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

Love it, very soft, nice scent, with sort of a cooling minty feel.

I picked this up because I was looking for a good bright-red lipstick for retro, pin-up and other eyecatching looks. The price was great, so I figured I had nothing to lose. First applying it the texture was really nice, and the lipstick was very pigmented. It glided right on, and the color on my lips was exactly the way it looked in the tube. It feels very good on my lips, very moisturizing. The scent is interesting, but not unpleasant, it reminds me of baby shampoo/baby powder, so it's a clean fragrance. This is a fire engine red, so if you want something subtle, this isn't for you, but this is an awesome shade. So far I've had no problems with it. :)

Oh, I love this color of red! At first glance it looks like a really daring bright red. But when I wore it look fine, more like a coral orange-red against my Asian skin tone and was not too bright or too bloody dark. I've been looking for a nice red lipstick to wear to a wedding party and this was the one I wore. My first red lipstick in public.

The best best red lipstick on my fair but not too pale/pink, medium brown-haired self. Not too orange, not too blue/purple, not too brown - nice. Very pigmented and rich - a perfect firetruck, not tomato (i.e. deeper and less orange) red. Rich, but not bright if you know what I mean. Color reminds me of the color a 1940's movie star would wear. Wish it was a natural brand/ formulation though.
