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.


PROS of Lotus Herbals Lipstick in Carnation:

  • Pretty packaging.
  • Very affordable.
  • Smooth and creamy texture. Glides on easily.
  • Pigmentation is great. Get rich color in 1 swipe. Intensity of color is buildable.
  • Decently moisturizing. Does not dry my lips. People with extremely dry lips can wear it with a lip balm underneath.
  • Does not settle on fine lines.
  • Has a very mild, rosy fragrance.
  • 100% vegetarian.

CONS of Lotus Herbals Lipstick in Carnation

  • No color indication on the outside. So might be difficult to locate in huge stash of lipsticks.
  • Very dry lips might not find it adequately moisturizing.

Review Verdict: A-

Price: Rs. 245 for 4.2 gms.

Recommendation: –  Lotus Pure Color Lipstick in Shade Carnation is gorgeous peachy-coral shade and is a universally flattering color. It’s the perfect summer shade and is very inexpensive. I’d recommend this lipstick to anyone looking for a nice, bright lip color that adds warmth to the face! Also read the review on Lotus Herbals Peach Creme Lipstick

what is the difference between carnation and peach creme of this range?both look same to me.

Reply

mehak May 9, 2012 at 8:06 pm

I think this is more of a peachy orange pink, and thats more of an orangey rust ..
