Spekta Cosmetics Lipstick Review & Swatches

Spekta Cosmetics was launched in September, 2018 by two highly driven women, both super ambitious and passionate about creating premium quality makeup that’s affordable. And they have done the job compassionately in a very short span of time. The brand has grown & made a place in the hearts of people. The brand has basically 2 line of products Shimmer which is a limited edition & Matte that has made hearts of millions go crazy about the shades & quality of the product. These lipsticks are made considering the Indian Skin tones & compliments them perfectly.

Talking about the shades I got is MATTE SAUCY- 102 & SHIMMER BRAT- 501.

The best part about these lipsticks are that they are Vegan & Cruelty Free that makes me feel a bit more happy on seeing such new & affordable brands considering this point as a major one.

Matte Lipstick

Spekta Cosmetics has launched premium, no-shine, matte lipstick colors which are infused with vitamin E, cocoa butter and shea butter to keep your lips hydrated all day. The long lasting matte lipstick lasts for up to 8 hours without any touch-ups and is highly pigmented.

Shimmer Lipstick

Spekta Cosmetics has launched creamy shimmer lipsticks which give the lips a gorgeous pearl effect. The Spekta shimmer lipstick is infused with Vitamin E, Cocoa Butter, Castor Oil and Olive Butter to keep the lips moisturised all day.

Packaging-

These are solid bullet lipsticks with Black packaging that is quite sturdy with silver glitters scattered at the top part of the bullet. The packaging is nice with the branding on it. It comes with a black sticker that denotes the colour & its number but for me I feel like It should be colour coordinated because it’s something that’s necessary as everytime you don’t have to open the bullet to see its colour & I hope that Spekta cosmetics will take this into consideration & would improve as a whole.

The outer packaging is of abstract printed cardboard box which is again a treat for our eyes.

Price & Quantity-

These retail for Indian Rupees 550 but you can definitely get on discounts for 3.7gm of product which is okay for the price you are paying & is the standard quantity.

SWATCHES-
Matte shade range-

Currently it comes in 8 matte shades ranging from Red to orange & Pinks to nudes. All the shades are beautiful in their own terms & texture. I will put the image of all the shades from their website as well as the shades which I got & their swatches.

Shimmer Shade Range-

There are 4 metallic Shimmer shades that look equally beautiful on the skin.

Ingredients-

Not all the ingredients are mentioned on their website or on the packaging but some of them are- Vitamin E, Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter

How to Use it-

The best way to wear this lipstick is to apply a thin layer of lip balm followed by a dab of foundation/concealer and then the lipstick.

Shelf Life-

2-3 years depending on the manufacturing date & the time when you buy it.

Longetivity-

The matte shades stays for good 5-6hrs after which they start to fade beautifully & they do leave a tint especially the darker shades. Some of you might like it whereas some will not. They do smudge like any other bullet lipstick but they are really matte & comfortable, non-drying on the lips.

The Shimmer one’s also smudge but a little more than the matte one’s as they are shimmery so that’s completely fine with that. You will have to reapply after every 3-4 hours with normal eating.

My Experience-

I got 2 shades Matte Saucy-102 & Shimmer Brat-501.

Talking about Matte Saucy- 102 –

As shown on their website it is an orange red colour but I feel it’s a pure red colour with a bit of orange undertone it would look gorgeous on every skin tone.

It does smudge a bit but is completely matte, comfortable & non drying.

Shimmer Brat- 501 –

It is pink shimmery colour with purple undertone again it’s a flattering colour for almost all skin tones.

It does smudge a bit more than the matte one’s but is again very comfortable on the lips. It’s a limited edition so if you need it then you should order it rightnow or else will be out of stock.

I would suggest you to go for the shade MVP which is a nude sort of shimmer shade which is gorgeous on its own & also as a top coat.

Pros-

Affordable

Easily available on their website though they are not available offline (at least what I know about it) but I am sure that they will be available offline too super soon.

Also available on amazon & at nykaa also

Not a vast variety of shades but the shade range is quite appreciable.

Matte Shades are completely matte but shimmer one’s are also good

The texture is great.

Non- drying

Comfortable to wear

Smudges a bit but its okay with me as they are bullet lipsticks.

Packaging is nice.

Affordable plus you get a good discount every now & then.

Vegan

Cruelty free

No animal testing done.

Paraben Free

Sulphate free

Cons-

I don’t feel that there is any problem with the quality of the product but the only thing I would like them to consider is to make the colour coded stickers on the lipstick’s. As it would be more easy to use them.

Would I Recommend it?

Definitely YES! The shades, texture, formula everything is amazing I would buy more shades from the brand & would love to see the new launches too. These are even better than many renowned brands products especially when you get them on discounts.
