RED LIPSTICKS !!
YOU MEAN RED???!!
These were my reactions when some of my friends suggested me to use a red lipstick.I know, many of you had this type of allergies when you were made to think about wearing a red lipstick, atleast me :P . In a curious search of pure red lipstick, I was made to land on this stunning shade. This review is for you Supriya, hope you like it :)
PRICE: Rs.275( earlier Rs.225,duhhh!!! )
QUANTITY: 4.2 ml
For a rich lip colour with a creamy shine, the Velvett Matte Lipstick, available in 45 stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvett Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.
WHAT I SAY:
PACKAGING: Colorbar Velvet Matte range lipsticks need no introduction. Almost many of you knew they come in a cylindrical tube like packaging, with a plastic cap. It doesn’t look cheap. The great advantage of these lipsticks are that, they have colored ends which makes location easy when you have many lipsticks from the same range or even when you are in hurry.
HOT HOT HOT- As the name says, it is actually HOT. It’s a neutral pure red color. It is a shade that makes you r lips yell” look at me, look at me” to turn out all the other heads on you. It compliments my warm skin tone beautifully. It is a bright and bold shade,that will brighten up the face instantly. Any skintone, ranging from fair-dusky can carry this shade. This is one of the shades that can make you more confident in front of a huge crowd. It is bright. It is bold.
TEXTURE, PIGMENTATION AND STAYING POWER:
Though the brand says VELVET MATTE it is not velvety though. However the texture is smooth. There is no tugging or pulling on the lips, but when you don’t use a lip balm, you will suffer badly because of its heavily drying formula. A moisturizing lip balm under the lipstick will take care of it. It doesn’t look matte after the application,the glossiness stays for an hour and then fades making the lips looking matte. It keeps the lips moisturized around 2-3hrs, after which there is a need to use a lipbalm or a lipgloss above it. It is intensely pigmented. With 1-2swipes you look like a diva, and with more than that, you turn up like a red lava :P . It can cover even the so badly pigmented lips. It stays on and on for around 6-7hrs. It fades evenly. Now if you ask me if I worn it for that long, I wore it at night and slept. I woke up around 7am in the morning, and it was still sitting on my lips comfortably. Now comes a main problem, the removing part. You definitely need a makeup remover to remove it completely and it stains so badly.
· Easy on the pocket and easily available
· Intensely pigmented
· Staying power is awesome for 6+ hours
· Bold and bright neutral red color
· Dries out lips after 2 hours
· Stains so badly and hard to remove
MY RATING: 4/5
I definitely recommend you to get atleast one shade from this range. They are super affordable, stay for a long time and have a best quality for the price. HOT HOT HOT is a beautiful, stunning, bold and bright chilly red shade.
