L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick “Glamor Fuchsia” Review and Swatch
L’Oreal has come up with a new range of lipsticks in rich colors that look absolutely glorious. I decided to pick Glamor Fuchsia, as after hovering between that and Lincoln Rose, I realized that I have way too many shades of red and not enough fuchsia.
What L’Oreal Has to Say: A lipstick that delivers intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick’s unique formula contains jojoba oil for unrivaled moisture and comfort along with matte gel technology to create an intense matte look. Velvet matte gel technology is combined with deep pigments and Jojoba oil to give a deep colour pay-off, maintaining ultimate moisture and comfort.

My Take on L’Oreal Glamor Fuchsia:
I love the packaging. What’s not to love about it? It’s beautiful golden with a little pink square on the side, which indicates the color. The shade name is written at the bottom. Once you open, the bullet is a lovely shade of fuchsia without any glitter or shimmer. Just a simple, creamy, moisturizing matte lipstick without any strong smell or taste.
When I was buying this color, I was not aware of the fact that many people have claimed that this is a dupe of the elusive MAC Flat Out Fabulous. I have used both, and I have to say, shamefully, that L’Oreal wins this game. Flat out Fabulous is way too drying on my lips, and this one isn’t. In fact, I love the name moist matte because that is what this exactly is – matte but creamy, which makes my lips happy.
However, well, every rose has its thorns. Because this is VERY CREAMY, the bullet actually broke from the base for me. I was heartbroken, and I can’t carry this lipstick around with me, but, what I do generally is use this lipstick with a brush, blot, apply it a second time, blot again, and that sort of sets the lipstick perfectly. This lipstick does not need all those initial preps that you need to do with normal matte lipsticks – apply lip balm, scrub, etc etc. All you have to do is put this on, smile, and you are good to go. It does not feather, bleed, and make my lips dry and weird-looking. It does transfer a bit though.
L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick “Glamor Fuchsia” Swatch:
The color “Glamor Fuchsia” lasts 5-6 hours easily on me without touch ups. If I eat and/or drink, it fades, but that is normal, and the stain it leaves behind is absolutely gorgeous. It might be slightly drying after 4 hours or so, but nothing a spot of lip balm cannot help save.

Review by Poorna
[alert-note]Loved the color a lot! I so wish these were more stable. That’s the only reason I haven’t yet picked one of these pretty colors from the range, cause I know the moment it breaks I am not going to touch it anymore. 🙁 May be I should just pick one up and keep it in the fridge forever. 😛 Nice review BTW Poorna. 🙂 [/alert-note]
