By Zara, Lotus Herbals Cosmetics – Floral Glam Lipstick
I have a very long standing consumer relationship with Lotus. I’ve been using their sunscreens since 5yrs now and will probably continue to do so. They have really improved on their product line and packaging and from skincare to hair care now to cosmetics, Lotus seems to be on its way to excelling in all fields.
I happened to come across these lipsticks about 2months earlier and simply had to buy it. For one thing, they have a very classy metallic twist up tube packaging which was the initial thing that peaked my interest. The shop had only about 7 colors and of them, I was pretty confused between O Orange, Apple Berry and Sensuous Mauve. But since I’d never tried a lipstick from Lotus before, I decided to buy just one to try it out. Now I wish I’d bought all three!
I tried taking sharper pics of the lipstick, but the body of the lipstick is so shiny that my bechaara camera also couldn’t manage to take proper pics. Sorry for that!

As I mentioned before, what attracted me to these lippies was the packaging. On closer perusal, I realised that these lipstick tubes don’t have the usual mechanism of popping the top lid prior to application. Instead it just has a gold plate on the top. On twisting the bottom of the tube, the same mechanism which unwinds the lipstick also flips the gold plate allowing the lipstick to emerge. The same thing applies while closing. So simple yet different! I was really impressed by this.
My experience with experience with Sensuous Mauve:
Apart from the packaging which I’ve harped about sufficiently by now , there are plenty other merits of this lippy. For starters, it glides very smoothly which is an important pre-requisite of a good lipstick. No tugging involved and the color spreads evenly on application. The pigmentation of all shades I tried out were great and Sensuous Mauve is no exception
This lipstick is a lovely, warm toned matte Mauve-plum shade with a hint of shine which lends that most sought after moisturized look. It is a medium coverage lipstick which doesn’t dry out my lips. This is a quality I always look out for in lippies since I have too many fine lines on my lips which get highlighted if the lipstick I’m wearing has a drying effect. This is one reason I stay usually stay away from Matte lippies..I feel like I have ‘old-lady lips’ when they dry out
With all these upsides, its no wonder this has become one of my most used lippies. Love it! Its the perfect shade and the perfect texture

How the lipstick looks on my lips
What I liked about Lotus Herbals Floral Glam Lipstick
- Very moisturizing and has a smooth texture
- Very good coverage
- Awesome pigmentation
- Glides easily without tugging
- Classy packaging. Anyone would feel proud to carry this around
- The new wind-up mechanism is very interesting
- Staying power is good and will stay put on the lips until I eat something..But even then, it leaves a nice hint of color.
What I do not like Lotus Herbals Floral Glam Shine Lipstick
- Availability is an issue. The next time I went to buy the O-Orange shade, I was informed that the Lotus counter had been closed. And now I’m unable to find it anywhere.
Will I buy it again: I’d love to get O-Orange, but I have to find a Lotus counter first!
Have you tried this lipstick or any other shade in this range?
