Remember the popular ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’ dialogue? “Salmon Pink, Old Rose Pink, Carnation Pink, Hot Pink, Magenta Pink!” Truly what’s life without Pretty Pink Punch and ‘Pyaar’, of course?
As much as we love all colours when it comes to puckering up, can we think beyond the Pinks? Can’t deny our pouty selfies are big on this colour. At least mine are! Most nudes tend to wash me out, reds and oranges are quite fiery for an everyday. So girls, grab a Pink on the rush and you’ll walk out a heavenly gush.
Pink, to me, translates to a fresh, au naturel and an ever-appealing look. Every time I seek an orange, a nude or a brown; I happen to pull out a, well, of course, you got that! Does this happen with you too? Now that’s why I’ve been trying hard to resist the lure of L’OREAL’s ‘Pink Perfection Range’ i.e. the Star Pink Collection for long. Well, then what is this post about! So, I lost to win, yet again!
POST EXCUSE ; )
The post is about my three picks from the ‘Pink Perfection’ lipstick collection for Three Lip looks – The Day, The Night and The Smokey.
L’OREAL, a favourite beauty brand. Their last ‘Star Reds Collection’ was truly enchanting too (Sonam’s ‘Pure Garnet’ is still a favourite). So, there was no stopping that hop to the mall for the now ‘Star Pinks’.
‘Star Pinks’ is the L’OREAL ‘LA VIE EN ROSE’ by Color Riche which translates to ‘Life In Pink’ in French. A Star Collection, the range is endorsed by L’oreal Paris Brand Ambassadors from across the globe.L’OREAL ‘LA VIE EN ROSE’ COLLECTION [12 delicate matte shades]

The well-curated shades by L’OREAL Colour Designer, Eva Yean, inspired and endorsed by iconic brand ambassadors from across the globe, is believed to offer a delicate match for every woman.

PIGMENTATION & STAYING POWER:
Medium to buildable coverage. The lighter shades (NAOMI and DOUTZEN) are not as pigmented but are buildable. BLAKE and NAOMI too need re-application and are a little opaque. The darker shades stay on for long and are well-pigmented.
‘SMOKEY’ LOOK: NAOMI’S DELICATE ROSE [MOIST MAT Range]
The lightest hue in the collection, a beige Pink that translates to a nude, is a sheer matte with subtle shimmer. Rightly so, the perfect Pink to complement strong smokey eyes.
-REVIEW: Not too pigmented, needs re-application. Lip needs to be defined with a lipliner before filling in this colour. But, a great colour, especially for cool skin tones.
PICK FOR THE ‘DAY’: EVA’S DELICATE ROSE [MOIST MAT]
The second lightest Pink is a dusty rose Pink with gold shimmers. Very Spring and great for an everyday.
-REVIEW: Well pigmented. Stays on for 6-7 hours. Thereafter, leaves a pretty pink tint on the lips. Complements medium to fair skin tones.
PICK FOR THE ‘NIGHT’: JULIANNE’S MAGNOLIA [L’ EXTRAORDINAIRE MAT]
The darkest hue of all, this one’s a deep-berry purplish pink. Intense colour and high on shine. Also, a personal favourite from the collection. If you love to pair up your catty eyes with a strong pout, then this shade will surely make heads turn.
-REVIEW: Well pigmented. Doesn’t budge for hours after application. Complements dusky skin tones well.
Declare your love for the rosy hues in custom-made delicate Pinks complimenting varied skin tone. Pink perfection and Truly Worth It!
Until next post!
