Iba Halal pure lips moisture rich lipsticks: Review, swatches, price
A week back, I had gone to a restaurant where my friends and I ended up ordering more than usual. We had 3 slices of pizza and a good portion of noodles left which we got packed. Given the pizza lover I am, everyone assumed that I would be taking the pizza slices with me. And I was going to! But I don’t know what got into me that day (I think, Bipasha Basu) that I said no to pizza. I didn’t think of it as a big deal until I saw my friend’s expressions. Anyhoo, we left but once I reached home and it was time for dinner, I realized what a grave mistake I made. I dreamt of those slices and instantly regretted not bringing them with me home.
When it comes to bad beauty products; higher the cost, higher the chances of regretting them. No wonder, I’m a fan of budget-friendly products that perform well. My recent favourites have been the Iba Halal pure lips moisture rich lipsticks.

My experience with Iba Halal pure lips moisture rich lipsticks
Packaging: Iba Halal pure lips moisture rich lipsticks come housed in a gold-finish tube with a proper closing mechanism. The shade names as well as numbers are mentioned at the bottom of them. I like the pointed tip of the bullet which allows for precise application especially along the edges of the lips.
Texture: These lipsticks have an ultra creamy formula and melt like butter on lips. They glide effortlessly which makes them a dream to apply. They aren’t too creamy to the point where they settle into the fine lines of my lips. The only gripe I have with Iba Halal pure lips moisture rich lipsticks is that they don’t feel very light-weight.
Shades: “Ruby Touch” is a cherry red and makes teeth appear much whiter than they are. It’s a beautiful red that should suit a variety of Indian skin tones. “Dusky Rose” is a mid-tone peachy brown with hints of red.

Iba Halal pure lips moisture rich lipstick Dusky Rose
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is very saturated as they cover the natural color of my lips almost completely.
Staying power: The shade “Dusky Rose” easily lasts for 3 hours depending on what you eat and drink and “Ruby Touch” lasts for almost 4-5 hours. It leaves a light stain behind which doesn’t leave the lips colorless. I have also noticed that once the glossy sheen goes away, there’s still color left on lips.
I didn’t encounter feathering with any of the shades but given how oily my skin is, I always like to take precautions by filling in with a lip liner first.
Iba Halal pure lips moisture rich lipsticks are awesome! They don’t cling to dead skin, don’t settle in fine lines and apply effortlessly on the lips. Both the shades have a rich color payoff and a good nourishing formula.
Price: Rs.195 each
VCB rating: 4.25/5
