Currently, I am searching out for Miss Claire lip creams and few of the Incolor Matte Me shades. These are available online but online rates are quite inflated, which is why I wanna buy it from counters; plus you can get testers swatched and choose from them. This lookout of me, forces me to inquire about various such brands at every possible makeup counters. During one such hunt, I discovered the 7 Heaven’s Color Intense lipstick range. I’ve seen these on Flipkart and Amazon. If you intend to buy these, then here’s the link-
There are a lot of shades available in this range. I liked two three shades and ultimately settled upon the shade number 304: Nude Beige. It is a soft muted pink with slight brown undertones. With single swipe it would look almost like a nude shade, but with second layer the pink color would be emphasized more. The lipstick isn’t quite buttery soft. It doesn’t glide onto the lips but then it isn’t too tough to apply either. The texture of the lipstick is soft matte, similar to Maybelline’s Color-Show Matte lipsticks, reviewed here-
There’s no sheen to it but a matte effect which isn’t too drying. In fact, the lipstick is moisturizing yet it provides a slight matte finish, if you know what I mean.
The lipstick would stay onto your lips for more than 2 hours and it would gradually start fading but it does not fade away completely. A soft tint is left behind, plus the moisturization. But the lipstick would clearly vanish if you have a meal or snack. In that case, re-application is a must.
Overall, I like this lipstick because in summers you don’t want glossy lips with sweat drooling over your upper lip area *GROSS* , so a matte lipstick if usually preferable. Yet there are days when your lips feel dry and parched so slight moisture caters to that need as well. One thing which I did not like is the fragrance of the lipstick. It gives off a waxy smell.
