Lotus Herbals Pure Colors Lipstick #691- Peach Creme (Review/Swatch)

Hello Everyone,

                 Today I would be reviewing one of my most favorite lipstick fro Lotus Herbals. I have been recently buying lot of Lotus Herbals products and am slowly turning into a fan of them mainly for the reason that they provide good quality products at a reasonable price. This lipstick is my second purchase after the Perky Peach shade which was a complete disaster and is lying idle in my makeup stash only because the colors on the internet shopping sites are not true indicators. I have been desperately wanting to buy a peach colored lipstick, peaches and corals being my latest fetish, and finally I got my hands on this particular shade which always seemed to be out of stock.

What does the website say about the product:

‘Pure Colors’ is a range of 12 exciting moisturizing lip colors in pinks and browns. There are 6 shades of each type. They have natural extracts of Jojoba and Aloe Vera. The unique product qualities are: - Uniform dispersion of pigments - Rich payoff - Smooth application

Directions for use 
Fill lips with color, working from the corner of the mouth towards the middle. Use a lip liner that is closet in shade to the lipstick color.

Active ingredients
JOJOBA – Jojoba helps promote healing of the skin. – Its antimicrobial properties in addition to the chemical composition that closely resembles skin’s natural sebum, makes it easy to absorb and non-allergic even in the most sensitive individuals.

Price: INR 245 for 4.2 g



My Take on the Lipstick:

Well, it is a very smooth and creamy lipstick and I absolutely adore the color. My first peach lipstick you see!The shade Peach Creme is a Peach colored lipstick with brown undertones , and looks a bit orange-ish on my lips which I love. It is a very creamy lipstick with no shimmer and gives a very moisturized look to the lips. The pigmentation is great and the pricing is awesome. The packaging is quite sturdy and I've never had any problem with it even when I dropped it a couple of times on the floor.

Swatches : 

Left-One swipe, Right- three-four swipes

  Medium pigmentation, I need a good 3-4 swipes to get full color on lips
  Quantity is great for that price
   Does not bleed, I can do without a lipliner too
  Smooth and creamy, gives a supple moisturized look to lips
  12 shades to choose from - 6 from Pinks and 6 From Browns
  Decent lasting power, they stay for two to three hours but don't survive meals on me :(


  Availability can be an issue
  I don't like its smell , it is like that of dried leaves.
  Has to be reapllied after meals, not that I really mind it, but to some women that can be an issue
No indication of color on the casing, so if you have too many of these, finding a particular shade can be a hassle 


And this is how it looks on me:




Would I repurchase:
Maybe , but I am also quite hypnotized by a similar shade in Bourjois Sweet Kiss Natural and Revlon Colorburst Range :D
