It’s Day 3 of “ 31 Day Lipstick Challenge” on Blog and I am going to share this Lovely Coral pink shade from New L’Oreal Paris La Vie En Rose Moist Matte Collection. I decided to share two lipstick posts on Day 3 as both the lipsticks belong to same collection. This collection was launched in US/UK in 2014 as L’Oreal Paris Privee Collection although with some variation in shades . L’oreal Privee Collection received mixed response as far as the formula was concerned but allured beauty addicts all across the globe for the high end packaging.
In India L’Oreal “Life through Pink glasses “ ( closest anglicized meaning of La Vie En Rose) collection is launched as Moist Matte Range. I have always loved the Moist Matte Lipsticks and was struck by color intense formula of Star Reds. So I weighed all my expectations against the previous formulas and chose this vibrant coral pink lipstick-Blake’s Delicate Rose.

L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pinks- Blake’s Pink Review
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pinks aka La Vie En Rose Moist Matte Lipsticks are packaged in black matte case with reflective golden accents. Each shade is designed around a specific skin tone. All seven shades launched are “Pinks” inspired from different skin tones of celebrities. With this packaging , L’Oreal has excelled itself and has raised the bar by creating luxury looking high end designing for these lipsticks. Only hassle with this rubberized finish is magnetic attraction for oil and grime. I loved the cut of the Lipstick bullet also. Lipstick shuts tight and is travel safe.
La Vie En Rose Blake’s Delicate Rose is vibrant coral pink which will suit fair to medium skin complexions with cooler undertones. Going further on skin tones, it will befit medium skin tones around NC42 or lesser. Deeper than NC 42 /Olive skin tones may find this shade “out of place” or slightly neon. Texture is comfortable to wear but can accentuate flaky patches on dry lips.My lips are slightly dry these days so tested these on moisturizing claim. On my lips, it rolls without a tug but does not moisturize to soothen up my lips. It is “just comfortable” to apply and wears without any lip softening.It has mild floral fragrance signature of L’Oreal Color Riche Lipsticks.Lipstick has fine gold iridescent particles which are barely visible.
Blake’s Delicate Rose gives sheer wash of color on my lips in single wipe. I get full blown color in 3-4 swipes. Shade can look fluorescent on medium skin tones too on over swiping which is pretty much possible with this lipstick given to sheer pigmentation. Also if you have pigmented lips, shade may not show up true to swatch. It is light weight and gives velvety matte finish given to mother of pearl infusion. Lipstick lasts on me for 3-4 hours and it looks patchy on fading. It disappears completely leaving behind light pink tint on my lips which goes out easily with any makeup remover.
- Exfoliate and moisturize your lips for uniform application and counteracting fine line prominence.
- Use MAC prep +prime before applying this lipstick.
VANILLA RATINGS 7/10
“Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.”
I expected lot from Star Pinks after really good experience with Moist Matte and Pure Star Reds, in fact with L’Oreal Color Riche overall. May be both the shades I picked have average pigmentation with patchy disappearance. I seriously missed the cult intense pigmentation of Color Riche Range. May be “Delicate Rose” in the label was to indicate the relatively sheer finish. Blake’s Pink has sheer pigmentation but gives complete opacity in 3-4 swipes. Some of you may find it flashy fluorescent. It is a vibrant coral pink which is perfect for summer and spring ahead.
Fair to medium skin toned beauties with minimal lip pigmentation should consider opting for this vivid pink lipstick. I think JLo’s and Liya’s Pink will suit Indian Complexions best.
