L’Oreal Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Review

Red lips are just the one. Whatever skin-tone you have, a Red lip will always turn heads (in the right sense, of course) and L’Oreal’s Collection Exclusive range of Red lipsticks have definitely caught my attention and I love every single one of them! 

You’ve seen the advert, you know what I’m talking about but have you tried any of them yet?! I was lucky enough to win a Vampy Makeup kit from L’Oreal back in November and the 4 Pure Red Lipsticks were included, how amazing? I was instantly drawn to Blakes shade, a vibrant, bright Red but the other 3 are all beautiful too; Juliannes more Berry Red is made to suit a more cooler skin tone, Liya’s shade is a little deeper toned for darker skin and Eva’s shade is a warm, brick red suited for olive, more tanned skin. All lipsticks have a Matte finish but are super hydrating too! Available at Boots £6.99 each.

Pure Red Lipsticks

(P.s. I am aware the lighting here does no justice to the lipstick colours but to get the colours to show differently was really hard. Will try and upload a further picture soon!) 

I have worn Blakes Red pretty much every single day in December and when wearing it to work (up to 8 hour shifts), I’ve never had to re-apply it! It’s the only lipstick I can actually go without worrying about for the whole day unless I’ve eaten something really messy and have lipstick smeared across my face... The staying power of all 4 of these lipsticks is incredible. They’re not drying either and for someone who has dry lips no matter what I put on them, it’s one thing that’ll make me repurchase them time after time. 

Have you tried any of the colours, if not, which is your favourite? 


  1. These look gorgeous. Love the packaging too, has a could be designer look!
