CoverGirl Lipstick 300 Garnet Flame Packaging

Just as its name this lipstick has a creamy matte texture. Unlike matte lipsticks, this does not dry lips and is very forgiving. Due to its creamy texture, it glides on lips smoothly without any tugging.

MAC Dangerous lipstick swatches retro matte

It’s a bright orange lipstick with strong orange-red undertones in it. I have seen similar shade worn by Kareena, Deepika many times. The thing with oranges is that they either look too bright or wash you out but this one is for keeps.

The application is smooth and one feels it is creamy while applying it but with time it starts getting dry and bit flaky. It does need a lip balm underneath to avoid the problem.

Price: 299 INR for 3.6 gms


It is a true Fuchsia shade nothing so dull or nothing OTT.


The lipstick has a very soft, creamy and smooth texture. This shade is without any shimmer and has a glossy finish to it. It gives even and opaque coverage in two swipes. The lipstick stays for 3-4 hours with little snacking and a full meal will definitely call for a touch-up.

Lipstick Pink Review

Price: 6$ for 4.5 gms

NYX describes sweet pink as a Violet Fuchsia shade. The description is very apt; Sweet Pink is a cool toned blue based fuchsia pink shade which looks amazing and I suppose will flatter all skin tones

This lipstick is from the matte category by NYX. The lipstick glides on like a creamy lipstick, very easy on lips without any tugging or pulling and then settles to a matte finish.

The pigmentation, however, is the USP of this lipstick which gives you a perfect look and for which you would agree to take up the effort of reapplication.

colorbar cherry ice lipstick

Price: 475 INR for 4.2 gms

It is a cooled toned deep cherry shade with cool nude undertones. The shade is light on swatching once but it tends to get intense with two swipes and then it really looks beautiful.

The texture is dry and matte without any shimmer. The shade will suit all complexions equally well. It is not a unique kind of shade and you will easily get shades like these in any other matte lipstick range.


colorbar nude coral lipstick creme touch

colorbar creme touch lipstick nude coral swatches

It is such a fabulous brownish coral shade. This shade that can be worn to the office making it a big pro. It is good to have a lipstick that can transform itself from day to night in an instant.

Once worn the glossy shine is very apparent and the lipstick stays on for at least 5-6 hours at a stretch. On closer inspection, the shade is coral brown where coral is more prominent but again that depends on how pigmented your lips are.  The more pigmented, the less coral and vice versa.

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Lipstick Always Apricot

Price: 999 INR for 2.5 gms

The shade is a pure apricot orange colour. A deep orange shade which can be used for daily wear as well as for parties or special occasions. This shade will suit beauties from fair to dusky skin tones but won’t flatter very deep skin beauties.

The creamy moisturising texture of the lipstick sets beautifully without settling into fine lines or bleeding out. After an hour or so this shade is just kissable.

Price:475 INR for 3.9 gms


This shade is a pretty warm toned pink colour with a very prominent violet undertone as per the name. The name is bang on!

It doesn’t crease and the pigmentation of the shade is really good. The lips certainly look good once you apply the colour. A single swipe gives a nice colour while two swipes are more than enough for the right violet pink colour.

lipstick blush crush packaging

Price: 900 INR for 6.5 ml

Blush Crush is a very beautiful blue based deep pink shade. The shade will certainly flatter most Indian skin tones.

The pigmentation is fabulous, just a single swipe and it goes opaque on the lips giving them a fabulous colour. The texture and finish of this are quite unique and not exactly like that of a stain. It has a lip creme kind of texture and later sets to an absolute matte finish. It sets to a powder matte finish and leaves no strong stain behind.
