Review:L'oreal Color Riche Lipstick Velvet Rose

Hello Girls

Hows everything?
Some days back I posted a Press Release about L'oreal.
This summer L'oreal has introduced 12 enchanting new shades in the shape of L'oreal Color Riche Lipstick.
Color is Back! There’s only one rule; re-invent yourself with L’Oreal Paris Color Riche!

Today I am reviewing one of these beauties.I recieved two of these lipsticks.One from their Natural shades called Velvet Rose & the other from the Intense shades called Perfect Red.
WHAT L'OREAL HAS TO SAY ABOUT COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK:
Experience the intense, natural and boosting serum lip shades through L’Oreal Paris Color Riche where the L’Oréal Laboratories have selected only the purest and finest color pigments, combined uniquely with Omega 3 and Vitamin E to moisturise lips for smooth application and for comfortable wear. L’Oréal Paris Color Riche has a wide range of assertive, intense, vivid, radiant colors which are once again in vogue.

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche is made of rich ingredients and pigments that impart purity and intensity to every woman’s complexion and comes in a wide range of shades and hues that go beyond red to include orange, fuchsia, purple, brown and the ever-popular beige tones.
.
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT L'OREAL COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK:
As L'oreal is one of my favorite drug store brands I was quite excited to hear about the launch of their new lipstick shades.Pinks & Nudes have always been my favorites.
So now that I got the option to review one of these two shades I have reviewed & swatched VELVET ROSE from the NATURAL shades.
Here is a look at it:
The shade is double swatched here.Its a lovely pink shade that appeals a lot to me.I fell in love with the shade even before I applied it to my lips.
The texture of the lipstick is very creamy & even one single application feels like you have applied the lipstick twice.Here is how the lipstick looks on my lips:
another one:

This particular shade appeared neither too glossy nor too matte on my lips,but if you want to achieve a more MATTE look blot it with a tissue paper.
                                                        Velvet Rose & Perfect Red
The staying power of this lipstick is also good.It stays for around 4-5 hrs without eating anything but in any case I always want to retouch my lipstick after an hour or two so to me the lasting power doesn't matter much.
I would have been more happier if L'oreal would have redesigned the packaging of the lipstick as it is the signature L'oreal square packaging & I do love changes.

The name & number of the lipstick is mentioned at the bottom whereas the shade number is at the top.
This lipstick provides medium to full coverage.I will include this shade in my daily wear lipsticks as I love to wear pinks in my daily routine.
Priced at PKR 1,400, L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Lipstick is now available at all L’Oréal Paris counters across Pakistan.
Now you all must be wondering why havent I swatched the Perfect Red Lipstick....so the Good news is that I am giving away this other Color Riche lipstick in a Giveaway starting 1st June 2012.
Wooohhoooo...isnt that awesome...Thanks to Lotus PR for sponsoring this giveaway.Link here


Stay Tuned for more details about the giveaway soon.
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay Happy Always.
Love,

Review:Liz Earle's Botanical Essence No.1

Hello Girls
How Have you been?
How are the summers going on?Whats on your mind on a hot day!Something to keep you fresh all day!
Perfumes & deodorants are a must item for your hand bag in summers.Today I am reviewing a perfume,one that is bound to make you feel fresh on a hot & sweaty day.
Yes its the Liz Earle Botanical Essence No.1 Perfume.


~LIZ EARLE'S FRAGRANCE STORY~
For our first ever fine fragrance, we've used the finest natural botanical ingredients from around the world and the expert skills of a distinguished perfumer from Grasse, France. We gave him the time to indulge in this age-old art, skilfully hand-crafting this complex scent with true passion to create a vibrant, sparkling fragrance translating into warmth and sensuality.
Like many classically made fragrances, Liz Earle Botanical Essence No.1 consists of three different sets of 'notes' which are gradually released over time.
When you first spray our fragranc, you get an immediate hit of the fresh, citrus notes which instantly lift your spirits and senses. After about 20 minutes, these top notes begin to fade and the heart of the fragrance is revealed with warm, softer floral notes. Finally, the warm, woody base notes develop, helping to give the fragrance its lasting power.
~WHAT LIZ EARLE HAS TO SAY ABOUT BOTANICAL ESSENCE NO.1~
Over 98% directly derived from natural ingredients, this unique fragrance is a complex blend of 14 of the finest botanicals, carefully sourced from around the world with the help of Laboratoire Monique Remy, a company which shares our passion for natural ingredients and produces the highest quality essential oils and absolutes. Some of the botanicals in our fragrance, such as mandarin orange, are new to us, but others like high-altitude lavender you may already recognise from our Hand Repair, Superskin Concentrate and Superbalm. To help us craft this sensuous Eau de Parfum, we turned to the age-old art of perfumery and enlisted the help of distinguished French perfumer Jean-Charles Niel.


This creative process gave me the time and the opportunity to craft a fragrance working with the highest quality ingredients. Using the Instant Boost Skin Tonic as a starting point, I looked into the glamour of the brand and Liz's image to create a vibrant, sparkling floral with a beautiful rose at its heart, translating into warmth and sensuality for the dry down.Jean Charles Niel, Perfumer
 ~WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT LIZ EARLE'S BOTANICAL ESSENCE NO.1 ~
I love the packaging of Liz Earle products & this fragrance is no different.It comes packed up in a gift like pull out box.


The smell of the perfume is indeed very botanical.Just feels like you have had a walk in a botanical garden!
It has that lime & tingling citrus smell on the first spray that freshens up my senses.Then after some time a mix of spicy fragrance takes over & later on leaves behind a lovely light floral smell.Overall its a mixture of many different notes of fragrances.This mixture makes it unique & thats why I love it as it gives me a sense of variety in one bottle.


I guess this will be one of my favorite perfume for this summer as its botanical quality makes it a perfect to be worn in summers.Its lasting power is quite satisfying as it lasts for about 6-7 hours.
The perfume can be called unisex & is suitable for young & old alike.It can be worn on a regular basis.Some may like it but others may not as its not very fruity or floral but overall it liftens up my mood & spirits & thats why I love it.
Its priced at £45 for a 50 ml spray bottle which I dont classify as very expensive if compared to other branded perfumes.
Verdict:
I would love to recommend this perfume to people who love light refreshing perfumes that tantalizes your sense of smell with its variable tones.

Any comments and questions are welcomed.
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay Happy always.
