Texture: As it claims, the texture is indeed very lightweight. When you put it on, it feels like the lips are bare. The liquid goes on slightly glossy and dries to a perfectly matte finish. It may be a tad bit too drying on people who have really dry lips, so it is best to use a lip balm before using this lip color.
For the cheeks, a few dots on the cheeks is all you need to get a good color pay off.
Applicator: The pointed applicator makes even and complete application super easy, as you can even line the lips with the pointed end of the brush. We absolutely love the brush.
Longevity: We can't quite agree with the 'no touch-ups' claim, as after 3-4 hours, you would need to reapply it, since it starts to crease. But this isn't very important. It only needs to be done if you want your lipstick to look completely flawless.
Shades: We tried out the shades 'Rose Touch' and 'Cocoa Soft'. Rose touch is a soft nude pink shade, it can also be described as a dirty rose shade. It is a very subtle shade perfect for people who would like a pink shade for everyday wear and don't prefer light nude shades much.
Cocoa soft is the perfect quintessential 90s brown shade. And since we are seeing all the 90s trends make a comeback, this is a perfect shade to own. It is a medium-toned brown, again perfect for everyday wear.
Fragrance: This lipstick has the best fragrance ever. It smells like vanilla cake, and the smell lasts quite long too. We just hope you don't end up wanting to eat it!
The product is quite similar to the soft matte lip creams by NYX, with a shade range a lot more suitable for the Indian skin tones, as a few of the NYX shades can wash out Indian faces.
- Highly pigmented
- Matte finish
- Reasonably priced
- Can be a little drying
