REVIEW: NYX Cosmetics Full Throttle Lipstick in Trickster

REVIEW: NYX Cosmetics Full Throttle Lipstick in Trickster

We just finished watching "Eye in the Sky" and I have numbed to say the least. To be met with a requirement to have to decide between a sensitive collateral damage and a risk of being responsible for losing hundreds of lives is something that I don't ever want to be a part of. And the movie is just about that. I recommend watching it if you haven;t already and if you have then do share your thoughts with me! I'd love to hear the myriads of perspectives that readers of ISLM generally have!

Anyway, coming to the issue at hand - my obsession with a certain Purple lipstick...
I have been bombarding Instagram (@isimplylovemakeup) with pictures of me wearing this certain Purple Lipstick and I am in love :) Please put your hands together for NYX Cosmetics Full Throttle Lipstick in Trickster!

Price of NYX Full Throttle Lipstick 

It costs INR 600/-

Let's talk about the shade first. I am not really a Purple Lipstick person. Give me Reds or Pinks and I am sold for life. Where Purples are concerned I have always found them unflattering for my skin tone, however I bought the shade Trickster online because that was the only shade left in stock from the Full Throttle range and boy am I glad :)
Its everything I have ever wanted in a lipstick shade. It's unique, its flattering and very surprisingly would look beautiful on almost any kind of skin tone, it is a perfect blend of Pink and Purple :)

Texture wise NYX Cosmetics Full throttle Lipsticks are fabulous. They are very light-weight, almost like a mousse and yet are matte and very long staying. They are not drying at all and it is my go to lipstick when I am out on a dinner date where I am expected to gulp down glasses of Long Island Iced Tea one after another and then go for a hearty meal cause you know the lips does not budge!

I bought the lips from

Overall Rating:

I would whole-heartedly recommend NYX Full Throttle Lipstick in Trickster.


  1. Nice shade. Loved it.

  2. Would it suit dusky skin tone

  3. such a pretty purple pink, love it. Suits you to the hilt.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

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.
