Since a lot of you ask me on Instagram about my thoughts on new launches, I thought it would be easy if I just regularly did these posts with my reccos on new launches. So I thought I’d do mini reviews of 4 exciting launches – all in one compact post. Browse through and let me know if you’d like to see more of these.
Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks
MAC retro matte liquid lipsticks – MAC’s iconic formulations in liquid form. This is actually more hydrating than the regular retro matte lipsticks (which dry the eff up) . Current favourite shade – To Matte with Love :) Pigmentation, ease of application and longevity – they tick all the right boxes.Only problem- they do settle into lines, and I only like two colors
Price – Rs.1850
Verdict – Buy . I loveee To Matte With Love, its such a nice hot pink
Glamglow Poutmud Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment & Wet Lip balm treatment – With all the liquid lipsticks ruling the roost, lip exfoliation has become a necessity. And Glamglow’s fizzy lip boasts of ingredients such as Caribbean Cane Sugar, Hawaiian Sea Salt & Hibiscus Flower Powder. If you are looking for a quick pre date lip softener you will love it, because instantly your lips feel softer. BUT, its not gonna do anything long term because your lips will feel the same after 3 hours or so
Price – Rs.2000 for fizzy lip, Rs.1600 for wet lip
Verdict – If you want a quick pre-date solution, then buy it because it softens your lips like crazy but the effects last only a few hours. I was looking for something more long term.
Wet N Wild Products on Nykaa
The Wet n Wild collection – So Wet n Wild is an LA based cruelty free, drugstore brand that has now launched in India (available on Nykaa). The collection has everything – primer, foundation, mascara, blush etc at affordable prices which is a god-send for beginners. Current favourite from the collection would have to be MegaGlo highlighting powder in Precious Petals. It is hands down one of the best highlighters iv tried (& Iv tried a ton of high end ones too). Other things I like in the brand-the lipsticks aren’t bad. I have a pretty pink called Rosebud and the shadows are okay too.
Price – Rs.499 for highlighter, Rs.399 for eyeliner, Rs.299 for eyeshadow trio, Rs.499 for liquid matte lipstick
Verdict – Buy the highlighter for sure.
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip colours
Bobbi Brown crushed lip colors – The latest Bobbi Brown offering comes in 20 shades. It gives a stained lip look and doesn’t leave the lips parched. This lipstick claims to contain beeswax and lends a satin matte finish. The colour payoff isn’t as intense as a traditional lipstick but I don’t think thats what it claims either. I absolutely love the colour called ‘ Babe’ but I didn’t love the formula. It felt like it was trying to be a balm and a lipstick and was kinda stuck in the middle.
Price – Rs.1700
Verdict – Buy only if you really are insanely in love with a particular shade. For me, It felt like it was a bit like jack of all trades master of none.
