It’s been so long since I’ve done a review. But, there wasn’t a single day when I did not check IMBB! Hehe! I had gone makeup shopping a couple of days back and by the time I came out of the store, my bag weighed quite a lot :p
I picked up a few lipsticks for my mom and myself; few eye-shadows and a lip pencil and a gloss. Let’s get started with the lipsticks first! I love Lotus’ sunscreen, so I figured I might like the makeup too. I haven’t tried any Lotus Herbals Lipstick before, so this is my first!
And, my first Lotus Herbals Lipstick that I am going to review today is “Pure Colors 673 Ruby Rust” Lipstick. Keep reading the review to know how it fared.
My Experience with Lotus Herbals Pure Colors 673 Ruby Rust Lipstick:
Packaging: The same bland Lotus Herbals packaging of light gold body. The packaging is very boring. The cap fits snugly and with a nice click. The bullet is gold in colour. The shade name (Ruby Rust) and number (673) are on a sticker attached at the bottom. Overall, travel friendly and compact.
Colour/Pigmentation: When I went to the Lotus counter, they did not have enough testers. So, I just blindly picked this up without knowing the shade. I guessed that it would be a reddish-pink shade. But, this is a red with gold shimmers on it. The shade is so good that it brightens up your whole face! Its an orangy-red colour. Although, I hate shimmers in my lippies, this one is an exception. The shimmers make my lips look full and they don’t look gaudy. The pigmentation is also good. Two swipes is enough to coat the lips an opaque orangy-red colour!
Texture: The texture of this lipstick is very creamy. But you do feel the shimmer, just a little bit. It glides on very easily even on chapped lips. It is a little bit drying when you keep it on for longer hours. A lip balm underneath would take care of that, though.
Staying Power: It stays on for 3-4 hours if you do not eat or drink anything. It starts fading with meals. You have to reapply after 2-3 hours. I think the staying power is decent without meals.
Smell/Taste: It does have a smell which isn’t bad. It’s so light that you do not notice it unless you sniff :p It has no taste what so ever.
Pros of Lotus Herbals Pure Colors 673 Ruby Rust Lipstick:
• Shade is suitable for all skin tones.
• Nice, creamy texture.
• Travel friendly packaging.
• 100% vegetarian.
• Wide range of shades to choose from and is easily available.
Cons of Lotus Herbals Pure Colors 673 Ruby Rust Lipstick:
• Some might find the staying power low, but I think it’s decent.
This shade will be perfect for the ‘shaadi season’. It brightens up the face, and I do recommend this shade to you!
