I have too many Lipsticks is something you’ll never hear me say. I’m a huge Lipstick junkie and there is always room for one more Lipstick in my collection. I don’t use any makeup apart from Lipsticks and hence I have a decent collection of them. I feel a lipstick not only brightens up my face but my day as well.
I prefer matte Lipsticks and since I’m always on a budget I’m on the lookout for affordable matte Lipsticks that don’t put a hole in my pocket.
I recently received three matte Lipsticks from a brand called Bonjour Paris India and these Lipsticks have made their way into my heart and my everyday Lipstick collection. Read on more to know why.
Brand says: Bonjour Paris introduces matt in the finest shades. Dual 2 in 1 formulation is crème based at the same time giving a total matt effect on application. This ensures that the lips are not dehydrated and maintains the suppleness of the lips. Enriched with vitamin E. Available in irresistible colours that enhance and compliment Indian looks.
- Made of premium quality ingredients for extra soft and smooth finish
- Saturated with intense colour pigments
- Contains vitamin E and moisturizers which heal dry lips
- Long lasting 9-5
- Suitable for daily use
Availability: These Lipsticks are easily available on Amazon or you can purchase them directly from the Bonjour Paris India website.
Packaging: They come in an outer cardboard box with all the details printed on it. The lipstick comes in a plastic wrap so you know that you have received a new piece. The bullets are silver in color and sturdy. The twist mechanism is smooth and easy. The bullet isn’t flimsy and hence perfect to carry around with you.
Smell: The super matte varient doesn’t have any fragrance but the creamy matte has an artificial vanilla Fragrance. It’s not too strong or overpowering and doesn’t stay for long so people with sensitive noses won’t have an issue with it.
Texture- The super matte are really matte in texture and tug just a lil when applied. The creamy matte is really smooth in texture and glides easily like butter.
Shades: I received two super matte shades and one creamy matte shade
03- Dusky Pink (creamy matte)
11- Matte Dusky Rose (super Matte)
15-Matte Pink Rose (Super Matte)
Color- The shade 03 is a beautiful brick red shade with little brown undertones which makes it a beautiful MLBB shade for my pigmented lips. It has warm undertones and will suit Indian skintones beautifully.
The shade 11 is my favourite of the lot and the shade that I’m wearing almost daily. It’s a beautiful pinkish mauve shade which looks great on every outfit and occasion. This is perfect for Indian skintones especially for medium skintone or wheatish complexions like mine.
Shade 13 is a beautiful blue toned pink shade which instantly brightens up my face and is perfect for parties. It’s a gorgeous pink shade which will suit every skintone.
My experience: I have been using these Lipsticks everyday and I love them. They are easy to wear and no drying. They cover pigmentation in one swipe and two swipes are enough to get you the perfect shade. The super matte ones easily last for 5-6 hours with meals and light snacks in between. The creamy matte lasts for 4-5 hours with snacks and meals. They are all gorgeous shades that will work well with Indian skin tones. These budget friendly lipsticks gives you a chance to try some great new shades without putting a hole in your pocket.
