I told you my lipstick obsession has been (nearly) satiated recently with all of the amazing new products that have been finding their way to my desk. One of the latest? The new L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte lipsticks, the newest addition to the Colour Riche fam. These richly pigmented lipsticks are currently available in 12 shades, which I have swatches of!
I love the feel of these lipsticks. They’re creamy and soft, giving the lips a lot of moisture while you wear. I’ve been a really big fan of mattes lately, and I love the shade range that they have available in them – you have a few nudes, some pretty pinks, gorgeous reds and a couple of magenta/fuchsia shades to finish it off. I find that these set to a more satin finish and have a bit more sheen than most mattes that I’ve been used to, however I found that I can easily give them a more matte look by finishing them off with a quick pat with a tissue; it softens the sheen and mattifies really quickly.
I found that I get about 3-4 hours of wear time before I have to reapply, with some transfer when drinking and eating, so they don’t completely set. Reapplication is nice and smooth however, and you just need a bit to touch up without having to worry about drying or crumbling. These do have the same scent that you’ll find in other L’Oreal lipsticks, which I know some people aren’t the biggest fan of. I really kind of like the scent though – it reminds me of trying out my mom’s lipsticks when I was younger!
To make things even better, they’ve come out with 8 matte lipliners that go along with these shades.
What do you think of the new L’Oreal Paris Colour Matte Riche lipsticks and shade range? What matte lipsticks have you been loving lately?
