Today's guest post is by Tejinder aka Tej, who definitely does not need much introduction. She is someone who we have come to know and love for her sweet nature and great reviews. Tej is originally from Punjab, now living in the UK for the past 5 yrs with her family.

She believes in living life to the fullest and her interests are shopping, dancing, travelling and partying. Tej is planning to start her own blog very soon so do wish her good luck!

In today's post, Tej reviews six of her favorite lipsticks. 

1. Hello Kitty Betz BelieveThis lipstick is very soft and has a beautiful smooth texture which helps it to glide on easily over the lips. It wears for hours and gives a matte finish. The color is a mauvish pink and will suit most skin tones. I love the packaging of the lipstick coz its so cute! The color of the cap indicates the color of the lipstick. Available at Superdrug store n costs £4.99.

2. MUA Lipstick Shade no 13 - I love MUA because all its products are so reasonably priced and they are of such great quality. Shade 13 is a true red which is simply gorgeous. Its easy to apply, goes opaque in one swipe, finish is semi-glossy and has a creamy texture. Its a daring and bold red, which stays on for a long time and smells good as well. The packaging is not really very chic but then I have no complaints since the quality makes up for the plain packaging. And it only costs £1!

3. W7 Copper QueenW7 Lipsticks are very smooth to apply and offers superior sheen. These lipsticks beat some of the more costly brands. Not so great staying power but stays at least 3- 4 hrs. The shade is a pretty copper metallic one and looks glossy on the lips.This is particularly a good color to wear with Indian outfits. You can get this for only £1.80 from Amazon. It is nicely pigmented and will suit all skin tones.

4. Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick I have got the shade Poppysilk Red 714, a pinkish orangey red colour. This color is hard to describe because it’s not orange, or coral or red but a combination of all three. Moon Drops lipsticks have a very strong scent so beware if you have a sensitive nose! I like this lipstick because its so pigmented and provides full coverage with only one swipe. It lasts for a really long time too and leaves a nice pink stain after fading away. It keeps the lips soft and has SPF as well. Available in 29 shades and the price is £2.79 at Amazon.

MUA Lipstick Shade No 8 - This is a pinkish red color with a bit of shimmer. It looks much darker in the tube than when applied on the lips, and looks more of pink than red on the lips. This again is very moisturising, glides on with ease and goes opaque in one swipe. It has a semi-glossy finish. Available at Superdrug stores and the price is only £1. The lipstick lasts for a long time, smells good and the color will suit all skin tones. 

    Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in SiennaI got Sienna 055 which is a reddish brown color. It is a very flattering shade and two swipes give full opaque coverage. It is very creamy in texture and does not dry out the lips and stays for nearly 4-5 hrs. It is very highly pigmented and texture is smooth and gives glossy finish but not very shiny. This is a warm shade and will look good on most skin tones, can be worn at any time, during day or in the evening. Available at Amazon for £1.99. 

  Hope you liked my review of the above lipsticks. Although my collection has many brands: Maybelline, Colorbar, Max factor, No 7, Chanel, Loreal , Rimmel London, Revlon, Bourjois etc but I use these most often. 

Loved your reviews Tej and wish you the best for your blog :)
