She is the talk of the town after her first appearance at the Cannes Film Festival 2014. Forget the Roberto Cavalli gown! My eyes didn't even travel down when I first saw her. Even now I don't really know what the cut is like. Her face, hair & makeup were what made her look....especially the red lips!
When the lipstick isn't blotted, it looks a little bit balmy like here & in the pic below.....
The rest of her makeup was pretty basic:
Face: Matte foundation topped with matte pressed powder. Maybe L'Oreal Infallible range.
Cheeks: A rosy pink matte powder blush. Probably one of the L'Oreal True Match Blushers.
Eyes: Looks like a shimmery taupe eyeshadow (you can see the shimmers flying about in pic above) that appears almost greyish, black winged gel eyeliner & full false lashes to complete the classic look. Bottom lash line was kept almost bare with only a coat of mascara on lashes.
Lipstick is L'Oreal Color Riche Moist Matte in Lincoln Rose. Aishwarya Rai is one of the brand ambassadors of L'Oreal Paris, so why would they use any other brand? When L'Oreal Paris India posted a collage of the products used on Ash, which included this lipstick, I thought 'Really???', but after I swatched it at the store, all doubt was erased. It is the lipstick, at least imo. Lincoln Rose is one of those red lipsticks that look almost tomato-ey red, but there's a hint of pink that stops it from being that definitive.
Here, I applied-blotted-reapplied-blotted 3 times. After seeing the pics, I think 4 times would have been better.

I LOVE the finish of this lipstick! Very comfortable. You can layer as much as you want, and it won't look flaky. Plus, these Moist Matte lippies are not scented like most of the other L'Oreal lippies, they are fragrance-free. It does stain lips when it wears off. One of the best matte lipsticks I own.
Price of L'Oreal Color Riche Moist Matte Lipsticks ~ Rs.899.
What do you think? Love this red lippy or not?
P.S. This is one of the lipsticks I've bought as part of my "Last Drink" before my Lipstick Ban officially begins next month =D (....and yes, I want more Moist Matte lippies too *sighs*)
