Price: 220 INR (I got this in an offer of buy 2 get 1 free around Sept-Oct 2011)
Net wt: 4.2 g
Shade Name: 51 Chestnut Glaze
The texture of the lipstick is smooth and moisturizing. It glides well on lips and does not settle into fine lines. I once applied it without using lip balm underneath and it works great without drying my lips. It contains fine and subtle shimmers which are not OTT.
It has faint scent which you can hardly smell.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is quite low. I need 4-5 swipes to get the actual color on my lips.
The staying power is pretty long lasting. It lasts for about 3-4 hours (with eating/ drinking) after which it starts fading away with a hint of color.
It comes in a dark purple, sturdy plastic case. The bottom of the lipstick case shows the name and number of the shade.
My Take on Street Wear Satin Smooth Lipcolor:
I love this shade. Chestnut Glaze is a soft brown shade with a hint of gold in it. This shade can work for both day and night look and I think it would compliment all skin tones very well.
The lipstick is smooth and soft to apply and doesn’t settle into fine lines. It feels very light on my lips. It is very moisturizing and I hardly need lip balm underneath it but if you have dry lips I think it would be better to wear a lip balm. It contains fine shimmers which are not gritty at all and gives satiny finish to my lips. The shade is so pretty that it instantly brightens up my face.
The pigmentation is quite poor. To get the actual color I need to swipe it 4-5 times on my lips. But the staying power is awesome. It stays put on my lips for 3-4 hours with a meal without any touch ups. It doesn’t bleed even if I topped it with gloss.

I would definitely recommend it to beauties who are more in brown shades.
