The Colour: A deeep earthy brown pink with warm undertones. It looks quite dark in the tube than what it actually is. The name is quite misleading since there is nothing naked about it! By its name, I expected it to be a soft sheer pink but it is exactly the opposite. Even though the colour is a bit darker and warmer than what normal pinks are, it serves as ‘my lips but darker‘ on me since I’ve pigmented reddish pink lips naturally. It would look flattering on those with medium to dusky complexions.
Even though it is matte, it glides on smoothly and does not dry my lips. And it has a good lasting power. Even with your meals, it can last a good 4-5 hours, which is absolutely great. And it leaves behind a tint too. They are available in 45 shades(yes!) and all of them have this silver glass packaging with the colour at the bottom to differentiate the lipsticks.
Okay it smells like caramel or may be coconut. Or is it vanilla? I don’t know but it IS strong. Why? Because I generally can’t detect any smell in my cosmetics but I can feel the vanilla like smell when it is on my lips. And I don’t really dig it either.
Here I was trying some pout for the first time!
The colour is a bit darker than what shows on the lips.
These are some great quality lipsticks and at this price, you better not miss them. There are a total of 45 shades but they are mostly either pinks or mauves. There are some browns too. I wish they had more of corals and nudes. From what I’ve heard, their ‘Hot Hot Hot’ is one of the best red lipsticks around. For pinks, ‘Irish Rose’ is a nice option too.
I’ve a few more shades from this range, so look out for them
So is it for you? Yes if you are looking for a matte which does not dry your lips, feels smooth and glides on easily. These are some great quality lipsticks India has and I’m now feeling patriotic!
