Hello! everyone. Welcome to my series of 31DaysOfNudeLips wherein I shall be sharing, reviewing and swatching 31 different shades of Nude lipsticks. I am (and will be forever) an ardent lover of nude shades. They are so apt for everyday wear, be it college or office. By now, you already know me! (so no more justifications). October is my birthday month and I want to celebrate it by sharing a nude lip shade every single day. Also, I shall not be mentioning those lipsticks which I’ve already reviewed on my blog. Hoping you enjoy this series as much as I do, let’s begin in no particular order. The lipstick that I’ve chosen for Day 10 is Diana Of London 2000 Kisses wonderful lipstick in the shade Raspberry (17).
Price: Rs.779 for 8ml product.
Packaging: Diana Of London 2000 Kisses wonderful lipstick comes in a transparent plastic packaging which reflects the shade of the lipstick. The wand is long and not pointy, the bristles go in all directions as seen in the picture above. Yet, somehow, you will not face difficulty in applying the lipstick precisely.
Texture and pigmentation: The texture of this lipstick is thick like a mousse. This particular shade goes opaque in a couple of swipes on my pigmented lips. The formula is not drying and stays comfortable pretty much the entire day.
The shade Raspberry (17) is a very light berry shade, sometimes it looks like a grey toned brown to me, which will suit fair to medium skintones and slightly beyond. It smells like incense sticks.
My verdict on Diana Of London 2000 Kisses wonderful lipstick:
I really like the formula of Diana Of London 2000 Kisses wonderful lipstick. The lipstick doesn’t dry out completely but takes a minute to set on the lips. Once set, it doesn’t transfer at all. Despite being matte, this lipstick does not feel drying at all. It stays on for 5 plus hours easily and with the course of time you can feel the lipstick getting dry (not the lips, mind it!). This shade is perfect to pair with smoked out eyes or heavy makeup as it will not alter with any tones. When worn on its own, it does make my face look a bit dull. For those preferring matte, long-lasting, transfer-proof formula with a comfortable feel then do try this range out.
