I am back again with another goodie from Chambor. My friends and my husband say that these days, I’m going crazy about Chambor stuff and I gracefully agree to it! I was hunting for a matte mauve lipstick for a long time though I was happy with Maybelline’s Moisture Rich Lipstick “Dusky Mauve.” Last Saturday, I just happened to cross Shopper’s Stop and I decided to check the Powder Matte range of Chambor. I looked mainly for pinks and mauves and this one was my pick.
Well, there had been lots of reviews of Chambor Powder Matte lipsticks, speaking in detail about the packing and ingredients, so I will not do repeat it again.
I shall tell you more about the shade, Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick – Mauve Fantasie.
The color as the name speaks is mauve with a plum base. At times, it looks violet. It is very subtle and will look good on dusky-fairer skin tones. For an everyday office wear, this one is perfect, not giving the heavy look on the lips. For girls, who shy away from bright lip colors, this one can be a good choice.
What keeps me attracted towards Chambor lipsticks is that they are super creamy, be it the “Flowing Lipsticks” or “Long Lasting Lipsticks,” they are utterly butterly smooth and this “Powder Matte” is no exception. It glides super smooth on the lips and the color pay off is indeed great, but highly pigmented lips may not get full justice in a single swipe.
Speaking about the finish, its matte, the perfect matte, and I just love it. It stays good for 3-4 hours and fades with a faint tint later on. It survives small snacks and tea. This lipstick does not settle into fine lines at all.
The lipstick has a weird fragrance. I always think of Neha’s words describing the fragrance as “agarbatti.” To me, it smells like some antique thing. For some, this scent may be a turn off, but it lasts for a few minutes, stays barely for 5-10 minutes.
Like all other matte lipsticks, this matte lipstick can also cause dryness. You may need to dab a little bit of a lip balm and should remember to exfoliate the lips.
Chambor claims that their Powder Matte lipsticks have anti-ageing properties and provides hydration with the goodness of jojoba oil, but I don’t agree. For the creamy matte finish and the lovely shades that they have in this range, I really don’t mind if some of their claims are not true.
Finally, if you are looking for a subtle, pretty shade with a plum base, suitable for daily wear , then go grab this. I love this lipstick so much that I somehow manage to wear it very often. These lipsticks retail for Rs. 450 at all Chambor counters and worth every penny you spend.
