My take on ‘You took my love’:
Available I think still on Jabong, I picked this just out of curiosity. The shade and the matte texture both looked appealing and yes, I was correct. From the time I used it once, I am hooked. The lip lacquer is just bang on in terms n shade, texture and longevity. And now I own 4 of these :D.
Shade: ‘You took my Love’ (oh man, I love the name) is a Hot fuchsia. The color is Bold and Brilliant. It is a blue toned bright pink which leans more towards pink in natural light but in bright flash lights the lilac undertones are clearly visible. Anyways the shade is just gorgeous and it would suit fair to medium skin tones very well. It’s a super pretty party wear bright pink that will alone enhance your complete look.
Texture: This velvet lip lacquer applies like an opaque gloss in a single swipe but within seconds it dries to a bold matte finish. Once dried, I find it lacquer to be kiss proof and totally smudge proof. It is highly pigmented and a single swipe is all you need to add color to your lips. Although it is matte still I haven’t seen it setting in fine lines or making your lips drier. It feels completely lightweight and sits comfortably on the lips.
Staying power: I applied it after lunch and till dinner, after 6 hours too, the lip lacquer looked as fresh as new. There wasn’t even a hint of fading. After dinner, I could see the color fading from the middle of the lips. So keep it handy if you are going to have a full meal with this on. It fades away without leaving a stain behind.
Packaging: The lip lacquer comes in a metallic golden outer cardboard pack with all the necessary details mentioned on it. The product comes in a plastic see-through pack with a screw cap. The foam applicator is long and slender and picks enough color for a one time application. Overall, a good packaging.
