A lipstick called Bengali ? It’s not often my (Bengali) culture or roots are evoked in the beauty world, so when that happens you can be damn sure I will buy it.
It’s beautiful to look at. A pretty solid base, nicely weighted but the cap is a bit plasticky. And you pay $90 for packaging alone!
Apart from the name what fascinates me is the colour. It’s what we (Indians) call ‘Rani Pink’.
This pink, I swear , is what most of my Bengali ‘aunties’ wore around Durga Puja. What I don’t understand is how did he know? How did Loubotin know this is the Pink the Bengali aunties so love ?
It’s a beautiful velvet matte, applies really well, not patchy atall. It’s not drying either and stays on for AGES !
Even after this oily, slurrpy Chinese Meal!
Is it comparable to MAC and Urban Decay ? Of course it is.
You don’t need to buy a Christian Louboutin lipstick!
Stick with MAC Urban Decay Loreal NYX and co.
I bought it only because of the name. BENGALI.
I am a proud Bengali and now I own a kick-ass looking lipstick.
