Ambika Pillai Lite Lipgloss Review and Swatches

Hello beauties, hope you all doing great. Today I will review lip glosses by Ambika Pillai. Ambika Pillai as everyone knows is a well-known make-up artist. She has quite a few range of make-up products by her name. I got opportunity of buying some of the products online. Hope you find this review useful.

Ambika Pillai Lite Lipgloss

Price: Around 450/- (I got it on sale from fashionandyou website)


Ambika Pillai Lite Lipgloss
There are in all 5 shades available from Lite range.
I got 2 shades.

  • Fifi: A cute pink with fine silver shimmer
  • Yum-yum: Muted pinkish brown with fine gold shimmer

Ambika Pillai Lite Lipgloss

Ambika Pillai launched her Lite collection last year which is a great hit among our celebs. I personally never got anything from her collection before this. So this is my first encounter with this brand. And I am loving it!
The shades are pretty. The packaging is like never before. The tubes are sturdy rectangular. They come with a mirror which is a plus point. Also the gloss has doe-tip applicator, which I prefer and what more! It comes with a light. Yes they have included a white light on the applicator with a round button on the outside. Cute isn’t it!
But I doubt where it would be useful? Who is going to see you in dark anyways!!! πŸ˜›
May be Delhi-walon ke liye fayda hai……bohot electricity jaati hai na! So make-up geeks can apply glosses and lipsticks in the dim lights too. :tounge:
I loved the shades I got. It is nicely pigmented. But the gloss is somewhat runny. As in I don’t like the consistency of it. May be that’s because of the Castor oil. (this is no way connected to Rads :treamble: )
However, apart from this I have no complaints. I like the shine it gives. And it does not settle in the fine lines of my lips. The glitter is not chunky. Shimmer is just in correct proportion to give you nice shiny pout without being OTT! Staying-power is just 3-4 hours. Not like M.A.C lipglasses. So you need touch-ups. I think that is because of the light, non-sticky texture.
Look at the lights! I used this as torch in dark lanes on my recent visit to Shimla. :toothygrin:

This is the side mirror which I find very useful. I don’t have to carry an extra mirror in my bag anymore. Saves space!

And here are the swatches of the gloss. Can you see the shimmer in it. And shades are such pretty…hai na?
Fifi is my favourite pink right now. And Yum-Yum I love for nude lips. :))

This is how the gloss looks on my lips. I have applied Yum-Yum very lightly and hence the true color has not been picked by my cam. :((

Pros of Ambika Pillai Lite Lipgloss

  • Pretty shades.
  • Shimmer is fine and does not settle in fine lines.
  • Non-sticky and light-weight. You actually don’t feel you are wearing it on your lips. πŸ™‚
  • Cheaper compared to other high-end brands.
  • Contains natural ingredients.
  • Highly moisturizing. You can skip the lip balm if you wearing this.

Cons of Ambika Pillai Lite Lipgloss

  • Contains methyl paraben :tremble:
  • Staying power is less. You need touch-ups.
  • Availability. I don’t know any shop which sells these products. If anyone knows please mention in the comments. πŸ™‚
  • I personally like my lip glosses to smell nice like M.A.C vanilla one. This has a nutty smell which I don’t prefer.

My rating: :-* :-* :-*
Would I get it again?
Probably because I like the shades. But I may try not to because of the parabens.

            “ did you hurt your eyes Jomol?? I was sooper careful and cautious when I tried it first time on my lashes..So much careful I was that the curler didn’t pick up my lashes at all!! 😐 😐 And I was wondering what happened..then I tried on the other eye, slowly and carefully taking just the outer part of my lashes and holding them for a while; I could see some results…Today I could use it properly. How is your eye now?? Where did you hurt yourself?”

  10. Jomoliiiiiiiiiii, Thank you…all these days i was wondering y was i born, what r my birth rights…now thank you for throwing light… :yahoo: :tremble:

  12. They are super pretty!! I like Yum-Yum more in the swatch but Fifi looks lovely on your lips. :victory: The lights are actually so bright..I used to think there would be just a teeny-tiny light.
    From the ingredient list they look super moisturizing. :waytogo: At the risk of sounding ignorant :shame: , who is Ambika Pillai? I’d never heard of her before IMBB.

  13. Hey Ankita…..thank u. Fifi is my personal fav from both.
    yes very moisturising :waytogo:
    And AMbika Pillai is Delhi based celeb make-up artist :))

    1. Thank you Jinal πŸ™‚ I tried searching for makeup on Fashionandyou but couldn’t find anything. Is it only selected stuff that they sell which changes time to time?

      1. Also,I wanted to try out some Oriflame products. Could you please send me a catalogue over’ll find my email id if you follow the link to the blog(on the contact page) at the end of my comment.
