Love raised me lipstick saved me

I am sure all of already guessed what this post is about but I will say it anyway - Lip colors.

I bet that any (may be most) girl will not leave her house without taking care of her lips be it in the form of lip balms, chapsticks, lip crayon, lipstick or lip gloss (the list goes on).

I am super excited to write this post and share some of my go to lip products for every mood and occasion. I am more of a matte person and less of a gloss person so you will see mostly lip crayons and sticks through this post.

Warning: This is a long post :)

As there are quiet a few products I have categorized them based on brands. A few of the brands are commonly available in India and few of them are not. I've included online purchase links where I could.


A little pink makes me happy. The two lipsticks from L'oreal that are from my go to list are 

Color Riche Moist Matte Raspberry Syrup R517
This is my absolute favorite and I use it 5/7 times every week. I absolutely love the shade and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a bold matte pink. It stays for 8-9 hours and it keeps your lips moisturized too. I apply this lipstick in the morning and voila I am done. I do not need anything else for the day. It has the perfect matte finish and needs just one stroke for that perfect look.

It is priced at Rs. 899/- and is available across most beauty stores in India.
Currently Out of Stock on Jabong.

Color Riche Lip color, Vagabond Mauve 550
This is a slightly lighter shade but it just glides on your skin. There is absolutely no need to moisturize your lips before application. This is apt for people who not very comfortable with brighter shades or for a casual summer morning. It is highly pigmented too, 1 stroke is enough to see the deepest shade.



I have 5 Revlon products to review. All the Revlon fans, read-on

Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick, Sandalwood Beige 240

This shade is perfect for people who are not a fan of pinks/reds. It is subtle and is very much suitable for normal wheatish complexion and is perfect for a formal outing. As the name suggests it moisturizes the lips and there is no need to use a balm before. It stays for about 2-3 hours and you will need to apply it 3-4 times in a day.

Colorburst Lip Butter, Tutti Frutti 015

The packing of this lipstick is made of plastic and is not very strong. It is highly moisturizing. When you apply a single stroke of it doesn't really show and color on your lips and it more like using a chapstick. It gives a light orange tinge to your lips when applied multiple times. It stays for 2-3 hours on your lips.

Colorburst Lacquer Balm, Provocateur Femme Fatale 135

This is a very attractive looking lip crayon which looks like a shade of maroon when you apply on your lips. It has a minty taste and stays slightly longer than the other Revlon lipsticks in this review.

Super Lustrous SPF 15, Coral Reef 170 & Super Lustrous SPF 15, Pink Pop 180

Both these need to be applied over a lipstick with pink/orange tinge. When applied directly they just bring out the shine. They feel sticky and hence need to be applied very carefully to avoid going beyond your lip line.



Colorsensational Pink Alert POW4

This lipstick is one of my least favorite because of its texture. It is a neon pink shade but it becomes cacky and is very thick when you apply on your skin directly and when you apply it on your lips after moisturizing them then the shade is slightly different. I like the original shade better. It is very bright and trendy. It stay on for about 4-5 hours and has good pigmentation (not the best).
I got this lipstick online (I guess I purchased it from Jabong) and I haven't used any other shade from this range so I am not sure if all of them from this family are similar. 

Colorsensational Bold Matter MAT4

This lipstick on the other had is super lustrous and just glides on your lips. It is not very pigmented and you need apply it a couple of times to get the full color. It is a bright red and was my go to red lipsticks for quiet sometime. It stay on for 4-5 hours too and it a must have in your beauty collection.



All the 3 shades that I am going to review here are subtle shades from the Lip Smacking Fun Colors Range are a perfect for any other who doesn't prefer bright colors.  

These are mainly shades of brown and will make you look extremely pretty if you have a fairer complexion. I would recommend trying them before you buy. They last for 4-5 hours and moisturize you lips enough.
Creon 535
Topaz 570'
Mauve 557


Wet n Wild

Megalast Lipstick , Sugar Plum Fairy 908C

If you have a long busy schedule ahead and won't have time for touch-ups and want to look like you did in the morning then I would recommend to try lipsticks from the megalast range. Like the name "Megalast" this lipstick lasts through the day (atleast 7-8 hours). It is the perfect plum and perfect matte shade. I am totally in love with it.

Megalast Lipstick , Smokin' Hot Pink 905D

Another perfect lipstick from the megalast range. This is the perfect pink not to bright and not too subtle. Just love how it looks on your lips. It another must have from this range.

Fergie perfect pout lip color, Old School Glam A037

A long-lasting bright red slightly balmy to keep your lips moisturized. This stays for atleast 8 hours and doesn't smudge after your meals too.
