Step 3: Work from the centre towards the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth.
Step 4: Glide across the entire bottom lip.
Step 5: To apply it on your cheeks, gently rub it onto the apples.
The lipsticks are packed in simple cute pink color The base of the lipstick is same for all shades so its not easy to identify the shade in your vanity box.The shade name is mentioned at the bottom.The application wand is very nicely designed in drop shape and flexible for precision and flexible shaping of lips.All the details are imprinted in white color on the body and seals with a silver sturdy cap .This is very easy to carry and travel friendly.
Pigmentation and Texture:
Well they have awesome creamy pigmentation very much similar to nyx cream and Miss Claire’s soft cream lipsticks , with matte finish on lips.These lip colors don’t drag or pull lips its just smooth on them.
Lips do not feel heavy at all, you wont feel that there is something applied on lips.They are moisturizing and not at all drying hence do not need any lip balm application underneath .These lipsticks do not settle in fine lines of lips and give extra smooth finish.
This shade would look good with minimal makeup and good smokey eyes.
The texture is super creamy after few seconds of application settles down to matte.
Staying power :
The lighter shades stays on for about 3-4 hours and the darker colors stay on for 5-6 hours. These do not transfer on cups or bottles and survives light snacks and tea. However, won’t survive full meal and would fade from the center and need to apply again.They do not crumble like matte liquid lipsticks. It can be easily removed using make-up remover or my all time favorite coconut oil.:)
So, As I was in hunt of nude shades for this summer I picked few shades out of which 2 are already reviewed and the link is mentioned below.
So talking about Lakme Rose Touch this is not exactly nude it falls more on mauve side .Its a nice wearable color and can be worn anytime of day .Its very soft color with hints of pink and purple .Though the staying power is not much but still I like this color.It doesn’t bleeds or makes lips flaky
This shade has good coverage on lips and one swatch is enough for lips.Even pigmented lips would be covered very effectively.The texture is soo amazing like a feature on lips .They settle down to pure Matte once dry and do not make lips feel dry and flaky .
Coming to the blush part.These lipcolors are soo amazing when used as a blush.Very little amount is required to just dab on apples of cheek and spread well.They turn out so amazing.
This series has some amazing dark shades as well which I would be trying and reviewing very soon .
Overall I liked this shade and definitely recommend it to people looking out for nude/light pink lipshades.
I would definitely try other shades as well from this series and review them soon.
