How to use it?
  • Start at the centre of the upper lip and move outwards toward the corners.
  • Then, apply the lipstick to the lower lip.
  • Blend to get the perfect finish.
Price & Packaging-

It comes in a really cute matte black packaging with a golden cardboard box. The brand name is embossed in gold on the lipstick. The packaging is luxurious and at the same time really cute & handy. It closes well and is not made of any flimsy quality products. It reminds of the MAC lipstick.

It is priced at Rs.299 which is really affordable for such a good quality of product & from such a reputed brand. I got myself from Buy1Get1 offer going on at nykaa. You should definitely look for such offers & discounts.

 Shelf life-

It is of 3 years, so even if you don’t wear lipstick on everyday basis it would last you a long time.

Longevity-  

It stays for good 4-5 hours & after that it starts to fade away from the centre. If you are wearing a dark shade from the range then it might leave a stain on your lips & depends individually for every colour.

My Experience-

I got the shades Buff Nude-05 & Alluring pink-18.

Buff Nude-

  • It is a really nice nude lipstick with a brownish pink undertone.
  • It would look flattering on every skin tone.
  •  Its really comfortable on the lips, soft & weightless as the name suggests. You will feel like as if you are not wearing anything on your lips.
  •  It’s a bullet lipstick so it will transfer a bit.
  • It would look great for everyday use or however you might wear it depends completely on you.

Alluring Pink –

  • It’s a bright cherry red coloured bullet lipstick with a bright pink undertone.
  • It would look gorgeous on both fair to medium & dusky skin tones, all you need is the confidence to wear it.
  • It’s a very vibrant colour to make that bold statement look.
  • It does stain your lips after it starts fading.
  • Rest of the things are the same for both the shades.
Pros-
  • Very affordable
  • Easily available
  • Bullet form so easy to apply
  • Non drying
  • Very comfortable to wear
  • Huge shade range
  • Always available on discounts
  • Lasts for good 4-5hrs
  • Not extremely matte but is a gorgeous texture
  • Luxurious packaging
  • It comes with colour coded outer packaging.
Cons-
  • It does transfer a bit which is completely fine for any bullet lipstick. I love to wear it with that flaw, which is actually not that of a big deal for me.
  • Other than that, there is not even a single point that I could make out which I don’t like about the lipstick.
Would I recommend this?

Definitely YES! I would also buy more shades of this range. I just completely love the lipstick especially the shade Buff Nude-02. Its like my kind of nude shade & I just can’t get over it.
