FIRSTLY, I did not buy this L’Oreal lipstick am reviewing today now i brought this about 2.5 years ago as later I came to know they test on animals I stopped buying loreal.even the shampoos and hair dyes.
I made my mum from L’Oreal and just went off L’Oreal but I have about 5-6 L’Oreal products which I have brought earlier and am on to finishing those.
According to their website these are the brands they own or have share with:
- L’Oreal Paris
- Maybelline NY
- Shu umera
- art of hair
- Ysl beaute
- Shu umera
- Victor and rolf
- Maison martin margiela
- L’Oreal professional
- Keraskin esthetics
- Giorgio Armani
- Ralph Lauren
- La roche posay
So I cannot really say if their animal testing and other blames of racism about which I have read on wiki are valid to all these brands because some of these are not cosmetic brands.

About the lipstick: These are limited edition lipsticks “inspired” by stars. There are five different shades with matching liners. The lipstick comes in a chic, shiny black tube with gold accents and is “signed” by the woman whom it’s named for.
Here you can see it on the India website for L’Oreal.
I chose “Aishwarya’s Beige” because it seemed the most neutral, and I was shopping for a nude colour at the time. And I happened to see this lying in the L’Oreal section in Wal-Mart and as compared to the other star secret lipsticks ashwariya’s column was full. No one had brought any lipstick with her shade and I would confess and say being an Indian student in America I was bound to pick at least one up as I did not like the rack full while rest KNOWN celebrities lipsticks had been brought. That was my sole reason apart from the nude lip research that made me pick this up. It’s a nice colour, seems like it would work for most skin tones. It has a slight shimmer and makes my lips look moist and plump.
I have attached 2 pictures of ashwariya rai along with the lipstick pictures where she is wearing this colour (at least it seems like she is).so you can predict what her own colour looks like on her.
I’ve used Color Riche in the past and it seems they’ve improved the formula. It doesn’t dry out and has good staying power. It’s enriched with Omega-3 and Vitamin E so it’s good for your lips. It has the same sort of scent it did years ago– sort of a cosmetic-y, powdery smell that I could do without.
- Very neutral very nude most skin types colour
- Limited addition
- Great moisture content.
- Many of my Caucasian skin tone friends love this lipstick as it is their perfect nude.i.e their lips but better colour.
- Widely available, when it was launched all over the world I think it was available in India as well.
- Shiny, very sheer mauve-beige lipstick toned down my darker top lip and made both my lips look alike without the added heaviness of a lipstick
- I personally did not expect much out of either the L’Oreal lipsticks or ashwariyas colour. Not me.
- Some of my friends have actually gone ahead and stocked this one for the fear of this getting over.yes,they are so much in love with this one.
- Pretty packaging. Classy black.
For me it’s more bad than good. As I said, I picked it up only for the heck of it.
- It makes me look dirty. Like dirty lips. No perfect nudeness and no great colour.
- Not much sheen even though after a number of times of applying, it doesn’t pay off
- The only way I like to wear this is under a glam shine lip-gloss in nude
- It does not suit my skin tone and makes me look temporarily dead
- It fades off quickly
- My lips are pigmented and they need an evening out effect this does nothing to help.
- Maybe this would be a great colour for pink/peach even coloured lips.
- I loathe the smell.
- I use Estee Lauder Sugar Honey Lipstick as well and that is also nudish but with a golden shimmer in it.I like that better.
- It is loreal, my heart aches when I look at it now.
- I am not buying this again need a stronger nude than this

Check this PETA webiste to see which companies test on animals and which don’t!!
BTW seriously what does it mean when they say “tested on animals??”
I still didnt understand 🙁
check the above link…the PETA webiste explains everything !!
Right now, millions of mice, rats, rabbits, primates, cats, dogs, and other animals are locked inside cold, barren cages in laboratories across the country. They languish in pain, ache with loneliness and long to roam free and use their minds.
Instead, all they can do is sit and wait in fear of the next terrifying and painful procedure that will be performed on them. The stress, sterility and boredom causes some animals to develop neurotic behaviors such incessantly spinning in circles, rocking back and forth and even pulling out their own hair and biting their own skin. They shake and cower in fear whenever someone walks past their cages and their blood pressure spikes drastically. After enduring lives of pain, loneliness and terror, almost all of them will be killed.
