This is a guest review of L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick.
I have lots of beauty products that I enjoy using on a daily basis, but my favorite lipstick has to be L’oreal Colour Riche. I love trendy colors, and this line has plenty of them. The British Red is my current favorite for dressy evenings, and I like a nice peachy color for the day, for a fresh transition from summer to autumn.
I love Colour Riche because there is usually a wide selection of colors. From trendy to classic, whether you like matte or shimmer, bright or subdued, you’re guaranteed to find a color you like. They also offer colors that are flattering to a large variety of skin tones, and are deeply pigmented to show up well regardless of skin tone. They have a selection of cool and warm reds, pinks and peaches, so I can always find a shade that looks the best with my skin. They are easy to apply, and only need blotting for the brightest colors, so swiping on a nice neutral before leaving the house is quick and efficient. As a busy person, I’m always looking for high impact, low maintenance make up to maximize my look and save time. Convenience is key for make up on the go, and this lipstick slips easily into a purse or bag, with a snap-lock cap to avoid a mess.
Since I’m also a student, I’m usually looking to save a buck, and it’s certainly one of the most affordable lipsticks I’ve used. It works almost like a lip stain, and I’ve found it to be the longest-lasting lipstick available in its price range. Of course, that comes with the caveat that most colors in this price range don’t last quite as long as expensive lipsticks. You do get what you pay for, to some extent, so a low cost lipstick is probably not going to last for hours like an expensive lipstick. I reapply Colour Riche about once every two or three hours if I want the color to last all day. In combination with a lipgloss or primer, I’ve made it last longer than that, and this lipstick does very well when combined with other products. It blends easily into gloss and primer, so you can mix and match a little and come up with your own unique shade.
I highly recommend Colour Riche as an affordable lipstick that gets the most bang for your buck!
