Brighten up your day or eveningPixlr_20150111123853673

words: Ambica Gulati

Winters are nice because that’s the time to take out all the reds, plums, oranges and velvets. It was an evening to step out for a cigar and single malt pairing. So taking out a pair of black trousers and black sweater, I tried on my funky neon pink ear rings. The bright colours in my ears, it was time to add that same splash to my lips. Chucking away my favourite red, I decided to go for the Colorbar Cherry Sheen (05) lipgloss. Was it going to look better than my normal lipper? Just a roll and it matched my ear rings for this cherry is a mix of plum and fuchsia pink. This cherry sheen is something that gives party feel in a minute.

What I liked: I needed a smart but happy look; teamed with an all black outfit, this shade went well. It added class and the black and fuchsia was the right dash. This gloss can go well for any evening out, especially when on a date. It has a silky and glass finish. It keeps the lips moisturized. It can also be the perfect finish for complete your lip make-up with a lipstick and a lip liner. It is the ultimate allure.Pixlr_20150111170104621
