Review And Swatches- ORANGE CANDY

The lipsticks shades are all very bright and attractive, so it was very hard to choose a shade. I wanted to try the texture of the lipstick before buying them all, therefore I ended up buying Orange Candy.

Packaging:-

The packaging is very bright, funky and attractive. The lipstick crayon comes in a plastic tube with a rotating retractor. PSX_20170626_131638.jpgPSX_20170626_131608.jpg

Colour:-

As the name suggests Orange Candy is a bright ORANGE shade. PSX_20170626_131537.jpg

Texture:-

The lipstick is named Lakme Absolute Lip Pouts Matte Masaba Lips but this is absolutely MISLEADING. The lipsticks are NOT matte, its more of a creme lipstick. It is also not waterproof or smudge-proof.PSX_20170626_131513.jpg

My Opinion:-

I wasn’t paid to write this review and its a totally honest opinion. It is very disappointing to see big brands collaborating with famous designers creating these highly advertised collections which are just lies and false claims. If I am paying 750 Rs for a matte lipstick, I expect to get a matte lipstick. This is a creme lipstick not a matte one. Also it doesn’t last that long and gets smudged easily.

Pros:-

  • Nice Pacakging
  • Easily available
  • Available in vibrant 10 shades
  • Available in a easy rotating retractable tube

Cons:-

  • Not matte
  • Not waterproof
  • Not smudge-proof
  • Not long lasting
  • expensive
  • smells weird
  • Falsely advertised

To conclude I would like to say I am very much disappointed in the promotion campaign of the product and the product itself. It is not right for big brands to falsely advertise their products.
