This was another gift from a fellow lipstick addict. Apart from the color, the fact that it’s a flowing lipstick and not a gloss or a lipstick, was a treat for a non-gloss user like me. I don’t wear glosses because I have some mental block against them looking untidy on me 😛 but still, this is a pretty lip color and perhaps a base for my other lighter lipsticks.
I think there is another review on this shade on a pretty pink color, but somehow the packaging of the base of that one and this looks a little different to me and so does the texture. The texture is not like those thick Faces Lip Cream, neither like the dual-ended lipsticks with gloss on one end and liquid lipstick on the other end, that sets on the lips making a thick coating on the lips, more like a paint for pigmented lips and perhaps a base for another longer lasting lipstick.
I love those dual-ended lipsticks for the color, but I have never ever used the gloss end of it, which is transparent and I have some 10 such gloss ends lying with me :P. The best part about this lipstick is that there is no gloss involved, still I get a lipstick that dries and makes a soft base unlike a thick “paint” one.
The shade is a pretty red-based brown and on first look, I thought it would be a maroon on me, but it wasn’t. Its a nice red-brown on me and looks fine after drying. If I want, I can still use another corresponding lipstick on the coat of this flowing lipstick, something that I like to do as I am fond of thicker lipsticks.
Now, what I don’t like about this lipstick is that it can be very streaky. In one coat, as you can see, it looks very patchy and looks like a “worn off” lipstick. Now in two coats, it covers the lips very well and will be great for pigmented lips as well.
There are some things I noticed about the texture. When not stored under the right temperature, this lipstick leaves an oily-glossy substance that comes out prior to the thick lipstick. This lipstick can be liquid-y in consistency, as in its not like the color side of those dual-ended kind of lipsticks. The lipstick does not feel dry, flaky or cakey, but feels quite light even after it is worn in two coats. I also like it as a base.
The lipstick fades off unevenly and in a patchy pattern and it is best to keep it in check. It does not accumulate in the fine lines, but otherwise, has a very good and light feel to it. The staying power would be around three to four hours without being patchy and if I wear a brown or red lipstick on top, it would last very long for me. The lipstick dries to a semi matte finish but still looks soft and I remove it with a bi-phase remover.
I do find the lipstick to be a little hard to work with and will not be suitable for people who like full lips or want to wear a lip liner. Sometimes, I would go and line my lips after it has dried, but I find it hard to define my lips with this one.
Last Word on Chambor Flowing Lipstick Stay On Color: Garnet Rose
A little patchy and streaky, not everyone will like this lipstick, but if you are on the fence about your love for lipstick and a gloss, this can be a middle ground. Feels light even after drying, but a little hard to define lips with.
