L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Stars Collection Pure Reds Lipstick --Pure BRICK Review

Every woman must at some stage of life experiment with the color RED in lipsticks , for RED oozes confidence, power , boldness and celebration .But some woman are perplexed  by the various shades available ,so L'Oreal has come to the rescue and ever since I came to know that L'Oreal has launched a new collection of  its well received Color Riche Moist Matte range with the name - L'oreal Color Riche Star Collection Pure Reds ,I was aching to get at least one for myself and that is what today's review is all about .

Coming to the review itself . I zero-ed in on  two shades to swatch for medium dusky skin with pigmented lips -Pure Brick (Aishwarya ) and Pure Garnet (Freida ) .

 L'oreal Color Riche Star Collection Pure Reds Lipsticks has a great concept.Select the celebrity who you think your skin tone most closely matches and Voila - Your Perfect Red is there for you . 

The PRICE - Rs 995/-  available at all L'Oreal counters and Online at Nykaa.

The PROS of  L'oreal Color Riche Star Collection Pure Reds Lipstick --Pure BRICK

  • Beautiful and elegant Black casing with a small square indicating the exact shade within.
  • It feels very soft and easy to apply , no tugging at the lips .
  • Gives very good coverage in single swipe ,so will last long and justify the price
  • Will suit Indian complexions specially the warm ones very well .

  • The color is warm ,red with brown undertones .
  • The colour lasts for 4-5 hours very easily 
  • Pure matte (no shine ) color
  • Carries the autograph of the star endorsing it 
  • Seven shades of red available for different complexions from Asian to Caucasian .

The CONS of  L'oreal Color Riche Star Collection Pure Reds Lipstick --Pure BRICK

  • Expensive at Rs 995/-
  • I felt it could have been little more easy to glide on.
  • Starts feeling dry after 3-4 hours ,so it will be important to prime the lips first.
  • Applying from the bullet is slightly messy as it is very soft ,a brush gives better application
  • Stains the lips and a special lip and eye make up remover is needed to take it off 
  • It does not completely cover my pigmented lips and I think depending upon the colour of your lips the shade would come out darker brownish brick on pigmented lips or orangey red on lighter lips .


FINAL VERDICT --These lipsticks give beautiful matte ,orangey-red colour and last long , the celebrity endorsement helps in picking the right shade for you.I give it a 4.5 /5 , minus marks for the slight smudginess while application and the price , but otherwise a beautiful lipstick to own. I feel the shade Pure Garnet is a true red too which will suit all skin colours .
