After reviewing 2 shades from the Crème Luxe lipstick range from BH Cosmetics, I am back with a new range – the BH Cosmetics Color Lock Lipstick and the shade that I am reviewing today is True Heart. Read on to find out more about this lipstick.
$8.95 but I got it on sale for $4.
Lock in the color of your lipstick with this rich and creamy, long-wearing matte lipstick. Bold pigments stay in place all day while Shea Butter nourishes skin for soft and beautiful lips.
My Experience with BH Cosmetics True Heart Color Lock Long Lasting Matte Lipstick:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a sleek long black plastic tube with a silver tendril-like design running over the cap. It comes packaged in a cardboard box which has a cute heart lock and key design on it. The bottom of the tube has a sticker with the name of the shade on it. Somehow, I felt that the packaging feels a little flimsy and could be made sturdier.
Shade/Pigmentation: True Heart is a bright cherry red shade. It is a deep shade and hence would be apt for a party or some festive occasion. It might not be an everyday shade but it sure does lift your face and adds a brightness to it. The lipstick is fairly pigmented and one swipe is enough to cover the lips. I personally like swiping it twice to give a better finish.
Texture/Finish: This is a matte lipstick and like most matte lipsticks, it is not super-creamy. You need slight pressure to apply it on the lips but you don’t need to drag it or anything like that. The finish as promised is a beautiful matte. I love that it doesn’t look flat or dry like some matte lipsticks do soon after application, but it does start feeling a little dry as time passes. I would recommend applying a lip balm prior to the application. The lipstick does not accentuate any lip lines.
Lasting Power: The lasting power of the lipstick is quite good and it stays put easily for 6-7 hours with some snacking/light meals. It does transfer but not too much.
To summarize, this is a beautiful red lipstick with a long-lasting formula and a matte finish. And to top it, it comes at a very affordable price.
