My experience with the product-
I was pretty excited when I received my product. I was looking for a rich red lipstick shade on a more affordable side, and around that time when I saw that Nykaa had recently launched their ultra matte lipstick, I could not hold myself. I had to try it! It was the shade ‘Marilyn’ that got me hooked. The shade is totally the kind of red I was looking for. Has a blue undertone to it with a hint of raspberry pink.
The first time I tried the lipstick, I was totally blown away with the color, texture and pigmentation of the product, but was later on let down with the amount of lipstick that kept transferring through out the day.The lipstick is not transfer proof, but interestingly the color stays on the lips throughout the day, meaning, it has a strong staining power that no mater how much the lipstick transfers, it’ll still look like you have a good amount of color on. Considering the price, even though it’s fairly priced, I just feel that it came with better staying power. In terms of the color of the lipstick, I am 100 percent happy, but the way it transfers made me pretty upset. I feel the product would be a great option for photo-shoots, but not so great to wear it on a special occasions or for a long day out.
