Lotus Herbals FloralSTAY Long-Lasting Lip Colour in Red Rover
Today, I am going to review my only lipstick from Lotus Herbals Range.
I love Lotus Herbals products as they are developed with active natural ingredients. I have been using Lotus Skin care range, Nail Paints and Sunscreens since long and love them. Till now, Lotus managed to deliver what they claim and they are also not heavy on the pocket. So, I really wanted to try something from their cosmetics range.
Nowadays, I have become fond of lipsticks and I want to own so many of them :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: . Thanks to IMBB for introducing me to the world of lipsticks.
I never knew there could be so many kind of lipsticks like matte finish, cream finish, frosty and that too in endless number of shades like peach, pink, coral, mauve, nude, brown, red.
What Does Lotus Herbals FloralSTAY™ Long-Lasting Lip Colour Claim?
Rs. 345 (Indian rupees) for 3.4 gm.
3 years from the date of manufacturing.
My Take on Lotus Herbals FloralSTAY™ Long-Lasting Lip Colour in Red Rover:
This is my first ever red lipstick. I love the color red. For me, it is a synonym for love. I love red in everything like flowers (red rose), nail paints, footwear, bangles and after watching the song “Wanna be my Chammak Challo,” from RA.ONE, I now love the red saree :love:
Because of my love with red color, I wanted to own a red lipstick :dumb:, but which one to buy, I had no idea and IMBB helped me to select the right one. I browsed so many articles on IMBB regarding lipsticks and one of them was by Rati on Lotus Lipsticks here and she had described Red Rover as “for those who are just starting with red, this is THE colour”. I fell for this line by our makeup expert (read Rati) and zeroed on Red Rover as my first ever red lipstick.
It comes in a baby pink card box. The lipstick case is also of pink color with a golden band in the centre.
The name of the lipstick is printed at the bottom. The lipstick has a creamy texture and glides smoothly on lips. It has very small golden shimmers which gives a brightening effect.

Lipstick might bleed a little on its own because of its creamy texture. I prefer lining my lips before applying a lipstick. If lip brush is used to apply the lipstick, you will get better finish.

The lipstick is quite sheer in single application, but the color can be built up (2-3 swipes) and doesn’t look cakey or over the top. Pigmented lips might require more swipes to cover the pigmentation. Try using compact on lips before applying lipstick and you will get better color on the lips with less swipes. The lipstick might be a little drying for dry lips. I can’t say for sure as I don’t have dry lips :yahoo: .
Its better to apply it on exfoliated and well-moisturized lips. Its staying power increases if I kiss a tissue to get off the excess color. The girls who love glosses can also apply a clear gloss on top of it. The lipstick has good staying power (5-6 hours) with meals in between and even after that, the color doesn’t fade completely, but a hint of color is still there on the lips. Its also contains SPF 10 to protect lips from tanning. So, for me it stands true to what it claims.
- Pretty Pink Packaging.
- Easy to apply because of its slim shape and creamy texture.
- Stays pretty long on lips (5-6 hours).
- Gives a matte effect and becomes kiss-proof after kissing a tissue.
- Transfers very less (read Kiss-Proof) compared to Maybelline Colorsensational lipsticks if first set with a compact.
- Has SPF 10.
- Doesn’t fade completely and leaves a hint of color on the lips.
- No color band on the packaging, so its difficult to locate the lipstick shade.
- Availability might be an issue.
- Bleeds a little after a meal.
- Not travel friendly as the cap is not tight enough.
- Not so many shades in this range to choose from.
- Complete list of ingredients missing.
This is how it looked on me.
Will I Buy Again?
I don’t think I would be able to finish this off and if I finish, I will like to try other red lipsticks.
Do I Recommend?
Yes , of course. I love love love this shade. It totally brightens up my face.
