Along with the Innisfree Long Wear Cushion Foundation (reviewed here) I had also been using the Innisfree Color Glow Lipstick in shade # 5. Currently I am loving the deep plum and berry shades a lot and since this looked like a pretty deep plum color to me, that made me quite excited to try this out. Let’s get to the review part and find out more about it!
About The Looks!
The packaging is very similar to the Innisfree Long Wear Cushion Foundation. It comes in an off-white box which has the name of the brand and the product printed on one side. Another side has the price, quantity printed. On one of the openings the shelf life is also mentioned and the ingredients are missing. The lipstick also comes in an off-white packaging with the bottom revealing the color making it easy to locate if you have more than two lipsticks from the same brand. The packaging is simple and sturdy. As I mentioned in my last review the brand recycles all the empty packages and even the boxes are made by recycled paper and printed by organic soy ink. So eco-friendly!
Price – INR 1050
Net Content – 3.5 gm
Ingredients – Not mentioned 🙁
Shelf Life – 18 months
My experience and views about the Color Glow Lipstick in shade # 5!
The first thing I love about the lipstick is the color! Its bright yet deep and perfect for fall and winter. If you are afraid of super dark lippies then this one is perfect for you, because it is a dark color yet makes your face look brighter. The lipstick shade has a bit hint of marsala color with purple undertones. Its a very unique color I have ever come across. I really like this color a lot! It will suit all the skin tones and you can easily pull this color off till spring. Its that good!
Coming to the texture, its super creamy! The lipstick says color glow, by that I guess it meant creamy glow with some shine in it. Personally I am not a fan of creamy or shiny textured lipsticks, but this one is really an exception. If you look into the pictures, you might agree with me that it really looks great on me! In spite of the shine it has, it looks great! I have already used this lipstick in a few of my outings! For a change I like this creamy finish lipstick! It also keeps my lips hydrated. It would have been awesome if this color was in matte texture!
The lipstick bullet looks pretty dark and vampy, but the pigmentation is not the same. It not sheer but its not very pigmented either. Again, it is because of the super creamy texture, as far as I believe. I layer it up and it looks pretty okay and the color gets better. I love dark and vampy colors but if you don’t then just a single layer would be fine. Though even with layering, it is not at all super dark or vampy. I would have loved it more if it was a little more pigmented!
It has an average lasting power, credits to the creamy texture, again! Without meals, it can last upto 6 hours and with drinks 4 – 5 hours. It doesn’t disappear completely but leaves a stain like color on lips which comes out if you wash it with water. But I like to reapply the lipstick after meals, as I like the lipstick color better than its leftover stain. 🙂
If you want to get this lipstick or any other awesome products from Innisfree then certainly head out to their stores as they currently have some awesome Diwali offers running!! Take advantage of those when you can!!
Overall I think it is a great lipstick for everyone! It will suit all the skin tones and it is a perfect blend of a dark and bright color. The lipstick is perfect for fall, winter and spring. I love the color a lot and also impressed with its lasting power which I thought won’t be much.
