When it comes to makeup, every beauty enthusiasts that I know will always have a certain product or two that they can't live without. As for me, lipsticks will always be a must-have in my kit because just a swipe of it can make or break my look. In my case, being a busy mom means less time primping which is why applying lipstick is the quickest way to brighten my face up! I can live without concealer or pangkilay, but lipsticks? Di pwedeng mawala yan gurl!
That's why when I found out that Project Vanity is having a Lipstick Party with L'Oreal, I didn't hesitate to join! I knew that their lipsticks are good so imagine my excitement in seeing new shades and getting to bring home 3 new colors! 💋💄💗
At the event, there were lots of lipstick shades available to swatch by the many girls who attended. I kinda got overwhelmed by the so many choices so I picked the top 5 colors that picqued my curiosity.
The lipstick packaging is simpky classic with a combination of black with golden accents. The manufacturing date of each lipsticks are printed on the casing itself so you'll know when they are made and have an idea when they will expire. When you buy a lipstick, they are sealed with plastic, no box included, which I find practical and eco-friendly: n9 more box to throw away (since not everyone keeps a cosmetic's box).
The L’Oreal team introduced their new L’Oreal Color Riche Mattes – creamy rich matte colors that offer intense hydration and comfortable wear. These lipsticks are shockingly pigmented and have a color variety of reds, pinks, bolds, nudes, and browns to choose from!
I saw these bold colors and immediately fell in-love. The formulation is something to adore for just one swipe gives a heavy pigmentation that feels lightweight on the lips. They apply smoothly and have a beautiful velvet matte finish. However, I thought that I already have similar shades of these already in my lipstick stash at home so I got 3 different shades instead: brown-based red, pink and nude.
As you can see, the color selection that most attendees were able to get home are universally-flattering brown based muted shades. Chinitas, mestizas, and morenas will surely find these beautifully useful! Good job to the #LorealxProjectVanity team for carefully selecting these colors!
Rich Merlot is a brown-based deep red that's perfect if you want a bold, powerful shade that screams "Boss Girl", Hinted Blush is a mauve pink with a hint of brown, it's like a matured, muted version of nude pink when you want to look feminine yet not too girly. Rose Nuance, my personal fave, is a medium peach with a hint of brown. For fair-skinned tone like mine, it gives my face some color that isn't overpowering. I like that it's kind of warm and can ne used anytime, anywhere!
As expected of #LorealPH, their #TheRicheMattes lipstick collection lives up to their name and are worthy to collect! Stunning colors, high pigmentation, rich and moisturizing formulation, smooth application, it's just.... heaven on the lips!
I honestly think that L'Oreal The Riche Matte Lipstick Range delivers equal quality with a high-end lipstick brand that I used to be fond of collecting before! Just imagine, with the price of that Php 1,000+ high-end lipstick, I can already buy 3 pieces of L'Oreal lippies? Just wow! If you are on the budget (or even if you got more to spare), I highly recommend collecting these instead coz really, halos parehas lang naman sila! They are being sold for Php 350 each so it is super sulit and you get more than what you pay for!
