I love bright red and this lipstick definitely delivers! The color isn't very natural though, but if you want it to look more natural, just apply small dabs and smear it with your fingers. Keep in mind that this lipstick does clump, but not as badly as some other brands. A plus about this line of lipsticks is that it is very moisturizing. A good way to prevent drying would be to apply chapstick over your lips every now and then. Applying too many layers may result in a more clumped up effect later on, so I just apply one layer at most. The color is so vibrant it doesn't need to be reapplied that frequently in my opinion. I would buy this again just because it's hard to find such a nice, true red color.

I've been trying to find a red lipstick i can wear off and on since 1967. Rarely have i found a red that i think looks OK on me. I had frequently read that L'Oreal British Red is an excellent true red that looks good on many skin tones. So i decided to give it a try.
I generally like L'Oreal Colour Riche lipsticks, and own quite a few. I find them smooth and easy to apply, comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. They come in a wide range of excellent colors, and they're relatively inexpensive. They come in a reasonably attractive square-ish matte gold plastic tube with metallic gold trim; the cap has to go on one particular way and there's a little plastic guide to help it close firmly. The lipstick twists up smoothly - i have some that are 15 years old and the mechanisms still work well. They're scented with a mild, not unpleasant, old-fashioned makeup floral fragrance that evokes vintage glamor, unlike the tweeny foody scents (vanilla, chocolate, fruit, mint) of so many today.
And British Red certainly is RED !!! Really really RED !!! The red and my skin color were not exactly enemies. But once again, i think red lipstick makes me look, well, dowdy.
If you like to wear red lipstick, this may be for you. It is intensely red, not too blue and not too orange, so it does seem to work with many skin tones. The color lasts quite a long time, even stained my lips. I'm not going to buy it again, because i think real red just isn't flattering on me, but this is an excellent red and a very good lipstick. And at such a reasonable price it is definitely worth adding to your lipstick palette.

This is another one of those lipsticks who's color is hard to describe against my skin tone. I agree with the reviewer who noted that this lipstick can pull either cool or warm...it almost kind of looks like someone had taken a blue based red and added in just the slightest drop of orange. The undertones don't really cancel each other out but shine through and give this medium tomato red some really wonderful dimension. When I'm in broad daylight this leans more cool on me than it does when I'm inside or surrounded by soft electric lighting but I'd never describe it as being an orange-red or even ever appearing to be very noticeably orange at all.
This color doesn't have any yellow tone to it at all the way that some tomato reds do, which I think makes it much easier to pull off. I have another tomato red by Revlon (Ravish Me Red) and because of the slight yellow tone thrown in, I have to wear blush to keep the color from looking flat and washing me out a little. When I first really tried British Red on, it brightened my face instantly. I didn't need any blush to put some color back into my face and it made my teeth look pearly white. I suppose British Red could be described as a neutral shade but the color isn't devoid of undertones completely or disappointingly drab.
I quite the sleek gloss that L'Oreal Colour Riche lipsticks have. They're pretty thick in consistency but glide across the lips almost effortlessly. I've had experiences with these bleeding a little bit if I don't line my lips prior to putting them on. They stain your skin horrifically as a result of smearing or bleeding, which is frustrating to clean up too. As other people have mentioned, these have a very baby powder-esque scent which I particularly despise. I'm almost hesitant to buy L'Oreal lipsticks because of the scent but it only really bothers me during application.
While British Red isn't bold enough to be garish or obnoxious, it does a wonderful job as a pick-me-up color that can freshen my complexion beautifully.

British red is an opulent, brilliant, sensual orange red that goes on dreamy smooth and is long lasting. Think British phone booth red, looks funky worn with jeans and chandilier earrings or a little black vintage dress and red heels. I agree with one of the other reviewers that this would also look great with a matte finish, but I find that if I blot it a little with tissue it creates a semi-matte finish while still being very moisturizing. Great formulation, truly fabulous lipstick for a great price!

It's a great, long lasting bright, orange-red. It goes on really smooth and doesn't chap my lips (though I always put on a layer of blistex underneath first). I like that the cap snaps tight, and I really do like the classy look of the tube. However, the plastic used is the same as most other plastic lipstick tubes. The lipstick works best layered. It does transfer really easily and is easy to come off, but keeps its pigmentation after transfer..
This lipstick made me decide that I shouldn't do bright reds, by no fault of its own, but rather of my own complexion and teeth.

This review is for L'Oreal Colour Riche lipstick in shade 350 British Red. The product is very well formulated, creamy and pigmented. The colour is a slightly warm red, and opacity is buildable but it looks best with full coverage. The finish is satin, and longevity is good. Packaging is a gold rectangular tube with a concave side for the thumb. It is easy to hold and apply accurately. Two issues: the sticker swatch on the base appears to be a blue-based red, so it is not a good match; the twist-up mechanism is slightly slow. The price is reasonable. I would buy this again.

Love the scent, love the vivid true color, love the texture. I just wish they would make a matte version, too.

I actually really truly love this. I have never ever worn a red lipstick before in my life and I decided to give this colour a go and its amazing! I can't wait to wear it out and about!
It has a nice smooth texture and staying power is great. It has a subtle scent like baby powder or something and a cool feeling on the lips, it is also quite moisturizing. Definitely will buy this again!

Love this colour!
It's such a fun, bright, sassy red. It made me feel like I was in the 50's.
Goes on smoothly and has good staying power.
I get loads of compliments on it, definitely a re-purchase when the tube runs out.

Great lipstick! it's a bright orange-red, which I thought would be a good bit different from my WnW Sevilla Sangrķa lipstick, the only other red lipstick I owned at the time. it really brightens my face up without looking too loud. it also is quite moisturizing, something I really need. I find that my Rimmel 1000 Kisses lipliner in Red Dynamite is perfect for use with British Red. the only thing I really don't like about this lipstick is the smell. it smells like baby powder or something! but I really like the color as well as the formula so I don't care. hehe
