After what seems to be an eternity I picked up couple of street wear lipsticks and lip glosses – Courtesy, their newly revamped collection and all new packing.
I have always loved the streetwear range for their price tag and decent product range. When I was in college I used to horde their color rich lipsticks.
Today I will be reviewing a gorgeous watermelon red called “fire your ex” from their ultra moist lipstick range.
These lipsticks come in a black bullet with a transparent plastic cap that has an image of flirty looking girl printed on it. I am not satisfied with the way the cap fits. Though i have carried it in my bag twice without any accidents, i always have the feeling that the cap might crack or come off.
The lipsticks are priced at an affordable Rs. 180/-.
Fire your ex is a watermelon red with hint of orange in it. Though it looks pretty fiery on the bullet, when swatched, it sheers out a bit and is wearable even for me (I run away from loud lipsticks). It is an extremely flattering color for medium skin tones.
It has a sheer semi-matte finish. On application it looks pretty glossy but settles to a healthy looking finish. It does not dry out my lips. In fact it feels pretty moisturizing and I feel that it does not sit properly on a lip balm.
Pigmentation is not great. One swipe imparts 75% coverage. Due to the texture, it does not look good if it is swiped more than two-three times. A guess good lip liner will fix that.
The lipstick stays for 3-4 hours on my lips and leaves a gorgeous tint behind. It needs reapplication after a meal and due to its texture, transfers a lot. I prefer to blot it down to reduce its transferability.
The lipstick has a faint yummy vanilla fragrance. For the price I paid, I do not have much to complain.
This is how the bullet looks.
