About  L’Oreal Paris Anti-Aging Serum Lipstick Desperately Mauve 501

New L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Anti-Age Serum is our first lipstick specifically enhanced with a powerful anti-age serum. The serum contains Collagen and Pro-xylane, key anti-ageing ingredients that hydrate and re-densify the lips with every application. Your lips look re-plumped with immediate definition and brilliant colour.

Unique Features-

  • Hyaluronic Acid: known for its hydrating and re-plumping properties, it helps enhance lip moisturisation while plumping and smoothing the surface of the lips.
  • Pro-xylane: developed from seven years of research by the L’Oréal Laboratories, this ultra-powerful compound is designed to strengthen the structural cohesion of skin cells and re-densify tissues.
  • Collagen: naturally present in the lips, Collagen supports the proper organisation of the skin cell matrix thus ensuring lip firmness and fullness.

Price– $9.99 You can buy Loreal lipsticks from Flipkart.com here .

Packaging– The packaging of these lipsticks is a little disappointing as the silver case looks a little cheap. The golden rim at the center of the lipstick case has the name of the brand inscribed on it. The cap has a semi-transparent design which gives an idea of the shade. The lipstick cap shuts with a clasp but doesn’t shuts too tightly.

The shade name and number is written at the base of the lipstick.

Shade & Texture- The shade Desperately Mauve is basically a mauve shade with very light undertones of plum shade in it. In the swatch it looks more gradient towards the berry shades but on the lips it comes out to be a beautiful shade and suits my skin tone very well.

The texture of this lipstick is creamy and glides easily without any lip balm beneath. However the shade has a frosty finish and tends gives a soft sheen under natural light which looks good.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Anti-Aging Serum Lipstick Desperately Mauve:

I have been loving the shades I have tried till now as they look really natural and let the perfect radiance and glow of the face reflect beautifully with this lip shade.

This shade has light undertones of berry shade which is more evident in the swatches and so I was not very sure whether this would look good on me. But I am really glad that this shade suited my skin tone very well.

The shade has a frosty finish which gives a soft sheen in natural and artificial light. The shade is really a go to shade and will suit all those beauties who have medium to fair skin tones. Dusky beauties may not be able to flaunt the shade so much due to the frosty finish.

The shade is a perfect everyday wear shade and it can be easily worn to the office. The staying power of this shade is not that much and will fade easily in 1-1.5 hours on eating & drinking.

A smoky eye makeup will look really great with this lip shade.
