There are so many things which only the people born in 1990s get excited about. The internet is full of such posts: ‘Ten things only the people born in 1990s know’ or ’20 things you remember doing when you were a kid’. Well for me the cotton candy brings back the memories listed in such posts. Remember the cotton candy wale bhaiya came in the streets or even on the bustling roads. India Gate! How can I forget India Gate? It used to be full of balloon vendors and icecream vendors and cotton candy vendors. The soft, fluffy, melt-in-mouth pink sticky-sweet treat is something I love to eat even today. Speaking of cotton candy, this lipstick from L’Oreal totally reminds me of same. Only the color. I have not eaten it or anything ok? 😀
The pink cotton candy color, the soft buttery feel of this lipstick, the light-weightness- How can one NOT compare the two!
The packaging is sturdy, silver colored with transparent lid. It has a ‘Loreal Paris’ metallic embossing at the centre. It is similar to their Infallible range. The ends of the packaging are color coded.
Like I said the color reminds me of cotton candy. It is cool-toned pink with slight frosty finish. The texture is smooth, buttery, non tugging and glides easily on the lips. The pigmentation is semi sheer at one swipe but the color is buildable. It does not go fully opaque so it may show pigmentation on the lips. It has a slight silvery sheen which makes it a little frosty. I could not deduce the fragrance accurately. Actually it is very similar to Nutri choice 5 grain biscuits 😀
It stays for 3-4 hours including meal after which it leaves a pretty pink stain. As it is moisturizing and the color is light, I find myself reaching for this lipstick instead of lipbalm in these hot summer days. This a perfect color for daily wear especially for college crowd.
The color will suit fair skinned beauties no doubt, but it may look more ‘frosty’ on darker toned people.

Overall, this lipstick has a very pretty cotton-candy pink color. It is creamy and moisturizing. The color would look beautiful on fair to medium skin tone.
Overall Verdict: B+
Pssst: This lipstick can be doubled up as a light pink creamy blush 🙂
