L’Oreal Paris Collection Star by Freida in Pure Rouge

Whenever I go out, I always make sure I bring 3 to 5 lipsticks in my make up bag and that includes a red lipstick.

Sometimes, all you need is a red lipstick to brighten up your face. During my lazy days which happens to be most of the time lols, I always go for bold brows and red lips then I am good to go.

So for today’s review, I will be sharing my current favorite red lipstick which is the L’oreal Paris Collection Star by Freida in Pure Rouge. I Purchased this at Landmark Trinoma for a discounted price, can’t remember the exact amount though but I think it was 300php below during the L’Oreal Sale Madness last March.

L’Oreal Paris Collection Star by Freida in Pure Rouge comes with a sleek black and gold packaging with a colored square that indicates the lipstick shade.  

The shade Pure Rouge is included in the Pure Red Collection which consists of 7 gorgeous red tone lipsticks inspired each by one of L’Oreal ambassadors. Pure Rouge is Freida Pinto’s shade (third from the right).


Pure Rouge is a cool toned red that matches everyone’s skin tone. I love how gorgeous it looks on Freida’s deeper complexion.  

It has a smooth velvety texture that glides on my lips without tugging. It sets to semi-matte finish which I love and doesn’t emphasize my lip lines nor makes my lips dry.

Pure Rouge is wearable both for daytime and nighttime look.

Using a red lip liner would be best to achieve your perfect red lips.


Here I used Nichido’s Lip Pencil in Blaze before I put on my lipstick. I find it comfortable to wear, however, since it has a semi-matte finish, I experienced bleeding and transferring. Longevity-wise, this can survive a meal without retouching as it leaves a stain on the lips.



If you are looking for a budget-friendly red lipstick, I highly recommend this baby!

  1. I never really got the hang of wearing lipstick, much less very red ones. The only time I get to wear lipstick is when I need to be fully made up for an event. 😛 I'm a lip balm girl 🙂 But the color looks great on you.
