Streetwear Color Rich Lip Color – Pink Currant

Hello beautiful ladies,

Today I will share my views on Streetwear’s color rich lip stick in the color pink currant (29). This is my first buy from the brand and I invested in this as I was really impressed with Elle 18 lipsticks, so I thought of trying these too, another affordable brand. I had good but not very high expectations from the lipstick, but I feel sad to say that all my expectations were shattered.

Product quantity:

3.5g

Price:

Rs. 160

Streetwear Color Rich LIpstick Pink Currant

Packaging:

It comes in a black cover which is sealed with a plastic wrap.

Ingredients:

Nothing is mentioned about the ingredients.
What the company claims:
Color and moisturize your lips in just one quick swipe and get those kissable lips!

Creamy in texture, Street Wear Color Rich Lip Color is highly moisturizing lipstick. It possesses long staying power and does not fade off or gets smudged. Moreover it comes in nice packaging and is quite affordable.

My take on Streetwear Color Rich Lip Color – Pink Currant:

Till the time I opened the packaging, I was happy with my buy as it was not costly, but my feelings started changing and finally became exactly opposite when I opened it completely and applied it.

There are just 1-2 good points about the product so let me first list out those. The best part is that’s its cheap. So even if I didn’t like it I will not regret spending too much on this lipstick. The other thing I liked is the color I bought. I bought it online and the color appeared different and much prettier in the picture provided on the site, but the actual color is also pretty.

I completely dislike the product due to numerous reasons. When I opened the plastic packaging the cap of the lipstick came out with the plastic and when I tried to fix it I realized that the cap is too loose and comes off even when I invert the lipstick. Packaging is very normal and it seems cheap to me, I assumed it to be good as its black but it’s not up to the mark. I won’t emphasize on the packaging much as it’s not costly so we can manage it. The major problem I had with the lipstick was its pathetic smell. The smell blocked my nose as soon as I opened the lip stick and stayed on till the lipstick was on my lips. I wasn’t able to wear the lipstick for more than 2 hours, firstly due to the smell and secondly as my lips started itching due to the lipstick. I think that the ingredients didn’t suit me. I can’t comment on the staying power as I was not able to wear it for very long. The lipstick is not creamy, and it does not apply smoothly on the lips. It actually feels like plastic when you touch it. It also made my lips dry.

So basically I did not like the lipstick at all and I do regret buying it. The only satisfaction I have is the low amount I invested.

Would I buy Streetwear Color Rich Lip Color – Pink Currant  again?

Never!

Neither this color nor any other color. With such a bad experience, I may even not buy anything from this brand until it hasvery good reviews.

Haaaw… sad it didn’t work for you but I’ve read some good review about this range here.. I always wanted to pick up Peachy sizzle from this range but somehow I could never find it.. I guess I’d stick to maybelline.. :(

swati March 1, 2013 at 12:31 pm

I feel the same…but some people have suggested me to try some other shades so i’ll try them hope i will like them

Its sad swati.. even I had bad experience with this range! I am staying away from this..

swati March 1, 2013 at 12:33 pm

Oh finally i got someone who had a bad experience too otherwise i was thinking that my product was not authentic as i was the only one who didn’t like it

shami March 1, 2013 at 10:28 am

sad it didnt work for you :( i have two lippies from this range,, peach sizzle and pink pie and i love both!!

intially when the lipstick is new it will dry out.. so do multiple swipes in your hand or in tissue paper then start using it.. i felt a difference when i did this :)

agree that packaging is worst :(

And i feel itchiness whenever i use Maybelline – My mahogany lipstick whereas others never faced such problem so ingredients of certain lipsticks might not suit some ppl :)
