ModelCo Party Proof Cream Lipstick ‘After Hours’ Review

March 12th, 2014

Long lasting lipsticks are the flavour of the season! The reasoning behind it is simple – no one wants to spend a ridiculous amount of time reapplying make up. We, women, are more career oriented now, and with the hectic work schedule it is not quite possible to focus on just the looks. But, at the same time it is important to be presentable at all times. Now, who wants to make a business deal with someone who looks like they just got out of the bed!! I believe that if a person puts in an effort into how they present themselves, they can be well trusted to finish a job well.

So, when I got the opportunity to try the ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick, I was excited to see if it fit my bill.

Product specifics

The 3.8g cream lipstick comes in a clean white packaging with an in-built mirror. The colour I am reviewing is called ‘After Hours’ and is an orange-ish red. The lipstick has a sweet vanilla fragrance to it. The texture is creamy, and the same time gives a matte effect.

The Beauty Mantra opinion

The packaging of the ModelCo Party Proof Cream Lipstick is simple and clean. I was someone who thought that lipsticks that come with a mirror are just cheap looking. I always preferred one without the mirror. But, after using the ModelCo one, I realised how handy the mirror is. Especially, while on the go! The lipstick smells good too, and is not too overwhelming. The lid stays shut, and can be thrown into the handbag without a worry.

The Party Proof Cream Lipsticks are essentially cream lipsticks, but long lasting. The lipstick glides on easily, like any cream lipstick, but once applied it has a matte finish. The best thing about this one is that it does not dry the lips at all! It is a hybrid between the cream and matte formula. The pigmentation is good, and offers a good colour pay off. I observed no flakiness, and that’s a biggie for me. I hate it when long lasting formulas latch on to the dry patches on the lips and highlight them.

The only downside to the lipstick is that it doesn’t last all day. I have road tested it a few times, and found that it invariably wears out after eating meals.  Else, it stays for a good 4-5 hours. And that could be understood, as it is a cream lipstick and those formulas really can’t withstand greasy meals (hmm, does that indicate that I am into greasy stuff??! Totally!!) This particular shade works well with any skin tone, and brightens a work look.
