Hello my lovelies, every time that I go lipstick surfing red color is always my go to. I agree with all the girls who say a tint of red color can do wonders for us. I would judge a lipstick by its red color and then decide it is worth buying or no. Recently I stumbled upon this NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream online and I have always fallen for the reds by NYX. So I picked up NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam after seeing the swatches.
NYX used to be my favorite since my high school much before online businesses came into existence. I got one from a big shop in Mumbai and I lost it on the day of bae’s birthday. I was so full of myself that day that I didn’t realize dropping my wallet and also my favorite red lipcolor.
Product Claims – Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this Matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a Matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some Matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.
Price – 8ml for INR 600
Lip creams are a revolution in the lipcolor segment; I have loved them for their ease of use and rich color. Lip creams come in a packaging like a gloss and dry up like a matte lipstick. The best thing is it does not chap your lips like a normal matte lipstick would do. You might want to use a lip balm as a base if you have superdry and chapped lips like I do.
You can use two lip cream shades and create the perfect ombre lips that are the in thing of the day. Create a base with a lip balm and use a dark shade lip cream for the first color. Add the other lighter shade to create an ombre impression and finish with a transparent gloss.
The color is the prettiest red, it has that English touch to it. It still is quite bright but giving me a desired look every time. It suits very well for my traditional as well as my western outfits. I love to pair it with my black dresses.

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.
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.
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.

Off late I haven't really brought something from Lakme in lip care so this year while I was getting ready for the razzmatazz I wanted to look beyond my NYC red lip color which mind you, can never ever
Sonam Kapoor who has become a youth fashion icon of-late. Recently Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is catching a lot of attention majorly because of the look the directors have brought in. Coming from Rajshri the movie was sure to come with a lot of Indian family traditional drama and even the songs and the styling of the movie says so. The kind of clothes shown in the movie are far from our daily routine but the good part being we have a lot to take from it for this festive season.
Sonam and Salman have come out in a total new avatar where we all have high expectations from them. Though I am pretty sure the movie will revolve around the 2000 era cliche but let us take a look for our diwali preps.
Sonam looks stunning in this look and here is all you need to create one of your own looks like hers.
Since it is diwali season round the corner I would recommend a base that is appropriate for normal to dry skin so you do not need and extra layer of cream for good results. Sonam kapoor shows a flawless radiance for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
You will just need a hint from the nude pallette to enhance your eyes but not so much on your face. I am very fond of nude eye colors because I feel it is capable of giving you your favorite looks for the day as well as the night. Read about Maybelline The Nudes Palette Review
The most essential part of any make up for diwali, I believe is a lip color. It can absolutely make or break your image and look. I have chosen my favorite from the color show range by Maybelline.
A hair straightener is all you need to make your rest in place, be it the centre parting or even if you want to flaunt a puff bun right in front you can straighten to get the perfect look.
This is my diwali inspiration from sonam kapoor in Prem ratan dhan payo and I am sure you will have a good time creating this for yourself. Do leave in comments below how did you celebrate diwali.
Maybelline came out with Colorshow range last year for nail paints and followed it by lip colors. It became a huge hit among the girls of the country so they came up with the new matte range and here is
