As I mentioned in my earlier post, that I picked 3 lip crayons from Chambor, I picked a dark shade just to experiment. I was expecting it to be a deep maroon or marsala shade but this turned out a lot darker than expected. Have a look at the shade below and tell me would you dare to wear? 😛
Price: Rs 845 for 2.8 g

My Experience with Chambor Bulgarian Rose 09 Extreme Matte Long Wear Lip Colour
Packaging: The chambor lip crayon comes in a navy blue box, which is the signature box of chambor cosmetics. The crayon comes in a simple sleek pencil format which is colour coded. The colour coding makes it very easy to spot these. It has a cap which is tight and won’t harm the bullet. But the main issue with the packaging is that, these crayons must be sharpened which cause a lot of product wastage. And also they have not given any sharpener with it, so I am waiting to grab one. The price is definitely expensive but the other crayons cost this much as well.
Shade: The shade “Bulgarian rose” is a deep burgundy shade with a lot of black hints. It is more like a black rose with subtle red hints. This is probably one of the darkest shades in the range. While it is a unique shade, I am not a big fan of such vampy shades. It is just too bold and dark and most of the women wouldn’t prefer wearing such a dark shade. It is more suited for evening wear since it would look OTT during the day. I wish this shade was more of a maroon and not so dark because it makes me look really weird.
Texture and finish: The texture is super creamy and glides very smooth on the lips. However, since it gives a matte finish, it will cling to very dry lips hence I have to scrub and moisturize my lips. This shade in particular is very patchy and stark during application and at no point I get an even colour on the lips. I wish the texture was a bit better and not patchy.
Staying power: It stayed on my lips for around 7-8 hours. A little colour may fade with food but most of the colour stays in-tact. It does not transfer much but settles a bit in fine lines.
Overall, the range is good, but this shade is a no for me.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Chambor Bulgarian Rose 09 Extreme Matte Long Wear Lip Colour?
No I would neither buy it nor would recommend it. It is just too dark and the texture is also not that great, so call it a skip from my side.
I just wish they launch some more shades in a retractable crayon form because using these sharpening ones is a tedious task.
