Elizabeth Arden lipstick in Coral – review, swatches!
Color-wise, It’s a rich plum with brown undertones, and packs quite the punch. MAC calls it plum-brown but I think the undertones are more of a mahogany than a plum brown. This color goes with a lot of Indian skin tones so it’s a cult fav of makeup artists in India/Gulf countries.

And it does not transfer much on the coffee cups 😉 I also tone it down by layering it with a lighter gloss.

For so many days I haven’t really done any kind of TLC on me & so I found a middle way. while going out anywhere, rely on MAC MSF natural, black kohl tightlined into eyes & a bright lipstick blotted as a stain! Easy-peasy… doesn’t require a mirror too. have you tried it? The one lipstick I’ve been reaching these days a lot is the […]
I find the word Scarlet really sexy. When I read scarlet, it reminds me of Marilyn Monroe, Scarlet-O-hara, basically a hot curvy lady with a flowy dress and high stilettos! a picture just forms in my mind! I also secretly wear scarlet something when I want to feel good about myself!
What : The NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Cruella! NARS describes it as a passionate scarlet red.
Cost : $24.
My take on Cruella : After using RiRiWoo (reviewed HERE) I absolutely fell in love with scarlet reds – Although I’m mostly biased towards neutrals & n*des. I was lingering around the NARS counter during the TMS so much that the head makeup artist knew my face at the end of the weekend! So I got this one & a purple Never say never (HERE). I have not used it much because I don’t want it to get over. hehhe.
