My Experience with Chambor Extreme Matte Long Wear #04 Aztec Brick Lip Colour:
The lip swatches were taken around a month back, when I had taken a trip and it was snowing there. I just want to show the starkness of this red against a very white, dry and bright climate. My penchant for red lipsticks is well known and this was one red which I carried with me, to test out the matte texture of this lipstick. This is an extremely sober sort of red, which one can easily wear during daytime outings and shopping and stuff. Just a swipe of this across the lips, and you will not need any other makeup on your face. This is just perfect to brighten up your face.
Packaging: The lipstick is actually a lip crayon, which has a self colored body, with the shade name written on it; and closes with a transparent cap. The cap fits in snugly with the crayon, and does not pose any problem during travels. It comes inside a box packaging, which could have been better I feel.
Texture: These lip crayons are extremely soft and creamy in texture so much so that the tip of this crayon actually broke when I applied a bit more pressure, nothing which a sharpener could not mend. The lip crayon actually goes on very smooth; almost gliding on the lips; without tugging or pulling at all. It is creamy, but does not moisturise the lips; and does not dry out the lips either (even in icy-cold weather). It goes on extremely matte, almost like a stain from the moment GO….and does not feather at all.
Shade and Pigmentation: The shade is a beautiful muted red shade with slight coral undertones; and has a bit of minute gold micro-shimmer in it. I could have done without the shimmer, but frankly, it does not bother me much. It does not show too much on the lips; and really tends to bring out the brick like colour even more. The pigmentation is a bit less than Earthy Red; since this is a muted type of shade.
Lasting Time: It lasts a fairly long time, nearly 5-6 hours, after which it tends to leave a very mild stain. The shimmer tends to wear off with the colour, so it is not the case of the colour wearing off, leaving only shimmer on the lips. Overall, I love this shade, and wear this muted red anytime, anyplace, whenever I feel the mood to. It instantly lifts up my face and perks up my mood.
