It’s amazing how I thought I would NEVER ever wear red lipstick, and yet now I find myself reaching for that fire engine color with my all black anarkali, that deep wine red with my wintery beige overcoat or that fresh coral red with my peach sundress! And L’oreal seemed to have known this fact because the Color Riche Pur Red Star collection really does have a red for every mood.

PS: Im thinking of doing a post on how to choose a red lipstick for your skintone based on all of these. Let me know if that would be helpful.

Anyway coming to these lipsticks- I cant get enough of them- there are a few in there which have become my go to red lipstick (Pure vermel Im looking at you babe!) , and some which i like to throw on for experiments. It doesn’t hurt that these are all made for individual celebs- you can pick the person whose skintone you are closest to and buy that one for yourself (though honestly my favourite one doesnt have a celeb name attached to it)


Left to right: Pure Garnet (Sonam Kapoor),  Pure Vermel , Pure Fire (Li Bing Bing), Pure Scarletto (Blake Lively), Pure Brick Aishwarya Rai)2-loreal-color-riche-red1


Pure Garnet is a deep, dark red – like the color of warm, mulled wine in the winter time


Pure Vermel is a color to DIE for I absolutely LOVE it. A gorgeous coral red- this makes my face light up and is the perfect warm red for my skintone


Pure fire, is a bright tangerine color



Pure Scarletto is another favourite as well. Its a true, blue neutral red and one that looks great on warmer skintones. This one is meant for Frieda Pinto


Pure Brick is more of a brown red and a good way to cheat yourself into wearing red. Its a great color for work which still makes a statement but isn’t so out there as to scare away the employees. Really like this one as well
