Maybelline Baby Lips-Cherry Kiss review

27 Oct

Pucker Up Baby!

 

First, there was only Boroline, then came Vaseline lip guards in those little tubes and now we have them tinted, color changing, in a tub, tube, swiveling in and out to take care of our lips-they never had it so good πŸ™‚

So here’s the latest ‘baby’ for those who love to pamper their pout- Maybelline Baby Lips. I picked it up in the ‘shade’ Cherry Kiss. It comes in a twist up tube with a screw at the bottom which reminds me of Fevistick! And it is just as messy! It took me a while to get used to the ‘carefully twisting up and down’ process as I messed up with it and squashed the poor tube a couple of times.

Price: Rs. 150/- for 4.5 gm.

Now for the lip balm- it has a slight hint of color and glides on smoothly and instantly moisturizes dry, chapped lips. As is usual with the lip balms, these also vanish from the lips quite fast. A sip and a bite and they’re gone. In my experience, they are almost similar to Nivea lip balms except these might be a bit more tinted. Nivea Fruity Shine lip balms cost around Rs. 129/- for a 4.8 gm product, so the Baby Lips are definitely more expensive. In the end, it is upto you which one you prefer.

Colorbar Take Me As I am Lipcolor-Flirtatious Pink Review and Swatches

18 Oct

Hello beautiful people and a Happy Navratri to my Indian friends,

This is my first lipcolor review and I would be talking about Colorbar Take Me As I Am lipcolorΒ  in flirtatious pink….what…wait a minute… Pink?Moi???? Known for never loving this color, it came as a bit (no, a huge!) surprise to me when I tried it on.

I wanted to try Colorbar Take Me As I am Lipcolors as soon as I got to know about them. And headed to its exclusive store in an uber cool mall. Honestly, it has only been my utter fondness for the Colorbar lipsticks that takes me to that store. There is only one SA available whenever I have been there,Β  least interested in showing things, not friendly and this time she was chewing a gum with her mouth open! The lighting in the store especially over the mirrors is insufficient to get a fair idea of the lip color you are trying.

I wasn’t happy with the colors I tried there and though the chewing gum Rani offered to show other lipsticks, I went away.

Somehow, I still wanted to give the chubby pencils another chance. And so when I saw Colorbar’s kiosk at another mall, I asked for these lipsticks once again and zeroed in on this shade πŸ™‚ I was so surprised to find that a pink lippie could look good on me πŸ™‚

It stays on me for about 2 hours with light eating and drinking in-between, but these are super moisturizing and my lips remain soft even as it fades away.

Price: Rs. 699/-Β  comes with a sharpener- muft! muft! muft!

the ‘muft’ sharpener


there goes my Rs. 6.99 worth of lipstick!


Colorbar Take Me As I Am-Flirtatious Pink on my lips

Quantity: 3.94 gms

Time now for the Report Card…

Yays:

  • Packaging-these cute pudgy lipsticks remind me of Clinique Chubby Sticks
  • Very moisturizing
  • Glide on effortlessly
  • Super soft, so can be used till the tip becomes invisible (if that makes sense)
  • Comes with a muft sharpener

Nays:

  • Low staying power- atleast on my lips
  • Limited shades (eight in all)
  • Expensive
  • Sharpening can lead to product wastage

Score: 3.5/5
