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

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 Cosmo Look
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 b…

REVIEW: Stila All Day Liquid Lipstick in Aria
It's so good to be back!
I had been MIA since a couple for a couple of weeks and I have truly missed blogging :)
So the scene right now looks like this...
It's 10:30 pm, I am at my desk at work with a colleague (its called Pair-Programming), we have Roses by The Chainsmokers playing on the laptop speakers (the volume's low), we have just finished doing some changes to the code and are waiting for it to build successfully. If it does then we get to go home but if it doesn't then we are probably stuck here for another hour...
Its been like this since the past 3 weeks now and I am almost at the verge of saturation and so I decided to take a tiny little break from the monotony and get down to blogging... And here I am writing this post on my work laptop. The pictures are on my personal laptop and hence this post cannot go live before probably 1:00 am tonight!

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!

REVIEW: Revlon Ultra HD Matte LipColor in Addicted
I have meaning to do this review post since a while now but things have been simply crazy the past few days at work and personally as well... Plus with the long Independence Day weekend and the short trip that we took as a group just left me no time to do a review...
However, I am glad to be back to my daily routine and I feel all refreshed and am raring to go! :)

REVIEW & LOTD: NYX Butter Lipstick in Fire Brick

REVIEW & LOTD: NYX Butter Lipstick in Fire Brick
A girl can never have enough lipsticks. Give a girl 27 Red lipsticks and she will be able to tell you the difference between each of the 27 shades. We are gifted that way, intuitive even and hence when the pati exclaims at the number of lipsticks on display on my dresser I just smile at him and calmly open my drawers that hold triple the number of lippies :) *winks*

REVIEW SWATCHES: Favourite Lakme Enrich Matte Lipsticks

Review & Swatches of My Favourite Lakme Enrich Matte Lipsticks
Every once in a while a drugstore (afforadable) makeup brand comes up with a new launch that totally blows my socks off. Its a rare occurrence but it happens... The last time it happened was when Maybelline launched the Lip Gradation Lip Colors in India and I was complete bowled over. This time its Lakme that has me jump up with joy with their Enrich Matte Lipsticks...

Review: Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipstick - Cherry Wine

Elle 18 Color Pops Matte Lipstick Cherry Wine ReviewISLM Writer: Sanchita
When everyone is busy buying summer-y lipstick shades like tangerine, corals and pinks, I am busying purchasing dark berry, plums and maroons. Well, I am in love with dark shades right now and has been continuously wearing few shades from the Elle 18’s newest launch - the Color Pops Matte range. I have always rated Elle 18 somewhat average as I found their products okay-ish but this launch was a bomb.com. Read on the review of the lipstick to know more.

REVIEW: Kiko Milano Smart Lip Pencil - 709

Review of Kiko Milano Smart Lip Pencil in 709
Hey guys! I just got back from watching Udta Punjab and I must say that I loved it! Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from it because of the hype probably but I was stunned into silence by the movie. It seriously is a must watch and everybody did such a fabulous job in it... Alia Bhatt especially was outstanding but it would be unfair to not call out the others' performances as well...

I have been blogging about beauty and makeup since more than 5 years now and talking about the same brands, similar shades and almost duplicate products gets really monotonous... And hence when I got sent a few samples of these Island Kiss Lip Moisturisers, it felt like a whiff of fresh air :)

After the humungous success of the 'Pure Reds' collection,  L’Oreal Paris had come out with the 'Exclusive Pinks'. Having already heard about their launch in the international markets, I was waiting with crossed fingers for their launch in India. So, the other day when I was shopping around with one of friend's, I insisted on finally getting my hands on them at the L’Oreal Paris counter to finally check it out.

Hello pumpkins!
It has been about 3 months of Ishleen and her nonchalant gibberish here at ISLM now, and if you have been following even an ounce of me, you most probably know that there are only two things in makeup which excite the hell out of me! My nudes and my mattes, and if you got even one of these right in your head, just give your back a pat! So when it comes to trying matte lip glosses which are also nude, you know who is on the beginning of the queue.

My hometown of Imphal and well the whole of the state of Manipur is obsessed with everything Korea... Korean makeup, K-Pop stars, Korean fashion, Korean sitcoms, you'd be amazed at how the Korean society is such a huge hit there... I never understood the obsession until I started looking into Korean makeup trends and well after that I was hooked...

Being an ardent lippy addict, I have tons of lipstick in my stash, and yet I get gravitated to this very lipstick.

Street Wear Color Rich Ultra Moist Lip Color Very Vampire Review and Swatches!ISLM Writer: Sanchita

I never get tired of reds. There were several occasions I ended up buying a lipstick of same color (read: red) and not using it ever again. Well, old habits die hard. One of the latest buy of mine is the Street Wear Color Rich from an online portal. I expected it to be a darker version, so that I can wear it in winter (you know how you can confidently wear vampy colours in broad daylight) but somehow it turned out to be some other kind of red. Nevertheless, I loved its texture and it is very easy to wear in winter. Scroll down to know about the lipstick in details.
