Astor Colour Last Lipstick
This time I am going to review a red-orange shade of the same name from Astor. I got this shade from Germany as well. I decided to try this brand after seeing Heidi Klum going gaga over it (She is an advisor for the brand). I selected the lip color just going by the name and I loved the swatches so had to get it. The name makes me feel like a VIP

So many chemicals in such a small thing
- Price: I got it for 4.95 Euros.
- Shelf-life: Nothing is mentioned on the case. I found out that it lasts for 30 months. But how would I know the start and end of the 30 month period- using my nose will help here.
- Packaging: The lipstick comes in an angular black case, with some golden colour here and there. The case is strong and the cap fits tightly, making it travel friendly. The shade name and number is printed on the bottom in the same colour as the shade.
Shade- This Astor lipstick is a beautiful combination of red and orange. It is a bright colour and adds a nice pop of colour to the face. The shade is somewhat similar to Colorbar Peach Crush lipstick, except that Astor is little sheer and glossy.
My experience with Astor Color Last VIP Lipstick in Red Orange:-
The lipstick has a creamy texture and glides smoothly on lips. It gives good colour in one swipe but I need two swipes to cover pigmentation completely. I generally use it as a stain and it looks really pretty. For evening events I swipe it twice, blot and swipe again. It looks great both ways.
Astor Color Last VIP Lipstick in Red Orange (251) Swatches:-
The lipstick is little shimmery but has no shimmer particles, making it perfect for a nice sheen. The colour-payoff is good and it lasts for 3 hours (if I do not eat anything in between). After that it starts fading leaving an orange-y tint.
It does not dry my lips even though my lips are on the dehydrated side.
What I like about Astor Color Last VIP Lipstick Red Orange:

What I didn’t likeabout Astor Color Last VIP Lipstick Red Orange:
