I shopped a ton of lipsticks that you might have seen from my haul post. Today I will be sharing one of my favorites from the lot. This one is called Desire and is an intense red shade. One can not have enough of red shades, hence I picked it up! Let us see how it fares!
My Experience on Coloressence 70 Desire Mesmerising Lipstick:
Classic Coloressence “Mesmerising” range packaging. It comes in a black thick paper box, which has some details printed like the company name, ingredients, price, etc. The lipstick comes in a matte black plastic covering with a silver border thing. I like the matte black packaging, it looks classy for the price. The bullet is silver in color. The shade name and number are written on a sticker stuck at the bottom of the lipstick. The lipstick does not twist that easily, but I do not mind. The cap closes with a nice audible click. Overall, it is sturdy enough to throw in your purse, travel friendly, and looks good too.
‘Desire’ is an intense red color that suits Indian skin tone. When I first applied it, my mom really loved it and said that it is very sophisticated red. I agree! It is the kind of red that brightens up your face and gives a nice pop of color. The pigmentation just blew me away! It is so intensely pigmented that with one swipe you get almost 99% color! Then, you just have to go in to fill the little gaps and corners you missed.
I love that it is smooth and creamy and yet, it is matte. The texture is good, it glides on easily on normal lips. It might tug a little bit on dry lips but it would not highlight the cracks on your lips or any dry patches. I have applied it on super dry lips and it looked good! The lipstick does moisturise a little bit but as time passes, you feel the dryness. Hence, a lip balm is a must, if you are going to apply it for longer duration. Also, it gets more matte as the clock ticks by.
So, I wore this shade at around 5 pm in the evening and after dinner, my lips looked almost the same. It survived an intense workout, a face wash, water breaks and even dinner! It did look a little less intense, but I never touched up! It stays for that long! Totally ‘Mesmerising’ lipstick! The only tiring part is when you have to remove it. It leaves a very stubborn stain behind, that took a lot of scrubbing. Even so the stain did not go away completely. It was there till next day, I did not even have to apply any lipstick :p
There is no any particular smell or taste that I noticed. It might have a light fragrance but on the lips you do not smell anything.
