Like lot of reviewers I bought this after reading about it in Allure. It looked forbidingly dark in the tube but I figured maybe its lighter on the lips First of all, there is no way that this is universally flattering color like Allure implies. Its a plummy mauve with silver frost, looks very cool and I can't imagine it looking good on warmer skintones. I put it on after I got to work and …Read more

This is a pretty, cool, slightly shimmery, mauvy-purply color...not exactly what I was looking for but still wearable. I thought it would be more of a berry...not exactly...not really a nude lipstick, either. I can wear it to work with a very neutral eye. I absolutely adore L'Oreal lipsticks in general but find I don't reach for this color all too often.

This is a lipcolor that I keep buying over and over. I love the color, though I do not think it's universal--it's more of a cool tone. It's a bit frosty, but not too 80's.

The formula is good too, very moisturizing so it's good for wintertime. If you aren't afraid of purple/violet hues, give this a try.

This lipstick got really great reviews as being the perfect neutral beige for those with pale skin. I am usually hestitant with drugstore brands but gave it a try anyway. I have tried it for a month and it is awful. The color comes out a purpleish-brown and is very drying. The tube color is decieving as it looks like a beautiful beige with a hint of plum. Also when the color wears off it is …Read more

Picked this up based on the Allure Readers' recommendation. I normally would've avoided it b/c it doesn't look to be the type of color that is flattering on me. I like Colour Riche lipsticks generally, but this is not a universally flattering shade. I'm NC25 Asian and this comes out a mauve-plum with a silver sheen and cool undertones, which is okay but not the ideal color …Read more

Okay, I couldn't resist the Allure recommendation either... but it turns out this is really NOT a universally flattering shade. Anyone who has read my 250+ reviews know I am a color experimenter and like to give things an honest go before giving up. Still, I should have just trusted my instincts when I saw it in the store.


I am a pale, warm-toned redhead and this pale lilac …

A funny thing about this lipstick ~ I first bought it about 8 or 10 years ago, and it was one of my staples for the LONGEST time. Then, for some unknown reason, I put it aside in favor of others by higher-end brands (BE, Chanel, Nars, etc.) I recently read it won a Reader’s Choice award in Allure magazine, and I thought, “Hey, I remember that color. It used to be my ‘signature’ shade!” I …Read more

I love the texture of Colour Riche, but this shade was too frosty for my taste.

I purchased this color even before reading about it in Allure. I really like the berry color it provided.
The reason why I did not give it 5 lippies is because I found the texture to be a bit on the dry side. If I use it with a lip balm as a primer, it is much better. The staying power is also pretty good. I'd say it lasts several hours.
I wouldn't purchase again …

Stocked up on Ebay...3 for 9.99 :) Love it...I've been using this for years and saw it in Allure for the second time. The shade somehow makes my hazel eyes pop. Sexy lipstick. A must have.
