Lotus Herbals Purestay Lipgloss Rose Bud Review and Swatch

Lotus Herbals Purestay Lipgloss Rose Bud

We are throwing a fresher’s welcome party to our juniors in my college tomorrow. But I’m not going. As opposed to the general image I project, I’m not a party person at all. I would much rather stay at home in my pajamas watching some new horror flick or doing a Friends marathon or really just sleeping! But if I were to go, Lotus Rose Bud (which I will review and swatch today) is the kind of lipgloss shade I would wear – deep brick red with no shimmer. Although I wish I had a lipstick in this shade since I’m a lipstick girl. But sometimes its really hard to make people understand why exactly I’m not going. The general responses I get are “whaaat? ghar se kidnap kar lenge“, “ohhh..is it because you don’t have a dress?“, “you can choose from my dresses!“, “nooooo“. People meet me. My

      name is Anshita and I’m not a party animal.

Rose Bud is a deep red with a hint of brown in it and absolutely no shimmer. If you don’t like full blown reds then brick reds can be a safe territory. This shade would look really good on medium to dusky Indian skin. There is something in it which makes it a very bridal shade. And its madly pigmented. It gets opaque in just one swipe.

The texture is like a liquid lipstick. It thick but not gloopy. And being thick its a lot creamier than other lipglosses. And being creamy its ofcourse moisturising so it won’t dry your lips. As for the staying power, it stays for 2-3 hours which is pretty good for a lip gloss. I like the doe foot applicator that comes with it.

On the downside, like most red lipglosses or lipsticks, it bleeds. So use it with a lip liner and you are good.

These are the new Purestay lipglosses from Lotus Herbals which are a lot better than the botanical tinted lipglosses in terms of shades and formula. Do check out the other shades. I quite like Pink Hypnotic and Peach Pink. This is now my go-to red lipgloss ofcourse apart from my favourite red lipgloss.

Let’s check the photos and swatches:

VNA Rating: 4/5

So is it for you? Lotus Herbals Purestay Lipgloss Rose Bud is a deep brick red which would suit medium to dusky Indian skin tones beautifully. The formula is really good. Its very pigmented, thick, creamy and stays for some 2-3 hours. Its almost like a liquid lipstick. If you are a bride-to-be or just like wearing red lipsticks or lipglosses in general then this is the colour for you. Highly recommend.
