L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick Arabian Night Review

Hello Beauties!!!

This particular review was pending for a long time and today I finally took out time to write it. Phewww!!!  The L’oreal Color Riche Moist Matte lipsticks have been around for a while now and everyone is going gaga over it across the web in fact recently L’oreal even ran the #mycolorobsession campaign all across to promote these beauties yet I feel this particular shade “Arabian Nights” hasn’t gained enough popularity as some of the other shades from this range, though I wonder why.
Okay so some more gyaan on these lipsticks from the maker…A lipstick that delivers intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. Colour Riche Moisture Matte’s unique formula contains jojoba oil for unrivaled moisture and comfort along with matte gel technology to create an intense matte look.
My Take:  At the L’oreal counter when the SA first swatched this shade I felt it was too dark and that I may not be able to carry it off too well so I left the store without buying this one but there was something about the “Arabian Nights” and it ran through my head all day. The very next day I went back to the store and this time tried the colour on my lips and oh my I instantly fell in love with it. For almost a week I wore it every single day. Believe me I even wore it to work one day J
Anyhow!!! Arabian Nights is a gorgeous deep plum lipstick that will suite all skin tones. In the bullet case it looks very very dark.. but when you apply it on lips the shade is to die for. And especially with winters approaching having a shade like this is a must.
Like all other moist matte lipsticks from L’oreal this one too is very soft, creamy and smooth to apply. There is no pulling or tugging during application and thought is it a matte lipstick the unique formula ensures your lips do not feel dry but as is the case with most matte lipsticks this one too shows off the fine lines after a while if your lips are not well hydrated or moisturized before applying the lipstick. This lipstick is highly pigmented and even a single pass gives a good colour payoff. The staying power of this lipstick is very good. The lipsticks stays as is for upto 8 hours even with some amount of snacking in between however after a full meal it does fade slightly and may need touch up if you want the same bold, intense colour.
In terms of packaging the lipstick comes in a standard golden bullet with a colour button on the front bottom that shows off the colour inside to help identify the shade. The packaging of the L’oreal lipsticks is by far the best in this range. The lipstick is travel friendly and my only word of caution is to keep it away from sun or being too warm as these tend to break.
Overall I feel everyone should have at least one bold lipstick in their stash and if you want something that instantly lifts your face and enhances the look just a notch higher then Arabian  Nights is the one you should own. Trust me it’s such an attention grabber and  has become my go to lipstick these days. I am loving it a little too much. ;)
