What I love the most about my job is the fact that I get to try some gorgeous new products sometimes from my favorite brands and sometimes from newer ones. It’s a great way to dive in and explore the beauty world…
Last week my mailbox welcomed some new lipsticks from L’Oréal and it was such a delight to swatch and explore them!
L’Oréal no doubt has been a trusted beauty brand since the longest time and has been quite innovative with their range and formulas.
Talking of the rouge signature lipsticks, I have been obsessed since then!! Read on and you’ll know why.
Exactly how I like it! Love the fact that the application brush comes with a precision tip that conveniently lets you skip an additional step of using a lip liner, giving you a crisp sharp edgy finish. Not only that, it also has a well in the center that collects excess product.
Unlike other liquid lipsticks, that go on liquidy and dry up to a super matte formula that makes your lips feel like they are packed in plaster, this one has a very light-weight formula, feels like you are putting on water literally!! And dries down to some what non-transferable matte finish that looks slightly glossy… if that makes any sense..

Lipsticks and me, you can call us indispensable… though I like lipsticks in every texture, matte, creamy, satin.. but there is something about liquid lipsticks that places it a step above the rest. I have been trying the Ever liquid lipsticks from WE makeup lately and shared the swatches on my Instagram… you all clearly loved them!! Read on for a detailed review…
EVER Liquid lipsticks come in 46 shades ranging from nudes to bolds and metallics. If you go to their website, you’ll see how beautifully they have shared the swatches for every shade on various skin tones, making it easy for you to pick your shades.
Texture & Quality
Jumping straight into the quality and texture which is the most important factor for a liquid lipstick! To start with, the lipstick is quite liquidy which glides on smoothly and evenly giving a non-patchy finish which I really love because sometimes if the texture is thick, the application tends to be patchy.
These lipsticks come with a slightly curved applicator which sits comfortably on the lips hence aiding a perfect application. My personal favorite applicators are the ones which are pointed at the tip, but this one does the job quite well.
The formula is rich in pigmentation and gives a completely matte finish. Love the full coverage it gives in just one swipe!
Overall, these feel quite comfortable on the lips. They do not feel too drying or sticky.
The best part about liquid lipsticks is the wear time! These stay on for good 6-8 hours and do not really come off on eating and drinking (though it does wear off slightly from the center but it isn’t much noticeable or annoying)… Which means you can rely on them while heading out and need not worry about touch-ups!
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.
I am totally in love with organic products. When I first learned that Kiss me Honey makes organic lip balms which are chemical free and contains nourishing ingredients such as organic beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, vitamin E oil, almond oil, it definitely sounded a hit. I have been trying these for a few weeks now and here is what I think.
Thank God these do not come in tub packaging! I love the cute black and hot pink stick case these come in, definitely reduces the risk of contamination, unlike the tub packaging.
When talking of quality, nothing can beat purity. The fact that these are chemical free and made of all organic ingredients immediately gives a sense of trust. They have organic flavors added which is absolutely NOT over-empowering like most of the other lip balms.
What I like most about this product is that on application it does not leave a shiny glossy look, it looks and feels very light and natural which makes it absolutely suitable for use by men and children. The mild scent makes it a very comfortable wear even for those who prefer non-scented products. Apart from that, the variety of flavors makes it really exciting.
I have tried this lip balm on dry lips and it did heal in the very first go itself. It keeps your lips hydrated for about 4 hours after which you may need to re-apply. I also like to use this beneath my lipstick for added moisturization all day.
KIKO MILANO completed their 20 years of beauty in 2017, that is such a big milestone to achieve! It launched in India in 2016 and is spreading globally. I got gorgeous lipsticks and nail polishes from KIKO, which are worth sharing. I haven’t tried any of their products till now, extremely excited to try these on. I will be sharing a review soon.
Makeup is a great way to unleash your creativity. I like to experiment and play with my makeup. This blog is depicting how to use your lipstick creatively and make it wearable for every occasion. A red lipstick which is often mistaken to be restricted to parties or weddings can surprisingly also be your best mate for a no makeup look. You can find out how in the video below.
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.
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.
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.
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…
