These days a lot of cosmetic and makeup products that were usually seen on counter shelves in malls or outlets have finally found their way into my dressing. The courtesy of IMBB gang and everyone out here for their valuable posts that have helped me choose amongst those numerous varieties available out there. THANK YOU EVERYONE AT IMBB. One of my favorite amongst them is a lipstick from Chambor in their Silk Touch category. Actually I was looking for their lipstick no. Gold Dust but was disappointed to find that this particular shade had been discontinued so the sales assistant persuaded me into purchasing this one. Although the color is quite similar to the one I was looking for, it lacks the hint of gold that my previous shade had.
Today I am going to talk about Chambor Silk Touch Lipstick No.652 in Silk Raisin. This lipstick comes in a sleek navy blue case with a silver band in between and is priced at Rs. 575 for 4.5 gms. The packaging says to have hydration, sun protection and anti-age. Now who wouldn’t get tempted to have all the above three most sought after qualities in a single package?
The color belongs to the family of pinks but with a slight hint of brown in it so it gives the hint of a little maroon brown upon application. Just as the name implies this lipstick is just like silk, is very soft and glides effortlessly making the application very easy though I couldn’t find any hint of raisin in it. Nor does its color or its fragrance is associated with raisins in any manner. I really thought at least it would have a slight taste of those, now maybe the name was there to tempt people who actually eat their lipsticks. LOL. I find it has a slight fragrance that of coconut in it and lingers on for a while even after application.
These lipsticks are very creamy and highly pigmented. One swipe and viola you are done though some people might require a second swipe but not for me. The coverage is really good, does not form any cracks and has a good staying power unless you are out for a complete meal. It stays on for about 4-5 hours after which it starts fading so one might feel the need for touch ups in between. These have a subtle shine so I particularly do not feel the need of any gloss or balm and can feel my lips hydrated for a good duration.
Pros of Chambor Silk Touch lipstick in Silk Raisin
• Highly pigmented, creamy and provide good coverage.
• Light fragrance.
• Average staying power.
• Provides hydration and sun protection.
• Fades evenly and has a subtle shine.
• Is water resistant but does get smudged.
• Shelf life is 36 months so that you can add more colors without considering the time factor.
Cons of Chambor Silk Touch lipstick in Silk Raisin
• There is nothing Raisin like, at least I believe that the name ought to be associated in some manner with the product.
• Although the casing is good, its difficult to recognize the shade unless opened or checked at the bottom
• Do not know about the Anti Age qualities
• Gets transferred to objects easily so ladies just be careful.
Overall verdict: I have a slight dusky complexion and this shade complements my skin tone fabulously, so those on the lookout for something in pink with a hint of brown, this is for you. This shade will suit all other skin tones too and can we worn both at formal and informal occasions.
IMBB rating 4/5 just because it gets transferred easily.
