Rust Rage, First Love

Availability :

These are available at few local stores and Amazon (with additional delivery charges)


Packaging & Texture:

The lipsticks are quite light weight and has a plastic packaging. There is a change from the previous packaging with a cuter girl's face on the cover and a flat top :). These are easy to carry around as they do not open on their own however if dropped a few times, the plastic might break. The shade names are written at the bottom with no other option to identify them.

The lipsticks do not have a matte texture at all. I would rather categorise them as satin matte finish. These glides on smoothly on the lips and has a sweet chocolatey fragrance. The fragrance vanishes after some time, leaving behind vibrant and beautiful colors. The lipstick does not bleed out at all and also keeps your lips hydrated.

Swatches:



My Experience:

Rust Rage - This is a beautiful rusty shade with a bit of orange and maroon tints. The shade will surely suit all skin tones and is quite pigmented. It glides on evenly with two swipes and stays for around 4 to 5 hours. Post that you need to reapply it at least at the centre of your lips. Since this is a darker shade, it leaves some tint on the lips while it fades which does not look bad at all.

How It Looks On Me:




First Love - The perfect bright neon pink with purple undertones! This shade would look amazing on the fairer skin tone and washes out a bit on the dark skin tones. I love to wear this on days when I want to look all brightened up! The shade is decently pigmented and requires maximum 2-3 swipes for the full color to show up. It glides on the lips with a satin finish and later settles with a velvety matte finish.
