My Plum Obsession with L’Oreal Paris Lipsticks


Plum is undoubtedly the color of the season and its been a very strong trend this year, even in the summer collections! Whenever I want to try a particular color family, I always look towards the amazing lineup of L’Oreal Paris lipsticks! With their luxurious formulations and huge range of colors, you’re bound to find a hue that is perfect for you.

I’ve been loving playing around with the plum lipstick color family from L’Oreal Paris and I was amazed to discover how many shades they actually have in this color family! There are about 10 shades of plum ranging from sheer, rosy tones to deep, rich, full blooded plums. The softer plums are great for the day and the bolder colors add the perfect touch of drama and mystery to an evening look!

Some of my favorites are – Arabian Nights and Black Cherry from the Moist Matte and a new discovery – Intense Plum from the Color Riche range which I’m wearing below –

    Hi Ankita,

    I’ve been a regular visitor to your blog for years now. I’m sorry it took me so long to write to you.

    As a busy working mom-of-two, I’ve never really had the time to research brands and makeup, but thanks to your blog, I always have a ready reckoner whenever I need to buy something. Thanks for making my life so easy!

    I like your approach, the amount of research you put into each and every post (must be a helluva task!), and your balanced tone. What I love the most is your honesty and humility that shines through each and every post. Also, as a writer and editor, I appreciate your perfectly formatted, error-free, clean copy. A lot of bloggers overlook this important aspect and that can be such a turn-off.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I’m a big fan of Corallista and have been recommending your blog to my family and friends.

    Keep up the good work!

  16. November 14, 2015 / 1:17 pm

    Wow…i find it tough to carry plums…but u do it so gracefully..can you plz recommend any shade for my medium skin tone…something not very intense ??

  17. November 14, 2015 / 1:50 pm

    Plum is the kind of shade that looks beautiful if it co-ordinated with right kind of base makeup !

  18. November 14, 2015 / 3:25 pm

    I m slowly getting into deeper shades of lipsticks and I must agree that plum is my new favourite…

  19. November 14, 2015 / 3:43 pm

    Plum is not easy shade to carry. I would love to try Arabian nights.

  21. November 14, 2015 / 9:24 pm

    Great shades! Plum is actually a very flattering shade on warm skintone! I loved intense plum <3

  22. November 15, 2015 / 1:45 am

    Beautiful color, perfect for fall <3

  24. November 16, 2015 / 10:39 am

  25. November 16, 2015 / 2:14 pm

    I’m not a fan of plums coz they don’t suit me, but they look very good on you! Black cherry is a deep red color though…

  26. November 16, 2015 / 4:56 pm

    I am totally into Plums this year, moreso later part of 2015. What with the festive season and the beautiful fall/winter weather, it makes me feel so “plum” 🙂 Loving the Arabian night, Miss Claire Soft Matte in #18 so far…

  27. November 16, 2015 / 5:10 pm

    woah.. nice shades.. waiting for swatches now 🙂

  28. November 18, 2015 / 11:35 am

    Plum colour family is just perfect for fall and winter makeup. Indian skin tones can sport these with awesome effect round the year, ranging from lightest during summer or daytime to rich deep plum at night or winter. love this shade family!

      Hi Kruthi, Sonam's Pure Garnet has a more purple tone as compared to Lakme Milan Red.
