What could be better than receiving a surprise gift in the mail from a beautiful friend!? Well, that’s what happened to me yesterday and not only did I get a beautiful Postcard, I got an absolutely stunning lipstick! I knew straight away that I had to share this with you all!
The lipstick itself is a L’Oreal Color Riche Matte called Mistinguette in 131, it’s truly a unique colour – I’ve not got another lipstick like it! It’s a warm hot pink almost coral shade and it’s absolutely stunning. Not only is the shade beautiful, but the lipstick itself goes on so smoothly, it’s a matte finish but almost has a glossy texture – just wonderful and long lasting!
To me it’s simply classic colour and perfect to wear for any occasion. A lot of the lipsticks worn in the 1950s were actually a pinkish shade as that was the only way for the shade to look red on Technicolor. Red wasn’t the only shade to wear, stars like Diana Dors and Jayne Mansfield often wore pink! It actually reminds me of the lipstick Elizabeth Taylor wears in her Oscar Winning Role, BUtterfield 8 in 1960.
I absolutely adore the gold packaging too, I’m such a fan of gold cased lipsticks as they remind me of the vintage ones from the 1940s and 1950s! Plus, it sure makes the product stand out and is very complimentary to the shade of lipstick. I’ve always thought L’Oreal was a wonderful brand, I’ve got quite a few of their products and I definitely intend to get more!
