How did your week go? I have been off for awhile…had some personal issues but I’m sure they will be resolved soon 🙂
Today I am reviewing a lipstick for you all. Lipsticks are my eternal love and I can never have enough of them ♥ I just keep hoarding them like there’s no tomorrow 😛 Today I’m reviewing a shade called L’Oreal Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick in Pure Garnet that I used a LOT during winters! It’s spring now but I don’t like to go by trends all the time. I always wear or use stuff that I am comfortable with at that particular instant. I think it’s always better that way because you should never feel pressurized to wear or use a particular thing just because it’s trendy! Wear what you are comfortable with and that itself would be your style statement because you would be able to carry it off with ease and oodles of confidence 😉
Enough with my blabber now and moving on to the review…

My take on L’Oreal Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick in Pure Garnet
Packaging: These L’Oreal lipsticks chosen by the 7 brand ambassadors come in 7 different shades of red all wrapped up in classic black glossy lipstick casing with the bullet enclosed in a golden bullet case. The fun part about these lippies are that they are signed by the particular ambassador on the lipstick case. Doesn’t it give that personalized touch? And it also makes identifying the shades wayyyy easier I absolutely love the packaging…they are attractive as well as classy!
Texture: These are super creamy that settle down to a matte finish. Pure Garnet is a gorgeous deep wine shade that I just LOVE! It looks deep brown in the bullet but just swipe it on and you would find the most beautiful shade that would compliment any skin tone ♥ It is an easy dupe of MAC Diva. This is my first bold wine shade and I am absolutely in love with it 😀 I recommend using a lip balm before you apply Pure Garnet because it could get a bit drying since it settles down to a matte finish. It glides on with ease and there’s no tugging whatsoever. The pigmentation is amazing! One swipe and it would cover even pigmented lips. Also, the shape of the bullet is really unique. Its shaped in such a way that you would be able to reach the corners of your lips with ease.
Results: L’Oreal Paris sure knows how to make their customers happy 🙂 The colour is pretty bold the first 6 hours and then leaves a beautiful purplish pink stain. The stain stays on forever and requires a makeup remover to remove it completely at the end of the day. I love how this colour instantly brightens up my face. I would actually suggest people with fair as well as wheatish skin tones to give it a try! Dusky skin tones can rock the shade too but I would suggest trying it at the store first 🙂
And this is how it looks on me!
