Lotus Herbals Pure Color Lipstick - Rose Wood - Review

Soft lips with a natural rose brown color - exactly what I needed. I am too shy to don a bright red or coral on my lips. Even darker shades make me feel a bit uncomfortable unless its a wedding that I need to attend. So I keep hunting for soft natural looking colors, something to give my face a gentle lift without making me too concious of what I have on my lips. I found one such shade in the Lotus Herbals Pure Color lipsticks range - Rose Wood (641)

What the company claims
"PURE COLOR™ is a 100% vegetarian range of moisturizing lip colours available in 22 rich, sophisticated shades including peaches, pinks and nutty browns. Enriched with the botanical extracts of Aloe Vera and Jojoba."

Lotus Herbals Pure Color Lipsticks come in a shimmery beige packing with Lotus Herbals logo in gold. The lipsticks are smooth and creamy in texture and have a decent staying power.

My Experience
Shade: I love this shade, its a soft brown shade with a very slight pink undertone, absolutely natural looking. On very fair skin this will appear more brown but on my wheatish skin it gives a very natural look.

Texture: I really like the smooth creamy texture of the lipstick. It does not settle into the fine lines of the lips and gives a nice smooth appearance. After an hour it does become less smooth and in winters when I'm drinking less water I feel the need to smother my lips with a little balm on top of this lipstick.

Fragrance: There is no fragrance which is great for a lot of people (I don't mind having fruity flavored lip products)

Staying power: The staying power is decent, 2-3 hours without food and it will withstand a cup of coffee. After a full meal though there is no trace of this lipstick left on my lips.

Price: Priced at Rs 245 this is a great lip product for its rich creamy texture and decent staying power.

Overall I would surely recommend this lipstick and I would myself like to try out other shades from this range. I need to look for a daily wear natural plum shade - any suggestions?
