I have this in 590 Blushing Berry. It's a deep berry red perfect for fall/winter and looks great on my fair skin. The formula is nice and creamy and very opaque. The smell I don't like very much however, but I can deal with it for such a nice formula and color selection.

I only have two colours from this line: Fairest Nude and Everbloom (relatively new shade). The pigmentation on these lipsticks are really nice and creamy. They last for quite a while - about 4-5 hours of wear time. I do have to say that the packaging looks quite old-fashioned but the biggest problem I have with this lipstick line is the smell.
My goodness, I'm not super sensitive to scents but every time I open a tube of this lipstick, it makes me gag. It has a overpowering perfume-y, 'grandma' kind of scent and I can still smell it once it's applied as well. I do have to give credit for the product because it is quite nice but I just can't get over the scent. The reason why I wouldn't repurchase it is because I don't reach for them quite often due the scent (personal preference) so I doubt I will use a tube of it up anytime soon. If you can get over how it smells, I would definitely recommend this line of lipsticks.

Best lipstick ever. I wish i own the entire range of colors. Very flattering colors.

I bought this in the shade 184 (Merino Mauve). If I'm being honest, I'll say that the packaging most definitely lured me in. I was on the hunt for a good, pigmented pink lipstick to give off more color than shine, but this was a disappointment because it did not. It's a nice product if you're going for a sheer, slightly shiny sweep of color across your lips, but if you want a rich pink, this most definitely isn't the right product for you.

I have this in shade #810 Sandstone. I like the nude frost color; I bought it for an evening event I was going to, so it was perfectly suited for that. But it's not something I'd wear every day. It's just too shimmery. Also, it makes my lips chap, and the color just sits on the cracks on my lips. It also doesn't last long. During the evening event I wore this to, I had to reapply about five times. Not happy at all.

Although I really like the color selections, pigmentation and consistency of this lipstick I can't get over the smell . It has a really strong chemical smell that makes me gag. For that reason alone this is a miss for me. If you are at all sensitive to offensive scents in makeup you will def want to pass on this one.

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.

probably a HG product of mine. the packaging is nice, very easy to operate. but it does look sort of old-lady to some people but i personally think the gold's pretty. i got it in fairest nude. i like that it's the perfect nude, not too light, not too dark so it doesn't wash me out or it's not brown. it's around $9. it's one of my favorite nudes and it works really well. it doesn't last too long but it does last longer when you blot and reapply. i would recommend checking these out, they're pretty good.

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.
