I am here with the review of Chambor’s Flowing Lipstick in “Traditional Rose.” This was one among the goodies my hubby got me as a gift for my birthday, very much in advance, almost a month before. I was at the Chambor’s counter with no intention of buying a lipstick, only eyeing the Chambor Jewel Eyeshadow Pencil, which I reviewed a few days back, but the SA was very good and she was asking me to check out some lipsticks. I turned, looked at my hubby as he was going to pay the bill, and he waved the green flag with a smiling face.
I am an all-time matte lover and I had recently purchased a few “Powder Matte” lipsticks. So, this time, I wanted to play around with the “Flowing Lipsticks” and so I gave this a place in my kit.
Read further to know more about this lipstick.
Different color variants of this flowing lipsticks have been reviewed here on IMBB and I am not going to blabber more about the ingredients or the product description. Directly jumping on to the main content.
First thing that grabbed my attention was the packing. It is sleek and it’s pen type with an in-built brush applicator. You have to twist and click the screw at the bottom for the product to come out. I remember seeing a similar type of lipstick from Lakme (don’t remember the name). I like the sound it makes when you twist click, its a “tik tik” sound 😛
The shade “Traditional Rose” is a maroon-brown shade. The color looked entirely different at the brightly lit counter, but I was disappointed and surprised when I opened it after reaching home. This was not the color I really wanted!!
Though the color disappointed me, I was extremely happy with the texture of the lipstick. I found it somewhat similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. The texture is very much creamy, smooth and spreads easily on the lips giving the perfect matte look. I am sure a matte lover would always keep the lips exfoliated, needless to mention. The color stays for a good 6-7 hours and starts fading evenly, which is pretty decent. I felt it light on my lips and did not transfer to cups or glasses.
Speaking about the pigmentation, it is just awesome!!. One single swipe will do all good and it gives good coverage for pigmented lips.
Chambor claims the lipstick has “jojoba oil which nourishes and moisturizes the lips throughout the day; shea butter which nourishes and conditions the lips. Vitamin A and Vitamin – E”.
On the contrary, I found the lipstick a little drying. You may need to give a coat of your favorite lip balm to give the luscious look. I found no moisturizing and nourishing effects. It fails miserably on that account. This comes in a pack of 4 ml for Rs. 550.
What I Like about Chambor Flowing Lipstick in Traditional Rose:
- The texture, its creamy, smooth and light on the lips.
- Very good staying power of 6-7 hours, long lasting like the Duracell batteries 😉
- Greatly pigmented, giving decent coverage to pigmented lips.
- Unique pen type packaging with an in-built applicator brush, sleek and travel friendly.
- A wide range of shades available to suit India skin tones.
What I Do Not Like about Chambor Flowing Lipstick in Traditional Rose:
- Despite containing shea butter, jojoba oil, and Vitamin E, this is neither hydrating nor moisturizing. You will need a lip balm for sure.
Will I Repurchase Chambor Flowing Lipstick in Traditional Rose?
Definitely yes, but not this shade.
Do I Recommend Chambor Flowing Lipstick in Traditional Rose?
Yes, if you are a matte lover like me.
Overall, this is a super matte lipstick with extremely creamy texture, great pigmentation, and long staying power. If you are a matte lover, then go grab it, but be prepare to handle the dryness.
