Sweet Touch Bloggers Meet up

 Sweet Touch England invited some of the top bloggers of Karachi for a get together at New York Coffee. It is getting ahead strong with its game and being one of the top international companies, it wanted beauty bloggers to have a look at their Fall  Limited Edition Matte Lipsticks collection.  

Sweet Touch Fall Lipstick Collection

The collection is quite remarkable and some beautiful fall shades including plums, browns and coffee, to mention a few, have touched us the most. The collection has a number of shades so it’s safe to say that there is one for everyone.

The collection is available at all st counters across Pakistan. Each lipstick tube retails for PKR 300 which I believe is very reasonable.

Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipsticks

Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipsticks
After Getting one Tarte lippy I had to get some more as these shades are perfect for summers.  The
texture is smooth really smooth, the lipstick glides on effortlessly
and leaves behind beautifully semi glossy finish. Tarte Amazonian Butter lipsticks have
peppermint oil which gives minty fragrance on application.

Bare it ALL

Wet and Wild Bare it all

Today I want to talk about Wet and Wild Mega Last Lip color in shade Bare it All.. 

Yes this color is also known as a great dupe of MAC Velvet Teddy even I purchased it because of the same reason. 
 Product Claim:

Lips take center stage!
This
4-hour, long wearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, cream finish in one
stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake,
feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic
Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive
polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine
plant extracts Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamins A & E help smooth lips.

Wet and Wild Bare it all

My Experience: 
Wet and Wild Mega Lip Last comes in average quality packaging be cautious with the cap it can easily break. I have mine in shade Bare It All and this is my favorite nude color I love to pair it up with intense smokey eye. The formula is nice creamy glides on effortlessly and give me my favorite matte finish. The staying power is good it stays put for nice three to four hours on my lips. The lipstick looks good on its own but I love it even more when I add clear gloss on top of it for evening events. The color fades evenly and won’t bleed that’s the good part.

I love it because for the $3 price tag this lipstick is a steal. I got mine form an online Facebook page and I paid PKR 500 for it plus 200 Shipping yes this darling didn’t come cheap in Pakistan. If you want one for yourself you can get it from any Wet n Wild counter or from Online Facebook Pages.

ELF Matte Lipsticks

ELF Matte Lip color Praline and Coral
You all must be well aware with my obsession with matte lip colors I own tons of matte lipsticks and buy anything which says “MATTE”. My recent matte lipsticks are from ELF and today I will be reviewing shade Coral and Praline.



Product Description:

This convenient jumbo sized lip pencil creates exact color
application with twist up ease so you never have to sharpen. The
pigment rich color glides on effortlessly and easily to provide long
lasting matte color. The enriched Vitamin A, C & E formula
moisturizes and hydrates lips for beautiful healthy looking lips.

My Experience:
 The packaging is nice these lipsticks comes in a twist pencil like tubes, you can see the actual color of the lipstick at the base of the tube which is nice.  These lipsticks are enriched with Vitamins as per claims. The formulation is nice its light weight, soft and glides on effortlessly. These lipsticks are perfectly pigmented you don;t need a lot of application to get the desired color. Lets take about matte part these lipsticks are creamy and take sometime to go full on matte. As far as its staying power is concerned its very good for a $3 product, it stays out for good two hours. The only part I don’t like is that it shows dry lines after some time its not hydrating at all, at least not on my lips. 
I may buy some more shades I think for the price the quality is good.

Bite Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo Picture from Google

I have been waiting to write this review for so long but every time I sit down to write about it something comes up. Purchased this Bite Beauty Luminous Cream lipstick duo in shades Palomino/Violet directly from sephora in October and I have been using it since then. 

Product Claim:
What it is:
A bite-sized lipstick duo of contrasting shades.
What it does:
This mini duo of twist-up bullets offer
neutral or vivid lips on the go. Wear them individually or layer to
create your own custom look. With every application, antioxidant
Resveratrol fights free radicals with potent long-term age-repair
benefits. Each lipstick contains the Resveratrol equivalent of two
glasses of red wine, reducing fine lines and wrinkles on and around the
lip area over time.

 
My Experience:
First thing first, it is very TINY you will be disappointed when you see the actual tube of it , though the packaging is cute and good, but tiny very tiny . 
The creamy formula is just amazing its smooth and glides on like a charm. These babies are highly pigmented just one swipe and you are done. The most impressive thing about this lipstick is its staying power it stays put for like good three to four hours and leaves behind a beautiful stain on your lips. These lipsticks a has got Organic food grade ingredients in it but it smells a bit weird ( not that I care about). The only thing I hate about these lipsticks is that they melt mine melted and broke on application.
I love both the colors but shade Palomino suits my NC 25 skin tone perfectly. I guess its a good deal you get to try two new shades in the price of just one. I may buy this duo again but in different colors. If you want it you can get it from SEPHORA it retails for $12.

Sweet Touch Matte lipsticks

Sweet Touch Matte lipsticks

 

It’s rich it’s creamy and yes I like it.
Sweet Touch recently sent out a care package and this beautiful shade #785 was inside it. It’s not the first time I am using sweet touch lipstick I have been using these tubes since last year.                       
Product Claim:

Sweet Touch lipsticks have radiant colors that infuse lips with lasting
moisture and fulness. Lips have never looked so all day sensuous.
My experience: 
Sweet Touch Cosmetics has done some serious re branding recently and changed the packaging n enhanced the quality of their products. I quite like the new packaging its sturdy and eye catching.
The formula is better than the old one these lipsticks are creamy and they provides matte finish which happens to be my favorite. At first you will face some hard time to put this lipstick into running form it will be patchy and dry but after some attempts the lipstick will glide on smoothly. ( I suggest application of this lipstick with the help of lip brush).  The color pay off of Sweet Touch Matte lipsticks is good as these are nicely pigmented. As far as the lasting power of sweet touch lipsticks is concerned I am pretty much satisfied with it.
