Hola Bonitas (hello beauties)!
Finally I got a chance to interact with all beautiful ladies at IMBB. Today I am reviewing my first product from Diana of London. Before buying it I was bit puzzled but after first my application of lipstick, I felt happy that I went for it. No doubt it is one of the finest products if you compare price with the quality. I was looking for a lip colour which has a decent staying power with moisturising effect. Then I came across Diana of London Surprise Lipstick. It claims Semi Matte finish with vitamin E, non fading, non-allergic and long lasting formula. So I decided to give it a try!
What the company claims:
- Protects your lips from the summer blazing sun, dry heat and freezing winds. Soft creamy texture, semi matte best shades keeps the lips soft and supple.
- Excellent colour pay-off and high coverage in just one stroke.
- Enriched with Vitamin E and sun filters.
- Non feathering and Non Bleeding
- Lips appear healthier, softer, smoother and more radiant than before.
- Brings comfort & hydration up to 8 hours. (From Official website)
How true the claims are:
No doubt it has a soft creamy texture, keeps the lips soft and supple and has semi-matte finish. The pigmentation is awesome and has good coverage even in one stroke and also it is non-feathering and non-bleeding. But, it doesn’t hydrate the lips up to 8 hours. It hydrates and keeps the lips smoother for 4-5 hours even if you take a little tea or coffee.
Rs. 400/- (now hiked I suppose)
My experience with Diana of London Surprise Lipstick Pink Rose:
Diana of London surprise lipstick comes in nice attractive packing. Other lipsticks of this range don’t have that stunning a packaging. So, you always fall in love at first sight. It has a radiant blue packing with a royal look. The cap is made of strong metal and the overall look is classy.
Pink rose contradicts the shade and is brownish rose pink in colour. I struggled hard to find pink in it but failed. Although in bright sunlight it looks like a rose colour while in the dark it appears as a brownish rose shade. It is very much visible in the photos. It has tint of Indian rose colour which is visible when the colour fades out after 4-5 hours. It is not the daily wear shade for early twenties. Although it is a darker shade, it will suit most of the Indian skin, hence I must say that it is worth trying. It will work well on pigmented lips also. Mine are very mildly pigmented lips (only at the corners) so you can trust the colour swatches in the photos. After application, it gives a radiant look to the face as well. It goes nicely with light eye makeup. Half an hour after application the pigmentation settles down to a smart matte finish and does not stick to the coffee mug but after instant application, due to its creamy texture it has a tendency to leave stains.
