Lipsticks are my all-time best friend. No one can make me happy like a lipstick in this world. Many girl will relate them with me I know J yeah with not so many intro I am going to the main point now. Today I am going to review and shade my experience with the L’oreal Paris Cannes 2015 limited edition Swarovski lipstick in the shade- Maple Mocha.
My experience- Packaging- OMG OMG!!! This is the most interesting part of those lipsticks. Original Swarovski crystals are studded on the rose gold-colored mirror finished packaging. It makes them too gorgeous and classy. Color indicator is also there to find the exact shade of the lipsticks. They are further covered in a velvet box to keep them safe. And these total packaging comes in a further paper box pack. Super duper classy packaging in a single word.
Shade & texture– the shade is same as the previous maple mocha from moist matte collection. It is a very wearable earthy brown and I never tried this type of shade before. And voila! I am so happy that I’ve decided to buy this. This goes very well with smokey eyes too.
Texture is very light and smooth. I have never noticed any tugging or pulling during application.
Pigmentation, finish and staying power- well, though it is a light shade of brown but it gives opaque coverage. The color is light but super pigmented. Two swipes give full color on my lips. It imparts a soft matte finish and I don’t like glossy lipsticks. So mattes are my all-time favourite you know.
It stays on my lips around 4-5 hours without any meal but it can’t survive meals as it is a light shade. It doesn’t leave any stain on my lips as I always use lip balm before applying lipstick. Overall I am very happy with this.
- Very classy and sexy packaging
- Shade is also very subtle and good for smokey eyes
- Suits almost every skin tones
- Soft matte finish
- Good pigmentation
- Doesn’t bleed
- Price may be a con for some but I have sold seeing the packaging
- Old wine in a new bottle no new shade selection
- May break from base but not a con if you use carefully. It totally depends on your usage
RBS Rating- 4.5/5
Recommendation- I am very happy that I have bought these. Stay tuned for the review of blaze of red. If you love matte lipsticks these are just for you with such classy look. But you should avoid to carry it in direct sun in your handbag to avoid melting.
