5 Everyday Affordable Lipsticks

7/10 women love lipsticks!! Undoubtedly, I belong to that category… Lately, I have had some great blog post ideas for you lipstick lovers, can’t wait to materialize! My previous blog on ‘Secret To Perfect Long Lasting Lipstick’ received much love and inspired me to post more such blogs on our real-life beauty concerns. Today’s blog is my top 5 recommendations on everyday lipsticks that are super affordable and really good quality. They can be comfortably worn for work or a casual outing. I have tried to cover creamy, semi-matte and matte textures because that’s what I like wearing more often. Omitting glosses this time, but you can always let me know if you’d like to know more.

Lip Balm for a Busy Winter Morning

Disclosure: This post is in collaboration with Kiss Me Honey, the products were sent to me by the brand, but my opinion on them is absolutely genuine and true.

Chapped lips, flaky skin, and dry cuticles are my winter dreads! Regular and timely moisturization is surely the key to happy skin during winters but it isn’t as simple as it sounds. A busy winter morning may not leave you with enough time for self-care, this is when I reach out for a lip balm for most of my skin concerns.

I use a lip balm not only to treat chapped lips but also as a quick fix for dry patches on the skin and sometimes also to prevent blisters from shoes. Now since a lip balm is one of my beauty must-haves, it has to be safe and effective.

Moodmatcher Lipsticks | Review

Disclosure: This post is in collaboration with MOODmatcher, the products were sent to me by the brand, but the review is absolutely genuine and true.

These lipsticks took me back in time, as a kid, I remember seeing green lipsticks which would turn pink on applying, also there used to be pretty clear glosses that would change color when applied. Back then, it used to be quite exciting to see the transition happening, well it’s still the same. MOODmatcher lipsticks are somewhat on the same lines, only better.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – OBSESSION | Review

Revlon ultra hd Obsession





A few months back, Revlon launched their liquid lipsticks, which claims to be lightweight and give high definition velvety matte color. Also this is said to be moisturizing with a unique gel formula. I was excited to try! I got the shade HD Obsession which is a bright, cool toned fuchsia pink. Here is a detailed review on this product.

Packaging

I love lipsticks having transparent packaging! It is so convenient to pick the shade you want to wear. I was quite impressed to see their packaging, it comes in a transparent matte bottle with a silver top, the applicator is a slight disappointment. It’s too firm… almost feels like you are applying the product with a stick. Little flexibility would have been good.

Quality and Texture

The product rightly claims to be lightweight and moisturizing. It glides on smoothly giving high pigmented color in 1-2 swipe. I love the creamy matte finish it gives as soon as you apply the product, which after an hour turns velvety matte. It sits comfortably on the skin. It also has a strong bubble gum scent to it, which I personally love. I don’t mind scented products, but if you do, this is not the right pick for you.

Wearability

It lasts very well for 6-7 hours, after which it starts to fade. But one can do a good 8 hour outing wearing this lipstick without worrying about touch up.

It does transfer very easily which is a downside, but as the creamy matte texture sets to a more velvety matte, the transferring decreases.

4/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

This liquid lipstick from revlon is close to perfection! Here are some points that pull it back a little…

  1. It transfers a lot.
  2. The applicator isn’t very comfortable to use
  3. It’s price is slightly on the higher side.
