Maybelline Pink Alert Lipstick “POW 3” Review and Swatches

This lipstick is a part of the Pink Alert Range launched by Maybelline last month prior to Women’s Day. An instant hit in the beauty bazaar owing to shades suited to all complexions and affordable price.




The Color: A cool toned fuchsia pink with blue undertones, a flattering shade for fair complexions. It looks neonish on my warm complexion and doesn’t really flatter me, when worn all by itself. I have to make it work actually 🙂 . Go, for it if you have pale complexion and it would look really nice on you.

The texture: Smooth and hydrating and looks glossy on the lips

The pigmentation: It is not opaque and requires layering up , so I would suggest people with lip pigmentation to use a lip pencil beneath.

The lasting: It lasts for unto three hours without any eating or drinking in between.




My Take: A beautiful blue based pink for fair complexions. Do look out for it if you want a great pink lipstick on budget. If you are warn toned , I would suggest shades POW 2 or POW 4 from this range. I recommend it !

Price: INR 375 only

Product Score: 4/5

I have MAC Matchmaster Foundation on Face and Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in “fresh coral” on cheeks.



Product sent by brand but honest review.



P2 Cosmetics Perfect Look Lipliner Review and Swatches

P2 is a famous German drugstore brand and I managed to get few of its products with the help of a friend staying there 🙂 .  Today, I shall review two of their lip liners




The shades : chocolate and cherry.

Chocolate is a deep brown and Cherry is a bright red much similar to Mac’s Russian Red.

The texture, feel and lasting: It has a very smooth texture and feels light on lips . Those who have a dry lip issue, might feel it to dry their lips. It lasts effortlessly for three hours and is a very good base for lipsticks.

The pigmentation: Very much opaque .

left: Chocolate and Right: Cherry

The packaging: It is conveniently packed in  a twist up form that ensures no product wastage.

Summary: Very Good and the only con is the availability.

Price: About 2 Euros

Maybelline Lip Polish “Glam 12” Review and Swatches

So, I am back from my vacation and hope you guys had a great beginning to the New Year !

Maybelline has always taken the innovative route and the latest add is the Maybelline Lip Polishes. You can read  more about them HERE. I am really impressed with these lip paints, and read on for my detailed take on them.



The Color: A Orange Red , very lovely color and a great summer shade especially for day wear.

The Pigmentation: Decently pigmented that can be built up to full coverage. If applied with light hands, it appears as a beautiful stain.

The Texture and Finish: Very light on lips, moisturizing and feels like a balm. The finish is glossy, but it is not at all sticky that is the best thing about it. I do not prefer glosses for their sticky feel, and this one though looks like a gloss, is not at all sticky, which totally justifies its name “lip polish”.

The Staying: Very Good. It wore it for three hours, with a lot of eating and drinking, yet it stayed put with light fading. It gradually fades from glossy shine to a nice stain  after about five hours of wear, if I do not eat in between.




My Take: I am really impressed with these lip polishes, they are moisturizing and stay put for a nice amount of time. Also, they can be easily removed and do not settle as stain on lips. I recommend this to everyone, as there is a shade suited to each complexion. A thumbs up from me!


  1. Hydrates
  2. Good staying power
  3. Non sticky
  4. Weightless on lips
  5. Good shade selection
  6. Easily available


Actually, I couldn’t think of any. One of the best formulations from Maybelline.



Price: INR 450

Product Score: 4.5/5

note: Product sent by brand, but the review is honest to my experience.

Colorbar Lip Liner in “Nude Pink” Review and Swatches

Few days ago, I posted on how to apply lipstick properly here:http://celebratingfeminity.com/2013/01/06/how-to-apply-lipstick-properly-mac-ruby-woo/. Those who have read that post might know that the first step to achieve a beautiful pout is to prime them or prepare them for the color to to be applied. Not all of us have perfect, spotless lips,hence to cover this up the usage of a nude lip liner becomes essential.

Today I am reviewing the “Nude Pink”, a lip liner from Colorbar 🙂

download (1)

The Shade: A nude pink shade with neutral undertones.

The Texture: Optimum combination of hardness and softness, in the sense it applied neat and smooth without being too soft so as to break.

The Pigmentation: Very Good.

My Take: The color is a very much muted, nude pink with enough opacity to cover pigmentation, if any and provide a base for lipstick. One can use this to modify the shape of their lips. if required. I usually use this when I have ample time to prepare my lips and then apply color. On daily basis, I just apply the lipstick and move out 🙂 except reds, when I do make a point to fill out my lips before applying lipstick, A must have color, it could dual up as a lip base too. Also, a great shade to pair with heavy black or deep brown smokey eyes. One con , I feel is it could be drying on lips,  so I advise the usage of lip balm underneath.

Price: INR 325

Summary: Worth buying, if you require a nude lip liner, this be it 🙂 Leaving the dryness factor, I find no cons.

Product Score: 4/5

The shade: A true red

The pigmentation: Good! Comparable to Colorbar lip liners. One stroke is enough to give color.

The Lasting: It last for four hours on the lips and then gradually fades away. Makes red lipsticks last long and prevents them from bleeding.

My take: I am happy with this. It is easily sharpenable and glides on smoothly. I usually use it alone or under my favourite red lipsticks. Do try them out ! You shall like them. I would have preferred it in the retractable form though, its a personal choice.

Tips and Toes Lip Liner in “Coffee Brown” Review and Swatches

Tips and Toes is a brand, which has been demurely present in the Indian market since long and has evolved and changed with passing time. The last faint memory of this brand is in the form of its nail polish remover, which I saw my cousins use when I was a girl getting acquainted with the world of beauty.

After a long time, when in Kolkata, I happened to visit New Market and saw a wide range of this brand left on display in a shop and the nostalgia revived, I bought one.

The Color : A brown with pink undertones.

The Texture: Soft and smooth , but not breakable. Glides on your pout to give a uniform color. Its my MLBB lipliner.

The Lasting: Lasts fairly long, it would not disappoint you.

My Take: I use it to make my lips uniformly colored and as a base. I love it so much that its almost over. A good base for reds and browns, you would definitely like it. Also for the price it comes for it is a steal.

Price: INR 180 two years ago

Product Score: 4/5

I used a pale pink liner from “P2” cosmetics, the lipstick is Colorbar “Oh my Magenta” reviewed here :http://celebratingfeminity.com/2012/04/27/colorbar-velvet-matte-lipstick-in-oh-my-magenta/ and the lip gloss is Revlon Colorburst “Iced Cofee”, reviewed here: http://celebratingfeminity.com/2012/08/22/revlon-colorburst-lipgloss-in-iced-coffee-swatch-and-review/

First , I applied the lip liner and used it to completely fill up my lips, Followed by a bright magenta pink lipstick on top and then added a light layer of a light pink lip gloss. I absolutely love this combination, do try this out.
