Let’s jump to the review now, all the shades under this collection are inspired by their ambassadors. Pure Garnet is Sonam Kapoor’s shade and must I say that I am hooked to this shade the moment i saw her wearing it.

Packaging: The Lipstick comes in a black case and color coded button is given on the outer packaging itself which helps in identifying the color of the lipstick. It also has signature of Sonam Kapoor engraved on the Cap.

Color: Pure Garnet is a dark wine shade. Although the bullet looks brown but on swatching it gives the beautiful dark wine shade. This is really ideal for the dusky beauties, you can wear this color without thinking twice. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Texture: Texture is drying in nature, you need to exfoliate and moisturise your lips beforehand. After few hours of wear time, it dries the lips completely and it feels uncomfortable on lips.

Application: I found the application smooth, however i have heard people complaining about not so smooth application due to its bullet shape or how steeply its bullet is carved. But in my case it helped me to draw the outer lines and then fill in the lips effectively. The one thing i suggest is not to layer up this color as it looks cakey. One or two swipe is enough.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is superb, one swipe gives the enough color coverage for the pigmented lips.

Longevity: Being this a matte lip shade, it tends to last for the longer period. I had it on me for 5-6 hours and the color stay as it is. You may need touchup after heavy meals as it fades from the corner of the lips.

Staining: No, it does not stain the lips at all.


  1. Easy to identify Packaging.
  2. Unique Color.
  3. Smooth application.
  4. Highly Pigmented shade.
  5. Perfect color for fall season.
  6. Long staying power.
  7. No staining on lips.


  1. Drying texture.

My Verdict: The color is really unique, it is not something which you can easily find in other brands at this price. The texture is drying and makes the lips uncomfortable after few hours of wear time, otherwise it is a very good product to use.

Rating: 4/5

  1. Looking lovely.. Loved the use of green eyes with burgundy lips. Can you enlighten me on the colour and brand of the eye pencil you used on lower lash line? Thanks.
