OOOOOH…AAAAAH…
Take The World and PAINT IT RED
OOOOOH…AAAAAH…
PAINT IT RED !
That’s exactly what L'Oréal Paris recently did :)

L'Oréal Paris gave its loyal followers a very red new year gift in 2015. It was their  ColorRiche Star Collection range of Lipsticks consisting of 7 shades of Red endorsed by the 7 L`Oreal Paris brand ambassadors, each having chosen a different shade in the Red Collection! I consider myself fortunate to be so graciously sent one of the shades from this collection to try out and review .

L'Oréal Paris says :

Well, first of all, the lipstick arrived contained in a stunning looking luxurious golden makeup bag . This enhanced the pleasure of receiving the brand new lippie even more. And second of all, when I saw the lipstick shade, I was taken aback in the most joyous way at what a brilliantly gorgeous shade I had received.  Priced at 995/- INR for 4.2 gm. The price, you might think, is on the higher side but the quality and the experience of wearing this lipstick makes it totally worth it ! The L'Oréal Paris Collection Star is available at all L'Oréal Paris counters nationwide and popular online beauty portals in India.

The lipsticks are packaged in the classic rectangular shape in which most L`Oreal Paris lippies are packaged in. The design resembles the packaging of  L`Oreal Paris Moist Matte range which came out last year. The casing is of a glossy black color from the outside and shiny golden from inside in which the lipstick bullet is contained. The lipstick lid has a golden embossed signature of the diva endorsing that particular shade. I received the CSR7 PURE ROUGE lipstick which is endorsed by Freida Pinto.

When I looked at this color all that came to my mind were bright red spanish tomatoes and bright red mexican chillies… Pure Rouge is a sizzling hot red shade which can make any drab outfit look hot and any dull moment sizzle.

The lipstick glided onto my lips like I was applying a creamy lip balm. The feeling was almost similar to the feel of rose petals on your lips… Don`t tell me you don’t know what rose petals feel like when dragged on your lips? Have you never even done that in fun ? If you seriously don’t know that feeling… then you must go pluck or buy a rose from somewhere, and drag its petals on your face and lips to know what this lippie feels like :)

The pigmentation was intense in the first swipe itself. I however applied it a few times in the pics below. The look was very matte. The texture was creamy and the feel was feathery soft. The color was very long lasting… in my case the color lasted for about 6-7 hours while I had dinner in between too but the staying power was amazing. My lips felt smooth and hydrated. I didn’t experience any drying during wearing the lipstick or afterwards. The lipstick sort of filled the creases of my lips making my lips look more full and creaseless. A really appreciable quality is that when I removed the lipstick with a makeup remover after it had stayed on my lips for all those hours, it got removed completely and there was no staining of my lips. Considering the lipstick`s intense pigmentation and staying power, if there was no staining afterwards, then this to me is really remarkable!

Sparkly Golden Eyeshadow

Punjabi Style Head Braids / Plaits in the front
I received this lipstick on the joyous occasion of Lohri when I was in celebration mode. I decided to wear it with a bright red traditional Anarkali suit (blending my Lucknawi Nawabi style with my Punjabi roots). In Punjabi style, I plaited a few front strands of my hair and tucked the ends  of the plaits within the rest of my hair which I left loose. To accessorize my outfit, I wore golden hoops which had large golden beads and pearls. I wore a glittery bracelet with a double layer of rhinestones. My eye makeup was also subdued with just a hint of sparkly golden eyeshadow. I wanted my lipstick to stand out from my whole look and it did! I got so many compliments on my lipstick shade that night :)

I am wearing the Pure Rouge shade daily since the past 1 week. It’s a Red shade which suits any colored outfit perfectly. Be it green, yellow, white, black, purple or even pink. Its quickly become one of my go-to lippies for its mood enhancing and glamorizing-any- occassion ability. I highly highly highly recommend it !
