MRP: Rs.800 for 2.7g
Texture: Creamy Matte

Description on Revlon’s website:
Vibrant colors infused with a Triple Butter Complex give you a bold, beautiful lip. It’s a burst of matte color with a balm-like feel. Go bold and get moisturized in 10 craveable, collectible shades.

Features:

  • Velvety color + balm-like moisture
  • Infused with a Triple Butter Complex of shea, mango, and coconut butter
  • Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required

Color: Sultry is a brown-pink color with hints of plum, the color looks too sober and mature on the bullet but on lips it looks very pretty pink. This color is ideal for everyday wear and will look great on medium to dark complexion.

Formula: It has matte formula but is not a drying matte. It glides smoothly on lips unlike other matte lipsticks but slightly accentuate the fine lines.

Fragrance: It has minty fragrance and i felt the cooling sensation on my lips while applying it, although it doesn’t stay for long.

Pigmentation: It is highly pigmented and covers the lips in one swipe only. You can further build the color if you wish to and it doesn’t look patchy. I applied two swipes in the pictures below.

My Experience: I love the formula, the application is really smooth and provides a perfect finish. Applying a lip balm underneath would be a wise decision as it is a matte lipstick after all and lips feel dry after few hours. It is a perfect color for office going ladies, not over the top and not too dull. But i wish the longevity be a little more, it does not survive meals and you need to do touch up afterwards which is quiet a turn off for me. On me it had a wear time of 4 hours (without meals). But nonetheless it is a great color with very good formula.

Pros:
Beautiful color
Great pigmentation
Creamy texture which glides smoothly on lips
Not too drying
Twist up crayon hence no product wastage

Cons:
Not so good wear time.
Slightly accentuate the lip lines
Dries the lips after few hours so it is advisable to apply a lip balm underneath.

Rating: I will give it 3.5/5

Love,

Chambor Extreme Matte Long Wear Lipcolor- Earthy Red review and swatch

Chambor Extreme Matte Long Wear Lipcolor- Earthy Red

Chambor lipstick

earthy red

Official Website:  http://www.chambor.com/lips-lipstick-new-06.asp

Description on their website: Extremely soft & creamy texture gives a velvety matte finish. Hydrating lightweight formula with rich pigments, does not dry out lips. Super long wear, waterproof.

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:  ingredients

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.

Pros:

  • Smooth and buttery texture.
  • Doesn’t dry the lips.
  • Easy and precise application.
  • Very pigmented, provides good color coverage.
  • Long wear time.
  • Minimum transfer.
  • Doesn’t feel heavy on lips.

My Verdict: I loved the color and texture of the lipstick. I will be soon trying out the other shades from this range.
