Thanks a lot for such wonderful words at my last OOTD.
Another one is following soon, but before that I want to review one lipcolor for you all. We all know how special the first red lipstick is to every girl. But more often than not, we are hesitant in buying costlier ones at the first time as we are not sure of ourselves. On Neha’s recco, I will be buying the Chambor Rubis rouge lipstick soon and that will be my second red lippy after Elle 18 rosy glow. But before that, I will review my sis’s red lippy for all those who would like to try out an affordable red lipstick first. Read on to see how it fared:
Price: Rs. 225
My experience with Lakme Freespirit Lipcolor – D414 Manish Malhotra:
The shade looks like red with a tinge of maroon on the bullet. But once swatched, it is a gorgeous warm red. It is the kind of red which would brighten up any complexion. There is no shimmer in it, something which I love about it. The texture is creamy and buttery. You would not need to apply a lipbalm under it. It glides on beautifully over the lips. The staying power is average. It stays intact for 3 to 4 hours, after which it starts to fade, but it does leave a red tint on lips. This staining might be an issue as you will need a good make up remover to remove it completely. It also transfers on cups like any other Lakme enrich lipstick. The finish is not matte ( bad news for matte lovers) but the glossy sheen can be reduced to some extent by blotting it with a tissue, not at the cost of color.
Check the wrist swatches. Notice that although one swipe is enough to cover even pigmented lips, the shade is buildable. In the lip swatches, you will see that the sheen in the last pic is a bit less than rest of the pics. So, this lipstick can be used as a subtle red too.
Finally this is how it looks on me. I know I have thin lips, and bold colors make them look thinner, but I could not resist myself from wearing such a gorgeous color!
