Review: Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in Rosy Sunday

 

Review of Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in Rosy Sunday


Guest Post by: Mrittika

After coming across this shade on a beauty blog, I nearly searched all possible Lakme counters at malls as well as small stores, but none of them had it. I had to book this shade and left my number with the SA to inform me whenever stock comes in. Well, that’s how I got it.
 
The name Rosy Sunday itself gives me a happy feeling. Well, who doesn’t love Sunday? The shade is pinky coral with a hint of red. It’s matte but not literally. It’s super creamy yet doesn’t melt or break. Most of these 9 to 5 lipsticks give a velvety finish. It’s insanely pigmented. One swipe is enough to cover pigmented lips.







I usually fill in my lips with a lip liner and then dab this lipstick instead of swiping it over. It stays on my lips for good 5 hours. One swipe is good enough for a day time look while couple of swipes can easily transform into a bold look. This shade will suit cool as well as warm skin tones easily. With this shade in particular, I do experience some dryness at times, but nothing major.




Price of Lakme 9 to 5 Lipsticks

They cost INR 400/-

Pros of Lakme 9 to 5 Rosy Sunday:
  1. Nice unique shade
  2. Matte
  3. Good staying power
  4. Feminine rose gold packaging
  5. Price

Cons of Lakme 9 to 5 Rosy Sunday:
  1. Makes lips a bit dry
  2. It’s an excellent shade, but doesn’t look the way I thought it would on me.

Repurchase?
No, as it doesn’t look the way as it is on others. I love it on others. It turns out to be a shade darker on my lips.

Rating:
7.5/10.

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
