L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick “Lincoln Rose” Swatch, Review And LOTD
All the brands are coming up with new lipstick formulas these days. With bright and beautiful colors, it is also one of the important aspect to have good staying power. L’Oreal recently has come up with so many different ranges from the shine caresse lip stains to rouge caresse lipsticks to moist matte lipsticks. Every year with Cannes festival, L’Oreal launches some new colors with new formulas. This year it’s L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick. And today I am reviewing one of the pretty red lipcolor from the Moist Matte Range of L’Oreal Lipsticks.
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick Price: INR 899/- for 4.2 gm
These L’Oreal moist matte lipsticks have a beautiful rose gold packaging and color of lipstick is embossed in front. Name of the lipstick is mentioned in bottom. Sturdy and luxurious packaging makes them more desirable.
Texture of the moist matte lipstick is matte but not dry matte like MAC Retro Matte. They are not creamy either, but more like a velvety matte. These are very soft on application and do not tug while applying on lips. However if lips are not properly exfoliated, these may emphasize dry skin and fine lines.
While applying this lipstick I felt it stays better when lip balm has not been used underneath. Also I noticed that the color changes a bit when lip balm is applied underneath. Formula doesn’t feather or bleed, but for such statement colors it is better if concealer has been used around lip area. I find the texture of L’Oreal moist matte lipsticks a lot better than matte lipsticks from MAC because these are truly long wear. And even after wearing them for 4-5 hours I didn’t felt the need to apply lip balm. However one day I was washing my face and splashed some water on my lips while wearing the lipstick and color came off easily. I am not sure whether it is with this particular shade or with other shades, but this was surprise for me since it’s a matte formula I didn’t expect it to come off so easily. Though it sticks to lips and doesn’t move around. Lincoln Rose is highly pigmented and covers lip discoloration in a single swipe. Color stains heavily and does transfer to cups. Even after blotting it once I could see the color coming off on cups, though it’s not heavy. The stain can only be removed with bi phase makeup remover.

The shade Lincoln Rose:
The shade Lincoln Rose is a pretty pinkish red. This particular shade is one of the best-selling shades from this moist matte range. Though initially I was hesitant of wearing such a bold color, but to my surprise it looks quite good in person. It instantly brightens up my complexion. It is one of the shades which will look good on all skin tones. If swatches are compared to L’Oreal color riche Intense Fuchsia and MAC Retro Matte All Fired Up, Intense Fuchsia is pinker and Lincoln Rose has more red than All fired up. When lipstick is blotted color appears lot more pink with red undertones. This is very bright and bold color so stains heavily. When applied lightly it can be used during day time, but for girls with a faint heart Lincoln Red is not your shade.

[alert-note] Looks beautiful on you Divya. Loved the lip swatches. I heard these lipsticks are braking because of the creamy texture, so did not pick any. 🙁 Since yours is alright, I will give one of these a try. 🙂 Lovely review . <3 [/alert-note]
