You know how much I love Chambor’s Power Matte lipstick range, but I have to say that sadly, the formula of these lipsticks has changed over the years. Powder matte lipsticks used to be the creamiest matte ones for under 500 bucks. Now, each lipstick is priced at INR 645 and still not at all creamy. Rather, they feel rubbery and draggy. Take a look at this recent shade that I picked up online, “Melon Sorbet,” which is a maroonish-brown color.
An Innovative Formulated Lipstick which has both Moisturizer + Matte Effect in it. Powder Matte Lipsticks have a Non-Drying Triple Action Formula which: Bright bold perfectly matte. This unique powder matte lipstick provides high impact payoff; an ultra pigmented long wearing vitamin enriched formula glides on effortlessly with comfortable wear. Long wearing application.
My Experience with Chambor Melon Sorbet Powder Matte Lipstick:
I am disappointed with the formula. I must say, the earlier powder matte lipsticks used to melt like butter, but now, they feel like stiff rubbery matte lipsticks. You do get color payoff, but you need to build it up. If you have dry and flaky lips, avoid this lipstick.
“Melon Sorbet” is a deep fall color, more of a maroon-toned brown, but when I build it up, it really stands out. You have to pair it up with lighter eye makeup. The texture makes my lips appear smaller. The feel is nothing great too! I mean what happened to the previous creamy matte formula?
This lipstick stays on for 4 hours but I don’t enjoy wearing it honestly. I like the color but the formula is not up to my liking. I can buy better creamy matte lipsticks at this price.
Pros of Chambor Melon Sorbet Powder Matte Lipstick:
- Nice fall shade.
- Covers up lip pigmentation.
- Powder matte finish.
Cons of Chambor Melon Sorbet Powder Matte Lipstick:
- Not creamy anymore,
- Feels dry.
- Makes lips look smaller.
- Looks cakey when you build it up.
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Chambor Melon Sorbet Powder Matte Lipstick?
I am not in a position to recommend powder mattes anymore. They are not the old formula anymore. Please use your 645 bucks on a better range.
