My thoughts
There is nothing wrong about these lipsticks – ok maybe a few things like the shoddy golden packaging and the scent. I do not like the scent and that lingering taste in my mouth. It smells like watermelons – a bitter watermelon to be precise. No I don’t like my lipsticks smelling like watermelons; not my thing. Having said all of that, the lipsticks are good!

I am going to review 15 Hot Pink Rage, 03 Orange Gina and 17 Plumrose. Hot Pink Rage is a bright pink (slightly cool toned) with a matte finish. It gives an amazing coverage but since its matte and feels drying, you might wanna moisturize your lips before application. Orange Gina is a metallic warm orange and has very fine golden shimmer. It feels creamy but it’s not as pigmented as Hot Pink Rage and the frosty finish somewhat enhances lip lines. Also, I have noticed that the color doesn't apply evenly and skips. Plumrose is a pink mauve with a crème finish – my absolute favorite. It applies smoothly, has excellent pigmentation and feels moisturizing.

In terms of longevity, these lipsticks last long which is nice if you ask me. I get about three hours of wear time from Hot Pink Rage and Plumrose and two and a half hours from Orange Gina – or maybe more if I just stop licking my lips every now and then. All things considered, I highly recommend checking these out. Love the intensity!

You might like it if…
  • You expect rich color pay off
  • You expect it last long on your lips
  • Cream finish (17 Plumrose) feels comfortable and hydrating
You might not like it if…
  • Like me, you don’t fancy the golden packaging
  • The scent bothers you
  • Matte formula feels drying
  • Pearl finish (03 Orange Gina) enhance lip lines
