Blogmas 2014: #11 L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds (Blake)

Happy Christmas Party day readers!

Ok, so it might not be the Christmas party for all of you, but tonight I shall be cruising the Thames with my fellow bean counters - imbibing more wine than is healthy, talking more loudly than should be permitted and (I sincerely hope) seeing some cheesy dancing to hits such as Wham's Last Christmas.

Getting me through all of this, with a Christmas themed smile on my face shall be one of the latest offerings from L'Oreal in the form of Blake Lively's contribution to the Pure Reds collection.

This collection aims to show that all gals can wear a red, it's just a matter of picking the right one for you. Luckily with the reference palette of four celebs it's easy to reference which will be right for you. Admittedly it may seem strange that I've picked the blonde contribution - but I really am part zombie in terms of natural paleness!

I loved the Blake red on sight and rushed off to Boots to buy it. These lippies are £6.99, with a matte finish and a long-wearing formula.

Despite being matte these are incredibly comfortable on the lip - not at all drying and in fact not (to me at least) feeling any different to the finish of their normal cream lipsticks.

Run, ladies, run. Grab yourself one while as soon as you can - it's pretty much universal in the beauty blogosphere, so far as I can see, that these can compete with the high end formulations.

Til tomorrow kitty kats…love, hugs and massive red lipstick kisses on your cheeks under the mistletoe!

  1. I saw this today and loved the look of it? How long lasting did you find it?

    1. Very long lasting - I managed to keep it on through a meal (although I touched up afterwards). I'd also used liner the whole way underneath the lip so maybe that helped too - it was just a Barry M liner so nothing fancy! xx
