Lipstick is women’s best friend. Why not? It brings a pop of color on a boring and dull day and suddenly everything is okay. There are endless shades to choose from given the variety however red is my all time favorite.
Off late, I tried two different matte red lipsticks from two different brands, L’oreal and Make Up For Ever. In this post I will review both the lipsticks and compare to get a better understanding on which one would be the best buy.
L’oreal launched variety of red shades for different skin tone, however this shade was suitable for all skin types.
Being a red color it might bleed however this can be resolved by using a red lip pencil and filling in the lips. Another technique is to use a concealer to clean the edges.
We all know the down side of matte based lipstick, as they aren’t moisturizing and we end up dabbing lip balms on top of the lipstick to prevent them from cracking. On the contrary, I realized that this lipstick was moisturizing for a perfectly long time.
Another red lipstick that happened to catch my eye was from Make Up For Ever and I asked my friend traveling to States to get that for me.
I tried and liked the color as its deep red that happens to suit dusky skin tone (or it suits this skin tone in my view). The shade was quite similar but the formula seem different.
Lipstick bleeding is another issue which this one doesn’t seem to resolve. Also, this is more likely to leave a stain if gets in contact with any cloth so be careful.
Altogether, both the products are great. Both of them have great packaging, lipstick formula is highly pigmented and the red shade is suitable for all kind of skin tones.
Hope you enjoyed this review. Please like and comment below for any suggestions. Let me know what product do you want me to review next.
Till then, keep shining <3
