Oriflame Studio Artist Illuma Flair in Hot Pink Review, Swatches, FOTD

Sometimes, life puts you in a fix. Like, you have this super easy yet common sense based subject's test tomorrow first thing in the morning, and you have this favorite lipstick screaming for attention through the wooden doors of your cupboard. Its the question of self respect. One mind says, 'Namita, they are gonna ask you relations and Modus Tollens tomorrow, not how pink your pink lipstick is. DON'T WASTE TIME!'. Another mind says, 'Aaww c'mon! Just an hour (and another, may be). Pose up baby, pout! 8)'

We all know who won know? *evil grin from evil mind* Ssshh!!

Okay, so mumma gifted this to me for no reason.Ya know, when mom is being all nice and generous and gives you everything that you eye? That phase 8) I'll show you my posey poses now? 8) *Not self obsessed at all!*

Before that, let me review it for you mere mortals! 8)

Product: Lipstick
Brand: Oriflame
Range: Studio Artist Illuma Flair
Shade: Hot Pink
Code: 22868
Cost: Rs.349/- (Varies every month)
Quantity: 4 g *Like we ever empty any lipstick :P*

The lipstick comes in this black plastic casing with a touch of silver at the,well, metal-like parts :D You can't find the shade from anywhere, very unfriendly ;) Sturdy cap, travel friendly #Yawn.

The name is a complete misnomer, I tell ya. Hot pinks are supposed to be Hotchh! Like In Your Face Hot! Which this is notch! *Okay, lame* Though it looks all pinky and scary in the tube, it goes on as a nice hint of pink on the lips. Ya know, I am a blushing girl in the garden of roses, waiting for my hone waala pati mahaashay types of pink :P *Those of you that didn't follow, it means, 'I am a blushing girl in the garden of roses, waiting for my fiance :D*
See for yourself!

Pretty know? :)

It doesn't have shimmer,glides on like butter. Staying power is pretty good too, three hours without eating, drinking, kissing. Even when it fades, it leaves a lip balm like tint. No bleeding either.

All in all, I have no issues with this lipstick. *after all, it is my favorite!*

Lets see how it looks on me ;)

This is how it looks on me :)

See how dry my hair looks? I have lost hopes, I tell ya :\ I am bored with the Sunsilk range now. OK,this rant for another post. Lets concentrate on lippie now ;)

More fooling around ;)

That is it for today, I'll go study now. Engineer in making and all :D

Let me know what you think okay? 

You know you love me ;)
