REVIEW: L'Oreal Moist Mat (Matte) Lipstick in Lincoln Rose


Review of L'Oreal Moist Mat (Matte) Lipstick in Lincoln Rose

The most talked about and perhaps the most sought after lipstick shade from L'Oreal's L'Ore Lumiere Cannes Film Festival 2014 collection is Lincoln Rose. And the whole hullabaloo was created by our erstwhile Miss World, Ashwarya Rai who looked ethereally beautiful in it...
So today ladies and gentlemen, I am taking this opportunity to review this gorgeous shade of Red that promises to suit all Indian skintones!

L'Oreal Moist Mat Lipstick in Lincoln Rose is a pinkish (almost scarlet) Red that would suit almost all Indian skintones. It isn't too bright, it isn't maroon-ish, it isn't neon-y, its just pure Red... The lipstick isn't overly glossy and neither is it too matte, it has the perfect sheen and the right amount of matte-ness...
The shade Lincoln Rose somehow reminds me of Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Hot Hot Hot.

Price of L'Oreal Moist Matte (Mat) Lipsticks

They cost a whopping INR 899/- for a tube

Texture wise L'Oreal Moist Matte (Mat) lipsticks are very light and even though have amazing pigmentation, they don't feel heavy on your lips. Even after multiple coats you rarely realise that you are actually wearing anything on your lips.

The lipsticks have an opaque finish, they are not sheer and have a pretty decent staying power. After about 5 hours they start to fade into an even stain that looks lovely and natural at the same time.

They however seem a little fragile cause my stick broke while I was swatching it for the first time. Am not sure if it was my piece or if the range is a little flimsy.

All in all a great product and a gorgeous shade.
Have you tried this shade?
Which is your favorite shade from this range?


  1. Its a gorgeous look beautiful.

  2. Gosh! This looks so gorgeous on you!
    But do you think it's better to drop a few more bucks and splurge on a MAC lipstick?
    Because damn! It's a pretty colour but 900 bucks? *sigh*

  3. Strange that my lipstick broke too, that too within a week of buying it and having kept it in my bag. Maybe it's because of the weather, but anyway its a beautiful shade and I loved it too :)


  4. Pretty shade and looks amazing on you... :-)

  5. Fragrances for Everyone . Fragrances such as Pineapple, Vetiver, Red Fruits, Apple, Lemon, Peony, Freesia, Musk, Cedar, Tiare Flower, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Bergamot, Lilac, Vanilla

  6. I have orange power and maple mocha from this range. my orange power had broken in the tube on the very first swatch on my lips. so I didn't used maple mocha yet.

  7. Hi Samyukta, nice blog and your eyes, i must say, are luvly! It's not just your stick but the bullet of my Lincoln Rose lipstick was broken from the bottom. Though fragile but the best lipstick i ever own!
    A beautiful colour.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
