A lipstick that delivers intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. Colour Riche Moisture Matte's unique formula contains jojoba oil for unrivaled moisture and comfort along with matte gel technology to create an intense matte look.
The L'Oreal Paris COLOR RICHE Moisture Matte lipsticks come in a beautiful shiny steel-y metallic casing with a rosy tint. It does have a shade indicator on the side too. The packaging is just fabulous, and this is the second in series from L'Oreal, right after The Shine Caresse Lip Color that also took my breath away with a gorgeous golden casing. I think L'Oreal's team is working hard on the packaging part and I am so giving them a lot of credit for this. The cap fits with a click, and it has a grove on one side that lets you know what direction to plug it on. It will never open in your purse, so easy to carry as well. (and yea, I'm going on a small vacation in about a month and I'm surely carrying this baby with me all the way,and why, you would know by the end of this post!!). It has a tear drop shaped bullet top that sits comfortably on the lips and makes application so easy. I am just a little wary of applying too much pressure though because I've heard some bloggers complaining of the lipstick breaking from the base. So in case you have one of these, just be a little extra careful.
(TIP: DO NOT REFRIGERATE your lipsticks, whether this or any other because when you take them out, there will be condensation on the bullet and water droplets will form AND water is the medium in which contamination happens, like FUNGAL GROWTH . )
The shade M511 Glamor Fuchsia is the most fabulous purple Pink that you must have seen in recent times. It is the perfect Fuchsia with a hint of purple (on lips , it looks quite close to MAC's Lip Pencil Magenta, Magenta is a shade more purple and the color is more intense, and also I've heard it's a possible dupe for MAC's Retro Matte Lipstick Flat Out Fabulous, though I haven't tried FOF so can't say for sure!). Nonetheless, Glamor Fuchsia looked just like the kind of purple pink that I've been looking for and I picked it over all other pretty shades from this range.
The texture of this lipcolor feels like a hybrid between gel and cream, and it provides opaque color in a few gentle swipes, maybe three or four. The colors takes about a few minutes to settle down to it's actual finish which is like a velvet matte as the product claims, and not exactly a dry matte. Infact, it keeps you lips in good condition even after long hours of wear. It is exactly the kind of matte that women with dry lips can try. I didn't find it particularly moisturizing, but it was definitely not drying. It wears comfortably for as long as 6+ hours and fades evenly into a beautiful Purple-pink stain. It may turn a bit patchy after a meal though. It only mildly transfers.
Overall, The L'Oreal COLOR RICHE Moisture Matte lipstick Glamor Fuchsia is a great Purple Pink shade that brings out the best in my warm Indian skin. The lipstick has a lightweight and comfortable feel on the lips, and provides a velvety matte finish. The non-drying formula makes it totally apt for women with dry lips. It wears for long, about 6+ hours and might turn patchy after a meal, but otherwise fades evenly with time.
