L’Oreal Collection Star Pure Red Lipsticks “Pure Fire” and “Pure Scarleto”
I am back with two more shades from the lovely Collection of L’oreal Paris’s Star lipsticks range. I have already shared the reviews of a beautiful fuchsia pink “Pure Amaranthe” and a gorgeous wine red “Pure Garnet” earlier. Today I have the orange “Pure Fire” and a scarlet red “Pure Scarleto” for you all! 🙂
Price: 995/- for 4.2 gms
The Collection is created with a revolutionary and innovative formula that delivers bold, luscious color that lasts for a full 6 hours, making it the ultimate beauty indulgence. The range is enriched with new Light Illum complex that delivers a rich matte effect. The Velvet Fusion capsules and Ultra Gliding Shine Oils provide smooth and silky application. Pure pigments deliver intense colorand Jojoba oil gives perfect hydration up to 4 hours.
My Experience with L’Oreal Collection Star Pure Red Lipsticks “Pure Fire” and “Pure Scarleto” :
The packaging is the typical to the range. A se*y black case with the color coded piece on the sides and the autograph of the stars they belong to on the cap! “Pure Fire” is the color of chinese actress and singer “Li Bingbing” and “Pure Scarleto” belongs to “Blake Lively” (someone I knew of before the launch 😛 ) .
The finish is matte like Amaranthe and Garnet, but the texture are again very different from each other! Thankfully the staying power is great in all the lipsticks in this range and you can count on these to be there on your lips unless you remove them with a makeup remover!
L’Oreal Collection Star Pure Red Lipstick “Pure Fire” :
“Pure Fire” is a beautiful orange with a red undertone! Even though it appears a tad bit orange initially, it goes deeper in a while and if you are looking at it from far, you would mistake it for an orange red .
The texture is the lightest you will find in the range. It deposits a very thin layer that almost coats my lips like a stain. It does not bleed or feather and the least staining as well! The only shade from the Collection Star range that does not leave behind a stain even after removal with a bi-phasic remover! This is also one of the shades that does not leave my lips dry.
Pigmentation is good if not mind blowing. Two swipes are good enough for an opaque coverage!
The color is most suitable for medium skin tone, but definitely is work-able on lighter and dark skin tone. The key is to co-ordinate rest of the face makeup and outfit. I can totally visualise myself with an orange sling bag with this green top I am wearing! You can also pair matching stilettos for a well put together look! 🙂

L’Oreal Collection Star Pure Red Lipstick “Pure Scarleto”:
A scarlet red as the name suggests! “Pure Scarleto” is a bright red with a slight orange tinge! A warm red you can say and is perfect for those who are into bright reds that is not too deep and not too in your face. 🙂 However it is not an unique shade of red. You may already have something similar in your stash if you look closely enough! I think I have few similar reds in my red collection as well. Shall share them with you soon!
The texture is similar to “Pure Garnet”. Soft, creamy and smooth to glide, but sets to a matte finish. “Pure Scarleto” is insanely pigmented and coats lips in one single swipe! <3 Does not feather or transfer and stains heavily! You will find your lips still a rosy pink in color after it’s removal. This does leave my lips a little dry after few hours of wear, so a lip balm underneath is a must for me.
The color “Pure Scarlet” is suitable for most Indian skin tones and it is an fairly easy red to sport. A blush from the same color family is all you need to rock this lipstick! A little bit of kohl and mascara would just add to it! I have skipped kohl and used a golden wash of colour all over my eye lid to keep the lipstick in focus! 🙂

Scarleto has a faint hint of pink tint that is visible in different light settings once in a while as in case with the above picture.
And last but not the least a side by side picture for comparison! 😉
L’Oreal Collection Star Lipstick “Pure Fire” is a must have orange lipstick IMO. You do not really get such pretty orange colors in matte finish that is not drying on lips and stays on for the whole day! Love orange lip colors then definitely pick this up! As far as “Pure Scarleto” goes, it is a great shade of red for Indian skin tone. If you do not already own a similar color then you can definitely give this a try! Or else just skip it! Why repeat when you can try different shades. Check out the other shades from the range! 😉
