Today, I am going to review another of my lipstick from Chambor from their “Silk Touch” range and its called “Silk Purple.”
Price and Packaging:
This lipstick comes in a sleek navy blue case with a silver band in between and is priced at Rs. 575 for 4.5 gm. The packaging mentions hydration, sun protection and anti-age.
Chambor’s Silk Touch Lipsticks offer a splash of color and a kiss of silk. The Classic Silk Touch in a dreamy avatar that dresses your lips with an array of looks: from daring to delicate, innocent to sexy for all moods and for all occasions.
My Experience with Chambor Silk Touch Lipstick in Silk Purple:
These days whenever I hear the name “Silk,” whether it’s Cadbury’s or Chambor, it always reminds me of Vidya Balan 🙂 don’t know why. She certainly made silk famous. Coming to the lipstick, this one belongs to the family of pinks and purples. Its not a bold purple lipstick, but with a touch of pink to it, so that you don’t look too out of place. Just as the name implies, this lipstick is just like silk, is very soft and glides effortlessly making the application very easy. One swipe and viola you are done though some people might require a second swipe, but not for me.
These lipsticks are very creamy and highly pigmented.. 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 3-4 hours after which it starts to fade, so one might feel the need for touch ups in between. These have a subtle shine, so you do not require any gloss. I have used them during winters when my lips get absolutely dry without using a balm underneath and can feel my lips hydrated for a good duration. So, it doesn’t disappoint regarding hydration and lives up to its claims.
All lipsticks in the Silk Touch range have a slight fragrance that is present initially upon application, but after a while fades away. Good for those who do not like lipsticks that are fragrant.
Pros of Chambor Silk Touch Lipstick in Silk Purple:
- Highly pigmented, creamy and provides good coverage.
- Light fragrance.
- Average staying power.
- Provides hydration and sun protection.
- Fades evenly and has a subtle shine.
- 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 Purple:
- Difficult to recognize the shade from the case. Need to open or check the bottom.
- Do not know about the anti-ageing benefits.
- Gets transferred easily, so be careful with light colors.
I have a slight dusky complexion and this shade complements my skin tone fabulously, so those on the lookout for something in purple with a hint of pink, this is for you. This shade will suit all other skin tones too and will look good on all outfits.
4/5, just because it gets transferred easily.
