Thanks god for great friends, they can possibly read your minds no matter where they are.. One such friend gifted this pretty lipstick to me, La Vie En Rouge from The Matte Lip Collection released by MAC a couple of months ago.

Despite being a Limited Edition shade, La Vie En Rouge comes in the standard black packaging and has the signature vanilla scent.
MAC describes La Vie En Rouge as Bright Orange Coral. To me it definitely looks like a Coral Red with warm undertones. The shade is super bright and may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
La Vie En Rouge has a soft, but not buttery, texture. It is extremely well pigmented and all you ever need is one swift swipe to deposit rich even color on your lips. The lipstick was not drying per say, however, at the end of the day I noticed some dryness on the lips and it could be because I’m allergic to Orange pigments in a lip color. (It’s something that I have noticed every time I wear a lip color with some orange pigment like MAC’s Lady Danger!)
La Vie En Rouge stays for a good 7+ hours and leaves a strong tint behind when it fades.

Overall, I think bright lipstick lovers would love La Vie En Rouge for the vibrancy and intensity of the shade. The staying power is good and so is the staining which never leaves your lips bare.

I recommend!

So i have not yet got a red lipstick in my collection. But if any time i visit MAC Store i am definitely gonna try this one out if it's still available

    Nisha, if you're planning to go for a RED, you must try Ruby Woo first and foremost..I havent yet seen Ruby Woo look bad on anyone at all..and yes, if you get La Vie En Rouge, you must try this one too :)

    Oh no Rajalakshmi..Why so?? since Red is a like a neutral color to me, I can wear it all the time. I would suggest that if you wish to start off with Reds, please do begin with softer stains and gradually move on to intense color. Believe me, you'll love it when you start wearing it

    Thanks so much darling..Yes, it looks more coral on me than Red but of course in indoor fluorescent light , it definitely shows signs of Red..Great shade to own :)
