I am so excited while writing this review as it is about a new lip color range launch in India. In the past, L’oreal has come up with Collection Exclusive Pure Reds and Nudes and this time it is Pinks. And what shades of pink! I bought three shades, Eva’s, Blake’s, and Aishwarya’s, from this range, and shade “Katrina’s” from the Star Collection, which is a crème lip color range. In India, they are launched under the range La Vie En Rose Moist Mattes. I can never have enough pinks!
Price: Rs 995
Dress your lips with delicate shades of pink. Our most sophisticated pink lipsticks in a velvet matte finish. Tailored for every woman. Our Velvet Pink lipsticks have never been more sophisticated.
Pure pink pearls mixed with velvet pigments create a perfectly sheer powdery matte finish.
Precisely composed by our colour designer Eva Yean, each shade was inspired by one our beautiful spokesmodels, to offer a subtle and delicate match for every woman.
Eva’s Pink – A peach pink lipstick with a slight yellow pigment. It complements skin with warm undertones, giving the appearance of a brighter complexion.
My Take on L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pinks – Eva’s Pink:
Let’s start with the first look. The lipstick comes in black-gold supermatte packaging, which looks luxuriously gorgeous. The cap closes with a tight click, so don’t worry about any lip color mess in your bag!
Coming to the colors in the range, think about all the different shades of rose that you see at a florist’s! You’ll find one lipstick shade for every color.
Eva’s is described as a pink meant for warm undertones. In the bullet it looks a tad darker than what you see on lips. I think this is with all the shades of this range. When I first apply it, it looks a little streaky (may be because of my slightly pigmented lips). The color is not opaque in the first swipe, if that’s what you are expecting. But you can build up the color as per your wish. And it looks beauuuutiful! I think we all are always looking for that “mera wala” shade, and when someone in a café actually stops you and ask you about the lip color, you know that the color is made for you! It’s such a lovely delicate petal pink. It instantly brightens up the face and gives you that lit-from-within warm glow :). I think this is going to suit medium to fair skin tones really well.
The texture is truly velvety matte. There is absolutely no tugging or pulling as the lipstick glides on your lips effortlessly. Your experience may vary with the condition of your lips. I mean it may cling to the dry patches like any other matte lipstick, so prepping your lips is a must. At the same time, it is not completely matte like your moist mattes. Like I said earlier, pigmentation is not opaque but then they are not marketed as bold mattes.
At this price, staying power could have been better. The color transfers easily but I am not complaining as I am so much in love with it, so I use the blotting and reapplying method to get the maximum out of this lipstick. A light meal takes away the subtle glossiness of the color. But the beautiful pink stain stays on your lips for the whole day. I once applied the color at 3 pm and I could still see the color on lips at 10 pm after a day full of eating and running around!
The shades can confuse you as different shades are released in different regions of the world. I was looking for JLo’s pink but couldn’t find one. Possibly all will be available after some time.

IMBB Rating: 4.7/5
Would I Recommend L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pinks – Eva’s Pink?
I highly, highly, highly recommend this range! If not this color, then at least some other shade, but you must pick one. There’s a pink for everyone and I am sure you’ll get one that complements your skin tone the best.
