To start with the packaging, I love the silver steel gloss like tube but it is see through in the middle where brand name goes and you can see the shade from the see through.
The doe foot applicator is perfect for application, even on the sharp edges and for defining the cupid’s bow. It is thick, pigmented cream in texture but settles within a minute to smudge proof, matte color.
I love the fact that it is comfortable on the lips and not at all drying. I have dry lips and I have a tough time with matte lipsticks usually, but this by far has been the most comfortable matte lip stain for me.
The pigmentation is so amazing that I just need to take the product out once to cover the lips completely. I never have dipped the applicator again for more product and I feel this 6.5 ml tube would last me really, really long.
Coming to the main part for me, the staying power. It stays whole day and survives meals, tea, coffee, everything. It fades a bit by the end of the day but doesn’t budge. Also it comes off easily with a makeup remover.
I have the shade ‘Mauve Dusk’ which is a beautiful mauve dusky rose pink, it looks more pinker in sunlight and more mauve indoors/dim light as you can see in both the pics below. I absolutely adore this shade and have been wearing this quite often since the time I got this.
Here it is on me..
It is definitely on the expensive side, but I would say the quantity is 6.5ml which is more than the usual 4ml in such matte lip creams/tints. I would have preferred less quantity and less price, which would have made it more economical.
But quality wise, it is just amazing! I highly recommend it!
I just wanted to add something here, I have seen mixed reviews of this lip stain and 2-3 bloggers found it very drying. I am not sure if the formulation is different for different shades, but try it before buying coz Rs.900/- is a lot to invest before trying.
Value for money: 4/5
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
Would I buy it again: Yes!
