My Opinion:-
Everyone should have a couple of red lipsticks, specially for us Indians its a must. Its nearly winter and the festival season followed by the wedding season is here to stay for months. And then at the very right moment I got this lipstick named Red Rover from Lotus Herbals. They launched this shade in their newly launched Festive Glam Collection along with 4 other shades.



The packaging of this lipstick is classic red and gold and the fragrance is trademark Lotus Herbals fragrance. Its sleek enough to be carried in any purse and the red-gold combo inspires me to try a similar nailart if only someone tells me of a red that matches this lipstick's tube.



Red Rover is a versatile color for our festive occassions. Its a medium red with strong orange undertones and oodles of golden shimmer but shows up moderately on my lips. It is the kind of red which will definitely suit all Indian skin tones. This red is like the shade that the gypsys would love to wear. This shade is not very intense but it can be built up with a couple of swipes. I have worn it like a lip stain during the day and got a handful of compliments, all you need to do is just dab in on your lips and thats it.



For the night I apply it in 2 layers while setting in between with loose powder plus dabbing with a tissue. Also I feel that I dont really need extra gloss but that totally depends upon the wearer. You can top it up with clear gloss if you want and it looks very classy. This shade is so versatile that it goes well with my Indian traditional wear (lehenga, sari etc) and also does justice to my LBD. My friend suggested that wearing it with a white dress during the day will be a head turner look :P Well its not a everyday/office shade but its a perfect shade for me to enjoy my winter activities. This red is a must try for brides/to be.



The texture is similar to the older range of Moistpetal lipsticks. Its creamy and quite moisturising. Doesn't dry up my lips and also I can skip lip balm if I want to. It fades of evenly and leaves a slight stain on my lips. But the only problem with this lipstick, this shade in particular, is that when it fades only lots of shimmer is left behind dancing about on my lips, hence the name Red 'Rover' me thinks :P (Lame joke I know)



Pros:-
* Red Rover will suit most Indian skin tones
* Its the prettiest red I own, in fact the only other red I own is Avon Simply Pretty Cherry Red
* Lasts for upto 3 hours on my lips even after having light snacks
* Leaves behind a very light stain, doesn't leave my lips naked
* Light shade of red so It's good for girls who wants to try this color but are shy of using red

Cons:-
* The red could have been a little more intense (actually no cons )

I rate this Moistpetal Lipstick in Red Rover 4.5 out of 5. This lippie belongs to my fave Lotus Herbals Range of Moistpetals. This one is a must try for brides and girls to like to shiny away during the winter festivals/weddings etc. I would say that its a gem in my small (read growing) lipstick collection.
