Hello everyone! Sorry for being absent for a while. I’ve been swamped with work! Anyhow, I hope you guys are following me on Instagram so you can check what is up with me daily. Anyways, couple weeks a go I received a package of lipstick, and I wanted to share this L’oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte swatches and first impression with you! A huge thanks to Hani for the lovely package. I do apologize for not putting this post up any sooner.
Anyways, let’s get on it! So, I received 2 lipsticks – Rose Bud and Lincoln Rose. I’m not sure if you know, but I’m a huge fan of L’oreal Paris products. I’ve tried their foundation, eyeshadows, lipgloss, lipstick, hair products etc. I’m always impressed with their products, especially when I was living in Canada just because it is such a high quality, pigmented products yet so affordable. In Indonesia, L’oreal products are still quite pricy compared to its North American counterparts.
I have high expectations from these 2 lipsticks since I do own several L’oreal Paris lip products – colour riche extraordinaire, infallible lip liner, and colour caresse shine stain, and I absolutely love them! So, huge expectations!
Firstly, I was a bit surprised at the color of Rose Bud. I’m not a fan of plum, especially when it’s so purple (as you can see from the photo above)! It has a lot of cool undertone, and I have yet to find a way to work this into my makeup look just yet. However, when I do, I’ll for sure post it up! First impression of this shade is somewhat disappointed with the color, just because I don’t know how to approach it yet. Nevertheless, I shall step out of my comfort zone and make it work!
Now, the second shade, which is Lincoln Rose, is much more workable. I guess this shade was inspired by the flower itself, Rosa Mister Lincoln. Beautiful red shade, very vibrant. It has a warm undertone, and I can’t wait to try this shade on! I’ve been wearing lots of red and pink lipsticks lately since for some reason I’ve been having allergic reaction in Jakarta. My eyes get watery, so I try to avoid wearing much makeup on my eyes.
Anyways, I hope this post helps! I think I might go grab a few more shades myself, since this collection looks very promising. I love matte lipstick, and I adore matte lipstick with moisturizing action! It has jojoba oil, so those who suffer dry lips like me will rejoice! Moist lips for the win!
