Maybelline launched Party Girl collection last year towards the end and I have been meaning to review them on my blog ever since. This is such a stunning collection and anyone who loves glitter polish will go bonkers. I myself had to control myself from buying too many shades (I only picked 4 :P) I will review the shades I have and here I am reviewing my favorite shade from the collection : Tequila Sunrise 112
Pssst! My love for Glitter nailpolish can be seen HERE 😀
Price: Rs 175
Tequila Sunrise 112 is a beautiful rose gold-pinkish nail polish with rose gold hexagonals and glitter. The nailpolish has golden shimmer which gives this naipolish a beautiful rose gold sheen. This nail polish is loaded with the glitters which remain suspended and does not settle down at the bottom of the bottle. The glitter does not tug and the nail polish settles into a smooth finish.
The packaging is standard packaging of their Colorshow nailpolish. It comes in cylindrical glass bottle with black cap. The shade name is engraved on top of the cap. The brush is decent and picks enough nailpolish for one coat. It takes 2 coats for full color intensity as one coat is slightly sheer, but it is high on golden shimmer so you can wear one coat also.
The shade is more golden and light pink as compared too swatches below which are more pink and less gold.
Tequila Sunrise 112 being glitter nailpolish, its removal can be quite a pain, especially if you layer this polish a lot. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE
The tip wear/chipping starts after 3-4 days, which is quite ok, as I dont expect these polish to be super long lasting.
Overall, this is a beautiful rose gold glitter nailpolish and if you love glitter and if you love the color rose gold, you should definitely check it out.
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 😀
L’Oreal Paris launched this new range of nail polish last year – Color Riche L’Huile nail polish. Although this range has been available outside India for some time, it was launched in India recently. There is a wide variety of shades to choose from. Here I am reviewing a gorgeous purple shade ~ Violet Vendome 332.
Price: Rs 399
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche L’Huile nail polish Violet Vendome review
The packaging is very attractive and one of its kind. It comes in a super pretty cut-glass cuboidal bottle with shade name sticked on top. The bottle feels luxurious in hand. I got attracted to the packaging only when I spotted it from far and decided to purchase atleast one shade 😛
Violet Vendome 332 is a beautiful violet color with a perfect mix of purple and pink. This is such a vibrant shade which will work in spring as well as Fall in my opinion. (Check out another great purple nailpolish HERE). Even though Violet Vendome is a bright shade, it should still work across skin tones. The finish is highly glossy. The texture is smooth and creamy and the nailpolish is pigmented, although it takes 2-3 coats for full color intensity (3 for me as with 2 coats my nail tips were visible). These nail polish are fast drying, but I recommend applying thin coats. I am highly impressed with the brush. There are ridges on the stem holding the brush which makes it drip resistant. It is U-shape and perfectly wide to cover the nails in a single stroke without going outside the edges. I love nailpolish with a good brush. The USP of this range of nailpolish is that they have an oil-infused formulation which delivers deep, vibrant color and intense shine.
The glossiness of this nailpolish stays for 2-3 days. However, I could start to see tip wear next day onwards, which is a bummer. The chipping started after 4-5 days but you can always prolong the wear time by using a top coat.
Overall, I think these polishes are worth to have a look at. The packaging is really attractive, there is a large spectrum of shades to choose from, the pigmentation is good and the finish is highly glossy. The brush is amazing and makes the nailpolish application a dream, especially around cuticles. The texture, formula and finish is top notch.
Maybelline has an entire range on gold themed nail colors: Gold Digger Collection, and I am reviewing a beautiful peach color nailpolish from this range ~ Gilded Rose 903
I have reviewed the first three shades in the pic above HERE, HERE and HERE
Price: Rs 145
Gilded Rose 903 is a peach colored nail polish with sugar texture.
It comes in classic Colorshow packaging: cylindrical transparent bottle with black cap and name engraved on top. The brush is decent but not great. Gilded Rose is a peach colored nail polish with peach and golden shimmer. This is not as bling shade as some of the OTHERS in this collection, but it is a good shade if you like subtle colors. However, this shade can make hands look dark, so try it at the counters before you purchase.
People confuse this shade of Gold Digger collection with ‘Pink Champagne’ shade of the previous Glitter Mania collection. There is a difference between the two shades, the latter being more blingy and rose gold in color, and Gilded rose is peachy in color with toned down bling. Also, there is no chunky glitter in Gilded Rose. The texture however, is the same. Personally, I like Pink Champagne shade more.
This is not a top coat, and it takes 2-3 coats to build the color. The tip wear starts after 3-4 days. Being a glitter nailpolish, its removal is quite a pain. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE
Overall, this is a good color if you like subtle colors with toned down bling. This is a great office appropriate color in my opinion. But it may make hands look dark, so try it on your nails first.
