L'Oreal Paris Color Riche New shades

I had a phase wherein I would look for the most colorful, intense and pigmented matte/semi-matte lipsticks but through time, I realized that they're just cosmetic - intense matte ones would dry my lips really hard, or some would give half-baked colors. I have been a user of Color Riche lipstick for a long time and I have always adored its color payoff given its price but now, L'Oreal brings news to all lipstick lovers and I'm so excited to share it with you.


I got 4 shades and I will base my review on these items.
L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick (l-r: Think Pink, Touch of Amaranth, Viva Red and Wild Tango) SRP: PHP 625
Availability: Leading Department Stores nationwide
(+) Today, in the new Color Riche collection we see a wide range of shades and hues that go beyond red to include pink, mauve, coral and, of course, the ever-popular beige tones.

Nudes, Corals, Neutrals: from left to right: Wild Tango, Fairy Touch, Dewey Beige, Fuzzy Taupe, Beige Siena Pinks! from left to right: Touch of Amaranth, Rosy Tea, My First Pink, Sweetie Pie, Think Pink

(+) Now the color!Aside from variety, the colors are also trendy and unique: Think Pink is a soft pink, Touch of Amaranth is a dark coral pink, Wild Tango is a bright red orange while Viva Red is a bright red like(+) Texture is semi-matte that's quite comparable with the MAC's and Bobbi Brown lippies I've tried. Mostly, L'Oreal Paris lippies are glossy and semi-pigmented but this one's different!!! (+) Color pay-off is Ok (+) Easy to spread with a creamy texture

  (+) Staying power is the best amongst other Color Riche products and you can see below stains after the swatches - leaving pink, orange and red hues.

(+) But more than just covering dry lips, Color Riche has the texture of a lipcare product. Enriched with anti-oxidant Vitamin E and Omegas 3 and 6, it works to preserve the natural beauty of the lips. With up to 50% active ingredients, Color Riche protects and revitalizes the lips day after day by helping them regenerate and restructure themselves.

Overall, If you have 1000 pesos and you're planning to buy 2 lipsticks that you can mix and match with clothes and be trendy with color, this is the perfect lip stick with good quality, affordable price and care that intense lip colors could hardly give. I would recommend for everyone and as for me, my favorite is Think Pink and I'm planning on buying softer, nude shades!

What do you think about it? At any rate, my idols swears by Color Riche too ;)!

    1. Yea, it's really nice and unique. Thanks Liz for visiting!

  2. I wish l'oreal comes out with a super matte lipstick line. I would love me a matte version of think pink.

  3. I'm loving the two pinks-- Think Pink and Amaranth :))) But just like what Rae is wishing, I also want to have it in matte line.

  4. I love touch of amaranth shade for its uniqueness. Have done a review on it here at www.crush-on-beauty.com/2014/05/loreal-color-riche-moist-matte-lipstick-touche-amaranth/
