My Experience With L'Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Star Collection Pure Vermeil Lipstick :
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a regular twist-up case. It is all black casing with a beautiful color coded block in the centre to help identify the color. It has the brand ambassador's (Fan Bingbing) signature as well. To be honest, the lipstick looks quite sleek and luxurious. There are certain things which look expensive and high end just by their packaging. This is one of them.
Shade: The shade Pure Vermeil is a beautiful pinkish red shade. It is not deep red or blood red so it will look flattering on fair to medium skin tones. It looks beautiful in day time because it is not bold or overpowering. And for night parties, of course, you can apply it. I am a sucker for red hue lipsticks because it shifts all the focus on the color. This lipstick doesn't have any shimmer. It has a sweet fragrance which vanishes in seconds.
Texture: The texture is what I adore the most. Personally, I am not a fan of matte lipsticks because I suffer from dry lips and I don't want to accentuate the dryness by applying a matte lipstick. But I am so amazed by the formula of this lipstick. It is super moisturizing and glides smoothly on the lips. It glides like velvet, gives you that glossy shine and then settles into semi-matte finish within 5-10 minutes without making the lips dry or flaky. I have to say, the claims are so true and so relatable.
Pigmentation: The color is very pigmented. In just one stroke, you get the beautiful opaque color. To build the intensity, second layer will be perfect.
Staying Power: I would like to give full marks to this lipstick not because it lasts long but because it delivers what it says. It exactly stays put for 6 hours, that too in between meals. I wore it to a wedding and you know how it is in functions, you are just on eating spree, and let me tell you, it was all in place. It faded a little which is obvious but it didn't crease, or cause dryness. And even after fading, it leaves behind a beautiful tint, so you don't have to worry about touch-ups.
Pros Of L'Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Star Collection Pure Vermeil Lipstick:
- Kudos to staying power
- Comfortable to wear
- Smooth texture
- Transfer resistant once set
- Brightens up the face in an instant
- Pigmentation is superb
- Not at all drying on lips
- Doesn't accentuate fine lines
Cons Of L'Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Star Collection Pure Vermeil Lipstick:
Diva Likes Rating:
I simply love the lipstick. I love the fact that despite being matte, it doesn't suck all the moisture from my already dry lips. I never used to like matte lipsticks because we all know of their formula of getting dry and patchy after a few hours of application, but I am so glad that it is comfortable to wear and not drying. It is creamy yet matte (which is rare).
