Lipstick: Christian Louboutin

A lipstick called Bengali ? It’s not often my (Bengali) culture or roots are evoked in the beauty world, so when that happens you can be damn sure I will buy it.



It’s beautiful to look at. A pretty solid base, nicely weighted but the cap is a bit plasticky. And you pay $90 for packaging alone!CL Bengali packaging.001

Apart from the name what fascinates me is the colour. It’s what we (Indians) call ‘Rani Pink’.

This pink, I swear , is what most of my Bengali ‘aunties’ wore around Durga Puja.  What I don’t understand is how did he know?  How did Loubotin know this is the Pink the Bengali aunties so love ?




It’s a beautiful velvet matte, applies really well, not patchy atall. It’s not drying either and stays on for AGES !

Even after this oily, slurrpy Chinese Meal!


Is it comparable to MAC and Urban Decay ? Of course it is.

You don’t need to buy  a Christian Louboutin lipstick!

Stick with MAC Urban Decay Loreal NYX and co.

I bought it only because of the name. BENGALI.

I am a proud Bengali and now I own a kick-ass looking lipstick.
