Review: Saleha Lipsticks

by Wasifa Ahmad Hasan
Hello hello!

Today I am quite excited to write review about the following product. It’s a newly launched lipstick called “Saleha” and it’s created by the famous Saleha Abbasi. If you haven’t heard her name or unfamiliar with her work, let me give you the introduction.



Internationally known Pro Makeup Artist/Beauty Guru and founder of CHERRYKISS Cosmetics, Saleha is your go-to Makeup Artist for all your beauty needs. She has been in the Industry for over a decade, making clients look and feel HEAVENLY! Renowned for her signature eye makeup makes her brides and party goers look absolutely stunning. Saleha can give you either the ultimate in glamour factor or a sophisticated natural look for a flawless complexion. Whatever look you desire, she is guaranteed to make you look like a STAR! 

She is based in Chicago, IL and famous for her bridal makeup. Her eye makeup is flawless and eye lining technique is pure perfection!

Here is what she has to say about the product:


Cruelty-free Cosmetic Line formulated with only the finest ingredients that are high performance and actually beneficial to your beauty concerns. 


Currently, there are 7 shades in the line. I ordered 5. 


Packaging of the product is sleek. It comes in all golden ensemble.

The bullet-shaped lipstick container is made of plastic with “SALEHA” printed on it.P.S.- I am not that fond of the material of the container. It looks good, but doesn’t feel that way. 🙁

Saleha Lipstick



The product is cruelty-free…..so no bunnies were hurt while making this lipstick 🙂


The main ingredient which shows on the front of the packet is Coconut oil. Let’s have a closer look at the rest of the ingredients, shall we?


The finish or texture of this lipstick is described as, “Matte-Creamy Lustrous” finish. Now you can ask, “How can a creamy lipstick be matte?

Yes, it’s a unique combo. As you can see from the following swatch, the colors are really vibrant and the finish looks matte-creamy as described, not overly glossy or overly matte.



This is the most popular color in the Saleha Beauty line. It’s a cool toned classic red.

This color will be flattering on most of the skin colors. For my Bangladeshi readers, this will be a great Red lipstick for most of Bangladeshi skin color and tone.

Saleha Lipstick (Swatched once)

Here is color on my lips under sunlight….without any other lip products.


Cat Walk is a warm toned orangey red which looks totally red on tube.

The color will be great for warm skin tone . And bonus: this is a great color for Summer!

After 1 swipe, the color looks more orangey..but if you layer on the product, the color portrays warm red with orange undertone.

Here is 1 swipe of the lipcolor without any additional lip product.


“Crazy Love” looks really dark on the tube, both in sunlight and indoor light.

The color is cool toned burgundy red which is easily buildable into rich wine red color.

Saleha Lipstick (Swatched once)

Don’t get fooled by the tube color. This color interprets beautifully on lips and is actually pretty wearable. Great for Fall.


Just as the name implies, this lipstick color is really eye catching.

It’s a cool toned pink and the color is pretty vibrant.

Saleha Lipstick (Swatched once)

After 2 swipes, the color looks almost neon pink!


This is totally a color for Fall. It looks a dark purple or plum on tube.
After swatching, the color looks more wearable for daily use. It’s a cool toned purple color. Just as the other colors, you can build up the intensity of the color.

Saleha Lipstick (Swatched once)

The color can be used as a light purple-pink or rich purple according to your choice.

Staying power:

– The product’s staying power is average….doesn’t last well if you are eating your meal or drinking.
– The lipstick is transferable and has to be used with lip primer or set with powder.
– The colors leave little or no stain after washing off with soap and water.

Saleha Lipsticks- staying power

Here is a  little experiment wearing the colors “Celebrity” and “Cat Walk”.

Pic-A: After using the mix of both colors.
Pic-B: After eating and drinking.
 Pic-C: The color before taking off the product.

In a nutshell:



1. Good pigmentation.
2. Formula feels moisturizing on lips.

3. Colors are buildable.
4. Product doesn’t feel sticky and feels weightless on lips.
5. There’s a mild peppermint smell in the product without the cooling effect on lips. 


1. Average-poor staying power.
2. Packaging could be better. The plastic container can be replaced with metal.


Each retails for $19 and can be found on salehabeauty.com

Thank you for the review. I badly wanted celebrity because of the colour in the picture on her Facebook page but it looks nothing like it when you swatched it ?

Saleha one is kinda satin or semi-glossy type. If you want a matte one then try Lime Crime Red velvetine. It really brightens up skin 🙂
