I like these lipsticks, I have it in toasted almond and tickled pink. both are nice colors. toasted almond is brownish pinkish color, and tickled pink is a shimmery pink color. both are great, i use them alot. i dont like drugstore lipsticks too much, I mainly use MAC lipsticks but I like loreal color riche lipsticks. they have nice color selection and texture is good too. i will be buying more of these.
however, i donot think these lipsticks are as nice as MAC lipsticks, i still find MAC lipsticks to be the best in terms of pigmentation, texture and color pay off.
this is an okay product. it's not an HG product of mine. the packaging is nice, i really like the gold. i got it in fairest nude and it doesn't show up at all on my lips. it's pretty pricey, around $9. kind of stupid for a product that barely has any pigmentation, i could spend an extra $6 and get a MAC lipstick that has a wider color selection, true nudes, and more pigmentation. if you sweep a color on your lips, it won't show up, maybe just a little brighter or lighter, but not much from what i've seen. i've been using it because i want to use it up. i wouldn't recommend this and i wouldn't buy again.
What I liked
Found the lipstick goes on smoothly and is a nice shape for my lips. Had a nice subtle glitter effect and glossy shine. The smell did not bother me. Easy to remove or fix mistakes.
What I disliked.
Bought the colour Intense Flaming Fuchsia 382. Found the colour didn't match the one on the packaging, it was a little darker, but that is expected with most lipsticks, best you use a tester. The coverage was also too translucent for my liking unlike Revlon, though it improved after several coats. It also wasn't very last longing, but wasn't smudgy.
Overall the lipstick had a nice feel to it, shine and colour even though a little translucent.
I have a love/hate relationship with these lipsticks. I buy them for the colors and creaminess which I love but I can never really enjoy them because of the over the top fragrance.
Why oh why does L'Oreal not listen to customers when so many have complained about the smell of their lip products?? It seems ot be the #1 complaint. Revlon took their previously awful scent out but I think L'Oreal wants this heavy flowery scent associated with their lipsticks. They added it to their new line the caress lipsticks.
I know Nars and MAC have a scent but it doesn't get in your face the way L'oreal does.
The L'oreal scent is so cloying to me. Like the way little old ladies in church when they put on too much perfume smell. I could tolerate it if they dialed it down a couple of notches. It bums me out because I like the color selection and feel of this lipstick.
The color selection used to be fabulous but I notice the stores are scaling this back. I wonder if L'Oreal is planning to discontinue it or just have a smaller selection of colors.
The good: I have 2 colors that I love. Tropical coral which is a peachy pink with a beautiful satin finish and Pink Tranquilo which is a soft pinky deep nude. Pink tranquilo never makes me looked washed out but it is a quiet and subdued pink. I believe that particular color was discontinued. Tropical coral is such a pretty color for summer and it has a slight sparkle. Very unique.
I have searched in other lipstick lines to find similar colors especially the tropical coral but there is nothing that I can find to dupe it. While I love the color and texture it gags me because of the smell so I only wear it when I really want that color. Luckily I discovered Niagra by Nars which is similar but does not have the little bit of frost that tropical coral does.
I like that L'oreal does not feather and it has decent staying power. If you don't mind the smell I think it is the best of the drug store lipsticks for quality and color.
i saw a commercial for this lipstick claiming it was the 'number one lipstick in the world' and the colours looked gorgeous on the model so i thought i would go and pick one up. i chose the colour 303 Rose Tendre which in the tube looked like a baby pink with some shimmer, unfortunetly there was no testers for this colour so i bought it on a whim as no other colours really appealed to me, put it on my lips and there was no colour at all after layering it on my lips about 5 times it just looked like i put a lipbalm on it felt smooth, moisterising and smelt nice but the colour payoff is crap will not be repurchasing another color riche lipstick again. the darker colors might be better but im a nude/light pink kinda girl.
This is a horrible product. The colors are great and they go on creamy but within minutes my lips start drying out, specifically my lower lip. After skimming these reviews it seems like there is a trend with this problem. This is not one of L’oreals best products unfortunately.
I enjoy these lipsticks. They go one creamy and the color is awesome. The product itself is a bit drying for my lips and I feel I need to add a top coat of gloss to keep my lips from drying up. The color lasts for me about 3-4hrs in between touch ups. I have the color 303 Royal Red and it is a very pretty Red for fall and winter months.
These have a great selection of colors and are nicer for a light-weight lippie, however for some reason they gave me a dry irritated patch around my lower lips. I tried using them several separate times with same results so it was definitely these, didn't have the issue before and have not since I stopped. The packaging sucks too, with the little lock thing. Too much thought to be spared in putting the cap back on. No big deal but a little annoying. I would have repurchased if the formula was not so irritating, but my skin is really picky so I would recommend trying them if you have normal skin.
I love this Lipstick whether I am wearing it on it's own or under some gloss. I have it in the shade 124 Pink lady, i am on my second tube now. I just love how creamy it is it glides on like a dream!
Loreal Colour Riche lipstick smells awful! It smells very artificial and sickeningly sweet like cheap sugary candy. I would not re-purchase. And in Canada they are $10.99! Way overpriced. I love all the Revlon lip products which are less expensive and completely scent-free. I will stick to them from now on. If you are sensitive about fragrances like I am, I'd avoid the Loreal. It irritated my lips.
