L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique Lipstick : Vin Exquis ~ Review & Swatch

 

L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique lipstick range was launched in summers this year and I instantly fell in love with this shade. This range is not available in L’Oreal counters and neither is any official information available on L’Oreal Paris website about this range (which is strange btw). So these lipsticks are available only online. Rouge Magique range was launched with 12 shades and I am reviewing a gorgeous pink purple color- Vin Exquis 

 

Price: Rs 650 

 

 L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique Lipstick Vin Exquis Review

L’Oreal Rouge Magique lipstick comes in attractive black and metallic pink packaging, which looks very vibrant. The metallic pink of the packaging reminds me of THIS nailpolish from Heavy Metal nailpolish from Colorbar 😀 The lower half of lipstick is black colored and matte in finish. The lid is metallic pink in color and glossy in finish. The shade name is stickered at the bottom and the range name is printed at the front of lipstick. The cap clicks shut tight so it does not come off in bags. The lipstick bullet is normal swivel-up and works smoothly. The bullet is quite sturdy and does not break from the base as other lipsticks from L’Oreal (Pure Rouge and Mattemoist) range *touch wood*

 

Formula wise, these are velvety matte lipstick These are more matte than L’Oreal ‘Moist Matte’ lipstick range. These are slightly creamy in finish so it does not settle into crazy dry-your-lips kind of matte finish. These lipstick are very comfortable to wear and looks completely matte at the same time. The lips do not feel parched when this lipstick is on. It glides smoothly on the lips and needs no effort in application like some extremely matte lipsticks.

 

Vin Exquis is a gorgeous plum purple shade with slightly pink tones. This shade instantly brightens up the face. The pigmentation is intense but you need two swipes for even coverage. It is not completely transfer proof and will transfer slightly, specially when freshly applied.  But the color stays put until you eat a full meal or oil based food. When it starts to lighten it leaves a beautiful plum color stain. It stays on my lips for 3-4 hours after which it starts to fade and even at the end of the day I can still see a nice plum color stain on my lips. However, it does get into fine lines of the lips.

This is a gorgeous plum color which is perfect for evening and festive season apart from being a beautiful Fall color. L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique lipstick in shade Vin Exquis is very similar to Nykaa So Matte lipstick in Mischievous Plum. Mischievous Plum is tad darker and more purple and Vin Exquis is more vibrant and has more pink tones. I have swatched them both below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique Lipstick in shade Vin Exquis is a gorgeous plum purple color with slightly creamy finish. The pigmentation is great but needs 2 swipes for even coverage. It stays put for 3-4 hours and fades into a beautiful plum color stain. The metallic pink packaging is attractive and vibrant. These lipsticks are very comfortable to wear. But they do settle into fine lines. This makes a gorgeous shade for Fall and I already can’t stop wearing it enough. I am in love with this shade and will definitely repurchase this.

Colorbar Cocktail 3D Matte lipstick ~ Cosmopolitan : Review & Swatch

Colorbar launched 3D Matte range sometime ago and I bought the shade Cosmopolitan. I bought this lipstick purely on the insistence of SA and I donot regret it. This range was launched with 4 shades – African Brew, Cosmopolitan, Screw driver and Bloody Marie

Price: Rs 750 for 3.5 g

 

Colorbar Cocktail 3D Matte Lipstick Cosmopolitan Review

Colorbar 3D Matte lipsticks come in attractive orange cardboard packaging with cute pop art. The lipstick  is long and silver colored. The cap shuts tight with a click so there is no chance of cap coming off during travel. The shade name is sticker-ed at the bottom. The bullet is long and tip is slightly slanted. The pigmentation is amazing with full opaque coverage in one swipe itself. The name says 3D Matte (I don’t know what that means) but this is actually a creamy lipstick with glossy finish. It does not go matte and remains glossy. This makes it easy to transfer on cups etc. This lipstick stays on for 3-4 hours after which it fades into a beautiful pink stain. The color of stain left behind is so intense that it can be confused with a full fledged lipstick only.

Cosmopolitan is a bright and super vibrant pink color with warm tones. It gives an instant pop of color to your overall makeup. This will suit mostly fair to medium skin tones and it may look too bright on dusky skin. Even though this is a creamy lipstick and I am in matte lipstick phase right now, I donot regret buying this one bit and I reach out to apply this lipstick very often. Cosmopolitan is  a gorgeous summery shade.

However, Cocktail 3 D Matte range is bit pricey to be honest and one can find similar shades in other brands with lower price tag.

Overall, Colorbar Cocktail 3D Matte lipstick is neither 3 D, nor matte but it is a creamy and glossy lipstick. The pigmentation is amazing giving full coverage in one swipe. Being glossy it transfers to cups etc easily. It lasts for 3-4 hours before fading to an intense pink stain. Cosmopolitan 002 shade is vibrant pink color with warm tones which instantly adds pop of color to the overall makeup. The shade will suit fair to medium skin tones. However, the lipstick range is bit expensive and similar shades can be found in other brands.

Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid lipstick: 406 Nocturne ~ Review & Swatch

 

I have quite a few matte lipsticks and Chambor extreme wear Transfer proof liquid lipsticks are my absolute favorite. I have reviewed the shade 432 Red Haute before which is a gorgeous brick red color and in this post I am reviewing my all time favorite lip color : 406 Nocturne

I have reviewed another gorgeous matte red lipstick HERE

 

Price: Rs 845 for 6 ml

 

Chambor Extreme wear transfer proof liquid lipstick review

Chambor Extreme wear transfer proof liquid lipstick comes in a blue cardboard packaging with a shade number sticker on top. The packaging has all the details about the product. The lipstick tube packaging is flat and sleek with black screw cap. The liquid lipstick has elongated applicator which is easy to use. The applicator picks up enough product for one swipe. Being transparent, the shades are easy to spot if you have multiple shades. The shade number is sticker-ed on bottom of the tube. They do not have names to their shades, only numbers, which can get confusing sometimes.

Texture wise it is smooth and liquidy.  It feels like applying liquid on the lips.  These lipsticks are highly pigmented giving opaque coverage in single swipe. I still apply two swipes to be sure. Freshly applied, the texture looks glossy but it settles to true matte finish in sometime which does not budge. It is impressively long lasting (6 hours including meals and snacks), however, there is slight fading from inner rims when you eat something oily. It does not feel rubbery with touch up.

The liquid lipstick is highly pigmented which leaves room for errors while working along the outlines of the lips. I use a lip liner as I can never apply it properly.

Shade 406 Nocturne is a beautiful wine color with maroonish tinge. I fell in love with this shade the moment the SA swatched on my hand. If sexy and bold was a lipstick, 406 Nocturne would be its name. This shade brightens up complexion and will flatter all skin tones. Dusky beauties should definitely check this.

Like THIS lipstick I reviewed earlier, Chambor Extreme wear transfer proof liquid in shade 406 is perfect for Fall

 

These lipsticks are comfortable to wear and feel lightweight. It dries down to super matte finish and does not make the lips feel parched. Liquid lipsticks tend to make the lips feel dry but this lipstick is comfortable to wear all day long. Do exfoliate the lips before applying any matte lipstick as it will cling to the dry bits of the lips accentuating them even more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are looking for long lasting true matte lipstick in wine color, do check this one out. It is superbly pigmented, gives opaque coverage in one swipe. Shade 406 (Nocturne) is a gorgeous wine color with maroon hints which will work on all skin tones. Chambor extreme wear liquid lipstick feels lightweight and is quite comfortable to wear. Overall, I am in love with these lipticks and will definitely repurchase it when it gets over 😀
