Hey doo my lovelies...
How you all doin? Winters are here finally in a big way and from the past two days, it's quite breezy. So I've been enjoying hot soup, crispy fried noodles, hot chocolate and loads of teas, alongwith crispy bhel puri... like mad. I just loooooovvveee winters so much :-)
I am totally loving it because this is my first winters where I am wearing really dark colours on my lips. My reds, fuschias and plums are out and being worn in full way.
Am sure you all are also loving the winter season and trying out dark lips. I truly love this trend for winters. I have started opening up to red lips (although red is my favourite colour) and have a good collection of reds now (will share that soon :-)
So today I am reviewing one of my recent buys, which has become my favourite red lipcolour - the Bourjois Levres Contour Lip Liner in shade Rouge Seduction.
Price : Rs 295 for 1.14 gms (I find this a good deal)
What the brand says : High Definition and Long-Wearing lip liner for ultra lip comfort. Levres Contour Lip Pencil's ultra-soft khol tip draws a smooth and precise lip contour to line the lips and prevents your lipstick from running for hours on end!
Enriched with mineral and plant pigments (rose and green tea) it is good for your skin. The formula is easy to blend, comfortable and smoothly glides onto the lips, leaving a soft velvety finish. Available in a wide range of shades that match the Sweet Kiss Lipstick colours.
Remember I told you about the Bourjois haul I did recently? This was one of it. Me and Maggie were out for a fun day when I saw this lip pencil I wanted to try it out. While I just swatched it, Maggie applied it as a full blow red lip colour. And man! the moment I saw it on the lips, I was like "Yeah, I want it like crazy..." ;-)
Incidentally, the SA had a tough time trying to find a fresh piece. So went on to buy some other stuff. But when we came back after about 30 minutes, she had not only managed to find this colour, but also informed me of an on-store offer where I could get another lipliner at just half the price :-) I was so happy and ended up buying another nude lipliner, which is perfect for those lovely nude glosses :)
Anyways, so coming back to the review. The lip pencil is a lovely deep red colour with a nice pink undertones, so it will suit almost all complexions. The wooden pencil has the same colour on the pencil and the plastic cap as the shade, which I really love. This makes it really easy to spot. It is a sharpenable pencil, but does not sharpen very smoothly, which I feel is the only con :-(
The colour, when worn full blown, looks super sexy. The texture is more matte but while applying, it does not tug your lips. However, if no lipbalm is used underneath this when being used as a complete lipstick, it will settle in your fine lines.
The colour has an amazing staying power and is superbly pigmented. After some 5 odd hours, light snacking and even a full meal, it is still there although the intensity decreases by barely 20 per cent :-) Even after 7 hours, there is a lovely deep stain which goes away only with a good remover.
Here is the swatch of the colour.
See... isn't it beautiful? I love wearing this alone or at times, under my favourite red lipsticks and it makes them even more beautiful.
And ladies beware, for here comes the LOTD ;-) Am really learning to take these and am actually copying some of the best LOTD queens like my lovely Jyo, Lishiiii and Agni... and almost all others... ^-^
Overall, I just love the colour and the pigmentation. I am going to buy more from this range and will definitely recommend this one :-) Hope you all really like my LOTD.
