Red War - Red Lip colors for Valentines Day!! #RabeeyahsRedWar

Yesterday, I asked a question on my Facebook & Twitter about what's next that's coming on my blog. I thought it was an easy question, but it wasn't that easy. Only one of you answered it right, and that person is Zubia Rizvi. Congratulations, Zubia! Please inbox me your details.
Red Lipsticks for Valentines Day
No girls, it isn't something about L'Oreal Paris Red Matte collection but, the reds I own and the reds for Valentines Day!! There is a perfect red for each one of you to pick, be it Valentines day or not.

Let's see perfect reds for each one of you on this valentines day. Let's start with my favorite out of all.

1. Color Studio Pro Matt Lipstick "Predator"
It's my favorite red out of the lot that I own, because it is a perfect red shade I like and looks flattering on every skin tone. I've always been complimented or asked if I am wearing Ruby Woo by MAC. Yes, it's a perfect dupe for Ruby Woo. See the detailed review on it HERE.

2. MAC Matte Lipstick "La Vie En Rouge"
Even though I received this baby a week back, it was love at first sight. When I swatched it, it looked deeper pink, but, when I put it on, it is a beautiful red with pink hues. It might appear differently on every skin tone I think. Even though it's a matte formula, but it's creamy and non-drying, and stay put for hours. 
Comes with a price tag of $16, but if you order online it might cost you from 1900 to 2400 depending on which page you buy from. I got for PKR 1950 from Vardah Asif.

3. Essence Lipstick "Adorable Matt!"
Adorable Matt is a mixture of deep red, hint of pink and hues of berry. When applied, it shows it's not that red red but definitely a sibling of a good red. It's a matte formula, but non-drying. Stay put 5 to 6 hours.
Price: PKR 580

4. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick "Fire & Ice"
Fire & Ice is a bright true red color, the blood red. It's an orange undertone red. It's a creme finish lipstick, glides on effortless and stay put 3 to 5 hours. What I don't like about orange toned red or any other lipsticks is, it can make your teeth appear yellow.

5. Covergirl Lipstick "Hot Passion"

It was my first ever red lipstick. And, I was in love with it for years till I bought another red. I still love it, because it appears true red on my lips.
Detailed review on it HERE

6. Makeup Atelier Paris "Vermillion"

As the name says, it's a bright red with orange undertones. It's a liquid lipstick, sticks to your lips and they feel like a bed of velvet, like literally. Even though it's not my kind of wearable red color, but the feel of it is amazing. It doesn't come off unless you cleanse it properly. Doesn't crack or make your lips dry. A perfect bright pout for Valentines day for those who prefer this red.

7. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick "Love That Red"

Love that Red is a bright red, with blue undertones and pink hues. For some it might appear pinkish red, whereas on some it might appear deep blood red. It is a creme finish lipstick, which helps it glide on effortlessly. Since it has blue undertones, it looks flattering on most of the skin tones and doesn't make your teeth look yellow.

8. MUA Lipstick "Shade 13"

MUA Shade 13 is another tricky deep red with blue undertones. For some it appears maroon whereas on some it appears true to its color which it shows in the tube. It is the cheapest lipstick out of the lot and I actually love the color pay off and the finish. It is creme finish pigmented lipstick, and stays put 3 to 4 hours.
Price: PKR 200

9. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm stain "Romantic"
Last but not the at least, and my all time favorite and every day lip color. It doesn't even count in this list. It is on the top. It's a lip stain as you know, and is a great everyday color to give your lips a natural color, if applied lightly or you can build it up. I love it sheer, and how it stains my lips with additional points of the minty smell and taste (NO, I don't eat it).

That's all folks for the REDS in my life till now. And, I don't plan to buy anymore reds. What are your favorite reds that you own? Do share with us!!

Lots of LOVE

  11. What an amazing post, Rabiyah! Loved the swatches. I literally stared at them for a few minutes before procedding to read your description about them. Quick question, where would be Makeup Atelier's liquid lipstick available from?
    Appreciate the solid effort - that too on Valentine's DaY ^_^
    I have been thinking, swatching, delaying a post of my Reds - mainly because I am always getting more and more of them. They've gotten so similar now that even I find it harder to spot the undertone difference.

    1. Thank you so much, Bia!! Thank you for the appreciations <3

      For the Makeup Atelier, it's available at Academy of Aesthetics. You can get in touch with Wafa Khan for that purpose :)

  12. I love the color studio matt range! I have one red/maroon shade, cant think of the name, but its super flattering! Its dark, but not too dark, just perfect haha

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

[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.
