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.

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

Negatives
• 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.

Verdict
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.

Rating
4/5

    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: 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: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

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.
