Hey Lipstick lovers!!!
The blog series is not over yet, it's not a T20 match but a long series so there is more to come yet from My Lipstick Collection. I am going to share my two lovelies rather darlings from my Classics Lipsticks which I have since my wedding and one is my daily use choice and the other is an occasional rather festivity pick. To know more READ MORE:



The Two Classics' Lipstick in my collection are shade #211 & #238, I had another shade in #207 that was a caramel golden very sheen shade, gave it to my Mom, well she is the one who gets most of the benefit as I have no sister, but she deserves it Love You MOM. Well now gets back to the review of these two shades which I have. Let Me Introduce the two beauties in my collection Two different babies of same brand: Classics. These are not specified as matte or cream Lipsticks. This brand has a good range of colours to choose from. As I bought them for my wedding so I selected different shades that can be used on daily bases and also for parties etc. (The details of each shade will be reviewed individually in this post). First thing which I liked about this brand was there transparent casing, as far as I remember it came with a packing too in silver box. This was the first time i bought this brand so I had no experience but to tell you the truth the lipsticks has lived up to my expectations and even more than that as the shades and the lipstick's quality didn't disappoint me at all. Rather I fell in love with them esp #211. Both shades served me well.These are matte shades with shimmer in it that makes them shiny and they look creamy. Application is smooth texture is creamy and pigmentation is great. I had no issue regarding the quality of the product over all. You truly get the shade on the bullet as it is on your lips no change, no conversion, no toning down and no DE-colorizing. They are totally worth single penny I paid for them, as far as i remember 3 years ago when I bought them these were around Pkr 400 each.
Now the detailed review with swatches and pictures of each shade:) HAVE A LOOK!!!

You see how soon it is going to touch the bottom...even the shade is on the rim

MY EXPERIENCE:
This is the first coral peach in my collection and I am sure that I will buy the same when it will finish, and from the picture you must have realized that that time is coming soon. I selected this shade as before wedding you need to have few common shades and Orange is one of them besides Red, Pink and Brown. Like a person I am I wanted something in coral or peach rather than a tangerine orange. So after swatching many shades from the Lipstick counter in Al-Fatah I found this and bought it immediately and till date did not regret it. It served my choice well a peachy coral, NOT an orange at all. I Love it Love it Love it!!! what else shall I say?
Note: On the lips I applied it with a light coral/orange lip pencil.

RATING:
The quality is a fab as I described earlier. Hope you will love the swatches and will tempt to get it in rating I will give it 5/5.

MY EXPERIENCE:
This shade is a typical wedding shade being a bright shade, but a different one that suites my choice as it is not a straight common shade. It is a shocking pink more on a mauve-ish side you can call it megenta shade (Thanks Shamaila for the correct spellings:)). It is a shimmery shade but matte in it's application. The shimmer is not glittery, it just make the shade shiny and is not visible at all. I use it occasionally on night functions esp weddings etc. As I am not at all a person who can carry such bold and dark shades on daily bases without ANY purpose, lolz (well being married the purpose arises some times, lolz).

RATING:
4.5/5 only as for me it's not a daily choice due to it's being a bold shade but quality vice it's a beauty esp the shade is so unique.


Hope You all like these shades from My Lipstick Collection. Do comment, share like and G+ this post and also tweet about it to spread the love of Lipsticks in all lipstick lovers around us.
