Anyways.. so it was just another day when I was in a store laying my hands on a few skin care stuff that you saw in the recent haul post,where my retinas landed on something that looked EXACTLY similar to Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams.. Needless to say I jumped on it and got to I know it was Incolor Matte Me Lip Cream. Now how similar you think a dupe can be in terms of packaging? see yourself:
LOL.. Its like Incolor used the same container altogether :P
I couldn't find the product or website online
Price vs Quantity: INR 250/6ml
Like I said,the packaging is identical to the sleek matte me lip creams. The container is sharp edged squarish which gives a neat look. the cap is matte black and non flimsy.I'm not too impressed with the wand though,its too straight.A little doe-foot is always more convenient.
Bummer!that they don't have shade names but numbers. The one I have is in 407 and is a *turn -ur-heads-this-side* kinda orange based red. Its super bright and not for the ones with a faint heart. It instantly brightens up the face and perks up the whole look but you really need to go subtle everywhere else when you have THIS on! Its tailored for the warm Asian skin tone!
Till you have a cotton dipped in makeup remover in your hands...like literally! It just won't budge. You can have a 5 course meal,three times a day and it-won't-budge and I really like that coz with this formula touch ups are a distant dream,you will have to wipe it all out and reapply otherwise. So I'm happy it stays till the time you would probably want it to.
Now this is a bit confusing. I mean,this is my first matte lip cream and I really don't know to be honest if they are all drying or just this one.The formula doesn't feel very comfortable. It gives me a oh-I-have-something-on-my lips kinda feel. Or maybe its just me...
And now the lip Swatches in different lights to give you a better of the shade:
The one in the daylight is true to the colour. I tired to pair it with a clear clear gloss to see how it looks and feels and here are the results:
Even after applying the gloss,the staying power wasn't affected instead the lips definitely became moist..but then what's the point of a matte lip cream if you apply a shiny gloss over it..Point! Eh..?
- Super Cheap
- Dupe of Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream
- Fantastic bright Orangy Red shade
- Provides a super matte finish
- Stays on all day long
- Suits warm skin tones
- Very pigmented
- You need to exfoliate well before applying this
- The applicator isn't that amazing
- Accentuates fine lines
I just so wish they had a dupe of Fandango Purple! Sighhh..!
