I had hauled a lot of lipsticks a few days ago, you might have seen them in my haul post. Check out more details about this particular lipstick “Nectar” from Coloressence’s Mesmerising range.
My Experience with Coloressence 72 Nectar Mesmerising Lipstick:
Packaging: It comes in the classic Coloressence “Mesmerising” range packaging. The lipstick comes in a matte black plastic covering with a silver border thing. I like the matte black packaging, it’s quite for the price. The bullet is silver in color. The shade name and number are written on a sticker at the bottom of the lipstick. The lipstick doesn’t twist that easily, but I do not mind. The cap closes with a nice audible click. Overall, it’s sturdy enough to throw in your purse, travel friendly, and looks good too.
Color/Pigmentation: “Nectar” is a gorgeous n*de color. It looks a light orange shade but on the lips, it is a beautiful MLBB shade. I really love how cute the shade is, it’s a good shade for every day wear, be it college or at work.
It might wash out dark skin tones, but a dark lip liner can make this one work! It isn’t that pigmented, so you need two coats for an opaque finish.
Texture: I love that it is smooth and creamy. The texture is good, it glides nicely on normal lips. It might tug a little bit on dry lips, but it won’t highlight the cracks on your lips or any dry patches.
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.
It takes a lot of time to settle into a semi-matte finish.
Staying Power: It wears for 5-6 hours. It does fade a bit with meals. It doesn’t leave a stain behind though! 🙂
Smell/Taste: There isn’t any particular smell or taste. It might have a light fragrance, but on the lips, you don’t feel anything.
