L'Oreal La Vie En Rose Moist Matte Lipstick Liya's Delicate Rose Review And Swatches!

L'Oreal La Vie En Rose Moist Matte Lipstick Liya's Delicate Rose Review And Swatches!

ISLM Writer: Nimisha

After the humungous success of the 'Pure Reds' collection,  L’Oreal Paris had come out with the 'Exclusive Pinks'. Having already heard about their launch in the international markets, I was waiting with crossed fingers for their launch in India. So, the other day when I was shopping around with one of friend's, I insisted on finally getting my hands on them at the L’Oreal Paris counter to finally check it out.

The shade that I purchased is 'Liya's Delicate Rose'.

It retails at Rs. 995 for a bullet.

Being from the Color Riche staple, it bares trademark features of the collection. It comes in a matte black coloured packaging similar to the golden packaging of the Color Riche lipsticks. The fragrance also reminds you of the same. As for the formula, the lipstick has a stunning velvety texture and gives more of a satin finish plus it does not settle in the fine lines.

Coming to the colour, as soon as I opened the bullet, the first thing that came to my mind was MAC All Fired Up. In the bullet, it seems more like a gorgeous hot pink.

The extremely fine micro-shimmers attribute to the glow in the colour and add more dimension to it and on application on the lips it gives a more reddish pink payoff (though I can credit that to my pigmented lips :P). Though I still like the colour :)

Though I wouldn't say that the lipstick gives a truly opaque finish in just one stride and you might need to give a swipe or two to get the full coverage as well as the true color. The staying power is pretty good (4-5 hours with light munching), and it fades evenly leaving behind a uniform stain.

I wouldn't say I was immensely thrilled by the shades in the collection; considering that the shades would be much suited for girls/women with fair to medium fair complexion, giving the average Indian women fewer options in the collection.

• The texture is wonderful, extremely comfortable. It does not dry out the lips.
• Decent staying power with uniform fading.
• The shade is extremely pretty.

• Fragrance may be a put off for some individuals.
• Slightly pricey.
• The shades in the collection aren't as diverse as the predecessors, Pure Reds.
• The colour in the bullet doesn't exactly transfer on the lips; it's more on a sheer note.

A must try shade since it has red undertones and will suit most fair to medium toned damsels. I am sure you will love wearing this baby.



  1. You look pretty and shade looks nice on you.
    This range has pretty shade, but still I am not wowed by these as Reds :)

    1. Yes, indeed the pinks are really pretty but they stand no where in comparison to the star reds collection!

    2. Oh thanks, Swathi! I absolutely second you about not being wowed enough.

      But still I think this shade will go for Indian damsels. 😊

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

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…
