Chambor Rouge Plump + no. 774- Review Swatch and LOTD

16 Dec

Hi Everyone,

Today I am reviewing a juicy lipstick from Chambor’s latest collection- Rouge Plump+ in shade no. 774.

Chambor Rouge Plump+  Lipstick no. 774

Chambor Rouge Plump+ Lipstick no. 774

What Chambor says:

Chambor presents Rouge Plump+, the secret to sensuously full lips. A lipstick isn’t just a lipstick anymore. With Chambor, it becomes your beauty secret that helps you get the desired result in plumpness, moisture, colour and a lot more. The new Rouge Plump+ amplifies lips by 25%* giving you sensuously full lips. This has been dermatologist tested and clinically proven.

*Based on actual study conducted on 60 women who used Rouge Plump+, thrice a day for 30 continuous days.

What makes Rouge Plump+ so unique?

The answer in its formula…Rouge Plump+ contains Green Pea Extracts, which boost collagen and elastin production; adding sensuality and volume to your lips. While the cooling and stimulating sensation of menthol in Rouge Plump+ leaves your lips feeling refreshed.

Chambor Rouge Plump+ Lipstick no. 774

Price: Rs. 745/- for 2.5 g

This is a richly textured and highly pigmented lipstick. You need just one swipe to get its full color. Shade no. 774 falls into my favorite ‘rust’ lipcolor with brown undertones. This is a great color for our Indian skintone and instantly livens up the face.

The formula is super moisturizing and the lipstick glides across the lips like a dream. Chambor Rouge Plump+ packaging is similar to its ‘Truly Lasting’ range; only the packaging here has leather like texture.  The lipstick gives a minty sensation like the Revlon Moisture Stay Lipsticks. It stays on for 2-2.5 hours with minimal eating and drinking, but vanishes after a full meal.

Though I love the luxurious feel of the lipstick, I was disappointed to notice that the moisturizing part vanished from my lips in about half an hour.

Chambor Rouge Plump+ Lipstick no. 774 LOTD

My Views:

Yays:

  • Super gorgeous color
  • Highly pigmented
  • Moisturizing
  • Smooth texture
  • Decent packaging
  • Wide range of colors to select from

Nays:

  • Mighty expensive
  • Staying power could have been better
  • The moisturizing property vanishes in 30 minutes, leaving the lips a little dry
  • Not sure about the Plumping part-my lips are plumped enough naturally! 😛

 

Score: 3.75/5

Do you own any of the Chambor Rouge Plump + lipsticks? How did you find it? Do comment below.

The lipstick has a luxurious texture, very smooth, moisturizing and makes the lippies look juicy  :)It stays on for about 2 hours with minimal eating and drinking and leaves a very faint color behind.

The Color Riche collection has many beautiful shades for our skin-tones- so you can find one that suits you. Its misturizing formula makes it ideal for winters.

My Views:

Yays:

  • Luxuriously rich and super moisturizing formula
  • Beautiful packaging
  • Nice selection of color in this range
  • Divine Wine is especially apt for our skintone

Nays:

  • My lipstick broke…that too in winters!! 😦
  • Expensive

Ultimate Eyeliner by Colorbar is a unique product which is perfect for defining your eyes in a lightning speed without any application difficulty. Its professional flexible brush offers great accuracy to line and define the eyes, ensuring an even application.

It hasn’t dried out (as yet) and the tip is really sharp-so its great for making winged liner 🙂 For Rs. 499/-, it is a bit pricey, but its worth it because of its color, formula and pigmentation.

It is available in Black and there’s a gorgeous ‘French Blue’ as well.

Highly recommended!

Report Card:

Yays:

  • B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l colour 🙂
  • Super easy to use felt tip liner-great for beginners or winged liner novice 😛
  • Formula doesn’t dry out (like other felt tip liners 😉 )
  • Good staying power
  • Water resistant not waterproof (it might be a con for some, pro for others)
  • Doesn’t create raccoon eyes when splashed with water –as many of us remove make-up with water and face wash/soap

 

Nays:

  • Rs. 499/- for 1 ml product is expensive

Score: 4.75/5

Hope you found this review interesting and helpful, do drop in your comments below.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk Review EOTD

3 Dec

Hi everyone!

Hope your weekend had been enjoyable.  Today, I am reviewing a product that I am crazy about- Maybelline Color Tattoo in  Pomegranate Punk.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Pomegranate Punk

Price: Rs. 350/- for 4 g

Maybelline Color Tattoos are  creamy eye-shadows that can be used as an eye shadow base as well,  so quite like the MAC Paintpots, but lot more easy on the pocket 😉

The shade reminds me of Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream Plum – burgundy 🙂 The color is plum mixed with dark red, ideal for Indian skin tone and it has very fine shimmer which doesn’t look OTT at all even when you pile it on.

These are so easy to blend, and work well with fingers and stay on very easily for 5-6 hours without creasing (even on oily eyelids).

Here’s my Report Card:

Yays:

  • Beautiful shade-great for Indian skin tone
  • Super easy to apply
  • Stays put easily for 5-6 hours without creasing
  • Shimmer doesn’t spread
  • Great price
  • Free brush with every jar 🙂

Nays:

Ummm…can’t think of any….. 🙂

Score: 10/5 😛

Maybelline Color Tattoos are fabulously formulated, super easy to blend and are suitably priced, so grab your eye tattoos soon!

Bye for now,

Maitri
