By Contributor: Vaidehee
Hey you guys! Keeping in touch with my long term love affair with reds, i will review and swatch this red lipstick from Street Wear labelled Riveting Rouge. Now when it comes to streetwear, i don’t like some of the products they have to offer, but their new ultra moist color rich lipsticks i really do like, especially the array of shades they’ve made available and the rich pigmentation. So how did this red shade fare for me? Read on.
Street Wear Claims: Color Rich Ultra Moist lipsticks which are a part of the newly launched range will instantly revamp your drab look. Easy to apply and long lasting, this lipstick is worth including in your make-up kit.
Good moisturizer, even if you have dry chapped lips, it is not going to look flaky without a lip balm under it.
Does not settle into fine lines. It gives just the right amount of shine to the lips, so you don’t need to put on a gloss.
Free from Lead
Shades Available: Fire Your Ex, Very Vampire, Riveting Rouge, Foxy Fantasy, Puzzle Me Pink, Mystic Mauve, Berrylicious, Ruby Riddle
My Review of Street Wear Riveting Rouge:
Price : Rs.180. Which again, is very affordable. I recommend this range to anyone that’s looking for shocker-shades to try out because it’s easy on the wallet.
Packaging : The packaging for the street wear ultramoist lipsticks is unimpressive to say the least . The graphics are cute, but there are minor errors that should have been taken care of. For example, the tube of lipstick doesn’t twist all the way down, which means that it chips on the cap and you need to be careful about it.
Fragrance : They are almost fragrance free, however , they have a mildly synthetic scent.
Consistency and Texture : They’re marketed as moist mattes, and i couldn’t agree more. They’re matte, but not drying . This is possibly my favorite consistency and finish with lipsticks. The closest comparison i can draw to it is the essence adorable matte lipstick i’ve already reviewed. (heads up, i love it!)
Pigmentation : The shade riveting rouge is a lovely bright red with just a bit of yellow and warmth to it. Not doing much for your smile (reds with blue undertones do tend to make your pearly whites look even brighter) , but it doesn’t clash with our reletively deeper skin. The colour is very opaque and with two swipes it will take care of any discolouration or hyperpigmentation, so a huge plus there.
Longevity : The longevity on this ultra moist lip color range is average , the usual 3-4 hours. although some of them last longer than others. Their texture and consistency does tend to make them bleed slightly , especially the bolder colours, so neat application and a lip liner are the key, like with any bold deep shade. Also, given the finish these street wear lipsticks do tend to transfer. It is recommended that you could maybe blot it with a single ply tissue or set it with translucent powder. There is very little settling into fine lines , but if you have arid dry and chapped lips, you might want to prep before hand.
What i do love about Street Wear Color Rich Ultramoist Lipstick Riveting Rouge:
- The shade Riveting Rouge although bold, doesn’t clash with yellow undertones, and for a lot of the shades i’ve tried from this range, that consistency, i’ve noticed. bar a few expections , like the shade pink passion which i’ve already reviewed.
- The pigmentation through out the range is really great. Drugstore lipsticks have really started upping their game from what i can tell .
- The texture is actually pretty good. It may not be for everyone, but this is a good formulation to incorportate the non-drying aspect into your basic matte.
What i don’t love about Street Wear Color Rich Ultramoist Lipstick Riveting Rouge:
- The longevity could have been slightly better. But with most drugstore lipsticks that i’ve tried , this wear-time is a given .

Verdict ? For a vibrant shade that you’re experimenting with to see if you’d like it , you might want to check the Street wear Ultramoist lipsticks. I have said it before and i’ll say it again, They have managed to deliver the best possible product at the price that they’re set. But for everyday wear shades, i will stand by my revlon, lakme absolute’ or L’oreal ones .
