Matte lips continue to be one of the hottest trends from the red carpet to runways to every day wear. This summer, L’Oréal Paris has introduced its first matte lipstick collection – the Colour Riche Matte Lipstick that’s available in 16 creamy matte shades.
Formulated with pure pigments to create intense color, the new L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick promises a luxuriously rich matte formula with intense hydration for comfortable wear. With a spectrum of gorgeous shades from bold to nearly nude, Colour Riche Matte Lipstick offers a shade that’s perfect for every look and any occasion.
I have 5 shades of the new L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick: Matte-Sterpiece (nude with slight shimmer), Doesn’t Matte-R (deep burgundy), Matte-Jestic (dark plum), Matte At Bat (orange) and At The Drop of A Matte (purple).
The new L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick has a lot of great things going for it! The matte formula applies smoothly and evenly without any dragging. Although matte, these lipsticks have a creamy feel going on with a velvety matte finish…and I love that! However, if you prefer drier, super matte lipsticks, you may be disappointed in these, since they’ve more of a creamy matte finish.
As I said, I love the creaminess in the texture! The moisturizing formula feels lightweight and comfortable throughout the wear time…no dryness at all! Great for those of us with naturally dry lips that don’t get along well with traditional matte lipsticks.
The color payoff is excellent too and as you can see from the swatches below, how vibrant and true to color all of these shades are. Speaking of staying power, this lipstick is fairly long-lasting and wears well for several hours before fading to an even stain.
Also, the color doesn’t feather or bleed because of its matte finish. My only gripe is that these lipsticks have a fairly strong scent that lingers for quite some time. Here are the swatches…
If you’re on the hunt for a well-pigmented matte lipstick that’s both non-drying and long-wearing, L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick is sure to please. It’s not a true matte lipstick with a super dry look or feel but for those who often gets dry lips like me, this one is a winner!
Plus, the 16-shade lineup has something for everybody, whether it be beige, hot pink, red, orange or purple. And they come at a great price ($8.99) too!
