Here is more about Colour Riche Collection Exclusive La Vie En Rose Lipsticks

Star Collection J Lo’s Pink – Seems to be perfect for medium to dark skin tones. I love the shade because it has that berry look to it. It is a must have for your party vanity kit.

L’Oreal Paris Blake’s Pink – A good choice for lighter skin tones. It has a soft coral look it and is a good choice for a summer day out.

L’Oreal Paris Doutzen’s Pink – A very bright pink. I think each of us should own this shade, it can easily complement you on most occasions.

Star Collection Liya’s Pink – It is a reddish pink shade can be used by all Indian skin tones for occasion wear. The shade would compliment all Indian skin tones.

L’Oreal Paris Aishwarya’s Pink – A soft pink shade with little shimmer. Since the shade is matte you should exfoliate your lips well for the perfect finish.

Star Collection Naomi’s Pink – This is the lightest shade of the lot and will go well only with very fair Indian skin tones. It comes close to nude lips and can be paired with heavy eye makeup.

Collection Star Pink Sonam’s Azalea – It is the carrot coral pink and my current favorite. I feel this shade goes very well with my skin.

Collection Star Pin Katrina’s Orchid – It is a bright pink which will add bling to most of your party outfits.

Collection Star Pink Fan Bingbing’s Peony – It is a rather milky pink shade which is more suited for fairer skin tones.

Collection Star Pink Gong Li’s Lilac – As the name suggests it is a cute lilac shade again flattering the lighter skin tones in India.

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet Review

I am a hoarder for great scents so you can very well understand my love for The Body Shop products. Firstly let me tell you what a body sorbet is – Sorbet is frozen desert made of flavored sweetened water. If you ever had to apply strawberry sorbet on your body, it would feel exactly similar to the The Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet.

Recently I picked up The Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet from the local store. While I had to choose from the other flavors like The Body Shop Moringa Body Sorbet, The Body Shop Satsuma Body Sorbet and The Body Shop Mango Body Sorbet but since I have never tried something in strawberry scent I went ahead with this product.

Packaging

The product comes in a soft plastic tube with a flip open cap which is perfect to let out the exact amount you need. It neither sticks nor oozes out while travelling.

Texture

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Sorbet has a very soft liquid like texture which is very easy to apply and can be absorbed well by any type of skin type. You gently need to massage it on your skin for best results. It is very light and refreshing and seems ideal for summers or humid climate. It has a fresh strawberry like scent which is light and nice which stays for some time after application.

Although it does not provide enough moisture if you have very dry skin or if you want to use it for winters. It would have been better if it had little more hydrating powers and people with oily and combination skin could have used it any time.

I still feel it’s USP is the sweet and fresh strawberry fragrance. While application it does not smell anything away from strawberries and that’s why it seems to be my favorite.

Pros

  • Fragrance
  • light weighted
  • easy application
  • easily available
  • non oily

Cons

  • not hydrating enough
  • can’t be used in winters

MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick Review

MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick is one of the first choice of every fashionista on this planet. It feels like the perfect red for everyone. My tryst with MAC began as soon as I got MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick as a birthday gift from an aunt and that was it. I never looked back from there.

I have my favorite MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick review for all you ladies today which in my opinion is one of the best red shades for our skin tones. While there are other shades like Russian Red and Diva but Ruby Woo seems to be the best for me.

Packaging

The product comes in a black cardboard box like most other lipsticks. It is black in color and has the age old lipstick look which usually is the signature MAC lipstick look.

Texture

Though I am not too much of a lipstick person and my lips get dried up soon with matte lipsticks I still like MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick. It glides easily on your lips and you need 3-4 strokes to get the perfect bright red color. It doesn’t dry your lips easily and finishes just right.

My experience with MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick

I love the product for its color and texture. It is my go to for a day out when I am not in a mood for a lot of make-up or even otherwise. I have used it when I wanted to have bright red full lips with a monochrome dress and equally well with the Indian traditional attire. It seems to complement me everywhere. It shows best results when used with MAC Ruby Woo Lip Liner to get a perfectly defined look. I still recommend using lip balm underneath for a softer look or if you have extremely dry lips like me.

I like the color and would recommend any girl who loves red lipstick to go ahead and buy it.
