As mentioned in my previous post, here is the review on the shade Ravishing by Coloressence from the Intense Long Wear range.
Price – Rs 450/-
My Experience with Coloressence Ravishing 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 mentioning these are not color coded; so you have to remember the shade name and the corresponding color. Though the lipstick is smart and sturdy, I believe it has 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 balms as it is keeps the lips hydrated.
The shade Ravishing is a neutral red without any distinct warm or cool undertones. In fact it is a very wearable shade of red as it is bright but not bold. I quite like the simplicity of the shade and recommend it to all red lovers. The shade is definitely dupable but the combination of the texture and the shade is definitely a big advantage for red lovers.
The staying power is super impressive. With mini snacks and drinks it stayed on my lips for more than 5 hours with absolutely no fading. After that it started to smear a bit from the edges as I skipped the liner to test the product. Overall extremely impressed with these lip colors by Coloressence.
