out – https://thelipstickaddict.com/beauty/sugar-cosmetics-matte-as-hell-crayon-lipstick-in-mary-poppins/

Avoid Gloss –

Unless the gloss leaves a stain behind which you are happy with and/or okay with frequent touch ups; stay away from gloss formulas. Period!

Hope your NYE party turns out to be a great beginning for another fabulous year for you!

See you next year!

Much Love
