Lotus Herbals Pure Color Lipstick Red Rose Review, Swatch & FOTD

Hi Guys,

Today I am reviewing a shade from the Lotus Herbals pure color lipstick range. The shade is 612 Red Rose. I had bought this shade few months back and then it was priced at 245 INR. Now they seem to have increased the price to 275 INR. Read onto know if this lipstick is a hit or a miss.

Product Description

Shades

Available in 22 shades

Price  275 INR for 4.2 g

Availability Nykaa  Flipkart

Ingredients List

Active Ingredients – Enriched with the botanical extracts of Aloe Vera and Jojoba.

What I think

Packaging

The Pure color lipstick range comes in a golden beige packaging with the lotus pattern running over the body. The packaging is acceptably robust but the cap is a little flimsy as it comes off easily. So it is not quite the “throw it in the bag and I am good to go” kind of lipstick. You need to be cautious when traveling with this one as it may end up damaging the lipstick bullet. The bottom of the tube mentions the shade name and number. It doesn’t have a color coded sticker making it difficult to locate shades.

Texture

The lipstick formula is creamy and soft. It glides on smoothly without any tugging. The formula feels light on the lips. It is quite moisturizing on the lips but I would have preferred a little more hydrating formula.

Fragrance

The lipstick has a strong floral scent (in the tube) but it disappears soon after application. To me the scent is quite appealing.

Shade

The shade Red Rose is a gorgeous muted coral red that settles into semi matte finish. The pigmentation is superb giving fine color in a single swipe. It’s a versatile shade that would suit Indian skin tones. For those of you looking for a subtle red with more of an earthy undertone this is the shade for you.

Worth factor

Staying power of the lipstick is about 4+ hrs. It survives light as well as heavy meals. It fades evenly – no patchiness at all. It does not feather or bleed but does transfer a bit which is a given since it’s creamy. It settles into a darker stain and surprisingly on the whole lasts for about 7 hours which is simply amazing.

To sum it up, this is an absolutely gorgeous shade that would look beautiful on all Indian skin tones. It has excellent pigmentation, formula and staying power for a lipstick priced at 275 bucks! – price is definitely justified.

    Nice FOTD Jinse! These lippies are a good deal for the price that we pay, I have 2 of it and I feel disappointed as it transfers, but why expect much out of a lippie that is too economic.

      Thanks Vishakha…definitely! overlook transfer issues when the formula is so creamy and the price doesn’t hurt
