Deborah Milano Shine Creator Lipstick No 8 (Rs 625)
As per Deborah Milano
With its multi-performance formula, the new Shine Creator Lipstick brings together three proven properties: the shine of a lip gloss, the comfort of a lipstick and the hydration and protection of a lip balm.
Pomegranate oil is a bountiful source of anti-oxidants and Omega-5 fatty acids that counteract the harmful effects of free radicals, nourishing and protecting lips from the environmental aggressors, while Vitamins A and E have moisturising and soothing properties.

I like the packaging. Its different and reminds me of L’Oreal Color Riche Nutri shine lipstick packagings. Though this one feels bulky.
Shade – No 8 is a beautiful fuchsia color. I couldn’t spot any shimmer or glitter there, thats a plus for me. Texture & Formula – I agree with Deborah Milano word by word. It has a gloss like finish, comfort of a lipstick and hydration of lip balm. I can feel the formula similar to Revlon Lip Butters, though this one doesn’t bleed or melt in the case/ tube. Formula is sheer but buildable. 08 can hide any lip discolouration or pigmentation pretty well.
If you are new to such bright shades then I would suggest you to start from this lipstick, since the formula tones down the intensity of the color. Yes you can build up the opacity once you get comfortable wearing it. I love wearing it as a stain (Single swipe) most of the times.Pigmentation – No 8 is decently pigmented, due to its sheer texture it doesn’t show up that well on hand swatch but on lips it looks full coverage/ opaque lip color.
Staying Power – This is the area where such lustrous lipsticks fall behind. 08 stays on for 3+ hours without meals. It completely vanishes after heavy meal, but leaves a soft stain behind.
That’s how it looks on me
Lovesick has purple shimmers otherwise it would have looked identical to No 08.
Price – Rs 625 tag is bit high in my opinion. Though I didn’t mind spending it on such a pretty shade. But yes this can be a con for lots of buyers.
Staying power – I had expected it to stay on for at least 4-5 hours.
A blessing for dry lips as the formula feels really hydrating and doesn’t leave lips flaky when wears off. It has buttery smooth texture and glides on lips smoothly. Though a better staying power would have made it a winner.
