REVIEW: Maybelline 14 Hours Superstay Lipstick In Eternal Rose

Maybelline 14hr Superstay Lipstick Eternal Rose Review

Long Stay... Gorgeous Pink

I am sitting here staring at my laptop screen wondering how to start my post. Nothing witty, nothing funny and nothing even remotely "cute" is coming to my mind... So I am just penning (typing) down whatever is going through my mind right now, which isn't really much... It's mostly blank... Is this what they call a Writer's Block? Not that I am any kind of writer but I guess my creative juices aren't really flowing today :(

So let me just get straight to the point :) Maybelline 14 hours Superstay lippies have been the talk of the town since the day it released and with 16 sumptuous shades to choose from, none of us are complaining... They seem to have a shade for everyone...

What Maybelline Says About Its 14hr Superstay Lipstick

Now, you can discover the light weight feel of the most colorful long-wear yet!
With a multitude of vibrant shades, in just one step, it lasts for 14 hours without ever drying, crumbling or feeling tight.
For the first time ever Maybelline New York introduces shade matched bottoms so you can now buy what you see!

What I Have To Say About Maybelline's 14hr Superstay Lipstick

Since the day I received the product in my post, I have been wearing it daily, even to office! It's a kind of shade that can get to you, in a good way of course and make you fall in love with it. It isn't the bright pink you think it will be and neither is it the typical pink that leaves you looking sallow and ill. It is just the perfect pink that would suit a multitude of skin tones and complexions.
It is that shade that brightens up your look and you need nothing else on your face. I myself have been wearing it even without kajal and that's a biggie for me!

As far the superstay part of Maybelline's claim in concerned, it sure does stay on for a pretty decent number of hours and with that I mean all throughout office hours. I haven't really tested it for 14 hours, but it stays on with the same intensity for about 6 hours and then starts to fade out evenly. Thus when I am back from office, its still there on me :)

Is it drying you ask... Well it isn't really drying but it isn't really moisturising or hydrating either. It's just there on your lips without doing anything to it except for looking pretty. It is pretty light weight and doesn't flake out. The fragrance on the other hand is pretty confusing. On some days I find it ok and on the others I absolutely hate it. It is an artificial, fruity kind of a smell but thankfully disappears after a couple of seconds on application.

However, I absolutely abhor the packaging. It has its lower half in a transparent plastic casing through which you can see the exact shade of the lippy. That's the nice part. The not so nice part is the cheap, white, plastic cap that comes with the lippy. I hate it! I wish they had made a steel cap go with it. That would have rendered it a more classy and maybe even an expensive feel to the whole product.

REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

Ooooohss And Aaahhss!! 1. Really really stays on forever. 2. Doesn't smudge on my oily lids even after 8 hours of wear. 3. Friendly to the pocket 4. Faces have become quite easily available now. 5. They do not cause any allergies or reactions. 6. They are waterline safe a…
