IVC Makeup & Beauty Awards 2010 ~ Best Lipstick, Best Eye Pencil & Best Kajal

It is now time to pick the best of affordable Lipsticks, Eye Pencils & Kajals in the Indian market. Nominees for theses categories are, you can say, products that are in the same league. 

Best Lipstick
Nominees ~ Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick, Revlon Colorburst Lipstick, Loreal Color Riche Lipstick, Bourjois Sweet Kiss Lipstick, Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick

Best Eye Pencil
Nominees ~ Lakme Glide On Eye Color, Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil, Bourjois Effet Smoky Eyes Pencil

Best Kajal
Nominees~ Lakme Black Satin Kajal, Himalaya Kajal, Lotus Herbals Kajal

And the WINNERS are:

Best Lipstick Bourjois Sweet Kiss Lipstick
Best Eye Pencil ~  A tie between Colorbar I-Glide & Bourjois Effet Smoky Pencil. One is a nice & soft pencil that lasts, and the other is a good multi-purpose pencil that you can use as an eyeshadow too, so I just couldn't pick one over the other :)
Best Kajal ~ Lotus Herbals Kajal

Phew! It was hard to pick one winner, especially out of my top 3 lipsticks- Maybelline Color Sensational, Revlon Colorburst & Bourjois Sweet Kiss. Why I picked Bourjois Sweet Kiss is because Revlon Colorburst dries out my lips a little bit when it wears off & Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks are kinda unsettling, plus they can smell too strong during those days when your senses are heightened.

Are the the WINNERS your favorites too? Or....

♥ Cynthia Z ^.^


  1. Lotus kajal -yes
    Colorbar I glide- yes

  3. I really like these posts, I go back and forth between India and England quite a fair bit so I'm going to keep any eye out for these. I saw the Lakme lipglosses featured on another blog and they had staying power so I'm going to be looking for those when I go.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
