I don't often enjoy many types of lipsticks due the that heavy "slick" feeling on my lips, although this range is perfectly light. I purchased the beautifully pink-natural shade in merino mauve.It has an excellent formula as my previous two Colour Riche Caress Lipsticks; they glide across your lips with ease and feel as though they are melting on your lips during application. No worries though!! They aren't actually melting, they're just THAT smooth.

I have a couple of these shades. I own Sunset Angora, Violet Chiffon, Rose Taffeta, Blushing Sequin, Pink Plush, and Fiery Veil. The color range of these is great. They have a wide selection of colors which I think is awesome. I had a tough time choosing lol.
I like these lip products to just throw on. I use them when I know I'll have time to reapply them, or when I don't mind them coming off because they don't last very long on the lips.
My favorite shade is Sunset Angora. It is a very pretty peachy coral color.
My least favorite shade is Pink Plush because you can barely see that it is a pink. It is very sheer and very light. My lips are fairly pigmented which is why I think this color is a little weird on me. It would show up a lot better on lighter lips.
Overall, I like this product. I might consider repurchasing Sunset Angora, but none of the other colors. It is a good product, but I think there are better finds.
I recommend these to anyone who is not so much into lipsticks, because they are sheer. I consider these to be the next step from lip glosses, being a product in between glosses and lipstick. :)

If you're looking for a lipstick with staying power, this is not it, as there is less wax in this than your typical lipstick. It's a nice product because it's conditioning and subtle. This is L'oreal's answer to the Revlon Lip Butter, though I prefer the lip butters because they are more the coverage is more buildable and this product sinks into my lips oddly over time. I prefer to wear this under a matching color of gloss because of the latter quality.

I have this in Sheer Linen 181 and I love the fact that it comes out a perfect nude on my lips, it blends well with my skin tone so that could be why it works out for me. You will have to layer this on a few times to get more of the color pay off. It has a glossy finish & it smells yummy, like candy (Jolly Rancher). It is also light weight and feels moisturizing. Great product! only down fall is the price, it should be $2 less then what i got it for since it is a drug store product but thats just my opinion, knocked off a lippie for that reason.

I bought Blushing Sequins, as that is the one on the promo ad that looks so pretty. I had some issues with it: upon first application, it looks too transparent. Upon the next applications, it wore like a very dark fuschia, instead of getting bright, it got darker. And third, as it faded over the day, it faded unevenly so it looked like I was wearing only lip liner. Gross!

These are my favourite drugstore lip product! The formula is near perfect for my needs - sheer to medium pigmentation, silky texture, lightweight and as moisturising as any lipstick product can be without being overly goopy. Almost all the shades are wearable - my favourites being Pink Cashmere, Rose Taffetta and Sunset Angora - and the packaging is so chic. These also don't have the same intense perfume scent that all the other L'Oreal lipsticks have - thank goodness!!! Love and reccommend, definitely prefer these to the Revlon Lip Butters.

I am not a huge fan of Loreal lip colors. At first I thought the $9.99 price wasn't justified, but the more I wore these lipsticks, the more it reminded me of my really expensive YSL lipsticks. These pinks are seriously very similar to the YSL pink colors!!! I got 4 colors. I got Merino Mauve, Pink Plush, Pink Cashmere, and Cotton Pink! These are the most gorgeous girly pinks at the drugstore!!! It's moisturizing. The pigmentation is medium to full. I layer it over lipliner to get longer wearing milage. I absolutely love these! I got all four on sale at Walgreens buy one get one 50% off. Merino Mauve is a perfect neutral baby pink matte color. And the cotton pink is a true matte pretty bubble gum pink. These two are my favorites out of the four. I been wearing both like crazy! Best pink color lipsticks I have purchased in a while. If you love barbie or light pinks definitely check these out! Love the gold packaging too! Very pretty! Also, Pink Plus is a pale pink with lilac undertone. And, Pink Cashmere is a Hot Pink / Strawberry type of pink.

I noticed these newcomers @ Duane Reade, so I picked up 2 shades for $10.50 each.

I got Sheer Linen which looked like a lovely plum-tinged nude swatch on my hand but on my lips @ home it was a dreadful pasty pottery-clay color that makes me look dead. There was hardly any sheen or dewyness to the texture. It's an awful disappointment & I'll have to refund it.

I took a chance on Cherry Tulle w/o swatching it at all. It's a sweet-looking, sheer cherry red shade that's natural looking on my lips. I like that the color's not overpowering the way many reds can be. It's blue-toned but not too much.It has a dewy moistness but not a lot of shine. It's very lightweight on the lips & appears translucent in opacity. This shade has good mistake-proof application & easy clean-up.

The packaging is okay, nothing exciting, & the cap can be used as a mirror, even though it is goldtone.

I'm not a big lipstick person & I don't like the way the dewyness wears away quickly, leaving behind a matte stain of color which needs gloss applied over it. It's nice that the stain is balmy but the color lightens to more of a rose color, which I don't like. Not glossy enough for me... I think I'll just stick w/lipglosses instead of trying more lipstick colors.

The weightless texture is excellent, however, if you're a lipstick wearer you might like this more than I do. It's not cakey, heavy, greasy or waxy @ all.

I was excited to try these. There are a lot of colors, and I was interested in a few. I purchased: Sheer Linen, Rose Taffeta, and Merino Mauve. Sheer Linen was a little too grey in color to be a MLBB color for me. This color is a slightly plummy-grey neutral nude color on me.
Rose Taffeta is a lovely color for me. I'm NC20-25 with green eyes. This is a slightly blue-toned light-medium tone rose pink, and really makes my eyes stand out. I think that Rose Taffeta is like a cross between MAC Syrup and MAC Sweetie. Merino Mauve is more like a light MLBB color for me that also brightens my lips a little. It is a blue-neutral toned lighter pink shade. I got these for $7.99/ea at Target. They are $9.99 at Walgreens and other drugstores, I believe, although they may have the B1G1 50% off deals. I would recommend waiting for those types of deals to give a few of these a try.

I wanted to only pick one shade up to test it out. I bought "sheer linen". Super sheer browny nude color so it definitely gives me a nude lip. Leaves a glossy sheen to the lips. Wouldn't repurchase this shade again.
