Hi lovely ladies!!!
After checking out the newly launched shades from Lotus Ecostay range, I couldn’t stop myself from picking up a few more shades apart from the orange lip color. Coral and pink lippies are my next favourites after orange lipsticks. So, after Orange Dream, my next pick had to be a coral lipstick which I’m currently in love with.
Lotus Herbals have come up with 9 new lipstick shades- Maroon Mash, Persian Pink, Coral crave, Spicy Red, My Melon, Coral Candy, Magenta Magic, Me ‘N’ Mauve and Orange Dream. And, today I will be reviewing the shade Coral Candy.
Lip colour is a preservative free, natural, long lasting and hydrating lip colour. One swip and your lips are ready for a healthier shine all day long without any loss of moisture, ensuring a flawless finish. SPF 20 gives UV Protection.
How to Use:
Outline your lips with the lipliner. Hold the tube of lipstick to your lips and carefully apply it within the lines you drew with your lipliner. Start from the center of your lips and brush the lipstick outward, filling in all the gaps. For a more precise application, use a lipstick brush. If you go outside the lines of your lipliner, wipe the excess lipstick away with a tissue. Look in the mirror to make sure that you’re filling in the lines correctly. Applying lipstick without a mirror can lead to silly consequences.

My Experience with Lotus Herbals Ecostay Coral Candy Long Lasting Lip Colour:
Lotus Herbals Ecostay Long Lasting Lip Colour comes in a beautiful cardboard packaging with the expiry date and claims pertaining to the product mentioned on it. It claims to be preservatives free, but no ingredient list is mentioned to cross check.
The outer box opens to reveal the lipstick that comes in a satin pink covering which is similar to the color of the outer carton. The lipstick by itself comes in a metallic pink slender packaging with a long cap that closes securely with a click mechanism. Overall, the packaging looks classy and is sturdy and travel friendly. The shade name is mentioned on the bottom of the lipstick tube, and that is the only way you can find out the shade, so you need to store the lipstick upside down in order to easily pick the shade from your makeup stash in case you have more than one lipstick from this range.
Coral Candy is a gorgeous bright coral pink shade without any shimmer or sheen. The name ‘Coral Candy’ given to it is apt for the shade it is. The color comes out exactly as how it looks in the tube. This color screams out ‘summer’, and all skin toned beauties can rock this shade in the coming summer beautifully. The color, sure is bright, but isn’t neon. It brightens up the face instantly and perks up the complexion and looks stunning, even if worn without any other makeup on the face. In case you find it difficult to carry the shade, you can try to tone it down by blotting it with a tissue paper.
In case you have tried the Purestay Lipstick (as the range was previously called), let me tell you that the texture of this new lipstick range (Ecostay) has definitely improved. The texture of this lipstick is creamy and not hard like the purestay lipsticks. Though, there is slight initial tugging when applied, it goes away in subsequent applications. It isn’t a buttery, creamy lipstick. So, you need to thoroughly exfoliate your lips beforehand in order to let the lipstick glide easily without much pulling. The color settles to a matte finish within a few minutes and doesn’t bleed or transfer. It isn’t a moisturizing lipstick, but doesn’t dry out the lips either.
Pigmentation of this lipstick is amazing. One swipe gives rich, opaque color to the lips. In case you have pigmented lips, you can smear a few more swipes to let the color pop on your lips. Even if you layer 3-4 coats of the lipstick, it still feels really light weight and you will not feel like you have anything on your lips.
The color lasts for around five to six hours on my lips without drying them out. It survives meals, snacks and drinks with some fading from the middle of the lips. But, that can be retouched with a fresh coat of lipstick. It leaves an equally pretty stain behind which can be easily removed.
One thing that really bothered me about the old Purestay range of lipsticks was their smell that was overpowering and even headache inducing. But thankfully, this new Ecostay range doesn’t have that annoying smell that lingers for a long time. Instead, it is a soft powdery smell that fades away within a minute and doesn’t bother the sensitive nose at all.
It has plus points of being preservative free with added benefit of SPF 20 and being 100% vegetarian.
