It’s all about a red lipstick today :)
I didn’t have a lipstick by L’Oreal in a while. And since so many bloggers are in love with the new red lipstick collection, I need one of those too :)
The Exclusive Reds Collection comes in 6 shades, a shade for each of their spokespeople: Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, Zoe Saldana and Liya Kebede.
I really wanted to get my hands on the Blake Lively red lipstick, but it was never there… It is a true cool red color. I am still gonna get it whenever I will have a chance. My 2nd favorite of the bunch was Freida’s red.
The packaging is so elegant. Classy and extremely well designed. Black and gold. Oh, and it is very pleasant to the touch. It is rubberized.
It retails for $8.99 at most of the drugstores, but I got mine at Walmart for a little less than $6.
A Red for Every Woman.
Pure Matte Color.
Velvet soft feel.
This red is more than your average lip shade—it’s bold, iconic, curated richness that glides on for a soft matte finish.
Let’s start with the color. A beautiful fuchsia-red. I see this red lipstick flattering most of the skin tones. For sure it will look fabulous on fair/pale skin! I have light skin complexion and this fuchsia-red brightens up my face so nicely.
The texture is buttery smooth. The smell is not overpowering. I wouldn’t say it is matte though. It is creamy and doesn’t dry to a matte finish.
My lips feel moisturized and very comfortable.
Pigmentation is decent. I need a couple layers to get the opacity I prefer. Stays on my lips for a good 5-6 hrs. But I do use a lip liner as a base of course to prevent it from bleeding.
It stains my lips a little bit. But some makeup remover is fixing that for me.
