  • Texture : True to its claims, it is the lightest lipstick I have ever come across. It slides very smoothly on the lips and moisturises them. So there is absolutely no need to wear a lip balm underneath. It doesn’t settle down into the fine lines of the lips. It has a matte finish but gives a soft moisturised finish the lips owing to its light creamy texture.However, when I was testing it at the store, I was constantly cleansing my lips to try out various shades and lipstick was feathering on application on my extremely dry lips. I never had the problem after that.

  • Pigmentation : The colour payoff is really good and the colour comes out well with just one swipe. The colour I had got for myself was Silk pink (:weep: clearly the wrong shade for me :(( ).

The site however had listed down a completely different shade! They are by no means comparable!

  • Staying power : The lipstick stayed on my lips for 3 hours in spite of drinking and eating. However after 3 hours, it started to fade leaving behind a very light even tint. And the best part is, my lips didn’t crave for moisture for more than 2 hrs after it wore off.

 

Likes:

1)      Very smooth and creamy texture

2)      Highly moisturising.

3)      Claims to have anti-aging properties.

4)      Doesn’t bleed or feather

5)      Doesn’t settle into fine lines

6)      Staying power may not be high. But I like the fact it kept my lips moisturised longer than any lip balm. And not to forget it stays even after meals.

7)      Pigmentation

Dislikes:

1)      Contains SPF but they have not mentioned the SPF factor.

2)      If you want a longer lasting lipstick, this may not be your choice.

3)      The shade doesn’t suit me :(( I know this is not really a con but I regret it badly L

Wise she rating : 4.5/5

Will I repurchase : Of course yes! I love this lipstick so much that I would really like to get the right shade for me from this range.

 

I love the Chambor eye pencil already and now this one. Both the products I had got from them didn’t fail to impress me. I’m going to try more from Chambor 🙂

  1. the products sounds good but OMG! the difference in the site and real color??? 😯 😯
    but you didnt bought it online right?

    • No. It was bcoz of the store’s lighting :(( I tried so many colors and chose this one but as fate would have it.. 😥 boohoo.. pls don’t remind me again :weep: :weep:

  2. Haha….they named a brown colour PINK !!1 Lol….sorry for you Maha…but LOL…haha :laugh: :laugh: :silly: :silly: next time please check different sites for review of the colour you want to buy….atleast you’l get to see real swatches and not misleading paints !!

    • No Mitra. It was the store’s lighting that fooled me not the site 🙁 I just checked the color out of curiosity when I was checking the site for writing what the company claims and I was shocked 😯 Either the one who listed down the colors on the site was drunk or color blind 😛

    • Anju, do give it a try :)) It is really nice and they have some other nice shades too. I guess the silk pop and silk woods shades are the most popular shades in this collection 🙂

  3. dont worry maha . even i too bought a lipstick from maybelline last week,.. the shade does nt suit me at all.
    I have called up the store manager and going to return it.
    by the way loved chambor. even i tried the much raved shade silk pop at the store but somehow it did not suit me well. am a person who could carry peaches well but no pinks. i think after reading ur review I may buy a pink shade too.
    and yup !!! I miss my saravana stores!!!!!
    used to be a regular visitor there !!!!

    • Oh the idea of returnign didn’t strike me. But I’m using it with a brown lipstick and that way it suits me well 🙂 and there ought to be some pink that suits everyone 🙂 This one is wine coloured and hence the problem 🙁 Btw you from Chennai? Thats great! And I know I went there after so many years! It has now become a cosmetic heaven at least as far as Chennai is concerned.

  4. Great review Maha…the colour is so pretty..try to mix it with some other lipstick to get a shade which suits you..and you know..femina is giving a chambor hamper containing a lipstick, eyeshadow and eye pencil with 1 year subscription…I just subscribed to it and after reading you review, I am super excited and impatient to get that hamper..

    • Thanks Prachi 🙂 I do mix it with a brown and that way it works for me 🙂 And femina is giving a hamper? Thats great 🙂 It will be worth it coz Chambor is really good IMO 🙂

  5. I got this same brand of lipstick last week in silk rush…its a close to plum color.Loving it so far cos its nice and moisturising….:)

  6. hey, why does this shade not suit u? i have the same problem. i always test the lipsticks on my hands and end up buying the totally wrong shade. :pain: any suggestion plz……

    • Don’t try it on your hands bulbul. You can see how good this color looks good on my hand 🙁 Most of the shops always have a tester. So you would probably want to try them at least in the beginning.

      • Well used to suffer from the same issue..now I just dont listen to the SA.I swatch on my hand step into natural light and have a look ….am warm toned so i look for a blue undertone in order to avoid that shade.Its more of an elimination procedure with me.But most of the time I also try the shade I wanna pick.Carry a lip brush and pick the color at the base of the lipstick,apply..step into natural light and have a look.I was fooled by the fancy lighting in stores like so many times particularly in malls.Hope this helps u…happy shopping. :-))

  7. Oh and hey if ur looking for a pink then try the lakme fantasy collection satin lipstick in shade 134.Its a nice pink for warm toned women.I finally found me pink in that which is neither too in your face bright nor overtly subtle 😛 ,just right.It cost me 225/- and well shade 133 is also awesome,bought that too :-)) ..am guessing ur warm toned from your post.Hope this helps too 🙂

    • Thanks for the reco Amritha 🙂 Yes I am warm toned and so keeping my fingers crossed that it will suit me :fingersxd: And that lip brush tip is good :yes: I’ll do that the next time I go shopping 🙂