Maybelline has an entire range on gold themed nail colors: Gold Digger Collection, and I am reviewing a stunning top coat from this range ~ Gold Gluttony 905
I have reviewed the first two shades in the pic above HERE and HERE
Price: Rs 145
Gold Gluttony is a transparent nail polish with chunks of gold flakes of different sizes. This is a top coat and looks great on both light as well as dark base colors. This is a no-fuss nail polish which can take your manicure up a notch in no time.
It comes in classic Colorshow packaging: cylindrical transparent bottle with black cap and name engraved on top. The brush is decent but not great. I think the brush could have been wider to pick such chunky gold leaves effectively. Sometimes, I am left with only 1-2 gold specks in one coat and so have to place the gold flakes individually on each nail. Also, using multiple coats to load up on the bling makes it gloopy and slow to dry.
Other than that, it is a great nail polish to bling up the manicure. I always wanted a nailpolish like this- gold chunky leaf glitter, and this one is a great budget option to have.

Colorbar launched their range of Liquid matte lipsticks- Kiss Proof Lip stain a few months back. Liquid mattifying lipsticks are so in these days and Colorbar’s is the first one I picked. I am reviewing a gorgeous red shade – Hollywood 001 here.
Price: Rs 900 (6.5 ml)
Colorbar Kiss Proof Lip stains come in a silver cardboard packaging with a color-coded sticker on top. The packaging has all the details about the product. The lip stain tube is silver in color and made up of plastic with silver-colored screw cap. The tube is fairly long and has a transparent band along the length of the tube to show the color of the lip stain. This see through window comes in very handy when you have multiple shades of this range. The applicator is doe foot applicator with a hole in middle, which helps in holding more product. The applicator picks up enough product for one swipe. The texture of the lip stain is creamy and is very pigmented. One swipe is enough for full color intensity. The lip stain feels glossy on application but it settles down to matte finish within a minute.
The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly.
The lip stain 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.
Hollywood 001 is a classic red color lip stain which will work across skin tones. If you are looking for a true red color, do check this shade. It will brighten up any complexion, no doubt.
The lip stain feels comfortable and light weight. It dries down to super matte finish which does not bother initially, but I tend to crave for a lip balm after a few hours as it makes the lips very dry.
This lip stain does not transfer but I see it flaking upon touching with fingers.
The lip stain settles into fine lines when it starts to fade after 4-5 hours.
There are 8 shades in this range as of now. I wish it had more colors to choose from.
If you are looking for long lasting true matte lipstick in red color, do check this one out. It feels light weight and is superbly pigmented. You can get full color intensity in one swipe itself. Hollywood shade is a classic red color which will work on all skin tones. Colorbar kiss proof lip stain is quite comfortable to wear, but you may need a lip balm after a few hours. This range has only 8 shades as of now and some bright and dark colors would be a good addition to this range. Overall, I am in love with this lip stain, so much so that I have already purchased another color from the range 😀
Maybelline launched Gold Digger Collection in their Colorshow nail polish a while back. I will be reviewing a few of their shades in a series of posts. I had reviewed a beautiful top coat from this range- Bling Thing 902 earlier and here I am reviewing a gorgeous silvery gold color from this range ~ Oh-My-Gold! 904.
Price: Rs 145
Oh-My-Gold 904 is silvery gold nail polish with gold specks and glitter. The golden glitter and specks get masked by the silvery polish which gives a muted shimmer effect to the whole look, which I love! This is a metallic nail polish, which is neither silver nor golden, but somewhere in between.
One coat is opaque enough, but I apply 2 coats anyways. It dries fairly quick.
The glitter and golden specks are not too out there and gives a beautiful diffused shine.
The packaging is standard packaging of their Colorshow nailpolish. It comes in cylindrical glass bottlewith black cap. The shade name is engraved on top of the cap. The brush is decent and picks enough nailpolish for one coat. The glitter in this nailpolish remain suspended and does not settle down at the bottom of the bottle. The glitter does not tug and the nail polish settles into a smooth finish.
I am right handed, so my polishes start to chip early on my right hand. I could see minor tip wear from this polish starting next day on my right hand (which happens with almost ALL the nailpolishes) and proper chipping in 4 days. But nail polish on my left hand stayed put for 5 days (!), and so I am impressed with the staying power of this polish.
Oh My God 904 being glitter nailpolish, its removal can be quite a pain, especially if you layer this polish a lot. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE
Overall, Oh-My-Gold 904 is a beautiful silvery-gold color with muted shimmer and specks which gives a beautiful overall diffused shine. If you wear metallic colors like silver and gold, do check this one out. I love this shade and will definitely repurchase it.
