How to rock “Mysterious Mocha”

Mysterious Mocha

I am not a very big fan of “Brown” Lipsticks!

I do have quite a few nude beigish-pinkish-brown lipsticks and glosses but a pure “Brown” is not what I prefer. I am more of a “pink-peach” Lover.

For a change I did bring in “Mysterious Mocha”, a creamy matte lipstick from Maybelline (I have reviewed this range here) and well I was quite impressed! Though still not a very big fan! Brown, somehow I feel makes you look dull. In order to prevent myself from looking dull and boring, I wore this pretty mocha shade with a neutral eye-shadow, thick black eye-liner and not-so-heavy face make-up, and I quite liked it. I think the look can be carried off quite well for day or night outings.

If you too are not very fond of a “brown” lipstick but want to wear it and are not sure how to carry it, this can give you a few ideas.

Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks – Review

Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks

Hi Everyone,

Maybelline has recently launched a new range of creamy matte lipsticks in 20 shades, tough I have come across only 12 of them! I personally prefer matte lipsticks as they are long lasting. But the only reason I ever give it a miss, is how dry and sometimes even patchy it feels during and after application. I picked 4 shades:

1. Peach Personality – It’s a nude orangy peach lipcolor perfect for day or office wear. I have noticed this shade turning slightly patchy, but works well if you apply it with a brush or just rub it slightly with a finger. You can see me wearing it here.

2. Lively Violet – This one is a soft mauve, a shade I have never worn before.

3. Rock the Coral – A bright coral which I often wear during dinners and parties, Its highly pigmented, lasts really long but one thing disappointing about this shade is that it changes color to a bright magenta pink after a few hours! You can see me wearing it here.

4. Mysterious Mocha – A soft brown, browns I usually don’t wear, this is by first buy!

Here is my take on the product:

Packaging

It comes in a matte black hard plastic case with a strip of color.

Texture

The lipstick feels extremely smooth, silky and creamy during and after application. And the look is rich matte. Ever since I have started using this creamy matte range, I have quit using my other matte lipsticks!

Color Stay

The color stays easily for 8 hours, I don’t have to give it a touch up every now and then.

Fruity Fragrance

All the shades come with a soft fruity fragrance which makes you want more of it. I absolutely love the soft scent which lasts for about 30 minutes even after the application.

Price

Rs 325/-

Maybelline is always so pocket friendly!!

Rating

4.25/5 (Highly Recommended for Matte Lipstick lovers)

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

1. Slight patchy look in the shade peach personality

2. Its prabably too soft and fragile, 2 of the 4 lipsticks already broke (got separated from the base, but still very much in a usable condition) inspite of my careful handling!

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Review

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict

Hi Everyone,

I have been contemplating a lot over the lakme absolute gloss addict lipsticks, finally purchased 3 of them.

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict

1. Dessert Rose

2. Coral Lustre

3. Bare Beige

Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict

All three shades fall in the nude category. Perfect for everyday wear and if you master the art of smoky eyes, these three shades can be your best friends!!

Desert Rose is a pinkish peachish shade, rather more on the pinkish side.

Coral lustre where as is a perfectly peachy orangy shade.

And Bare beige is the beige of my dreams!! Exactly what I have always been looking for!! I have created a look with this shade HERE.

I will soon create a look with each one of them and post.

Product Review

Packaging It comes in classy metallic case with a transparent cap. Which helps u pick the shade of the day at one go! Absolutely convenient… Apart from this, I noticed something different here, which not many lipstick cases are equipped with; and that is a “locking mechanism” which ensures proper opening and closing of the lipsticks, saves you from the frights where you accidentally put the cap thinking you have twisted your lipstick quite enough while it still remains open…smashing it completely.. Yikess

Quality I would like to go ahead and give it the honour of being one of the best texture ever!! It has a luxurious feel, feels as smooth as a warm knife passing through soft butter. I am still so obsessed by the way it feels that I can’t stop myself from reapplying it time and again. Thumbs up for that!

Color Payoff The color stays for about 3 -4 hours, initially when you apply it, its glossy as the name suggests, but after about 2 -3 hours, its glossiness decreases and leaves a tint behind.

Price Rs. 800/-

Availability Everywhere!! Cosmetic stores, online…

Rating 4/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5

1. The price is a little on the higher side.

2. The shades are very limited.
