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.

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick:
As with all Color Riche lipsticks, the L’Oréal Laboratories have selected only the purest and finest colour pigments, and the unique combination of Omega 3 and Vitamin E moisturises lips for smooth application and comfortable wear.

L’Oréal Paris has designed new intense lip shades to bring out the best in every woman!

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.

Did I like it?

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.

About the product:

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
