8 shades ranging from natural to The Most The Most Sophisticated and from Softer hues to more sensuous, beautiful lips for Naturally!”

Packaging : This lipstick comes in very pretty baby pink transparent  packaging with the shade number at one end and shade color (in plastic) on the other end. There is small silver knob that needs to be slid down to open the lipstick. The case closes with a click that ensures the lipstick won’t open while travelling.  Its easy to see the recognize the lipstick from outside because of the colored end of the casing.

Texture & Pigmentation : The lipstick is very smooth and soft though not as buttery as Chambor lipsticks. It glides easily on lips and gives medium coverage in single swipe. Coverage is buildable and true color is achieved in 2-3 swipes. It gives good hydration and even without lip balm underneath, lips feel supple and moisturized.

Finish: It gives a healthy semi-glossy finish on applying- its neither completely matte nor completely glossy.

Ingredients: The company claims 100% natural ingredients though complete list of ingredients is not given.

Staying Power: Staying power is a OK..about 2-3  hours without eating and drinking and it fades leaving even tint on the lips.Staying power is lesser when applied sheerly.  This is the most that can be expected from moisturizing lipsticks though some like Revlon Colorburst can survive meals also. This one, however, vanishes completely with eating and drinking.

Scent: It has a mild natural scent which seems like a mixture of lemon tea  and fresh green grass to me. The lemon tea is probably the smell of green tea which is included in the partial list of ingredients.

Shade selection:  Shade selection is quite limited. There are 8 shades in this range all of which  are pinks and peachy-pink colors with the exception of 1 red shade and 1 prune shade. All the shades are lovely though some may be a tad light for medium/dusky skin tones. Those who like pinks and peach shades must try at least one shade from this range.

The shade I own is ‘08 Rose Delicat‘. It is one of the subtler shades from the range and is a muted medium cool pink with a mauve undertone. Single swipe gives a very natural rosy look to the lips and 2-3 swipes gives its true color.

The GOOD about Bourjois Natural sweet kiss lipstick :

1. 100% natural ingredients

2. Beautiful packaging which is sturdy and its easy to identify shades from outside.

3. Soft, smooth texture with good pigmentation and buildable coverage.

4. Good moisturization, fades with even tint on lips

5. Gives healthy semi-glossy look to the lips, keeps them soft and supple.

6. Does not settle in fine lines.

7. Beautiful shades. Though the selection is limited, the shades in itself are exquisite.

The NOT-SO-GOOD about Bourjois Natural sweet kiss lipstick :

1. Staying power is not so good..max upto 3 hours leaving behind slight even tint on lips. Completely vanishes with meals.

2. Expensive.

3. Limited shades though very nice options for those who like peaches and pinks.

This is how it looks on me-

I’ve also worn this lipstick  in my post on natural day time makeup HERE.

Final Verdict : The lipstick has a very attractive and sturdy packaging that will appeal to most women. The texture is quite soft, moisturization and semi-glossy finish is excellent but it loses points for its lesser staying power. The shades are limited though individually each of them are lovely. I would expect more quantity and perhaps better staying power at this price. Despite its limitations, its one of the lipsticks I reach for the most- for its beautiful color, finish and lastly the pretty transparent pink packaging! 😛

Rating: 4/5

Will I repurchase this ? If under discount or clubbed with an offer, most definitely YES! The shades are beautiful for everyday looks or to pair with dramatic eyes.

Chambor Silk touch lipstick #670 'Silk Woods' Review + FOTD

Hi everyone!

Today I am reviewing ‘Silk Touch Lipstick‘ from ‘Chambor‘ in shade #670 ‘Silk Woods‘.

Chambor is one of my favorite makeup brands and I find their lipsticks one of the best I’ve used so far.  It is a highly underrated and undermarketed brand but their products are a pleasure to use.

Chambor 'Silk Touch Lipstick'

Price : Rs 525. I got it at New Beauty Centre ,Khar at 10% off for Rs 473. According to the SA this is a new ‘improved’ range as it says on the outer carton too.

Quantity : 4.5  g which is more than average. Revlon Colorburst contains 3.7 g and Maybelline Colorsensational 4 g.

Info from the new Chambor website (Earlier there was limited info available at Baccarose Cosmetics website )

” Every lipstick has a story to tell… & so does the Chambor Lipsticks…

A Splash of Color & a Kiss of Silk…
with Chambor’s New Silk Touch Lipsticks…

Chambor now releases its latest Hit Lipstick: the Classic Silk Touch in a dreamy avatar that boosts the lips while creating spectrum of looks: from daring to delicate, innocent to sexy that suit any occasion…

A perfect basic lipstick which is a must have for all CHAMBOR Fans. Chambor introduced this lipstick, with its captivating sheer luminosity & feather light touch emerges as the most talked about lipstick in town. It gives instant pleasure to the mouth in one application only, weaving magic around the person wearing it…

Available in a wide range of 18 captivating hues. Our favourite Lipstick Shade this season is the SILK BLAZE which suits the festive mood of celebration this year…

So go on & have splashing fun with 18 different shades of Silk Touch & get Silk Kissed…”


Packaging : The ‘Silk touch lipstick’ range comes in dark navy blue and silver cuboidal shape packagine which is the same size as a Revlon Colorburst or Maybelline color sensational lipstick. It has the shade number and name printed on end and the other end is blank. It has a silver rose on the cap as in the pic which is the trademark of Chambor products.

The lipstick tip is curved to fit with the curve of the lips for easier application. I find the packaging very elegant but there’s no way to determine which shade is inside from outside which is a drawback.

Texture: The most special thing about Chambor lipsticks is their texture. They are super soft and glide on the lips like butter.

Pigmentation: They are very pigmented and give full coverage in a single swipe. Since they are so soft , they can be mixed with lip balm to give just a tint also.

Chambor Silk Touch Lipstick - 'Silk woods'

Finish: They are matte finish but since they are so creamy, they give a very moisturized almost slighly glossy look to the lips on application. They don’t feel heavy on the lips and are very comfortable to wear.

Moisturization: They are highly moisturizing and even after few hours of application, lips feel soft.

Ingredients: They contain Beeswax, Shea Butter, Castor oil and other waxes as well which explains their moisturization properties.

Ingredient - Chambor Silk Touch Lipstick

Staying Power: The SA claimed that these are long wearing but I’m not sure about how long wearing they are. I would guess upto 4 hours max since they are so creamy. I had a meal while I had it on and 2-3 hours later, it was still there. When they fade, they leave an even tint on the lips and don’t settle into fine lines after a long time. Don’t feather or bleed though cannot say for sure about the darker shades but it is always better to wear with lip liner.

Scent: The scent of these lipsticks reminds me of freshly baked cookies. It is not an overpowering scent but its not very mild either. People with sensitive olfactory senses who like their lipsticks  to be unscented might not like it.

Shade Selection: They have 18 shades covering browns, pinks, mauves and darker shades too (from website). Chambor lipsticks in general have shades that never look too garish or OTT. I think almost all shades would suit Indian skin tones well as most of them have a brownish or pinkish undertone.

About shade #670 ‘Silk Woods’ : It is a nude shade with an earthy pink undertone. Single swipe gives full pigmentation and coverage as you can see in the swatches below. This shade should suit most Indian skin tones upto maybe NC 42.  Duskier skin tones might find it a tad light for them. I find this to be the perfect nude shade for me( I am NC 37/40 in MAC )
