Lotus Herbals Pure Color Lipstick Carnation

Guest Review by Sristi (Medium Skin tone, Normal to Oily Skin)

There are some days when you are so lazy that you don’t feel like applying make-up one bit. But you don’t want to step out of home with a bare, dull face either. What do you do? You apply some kohl and your favorite lipstick (that which instantly brightens up your face) and you are good to go! I have 2-3 such lipsticks and the Lotus Pure Herbals Lipstick in Shade Carnation is one of them.
Lotus Herbal says: – ‘Pure Colors’ is a range of 12 exciting moisturizing lip colors in pinks and browns. There are 6 shades of each type. They have natural extracts of Jojoba and Aloe Vera. The unique product qualities are: – Uniform dispersion of pigments – Rich payoff – Smooth application.


Now, coming to the color,Lotus Herbals Carnation  Lipstick is  a beautiful warm  mix of peach, coral and pink. Okay, I don’t want to confuse you people! I think the color you get depends on the pigmentation of your lips. On my slightly pigmented lips, it shows up as a beautiful peachy-orange shade. On lighter lips, it might look more like peachy-pink shade. Nonetheless, it’s a very flattering color and will look good on all skin tones. As I mentioned earlier, it’s one of those lipsticks that lend an instant warmth and brightness to your face. It’s a must-have for the summers, I think.

The lipstick comes in a beige and gold packaging. The packaging is quite pretty but they could make it a little sturdier. It feels a little flimsy, sometimes. Texture wise, it’s very smooth and creamy. It glides on easily on the lips. The pigmentation is great too. A single swipe gives an even coat of rich color and the intensity is buildable as per your choice. The lipstick is quite moisturizing and does not dry my lips. It does not settle on the fine lines of lips and gives a nice, moisturized finish.

The lipstick has decent lasting power too!! It lasts on me for a decent 3.5-4 hours, meals included.  It starts fading evenly after about 3 hours and leaves behind a pretty peachy tint.
