Lip Combo : Maybelline Lipstick And Lakme Lip Liner

Every time I review a lipstick, it makes me realize that I have so many of them and at least for some time , should ban purchasing one.... that.... is a confession of a shopaholic :).  Girls ! have you seen this movie "Confession of a Shopaholic" ??? if not then I recommend do watch it. Its hilarious :)

Today I am going to review a beautiful shade from Maybelline which is staple lipstick in my vanity. I have already exhausted two and this is my third buy. I love it so much !!!. Along with it, to define my lips is a gorgeous shade of Lakme Lip Liner in Brick Rose from their 9 to 5 range.

Maybelline Colorsensational's Moisture Extreme Range : Bronze Orange

When I say Bronze Orange what do you expect this lipstick to be, is it from brown or orange family?.
Well ! sometimes names could be quiet misleading.  Before buying this lipstick for the first time when the SA was showing me the shade this is what the conversation was.

SA  : Madam ! check this color Bronze Orange, its a beautiful shade.
ME : No no ... I don't want brown or orange shade. 
SA  : No this is neither , let me swatch on your hand and then make up your mind.
ME : Ok ! (thinking : what's harm in swatching)
ME : Oh wow ! that's a beautiful shade. Give me one please :)
SA  : :))) See I told you so ...

Price : Rs.  285/-

Its a beautiful peachy coral color and is ideal for everyday use. These range has some gorgeous shades that I can vouch for, earlier have used Coral Pink shade which is also a pretty color and a must have in your stash. Being my third lipstick, you can guess how good these lipsticks are.  The lasting power is not that great, last for like 3 hours and after meals you need to re-apply, as it might completely disappear.

The Good
Does not bleed
Highly moisturizing and hydrating
Good Pigmentation 
Value for money
Beautiful shade range
Easily Available 

The Bad 
Melts in hot weather
Lasting power is ok

SP Ratings : 3.5/5

Final Verdict

What the heck ! so what, if it does not stay for more than 3 hours. We women like to retouch our lipsticks after every few hours :).  These are must have in your kitty . Highly recommended !

Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner - Brick Rose 

Lakme Claims ...
The Lakmé Nine to Five Lip Liner gives you definition with a long lasting formula which sits on your lips through your day at work with no touch-ups. With its super gliding, never felt before satiny finish it feels beautiful on your pout. The perfect shades that work for work are easy to blend and have excellent color pay off. Its the key first step to perfect lips.  

Price : Rs. 375/-

My Experience ...

Lip liner gives a defined shape to your lips and add more color and staying power to your lipsticks. It like a Jai Veeru ki Jodi from Sholay :)

Ok Jokes apart... recently bought this lovely lip liner Brick Rose from Lakme 9 to 5 range. Its a pretty classic neutral shade in brown. The pencil comes in a rose gold packaging with transparent cap.The texture is soft  and smooth in application. Being so soft might end up wasting the product while sharpening the pencil, that's the sad part of it as you would not want to waste such a beautiful product.  Its a very sober shade and can be worn on any normal day.

The flip side is, it is little dry on lips hence a gloss over it or another moisturizing lipstick is a must. You have to swipe 2-3 times to get an even opaque coverage.These are very hydrating lipstick, you don't need a gloss over it. The good part is, it does not bleed but if you apply a gloss over it, there are chances it might.

SP Rating : 3.5/5

Final Verdict

This combo is sure going to win your hearts. Gorgeous shades and easy on pocket. Highly recommended !!!

With weekend round the corner and Eid festivities  in full swing, there's lot to look forward to. You guys take care and I will talk to you again very soon.

  4. Oooh, Lakme "Brick Rose" is so pretty!
    Maybeline lipsticks tend to be not very long-lasting. I think that it's because they're made with more wax than pigments.

  5. i have bronze orange and i absolutely love that color..i also had almost similar conversation with SA :P Nice review...would give lip liner a try..

  6. Bronze Orange is a nice color huh :)
    why no lip swatch gal ;)?
