Yesterday my Internet connection just failed me, So I could not upload this Review . .
First of all I have used many products from the Lotus Herbals brand and have liked their products both in terms of quality and pricing. I feel I get value for my money. But I had not tried any lip products from Lotus. .Some days back I was searching online and saw this shade. .I simply loved the colour. .So I just ordered it on impulse. . And when I saw this shade I was just so happy that I ordered it.
Lotus Herbals Pure Colors Lipstick Carnation 640
Price: I bought for 216/- I think the original price is like 225/230. .
Packaging: The lipstick came in a plastic wrapping with the batch no. , Mfg. date and barcode etc. printed. . I would have preferred if the Mfg. date was printed on the lipstick. As we would not keep the outer plastic wrap but we will not be able to find the mfg. date when needed. . I solved this problem by writing the Mfg. date under my lippie with a CD pen (Yes . . . I’m a bit sceptical)
The lipstick casing is simple. .The casing has ‘Lotus herbals’ and their logo printed in golden. .The shade name and no. is printed on a sticker under the lippie.
It’s easy to carry in a purse and the lid shuts tight.
The outer wrapping says that the lippie contains natural extracts of Aloe Vera & jojoba oil.
Colour: It is a lovely coral pink. .It’s a very beautiful colour and would suit all fair and mid toned ladies. .It’s great for an easy look or a day look. The shade is great to wear to Office or to a Morning occasion. Can be easily paired with heavy eye makeup.
See the swatches below:
It looks darker in the above swatch. . This was taken without flash. . The colour is lighter than what you see here. .The below swatch is what it truly looks like.
If you have pigmented lips then use a nude lip liner or a bit of foundation underneath. .
The lipstick has a slight smell, which is not harsh and fades after a few minutes. . The lippie is very creamy, glides smoothly. . Its moisturising enough. .
Lipstick’s staying power is a bit low. .It stays for like 3 hours max and then vanishes. .It does not leave a tint. But if I apply a layer and bolt and then apply another layer it stays for like 5 hours. .
I would like to say that if you all love this colour then go for it. Do not expect too much staying power. . Those with very dry lips use a hint of balm. .Otherwise it did not dry my lips. . So I did not need a lip balm.
The above picture is taken after 2 hours of application. I did not apply any lip liner or foundation underneath.
· Pretty Affordable. .
· Great colour. Great for a day occasion or office wear.
· Does not settle in fine lines
· Creamy, glides easily
· Many shades to choose from
· Herbal product. .
· Contains extracts of Aloe Vera and Jojoba oil.
· Easily available
· Staying power is medium. 3 hours if worn alone. .Max 5 hours if I bolt and reapply.
· Some may find the smell unpleasant. It fades in a few minutes
· Does not suit Dark skinned girls
· Pigmented lips need a bit of foundation or a nude lip liner underneath. .
So hope you Ladies love this one . .I have now officially turned into a lipstick addict . .It’s strange cause even two/three months back I was not into lippies. .:)
I have really liked this one. And I hope to try more shades from this range. I would have loved if the staying power was a bit more .But nonetheless I am not complaining cause I’m simply in love with this color.
Have you tried any lipstick from this range? Do you have any favorites? Please suggest some. .
Have a great day Ladies. .As for me I am simply love this week.
P.S.: 11th was my birthday so I could not upload any post . .:)
