Hello Beauties,
If you remember in the last week of September, Lotus Herbals introduced 6 trendy new shades of MoistPetals Moisturising Lipcolor as part of their Festive Glam Collection. Click here for the list of the new shades.
Today I would be reviewing the 112 Red Rover shade.

What does the Lotus Herbals claim about these lipsticks: These are 100% vegetarian and ultra moisturizing range of lip colors. Now choose from a range of dazzling colors and get that perfect pout!

Lotus Herbals MOISTPETALS™ lip colours contain botanical extracts of Symphytum Officinale & Plantago Oyata Seeds. These natural ingredients nourish and protect your lips by providing optimum moisture all day long.

With a mild, satin texture, MOISTPETALS™ lip colors come in six new stunning shades of red, peach, pink, purple and browns.

Directions for use
Fill lips with color, working from the corner of the mouth towards the middle. Use a lip liner that is closet in shad to the lipstick color.

Price: Rs.349 INR for 4.2g

My Experience: 
From what I have heard & read  a Red Lipcolor is classic & never goes out of style.

While red lipstick might sound daring for daytime, it can still look professional if the rest of your makeup is subtle. "With a neutral eye, matte skin and a touch of blush, red lipstick can look phenomenal for day," says makeup artist Napoleon Perdis. Napoleon Perdis is an Australian Make up Artist &the same guy who appears on the Reality TV show  "Australia's Next Top Model that's aired on Big CBS love channel in India.

The lipstick comes in a classy red color packaging with the shade name & number at the bottom, the red color packaging kind of makes it very apt for festive season. This color is one of those bright red colors usually picked up by brides, however during the festive time any girl can apply this wearing a traditional outfit. It kind of makes my face look brighter every time I apply this color( I have cool to neutral undertones). However I'm sure it would suit even warmer tones with just a single swipe. I'm glad this is an opaque lipstick because I'm not very fond of sheer lipsticks. I just apply Kohl along with this lipcolor & it makes me looks gorgeous. If I just have snacks this lipstick stays good for 2-3 hours on my lips after which it fades & leaves a nice tint behind, however if you have a full meal, it doesn't stay too long.

Pros of the Lotus Herbals  Moist Petals Lipsticks:
1. Creamy & very moisturising, doesn't dry out the lips.
2. Superbly pigmented & opaque.
3. Good staying power of 2-3 hours minimum, will survive if you just have snacks.
4. Nice color to get daring luscious red color on the lips.
5. Contains Botanical Extracts. 
6. Doesn't have an over-whelming fragrance to bother you.
7. Affordable.
8. Available in different shades, Red, Purple, Pink, Browns.

Cons of the Lotus Herbals  Moist Petals Lipsticks:
1. The shade name in printed on a paper & after a while the paper comes out so if in case you have 2-3 shades of the Moist Petals Lipsticks, you would have to open each lipstick to find the shade you are looking for.
2. I so wish it could survive full meals, but it's always fun to reapply them, you get a chance to do touch up.
3. Since this is opaque, you need to see to it that you exfoliate your lips well because opaque lipsticks feather into cracks & make the fine lines more visible.

Adore it or Abhor it? Definitely adore these because they are super moisturing & hydrating & makes my face brighter every time I apply it.  

Product sent by the brand for consideration.
