How are you today? It has been a long time since I have reviewed a lip product. So, I am back with a lipstick range whose two shades – Warm Passion and Cranberry I have already reviewed. This is the third shade – Pure Temptation.
Rs. 525 for 8 ml.
My Experience with Diana of London 2000 Kisses Wonderful Lipstick – Pure Temptation:
The packaging is a transparent one which lets you see the actual colour through it. “2000 Kisses” is imprinted on it in silver. Overall, packaging is nice. This shade is somewhat similar to shade No. 39 in warm passion. The difference lies in the fact that Warm Passion was a coral shade with pink undertones and this one is more of orange and less of pink. I cannot carry off bold oranges, so in the swatches, you will see a very light orange shade. I have applied it with a very light hand and spread with my finger. Otherwise, it is a more obvious orange than it appears in my swatches. If you want to wear a fully fledged orange, you can apply it liberally. In some pictures, I have applied a clear lip juice over it, as I like to wear this shade this way and also because it is drying otherwise.
Pigmentation is really good and you know by now that it stays like forever. Once you are done with the application, forget touch ups for the rest of the day.
Negative point as I mentioned earlier, is that it gives out paint like smell while applying which goes away after a few seconds.
Pros of Diana of London 2000 Kisses Wonderful Lipstick – Pure Temptation:
- Extremely long wearing, up to 16 hours.
- Absolutely non-transferable and waterproof.
- A nice shade of orange.
- Very lightweight.
- Matte lovers can use it plain and gloss lovers can apply a nude gloss coat for a lovely glossy look.
Cons of Diana of London 2000 Kisses Wonderful Lipstick – Pure Temptation:
- For some, it may seem to be too drying.
- Cannot be used over chapped lips.
- Not at all moisturising.
- Some may not like the paint like feeling it gives.
- Dark complexioned girls may not like this shade.
- It contains a lot of parabens.
Do I Recommend/Would I Repurchase Diana of London 2000 Kisses Wonderful Lipstick – Pure Temptation?
Well, I already have three shades from this range, so I would not buy it again. For the readers, I would say look at the swatches and decide for yourself if you would like to buy it. For me, I would prefer the moisturising kind of lipsticks even if I have to reapply them.
Until next time, stay in style.
