My Experience: As you can see by the condition of this lipstick, I have used it a lot already.. It glides on smoothly and effortlessly on the lips and settles gorgeously giving it a velvety feel.. I love all the shades in the range but this particular shade has my heart.. It flatters my skin tone and all my outfits really well. It has a rich, creamy 2-in-1 formulation that doesn’t dry out lips but leaves a beautiful matte finish behind.. The texture of this lipstick nourishes my lips and gives them a soft and hydrated look. It stays on the lips for around five hours but the staying power also depends on how oily and moisturised your lips naturally are, how much you speak, eat or drink. On an average, it stays intact for four hours at-least but the matter of disappointment is that it smudges and transfers “very” easily due to which I have to be extra careful with it.
It has also failed in my waterproof test unfortunately but it doesn’t wear off completely after drinking water. The color gets lighter and the lipstick starts to fade but leaves a beautiful tint and soft lips behind.
The pigmentation of this lipstick is so nice that I can’t even tell you guys enough. The color pays off in a single swipe and multiple swipes are not needed literally, at least in this shade. The finish is just like a satin-matte lipstick which I love. I hate matte lipsticks that are too matte.. If you want, you can mattify any lipstick using certain DIYs like blotting the lips with a tissue and setting the lipstick with a powder but I love how this one looks and its overall finish. I love carrying it in my handbag but the issue is it melts and breaks very easily if not kept in a cool place.
