PRODUCT CLAIMS:Soft, creamy lipstick enriched with Vitamins A, C and E. Leaves the lips dazzlingly shiny and perfectly moisturized. With UVA and UVB filters. Hypoallergenic.*
*Formulated to minimise the risk of allergies.
PACKAGING: The packaging is very different from Deborah milano signature packaging that are more sophisticated and stylish.It has a plastic red colored body with IL ROSSETTO written on it and the shade number and shade indicator is provided at the bottom.It definitely feels a little cheaper as compared to other lipstick cases designed by Deborah.I think that it the reason they have kept low price of this particular range.
SHADE: The shade number 800 is a deep berry plum shade that is more suited for the fall.The shade is slightly hard to carry on everyday basis but it is indeed a great shade.There is no sheen or shimmer in the formula.
TEXTURE,FINISH & STAYING POWER:The texture of the lipstick is amazingly soft and smooth.It glides on easily on lips and hydrates a bit(not too much).The finish is creamy on application after which it settles to a satin matte finish. One swipes imparts almost full coverage to lips but a touch of second layer is needed to even out the shade on lips as it is quite noticeable.
Staying power is around 5 hours which is slightly low but it doesn’t settle in the lip lines or accentuate dry skin.It doesn’t accentuate dry lips but proper exfoliation is needed.The formula is hydrating but not moisturizing.It feels comfortable on lips though.
RECOMMENDATION: Deborah Milano makes some of the great textures and formula when it comes to lipsticks,I have always been a big fan of this brand.Shade 807 is a beautiful shade but more suited for the fall weather.Also,the formula is amazing and it doesn’t feel streaky or blotchy on lips.I highly recommend checking out this range.
