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 the government. I’ve purchased two lipsticks from the range: Iba Halal Care Pure Lips Moisturizing Lipstick in the shade Pink Nectar and Ruby Touch.

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. The shade name is written at the bottom of the lipstick.
My Experience with Iba Halal Care Pure Lips Moisture Rich Lipstick
Iba Pure Lips range offers 22 shades, so you’ll most probably find your match! The formula and texture of these lipstick 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!
Iba Halal Care Pure Lips Moisture Rich Lipstick in Ruby Touch
It looks matte on the bullet, and while swatching on hands too but lips, it gives out a subtle sheen that may appear glossy. I’ll call this semi-matte finish.
Ruby Touch is a bright red shade that will suit every skin tone. It’s very pigmented, and in one swipe, it coats lips, even the pigmented ones. More swipes make it appears shiny and over the top. Snacking fades its intensity.
It sits comfortably on the lips and gives the wear time of 3-4 hours.

Iba Halal Care Pure Lips Moisture Rich Lipstick in 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 cover pigmented lips fully.
Lips need to be properly exfoliated before applying, or else they would get flaky. It stays on for 2-3 hours due to a creamy finish and can’t survive snacks.
It fades evenly with a slight tint behind. This shade is an exact match of Street Wear Color Rich Lipstick in Runway Russet but more glossy.
