  • It has a good staying power. And it stays up to 4-5 hours with light snacks.
  • It is a great shade for summers!
  • One thing I just like about this lipstick is the natural tint it leaves behind. The tint stays on for more than 6 hours.
  • It has a shelf life of 36 months.

  • The bullet broke at the base!
  • And it provides sheer coverage. It’s natural to expect a lipstick priced close to 1k to offer good coverage. However, you can layer it up to build the color.
  • It dried out my lips!?
  • Furthermore, it doesn’t survive a meal. It needs reapplication.
  • It transfers a little on glasses.
  • And it is expensive.

Rating : 3.9/5.


  • This lipstick will look gorgeous on fair and wheatish-skinned beauties.
  • Dusky and dark-skinned beauties will be better off without this shade.
  • Applying lip balm underneath this lipstick is a must. Don’t skip it.


I have to say I’m pretty disappointed with this lipstick. It dries out my lips. And on top of that the bullet broke. I mean what is the point of getting an expensive lipstick if it’s going to pull your legs out like this. But the shade is really good. I can see myself using it summer. Just be careful with the bullet.

Would I recommend this? Not really. The  shade makes me say a ‘aye’ but the bullet-breaking makes me say a big ‘NAY’.
