I will be reviewing today, my one and only lipstick from the brand Makeup Forever Lipstick #203. Since, this is priced near about Mac lipsticks, my expectations were high, lets see how it fared.
Price: Rs. 950
Makeup Forever Lipstick #203 is a gorgeous bright bold neon pink, it borders on looking like fuchsia and it is definitely a hot pink shade for every season. Though the color is stunning, it is not difficult to find affordable dupes too. My Lakme # 149, its not exact match but its near about hot pink too. The packaging is definitely different and so as the shape of the actual lipstick, like Revlon Colorbust Lipsticks (I don’t know who’s was the original idea!) but its nice, no difficulties in application.
Makeup Forever Lipstick #203 has a satin finish and I have read many reviews online saying it is moisturizing and not drying at all. However, for me it is very drying in texture, it is as drying as Mac’s Ruby Woo. Though Ruby Woo is a classic and looks stunning, I am ok to go through pain of moisturizing and all but for MUFE 203, I am not so willing to take so much pains. The drying texture is definitely a turn off.
The lipstick is well pigmented and can be easily worn lightly to medium intensity to full intensity. It lasts easily for 3-4 hours before fading and survives small meals. After fading it leaves a beautiful light pink stain behind which stays on for much longer time.
Final Verdict: Makeup Forever Lipstick #203 is a beautiful bold neon pink and looks stunning but drying texture is something that puts me off to wear it often. And for the price, I rather add Rs. 40 more and buy a MAC lipstick. Not a winner for me.
