 Red Lipstick

If you just can’t resist a red lipstick, then hear this: the season’s biggest beauty news is the huge comeback of the scarlet lip. You’ll see it trending on fashion runways, magazine shoots, red carpet events and on celebrity lips everywhere!

A pop of bold, bright red on the mouth is a great way to update a beauty look instantly. L’Oréal Paris’s all-new, celebrity-favourite Collection Exclusive Pure Reds range is the season’s key beauty accessory to getting this most-wanted look.

The Pure Reds collection, which was designed with the brand’s celebrities in mind, offers a range of hues in lightweight textures with hydrating effects and rich pigments. Choose from Doutzen’s ‘Pure Fire’, Laetitia’s ‘Pure Garnet’, Blake’s ‘Pure Ruby’, Julianne’s ‘Pure Vermeil’, Freida’s ‘Pure Amaranthe’, Liya’s ‘Pure Scarlato’, J-Lo’s ‘Pure Rouge’ or Eva’s ‘Pure Brick’ for romantic to dramatic colours that go from classic to contemporary in luscious, lively shades of berry, brick, ruby, cherry, garnet and more.

L’Oréal Paris’s international make-up artist Karim Rahman says: “Eight stunning shades in this supremely wearable collection ensure a perfect match for every single woman, and that’s just one of the things I love about it! The shades really are tailor-made to suit any skin tone, and to not just suit, but look sublime and flatter with their intense soft velvet coverage and modern matte effect. The matte look is so very now, and it gives the red lip a truly updated texture.”

Karim Rahman adds: “For a glamorous look with a long-lasting result, apply the lipstick with your finger, then clean the contours with a cotton bud. Finally, blend with a lip pencil and draw the contour following your lip line.” The result is a gorgeous, soft matte mouth that’s fresh and fabulous for the season.

Review : Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colors



Hi Beauties,

as the weather is on change and spring is here so wanted to add some springy colors to my lip collection and Rimmel came up with these Rimmel Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colours an exclusive two-step lip colour for a kiss-proof, trouble proof pout. which says,

Step one: slick on WOW colour. Step two: lock it in with INCREDIBLE shine and moisture.

Provocalips delivers hi-impact endless colour with a delectably glossy finish. The intense colour is locked in place for up to 16 hours.

It’s kiss-proof, food-proof and transfer-proof, only coming off when you want it to so you can go WILD without a trace.

This vibrant stay-put colour feels as good as it looks. The ultra-comfortable formula is so lightweight and flexible that it adapts to the movement of your lips.

There’s no tightness or dryness. Instead, lips feel sensationally smooth and moisturized all day long. What’s not to love?

Provocative lips are as easy as 1, 2… there’s no 3!  First, apply the wow-worthy colour to bare lips and allow to dry. Second, apply the gloss-like top coat to lock in colour, moisture and shine.

This clear gloss top coat can be reapplied throughout the day for an added burst of lustre and moisture. And when you want to take-off the lip colour, simply use an oil-based make-up remover.

I got two shades to try 730 Make your move (a beautiful peachy brown color)  & 11o Dare to pink ( a nude pink color) Comes in a double ended applicator,  the first is the liquid colour which is applied with a doe foot applicator and the second is a gloss which locks in the colour and add glossy shine, this is also applied with a doe foot applicator.


rimmelcollageLeft without gloss 730 Make your move &11o Dare to pink  : Right with gloss  730 Make your move &11o Dare to pink


Both are gorgeous for everyday, very opaque together, comfortable on lips no stickiness with the gloss, looks beautiful,  lasts for 6 hours flawlessly…Can be taken off with any oil based makeup remover or  olive oil..ideal long wearing lipcolor will be trying in some more shades which I am already eyeing on specially 310 Little Minx, 500 Kiss Me You Fool

Only downside is than bit fades on the inner side of the mouth which is common with these liquid lipsticks. For touch up their is a trick which after trying out many the liquid lipsticks I learnt which is don’t reapply all over as it becomes chunky and not comfortable, just touch up the inner rim if you have to where it fades. rimmellipcollage

Red Lipstick for Valentines day.


An ode to red lipsticks …..if you are following my on instagram @q8mangopeople than you must have been seeing that I am sharing some of my favorite red lipsticks since the start of February and why not who doesn’t like a classic red pout….I love red lipsticks which is growing day by day…as it looks very classy and elegant with shiny lids and a simple winged liner dont have to work much to look good! Just a few steps to follow foea perfect pout while wearing are Red or any lipstick and even a lipstain (my new crush).

1. Exfoliate- this takes away all the dry skin off the lips take your fav lips scrub..don’t have any no worries mix some oil with sugar and gently scrub the lips.Wash it off with some warm water

2. Hydrate-this is very important specially after srubbing as it provides .moisture and hydrates the lips

3. Conceal- Why conceal? As this step will cover the lip and pop the lipstick color.

4. Line lips-Before lipstick use a lipliner either the lipstick shade or a few shade deep..this stops the color from bleeding  and also gives the lips a perfect shape…a tip to make the lipstick more long lasting, use the lipliner to fill the lips and than apply lipstick..as the lipstick will adhere to the lipliner and will last for long on the lips.

Hi beauties,

This limited-edition palette contains:

TYRANNY – warm brown matte

VENGEANCE – deep taupe-brown matte-satin

FURIOUS – white satin

ANGER – black satin with slight tonal sparkle


The shiny black case features the fateful Ezekiel passage voiced by Jules Winnfield in the film. Inside, there’s a generous mirror and a blood-red double-ended brush (a compact shadow brush and a multitasker brush). It also included a “Get the Look” card—with step-by-step instructions for creating a modern version of Mia’s look from the film.






I totally enjoyed playing with the palette the earthy tones are so gorgeous goes so well with my skintone  and so much wanted the whole collection the lipstick & nail polish are just perfect for the winters. The glitter liner is a mix of black and silver glitters, a pretty salt and pepper mix adding it gives a holiday oomph to the look.

Review : No7 BBlips with SPF 15 in BerryRose


Hi Beauties,

I always heard of BB creams, CC creams now maybe in future DD creams ;)…..but didn’t knew there is something as bb (beauty Balm) for lips, I guess I am living under the stone than 😛  Yesterday tried the Boots No7 BBlips in Berryrose which has also Spf 15 which says 1 simple step provides 3 lip-loving benefits ; beautiful color , soothing nourishment & UV protection.

This bblips comes a berry color tube. The balm also is very beautiful rich berry color, its not too glossy or shiny but nice  like a tinted lip balm .The color is sheer…. I have used some lip balms with SPF but not any fond of them I think they taste very bad if comes in the mouth but this thing is good no nasty taste…has a scent to it .

When I applied didn’t notice anything much but after couple of minutes my lips a bit looking healthy usually in daytime I use matte lipsticks which after a while on my lips start to look chippy and  dry ..the lip stick color even goes patchy so I think little bit of this can work on this now as a gloss is too shiny for daytime. …..the formula is good very moisturizing and  gives healthy looking plump also to the lips I didn’t notice any minty or irritating on lips but it did bit plump up my lips may be due to the moisturizing effect of it. After taking off can feel my lips very smooth.



I used it another ways too to check how it goes with other lip products, I lined my lips with a Rimmel Color Rush in 220 (Rumour has it) and  filled in with the lip balm which I loved .I also paired it Cliniques chubby stick in 03 Mightiest Maraschino ( applied over it) which was nice and intense didn’t notice any bleeding it around the lips…so I think this will be my got to lip balm in coming days ❤
