Women and lip colors are inseparable. Most of us are ready to skip other cosmetics but cannot step outside without adding a hint of color to our lips. So, I keep exploring new and affordable makeup items that can make my lips look fantastic. This INCOLOR Cosmetics lipstick in Pecan is one of such budget buys I’ve been using lately. So, I thought of giving you some insight into what I knew about the products from this brand. Let’s get started.
About The Brand’ INCOLOR Cosmetics‘
INCOLOR Cosmetics is a new brand, and mostly we don’t find much information about it. I never saw this brand on counters, but it is available online. It is affordable and comes in a good range of colors. Before getting into the details of the review of the lipstick, let us have a look at the details of the brand itself (in its own words).

About INCOLOR Cosmetics Lipstick In Pecan
Now, it is time to look into the product. INCOLOR Cosmetics Lipstick is a regular lip makeup product available in the traditional ‘stick’ form. I collected the shade no. 804 called ‘Pecan’ and here are the details of it:
- Net Vol.: 3.8 gm.
- Price: Rs. 225
- Shelf Life: 3 years
- Availability: Mostly online
INCOLOR Cosmetics Lipstick does not mention ingredients on its packaging, which is certainly not expected. However, you might feel skeptical about using it as you do not know what you will put on your lips.
Like all other regular lipsticks, the INCOLOR Cosmetics lipstick in Pecan comes in a long, cylindrical case. The case is slim, and it fits in a small pouch easily. The case body is made of metal, so there is no way to see the shade of the lipstick from outside. The packaging has a deep maroon color with beautiful prints and its name embossed on it. The color of the case is the same for all the shades. The name and number of the shade are written at the bottom of the lipstick case.
What The Product Claims:
Before you go through my own experience with INCOLOR Cosmetics Lipstick in Pecan, take a look at what the product itself claims to offer to you:
- Spreads evenly on your lips
- Ensures the goodness of silk with a creamy texture
- It helps you sense the blissful softness on your lips
- Use to get soft and hydrated lips
- It gives a fine finish to your lips
What The Product Offers:
Here is what the INCOLOR Cosmetics Lipstick in Pecan has to offer. I’ve been using it consistently for the last few months, and I must say that I’m yet to fall in love with it. Here is why:
The color of the lipstick is ‘pecan’, which is a brownish maroon shade. Though it has a red undertone, that is not much visible. But surprisingly, the color comes out too pigmented, which I did not like much. It turned out too dark for my skin tone. However, I picked this color to try out something new. So that is fine. But as it comes in more shades, you can always choose the color that best suits your needs. It is a good choice for girls with a sensitive noses as it does not come with any uncomfortable smell.
The lipstick is not smooth at all. I was not too fond of its texture, even a single bit. While most lipsticks glide over the delicate skin of the lips effortlessly, it feels a bit rough and needs to be pressed over the lips. You must have super moisturized lips for using this lipstick smoothly. I need to slather the lip balm on my lips before using it every time. Conversely, the lipstick gives a matte look, which is fantastic. I think it might even look better if combined with other colors.
As per coverage, the lipstick is perfect. It comes with good pigmentation and has a darker shade; it colors the lip very nicely. In terms of staying power also, the lipstick qualified well. It stayed on me for 5 hours with a single swipe, which is impressive. If applied with double swipes, the color stays even longer. Though the staying power is not an issue, the lipstick tends to dry out my lips and settle in fine lines. Being a matte-finish product, it sometimes becomes more drying, giving awkward looks. So, I don’t prefer to wear this lipstick for an extended period.
Directions For Use:
Start applying from the center of the lips. Use a lip liner of the same color for a more defined look. Layer more for more coverage.
- Good pigmentation
- It doesn’t smell bad
- Gives good coverage
- Matte finish
- Great staying power
- Travel-friendly packaging
- It does not glide easily over lips
- Too drying
- Flakes a lot
- Settles in fine lines
- Too dark shade for my skin tone
- No mention of ingredients
This lipstick needs very moisturized lips. It’s affordable and gives a super matte finish. It would be best to be very careful about the shade you choose. You can give it a try once, or you can skip it. Nothing great about this product.
