Perfect Reds for every woman

Recently L’Oreal Paris launched an exquisite range – Color Riche Pure Reds Collection that includes 7 exquisite matte shades that are chosen by 7 ionic L’Oréal Paris ambassadors. They also had a bloggers’ meet for some of us where our hair and make up was done by Namrata Soni- the L’Oreal Paris make up expert followed by a photo shoot.

Last week, I got my Pure Reds collection to office! My colleagues and I started discussing the range and I was encouraging them to try the lipsticks.Pure Reds1

A few of my colleagues expressed their scepticism in trying out new reds or reds in general. A few reasons they stated are:

  1. Don’t know whether the shade would suit me
  2. Even if I buy a new shade, it looks different on me
  3. Lipstick doesn’t last long enough
  4. Lipstick makes my lips dry

After trying the range personally, I can say the range lasts long enough and nourishes the lips. Also, why the lipstick looks different on everyone is because of the person’s natural lip colour. For people like me who have dark lips, lipsticks do not absorb easily and looks darker. While for women who have beautiful light lips, almost all lipsticks suit them.

I asked five of my colleagues to have a look at the range.

While I chatted with them about the different shades, I asked them to try on their favourite shade

I quizzed them and got them to try the shade that they were most sceptical about along with their favourite shade. 

My colleagues and I had a fun time discussing lipsticks. It was fun to watch them go from “nooooo not that colour”  to… “oh this shade looks wonderful on me”

Read on to know what they have to say about the collection:

1. Sneha 

Pure Brick, Pure Vermeil

2. Your favourite shade in the range

Frieda’s Pure Rouge, Aishwarya’s Pure Brick

3. Which red were you most sceptical to use and why? Pure Amaranthe by Gong Li since it was pinkish red. I never do pink never thought it would suit my complexion.

4. After you wore Pure Amaranthe, what was your reaction? I was quite amazed, it looked great and I never thought it would. I tend to always ignore the pinks and wouldn’t usually consider them as options

3. Prianca

Pure Garnet v/s Pure Fire

1. What red lipstick do you usually wear and on what occasions?

 I prefer Cherry red color. I use shades of berry to work since I don’t want my lips to be highlighted too much. For parties, I use bright shades of red.

2. Your favourite shade in the range

My favorite color is red(in general). This range has all the variants of red, hard to pick one from it. I like them all.

3. Which red were you most sceptical to use and why?

Sonam’s shade was the color I was skeptical about. I have never tried that kind of shade before. That’s why instead of picking my favourite shade I picked Pure Garnet. I was unsure about  Pure Fire as well.

Wow!

I can wear it to parties and maybe even to work.

  1. These lipsticks are lovely, and it’s a nice idea to interview all your friends and get feedback from them also. I am particularly loving Freida’s shade.
