Hi beautiful girls!
This is my first review on IMBB and I am super duper excited. I am following IMBB for the last six months and I must say IMBB has changed my life a lot for I have more knowledge about beauty and makeup now. Let’s get started with the review of Lotus Herbals Ecostay Magenta Magic Long Lasting Lip Colour and find out if I love it or not!
Lotus Herbals Ecostay Long Lasting Lip Colour is a preservative free, natural, long lasting and hydrating lip colour. One swipe 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 Magenta Magic Long Lasting Lip Colour:
Lotus Herbals Ecostay Long Lasting Lip Colour comes in a beautiful rose gold colored cardboard packaging with the expiry date and claims mentioned on it. It claims to be preservative free, but no ingredients are mentioned. The lipstick comes in a satin, mauveish pink cover which is similar to the outer carton. The lipstick comes in a metallic pink slender tube with a long cap that closes securely with a click mechanism. I love the packaging as it is very classy yet sturdy and travel friendly. The shade number and name are mentioned at the bottom of the lipstick, so you have to store it upside down if you have many of these.
Magenta Magic is a gorgeous maroon shade with pink undertones without any shimmer or sheen. But, it is not a deep maroon or a mature maroon. The colour shows up exactly how it looks in the tube. This colour will suit all skin tones. It brightens up the face instantly and looks beautiful even if you don’t have any other makeup product on.
The texture of this lipstick is creamy, but there is a slight tugging when applied which goes away in subsequent applications. It isn’t a buttery lipstick, so you need to exfoliate your lips before applying it. Ladies with very dry lips should apply a lip balm before applying the lipstick, otherwise it will settle into lines and accentuate dry, flaky areas. The colour settles to a matte finish within few minutes and doesn’t bleed. But, it transfers a little bit…but only ittu sa! 😛
The pigmentation of this lipstick is good. One swipe gives rich and opaque color. In case of pigmented lips, you have to swipe it 2-3 times on your lips. Even if you layer it 3-4 times, it still feels light.
The lasts around 5-6 hours on my lips without drying them out. It survives a full meal, light snacks, drinks with some fading from the middle of the lips. Even after fading, it leaves a beautiful stain on the lips which I have to remove with a makeup remover. This lipstick has very light powdery smell which is not at all irritating (I love it! :*) which fades within a minute and won’t bother sensitive noses at all. It contains SPF 20 and it is 100% vegetarian and preservative free (:* :* :*).
