Today I will be reviewing a lip product from Diana of London. This is my first buy from DOL. I chose the “Surprise” series after reading reviews on IMBB. And by far out of all DOL products this series seemed best and I bought a shade called “Sunkist” thinking it to be a natural shade. Let us see how it turned out.

My Experience with Diana of London Surprise Lipstick in Sunkist:
This lipstick comes in a very classy blue and silver packing. I love the packaging; it looks very classy, especially the clear blue cover. The texture is very creamy and soft, really very creamy. It glides on so smoothly like butter. I love the texture to the core. It is much pigmented. It gives such a nice color pay off in just one single swipe.
Now coming to the shade, it is a nice brown color with coral hints. It is not too dark like coffee nor too light like nutmeg. It is a beautiful maroonish brown color. But when I bought I thought of it to be close to natural shade. It is a bit dark for dusky skin tone (including me ). But for wheatish or fair skin tones, it is a gorgeous shade. One single swipe is enough to add a nice glow to the dull face.
The staying power is really good, it stays on for 5-6 hours and fades away after having meals. Since it is a dark color it leaves behind a brown tint. Overall it is a good quality lipstick with a good range of shades and one need to invest in one of these beauties.
