Hello beautiful! Recently I’ve come across a brand called ‘Iba Halal Care’. They claim their products to be 100% vegan, cruelty free and free of alcohol. It is a brand certified as ‘Halal’ by government. Know more about this brand here. I’ve purchased two lipsticks from the range which is Iba Halal Care Pure Lips Moisturizing Lipstick in shade Pink Nectar and Ruby Touch. Let’s get started with the review!
Iba Pure Lips Moisturizing Lipstick comes in a golden case. Its cap shuts tight but I don’t find it sturdy enough as it sometimes gets opened on its own. Shade name is written at the bottom of lipstick.
My Experience: Iba Pure Lips range offers 22 shades so you’ll most probably find your match! Formula and texture of these lipsticks shades are different from one another. Some are matte and some are glossy. They smell just like other lipsticks i.e waxy. But they’re cruelty free and vegan and that’s a win!
Ruby Touch: It looks matte on the bullet and while swatching on hands too but on lips it gives out a subtle sheen which may appear glossy. I’ll call this semi matte finish.
Ruby Touch is a bright red shade which will suit every skin tone. It’s very pigmented and in one swipe it covers lips, even the pigmented ones. More swipes makes it appears shiny and over the top. Snacking fades its intensity. It sits comfortably on lips and gives the wear time of 3-4 hours.

Pink Nectar: As the name suggests, I thought it would be a pink shade but actually it is a pinkish dusty rose shade with mauve undertones. In fact it’s a good MLBB shade for many skin tones. This particular shade is ideal for office and college wear. It comes out glossy on lips. Its pigmentation is sheer and one would need 2-3 swipes to fully cover pigmented lips. Lips need to be properly exfoliated before applying or else they would get flaky. It stays on for 2-3 hours due to creamy finish and can’t survive snacks. It fades evenly with a slight tint behind. This shade is exact match of Street Wear Color Rich Lipstick in Runway Russet which I’ve reviewed here but more glossy.
