Skin Tone: Medium fair, warm undertones
Hello gorgeous ladies,
I had picked up the shades Beige Reveur, Café de flore and Cashmere Delicat from L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique lipstick range a few days ago. I was so much in love with the texture of these lipsticks that I decided to grab a few more shades, but this time, I turned my attention to bold shades rather than going for subtle pinks and n*des. Today’s review is all about the shade “Scarlet Déjà Vu.” Keep reading for more details about this product.
Enriched with nourishing oils, pure matte pigments, and hydrating honey, Rouge Magique dresses your lips with the most intense matte colors! The most intense color. The most comfortable matte. It’s magique, in a stroke.
My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique Lipstick 911 Scarlet Deja Vu:
Let’s begin with the packaging of this baby. L’Oreal Paris always come up with really interesting and attractive packaging. The lipstick comes in a gorgeous black and metallic pink packaging. The lipstick tube is matte black in color and has a beautiful metallic pink cap. This cap shuts very securely making a click sound and ensures that the lipstick packaging is purse friendly. The metallic pink packaging looks quite girly and attractive. The range name is printed with bright pink fonts on the black portion of the lipstick tube.
There is a color-coded sticker at the base of the tube, which bears the shade name and number. Since the packaging is opaque, I store these lipsticks upside down to easily spot the shade by checking the color-coded stickers. The lipstick has a normal twist-up mechanism which works pretty smoothly. The lipstick has a regular bullet shape which facilitates easy and smooth application. The lipstick bullet is quite firm and does not break or detach from the base. Overall, I love the packaging of these lipsticks.
Being a lipstick junkie, I get easily attracted towards new shades of lipsticks. “Scarlet Déjà vu” is a beautiful bright red shade with neutral undertones, which makes it a perfect shade for every skin tone. According to the brand, this shade is more flattering for fairer skin tones. This is a perfect statement red lipstick. The color is definitely bold and bright, it instantly brightens up the face. If you are looking for a true red lip color, this one is definitely worth adding into the collection.
Being a bold lip color, the shade cannot be worn on everyday basis, but this is a perfect party shade. The lipstick does not contain any sheen or shimmer. It sets to a soft velvety matte finish initially and later on it looks perfect matte on the lips. The formula is decently pigmented. One swipe gives semi-opaque coverage and covers the pigmentation of the lips upto a great extent. I apply two-three swipes to impart perfect and even color to the lips. The color spreads evenly on the lips and never gets patchy. There is no significant smell in this lipstick.
The texture of the lipstick is amazing. Most of the matte lipsticks are drying or they crack after some time, but the formula of this lipstick is buttery smooth. It goes pretty smoothly on the lips without causing any dragging. The texture is soft and buttery smooth. Since it is a matte lip color, it has a tendency to cling to the dry patches of the lips, which is seen in almost every matte lip color, so prior exfoliation and moisturization of the lips well is mandatory.
It is so lightweight and feels super comfortable on the lips. It does not have a thick and heavy texture. The lipstick is very moisturizing and nourishing. It is non-drying matte lipstick. It keeps my lips hydrated all the time. It looks lovely on the lips and never gets patchy. The color stays at place and does not budge even after meals. It does not settle into the fine lines of the lips & looks smooth on the lips.
The lipstick lasts for approximately 6-7 hours on my lips with a little fading. It survives light meals but does not survive a heavy meals and it fades from the center of the lips. The lipstick is easy to remove and does not stain the lips.
