Hello pretty ladies,
Lotus Herbals recently came up with new shades in the “Ecostay long lasting” lipstick range. When I was chilling at a mall, these lip colours and the new chubby crayons at the counter grabbed my attention. And how could I not pick these as the shades were extremely beautiful and great for regular use. I picked 3 shades and have already reviewed Plum Kiss. Here’s “Rose Rush” for you guys!
Price: Rs 575
Lotus Herbals ecostay long lasting lip colour is a preservative free, natural, long lasting and hydrating lip colour. One swipe and your lips are ready for a healthier shine all day long without any loss of moisture, ensuring a flawless finish. SPF 20 gives UV Protection.
My Experience with Lotus Herbals Ecostay Long Lasting Lip Colour – Rose Rush:
Packaging: The Lotus Herbals ecostay lipstick comes in a very pretty metallic pink box with the lipstick inside it. The lipstick further comes in a little cloth pouch which is shiny pink too. The packaging of the lipstick is really pretty and feminine. It comes in a glossy pink packaging which looks very classy and luxurious. Although, it is not colour-coded, it has the name mentioned at the base. The cap closes with a click so no such flaws with the packaging. These lipsticks are very handy and fit anywhere be it the vanity or a clutch.
Shade: The shade “Rose rush” is a supersexy cranberry red shade which looks very classy and stunning. It is not a true red but I love such types of red that are deep and create a mysterious look. It is a red with a lot of maroon hints. So it can be an equal blend of red and maroon.
It creates an instant pop on my lips so even when I don’t have any more makeup on my face, I am good to go out with just this on my lips. It is one of those shades that draw away attention from my imperfections. It brightens up my skintone instantly. It is an awesome shade for evening parties, weddings and great for brides too. In fact, the entire range has some of the best shades that a bride can try.
Consistency, pigmentation and finish: The consistency of the lipstick is not very creamy; hence, a lot of pressure has to be applied while using it for the first time. After a few uses, it does turn a bit creamy but not very smooth. Hence a lot of tugging is required. And due to this I cannot line out my lip lines perfectly which results into a shabby application. But I somehow manage to layer it on correctly. The pigmentation is really great as I just get the bold colour in just one swipe. But I layer it once more to increase the intensity. The pigmentation is great to cover pigmented lips too. The finish is super matte which makes the shade look even better. But I need to exfoliate my lips before I use this since it might look a bit patchy.
Staying power: The staying power of this lipstick is really good. It nicely stays on my lips for 5-6 hours without any food. It does transfer but not very much. It does not settle in fine lines or bleed even after food. When I munch on something, some colour gets ripped off from the middle portion of my lips. Hence, a touchup after 5 hours would be a great option.
