Hey all you girlies…
How are you doing? Me? I am splurging on fruit juices one after the other- watermelon-orange-papaya-cranberry-etc. etc. I cannot do without them in such horrid summers.
Now I should hop on to the review. Well, I gave you a break from my “VOV after VOV” reviews. I reviewed three other things that were not from VOV but you know I have a lot of them to review yet. So here goes one more.
Price: INR 210 for 4.2 grams
Ingredients: castor oil, candelilla wax, lanolin, carnoba wax, bees wax, petroleum jelly, propyl paraben, BHT, vitamin E.
My experience with VOV Ultra Smooth Moisturizing Lipstick in 531 Fashionable:
This range of VOV has some wonderful names for their shades. This one is called fashionable. Isn’t it cute? The shade is indeed for fashionable pink lovers.
This range comes in a transparent glass see through packaging which is really attractive. This is not as fragile as you may think it is. It is a thick sturdy packaging with a tight click lock. It is travel friendly and wouldn’t be damaged at all in your handbag. Also, it is easy to find on in a heap of lipsticks that we sometimes create in our cupboards. 😛
Coming to the shade, I would describe it as rose pink with peach undertones. It is one wonderful shade which lifts up my face and I love wearing this shade often. If you use blushes, add a peach blush with this lipstick and you will love your face. This shade will interest most categories of women. Like there is a category of shades that some particular ladies like and then there is one category which attracts almost all women alike. This one falls in the latter category. Also, since this particular one suits me so much I will never let this shade vanish from my vanity. It can be used by women with pigmented lips too. The color can be built up in one or maximum two swipes. If you layer it on, it would bleed a little.
The lipstick is very smooth to apply and it glides on its own- going true to its name. The freshly applied lipstick has a buttery sheen on the lips and it turns a little dry after a while but not completely matte. No matter how long you wear it, it would never give you that dry feeling that most long staying lipsticks give. It stayed on me for good 6 hours surviving a meal and numerous water sips. It transfers a little and fades uniformly.
Now, when you purposely sniff the bullet closely, it would remind you of a vanilla ice-cream but otherwise I did not notice any smell while applying. The previous range I reviewed did not give off any smell even when sniffed closely. I would still prefer this range since it is definitely better quality wise than the previous range. The price is also fair.
In short, they are giving you a complete package at a decent price. As you can see I have hoarded so many shades, I would recommend you too to buy these as soon as you spot them at your nearby store. I wish they overcome the availability issue.

IMBB rating: 4.5/5
p.s. I am not wearing anything on my face in the pic, not even my dabur uveda cream- just the liner and this lipstick.
Until next time, take care!
