My Experience with Lotus Make-Up Valencia Orange Pure Colors Matte Lipstick:
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a pretty beige-golden color tube and it is a sturdy packaging that is easy to carry around. But the tube is same as their creamy range; I was expecting a different matte packaging. It looks pretty common. Otherwise, it is a nice one that also has a colored coded sticker at the bottom along with the shade name.
Shade: This range comes with 10 different shades and all the shades are really nice. The shade’ Valencia Orange’ is a lovely peachy orange shade that looks extremely nice on my lips. This is such a wearable orange shade. I just love such soft natural shade that goes with any makeup. It will suit best on fair to medium skin tones. It looks like a fresh and summery kind of shade. Also the shade doesn’t have any shimmer in it.
Pigmentation: This shade is not so pigmented; I need to build up the color on my lips. One swipe provides sheer shade and it needs slots of swipes. Also it is little difficult to spread the shade evenly on lips. It can’t hide pigmented lips, but as a matte lipstick I feel that this whole range is little less pigmented.
Texture & Quality: Company claims that, it’s a matte lipstick but it is more of a creamy matte lipstick. The texture is super smooth creamy type that glides easily on the lips. It makes my lips soft and moisturized, and feels very light on the lips. It has a balm-like formula and that’s why it is not a 100% matte. After a few minutes of application, the lipstick settles down to a nice, creamy- matte texture. Again, I was expecting a better ‘matte’ finish.
It never feels dry or patchy on the lips and never highlights those dry patches. It behaves like a normal, creamy lipstick except that extra-glossy finish. But I like its non-drying texture that suits all skin types. The lipstick has a nice, mild smell that is good. The lipstick never creases and never looks messy but it does transfer.
Staying Power: This color decently stays around 5 hours on my lips. But it’s a light shade so it starts fading after 4 hours and then it settles in fine lines slightly. It can’t survive lunch but it never looks messy on lips. It is easy to remove the shade from lips and it never leaves deep stain.
Overall: I totally love this pretty shade and it looks very nice with all kinds of makeup. I like its non-drying creamy matte texture still I always prefer the pure matte finish. Wish it had little better pigmentation.
