Lotus Herbals Floral Stay Lipstick-411 Rose Mary

Hello Beauties,

Here's a post on the lipstick that I'm currently using more often, it's the Lotus Herbals Floral Stay Lipstick-411 Rose mary.

According to Lotus Herbals: Lotus Herbals Floral Stay is a range of 10 exciting long lasting lip colours in maroons, pinks and browns, enriched with botanical extracts of Aloe Vera and
Unique features : Lip color that lasts for hours with zero touch-ups. The SFP-10 formula provides complete protection from UV rays, preventing darkening of lips. 100% vegetarian: no animal ingredients.

Botanical Infusion for the health of your lips.
Day Long Wear.
Kiss Proof.
Sun protection.

Directions For Use: Fill lips with color, working from the corner of the mouth towards the middle. Use a lip liner that is closest in shade to the lipstick color.

Price:  Rs.345 for 3.4g

My thoughts:  "Rose Mary" is like light Wine/Maroon shade with brown undertones, it's a matte lipstick. This comes in a classy case, the bullet is thin & delicate.Every time I apply this I have a feeling that it might break so I apply it very carefully with a light hand.

Color & Pigmentation: This color would be suitable for cool & neutral undertones. The pigmentation is medium to buildable, I need to swipe it 2-3 times to get a nice color on the lips.

Texture & Moisturization: It doesn't provide any moisturization since it's a completely matte lipstick, non shimmery & frost free. Had they claimed about the moisturization, I would have been upset because this shade is definitely not moisturising.

Fragrance: The fragrance is very mild & floral & fades away soon.

Staying Power: This stays on me for 3-4 hours without food or drinks. Sadly this fades unevenly after a full meal, however I still like the tint it leaves behind & thankfully this shade doesn't make the fine lines prominent.

Claims: It isn't kiss proof, transferable to glasses too & doesn't provide long wear. Complete list of ingredients missing.

Adore or Abhor it?  Though this has 3-4 hours stay on me, I still like this lipstick because it suits my cool to neutral undertones & brightens my face.  You can apply it little light for day wear & for night time you can swipe it 2-3 times to get a deep pigmented color.Pair this with neutrals to make your lips the star attraction!
