7 Days of MM Makeup - Day 2 : MM Makeup Lip varnish Review & Swatches
Its day 2 of the MM Makeup series I started yesterday and I am patting my back for keeping up with the promise that I will post the whole week ( Given the previous record , I am pretty bad at it ). So its terrible Tuesday isn't it ?No worries on a bad day there is always a lipstick ! Yup, wear your favorite one and flaunt away the day.
Today, under the spot light is MM Makeup Lip varnish which is actually the name of their glossy lipstick range. So lets get on to it
MM Makeup Lip Varnish:
Available in Matte and shimmer shades, this smoothing lip color provides opulence with light-weight luxurious color. Infused with Shea Butter and Vitamin E
Who is this for?
For the women who love luxurious colors in creamy textures.
The Masarrat Misbah Lip Varnish comes in a rectangular tube with a matte black finish and the MM Logo printed over it . Honestly, I absolutely love the finish of this makeup line . Its Black and its Matte , the perfect combination, super chic and classy ! The lipstick secures nicely but , with the passage if time , I feel the cap loosening up a bit, not that it has started to come off on its own but still its looser than the one I recently got .
Coming to the formula , I think they have aptly named it as Lip Varnish ,because the formula is very creamy and glides on perfectly . I love how buttery these are and there is no tugging of the lips . The color comes off sheer at first but can be built up .The finish is glossy which can be tonned down considerably by blotting with tissue paper. These lipsticks are super moisturizing ,so you don't need to wear lip balm under them or even worry if you haven't exfoliated your lips. This makes them my go to choice for the winters because my lips tend to dry a lot . so wearing the MM Lip varnish doubles up as a lip balm for me in winters. One thing that you will notice as soon as you open the cap is the strong fragrance of these lipsticks . These smell like vanilla , yes no exaggeration here . Though the fragrance fades away with time (or may be you get habituated to it ) , I am not much of a fan such fragrant cosmetics. The staying power of these lipsticks is 3-4 hours at max without eating and drinking which I think is fair enough given the formula . The glossy lipsticks no matter what brand they are tend to be of lesser staying power as compared to their matte counter parts. The longevity however decreases with eating and drinking ( and excessive talking in my case ) . The two shades that I own are very light , almost nude. I have a feeling that the brighter ones from the same range might have a longer staying power
These come in 10 different shades which range from nudes to bright reds. I own only two out of them which I am going to talk about very briefly below
A warm tonned down peach which appears somewhat neon-ish on me (or I just feel so ). Wear time : 3-4 hours . Super moisturizing . Best to be worn in winters.
A neutral brown/nude that turns out to be my MLBB shade . Wear time 3-4 hours . super moisturizing . Love to wear it everyday ,everywhere.
