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.

My Take on the product:

I have always been a great fan of Lotus Herbals, Thanks to their Best Sunscreens. Also I have used their scrub and Masque from their White glow range and I quite liked it. When I saw their cosmetic range, I was initially very skeptical but when I later tried it I am pretty impressed especially for the price they are coming for. I have used their Botanical tinted lip gloss which is good. So I went ahead and bought the Lipstick from their pure color range. The shade I bought is called Star Glow. It’s a pinkish peach color with gold shimmers in it. There are other beautiful shades like Rosewood, Cinnamon, Carnation & Peach creme which you might really like. I am personally going to pick up Cinnamon next time. Coming to the packaging, It has a cute beige and gold packaging. The lasting power is really good. I mean it easily survives 3-4 hours but after the color fades the shimmers still stay on my lips which I do not like at all, so I have to remove them with a cleanser. 
See the below picture and notice the gold shimmers in it.

The color looks very different in different lights.

Now quickly listing out the Pros & Cons,

Pros of  Lotus Herbals Pure Colors Lip Color :   

  • The packaging is good.
  • 12 amazing shades to pick your favorite one.
  • Natural Ingredients – Jojoba & Aloe vera.
  • The texture is very smooth and glides well.
  • Pigmentation is good. A single swipe builds up the color.
  • Does not bleed in the corners of the lips.
  • Staying power is decent (3-4 hours)

Cons of  Lotus Herbals Pure Colors Lip Color:  L
  • The shimmers tend to settle down in the fine lines. You actually need a cleanser to remove those. ( I find it very annoying )
  • Few might find these lipsticks very drying after some time of application.
  • This shade is not for every day/daily use.
  • The shimmers may not be liked by everybody.

And this is how it looks on me…………

Rating – 4/5

Would I repurchase :?  Not this one, but I want to buy the shades Rosewood & Cinnamon from this collection.

Would I recommend :? Yeah!! Do check out the shades in this collection. You may really like it.
