L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Pure Red Lipstick – Pure Garnet
I am sure all of you must be hit the latest buzz in the makeup world are these newly launched Star Pure Reds Lipstick collection by L’Oreal Paris. The collection is full of reds and everyone could easily find a lipstick that looks flattering on her. I have enough red lipsticks with me to last this life time but still my heart start panting heavily whenever I cross a pretty red lipstick.
I kept convincing myself that I have enough reds with me but you know.. how this Makeup Magic works.. It overpowers your sense and ability to think and resist!! You have no option but to bow down before the urge of “buying just this one” and that’s what happened when I saw these beauties from L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Reds Collection.
I wasn’t yet over the last Lipstick collection from L’Oreal the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lipstick from which I have Ravishing Red shade and if that wasn’t enough L’Oreal came up with this all red collection to sweep you off your feet. I got to try this deep wine red from the collection sported by the style Icon “Sonam Kapoor”, L’oreal Paris Color Riche Star Pure Red Lipstick – Pure Garnet

Packaging: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Red lipstick comes in a classy all black glossy packaging, similar to the L’Oreal Color Riche Collection launched during Cannes 2014 but with gold replacing the black. There is a Shade button on the tube which will help you identify the shade on the go. Also, the lipstick packaging carries the signature of the star endorsing the lipstick, which in my case is Sonam Kapoor.
My Experience with L’oreal Paris Color Riche Star Pure Red Lipstick – Pure Garnet:
Shade: Pure Garnet is a deep Berry Red shade with subtle plum undertones. It can be termed as a perfect Wine red shade for Indian skin tones. I was scared to look at it in the bullet but it came up beautifully on the lips, absolutely perfect for winters. The lip color made me feel like diva instantly 😉 . The shade would work for all skin tones but you have to be sure that you need such rich wine red on your lips.
Formula: L’oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Mat lipstick has a super smooth texture which is very unlikely for a matte lipstick. I wouldn’t call it creamy but it is extremely light weight and glides on easily across lips with barely any tugging or pulling. I love that this doesn’t settle in fine lines or catches lip imperfections unlike other Matte lipstick formula which embarrasses my lips like anything. I can skip on exfoliating and prepping my lips before application and it still gives a smooth even application. The formula is not hydrating but it wasn’t drying either, which made it comfortable to wear throughout the day.
Pigmentation: Pure Garnet has a super rich pigmented formula which delivers intense color in a single swipe. The coverage is absolutely opaque and hides all the lip pigmentation under its color. The bullet gives an even application but I would suggest using a lip liner to define lips before-hand for a clean and precise application.
Finish: There is barely there sheen when it is freshly applied but wait for few minutes to let the color settle on lips and enjoy that perfect matte finish. It can also be patted with tissue for a flat matte finish instantly.
Staying Power: This is another department where the lipstick outshines its counterparts. The brand claims for 6 hours of stay but I have worn it for around 12 hours (9 am to 9 pm) and it was very much there on lips (more than 80%) even with lots of munching during the day. The color itself refuses to leave the lips easily and for the rest we have a super staining formula which will need a good makeup remover to take it off the lips.
