MY REVIEW

The credit goes to Komal of Delhifashionblogger for introducing this brand to me, I have seen her wearing a red shade from this brand in 2-3 of her videos and I was obsessed with it. This brand is not very known in India, however it is easily available online. I got it from a nearby store called Venus.

If i go by the official website, there are 40 colors in this range. I have mentioned the Link of website above in case you want to check the entire range.

Diana of London 2000 Kisses Sunset Red is Maroon based red color liquid lipstick which is perfect for Dark to Medium to Fair Indian Skin tone. It is the kind of red which would make you happy, glowy and gonna get you lots of compliments 🙂

The texture of the Lipstick is smooth and thick, which is a huge PLUS as it makes the application very easy and precise. The sponge applicator deserves a special mention for being very user friendly and easy to use. The liquid lipstick sets into Matte finish within a couple of minutes leaving a very beautiful matte finish… Kudos to the brand for coming up with such an amazing matte finish.

Few of the bloggers complained about the lipstick setting into the lip lines however I have not experienced such an issue. It does make the lips dry after 4-5 hours but does not feel uncomfortable on lips.

Sunset Red is very longgggg lasting, the longest I wore it was i guess for 8 hours and it stayed put the whole time. It survive meals, drinks etc. I usually wear it on days when i know that I won’t be having any time for touch-ups. The brand has recommended using a lip liner underneath this lipstick, however this shade is superbly pigmented and I usually do not use any lip liner with it.

It can be removed by a water or oil based makeup remover and it does not leave any stain behind.

I guess that is it, i have covered up all the important aspects 🙂

My Rating: 5/5. I Highly recommend this lipstick. If you are a matte lover, you have to have it. Believe me, its worth the praise 🙂

My Experience:

These are neither lip gloss nor lipsticks. These lip colors are one of a kind and you will feel them silky smooth on your lips. Its been an year since I am using Monte Carlo and I am truly deeply and madly in love with the color, texture, staying power and its feather like feel on lips. I was looking to buy other colors as well but they were never available in Sephora, they are the most FAST SELLING item in Sephora. Anyway I got Addis Ababa and Prague NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams from a local store here and been wearing them quiet a lot as these two shades are perfect for summers. Below are the Swatches of all three shades:

The pics will give you a clear picture of packaging, the sponge applicator is very user friendly and gives very even application on lips.  The texture is very smooth and glides easily on lips. The formula can be an issue for the girls having dry lips as it accentuates the fine lines/dry patches and makes the lips dry after 4-5 hours of wear time. These soft matte lip creams do not feel heavy on lips, a fact that is such a PLUS for me as I do not like Lipsticks or Lipgloss that feel heavy on lips. The most POSITIVE ASPECT is the Finish, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams have Satin Matte Finish which is best in all the Liquid Lipsticks I have tried so far. I am quickly Summing up all the pros and cons here.

Pros:

  1. Sleek Packaging which is easy to carry and colored tube helps in Easy Recognition of Color.
  2. Lightweight and Creamy Texture.
  3. Glides Smoothly on Lips.
  4. The applicator provides a precise finish and is very easy to use.
  5. Highly Pigmented, one swipe covers the lip perfectly.
  6. Long wearing, provides 6-7 hours of wear time.
  7. Survives the meals and snacks, you may need little touch up around the corner and middle of the lips.
    Gives a nice glow to the face.
  8. These colors will suit most of the Skin Tones.
  9. Touch-up and Re-application is easy as these does not get patchy.
  10. The Formula is not immensely dry.
  11. Does not Transfer on Cups/glasses.

Cons:
1. Not an ideal formula and texture for Severe dry lips. You need to exfoliate your lips and moisturize them before the application.
2. Accentuates the Lip Lines after few hours of Wear time.

My Verdict: 4.5/5. I am totally in Love with these Matte Lip Creams and Recommend all Makeup lovers to atleast try one shade from this range. I can guaranty that you will love them.  However, the Beauties with severe dry and chapped lips are advised to stay away from these Lip creams.
