Ignore the hype–L’oreal Intense Fuchsia
Why am I telling you to ignore the hype? Because I see fuchsia is one of the IT colors in make up right now but that color is so beautiful and flattering it would be a shame to wear it just this season. Fu** trends, they are for people with no imagination.
Fact: L’oreal makes good lipsticks. I have tried and used up many of them and I have three in my stash at the moment. Definetly great quality and a really wide color selection – big plus for L’oreal. They are a bit pricey for a drugstore lipsticks but I cant say they are not worth it. (haha)
Intense Fuchsia is probably the most beautiful lipstick I have.I am in love with this shade! Too bad my camera cant capture a true color of this gem (but close enough) – it is still gorgeous on photos. Enjoy!
Photos are taken both under daylight and artificial light in hope I will be able to photograph the color but it was half successful…let your imagination flow or just go to nearest drugstore and check out L’oreal lipstick no. 288.
I did however managed to take a realistic photo of swatches. Check it out.
I guess I should tell something about lipstick itself, not just post pretty photos.
Well, texture is okay. It is a bit hydrating, enough not to make your lips look like a bright colored mess. I personaly like scent because it reminds me of my teenage years when I first came in contact with L’oreal lipsticks. Pigmetation is excelent, without a doubt. However, it stains lips. You will have to take it off with strong make up remover or at least exfoliate lips after wearing it. It would be a problem if you mess up white shirt with it, I honestly doubt it would come out without dry cleaning.
Swatches made on lips are taken under artificial light. When you take a look at it, it may seem like a fuchsia creme, but it has small flakes inside which give the lipstick additional gloss while wearing it. It still seems like creme on lips but an extra glossy creme, almost like you applied lipgloss over it.
See? Flakes are almost invisible but they give you a good wet lips effect. Sorry for crappy application, I was in a hurry.
Rate it? 9/10.-1 because of the staining.
What else to say? Nothing. You have seen it. You must love it. You need it. You must wear it. Go and buy it. Thank you for your cooperation.
