ABOUT:Serenity is a beautiful warm pink, with hints of brown, a very comfortable non-drying matte formula that feels as if there is nothing on your lips! I named this color after a big inspiration of mine growing up; Sailor Moon. Yes I know its a children’s Japanese anime but it was one of the first shows that I ever saw that portrayed a powerful woman who goes from a dorky school girl to a crime fighting vixen and that really resonated with me! It takes me to a place of serenity in the same way that makeup does.

PRICE:$20.I got it for rs.1800 from La Makeup Affaire

SHADE:I am all about this shade at the moment.It is not a very unique shade but the formula and the feel of the lipstick is damn amazing.The shade is a warm nude-mauve with slightest hint of pink.The shade adds a classy touch to the face. ❤

MY VIEWS:The texture of the lipstick is amazingly smooth.It glides on like a dream.The lipstick is liquid in consistency but its not too runny or drippy.It applies well and quickly dries up.However,unlike my earlier experience of liquid lipsticks drying and making my lips lifeless,this lipstick is very comfortable and amazingly light weight.

It doesn’t feel as if you are wearing anything on your lips.The staying power is dam awesome.I applied it in the morning,like by 11-11.30 and it was there even by 7 in the evening.I love the staying power.It is fragrance-free which is another added bonus.The shade will suit fair to wheatish skin tone more as it has neutral tones to it.I like to pair this shade with champagne eyeshade on lids and a winged liner for day and neutral smokey eyes for night.

RATING:5/5

RECOMMEDNATION:In love with this beauty!!! Highly recommend checking this out!!!The shade is perfect for daily,office wear as well as for parties and night outs.Do give it a try!!
