Lotus Herbals Purestay Lipstick Apricot Bliss-Review, Swatch and LOTD

26 May

Hi everyone,

I know I had almost vanished from my blog for quite some time, but I am here now with another review. Today, I’m reviewing a beautiful lipstick from Lotus Purestay range- Apricot Bliss.

What lotus says about the Purestay Lipsticks:

Purestay Lip colour is preservative free, natural, long lasting, hydrating lip colour. One swipe and your lips are ready for a healthier shine all day long without any loss of moisture ensuring a flawless finish. SPF 20 gives UV protection.

Price: Rs. 495/- for 4.2 gms of product.

This is the first time that I have used a Lotus cosmetic product. It comes in a pink satin pouch encased in a cardboard tube. The color looks like a beautiful pink to me. When applied it gives a shiny appearance but settles to a matt finish.

It is a full coverage lipstick and the color would suit Indian skin tones well. It lasted for about 2-3 hrs. on me. It is touted as a long-lasting lipstick and hence is a bit drying on my lips.

The thing I liked most about the product is its color…one of the very few pinks that I have really liked 🙂

Lotus Herbals Colour Dew Nail Enamel-Rose Petal Review and NOTD

23 Nov

Aloha!

I bring you another Nail Enamel review from a brand I had never tried before-Lotus Herbals.

Lotus Herbals Colour Dew Nail Enamel in Rose Petal is a gorgeous dark pink shade that looks great on Indian skin tones. It is Toluene and DBP free and there are loads of colours to choose from.

Though two coats are sufficient for an opaque finish, but I went ahead and applied the third one too and was delighted to see the nail polish didn’t chip for at least four days!

And to top it, it didn’t leave behind any yellow stains on my nails when I removed it.

Price: Rs. 110/- for 8ml (wow!)

Here’s the Report Card:

Yays:

  • Beautiful Color
  • Dries really fast
  • Doesn’t chip for 4 days atleast
  • At Rs. 110/- it is a grrreeat nail polish!
  • Toluene and DBP free
  • Doesn’t stain the nail

Nays:

Has a long brush, so needs a little practice to work with it; the brush tends to pick up a lot of  product so make sure to scrape it before applying.

Score: 5/5  (:D)

Hope you enjoyed the review; don’t forget to drop in with your comments.
