Hello Lovely Beauties, Some time back, while browsing through various sites and after reading about the Color Riche Star Secrets Lipsticks by L’Oreal, I decided to give it a shot. I didn’t like the Aishwarya’s Amber at all, it was a very nude beige, too bland too and I felt, I would look sick if I wore it, huh!! and then I saw the 712 Milla Purple. It was the most gorgeous plum lipstick I had ever seen and once I swatched it at the L’Oreal counter, I instantly fell in love with the color. It was such a beautiful plumy pink that I just had to buy it.
What does L’Oreal say about Color Riche Star Secrets Lipsticks
Discover your signature shade. Inspired by our most beautiful female ambassadors, L’Oreal Paris presents the Color Riche Star Secrets collection. Each shade has been developed to embody the character and spirit of each model, using the expertise of international make-up artist James Kaliardos. By looking at their complexion, eye and hair colour, and understanding their unique personalities, James Kaliardos has developed these lipsticks in a palette of beautiful shades; whether it be Aishwarya Beige, Penelope Red or Eva Caramel, now you can discover the secret behind the stars!
Color Riche is enriched with a combination of Omega-3 oils and Vitamin E and helps to protect your lips from drying. It has a soft, creamy texture and it leaves lips feeling moisturized, smooth with a stunning finish.
There are 9 colors in this product line, most of which are available here in India, and are priced at INR 720, for 4.7 g. The color that I got, i.e., #712 is inspired by Milla Jovovich. This is a very beautiful deep plum color, and I believe would suit most Indian skin tones. It has a creamy finish with no shine or shimmer, just plain creamy and I love that and now, I’ll just quickly come over to the positives and negatives of this particular lip color.
Pros of L’Oreal Color Riche Star Secrets
1. This is a highly-pigmented lipstick. I generally don’t go for a second swipe, just one stroke is enough to leave a nice opaque color to the lips. If someone has very pigmented lips, a second coat should be sufficient.
2. A very beautiful color, one that would suit most Indian skin tones.
3. The lasting power is really high, 4-5 hours at least, and even after meals, it leaves a beautiful tint on the lips, which cannot be missed.
4. The fragrance, oh dear! , I absolutely adore the fragrance, a very sweet vanilla fragrance, and very noticeable.
5. The packaging is very classy, black cased with a golden top with the number written on top.
Cons of L’Oreal Color Riche Star Secrets
1. Some people may not like the strong smell.
2. It is pricey, as compared to Maybelline color sensational lip colors, which have more or less the same effect.
3. Color choices are limited.
4. Sometimes I avoid wearing this color while going out in the sun because I am afraid it might bleed since the texture is so creamy and also the lipstick might melt if exposed to the sun. Secondly, it looks quite bright in the sunlight, at least to me!
Other than the above-mentioned cons, I can’t think of any other cons. This is my most favorite lipstick as of now, and I adore it to the core. I wouldn’t repurchase this when it finishes off and that is only because I want to try out other colors:D
