I always wanted to try Lotus Makeup products as they are preservative free. Unfortunately, beauty stores in Chennai stock only their skincare products rather than their makeup products. When Lotus launched their lip crayons, I went gaga over them and searched everywhere (including online), but no luck! When I almost forgot about them, I spotted these beautiful Chubby Lip Colors in a local store and was super-excited to give them a shot. There are 10 shades available, and I picked the shade “203 Rouge Desire.”

My Experience with Lotus Colorstylo Chubby Lip Color Rouge Desire
Packaging: The packaging of this lip color is sleek and comes in the actual color of the lip crayon, making it easy to identify the shade. You need to twist from the bottom to glide up and down the lip crayon, and it comes in a retractable form. It has a clear white pull-up cap. The shade name and packaged and expiry dates are mentioned at the bottom of the tube. It is sold in a classy white and pink carton with a lip-shaped cutout to view the color of the lip crayon.
Texture: The texture of this lip color is soft, smooth, and creamy. It glides on the lips effortlessly. It is super-pigmented. One swipe can build up nice color intensity. It does not feel heavy and patchy with multiple layers. However, layering does not intensify the color payoff. It is non-sticky and lightweight. Indeed, it is quite moisturizing on the lips.
Color: “203 Rouge Desire” is a medium berry color. This shade shows up differently under different light settings: it has a coral-pink tone under sunlight and has purple-pink tone under artificial light. It will suit all skin tones and will definitely be the go-to color to dusky skin tones. This color instantly brightens up the face. It gives that “soft flush of color” look to the lips. Most of the colors in this range might look like darker or loud colors. Only the packaging looks so, not the colors. The color payoff on the lips is quite subtle with ample pigmentation. Indeed, it does give a look of natural fuller lips.
Performance: This lip color gives the most adorable glossy pouts, which is so vogue this season. It makes the lips look fuller and juicy. It feels comfortable and lightweight on the lips. It does not feather nor bleed. It is not transfer-proof either. The staying power is pretty good. It stayed on me for 5 hours even with the intake of light food. It fades off evenly and leaves behind a beautiful pink stain. The stained look will last more than 8 hours, making this lip color ideal for any day-long events. This is definitely a long-stay lip color. A good makeup remover is a must to remove it. It is quite moisturizing and not drying on the lips. It has the best formulation of glossiness, pigmentation, and moisturization. Overall, a great purchase for this summer!

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Lotus Colorstylo Chubby Lip Color Rouge Desire
If you love glossy pouts but not the sticky lip glosses, then this is the one for you! It is definitely not for matte lovers and for those who do not like glossy lipsticks. I will certainly purchase other shades in this range as there are some beautiful shades to choose from.
