For Best Results
Apply your lipcolor by starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.
The shade: It is a pure crimson shade, perfect for fall. It is a maroon with red undertones, very wearable for nightouts and functions. It goes very well with ethnic wear, especially my kanchipuram silk sarees ( Ghosh! I can’t have enough of them). I am totally in love with the shade. Warm skin toned girls should definitely pick it up. It is a versatile shade and looks very classy. It is my personal favourite from the whole bunch.
Texture: I would not call it a matte lipstick. It is more of a satin finish lipstick. The texture is smooth and soft on the lips. It is insanely pigmented and one swipe is all you need for the deep red pout.
Staying power: Just fantastic. It stays forever. It does not come off easily. You would need two cotton rounds of makeup remover to take it off completely. Even with food, drinks, water, it stayed for more than 8 hours on my lips. I honestly cannot keep a lipstick on my lips for more than that. However am sure the 14 Hr claim is also true, atleast for this particular shade.
Final Words: The only con is that it stains the teeth. Yes, you have to be careful in application else you would have red teeth. I scared myself smiling in front of the mirror with red teeth. It takes sometime to set but once it sets, it doesn’t transfer. I am planning to get the fuschia as well.
