Botanics Stay on Lipstick 421 and 419-Review,Photos,Swatches



Result: Ok, so my experiment is about testing out different shades of lipsticks to see the ones that suit me the best. I didn't jump into the "high end" band wagon because, I don't want to make a huge investment over something that is not for me at all. So, Botanics Stay on Lipsticks are great help at the moment. The first one is 421 and the second is 419.


Let's start with 421, which is a beautiful brick red semi matte color, suitable for medium skin tones. Red lipsticks kind of have scared me for life, until recently when I experimented with a red shadow (click here to find out), it actually looked nice. Since then, I have fallen in love with red lips and the sultriness they add to my personality. As for the 421, at applying it glides on nicely, without a patchy feel. It is very pigmented and moisturizes the lips as you wear it. The color has orange undertones, so it may seem different under certain lighting, but that's not an issue. It stays on for around 4 hours, which is not bad, and is very hard to wash off, trust me. So wear this shade, when you intend not to wipe it off at all and avoid wearing heavy eye makeup with this on.

Next is 419, which is a frosted pink, with shimmer, and will go with all skin tones. This is a close dupe of the Luscious Cosmetics Super Moisturizing Lipstick in Pink Sugar. They're not exactly the same as 419 is a little darker, but they're still close. 419 applies on rather fast and is creamier in texture. This one has a lesser lasting power, about 3 hours if you don't eat or drink something. 419 is a good day wear lipstick and girls who are not into darker shades are really going to like this.

The packaging quite represents the name, as the tube color is pretty organic, sand. They're not very fragrant, as I could only smell a light chemical that goes into lipsticks. They're light weight and produce amazing color on the lips. Both are dupes for famous branded lipsticks. 421 certainly is a MAC dupe. I'm looking for the specific color and will update the post as soon as I find the right shade. You can find Botanics Stay On Lipsticks in about 60 shades. Each tube contains 4 grams of the product.

Rating: 4/5




Price: Rs 190/-

Available at: You can find these at general cosmetics stores in Karachi and Sakrani's Super Store in Hyderabad.

Conclusion:  Botanics Stay On Lipsticks are very cheap when it comes to price, but I wouldn't say they are bad quality. For me, they are serving my purpose of purchase and I do like them. Recommended? Yes!

    1. I've never heard of animal ingredients usage in Boots products. Plus Boots is famous for using botanical and plant ingredients in its products.
