  • honey chestnut: a brown with slight red undertones.

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of all the lipsticks is very soft and they glide on easily on lips.

All the shades are decently pigmented ad devoid of any shimmer.The finish is creamy and glossy.

They are very moisturizing and does not settle in the lip lines.

These can be applied sheerly or can be built up to almost full coverage lipsticks.I like the fact that these don’t leave any stain on lips.

Staying power is around 3-4 hours.

PROS:

  • creamy texture that glides on smoothly on lips.
  • the shades available are wearable.
  • it keeps the lips soft and moisturised.
  • doesn’t on leave a stain on lips.
  • the packaging is classy and travel-friendly.
  • doesn’t settle in the lip lines.
  • can be used by those who have pigmented lips.

 

CONS:

  • low staying power.
  • can be purchased through a Representative only.

RATING: 4.5/5

RECOMMENDATION:yes,these are definitely worth buying as the shade range,quality and packaging is a real steal!!

 

 

 

Lotus Herbals Purestay Lip gloss-Nude Love review & swatches

???????????????????????????????

WORDS FROM LOTUS: Purestay Lip Gloss is a lightweight, high-shine, perfectly pigmented preservative free lip gloss with rich, long lasting colour and nourishing shine that creates the appearance of fuller lips.

 

PRICE: Rs. 395 for 8 gms which is way too expensive considering that Lotus herbals always provides quality products at reasonable price.

 

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Evening Primrose Oil, Grape Seed Oil and Vitamin E

PACKAGING: The packaging is quite classy and sophisticated . A large rectangular body with a metallic cap.A wand applicator which is fine.The shade name is provided at the bottom of the lip gloss.

???????????????????????????????

SHADE: The shade is a prefect n*de color apt to be worn with smokey eyes.It is a muted brown with mauvish tint and has silver shimmer in it which is very much visible but comfortable.

???????????????????????????????

TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER: The texture of the lip gloss is quite thick and this is the reason that it has better staying power.I feels a little bit sticky when applied but gets comfortable on lips after a few minutes.The shimmer present is really minute although very much visible.The shimmer doesn’t settle in the lip lines neither it is gritty or harsh on lips.

???????????????????????????????

Nude love being a lighter shade isn’t a highly pigmented shade but it is has good coverage considering the shade it is.

I need 2 quotes of the shade to cover my lips.

???????????????????????????????

Staying power is around 3 hours.It doesn’t leave a tint or stain behind as it is a lighter shade.

???????????????????????????????

2 things that i don’t like much are the texture of the lipgloss. It is too thick for my liking and feels heavy if overapplied. The second thing is the presence of shimmer which becomes uncomfortable on lips when the gloss wears off.

 

PROS:

  • a great everyday wear shade.
  • doesn’t wash out my skin tone.
  • stays for about 3 hours.
  • the shimmer present in it isn’t harsh on lips.
  • adds glossiness to lips.
  • classy packaging.
  • travel-friendly.

???????????????????????????????

CONS:

  • the shimmer present it the gloss sticks even after the gloss wearsoff.
  • expensive.
  • feels heavy on lips when apllied.
  • the texture is too thick.
  • not very moisturising.

RATING: 3/5

RECOMMENDATION:Nude love is a nice everyday wear shade but the Texture is very thick and very slightly heavy on lips.Lotuspherbals purestay range had some great gems especially there foundation.There are great shade in the ligloss range too.You should definitely check out this shade or other shades!!The price may be on the higher side but the Packaging and the overall performance is worthy!!!
