Following on from the success of the nude colour range, L'Oreal are back with the Pure Red's collection. These have been out a while now but they caught my eye when wandering around Boots and you know what happened next!
 
There are four shades in the range, consisting of Blake's Red; a warm ruby red, Julianne's Red; a cool berry red, Liya's Red; a cool scarlet red and lastly Eva's Red; a warm brick red. Given my pale, cool skin tone and red hair I naturally thought that Julianne's Red would be my favourite. Surprisingly I went for the L'Oreal Color Riche Pure Reds in Eva's Red (£6.99) which I absolutely adore. I don't think I've ever worn a brick red before, but I find it suits my skin tone pretty well and its really appropriate for this time of year, cosy jumpers optional!
 
It's pretty hydrating even though this is actually a matte lipstick. I wasn't even aware it was a matte lipstick at first if I'm honest. This is most likely down to the jojoba oil which moisturises your lips and make this lipstick so comfortable to wear. It applies easily and doesn't feather, but it's not the most long lasting formula. That really doesn't bother me though, it certainly doesn't slip around my face which some lipsticks can do and that's really the last thing you want with a bright red lip!

I think for a £6.99 lipstick the packaging is pretty chic, the case has a leather-like texture and has a satisfying click. It certainly looks and feels more expensive than it is. As I like the warmness of Eva's Red so much I might have to pick up Blake's Red as well. That's what Boots Advantage Card points are there for right?

Have you tried the L'Oreal Colour Riche Pure Reds and if so what one did you go for?
