L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick - Intense Fuchsia 288 [Review+Swatch]

This season it is all about wearing dark color on your lips. Are you ready to wear one? If yes, there is a small surprise for you.

L'Oreal Color Riche Lipsticks are one of my favorite lipsticks. I own one nude color by L'Oreal, and it's my favorite and perfect nude. But, this time it's the opposite color. Let's see what I have.

My experience:
L’Oreal Color Riche lipsticks have always been my absolute favorite. Why? Because, L'Oreal Color Riche lipsticks stay true to color, are creamy, moisturizing, long-lasting and has sturdy packaging. 

First impression of L'Oreal Color Riche lipstick is the smell, it has a mild sweet floral scent; not over-powering. It has not taste, which is a good thing. The texture of the lipstick is very smooth, soft and creamy. It is a full coverage lipstick, and is highly pigmented. One swipe of the product is pretty intense. It is long-lasting and moisturizing.

The lipstick has a color indication sticker at the bottom, with the shade name and number, also the shade number is printed on top of the cap of the casing. Before opening the lipstick, I saw the color sticker at the bottom, and saw the sparkling sticker, which made me scared because I am not a glittery lipstick person. As for the packaging, it is not something very catchy or attractive. It is golden sturdy plastic; not flimsy. You don't have to fear about it to get open in your bag. The lipstick has the name L'Oreal embossed on it, which I love.

'288 – Intense Fuchsia', the name describes the shade, doesn’t it? It is a bold and bright fuchsia color, with hints of blue undertones and tiny amount of gold specks in it. The tiny specks makes the lipstick shine when applied, it's not crazy shimmery. I'm personally not a fan of frosted or shimmery lipsticks; little amount of shimmer doesn’t bother me. The color is intense, as you can see – looks gorgeous after applying. It is a staple color, which will look good both on warm and cool skin tones.

It is a semi-matte, with slightly glossy finish - a cremesheen lipstick. Also, it doesn't melt into the lines of the lips or feathers out. It glides on very easily, and stays fresh on my lips for 6 to 8 hours, and then starts to tone down; doesn't lose the color intensity. Just the glossy-ness fades and then you can see the gold specks shining on the lips. In between this time, I had my food and tea, but it stayed on my lips. As it is a dark shade, it lasts longer and stains your lips or should I say, the color deposits on your lips and stays on for quite a long time. I love the staining part in the lipsticks, that way you don't have to re-apply the lipstick. It sticks to the lips, but is not sticky at all. 

  • Stay true to color.
  • Long lasting.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Pigmented.
  • Does not melt into the lines of my lips.
  • Available worldwide.
  • Didn't find any yet. 
Did I like it?
Yes, I love it!

Will I recommend?
Yes, I will recommend if you are looking for something that is long- lasting and moisturizes your lips. Especially, if you are a working lady.

Price: PKR 1400.
Available at? All the leading supermarkets, at L’Oreal Paris kiosk.

The good news is, I was sent 2 lipsticks, and I am giving away one L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick, same shade to one of you. Exciting? But it is only open to residents of Pakistan. Check my Facebook page HERE for more details.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, I am going to review the most  requested product after my 2nd Haul post :) Yes, it is Watsons Repairing Treatment Wax.

I went to Naheed Supermarket and found this little jar. I had alot of time that day to go through something for my haircare. I picked up a jar from Boots, which was more like a conditioner to me.

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.
