LAKME ABSOLUTE MATTE REVOLUTION LIP COLOR LIPSTICKS |Review, Swatches

Let’s be really honest, I’m not a fan of Lakme lipsticks at all, until I found the 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lipsticks. That was by far my first and best encounter from entire Lakme, beautiful shades with amazing formula. And after that, recently I found something interesting from Lakme again, the Matte Revolution Lip Color lipsticks from the Lakme Absolute range. Right from the launch I know I had to try these lipsticks, omg they were so tempting in fact. I waited for some time to check for some swatches from bigger influencers so that I invest in them because I kid you not, these are quite expensive ones for a drugstore brand like Lakme. Anyways in this post, I’ll talk about some of the shades I picked from the Lakme Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color lipsticks.

FACES CANADA WEIGHTLESS MATTE FINISH LIPSTICKS |Review, Swatches

Well, I’ll admit that it was Faces Canada’s lip crayons that I totally adored back then, and I dunno if any other brand had lip crayons (like the matte ones) two-three years back. Although they had very limited shades, they slowly started building up their game. If you haven’t checked that review, here it is – Faces Ultime Pro Matte Lip Crayons. And now after a long time, I think Faces is back again with another adorable launch, in fact a low-key launch I should say because hardly no one had a word that Faces launched them. And any new updates I always get through Nykaa, which happened to be like India’s Sephora! After a thorough research about the shades and the formula, I finally – finally ended up picking 4 shades from the Weightless Matte Finish Lipsticks. They also have the Creme Finish Lipsticks, which I wasn’t that much into, coz I love matte lippies. In this post, I’ll be talking about these lipsticks.

SOAPWORKS INDIA – EARTH RHYTHM HAUL!

Seeing some eco-friendly brands is just a satisfaction, I tell you! Did you know that plastic is one of the major causes of today’s pollution, and that India is one of the top contributors of it. We, at some point are devastated with the havoc being caused, but at the same time in a situation where we have been used to all this in our life. A little change has to happen somewhere – and that can start from you! As far as me being a blogger, receiving PR packages and looking at all the plastic packaging I had to get through, it is sometimes disappointing. But I’m glad there are some brands, especially Indie brands pushing to save environment by the three R’s method; you know the ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’. One of them being Soapworks India. Or should I actually say- the first brand that I’ve come across that uses ZERO PLASTIC PACKAGING, ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS and moreover (phew! this is so heartwarming) Soapworks India trains some amazing SUPER-HUMANS to work alongside with them, and kid me not every time I receive something from Soapworks I always have this warm feeling just looking at it, adoring it and thinking of who might have made my product to make me shine. God Bless them OMG! Anyways let’s get into the mainstream now.
