Who new men could lead to makeup? Well Sort of…My boyfriend’s sister introduced me to the brand Diana of London, and I didn’t know much about it so when I googled it I got to know a ton of interesting facts. In 2003 Cosmetics major Maxcare International has launched its Diana of London range in India. The brand, which was launched in 1992, has a turnover of more than $6.5 billion in Gulf countries alone. Maxcare has five major cosmetics brands which include Diana of London, England; Grosly Paris, France; Maxcare Paris, France; and Miss Claire, Germany.
This what the company claims about the Diana of London Pure addiction Lipstick
- Ultra soft texture, provides feeling of lightness & absolute comfort.
- Luminous & excellent color payoff.
- Velvety finish with vitamin E & anti-ageing properties
There are 20 shades to choose from. To check all the shades click here
Diana of London Pink Harmony Lipstick Shade: This is the first ever magenta colored lipstick I have tried & I must say it is definitely a gorgeous shade. It’s a light magenta colored lipstick with plum undertones. It doesn’t have any shimmer & has satin-velvety finish. I think this shade would suit most Indian skin tones. I just dab it to get a nice tint, when I’m using it during the day time & during night I swipe it 2-3 times to get a nice color. The picture of the swatch shows some shimmer here but there isn’t any shimmer at all.
About Diana of London Lipsticks: They indeed have a velvety finish & soft texture, glides well & makes my lips look moisturized & hydrated. This doesn’t dry out my lips or settles into fine lines.
Pigmentation & color pay off: This shade of pure addiction lipstick is extremely pigmented & has remarkable color pay off. It lasts at least 4-5 hours with just a few snacks; however it leaves a nice tint behind if you have a full meal. But this lipstick sometimes bleeds; this can be tackled by lining the lips with a pencil & filling the lips with the same lip pencil.
Fragrance: It has a slight vanilla fragrance which fades away after some time.
Price: Rs 445/-
Recommendation: For me, this is a must have color specially if you party a lot & love bright & long wear lipcolors which don’t dry out your lips, I’m sure it will look great on all skin tones & the perfect addition for a bride to be’s stash (Are you listening girls?)