More than 100 million animals every year suffer and die in cruel chemical, drug, food and cosmetic tests, biology lessons, medical training exercises, and curiosity-driven medical experiments. Exact numbers aren’t available because mice, rats, birds and cold-blooded animals—who make up more than 95 percent of animals used in experiments—are not covered by even the minimal protections of the Animal Welfare Act and therefore go uncounted. To test cosmetics, household cleaners, and other consumer products, hundreds of thousands of animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year by cruel corporations. Mice and rats are forced to inhale toxic fumes, dogs are force-fed pesticides, and rabbits have corrosive chemicals rubbed onto their skin and eyes. Many of these tests are not even required by law, and they often produce inaccurate or misleading results; even if a product harms animals, it can still be marketed to you. Cruel and deadly toxicity tests are also conducted as part of massive regulatory testing programs that are often funded by U.S. taxpayers’ money. The Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Toxicology Program, and the Department of Agriculture are just a few of the government agencies that subject animals to painful and crude tests.
The federal government and many health charities waste precious dollars from taxpayers and generous donors on cruel and misleading animal experiments at universities and private laboratories instead of spending them on promising clinical, in vitro and epidemiological studies that are actually relevant to humans.
Millions of animals also suffer and die for classroom biology experiments and dissections, even though modern alternatives have repeatedly been shown to teach students better, save teachers time and save schools money.
Each of us can help save animals from suffering and death in experiments by demanding that our alma maters stop experimenting on animals, by buying cruelty-free products, by donating only to charities that don’t experiment on animals, by requesting alternatives to animal dissection and by demanding the immediate implementation of humane, effective non-animal tests by government agencies and corporations.
hello ladies i was off for 2 days.i do not remeber exactly how much it was but am very sure it was between 6-10 dollars.
shannai thx for the info.i went through peta too :tongue:
oh i see 🙂
HOW CRUEL :reallypissed: :reallypissed: :reallypissed: :reallypissed: :reallypissed: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:
Even though no law in any country requires cosmetics or personal-care products to be tested on animals, many companies around the world choose to subject animals to painful tests in which substances are dripped into their eyes, smeared on their skin, sprayed in their faces or forced down their throats. Two of the most common animal tests are eye irritancy and lethal dose tests.
In eye irritancy tests, chemicals are dripped into the eyes of albino rabbits, who have no tear ducts, which makes them unable to cry to wash away the toxic chemicals. The animals are usually immobilised in stocks, and only their heads protrude. Their eyelids are held open with clips. After placing the chemicals in the rabbits’ eyes, laboratory technicians record the damage to the eye tissue, which can include inflamed irises, ulceration, bleeding, massive deterioration and blindness. Often, the rabbits receive no anaesthesia during the tests. Many rabbits break their backs as they struggle to escape the pain.
In acute toxicity tests, increasing amounts of detergent, eyeshadow and other products are force-fed to rats, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs and other animals until a certain percentage of them are poisoned to death. The infamous Lethal Dose50 (LD50) test is the most common form of animal-poisoning study. It is used to determine what concentration of a substance is needed to kill 50 per cent of a group of animals.
Animals who receive the highest doses endure severe abdominal pain, diarrhoea, convulsions, seizures, paralysis and bleeding from the nose, mouth and genitals before they finally die. PETA has video footage of rabbits whose tender skin has been eaten away by corrosive substances, rats in death throes after huge amounts of soaps have been pumped into their stomachs and dogs who cower alone in box-like cages.
These extremely cruel tests often produce inaccurate or misleading results. The scoring of eye damage in irritancy tests is highly subjective. Different laboratories – and even different tests within the same laboratory – often yield different results. Plus, rabbits’ eyes are anatomically and physiologically different from humans’ eyes and tend to react more strongly to chemicals.
Like eye irritancy tests, lethal dose tests are unreliable and have too many variables to give accurate results. One international study, which examined the results of rat and mouse LD50 tests for 50 chemicals, found that these tests were able to predict toxicity in humans with only 65 per cent accuracy.
So why test on animals? Some critics have maintained that data from animal testing are only used to defend companies against consumer lawsuits, which leaves consumers vulnerable to unsafe products marketed by unscrupulous, greedy companies.
