Khuraira Lipstick in Lady Obama

A couple months ago I received some sample products from Khuraira. I also got a lipstick which I’ll be reviewing today.

The color Lady Obama (nice name!) is a colour which I normally wouldn’t wear. But the colour is gorgeous and while it might look too mature at times, you need to find the right amount and occasion to pull it off!

It’s a coppery brown in a frosty metallic finish. That describes it to the T. It has a lot of minute gold shimmer but it gives a very foil like finish.

It’s very pigmented. With one swipe you get about medium coverage  and you need 2-3 more to get that foil like look. It glides easily but if you have dry lips, it will be difficult to apply. The lipstick feels very hard and not really creamy.

What i don’t like about this is the scent. It’s that plastic chemical old lipstick type of smell which is very strong. I can live with it but if you have problems with it than I wouldn’t recommend the lipstick. I can’t be certain if it’s only for the frosty ones or all finishes.

This wore really well for 6+ hours. There was no smudging and also survived a meal with a bit of fading.

The packaging is a matte metallic red casing. I think it’s a bit filmsy and wobbly; I wouldn’t carry it while travelling. For $20 I expected better.

    I’m not loving this shade, but like that it lasted over 6 hours. Going to have to see what other options they have!

      Frost + shimmer + brown = the most unique shade I own. Still, this wears really well and apart from the smell these lipsticks seem good quality wise.
