PROs: 1. Staying Power: It stays for 5-6 hours. (The colour fades off gradually leaving a tint.) 2. Formula, Texture, Pigmentation: It is very pigmented and only 1-2 swipes is enough for an even full coverage effect. It is lightweight and doesn't feel heavy on the lips. It is very comfortable to wear. It has a soft floral fragrance like most of the Lakme lipsticks. 3. Packaging: Comes in metallic plastic tube. It is simple and elegant. 4. Finish: It has a matte finish. Gives an even and creamy look. 5. Shades: There are 12 shades in this range and there are enough to suit all Indian skintones. 6.Pricing: It is reasonably priced at Rs. 800 for 3.4 gms.
CONs: 1. Not completely transfer-proof. Touch-up would be needed after a heavy meal.
TIP: 1. Always prep your lips before application by scrubbing them and applying lip balm to moisturise them.
The shade I would really recommend in this range is 'ORCHID PINK' (No.205). It is a bright pink and looks gorgeous! I have received many compliments for it :)
However, if you want a matte lipstick which is extremely long-lasting (more than 10 hours), Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick is really good and costs around the same price.
