REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Matte Lip Pen - She's So Matte!

L'Oreal Paris Le Matte Lip Pen in She's So Matte - Indoors

Review of L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Matte Lip Pen in She's So Matte!

As far as I am concerned there are 2 kinds of Indian skintones, the ones that suit MAC Cosmo (and Mehr) and the ones that don't. I fall into the latter category and because of shades like these I have always believed that pink-ish nudes would never look good on me...
I believe I have also done a post (or two?) on Cosmo and Mehr and how horrendous they look on me.

MAC Mehr Look

These shades put me off of nude pinks for years until I chanced upon the L'Oreal Paris Le Matte Lip Pen in She's So Matte a week ago and it changed my life... The shade as you can tell is a gorgeous, matte nude pink and it would look flattering on fair to medium skin tones. I really can't say how it would look on darker skin shades, unfortunately.

I posted a couple of Instagram stories wearing this shade and I have been bombarded with DMs asking about the shade! So that's testimony enough about how beautiful the shade is ^_^

Price of L'Oreal Paris Le Matte Lip Pens

They cost INR 750

The L'Oreal Paris Le Matte Lip Pens are exactly what they are called; they are matte lip colors in a pen like packaging that twists up and down to reveal or hide the product. They come in a variety of shades ranging from nudes to pinks to reds.

Texture wise they feel a lot like Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Gradation Pens. They glide on smoothly and dry up into a powdery, almost velvety finish that feels not only light an fluffy but is also not drying... It literally feels like you are not wearing anything on your lips at all!
The Maybelline ones however applied smoother than these L'Oreal ones.

The staying power is good enough and I have noticed that the product needs to retouched only after a significant number of hours and a hearty Indian lunch. The lippy survives coffee and sandwiches very well!

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

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

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!
