Color Studio Professional Pure Matt Lipsticks [Review+Swatch]

Being a lipstick person, I usually prefer matte lipsticks. The reason being, matte lipsticks have a better staying power than a satin or glossy finish lipsticks. Not everyone can make a good matte lipstick, was Color Studio Professional successful in making a good matte lipstick? 
Color Studio Professional - Pure Matt Lipstick

Bare lips - Paradise - Predator
My experience:
Color Studio Pro always surprises with their new launch, this time it was the packaging and the product. I will start with the packaging, which I adore. It comes in a black box with a golden case that slides out carrying the lipstick tube - very high end. Not only the box, but the tube itself is sturdy and chic. Classic black plastic tube with golden line. Not the usual round, but square tube.

Coming to the product, the first thing you will notice as soon as you will open the lid is the sweet vanilla scent, just like MAC lipsticks. If you are not a fan of sweet vanilla scents, don't worry it doesn't linger on the lips for long. 

Since they are matt lipsticks, I had an idea of the texture and longevity. Unlike a few matte lipsticks, CSP Pure Matt is not dry and difficult to use. It is creamy in texture, and glides on smoothly. The application is not streaky or patchy. However, I would still suggest to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to using any matte lipstick. Unlike Sleek Matte lipstick, CSP Pure Matt is not streaky on the application, however after an hour or so you will notice it gathering up in the inner lip which looks gross - not appealing at all. I noticed it happening with the lighter shade 'Paradise' and not with the darker one 'Predator'. Compared to Medora Matte lipstick, I find Medora lipsticks a tiny bit more moisturizing, creamy and easy on the application than CSP Pure Matt lipsticks.  Comparatively, 'Predator' has a better staying power than 'Paradise'.

Paradise 107, is a mauvy milky pink shade. A shade that can wash out many skin tones. It is a shade that will look good on a very fair skin tone with pink undertones. However it does look flattering if you use a slight colored gloss over it. Nude shades doesn't wash me out, but shades that have a milky tone to it, can wash many skin tones. As it is a light shade, it starts fading within 2 hours.

Predator 101, is a gorgeous red color - my favorite out of all the reds I own. It is a cool toned red color with blue undertones color, a color that makes your teeth look whiter. A shade that highlights your face without using any makeup. It is a staple color, with which you only need a liner and mascara and you are good to go. Has a better staying power, since it is a red shade and it stains your lips.

Pros:
  • 28 different shades for every skin tone
  • Staying Power
  • Not dry
  • No streaky or patchy application
  • Chic packaging
Cons:
  • Light shade gathers inside the lip area
  • To some it will be the price

Color Studio Pro Pure Matt Lipstick comes in 28 different shades, with a price tag of Rs 750. To see the swatches of other 26 colors click here. You can find the entire range of Color Studio Pro in any leading supermarkets - nationwide. They are also available online on Just4girls.

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, I am going to review the most  requested product after my 2nd Haul post :) Yes, it is Watsons Repairing Treatment Wax.


I went to Naheed Supermarket and found this little jar. I had alot of time that day to go through something for my haircare. I picked up a jar from Boots, which was more like a conditioner to me.

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
