A new year brings hundreds of new beauty products to the drugstore shelves! And this year is no exception…in fact the number of new releases is higher than ever!
If this year’s barrage of new drugstore makeup can tell us anything, it’s that we have a fabulous year ahead for affordable beauty!
One of the products featured in this latest lineup is the new L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks and being a self-proclaimed lipstick addict, I had to get my hands on these!
L’Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick is described as ‘an ultra-rich, ultra-radiant lipstick with a glossy finish and comfortable wear’. Sounds like just what I need for my winter-worn dry lips!
Does this lipstick really live up to its promise though? Let’s find out…
L’Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick ($7.99 each) is available in 16 shades ranging from everyday nudes to hot pink and red. I tried out 3 colors – Glassy Garnet (berry red), Burnished Blush (pink nude) and Laminated Fuchsia (fuchsia pink).
The formula is truly moisturizing and glides on lips more like a balm than a regular lipstick. I have absolutely fallen in love with how these lipsticks feel on my dry lips…hydrating and comfortable while being lightweight.
True to their name, the L’Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks have a shiny, glossy finish that makes lips look smooth and plump. The formula doesn’t have any fragrance or flavor and I really like that!
These lipsticks also excel in the pigmentation department. All the three shades I tried have a great color payoff! Unlike some glossy lipsticks that are too sheer, these are well-pigmented with a rich and vibrant color.
The wear time isn’t very long though, but that’s to be expected with glossy lipsticks. The colors last only about 2-3 hours but I really don’t mind reapplying because the formula is moisturizing.
In fact, these days I find myself reaching for one of these hydrating lipsticks instead of my usual lip balm for on-the-go color plus moisture!
Here are the swatches :
L’Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks get a big thumbs up from me! These shiny, hydrating and color-rich glossy lipsticks are just what my dry lips need! These are also perfect for anyone like me who’s tired of the matte lip trend and looking for a lipstick with a smooth and glossy finish.
With 16 shades in the range to choose from, you’re sure to find something that you like. And at just $7.99 each, you really can’t go wrong!
Well done L’Oreal!
