The heat in Delhi is getting unbearable,specially when it becomes the humid kind. :-\ I am eagerly waiting for the monsoons.I came back from my office bearing this furnace environment.Yes! In India,we don’t have everything centrally air conditioned.I travel by public transport-the bus(usually I prefer the AC one) and a shared auto,where the driver crams up to 8 people in a seating area of 6.I drive occasionally. 😦
But my mood got uplifted when I got all my parcels today from Flipkart and Jabong.com.I had ordered 3 lipsticks from Blue Heaven brand having shades from the red and maroon family.I love these shades and they complement my skin.
Price: INR 105 for 4g which I find reasonable for the quality and quantity.
Availability: Easily available in the drug stores and online.Yes! Internationally also.I did see them on Ebay.com.
Texture: It’s neither matte nor glossy.Glides easily on the lips.When I first applied it,I found it less smooth.But later,it was easy to apply.
Packaging: Comes in a paper box.The lipstick packaging is sassy.It is golden plastic and sturdy to carry around in your purse.
My views:I bought 3 shades namely Cherry red which is dark red with pinkish undertones but its lipstick bullet looks bright red(R002),mocha magic which is wine coloured lipstick(M020) and iced cocoa which is lighter version of M020 or lavender coloured lipstick(CB028).I found minute shimmers in mocha magic and iced cocoa but they didn’t appear loud on the lips. If you are on the budget,go for this.For the money you will pay,this is worth it.It keeps the lips moisturized and has a sheen to it.Color payoff is good.Stays on the lips for 4-5 hours and leaves a beautiful tint on the lips.It is budgety and travel friendly.Also,they have many shades.
For removing the lipsticks,I first used a dry cotton and it easily took most of the color away in 1-2 swipes.That means,you can easily remove them with a remover in one swipe only.
