Lotus Herbals Seduction Botanical Tinted Lip Gloss in Lychee Squash: Review & Swatches and a SURPRISE!!

The current hot product in the cosmetics market is the  Lotus Herbals Seduction Botanical Tinted Lip Gloss. Im not saying it for the heck of it but whichever blog I view has reviews on these at the moment so how will Divassence! be left far behind? Here is my take on the product.




What the company claims:
 A unique, high gloss lip care formulation with a non-sticky feel. Enriched with botanical extracts of Grapes and Jojoba that make lips soft and supple for long. The unique product qualities are:
  • Sponge Brush Applicator for smooth even application
  • Freedom to use as top coat without affecting lip color
sponge brush applicator


Ingredient(s):
Jojoba: Jojoba helps promote healing of the skin.
Its antimicrobial properties in addition to the chemical composition that closely resembles skin’s natural sebum, makes it easy to absorb and non-allergic even in the most sensitive individuals.

The shade Im going to review today is Lychee Squash. It is a peachy pink shade with a  brown undertone. It also has tiny golden shimmer particles.


Likes:
  • The colors; all the colors are made keeping in mind the indian skin tone.
  • Can be worn separately or with a lipstick. I love it both ways.
  • Stays on for 2-3 hours without eating and I think it is good for a sheer gloss
  • Budget friendly lipgloss; (MRP Rs 225 and Rs 198 at Healthkart)
  • Love the fact that it has natural ingredients – it has botanical extracts of grape and jojoba
  • Consistency; it is neither runny nor too sticky. 
  • Staying power is pretty decent. Stayed on me for 2 hours which is good for a sheer gloss



Dislikes:
  • I do not like the shimmer; the golden shimmer kills the color for me; I don’t use it for regular wear because of the shimmer
  • Other than jojoba and grape extracts the ingredients aren’t mentioned
  • This is a pretty sheer gloss. The color doesn’t show on the lips with one swipe; 2 to 3 swipes are needed for the color to show up on the lips. (as shown in the swatch)
  • The shimmer is hard to get off after the lipgloss fades off

Swatch:




Overall Im impressed with the gloss minus the shimmer; I got myself one more lipgloss from this collection to see if all of them have these shimmer and thankfully they don’t. :) 

I would definitely give it a 4/5

    Colorbar is available in Saravana Stores, Usman Road, next to Rmkv Shop. I heard it is also available in a shop called Trends in Besant Nagar. I have not gone there still.

  • Trends has colorbar is it? I never knew that :) hmmm.. must check it out soon.. And saravana stores is always crowded and it is so painful to shop there with all the pushing and pulling and the SAs are not very friendly :(
