Today’s post is my recent
Lipstick Haul. I am an adventerous explorer to the core and it quite reflects in my make up collection . Now “Makeup is all about expression” & I always felt growing up that something as simple as applying color on my lips makes a deep impact on my daily life. I was never devoted to any particular shade range ever, although when I turned 30 , I steer clear from berries and burgandys for fear of looking mature. ( …Yes!!! !)
Especially in my 30’s , I started making effort to choose bright jovial shades like glamorous pinks , bright fuchsias and pop-up tangerines over browns and plums . In my 20’s, I was sort of comfortable with all the shades but from past couple of years , I was just trying to stay away from deep mauves and maroons to look and feel younger “Honestly!!” .
Then ,Year 2017 came with a shift in my thought & I have started loving myself as grown woman who is in comfort zone of wearing all the shades with élan & without fear of looking awkward . I promised myself not to limit myself to colors or clothes anymore to feel certain way rather took 30’s as an expansive age to explore both 20’s and 40’s in domains of fashion and beauty. So in this “Lipstick Haul”, I think I have lived by the self promise I made as I picked up different lipstick shades including berry toned lip colors which I quarantine earlier for reasons I just mentioned,

I have hauled lipsticks from drugstore as well high end in past two months to diversify my collection. Maybelline has come up with so many exciting launches this summer 2017 that I ended picking up four lipsticks and Maybelline Color Sensational Glam 6 Lip Polish as GWP.
L’Oreal has also introduced couple of new launches in its L’oreal Magique Range. I have recently reviewed the Magique Eyeliner which was launched somewhere in September 2016. Among the Rouge Magique Lipsticks, I have picked shade Secret date which is gorgeous plum toned pink that will work across the complexions. Then Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Lip Colors were ingrained in my mind for its Argan oil enriched formula which act as great lip conditioner. I was smitten by the shade Smooth Merlot which is perfect mixture of burnt orange and brown, so picky up same.
Catching up with recent trends of matte in makeup world , The Body Shop has also come up Matte Liquid Lipsticks & Matte lipsticks .I have picked one liquid matte lipstick from TBS that makes only pink vibrant shade of my entire haul .( One I am wearing in the video here)
Among the luxury picks,I selected Bobbi Brown Art Stick and MAC Amplified Lipstick Brick-O-La from Nykaa Luxe Store. MAC Brick- O -La was on my wishlist since past four years so I did not even think twice before buying it as I had already shown much patience for justifying it’s purchase to my critical self.
Bobbi Brown Art Stick is a new launch and I was quite enticed by the crayon tube packaging. I checked the swatches by Leanne @loveforskincare ( love her swatch posts ) and chose shade Cherry !! I liked two more shades among Bobbi Brown Art Sticks- Honey Bare among the nudes and Papaya among the brighter reds ones but I soldiered for cherry which is berry toned , gorgeous red that looks flattering on my Indian Skin Complexion.
