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. 😊

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
