My First Lipstick :) Review & Swatches

...... and second! :):)

Okay so i just went and got my first lipstick ever! :D [I know I'm a late bloomer!!] from TBS- the new colour glide lip colour. My mum is a huge TBS fan and I tagged along while shopping at GVKOne, Shoppers Stop. I never really paid any attention to the make up available at TBS till Rads send me her moonlight luster. you can check it out here.
So anyway, I've been wanting my very first lippie and its been hard! everyone who is used to just some tinted lipbalm would agree with me. ( Or am I the only one? :-S)

Here is Zorro with the lippies-
he just refused to pose!!:( i dont think he liked those.

lippies (- Rs 575 for 4grams of the product)

and this SA at TBS counter is damn sweet! i told her about this and she resolved to find me my first lippie!:D [and second]. i went on too check out everything pink as usual.. but then, something else caught my eye. It was this coral/orange coloured lippie that is definitely MLBB. :):) i got it!!
They dont have names. :( but numbers. (actually, the website does show some names, but thats too confusing. doesn't have the orange one and the pink colour is listed as orange, so i really dont know)

The first one is no.63 (E305WB) - the orange-coral one and heres the lipstick, and swatch. :)

my first lippie. :D
thats 2 coats, so it is pretty sheer

Colour 2- no. 48 (E024WA)

This looked good on me in the store lighting, but somehow, i feel it looks whitish on my face otherwise.
this has a golden sheen to it, (shimmer would be too big too. :P).. i just have to get used to it or pair it up with gloss as Rati said. :)

see the golden sheen to it??

Okay, so here is what the website says-
Moisturizing lip colour that feels velvety smooth. With light-diffusers for younger-looking lips. Check out the 19 lip-tastic shades in our stores now!

And here is what i think of it-

The Good-
  • These are pretty sheer, so for a first timer like me.. i dont feel too conscious! (i dont know if anyone feels like this- I'm just weird! bah!)
  • The shade selection - 19 colours.. not too big, but then, there is something there for almost everyone.
  • The colours are closely similar in a batch, so if you like a colour, you will find something for yourself from what they have to offer.
  • I like the packaging. cute. :)
  • Tight cap and all..
  • Its TBS- no animal testing. :):)
  • Its TBS- contains (from the website)-          Marula oil - Is a very effective moisturiser that also helps to condition the skin over time. Also provides essential fatty acids that help to repair the skin's moisture barrier, thus helping to restore moisture, smoothness and suppleness.                                                                                                                                                                       -Organic beeswax - Moisturises and helps to condition the skin. Acts as a barrier that helps to seal in moisture. Helps to keep product texture consistent when used over time.                                                                                      -Grapeseed oil - Is very rich in essential fatty acids that help to repair the skin's moisture barrier, thus helping to restore moisture, smoothness and suppleness.
The Bad-
  •  okay so these are not moisturizing.
  • these settle into fine lines like crazy!!
  • my lips were not dry or chapped, but it still looked like they were. :( i dont like that!!
  • these certainly dont glide on like velvet.
  • for how sheer these lipsticks are, these feel surprisingly heavy on my lips.
  • no complete ingredients list- i know lipstick who knows.. but when you are telling us about what "natural and good" ingredients these contain, why leave out the rest?
  • i dont get the slick feeling on my lips, feels like it is stuck to my  lips, but my lips dont feel sticky when pressed together either. :P
These have some fragrance in it, i dont really have an issue with that but LOTS of people i know do!!

~ These are the first lipsticks i own, but certainly not the first i wore- so i think i know what i'm talking about..                :P

might get the orange one again, but not if i find a similar shade somewhere else. :)
