Bourjois Sweet Kiss Naturel Lipstick #07 - Framboise Exquise

Hello Everyone,
I wanted to write for a long time about this particular lipstick but a few things were just keeping me too busy. So today I’m finally going to write about this particular lipstick which I bought just because I wanted to buy one from this range…

What does Bourjois Say about these lipsticks:
Sweet Kiss Naturel lipstick
100% natural formula
100% radiant shades
All the benefits of Nature in one lipstick!
Its formula of 100% natural origin brings radiance and care to lips.
Enriched with magnolia oil and shea butter, its melting formula intensely nourishes lips, leaving them supple and providing them with 8 hours of moisture.
The intense and radiant shades illuminate your lips thanks to the 100% natural pigments selected for their purity and benefits: antioxidant green tea and soothing rose.
8 shades ranging from the most natural to the most sophisticated and from softer to more sensuous hues, for naturally beautiful lips!

Price: INR 660 for 3 g

My take on the Sweet Kiss natural Lipstick in Rose Seduisant:
 The reason I wanted to buy a lipstick from this range was because I so loved the light pink packaging. It has a cute slider button on the side and a shade indicator on top which makes it easy to locate in stash. Yes, it may sound a bit weird but I had a hard time selecting a shade because I didn’t fall in love with any, which is very unlike me and but I just had to buy one of these so went ahead with the shade I’m going to review today.
The Sweet Kiss Naturel lipsticks are in general very sheer, unlike the original sweet kiss range and to me, they feel more like tinted lip balms than a lipstick. It takes me more than 4 of 5 swipes to completely build up the color so I can surely say these are not for pigmented lips. The lipsticks are really lightweight and moisturizing which are a big plus points about them. But then, they have very low staying power; say about 2/3 hrs without meals. It fails miserably to the 8 hr claim by the company.
Also, there are limited shades to choose from which is another limiting factor.
The shade that I got is Framboise Exquise (exquisite raspberry) is definitely a pink shade but I could not help but locate a hint of coral and brown undertones in it. In the swatch it comes out as a pretty pink-brown shade but on my lips it comes out as a coral pink color which is another drawback for me because although I really like corals but am afraid of wearing them during the day. In my opinion, this lipstick would look best when paired with a neutral smokey eye makeup and a cool toned blush.

The good and the great:
*      Great Packaging, I bought mine only for that
*      Very light and moisturizing
*      Even wear off, no patchy marks and leaves a very light tint.
*      Nice packaging, with that cute slider button by the side
*      Easy to locate in a stash because of the color indicator at the cap.
The not-so-great:
*      Poor staying power
*      Some people may not like the fragrance, it is very mineral-oil-ish kinds
*      The price may seem steep to few, particularly for that quality
*      Shade choices are limited, about 8
*      There is no Ingredients list, only the SA told me there were no animal ingredients.

Would I repurchase: I really don’t think so, I don’t like the sheer nature of it and the funny smell. 

Here's me wearing it :


Hope you all enjoyed reading the post..
Many Hugs!!!
