Quick Delhi Cosmetic Market Updates- Maybelline, Colorbar, Lakme and Hashmi

  • Makeup UpdatesMaybelline gel liner has arrived the shops- Rs 375.Β  I swatched it, it looked creamy and nice. Comes with a brush , which is of good quality. Also the brush is not too wide or thick. It would give you a better control. It is also waterproof. Also, I found the colour very pigmented and vibrant. Comes in only black colour.
  • Bought Maybelline Eye studio Pencil in White (Rs 200)
  • The Lakme Sindhoor is not discontinued. In fact they have also come up with bright red sindhoor- reminded me of khoon bhari maang. πŸ˜› I bought two tubes in maroon shade.
  • Colorbar has introduced the lipsticks that are exact dupes of Lakme Aquashine lipsticks. My experience with Lakme Aquashine was pretty sad, so didn’t buy colorbar as well. I am actually disappointed in colorbar for this dupe.
  • Hashmi Kajal both in bullet form and cream form is available at local cosmetic vedors for Rs 40. I bought the bullet one because I thought that the cream liner would melt in hot summer days. Read Sarah’s review here Will do mine soon. πŸ™‚
  • Lakme cheek and lip tint can be applied on any skin tone. Girls who have wheatish complexion would just have to apply it more to make it visible. The tint is super sheer.

Have some lovely articles lined up for today.I am a little busy at the moment so this quick update.Β  Will post at least one article by evening. πŸ™‚

  1. I think I shd finally go for the Lakme cheek and lip tint.. Sooo want the Maybelline gel liner… It would be my first.. πŸ™‚

    1. Maybelline gel liner was lovely. I am using my Inglot liner these days so didn’t buy it. this would be my next purchase. πŸ™‚

  2. Yay! I like the price of the Maybelline gel liners. What sad experience with Lakme Aquashine? I happen to like them a bit more than I want to πŸ™‚


    1. You know Aquashine has some lovely colour range but its staying power disappointed me. I so love my old rose and wear it once in a while. πŸ™‚

  3. Finally.. we get the maybelline gel liner her..!!!
    but wont be getting it for myself now.. since im staying at home im not using much makeup.. and by the time i will be allowed to go out.. i think it will dry out.. πŸ™

    And i loved lakme aquashine but bought just two of them because of the price.. and they had some really nice shades which made it even more difficult to choose.. for how much is the colorbar one..??

    1. The colorbar one is for 275 and come n five shades- brown, red, mauvish pink, violet and rust.

      Loved the aquashine colours but didn’t like the staying power. Have three of them. I loved the twist lipstick concept though.

  4. Lakme cheek and lip tint ……..right now, one of my dream products……..Hashmi kajal…have heard it for the first time, so waiting for a review from you Rati.

  5. I tried lakme lip and cheeck tint once, but the SA applied it so badly that I so hated it…din’t even think of trying it myself…maybe will take another look now

  6. Oh well .. I have the both the variants of Hashmi kajal .. buh sadly I dun like em a lot ( dont kill me for this , Sarah !)
    but I love the fact that they are BLACK !!( You know , most of them turn out to be greyish black πŸ™
    N OMG !! I WANT the maybelline gel liners NOW !!!!!!!!!!!
    This will be my After exam treat . YAY !

    1. oh!! I think kajals are very personal things. My neighbour also swears by it. πŸ™‚ I think you must get the maybelline cream liner. You’ll love it. πŸ™‚

  7. the lakme lip and cheek tint goes on wonderfully on my cheeks but patchy on my lips. guess that’s coz of my dry skin! sigh!
    i loove my aquashine lip colour. apart from the delicate shades, the smell appeals to me! reminds me of a fruity cake! πŸ˜€
    do let me know about your experience with the white liner. mine seems to feather at the lashes a lot.
    the gel liner should be introduced in more colours! at least a brown.

    1. I had the same problem with the TBS lip and cheek stain and not becasue I have dry lips but because the testure of the tint was such. I think I must edit my post that I did like the texture, colours and the feel of the lipstick but the staying power disappointed me.

      I will let you know about the white liner. This is for the first time I am using the white liner. Let’s see how it goes. πŸ™‚

  8. rati i fall in love more and more with your blog everyday hehe but i enjoy ur posts the most though ..and the best news i heard is maybelline has a gel liner gonna try it for sure…

  9. So cool that maybelline has finally (!!) launched the gel liner – only i wish they had it in more colors like brown.

  10. Hey I too tried out the Maybelline gel liner on saturday and really loved it…..the liner and brush are soo soft and soo soo easy to apply…you can create any look you want with it…loved it..but since I already have a couple of black liners didnt buy it….I too want to see more colors in it

    1. whare did you disappear? I was thinking about you yesterday..I think it is going to rock in the Indian market. I would be buying it may be 2-3 months down the line. Black liners are ruling my vanity case as of now. πŸ˜›

      1. so sorry i knw i was totally out of touch…too much of work pressure becoz of month end at work which is completely on track on so I am back!!!

        I was soo tempted to buy the gel liner but just resisted myself…bght the collosal volume mascara tough πŸ˜‰

        1. yes, my friends were also going mad with this month end review. They have had no time to talk as well. πŸ™

          Do let me know how you find the colossal mascara. Although I am convinced about it but another feedback does not hurt either. πŸ˜›

  11. Does Hashmi Kajal have lead in it? :sidefrown: I had been ordering it until last year and had no problems. In fact I absolutely loved it!
    But now the online delivery has been discontinued, so can you please tell me where its available in Delhi(with a complete address please since I’m new to Delhi). πŸ™‚
