Hello ladies! Red or different shades of red lipsticks look very attractive and stylish; I am a freak about bright color lipsticks from fuchsia to magenta, red comes in between them though. Red is one color that can go with any dress and of any color. I already have many shades of fuchsia and magenta and red, so I wanted to try some different shades of red.
Last month while planning shopping online, I bought three different shades of red lipstick from Coloressence and I am going to review three of them one by one. Today, I will be reviewing one in the shade Hot Look.
Price and quantity:
Rs. 150 for 4 g.
The lipstick comes in a very chic and stylish bullet with black and silver packaging. The cover is very tight; I don’t like lipsticks with loose cover, day by day they become so loose that they keep falling now and then. So, one point goes to this lipstick. The smell is pretty nice, reminds me some of the lipsticks from my childhood.
The bullet is stiff and a bit dry. Dryness makes it difficult to apply on the lips. The color is the most appealing and eye-catching color, not exactly siren red or blood red. Apart from the color, the other thing I like about this lipstick is it is matte finish. I love matte lips so much that sometimes, I blot the moisture of the lipstick after applying my favorite lipsticks.
Though the brand claims that this is moisture lip color and keeps the lips moisture and nourished, I did not find any of these things in my lipstick. Actually, my lipstick was completely opposite to its description, dry and matte (though nourishing would have been good for lips but yet it does not bother me at all).
Now, the staying power is quite good, for 4-5 hours. It survives my eating sessions and that’s another win. Trust me, I always forgot that I am wearing makeup and do blunders like, rubbing my eyes, or wiping sweat off my face ferociously. So, this lipstick is quite a strong one on the lips.
This lipstick is very proper for night and evening outings but if wore with the right attire and makeup, it will look stunning in day outings also. Overall, I love this lipstick for being it matte and the shade is very lovely too.
