Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink ~ POET, DREAMER, PHILOSOPHER, ROMANTIC


They're beautiful, but they are my least favorite liquid lipsticks, till date.

I was drawn to the shade range, but the formula is not one I want in a liquid lipstick - or any lipstick, for that matter.

They are too sticky, and feel sticky forever! Literally, like 50% dry paint. I dread sticking my top & bottom lips together when I'm wearing these, so I end up pouting like a fish.

BUT, they do last forever too. They are truly waterproof & are the hardest to wipe off - even at the end of the day. You'll need more than a tissue.
(Kudos to the ladies who do video swatches of these!)

Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Swatches: Poet, Dreamer, Philosopher, Romantic


Poet & Dreamer are my favorites.

Philosopher makes me look like a corpse. 
(I got it when I was lilac-obsessed.)

Romantic is one of the most intense fuchsia pinks.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna ~ Haul


As you all know, Rihanna launched her most-awaited beauty brand last year. FENTY, as in Robyn Rihanna Fenty. If you didn't know that, it's alright, I didn't know it either. 

In Rachel Green's words, I thought she was just Rihanna.... you know, like Moses.

To be honest, the products didn't really appeal to me when I first saw them. Maybe I had just grown up a bit more, and wasn't going crazy over every new launch & getting sucked into every new hype, you know. But when I saw them at Sephora (Bangkok), I felt kind of obligated to get something, mainly because I love her music so much..... I felt I had to pick up at least 1 product. Well, one thing led to another... and this is what I ended up with!

NEW! Maybelline Color Jolt, L'Oreal Lip/Blush Paints, ETC


"Aaahhh!!!"

"How many shades? How much?"

"No, no. No lacquer. No glossy. ONLY MATTE!"

"You have a chair? I have to sit down."

"Please give me cotton."
 (there's no space left on my hands to swatch.)

"Ooh, what's this?! Is it new? Why didn't you show it to me?"

"Oh Lord, have mercy!"

 ******

That's me at Lifestyle... or any makeup store for that matter! ;p


I swear the word "Matte" makes me go.... MAD!

Combine that with "Paint", and I'll end up looking stunned at the 
cash counter when the guy says the total amount.

EOTD: Liquid Lipstick Liner



Eyes Of The Day

I've always wanted to wear a coral eyeliner exactly like this shade, but I've never found one.
Thanks to liquid lipsticks, now I don't need to wish for one anymore, and...umm... once wondered if a matte nail polish would work. 

Once! I said once

NEVER put nail polish on your eyelids!

Birthday Confessions & Haul


Today's NOT my birthday. It came & went a week ago, but I couldn't find the time to get this post up then. Now I'm doing the usual should I/shouldn't I post thing.....and then I post it.

Let's start with the good stuff... 

....and you will see I went a lil' crazy with the liquid lipsticks....


Starting from the top, clockwise:

Benefit They're Real Mascara Mini ~ Oh my God! I'm doomed, because I will need the full-sized tube. This mini version is around  Rs.800 & the full sized tube is Rs.2400 or so. It is fantastic - long, fluttery & separated lashes like no other mascara I've tried before. (From Sephora)

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Personal Statement (Shocking Pink), Rich & Restless (Mid tone pinky salmon) & Lady Be Good (Warm Mid-tone Nude) ~ Out of stock. Always out of stock. It's a miracle few shades were restocked on my birthday! 

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Bellisissima (Pale Neutral Pink), Patina (Dusty Rose) & Fiore (Hot Pink) ~ LOVE these! (From Sephora)

Chambor Extreme Wear Transfer Proof Liquid Lipstick in 461 (Coral) & 431 (Red) ~ I like the first one I got #403, so I couldn't resist getting a coral & a red. I think I'm done now ;p

MAC Face & Body Foundation in C2 ~ It's time to try out a MAC Foundation for realz. Another product that was OOS for months! I mean my shade C2.

Givenchy Prisme Libre Mat-Finish & Enhanced Radiance Loose Powder 4 in 1 Harmony ~ My favorite & the most pricey (Rs.4000). This has been on my wishlist since last year. There are 4 powders in this - beige, yellow, peach, bronze. (From Sephora)
