Formula & Texture:
  • The lipstick has a moussy-texture
  • Creamy and soft consistency
  • Very lightweight formula
  • Decently pigmented.Needed two swipes to cover-up the pigmentation on the lips.
  • Dries down very quickly
  • Dries down to a matte-finish(99%)
  • The applicator is an almond shaped-flat foot applicator
  • It helps in lining-out the lips easily

Smells like cocoa.Very nice.I love it.It's very mild and goes away as the time passes.


Totally,the lipsticks in the Weightless Matte Mousse lip & cheek colour collection are worth a try.Formula is to die for.
  • Affordably priced
  • Very comfortable on lips
  • The lipstick makes the lips look full
  • Very lightweight. Doesn't feel like we have a lipstick on the lips!
  • Doesn't bleed
  • Doesn't feather or flake.But,please exfoliate your lips before applying any lipstick
  • After eating heavy meals ,we need to do a slight bit of touch-up.Reapplication of the product doesn't look gross at all
  • Doesn't transfer much until we eat anything oily/greasy.Not completely transfer-proof
  • Not smudge-proof
  • Water-resistant
  • Fades away evenly from the lips
  • Dries- out the lips a tad bit only after 3-4hours from the time we wear the lipstick
Lasted on my lips for 4-4.5 hours(max) and survived light meals
Fades away from the centre of the mouth after a heavy meal.

  • In first application(single scoop),the lipstick went a little streaky.After applying for the second time the product looked even on the lips.
  • Product is buildable though.But, product-pigmentation could have been better
  • Accentuates fine-lip lines and dry patches a little.
Overall,I love the formula of Cocoa Soft lipstick because it's very comfortable to wear.I am surely going to try out other shades from this range.There are awesome shades ranging from pinks to reds.Affordable and good quality lipsticks.I highly recommend this shade if you like wearing deep browns and also do check out the entire collection.There are awesome shades available indeed.Best,part is that the lipsticks in the Weightless Matte Mousse lip colour collection can be used as a blush. Isn't that great!

Will I re-purchase?
Yes,definitely , but,some other shade from the collection.

Rating : 3.5/5

Note Especially for people with dry-lips,do not forget to prep-up your lips before applying any lipstick!
