I bought a few nailpolish from this brand along with an amazing wine colored lipstick – Note Mattemoist Dark Wine 307

Note Mattemoist lipstick Dark Wine 307 review
Note Mattemoist lipstick comes in all black swivel up tube with brand name written in silver on the tube. The shade name is stickered at the bottom. The lipstick tube is housed in a cardboard packaging which has all the details. The cap of the tube click shuts tightly. The lipstick bullet is slanted and easy to apply around the corners and edges. The lipstick has faint vanilla fragrance.
Dark Wine 307 is a beautiful brown toned wine color with creamy finish. This is one shade which instantly brightens up the face. Sometime when I am lazy I do not apply any other makeup product (not even eyeliner/kajal) but only this lipstick and I am good to go! Dark Wine has warm tones and it will suit most Indian skintones.
These are not complete matte, but moist matte. It does not dry completely to give crazy matte finish. Instead, it settles to a comfortable and moisturizing matte finish. This lipstick contains Macadamia oil and Vitamin E. The pigmentation is amazing and gives full color intensity in one swipe. It does not settle into fine lines.
Being creamy in finish, it does transfer on the cups, glasses etc. It stays put for 5-6 hours with light meal and drinks but starts to fade with heavy/oily meal. Even after it starts to lighten, the stain is dark enough to be fooled with a proper lipstick.
This will make a gorgeous winter shade. I can’t stop wearing this in summers also =D
Overall, Note Mattemoist lipstick is one amazing product at its price. It scores in every department. It is highly pigmented, has amazing texture, lasts long and comfortable on the lips. Dark Wine shade is a beautiful brown toned wine color which instantly brightens up the face and will suit most Indian skintones. These are not complete matte but moist matte and feels moisturizing on the lips. These are completely worth the money. I will definitely repurchase this. Highly recommended!
Matte lips are so IN these days and I can’t help looking for lipsticks saying ‘matte’ at the brand counters. Whenever there is a new matte lipstick in town, I HAVE to check it. I have Chambor extreme wear Transfer proof liquid lipstick with me for a while now and I like it so much that i recently bought another gorgrous shade from this range: 432 Red Haute
I have reviewed another gorgeous matte lipstick HERE
Price: Rs 845 for 6 ml
Chambor Extreme wear transfer proof liquid lipstick review
Chambor Extreme wear transfer proof liquid lipstick comes in a blue cardboard packaging with a shade number sticker on top. The packaging has all the details about the product. The lipstick tube packaging is flat and sleek with black screw cap. The liquid lipstick has elongated applicator which is easy to use. The applicator picks up enough product for one swipe. Being transparent, the shades are easy to spot if you have multiple shades. The shade number is sticker-ed on bottom of the tube. They do not have names to their shades, only numbers.
Texture wise it is very creamy and highly pigmented giving opaque coverage in single swipe. Freshly applied, the texture looks creamy but it settles to true matte finish which does not budge. It is impressively long lasting (6 hours including meals and snacks), however, there is slight fading from inner rims when you eat something oily. It does not feel rubbery with touch up.
The liquid lipstick is highly pigmented which leaves room for errors while working along the outlines of the lips. I use a lip liner as I can never apply it properly.
Shade 432 Red Haute is a beautiful brown toned red color (earthy red/ brick red) which will flatter all skin tones. This is one of a kind shade and you should check it out if you like brownish red colors. Also, this will make a gorgeous office wear shade.
These lipsticks are comfortable to wear and feel lightweight. It dries down to super matte finish and does not make the lips feel parched. Do exfoliate the lips before applying any matte lipstick as it will cling to the dry bits of the lips accentuating them even more.
If you are looking for long lasting true matte lipstick in brown-red color, do check this one out. It is superbly pigmented, gives opaque coverage in one swipe. Shade 432 (Red Haute) is a beautiful earthy red color which will work on all skin tones. Chambor extreme wear liquid lipstick feels lightweight and is quite comfortable to wear. Overall, I am in love with these lipticks, so much so that this is my second shade from this range and I will definitely repurchase it when it gets over 😀
Street wear launched these super affordable lipsticks a while back in a vibrant range of shades and I have a few Streetwear Color Rich Ultra moist lipsticks with me. Instead of clubbing them all in one post, I will do a detailed post for each shade. In this post I am reviewing Spell Bound – a beautiful earthy rose color which will suit most Indian skintone.
Price: Rs 180
These lipsticks come in cute packaging featuring pop art. The lid is transparent through which the color of bullet can be seen. The shade name is written at the bottom. But I hate that these lipsticks don’t swivel down all the way and some part peeks out of the bullet. This will definitely lead to nicks and cuts on the lipstick while you put the lid on, no matter how careful you are 😦
Spellbound is a beautiful rose pink color with brownish undertones. It looks like a brown lipstick when you look at the bullet but it transforms into a beautiful earthy rose color on the lips. It is a natural pink-brown color which does not look too out there. This is a great color for everyday office wear and it will suit many skin tones. It will work across different age groups as well, especially those who like soft, natural colors. I gave this lipstick to my mother and she loves the color. This shade is neither too bright nor too dull – just the perfect subtle shade.
These lipsticks smell of vanilla which reminds me of MAC lipsticks. The texture is smooth and creamy and very comfortable to wear. It doesnot feel too heavy or too drying. The pigmentation is sheer on first coat but can be built up. It lasts 3-4 hours on me without meals after which it leaves a soft pink stain.
These lipsticks offer great quality for such cheap price (Rs 180). You are definitely getting your money’s worth, especially when these days even drugstore brands are charging huge price for lipsticks. With a great variety to choose from, college girls or makeup newbies should definitely check them out.
This may look brownish in swatch but it transforms into beautiful brown-pink shade on lips.
This lipstick does not swivel all the way down and this much lipstick always peeks out of the tube
Left one is bare lips and right one is Spell Bound
Overall, for the price they come in, these lipsticks are a real steal! They offer very good quality for such drugstore brand. They will specially attract college girls. Spellbound is a beautiful natural earthy pink. If you like such natural, everyday color, do check this one out.
