Today, I am reviewing a shade called “Under A Spell” from Coloressence’s Intense Long Wear range. Read on for more details on this lip color.
My Experience with Coloressence Under A Spell Intense Long Wear Lip Color:
The outer packaging 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 details 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, this lip color 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 this lip color keeps the lips hydrated.
The shade “Under A Spell” is a rich, warm red without any shimmer. 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 dupe-able, 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 stays on my lips for more than 5 hours with absolutely no fading. After that, the lip color starts to smear a bit from the edges (without a lip liner). Overall, I am extremely impressed with this range of lip colors from Coloressence.
Pros of Coloressence Under A Spell Intense Long Wear Lip Color:
- Lovely texture.
- Beautiful shade.
- Long-staying texture.
Cons of Coloressence Under A Spell Intense Long Wear Lip Color:
- Funny smell on initial application.
- Outer packaging looks cheap.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Coloressence Under A Spell Intense Long Wear Lip Color?
Repurchase – yes, but in some other shade.
Recommend – definitely!
The shades are quite close to each other in this particular range from Coloressence, as all of them lean towards the red family mostly. I find them to be ideal for makeup artists to stash up in their beauty bag for wedding makeup looks. The shades are similar but not same; they are also quite affordable and of good quality as well.
