I am a newcomer on IMBB, actually have been a reader for more than 4 months now and I have been more than benefited by all your reviews here that I am not able to get anything wholeheartedly without an IMBB review now!! So, after a lot of thinking, I thought to share a review with you all, now enough of my bak bak I guess 😛 Today, I am going to share my experience with L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick in Touch of Amarnath.
17.90 SGD in Singapore for 3.9 gm. I don’t know how much it is in India.
My Experience with L’Oreal Color Riche Intense Lip Color – Touch of Amaranth :
I went to the shop with a clear resolve to pick one bright pink lipstick as I am an ardent lover of bright colors and I lacked “the pink” in my vanity. Then, I had a choice between a glossy Revlon lipstick of the same shade (don’t remember its name) and this lovely matte pink lipstick. I picked this one as I love matte and felt that it would stay longer than a glossy one, and I was right!
L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in Touch of Amarnath is a gorgeous deep and bright pink and that is all I needed to be impressed !! ;-P The packing is classy and attractive. The lipstick is creamy to apply, but can get streaky.So, I would suggest to use a lip brush for application. It actually doesn’t moisturize the lips but only dries it and hence it would be better to top it up with a gloss or lip balm.
Staying power is awesome, stays up to 6-7 hours. It leaves a stain behind and I don’t think it’s hard to guess taking a look at the color!
Top most is just single swipe which in itself is enough. Bottom one is multiple swipes.
Pros of L’Oreal Color Riche Intense Lip Color – Touch of Amaranth :
- Gorgeous color.
- Packaging is attractive and the lid closes with a click sound ensuring that it would not open up.
- Creamy in texture when applied.
- Pigmentation is as intense as seen in the bullet.
- Staying power is awesome.
- Opaque color and hence pigmented lips can also sport this well.
Cons of L’Oreal Color Riche Intense Lip Color – Touch of Amaranth :
- Availability in India (not sure, sorry!)
- Slightly expensive.
- Application is streaky when applied directly.
- Dries the lips and settles in fine lines (using a gloss or balm on top solves the problem).
- Leaves a stain behind (this is a con for those who don’t like the stain, I actually like it).
I would rate this 4/5, one mark reduced for drying the lips, streaky application and availability.
Dusky beauties, I think it won’t suit you as much. I would recommend this lipstick for sure if you really want to have a beautiful matte “The Pink” in your vanity and it won’t bother you to use a gloss or a balm along to avoid dry lips.
