Online shopping has its pros and cons, like I do enjoy browsing stuff from the comfort of my home but also I feel disappointed at times when the product which I ordered doesn’t turn out the way I imagined it to be. And this is the most common scenario in case of makeup! So when an online retailer lured me with 25% discount (no store offers such deal, ever!) I thought of trying out some Color Riche range lipsticks from Loreal which is usually compared to Mac lipsticks quality wise. The lipstick in question is L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick in Rose Perle.
Product Description: Color Riche lipstick combines luxurious colour with lasting hydration for an ultra-glamorous look.
• Bold and intense color: has the best color dispersion
• Omega 3, 6, and antioxidant Vitamin E: nourishes lips and makes them super soft and supple
• Soft, creamy texture
• Gives a luminous finish and is easy to wear
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick in Rose Perle is from their old range which still sells like hot cakes. I wanted a rosy pink color for everyday use and after a comprehensive research on net I got this shade. Rose Perle is a mauve pink color with golden shimmer in it. In the tube, it looks more brownish pink but upon swatching it comes as mauvish pink color. The shimmer makes the color a bit metallic on application. I am generally not fond metallic finish lipsticks but have recently read somewhere metallic lips are in trend this season, so its not a bad thing if you follow trends. Generally, I ran away from brown lipsticks and that’s exactly it looks like that in the tube and I was and I was quick to pass it to my mom and it suited her so well that I wanted to take the lipstick back (but I didn’t). I feel Rose Perle is kind of a color which attracts you when you see someone else wearing it. If it didn’t have the shimmery part, I would have enjoyed this color a lot.
Texture wise, this lipstick is everything it claims to be – smooth, buttery, pigmented. It does not feel heavy on the lips, so the quality is good. However, I feel the golden shimmer makes the texture tiny bit gritty. I also loved the creamy gold case packaging.
1. Pretty mauve pink color
2. Creamy texture
4. Doesn’t feel heavy or bleed
5. Does not settle in fine lines
6. Would suit all skin tones
7. A good option for mature skin
1. It has golden shimmer which makes it gritty
2. Color is too mature for my liking
Price: Rs. 899
Recommendation: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick in Rose Pearl is a mauvish rose pink color with soft metallic finish. It is the kind of color which would be best suited to mature skin in my opinion.
