Hi lovely ladies,
L’Oreal is an amazing brand when it comes to makeup. I especially love the lipsticks. They have such luxurious and glamorous feel to them. Few months back, I purchased 2 moist matte shades, Raspberry Syrup and Arabian Nights from their color riche collection.
Let’s find out how these colours fared for me!
Price: INR 899/- (Available at some great discounts online now!)
A lipstick that delivers intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. Color Riche Moisture Matte’s unique formula contains jojoba oil for nrivalled moisture and comfort along with matte gel technology to create an intense matte look.Velvet matte gel technology is combined with deep pigments and Jojoba oil to give a deep color pay-off, maintaining ultimate moisture and comfort.
I just love the packaging of the lipsticks. Lipsticks come in a golden case which feels slightly metallic to me. The color of the lipstick is marked in the front in a button like shape. So if you have many lipsticks from the range, it is easier to identify the shade you are looking for! The cap shuts with a click also shade name and number is mentioned at the bottom too.
This is bright pink shade which instantly brightens up the face. It may look like it is difficult to pull off but it actually looks nice on fair to medium skin tones really well.
This is a beautiful berry shade with slightly deep maroon undertones. This is a bold shade and is perfect for fall/winter makeup routine. This colour is perfect for medium to dusky skin tones.
Texture and Pigmentation
Lipsticks come with amazing texture. They are a breeze to apply. Lipsticks go on smoothly with no tugging or pulling. The pigmentation is superb. You get full on colour intensity in single swipe. Too much layering can lead to cakeyness and heavy lips. These can be slightly drying after few hours so lip exfoliation is a good idea.
Both the lipsticks have amazing staying power. They are amazingly pigmented. Raspberry Syrup stays on easily for 4-5 hours while Arabian Nights have stayed on me for more than 5+ hours.
Pros of L’Oreal Paris Raspberry Syrup and Arabian Nights Moist Matte Lipstick:
- Shades are extremely wearable
- Arabian nights is perfect fall/winter shade
- Raspberry syrup instantly brightens up the face
- Travel friendly and sturdy packaging
- Both are long lasting
- Amazing pigmentation
- Do not settle in lines
- Suitable for variety of skin tones

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Raspberry Syrup and Arabian Nights Moist Matte Lipstick:
- These can be slightly drying so exfoliating your lips is a must
- They are slightly on the pricier side
Both shades are really pretty, raspberry syrup is a beautiful hot pink shade which is really wearable and if you are into darker and vampy shades then look no further than Arabian nights.
