Read My Lips OR The Newspaper?


Today's newspaper highlight : 8 Bollywood babes looking cute in 'Being Human' tanks in different colors, whereas their 'middleman' Salman Khan looks like their flamboyant uncle in red pants, white t-shirt, a black vest , and sunglasses! 
Anyways, if the real newspapers bore you, how about a newspaper print lipstick? Today I'm wearing TheBalm 'Read My Lips' Lipstick. It is actually a newspaper print packaging, which was what drew me to this lipstick in the first place. Smooth, good quality paper, which can only be ruined if you mishandle it yourself (klutzes be extra careful! ;) )

I got Wanted, which is described as a 'Strawberry Red'


It looks like a statement 'in-your-face' kinda red, but I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out much subtler on the lips. Especially if you apply it minimally, it looks like a lip tint, without the dryness, because it's loaded with vitamins A&E, olive oil & jojoba oil. It feels like a lip balm.


This is a red lipstick you don't need to wait for a special occasion to wear, coz it's versatile. You can play it up or tone it down according to your mood and outfit. I like it a lot.

I bought it for about Rs.800.

*Always keep the lipstick in the box it came in to prevent any damage to the paper packaging.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
