How to Apply:
For precise application of the liquid lipstick, apply it to your bottom lip first and then tend to your upper lip. Since the formula is very pigmented, apply the colour to the bottom lip first, pressing your lips together and then filling in your Cupid’s bow.

Texture, Formula & Pigmentation:
The Texture of the lipstick is a creamy-matte texture, which is neither liquidy nor thick in consistency. The Formula is comfortable enough to apply the lipstick smoothly on to the lips without getting uneven or patchy. The wand of the applicator is small and coats the lips perfectly in one go and really helps in drawing a perfect V on the cupid’s bow 🙂
The formula is a liquid matte formula which settles into a complete matte finish.
The Pigmentation is superb and is 100 % opaque in just a single swipe. It is so utterly pigmented that it leaves a strong stain behind even with a single touch of it So you really have to be careful when you apply the lipstick on the lips and better make no mistakes 😀
As they are complete matte, they are quite drying on the lips, so exfoliating and moisturizing your lips is a must do before you reach out to the lipstick.

The wear time of the lipstick is even amazing and stays put all day including meals and drinks with in. They are completely transfer proof, doesn’t budge a 1% even if you try to make them do 😀
The color faded out just a bit in the center of the lips in the later half specially after meals, but doesn’t concern me much as it is most natural to happen.

Review:
I was bowled over the swatches and that’s what actually tempted me to grab this gorgeous deep Burgundy shade for me. It is a deep burgundy shade with red undertones. Once applied, it instantly brightens up the face and lifts up the whole makeup look.
And I think it is one of the most beautiful and flattering shade of Red I own in my lipstick collection now 🙂 It is really flattering on my medium to fair skin tone and I am sure it will look equally good on all the Indian complexions.

The texture is soft, creamy matte and quite light on the lips. The lipstick settles in to a perfect matte finish with 100% opaque coverage in just a single swipe. Once the lipstick settles down, its completely matte, water proof, transfer proof and really long lasting. However it does fades away from the center part of the lips after having meals in between.
As it is complete matte, it settles into the fine lines of the lips and highlights every single line on the lips. So if you have dry- chappy lips, I don’t recommend to go with the lipstick at all. And even with others, a lip balm is a must underneath the lipstick.
And if you own the lipstick, you also should definitely own a good makeup remover, coz it ain’t leaving you without some efforts with removing 😀
You would certainly need a good makeup remover or cleansing oil to clean off the lipstick completely from the lips.

So overall, Its a gorgeous deep red shade liquid matte lipstick which has a creamy matte formula, settles into a complete matte finish, highly pigmented,  smudge proof, transfer proof and long lasting! and also very affordable.

However quite drying on the lips, settles into fine lines, difficult to remove and contains Parabens. 

Yes, I would definitely recommend the lipstick to all those of you who really love the matte liquid lipsticks in affordable range of price. Specially when they have a varied range of shades available right from mauves, to pinks, to reds and fiesty oranges.

And If you are into deep-dark lipsticks, you must should check out this dark and festive shade of Red, 01 BRAZEN RAISIN 😀
