Hello everybody !!
Festive and wedding season is in full swing in India now. Discounts, gifts and offers are going on in every store and online shopping sites. What better time to increase our makeup collection than now 🙂
During Durga Puja last month, I bought a lot of makeup products.You can check out my Durga Puja makeup haul + review post if not already.
Lipstick is one such beauty product which you can never have enough 😀 😛 So this Diwali I thought of buying some new lippies which I was eyeing for a long time.
I bought these 3 lip products :
- Chambor extreme wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick – Desire 433 (INR 845 for 6ml)
- FACES Canada Glam On Lip Gloss – Deep Blush 08 (INR 499 for 7.5ml)
- FACES Canada Glam On Lip Gloss – Citrus Dazzle 05 (INR 499 for 7.5ml)
Chambor extreme wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick – Desire 433 :
I always wanted to have a deep red matte liquid lipstick. I feel this is the most essential makeup item you can have during a festival / wedding. I chose red because it is such an universal color that it suits any skintone and any outfit. It can take your makeup from drab to glam. You can go for a smokey eye or simple eyes, a red lip lifts your makeup by itself.
This range of Chambor lipstick is more exciting as they are matte and transferproof. They are ideal for a special night out / wedding / party. There are a lot of color options available in this lipstick range. Majority of the colors are very pretty and can go with any skin tone.
The packaging is very elegant with transparent glass body, round in the corners flat on upper & lower part. It really looks like a high end luxury brand product. The glass case is quite sturdy and the cap fits tightly which is good for traveling.
Since the body is transparent you can easily identify which color you want if you have many similar ones. The product true to its claim is really transfer proof once it dries down completely. Since the applicator is quite big, enough product comes out in one go. Also a single swipe gives you a opaque intense pigment. I only have to dip it twice to cover my entire lips and get uniform color all over.
The applicator is almost flat and flexible. But those of you who have very thin lips, I will suggest you to use a lip brush. The head is quite big compared to other liquid lipsticks and so it may be difficult for you to get a neat look.
Especially if you are in a hurry / not comfortable with applying liquid lipstick, please use a lip brush especially if you are working like a bold color like this red one.
The swatch below is when I just applied the product in my hand. As you can see it is a beautiful red color, perfect for wedding / festival. This is even a great color to wear on your wedding day. The color remains shiny for few minutes and dries down matte after some time. While you are applying you can layer it up to get an even application.
Please scrub your lips and use a good lip balm before applying this lipstick. Since it is a matte transferproof lipstick, it will dry your lips after few hours. Also never reapply another layer of this if your lips are already chapped, it will enhance all your cracks.
I will say this may not be your everyday wear lip product, but it is perfect for that special look / special day. This color is particularly meant for evening makeup.
Rating : 4/5
I love this lipstick so much. Though it does dry my lips, but it can be overlooked since I will apply it only on special occasions. I may not repurchase this shade in particular, but I will surely try other color options in this range. Highly recommend !!
FACES Canada Glam On Lip Gloss – Deep Blush 08 :
I loved the packaging when I saw this at the Faces counter. The rectangular glass body with the gold lid looks very beautiful. The transparent body makes the shade easier to identify. The glass is quite sturdy and the lid fits tightly, so it is good for travel.
The doe foot applicator is quite good for application of this gloss. If you want to just add a bit of shimmer to your lipstick, then add single layer with a light hand and glide over your lipstick. If you want to only wear this gloss / want more color pay off, then dab it like close dots on your lips. One swipe gives you a lip topper like shimmer, but for more color pay off you have to dip it few times.
Compared to other lip glosses available in market, this has comparatively more pigment. Also for the price point the gloss is really smooth and non sticky. I wore this for an entire day during Durga Puja with only a slight touch up after meals.
Particularly this shade is quite unique. Its a deep pink color with blue shimmer. It looks lovely on its own as well as over another lipstick.

These are very good quality and you get them at a reasonable price. I like them a lot. Definitely recommend you to try for yourself !!
FACES Canada Glam On Lip Gloss – Citrus Dazzle 05 :
This shade is more reflective compared to the rest. The color pay off is not much but it gives a orange tint with a very blingy golden shimmer. This is ideal as a lip topper if you want to add an extra shine to your lip. Again a smooth non sticky formula similar to the other one. You can also use this shade during daytime with a light makeup on its own.
You can see the swatches of both lip glosses below. I like both of them equally. This range has lot of other shade options from which you can choose your favorite.
I hope this review helped you. Let me know in the comment section if you have tried any of these products.
Also let me know which other product you want me to review next.
