If you are thinking that why am I so obsessed with lipsticks then probably the answer is why these companies keep on bringing such amazing new range of lipsticks. Today I will be reviewing recently launched LOREAL PARIS COLOR RICHE ROUGE MATTE MAGIQUE which are complete range of intense matte lipsticks. They come in beautiful metallic hot pink and black tube. I really loved this chic pink and black version of packaging which opens and shuts with a click. They have launched 12 shades and I have 4 among them. MONT BLANC, PEACH PERFECT, SCARLET DEJAVU & VIN EXQUOIS
ROUGE MAGIQUE claims ONE SWIPE INTENSE MATTE color. Its true this lipsticks are intense but you need 2 swipes to give a complete coverage. And for deeper shades I usually like blotting them after 2 applications before going on for 3rd this way it gives me deep color.
Now talking about the formula they go matte but not complete matte like liquid lipsticks. They are non drying and doesn’t feel heavy on lips. The formula textures is soft, smooth and creamy which glides effortlessly without having to drag or pull. Inspite of being matte it doesn't make my lips feel like dry and parched. They do have some moisturizing properties which makes it easy to apply. Also on initial application it gives a semi matte effect. The formula doesn’t settle into fine lines except for chapped lips.
These are not transfer proof. So you going to see them on your glass, coffee mugs etc. You definitely need touch ups as it fades away from center of your lips. Darker shades do leave a stain. I wont say they are long lasting but it does stay pretty well for 4 hrs. Even after meals you going to find pink stained lips. So this lip color doesn’t wash out completely. It doesn’t contain any fragrance also I would suggest to use a lip pencils for deep and bold shades to give proper defined lips also you can use a lip brush.
Overall Recommended If you love dark, bold shades of lipsticks you definitely need to try them as they are intensely pigmented. You can make a bold statement with these lipsticks at romantic date, work or parties. Also they are not so matte it has moisturizing formula which can keep your lips hydrated. My personal favorite shade has to be in red SCARLET DEJAVU. I also like VIN EXQUOIS but I wish it had more even coverage like scarlet dejavu. These lipsticks are reasonably priced. I think they are the most affordable range of lipsticks in LOREAL.
