Loreal Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Red Lipsticks

You guys know I have a lipstick OBSESSION!

I cannot help myself.  I see a lipstick in the store and I become Gollum from the Lord of the Rings.  You can faintly hear me saying, “My Precious” as I stand in front of the display.

I saw the Loreal colour riche collection display at CVS and was instantly drawn to all the beautiful celebrity women in the picture.  The nine shades of red lipstick are inspired by Blake Lively, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Doutzen Kroes, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, and Zoe Saldana and I heard there is one additional shade called “Because you’re worth it” although I didn’t see that in the store.

They were all wearing their own unique color of red and I was tempted to buy them all.

Thankfully, logic (a.k.a. my husband) stepped in and intervened and I choose two shades to try out.

Price:

$8.99

9 different shades available.

I purchased “Eva’s Red” and “Zoe’s Red”.

Description:

A Red for Every Woman.
Pure Matte Color.
Velvet soft feel.

Scent:

Okay.  I have to get the worst out of the way first.

The scent of this lipstick is not my favorite.

It has the same scent as Loreal’s La Lacque and Le Matte lip pencils.

It’s a baby power Cabbage Patch Kids scent.

Some may not mind it and some may even love the scent, but I despise it.

Okay….now that that’s out of the way…..

These applied pretty nicely.  They didn’t tug at my lips and they didn’t feel super drying either.

(“Eva’s Red”)

They wore for about 4-5 hours before I needed to re-apply and they started to feel a bit dry at the point as well.

(“Zoe’s Red”)

I really love this concept of “a red for everyone”.  I know it can be so tough to find the perfect red to suit your skin tone.  I actually stayed away from red lipstick for years because I was convinced I couldn’t pull it off.

Now that I’ve found what works for me, I am in love with red lipstick.

I preferred “Zoe’s Red” over “Eva’s Red”, but both are such beautiful colors!

Wishing you a beautiful and wonderful day!

xoxo Lizzie♥

    I’m pretty surprised about this review! The first lipstick I got from Loreal was “British Red” in the gold packaging. Long story short, it was terrible. :/
    Glad to see that the quality improved though! But the smell still seems to be the same lol

    1. The smell kills me! I know some people really love it but I find it really strong! How long ago did you try the lipstick?
