L’oreal launched their “La Vie En Rose” collection just in time for Valentine’s Day – a collection of semi-matte & glossy lipsticks and nail paints all in pink!
There is no woman who ever said I have enough lipsticks. Likewise, no woman ever said she had enough “pink” in her life too! L’oreal has tried to put together a concoction of these two weaknesses of every woman and come up with another striking collection.
Did the La Vie En Rose collection won over our hearts like the L’oreal Pure Reds Star Collection Lipsticks that launched same time around last year? Let’s see…
Here is the review of L’oreal Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick – Pure Rouge by Freida.
In this post, I am doing a detailed review on two of the Moist Matte lipstick shades from this collection.
L’OREAL PARIS LA VIE EN ROSE MOIST MATTE LIPSTICKS – EVA’S PINK & JLO’S PINK
PRICE – INR 995
AVAILABILITY – L’oreal counters across the country and online shopping portals
The lipsticks come in a matte black case with a golden rim and golden signature fonts. Very attractive and classy! If you can remember to match the shades to the name, its going to be easy identifying the right shade.
L’oreal’s superhit moist matte formula glides easily on the lips and dries to a semi-matte finish. I haven’t seen any melting or breaking of the bullet in these lipsticks yet, though I have this issue with the original moist matte lipsticks.
A collection of 7 different pink shades chosen by each L’oreal ambassador makes up the La Vie En Rose Moist Matte Lipstick Collection and I have Eva’s Pink and JLo’s Pink with me.
The actual shade names of the lipsticks are Eva’s Delicate Rose and JLo’s Delicate Rose.
The lipsticks have a strong baby powder fragrance that hits you the moment you open the lid.
EVA’S DELICATE ROSE
A muted dusty rose that has very fine shimmer to do the jazz!
I am not a lover of shimmer in my lipsticks, but the faint glimmer in this lipstick is to my liking surprisingly! Need about 2-3 swipes to get full coverage and the lipstick lasts me easily 3-4 hrs. with light food.
The fragrance is quite heady and not to my liking and does stay put a while before it fades off.
Inspite of the light shimmer, this lipstick is very much wearable in the day and to office. Goes great with smoky eyes or just some kohl-rimmed ones.
One of my go to daily wear shades now!
JLO’S DELICATE ROSE
A deep berry pink!
I am head over heels in love with deep berries and plums of late and this is a nice addition to my stash. Its got a little purple tones to it that is visible under sunlight, but indoors it looks a nice deep berry.
The pigmentation I felt is a little down in this shade and I had to swipe atleast 4 times to get the desired intensity on my lips.
Its one of those shades that brightnes up the face and makes you look cheery. Perfect for fall actually… nevertheless you can rock it this season with the right makeup and clothes!
This shade too stay put on me for 4 hrs. with light food and left a nice deep pink tint behind.
There are some shades in this collection, that could be too frosty or pale for Indian skin or might only suit the fair skinned. But if you are looking to buy something from this range, its got to be these two shades.
JLo’s Pink will suit every one and Eva’s Pink can be pulled off with the right attitude!
