Has anyone been outside in Delhi for more than 2 hours recently? Its weather to turn you into a   fried egg, and while I have been meandering through the lanes of Karol Bagh for Bridal Shopping (Seems fun, but in 45 degrees- not so much), I have tanned two shades darker than usual !  Which means a lot of colors I used to just lap up earlier, now almost seem like nudes on me !! Take Rust Crush for example…

Rust Crush is a purrty purrty peachy nude. In the tube, it looks like a beautiful papaya color but on the lips its much lighter so it ends up looking like a pretty peach-nude on me to be worn with smokey eyes.

Apart from this , these glosses are non sticky, lightweight and quite moisturizing. In terms of pigmentation- these are decently good, but with pigmented lips you may need to layer these on a tad bit. Plus with lighter colors like this one,they have a tendency to settle into lines but I didnt find the same problem with the darker or brighter colors.

Pros:

  • Moisturizing and comfortable to wear
  • Decently pigmented
  • Non sticky
  • Lasts about 4 hours on me, but I know some people find that these dont last that long
  • The color would be a nice peachy one on lighter skin tones and more of a nude on darker ones

Cons:

  • This color can settle into lines- its a problem with lighter colors anyway
  • Pigmented lips may find that they need an extra coat, but since these apply evenly i dont think thats a big deal.

Verdict: B

Price: Approx 700/-

Recommendation: I guess it ultimately comes down for value for money, and though these are really nice lipglosses, at 700 Rs i would expect  something even better than this. However if that is not a consideration- these are moisturizing, lightweight and decently pigmented but do have a tendency to settle into lines . Rust Crush is a peach-nude, which looks nice with heavier eyes on me (its lighter on the lips than in the tube)
