Skin Tone: Medium, NC42, warm undertones
A while ago, I had tried two shades from Coloressence’s Intense Long Wear range and I absolutely loved them. So, I went ahead and picked up 4 more shades from the same range, today, I have the shade “Forever For Love” up for review.
My Experience with Coloressence Forever For Love Intense Long Wear Lip Color:
The outer paper carton is a mix of silver and black with a window at the side for the lipstick. The details about the product are mentioned at the back of the “flimsy” paper box. The shade name and number are mentioned at the base, but the sticker with all these details is not color coded; so you have to remember the shade name and the corresponding color.
Though the lipstick is smart and sturdy, I believe there’s room for improvement, especially the outer carton.
The texture of the lip color is lovely, to say the least. It is thick and rich, yet not gooey. It does not feel heavy on the lips and as there is no shimmer in the shade, it does not feel gritty at all. In spite of being a long-wear color, it does not feel dry or uncomfortable on the lips; on the contrary, people with normal lips can skip lip balm as it is does keep the lips hydrated.
The shade “Forever For Love” is a pink with evident red undertones. A very bright yet wearable shade and is ideal wear for office/college, especially during the summers. I loved the richness of the shade which is something unique as the finish is matte. The shade is definitely dupe-able, but the combination of the texture and the shade, makes it a favorite of mine. For me, this is one of the best shades in the entire range.
The staying power is super impressive. With mini snacks and drinks, it stays on my lips for more than 5 hours with absolutely no fading. After that, it starts to smear a bit from the edges (without any lip liner as I wanted to test the product).
Overall, this is an extremely impressive lip product from Coloressence.
