Fall is just around the corner, and I am sorely tempted to bring you some fall appropriate posts even though my finals are so close. I am working on a few articles that I will be posting in November. Furthermore, you may have noticed by now that I've changed my background as I wanted to do something different for this particular post. I despise the idea of using textured backgrounds even though they look extremely pretty. I went to the shop to get some white sheets and ended up purchasing the textured ones. Do me a favor by stating your opinions in the comments below. Let's proceed ahead with the review as I cannot wait to share my thoughts with you all.
The only thing that pleases me is the thought of buying lipsticks. I am certainly a mad head who likes to collect a bunch of different lipsticks even though I have a thousand already. Maliha Rao from www.redalicerao.com
gave me these 5 eye-catching lipsticks as I won one of her weekly giveaways on Instagram. Now, if you are not aware of who she is, allow me to give you a brief description; Maliha Rao is one of the admins of Pakistani beauty society, and even though she is the most experienced and well known blogger of Pakistan, she never ceases to amaze me with her kindness and generosity.
The very first thing that I would like to discuss is the fragrance of these lipsticks. I do appreciate having a little bit of scent in my lip products but too much of it can wreck the whole idea of buying that particular lipstick in the first place. With great pleasure, I would like to point out that all of these lipsticks smell like caramel. I truly think that this particular scent matches the one MAC uses in their lipsticks as both of the scents are almost identical. Also, I was relieved to see that most of the shades that I got in my bundle are dark and bold.
The packaging itself is of very good quality and the tube is made up of black glossy plastic. The lipsticks that I got from MAC are pretty heavy, but of course one can truly spot the difference as they are pretty expensive as compared to these. I have this odd habit of comparing brands and blabbing too much in all of my blog posts; bear with me as I'm an honest soul, and I really like the idea of talking to each one of you through my blog posts.
Let me remind you for the third time that I love matte lipsticks, and most of the lip products that I own are matte. I was never interested in purchasing lip glosses even though I like to wear those when I have extremely chapped lips. My point is that these lipsticks are extremely creamy even though they are matte. I did not face any trouble while applying them, and I also liked the fact that all of these are extremely pigmented. I despise the idea of dragging a lipstick on my lips as I cannot stand the ones that are hard to apply. I wore ‘Arabian red’ for about 5 hours and it stayed there without bleeding. Also, all of these lipsticks are made up of premium ingredients like bamboo extract and shea butter, so give them a go if you haven’t already.
I am not aware of how many shades they have, but I do know that their color range is phenomenal. The shades that I got in my bundle are: Duchess, Korean pop, Lolita, Pink latte and Arabian red.
137 Duchess is for all those who are in favor of muted peach lipsticks. I do like to wear coral lip balms in winter season, but I am not exactly a fan of orange lipsticks.
145 Korean pop is a warm toned orange. It’s perfect for all those who like to wear orange lipsticks, and this particular shade is pretty bright and would look good on any skin tone.
134 Pink latte is warm toned pink with a hint of mauve. I think it’s a beautiful shade and you should definitely give it a go.
146 Lolita is warm toned dusty pink. It’s basically a better version of my lips, and I’d be more than happy to incorporate it in one of my winter looks that I am planning to do.
129 Arabian red is a warm toned red. I fell in love with this color the moment I saw it. I am a huge fan of dark red lipsticks, and this particular shade is perfect for fall.
All of these shades are available at Naheed supermarket, and each lipstick is of PKR 750. Grab a few lipsticks for yourself as they are really good.
