Bharat and Dorris Lip Gloss in 008 - Review, Swatch and LOTD


As you might have noticed, I have suddenly become experimental with lip products. 

I ordered two lip glosses from Bharat and Dorris and I will be reviewing the shade No. 08 which is a beautiful peachy-pink color today.

My Experience

These lip glosses come packed in traditional tube with a transparent barrel. The black handle and the black carton packing remind me of MAC lip glasses. The packing is very comfortable and the applicator is a doe-foot one. The tube has a restriction that prevents product wastage.

The Texture of this lip gloss is creamy and thick. Almost like a liquid lipstick. “lacquer like lip gels” as they call it. It is insanely pigmented and you can see how it has gone opaque on my moderately pigmented lips.

It feels little sticky but not heavy or in any way uncomfortable to sport. The color and the texture imparts a beautiful luscious look to the lips without looking OTT. 

Due to the texture and pigmentation, this lip gloss settles into the fine lines if worn alone. But on top of a lip liner, this one is a pleasure to sport. Due to the very same reason, i find it quite difficult to get a mistake free sharp application. As the pigmentation is insane, correcting mistakes is a pain. I prefer applying this with a small brush instead of the doe-foot applicator.

The product, if worn alone stays for a decent 2.5-3 hours and survives mild snacks. When it wears off, it leaves a mild tint and my lips do not feel drying. On top of a lip liner it wears even better.

It does not bleed wildly but for newbies, using a lip liner is recommended as it makes the job easier.

Availability is a con as these are only available in select cities and the rest of us have to rely on their online shopping portal.

Bharat and Dorris Lip Gloss in Shade 008.
INR. 350/- for 8 ml tube.

What I Like:
  1. Beautiful color.
  2. Superbly pigmented. Almost like a lip lacquer. Gives opaque coverage on its own.
  3. Comfortable to sport.
  4. Decent Staying power.
  5. My lips do not feel dry after the product wears off.
  6. Leaves a faint yet beautiful tint.
  7. Nice Packing.
  8. Affordable.

What I Hate:
  1. I find the product little difficult to control when compared to sheer glosses.
  2. May settle into fine lines if worn on its own.
  3. Extremely Shabby online service. The lady called me after 5 days of placing the order asking me what I wanted for the money I paid.

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating

This is indeed one of the best lip glosses available. Quality exceeds the price we pay. Girls with pigmented lips will love these. Despite their awkward service, I look forward to try more from their brand. Highly recommended.

Have you tried any Bharat and Dorris Products? Which one would you recommend? Am eyeing their gel liners next.

    There is no mechanism to automatically let you know once the order is shipped and the person who attends the phone only knows Hindi so i found it little difficult :(
