Here at the Candy HQ, we're all huge fans of red lipstick and we're always on the hunt for the perfect shade to suit and flatter all our skin tones. Which is why when we got the chance to try the latest Color Riche Collection Star Matte Reds by L'Oreal Makeup Designer, we knew we just had to share the great news with you! The collection comes in 8 different red shades that are suited for Asian skin tones! Plus, they're all so pigmented and don't dry your lips despite the finish being matte. Aside from the creamy texture and high color pay-off, another thing that won us over is the fact that they're super wearable for every day.
Being a morena myself, I wanted to test just how true it is that all 8 shades flatter all Asian skin tones! I tried on all 8 and I'm happy to report that they all matched my skin tone perfectly! Don't believe the myth that tanned girls don't look great in a red lip. Go ahead and swipe on your favorite hue! Scroll down to see the different shades on the tube and on me as I tested them out for you to see just how great and versatile they are.
1 Pure Fire
This shade is the brightest one as it's a red-orange hue that will definitely make your lips pop! It's the perfect lippie for extra sunny days and it has the power to give you a bit of sunkissed glow. It's also best for when you want to make a statement with your makeup.
2 Pure Vermeil
This shade is also a bright red with a more pinkish undertone. If you're a little scared of wearing a red lip, this hue is the perfect starter lipstick! It's got just the right amount of pop that will make you fall in love with swiping on a red lip.
3 Pure Amaranthe
If you're a big fan of pink lipstick, this is the best shade to ease you into transitioning to reds. The red-pink hue is very feminine and will go well with a cat eye and light pink cheeks.
4 Pure Scarleto
For a slightly deeper but subtle red, this shade is for you! This specific lippie is a favorite of Blake Lively and we totally understand why! It's got enough of a blue undertone to it that makes it stand out more, especially after swiping it on.
5 Pure Rouge
If you're a big red lipstick fan, you're definitely going to love this shade! Leaning towards a more wine-red hue, this lippie is perfect for when you don't feel like wearing too much makeup because it will dress up your entire look all on its own. Plus, it's still got a bright tone to it to make it wearable for day.
6 Pure Brick
If you're into the whole '90s trend, this mauve-red shade is the one for you. The brown tinge also makes it extremely perfect for every day—day or night! It's also another shade perfect for girls trying out red lipstick for the first time.
7 Pure Ruby
This shade is a little similar to the Pure Rouge shade except it's got more of a purple undertone, making it slightly darker and perfect for girls who aren't afraid to go deeper with their red pucker. Try on this shade during your next girls night out and pair with long, full lashes!
8 Pure Garnet
This deep plum-red shade has proven to be a crowd favorite because of how perfectly pigmented it is! Plus, it's not easy to find a shade like this that suits Asian skin. The purple undertone is just enough to make a subtle statement while still being a super wearable lipstick that's extra fun to swipe on.
We believe that every girl should never be without a red lipstick, because it's the best way to dress up any outfit. And it really does make you feel extra good about yourself by simply swiping it on. So go ahead and try one or all! Each lipstick is only P400 and you can buy it at your nearest Watson's or at the beauty section of any deparment store.
