My experience with Amibika Pillai Lipgloss Slide On:
- Packaging: I love this packaging. The tube and the applicator are the usual types but the li’l extra they give in form of the mirror at the side of the tube and the tiny lights attached has just blown me away.
- Color: This shade is a very light pink and doesn’t have any shimmer particles like most of the glosses in this range. This perfect for everyday office wear as well.
- Texture: The gloss is totally non-sticky. It glides very smoothly and doesn’t get goopy at any point on the lips. Additionally, its very light and I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything on my lips when I use this
- Fragrance: It has a very mild, sweet nutty fragrance akin to the fragrance of Chambor glosses. The fragrance is not unpleasant and fades off after 3mins or so.
- Staying Power: The staying power is pretty average at about 3-4 hours. One does have to re-apply after eating or drinking.
- Pigmentation & Coverage: This shade is semi-opaque and covers up any pigmentation on my lips…Additionally its like a matte gloss but doesn’t settle into the fine lines of my lips since it is extremely moisturizing. Pigmentation is pretty good and this can be worn along and atop a lipstick. I usually use this over lipsticks like NYX Power to tone down the pink and to deflect the dullness it seems to bring to my face
- Availability: I believe Ambika Pillai products are easily available in the north India only. I haven’t seen this brand in any other outlet. I have only been able to buy them from Fashion and you website exclusively.
