Fashion Week has begun in New York! I’m loving going through all the collections everyday… lots of late nights for me. Also, fair warning, this month’s posts are pretty much going to be runway collections and lipsticks. Yep.
Anyway, moving on, here’s one gorgeous lipstick, L’oreal Moist Matte Lipstick in Glamour Fuchsia. I had reviewed the shade Lincoln Rose last week, this one is just as awesome. The colour is to die for, it looks so so amazing. I love brights that aren’t neon, they tend to suit all kinds of skintones and this fits the bill.
Glamour Fuchsia as the name might suggest, is a bright cool toned pink. It has that slight purple tone to it but on the lips it’s pretty much pink.
Another reason to get this? It’s a pretty good dupe for Mac Flat Out Fabulous! It’s a very wearable blue tone pink, I just love it… Other similar lipsticks like Maybelline Vivids in Hot Plum and Brazen Berry are more cool toned and a bit more purple. Same goes for YSL Fuchsia in Rage and Shiseido RS 320.
I found it a bit less pigmented than Lincoln Rose, it wasn’t completely opaque for me in one swipe but still good enough for those who may not have very pigmented lips. You get good payoff in two swipes and overall, it has that light feel which makes it very comfortable to wear.
It’s best to wear it on smooth exfoliated lips, the texture of this lipstick is thin and it hugs your lips so any unevenness will show through.
The finish is a velvet or suede kind of matte, not as much as the Mac Retro Mattes and or the regular Matte finish.
It wears very well beyond 8 hours and you can easily make this more durable by layering and blotting.
You get 4.2g of product (which is more than your average lipstick) for Rs. 899. The packaging is lovely int he rose gold kind of metallic colour. I have heard a lot of people complain about the lipstick breaking. Hasn’t happened to me so far but best be careful while handling it! ^_^
