Sometime ago, L'Oreal Paris had come up with a few lines of lipcolors which Include their Rouge Caresse Lipstick which I love, Rouge Caresse Gloss ( needs reviewing), Moist matte Lipsticks and their last in the lipcolor line was the L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Pure Reds Star Collection which includes 7 shades of reds to flatter every skin tone. I love wearing red colors as most of you know. But, I usually wear the brightests whcih could stop the traffic! Dark tones are not really what I wore.

This time I was being sent L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Pure Reds Pure Garnet which is a dark garnet color. In case you are wondering, in other words I would describe it
as a deep, maroonish berry color with visible pink-berry hue. Honestly, I was not comfortable with wearing it. BUT, recently, I started being brave and guess what? Every time I wore it, I got so many compliments!

Each shade has been assigned to a star and mine is supposed to be Sonam Kapoor's inspiration. Well, it does look gorgeous on Sonam and on me? It looks gorgeous as well! LOL.

Texture and Pigmentation and other good things:

The texture, as they say, is moist matte. it is not 'creamy', but velvety which does not dehydrate or settle in your fine lines. Neither goes it dry out the lips or look tacky in case your lips are already dry.

In terms of pigmentation, a single swipe delivers good color. But, I don't think I can get my application perfect in single application! With colors like this, you need to be extra careful with the rim of your lips.

The lipstick does not bleed at all. Since it goes nowhere, I don't need a lip liner with it. So, one lipstick is all I would need.

The staying power with this one is amazing. I can't speak for the other colors, but this one stays for at least 6 hours and even if it fades or dries out, it does not affect the intensity much. It very much remains there and that too evenly. I don't know about the other colors, but this color is a long-wearing one.

Downside?

The price is hefty! It comes for 995 INR or to round off, 1000 INR ( US$18 approx.)

Verdict: I kid you not. You know I do not recommend pricey products or else, I keep complaining about the price. This Lipstick lives up to the price even though I could not less wish that it were more affordable, so that, at least, I could collect a few more colors, especially, reds are my colors.

Pure Garnet was not the color I was comfortable with. But, ever since I started turning in its direction, I know there's no looking back!

Recommendation: Why spend your money on high-end products? Try these lipsticks. You would not regret.

In case you are wondering how you would pair up with your eyes, hold on. I have makeup looks I plan to post SOON.

Until then,

Bises!
