I got these lipsticks a while ago, and just recently, i felt it was time for a review. House of Tara has the most gorgeous shades of lipsticks i tell you. I got red and pink colors *by the way, these are not the only red and pink colors they have*, and they are called 'Hajiya' and 'Jemila'.
I've used these colors to create a beautiful 'ombre' lip, using the red on the outer part of the lips and pink in the inner part.
|Oh, the packaging!|
Hajiya is a pink with a slight blue undertone. It's creamy and has a slight sheen, and somewhat neon. *I flee from 'em neon shades cos i don't wear them well*. The thing about these neon shades is that you HAVE TO use a liner so you can avoid making it look like you have lips that are too big for your face *loool!*. Well, it's not too neon though....it's just a bright pink.
Hajiya applies unevenly, and i really don't like it when lipsticks do that. If you peer closely at the picture above, you would notice the uneven application....some areas are well-covered while some areas are sheer.
Jemila on the other hand is a slightly dark red lipstick with a slight sheen. I liked the way this one applied....better!. It also applied more evenly. I like Jemila, and i've used it about thrice. It lasted about 7 hours each time, even though it faded out after about 4 hrs *i hope that made sense*
