I was so happy to get this entire range by L’Oreal Paris as red is one color that I love to sport for the evening makeup. I have already reviewed this range on the other blog but I so wanted to share with the readers of this blog too to check out this beautiful L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipsticks collection. You may have seen the latest advertisements of these lipsticks by Aishwarya Rai introducing the range in India. The interesting thing about this L’Oreal Paris collection star pure reds lipsticks range is that they are launched in 7 shades and every shade is custom made by taking inputs from the L’Oreal Paris brand ambassadors like Sonam, Frieda, Blake Lively, Aishwarya Rai and others.

As these are 7 lipsticks, I will first of all define and describe the shades then I would share the basic features of these lipsticks like the staying span, pigmentation etc.
Views on L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipsticks
These lipsticks come in a black plastic case with a squarish shape in the middle that shows the color inside, I find it very helpful else I would have to take off the cap, twist up the lipstick and then see if that is the color I wanted. I like the packaging as it also bears the signatures of the L’Oreal Paris Brand Ambassadors. This is what also makes the lipsticks look classy and elegant in packaging. Other than the celebrity names, these lipcolors also have numbers like CSR1, CSR 2 to CSR 8. and names like Pure Rouge, Pure scarleto etc. CSR 5 is missing from the collection in India.
Okay, so let me describe the shades of these L’Oreal Paris collection star pure reds lipsticks.
1. L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick CSR 1 Pure Fire (Li Bingbing)
Pure Fire by Li Bingbing, is a beautiful orange based red lip color with very fine gold shimmers in it. The gold shimmers are not visible but they add a beautiful dimension when this lipstick is applied on the lips. This would be a great color for girls who like to wear bold lip color but not the usual reds. This will look beautiful on dusky and medium Indian skin tones.
2. L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick CSR 2 Pure Vermeil ( Fan Bingbing)
Pure Vermeil is a beautiful pinkish color which can also be referred as a pink based red. This is again is stunning color which can be worn with Indian wear or for a evening party. Such colors are good to brighten the shallow complexion.
3. L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick CSR 3 Pure Amaranthe (Gong Li)
Pure Amaranthe is a lovely and interesting red with fuchsia hues. This has a very beautiful and rich velvety finish which made me love this lipstick as soon as I applied it. This will look good on all the skin colors and I think this color will look more pink on duskier skin tones. This is also a color that a bride can wear for the wedding.
4. L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick CSR 4 Pure Garnet (Sonam Kapoor)
Pure garnet is Sonam Kapoor’s shade. This lipstick shade is a rich deep berry color which is more like a wine color. This color looks beautiful on mature ladies as I find such color can make one look older than they are. I guess you know what I mean. This is not my kinda color but indeed beautiful.
5. L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick CSR 6 Pure Scarleto (Blake Lively)
Pure scarleto is Blake Lively’s color and is a true red with no orange, pink or any other color peeking through. This is very creamy and applies beautifully to give a rich matte finish. If you love a pure red then this is your color.
6. L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick CSR 7 Pure Rouge (Freida Pinto)
Pure Rouge is the color by Freida Pinto. This is a deep red shade. I like such colors to be best suitable for Indian bridal wear or for the Indian weddings. I am wearing this color in my pictures in this post and my contact picture. :)
7. L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Pure Reds Lipstick CSR 8 Pure Brick (Aishwarya Rai)
Pure Brick is Aishwarya Rai’s color and as I absolutely love her, I knew that this is her color as I have seen her wearing such brick red colors in a lot of her movies and appearances. This color is not true red but as bold as a red color. This too will suit all the Indian complexions especially for the medium wheatish skin color.
General Features about these L’Oreal Paris Collection Star Lipsticks
These Pure red lipsticks are totally matte and velvety in texture. I like the creaminess and the way they glide on the lips. they will glide so swiftly on the lips that I feel they have powder like formula. They are rich in pigmentation yet super matte. When we think of matte lipsticks, we assume that they will be drying, but these lipsticks are hydrating and non drying. They feel very light weight on the lips. The only thing is that they will feather a bit from the outer edges that you can prevent by using a lip liner. You can also read how to apply/ wear a dark lipstick perfectly.
