Ambika Pillai Lite Line Lipstick – Red Hot

Ambika Pillai Lite Line Lipstick – Red Hot

Hello Ladies,

I got my wedding makeup from Ambika Pillai. She used the same lipstick which I am going to review today. It is Lite Line lipstick in Red Hot shade. I didn’t want to use this shade as this is very typical and every bride applies red. I wanted to go for peachy orange, but then you know makeup artists hardly listen to you. So I ended up using this shade only. I have to say I made a great purchase and will keep on buying more from her collection. Let’s move on with the review.



I bought it for 400 but printed price is 700 INR.


The packaging is really innovative and classy. The cap is transparent and has “Ambika pillai” written on one side and on the other side it has a small mirror which is very useful for touch ups on the go. The best part is the cute light within the lipstick. If you press this small button at the back of the lipstick, it switches on the light. I have never seen thing like this in any lipstick.

It is smooth and buttery. The staying power is great say about 7-8 hours with meals and it fades evenly.

My Experience with Ambika Pillai Lite Line lipstick Red Hot

I didn’t want to buy this shade earlier as I am a hoarder of pinks and nudes only, but I have to buy this as I thought touch ups will be required for photo sessions and lipstick should be same throughout the night and next day as well. But you know what no touch ups were required till next day 12noon. I had too much dinner as well on my marriage, no other gal will ever eat that much on her wedding but I DID 😀 😀 I asked my husband to not to stop eating otherwise what will people think about me 😛ambika_pillai_lite_line_lipstick_-_red_hot__5_
Coming back to review, I was shocked by seeing its staying power. I again applied that color the very next day and the result was almost same. It remains on my lips for 7-8hours. So that was pretty good point for me to buy more lipsticks from her collection. They are creamy and glide on smoothly. They are highly pigmented and require one swipe and you get the true intense color. Shade is pretty hot red. This shade is not for everyday use, but will go with sarees and LBDs as well.The lipstick case is very sturdy and pretty.These are not tested on animals and they say that “partial proceeds from our purchase are given to Indian charities! “


Pros of Ambika Pillai Lite Line lipstick – Red Hot :

• Highly pigmented.
• Creamy and moisturizing.
• Mirror and light are quite handy and useful.
• Staying power is great.
• Inexpensive


Cons of Ambika Pillai Lite Line lipstick – Red Hot:

• I didn’t find any con if they are selling it for Rs.400 only.


IMBB rating:


Final Verdict:

I would highly recommend this to all. Even I am going to try other shades from her collection. Now days we hardly get lipstick at this cost.
