My love for lipsticks is growing day by day! I came across this product on my online shopping spree recently and I just could not stop myself from purchasing this lovely lip color from Seventeen. So dear friends, here is another review of a long wear lipstick that never lets you down, no matter what you eat or drink!
Lips with color that lasts…all day long!
• Long lasting rich color
• Does not mark cups or glasses
• Does not dry the lips
• Fast drying and precise application
• Parabens Free
My Experience with Seventeen 05 Habiscus All Day Lip Color:
The packaging of the lip color is amazing as it consists of two products – the lip color and the top gloss in single packaging. It comes in a sturdy, long tube with lip color and gloss at either ends. The lip color is very pigmented as one stroke gives intense color. The sponge wand and the gloss brush are connected with the main tube and the small bottles of lip color and gloss can be separated too. The shade number of the lipcolor is mentioned at the end of the color tube while the shade name is printed somewhere in the middle of the tube’s length.
This lipcolor serves the purpose of matte and glossy lipstick both. Again, before applying the lip color it is important to moisturize the lips if matte finish is preferred as it dries up and become tacky. The lipcolor has a liquid gel type consistency that glides on the lips very smoothly and as mentioned, very pigmented! If you see the swatch closely, you’ll realise that there isn’t much difference between single and double swipes. The top gloss is in gel form.
Long wear lip colors are my first preference. I am always in search of very pigmented, long wearing lipsticks. Though, I purchased it from a website, I was lucky enough to get the desired pigmentation. The color is really flattering for me as I am a warm undertone person. The application is very smooth and pigmented. Even a single swipe imparts decently pigmented product. Its lasting capacity is about seven hours without touch up and even after having meals.
On the downside, it dries out the lips, accentuates the flaws and gets settled into the fine lines of the lips .The gloss over the lip color keeps the lips moisturized all day long. Even the top gloss can be used as a lip balm itself. It has a sweet, floral scent to it but it doesn’t linger.
Pros of Seventeen 05 Habiscus All Day Lip Color:
• Long lasting rich color.
• Does not stain cups or glasses.
• Can be worn as a matte and glossy lip color both.
• Fast drying.
• Precise application.
• Parabens free.
Cons of Seventeen 05 Habiscus All Day Lip Color:
• Doesn’t contain SPF.
• Tends to dry lips.
• Settles into fine lines.
• No suitable for very dry lips.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Seventeen 05 Habiscus All Day Lip Color?
Yes, it’s worth the money!
It is a good product that gives dual effects. And, this range has numerous other lip shades to choose from.
