See it Through my Eyes

This beauty comes encased in a sexy black plastic lipstick case. The range name and celebrity endorsee’s autograph is printed in Gold color. The cap shuts perfectly with a click, making it great for travel. The color coded button in the middle of the lipstick case is a great way to add some color and identification.

The lipstick looks solid and intense in the bullet. I feel like preserving it. The texture is creamy and glides with great ease. On application it appears super matte and gorgeous. The lips don’t feel dry or uncomfortable. After say 15 minutes it sets on the lips perfectly and I reapply it and dab it with a tissue. to get a super matte and long lasting look, I place the tissue on the lips and powder with a brush over the tissue. I hope you understand what I mean. Result, Mac Ruby Woo. No am not kidding.

This red shade from the range is the true form of red. No undertones, just red.  The name matches the realty to the core, its Pure Rouge, meanig Pure Red. The beauty of this shade is, it will compliment all Indian skin tones. It will look gorgeous on fair skin tones, as well as dusky complexion equally well. Well Freida Pinto looks gorgeous in this shade and it compliments her dusky skin tone like meant for her.

LOreal Paris Star Reds Collection Pure Rouge: Best Red Lipstick in India

The pigmentation is to die for. The color is so rich and intense, that one swipe is enough to get a true color and full coverage. This time no one will be complaining with the color pay off. This shade hits the bull’s eye. However, if you prefer to be double sure a second coat is suggested.

Staying Power
The staying power is another plus point of this range. It stays as it is for hours without any meals. With heavy meals it can fade from the center, but doesn’t go away. Light meals and snacking is a breeze for this, it remains untouched. It stays on the lips for 6 hours and more.  Beautiful formulation I must say.

What I like about L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Collection Pure Reds Lipstick Pure Rouge:

  • The classic black body with a color coded button.
  • Travel friendly packaging as the cap clicks and shuts.
  • The shade is a close dupe of the much raved about Mac Ruby Woo.
  • The pigmentation is amazing; just one swipe can cover pigmented lips too.

  • The texture is matte, yet smooth to apply.
  • No irritating smell.
  • Its available online and in counters.
  • Minimal transfer after setting.

What I don't like about L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Collection Pure Reds Lipstick Pure Rouge:

  • The price.
  • Lips must be scrubbed well to give a smooth look.
