So I got this lipstick a couple of months ago and after getting insane wear out of it, I can safely say that I like it. This is one lipstick that got me out of my comfort zone. I mean this is a shade that I usually see at the counter and go “WOW, I can never pull it off” or “Man, that is a bright shade”, but I never bought it. But this time the SA kept insisting that I try this shade just once and I finally gave in. Its a bright purply pink or pinky purple or both. I can’t put my finger on the exact colour but I love it and I obviously bought it. The word “retro” fits this lipstick perfectly. I remember my aunt owning and wearing this shade a lot when I was a younger.
A lipstick that delivers intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. Colour Riche Moisture Matte’s unique formula contains jojoba oil for unrivaled moisture and comfort along with matte gel technology to create an intense matte look.
Velvet matte gel technology is combined with deep pigments and Jojoba oil to give a deep colour pay-off, maintaining ultimate moisture and comfort.
The packaging: Rose Gold is so in these days and this lipstick comes in a gorgeous rose gold metallic body that looks luxurious in your hands. Its the kind of packaging that makes one proud to own this lipstick. I can honestly look at it for hours. The cap closes nice and tight and you’ll never have a lipstick disaster in your purse if you decide to carry it with you. I do have one complaint. My lipstick broke from the base, as in not the packaging but the lipstick itself. I have two of these – Glamour Fuchsia and Lincoln Rose and both are broken from the base.
The Product : The shade like I said is gorgeous. Its definitely not a subtle colour and bright enough to make heads turn, but only in admiration. The formula is good and the name says it all – Moisture Matte. Its a little confusing because from the pictures you can tell that the bullet looks absolutely matte but when you apply it to the lips, it goes on creamy. It’s a matte that doesn’t dry out the lips. I have dry chapped lips throughout the year and if I say the lipstick is not drying, its saying something. Having said that, I won’t say its moisturizing either. The lipstick goes on smooth and one swipe means opaque and two swipes mean intense colour. It goes on slightly creamy and takes a minute to settle to its original matte finish. It stays on for a good 5-6 hours, barely transfers and fades gracefully to a more pink less purple stain. Reapplication can be tricky. If you have dry lips after the first application, reapplication may get patchy.
Nailed it or failed it?
To sum it up, Loreal Moisture Matte in Glamour Fuchsia is a gorgeous pinky purple which does look glamourous. The colour may take some getting used to but it’ll pleasantly surprise you like it did me. It will flatter fair and medium skintones the most, although I have also seen dusky beauties rock this shade. Keeping the rest of the make-up minimal is the way to go with this lipstick.
