Here I come with yet another lipstick review :P, this time a gorgeous hot pink shade, well it does feel “hot” to me. This is my first lipstick from the Coloressence brand and I don’t know anything much about it or the range. I bought it on an impulse from an online store and I did not research anything about the color as there are hardly much users of this range, but still I thought, I must give it a try because it comes at an unbelievable price of Rs. 125!
I picked up the color based on the swatch on the site as well as by the lipstick’s name as well, but I must say, I am very happy with the purchase. I do not have many hot pinks as I don’t have occasions to wear such colors and I mainly stick to safe peaches on a regular basis. There were hardly any nudes on the list and hence I chose a unique shade which would be a fresh welcome to my collection.
First of all, I don’t trust the quality of this brand as I haven’t heard much about anyone’s experiences. Secondly, there are no counters of this brand in the malls I have visited and so I am in total ignorance about it. Despite this, I am happy with the choice I made.
This is a very feminine “hot pink” kind of a color and this can perk up fair complexions. I think its more of a party shade when worn full on and otherwise best suited as a stain only.
The texture of the lipstick is sticky and its not creamy, but feels hard when you swipe it, but what bowled me over was the pigmentation and the color. The lipstick has great color in just one swipe and would be great for pigmented lips as well. I also love the color very much, but I would still say it’s a sticky lipstick.
The packing reminds me of Faces Moisture Rich range, even though its not as bulky. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it considering I paid around Rs. 125 for it. The lipstick click locks and goes into a cardboard casing and can be carried around in the bag. I don’t like the name sticker at the base though. The packaging is not classy, but it isn’t terrible either.
The color come out gorgeous in just one swipe and the finish is like some Moisture Rich lipstick from Faces, where its neither creamy nor matte, but it has an oily shine. It does feel a little sticky as well, but a tissue ply can deal with that.
It lasts for a decent time too, but the only problem I have with this lipstick is that it stains a bit, well, its not as bad as the Colorbar lipsticks, but still considering how hot pink this lipstick is, the stain isn’t as bad, maybe I can give it a benefit of doubt considering the strong pigmentation.
Fabulous job done for the price of Rs. 125. This lipstick is pigmented, gives full coverage, though it feels a little sticky and does stain. Nevertheless, I recommend this lipstick 🙂
