L’Oreal Color Riche Pure Reds Star Collection Lipsticks come in a black plastic case each having the signature of shade’s ambassador in gold. Because the lipstick has a plastic packaging, it is fragile and definitely needs to be handled carefully. The good part is that it has a colored block at the front to display the shade of the lipstick which makes it very easy to locate a particular shade. I find the packaging an absolute stunner.
Red lips look hot and I have been literally trying my hands on all possible red lipsticks, to quote it right I’d rather say ‘EXPERIMENTING’. With so much of raving about Loreal ‘Pure reds’ range , I could not stop myself but get one and amongst 7 enthralling shades of RED, what caught my attention was ‘Pure Rouge’.
Pure Rouge is a classy deep red shade with cool undertone. The color isn’t too flashy or dull and imparts an instant glow to the entire face so it should suit majority of Indian women. Texture is creamy and it sets to a semi-matte finish within minutes, making it a comfortable wear without giving dry/flat appearance. It adds bit of shine that reflects the light giving an appearance of fuller lips. I also find it quite moisturizing ( could be because of jojoba oil present in it ) so I don’t really feel the need to pile on lip balm underneath but if you have extremely dry lips, you might not want to skip this step along with proper exfoliation ofcourse. With one stroke you get a high dose of pigment on your lips so you might not need layering it multiple times however to get a completely opaque coverage just two swipes would do ( Girls with pigmented lips are going to love it ). It doesn’t have any noticeable scent which is a plus. Since it is a dark color, I prefer lining my lips with the help of a brush prior to application. I haven’t noticed any feathering or bleeding of color which is a common thing with deeper colors like this. It lasts on the lips for 5-6 hours with meals leaving behind an even stain. It doesn’t settle into the lines but I have observed it getting transferred a little ( Not a lot ) which can be reduced to negligible if you blot it once with a tissue paper once or set it with a compact powder.
Overall, it is an amazing lipstick with a wonderful formula. You definitely gotta have atleast your one Perfect Red from the L’Oreal Color Riche Pure Reds Star Collection. These would look great when you are out for a party or attending a special occasion. And if you are in a doubt on which color to pick .. shut your eyes and get Pure Rouge- a color that should suit any and every Indian girl ..Not just Indian but any ethnicity
I Love it. No Kidding ladies .. Do not miss it by any chance It is definitely a little pricey but its worth it. You just need this one lipstick in your bag and you are good to go.
