L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Star Matte Red Lipsticks

Until rather recently, I've been super obsessed with perfecting the ultimate brows (more on another post). What better way to glorify good brow days than by wearing an equally stunning, matte red lippie, yes? There are spanking perfect days when I can just don brows and lips while most require some serious oil control and a touch of blush just like today:

My Monday essentials. What's yours?

The highlight of today's look is the super bright, DNB (thanks, Ronda!) lippie from the L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Star Matte Reds range (Php 625 each) called Pure Ruby. It's a clean, true red shade that works wildly well with my fading red hair and medium complexion. There are a total of 8 lippies (in HK only 6 were released while other Asian countries just got 7 shades) from this collection and I'd love to show you what we've got in our shores!

Ready to take a closer look at the shades together with the stars wearing them like signatures? :)

Pure Amaranthe (by Gong Li), Pure Brick (by Aishwarya Rai), Pure Fire (by Li Bingbing), Pure Garnet (by Sonam Kapoor)

Pure Rouge (by Freida Pinto), Pure Ruby (by Chompoo Araya), Pure Scarleto (by Blake Lively), Pure Vermeil (by Fan Bingbing)

What surprised me with this range is that the lippies stay on for about 4-5 hours. They leave a nice and even stain on the lips without the nasty rings (truly a big yay!). The formula's pleasantly non-drying, super comfortable to wear, and not heavily scented too.  If I'm shopping for a couple of shades myself, I'll likely zero in  Pure Ruby, Pure Vermeil, and Pure Garnet first.

Here's a lovely swatch bar from Heart Bows & Makeup. She's from India and they didn't have Pure Ruby released there.

Are you all over this range like I am? What are your favourite shades above? :)
