Recently, I bought quite a few shades from Lotus Herbals matte lipstick range. In this post, I would be reviewing the shade “Melon Flirt.”
My Experience with Lotus Herbals Melon Flirt Pure Colors Matte Lipstick:
It’s a boring packaging with an all gold packaging. The cap fits snugly and with a nice click. The bullet is gold in colour. The shade name and number are mentioned on a sticker attached at the bottom.
“Melon Flirt” is a nice everyday sort of pink shade. It is a blue-based pink but not very stark. It suits my skin tone and doesn’t wash me out as it is a dark shade. Usually blue-based pinks are light enough to do that, but I’m glad this one is a slightly darker pink shade. It is a very wearable shade. It is nicely pigmented, you just need 2-3 swipes to get a nice shade on the lips.
This lipstick is the most comfortable matte lipstick I have tried, but I must say it isn’t 100% matte. It is kind of like satin matte. Some shades are more matte than others. This goes on very smoothly on the lips and doesn’t dry out the lips even after hours of wear. It has a gel matte texture and not powder matte which is the kind of matte lipsticks I love.
It stays on for 5-6 hours on my lips. It does fade a bit when you eat or drink something. You might need touch ups after every 4 hours. After like about 4 hours, it starts to settles in the fine lines on the lips. To avoid this, you can exfoliate the lips prior to the application, but this is a very forgiving matte lipstick.
Pros of Lotus Herbals Melon Flirt Pure Colors Matte Lipstick:
- Lovely shade.
- Gel matte consistency.
- Lovely texture.
- Goes on very smoothly and doesn’t dry out the lips.

Cons of Lotus Herbals Melon Flirt Pure Colors Matte Lipstick:

- Not 100% matte lipstick.
