Shade, Coverage And Pigmentation

This is a warm red lipstick which will suit on all Indian skin tones. It gives very opaque finish, you don’t need to apply layers of lipstick for the color to show up on lips. Just one or two coats, and you’re done! It also covers pigmented lips very well.

Texture

It has a very smooth buttery texture.

Fragrance

I love its fragrance it has a very yummy fragrance! (Very similar to butterscotch ice-cream scent! :D) So, before applying this lipstick I take some time sniffing it and restrain myself from biting into it! This lipstick is very smooth to apply on the lips. It has a buttery formula, which makes the lipstick glide on lips easily. After application, face instantly brightens up and shows a healthy glow to the skin. It is not a true matte lipstick though as it has some shine in it, which also shows up on the lips. So, it is more of a moisturizing matte lipstick or lipstick with semi-matte finish.

Two observation after using this lipstick, at different room temperatures:

When applied in normal or higher room temperature, it gives semi-matte kind of finish. And when applied in lower room temperature (observed in an air conditioned room) it gives true matte finish and with this it also lasts longer. With mild snacking it stays put on the lips. But between moderate to heavy snacking to starts disappearing from the insides of the lips and stays on the edges of the lips, which makes the pout look un-attractive. So, a re-application is needed. And at this price point, I am not going to complain.

Staying Power

Concluding from two observations, it lasts for 3-4 hours only at normal room temperature. And lasts for 5-6 hours at lower room temperatures, after which it starts fading.
