Jane Fonda, the veteran Hollywood actress last night clinched a six-figure deal to become the face of L’Oreal Paris anti-ageing treatment cream. She is the oldest so-called “spokesmodel” for the brand.
Once you see the pictures, you would say misnomer, eh? Its not at all beige in the terms Indian skin would define beige for their lips; at least I think beige for me is my very beloved L’Oreal Color Riche in Beige Creme (reviewed). If you take it from there and see this lipstick, its not a beige, its almost a concealer color and may be two tones lighter than the lightest concealer I would have ever used!
I don’t know how but I found one of these lipsticks in Health and Glow in EA mall here. L’Oreal Color Riche is supposedly enriched with a combination of omega-3 oils and vitamin E. These are really smooth lipsticks and at the same time I find them sturdy enough for my use as they don’t melt so soon or break at the base. I love the glamorous black casing with a shiny gold click lock and hear it click safely to my satisfaction.
These have a soft vanilla kind of smell to them and they have a tear-drop shape to them, which I do not really like as it is a pain to use a lipstick, which is not flat at the top. I prefer flat top lipsticks like Lakme Nine to Five and these look so gentle with that sweet smell and the drop-shaped bullet. My only problem with these lipsticks is that these do dent at the side in the container when not applied with a soft hand. I don’t like the smooth soft sides of the lipstick dented and making a mess at the rim sometimes, plus if I pay Rs. 720 for a lipstick, I would hate to see it break or damage.:(
About the Lipstick:
The lipstick itself is very smooth but not creamy and it would glide but not really melt on your lips. The color is very soft golden-y pink, almost like some pink concealer to me and it comes out more white on the lips than I thought. It looks very peach in the swatch, but in reality, it comes out pale white and washes my lips off literally. If I were to go for a nude lipstick, it would be really a tone or two darker than my skin and never ever some tones lighter than my skin as it would make me look dull. So, for me, its not a nude lipstick and I feel overall it is not a flattering color for Indian skin tones, which I think loves some color on the lips to brighten the face up.
This is a very pretty peachy shade with a very soft shimmer to it, but overall a crème lipstick and not really buttery soft. Application is smooth and lasts for two hours without meals. The lipstick is very soft, moisturising and comfortable to wear, but the color would just wash me out, it just looks too white on me:|
I use it with some darker colors to salvage them and this lipstick too. It can make darker brown lipsticks really soft and glamorous. So, in that respect, I love this lipstick and also for the pretty shade that it is; not for Indian skin tones unless you are really of peaches and crème complexion. I don’t recommend this color, but on the whole, L’Oreal Color Riche is a good lipstick to have for sure!
4 on 5 (not for the color but as a lipstick for what it is).
