About Lakme Lip Love Conditioner:

I solely bought this for the sake of Packaging. Heart shape, Red mirror-shiny cap and round, slip-in-your pocket tub. I am oh-so-valentine-y always. I love to see them whenever I pull out my Vanity Drawers, they just attract my sight. I sometimes carry them around in my bag, for touch ups and no I don’t carry brush along. I use my pinky finger.
( What option do I have? If you are a genius, comment below with the idea )

And also I love clicking them.
The Texture is gel like, glides on smoothly but the color does not looks even on lips. It tends to settle in lines . Chapstick ran over lips are must for these Conditioners. And if your Lips are chapped, you better stay away. It stays on for 2-3 hours if wore alone.
There is nothing I love about these Love Conditioners except for the packaging and colors.

Hottie is a Cool Toned Pink
Flirt is Coral Pinkish Color
Siren is a wonderful Coral.

The Oh-so-good about Lakme Lip Love Conditioner:
  1. Romance induced Packaging. All Lovey-Dovey.
  2. 4 Colors/Shades to choose from.
  3. It can be used as lip gloss over same color or alone.
  4. The Pigmentation is average.
  5. Light Vanilla Fragrance.

The Oh-so-unworthy about Lakme Lip Love Conditioner:
  1. Unhygienic Packaging of course!
  2. You need a Brush for application.
  3. It does settles in lines.
  4. Uneven texture on lips. It just sits there, no absorption or tint is left.
  5. Transfers easily.
  6. Bad staying power.
  7. Definitely not Light weight, Makes me conscious of having something on my lips.
  8. It won’t show up on heavily pigmented lips. Especially the color Hottie and Flirt.

I ran out of thoughts here, happens every time, I look at them. And that never makes me regrets for wasting money on them. Well I just said it.

My Verdict:
If you are sucker for the packaging and would want one, to show off? Go for Flirt.
Its nice and pink and coral-ish and will suit fair to medium skin tones.

Rating: 1.5/5. Too Bad it seems.

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Review in Medium 2: Pure Beige

About Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse:
Air-whipped liquid provides perfecting coverage for 100% poreless skin. Ideal for normal skin.
Oil-free, fragrance-free,  Dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic – won’t clog pores, safe for sensitive skin.

I bought Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse on impulse and still no regrets.

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse, a sturdy see through glass bottle with pump. The texture of Mousse is creamy and gives light to medium coverage. The coverage is slightly buildable but won't conceal blemishes and marks. The Finish on skin is Satiny-dewy and for time being skin indeed looks flawless.
The staying power is average, stays on for 4-5 hours and a li'l blotting or powder will be needed to control shiny T-zone or Cheeks.
I have Combination skin with T-zone and Cheeks Oily. And I need to blot and powder my face after 3 hours if I reach for this.

The Oh-so-Good about Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse:

  1. Dewy and Satiny Finish.
  2. Light to Medium Buildable Coverage.
  3. Photographs well with Flash.
  4. Ideal for Dry skin or Normal.
  5. Blends like a dream.
  6. Fragrance Free, All that good for Sensitive noses.
  7. Non-Comedogenic. So no clogged pores.
  8. Flawless Air Brush Finish, if applied suitable way.
  9. A tiny amount, just a blob is needed for the face.

The Oh-so-unworthy about Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse:

  1. Glass Bottle: Not Travel Friendly.
  2. Not ideal for Oily skin.
  3. Settles in Fine lines, if not blended properly.
  4. Shade Selection. One might have to customize to find ideal shade.
  5. Not for Humid Climatic Conditions unless you stay indoors in Conditioned Atmosphere.
  6. It transfers on the Phone. ( atleast for me )

My Verdict:

I love Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse for its Finish: Flawless and Dewy. So I tend to reach for it when my skin is dry and lifeless. This Perks up the glow and looks natural than made up.
I blend it with Fingers in hurry or Use a Foundation brush from wonder finish. I find stippling it quite tricky, since I have sensitive skin and I turn red in no time. Using a sponge is a way to go, if you need a little more coverage.
