I am a sucker for Matte Lipsticks. While window shopping one day i came across this beautiful matte lipstick by Chambor. I tried out two shades one was Aztec Brick and other was Earthy Red on which i finally settled, mainly because of the gorgeous color. The range has beautiful Red shade as well, named Fiery Red but since i am hooked with MAC Ruby woo so i thought to try out some other color. Lets jump to the review now.
MRP: Rs. 795
Color: Earthy red is a beautiful dark brown shade with the hint of red. You can say it is an amalgamation of dark brown and red color.
Packaging: Chubby Crayon packaging with transparent plastic cap. I so wish them to be twist up crayons instead of sharpening one. I also have one minor gripe, the transparent plastic cap seems to be very delicate and may crack with slight mishandling.
Ingredients: Ingredients are listed below:
Texture: Although it is a matte lipstick but it has very soft, creamy and buttery texture. It glides on lips very smoothly, there is no pulling and tugging. I absolutely loved the texture, i wish all the matte lipsticks have this kind of texture. Chambor has earned brownie points from my side for the texture itself and i will surely be keeping an eye on their new launches. There is one negative aspect as well, being the matte lipsticks they can highlight the fine lines and flakes on lips. It is always advisable to scrub and moisturize your lips before applying any matte lipstick. It doesn’t dry the lips unlike many matte lipsticks.
Application: Being the creamy texture, the applications is very easy. However as i said earlier the matte lipsticks tend to highlight the dryness or flakes on lips, so in such cases the application will not be smooth and forgiving.
Opacity: It is very opaque, one swipe provides the full color coverage.
Longevity: It stayed on me for 5-6 hours with slight fading in the middle and corner of lips, meals and drinks are included in this wear time.
Staining: Yes, Earthy Red does stain the lips. You need a good makeup remover to remove the stains completely.
- Smooth and buttery texture.
