L'Oreal Paris L'Or Sunset Collection lipstick 'Pink Passion' swatch & review

The L'Or Sunset Collection from L'Oreal Paris is already a rage in the market. From lipsticks to nail polishes to eye liners, this collection has created quite a hype. One such product from the collection is Color Riche Lipstick in 'Pink Passion'.



Packaging:

All Color Riche lipsticks are nestled in shiny golden squarish cases. These lipsticks have a sticker indicating the shade inside should suit brunettes i.e black/dark haired women. Shouldn't we be matching our lipsticks to suit our skintone ??




Shade:

Pink Passion is almost neon pink with visible hints of coral. I may not have been able to get the color correct in my pics but that's how it looks on me.



Texture:

Pink Passion is an extremely soft and creamy lipstick. In fact all the L'Oreal Color Riche lipsticks are too soft. I am always scared that they will break off from the bullet base. Unfortunately, Pink Passion was broken from the bullet base when I received it. There is no shimmer/glitter and all that nonsense.



Application & Longevity:

It is very creamy to apply but you need to be careful to get even coverage. Some lip area may be look sheerer than the rest. Pink Passion lasts good if you don't disturb the application by eating anything. It lasts a good hour after a meal as well but the creamy lipstick look is gone and a pink stain  is left behind. So a total of 3-4 hours is the wear time.




Price: Rs. 825/4.7 gms.

Rating: 4.5/5 happi :)

I am absolutely in love with this color. It is vibrant yet chic. My favourite way to wear this lipstick is with a neutral eye and sheer pink blush. This lets my lips do the talking ;)
