Skin Tone- Medium, NC42, warm undertones
I love neutrals and no two thoughts before picking them up as I end up wearing more neutrals for everyday. The bright shades go on holidays with me…so lucky you see :P. I have reviewed a pretty and wearable shade, Raspberry and now here are my thoughts on the shade no. 18, Hazelnut.
Price – Rs 699/-
Light weight, Long lasting & Non – transfer. An amazing lip color in a liquid form with matte iridescent & metallic effects assures long lasting make up results. The creamy soft velvety texture is light and comfortable. It doesn’t feel heavy or greasy, the non transfer lip color allows perception in every occasion.
My Experience with Diana of London #18 Hazelnut 2000 Kisses Wonderful Lipstick:
The packaging is simple but the metallic blue cap seems a bit cheap to me. Not a huge concern as the packaging works just fine. The shade name and number is mentioned at the base of the lip color. The wand is pretty simple, but not very sturdy. The sponge top is smaller compared to regular lip color sponges but that is okay as people with smaller lips will find this easier to work with.
The texture of the lip color is thick and creamy. I would rather call it a lip cream and not a liquid lipstick. It is pigmented but still 2 swipes are required to completely cover the lips. It settles to a complete matte finish in 1 minute or so and does not move or smudge at all. It is advisable not to purse the lips as it might end up looking patchy. One tip for people with very dry lips would be, apply lip balm, kiss on the back of your hand and then apply the lip color. You will have a more comfortable wear out of it.
Hazelnut is beige toned brown which might seem boring on the first go, but the beauty of the shade is the yellow undertone to it. The shade has this brightening effect on the face which is unlike regular browns; they tend to add age to the face. I quite like how beautifully neautral it is especially for the season we are in.
The staying power of the lip color is beyond imagination. It stayed on till the time I removed it with a makeup remover. I am so pleasantly surprised that they offer such long staying power at this price point!
