L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick in Blaze Of Red: Review, Swatches & FOTD

It has been almost a whole month since I last reviewed a lipstick on the blog so today is going a lipstick review day. Everything about the lipstick I am going to talk about today- The L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte can be best described as love at first sight. Want to know why…well read on πŸ™‚

Price: Rs 899 for 4.2 gms.
The first thing that caught my attention about this lipstick is the pretty rose gold color packaging. Everything about the packaging makes me go ga-ga, the color of the packaging, the little square shaped window kind a thing that shows you the shade of the lipstick and even the stylish β€œR” logo on the top of the cap.

The shade I picked up was Blaze of Red and it’s a beautiful maroonish red. It is definitely proving to be one of my favourite lipstick as we are moving towards the winters. Its one of those shades that work for you irrespective of your skin tone so don’t shy away from trying this one. 

I love how the shade instantly grabs all the attention so the trick to work with this is to keep everything else subtle and let the bold lips steal all the limelight. The only downside to this shade is that it ends up up making your teeth look a little yellow which is something you see happening quite often with reds.

In terms of texture as the name suggests, during application these lipsticks have feel really creamy and then settle into a matte finish after a few minutes. As the initial texture is pretty creamy, you don’t face any issues during application. Now the initial texture might tempt you into not applying moisturiser underneath but I would suggest you to make sure that you have prepped your lips by exfoliating them and then moisturising them with your favourite lip balm because when the lipstick settles into the matte finish, if you have dry lips then they will get accentuated.

The color payoff is amazing. One swipe and you are good to go, even if you have pigmented lips. Also, If you have made sure that your lips are well moisturised then it doesn’t settle into lip lines and no sign of any bleeding or any feathering πŸ™‚

Coming to the staying power, well it stays on for atleast 5-6 hours on the lips and survives my  zillion snacks and coffee breaks. It also leaves this very pretty and stubborn stain after fading. The stain refuses to budge until you remove it using a remover.

Here is how it looks on me

Overall, I absolutely really like this lipstick and absolutely love the shade.Its just perfect for the colder months ahead and I don’t think I found anything wrong with it and that’s kind of a first. Its a little expensive but I don’t mind paying extra money if the product is this good and I am planning to pick up some more shades so don’t forget to drop your suggestions in the comment section πŸ™‚
