Studiowest Irresistible Lipstick Almost Nude 602: My kind of nude with everything.

I have been enjoying my own lipstick stash like anything. I have been pulling out lipsticks I bought, but never used them enough to enjoy well. And these days, as I revisit my treasure chest, I am hooked onto some products I never somehow reviewed. Studiowest Irresistible Lipstick is one such product. When Westside came out with their line of makeup, I was so intrigued. One day, during my mall visit, I found that the makeup was available. Any beauty junkie would give in, right? I gave in and apart from their deo, got this lipstick. I so loved the colour, but somehow, never used it enough until last few months and I am seriously hooked.

As the bullet size is going down rapidly, I thought of posting my review. Alright, no more digression.

Price: Rs 295 only.

My Experience of Studiowest Irresistible Lipstick Almost Nude:

The lipstick, as you see, comes in a black casing which has the look and feel of high end packaging.
It has lightly etched lines for design which, in my case, has almost vanished blame it on always carrying it in my bag.

Almost Nude 602 is a mauvish-pinkish brownish colour ( am I making sense?) and the tinges are perfectly balanced. On my skin tone it shows up very well and is more of a neutral colour. Sometimes, I top it with glosses. If I want more of cooler tinge, I wear my Revlon Superlustrous Lipgloss or if I want a more muted tone, I use my MAC Lipglass.

Texturewise, it is the old school neither-soft-nor-hard bullet. One swipe imparts enough pigment; but who wears lipstick in one swipe? To get thing perfectly filled I always go over a couple of times ( and also because I want to use this up faster) and that way, I get a nice opaque finish.

The staying power is impressive. With light snacks etc. I can get away for about 5 to 6 hours. It leaves a tint which is removable easily.

That being said, I must warn you about the packaging. The base of the twister comes off from the casing. I can always push it back, but still you should know.

One of my friends got a new lipstick. On opening the seal she found the tip of the bullet was slightly damaged.


Nevertheless, this particular lipstick has become one of my favourites and because I am going through a natural-look phase, I seem to be constantly reaching out for this one. Perhaps it's one of my perfect nude lipsticks of all time.

Shall I repurchase? I have had this lisptick for almost two years now and have been constantly using for almost last 8 months. So, even though I love it to the core, I doubt if I want to go back to it again or go for new fish in the sea of lipsticks.

Do I recommend? I do. Rs 295 isn't too high in the rising price of makeup in the Indian market. I got more than what I paid for. So, I would highly recommend checking out these lipsticks as they have a decent selection of colours as well.


Xoxo.
