Loreal Moist Matte Lipstick “Spring Rosette” Review and Swatches

These lipsticks were launched as a part of the Cannes Collection earlier this year. The range has a whole plethora of shades to suit most complexions. The shade “Lincoln Rose” was supposedly worn by Aishwarya Rai at her red carpet appearances to the film festival. The lipsticks are enclosed in side a rose gold outer case , which make them look elegant and rich and one can own at least one from this range.




The Color: A very beautiful shade of cool  pink with coral undertones. It looks more pink on me though. The color would  flatter fair to wheatish complexions with aplomb and might run the risk of looking neon on duskier skins.

The Texture: Ultra light, silky  and smooth, and can be worn without  any lip balm at times. It doesn’t accentuate the fine lines of the lips, but I would advice proper exfoliation if you have chapped and dry lips. It has better texture than MAC retro-matte lipsticks.

The Pigmentation: Whoa! one swipe and you are done 🙂 , too much building up can make this particular shade appear cakey.

The Lasting: Very good, without fading for four hours and even after that you have a conspicuous amount of color left.






What more do I have to say 🙂 , a great lipstick ! Highly Recommended!

To sum up…


  1. Long lasting
  2. Superior pigmentation
  3. Smooth texture
  4. Non- drying
  5. silky finish


  1. The bullet is soft and it is better to store it in fridge, if the weather is hot to avoid melting/ breakage
  2. Might be Expensive.




Product Score: 4.5/5

Price: INR 899

Available easily and even online.

Reader Query: How to Choose Correct Make-up

Pallavi Agicha asks …………

Hey tanmayee I’m lik a realy big fan of us. Love the way u wear ua make up. I v actualy followd all of your reviews on ‘jus for girls’ n its helpd me a lot. I jus need a lill help fm u bt. Weneva I wear make up it lands up lookin powdery. help. I’m an amateur wen it cums to makeup so hav jus been usin it the way mom does. 
I use garnier bb cream ten maybelline dream matte mouse ten the eye make up the lip make up n cover girl compact at d end. I don’t no y it alws jus lands up lookin powdery. Hw to get tat shiny creamy look n nt d powdery caked look?? Pls guide me. Thanx



Thanks a lot Pallavi for your sweet words and that you find my posts helpful . This is a great encouragement for me as a beauty blogger 🙂 .

First of all my question is which Maybelline dream mousse you use? Do you use the liquid foundation airbrush finish ??

Secondly, It is very important to know your skin type before going forward with make-up or anything beauty related. If you have dry skin, a moisturizing liquid foundation would suit you well else if it tends towards being oily, you could use a foundation which is matte finish and lends a more matte look. Also it is very important to moisturize your face before applying makeup. This would help the make-up get absorbed better and lend a dewy finish.

So basically what is your skin type? normal to oily ?? or normal to dry?

I always use a moisturizer, mostly I use baby lotion before starting with putting anything else. Then I apply a stick foundation/concealer like Maybelline BB Stick and then blend it properly followed by light swipe of compact powder with a powder brush.. If I wish to go for heavier coverage, I apply Maybelline Dream matte mousse foundation airbrush finish  on top the BB stick and then set it with powder.

It is very important to choose a foundation color close to your skin tone, and blend it properly. you can use your finger-tips or a foundation brush, preferably after wetting it with water/rose water.

Hope this helps you 🙂 and do drop further queries on the comments section.





Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse Liquid Foundation, Airbrush Finish Review

Well yes, Finally a foundation that is within a decent price range, from a reputed brand, offering excellent finish and coverage, which photographs well too! A complete foundation with almost no cons, within your budget. I have been using this in almost all of my makeup looks that I post here, the forte being it photographs really nice without leaving any whitish cast or ghostly look.

The shade : Pure Beige, medium 2 , just disappears on my skin 🙂

The packaging: It comes in a pump dispenser which can be turned to lock and open.

The texture and finish: Mousse like liquid, seems like a lot of air bubbles has been trapped in. Light and smooth, blends miraculously well and disappears into your skin.  Though, you have to get a shade closest to your skin tone, this rule applies to all foundations universally 🙂

The lasting : Lasts effortlessly on my combination skin for 6 to 8 hours. I am happy!

The coverage: It provides medium coverage which can be built up. Fits my requirements perfectly.Also, it works as a good eye shadow primer 🙂 when I use this, I also prime my eyes with this. So, its hassle free, once product for all face over !

The right image shows, how it covers  the fine lines on my hand.

My Experience : So I have been using this since last five months and I am so so satisfied ! A all in one product, which covers up minor flaws, and also acts as a great eye lid primer. Its smooth and very easy to work with, and only one pump full is enough to cover my whole face, including the eye lids. Yes, a very small amount is more than enough. Blends effortlessly to impart a smooth base , which looks dewy and airbrushed 🙂 . Its not that matte finish and I love it for this, lends a beautiful dewy look to the face. This did not break me out, and is not at all oily for my  combination skin, though girls with very oily skin might find it bit greasy. I definitely recommend this!

Price: INR 575 for 30 ml

Summary:  A complete foundation, that does what a foundation is supposed to do. It lends a perfect natural, airbrushed look to the skin and covers minor flaws. Acts a eye lid primer too 🙂 . Though it may not be a great coverage foundation for those requiring heavy coverage. I am happy with its deliverance and price.

Product Score : 5/5



Faces Lip Liner “True Red” Review and Swatches

Faces is a well acclaimed Canadian brand which makes really good stuffs, on budget ! They also have a wide range of skin care cosmetics. Recently, I got one lip liner and a body wash from them. Those who are in Bangalore, can find exclusive Faces store at Phoenix Market City Mall. Today, I shall review the lip liner.

Lip liners allow precise application of lipsticks and help them last longer.

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.

I have always wanted to own a Coastal Scents brush set, not to mention the good name of their tools in the virtual world. So, during the recent Black Friday sale, I placed an order with them after a lot of struggle with their then jerky website due to over load of users trying to avail the sale.

So I ordered the following items:

  1.  A 12 piece brush set
  2. A Empty 12 hot pot palette
  3. One hot pot – shade “edgy eggplant”
  4. The pink hot pot came as a free gift.

As of now only the pictures. I am highly impressed by their service. Each of the items, reached safe and also within 10 days of ordering. I am really impressed.
