Loreal Color Riche Lipstick Collection Review
I had the pleasure of receiving Loreal’s latest Color Riche lipstick collection to try out thanks to Influenster. Today I am going to share swatches and my first impressions of this collection! All opinions are my own. Even though I was gifted the collection – I will ALWAYS be 100% honest in my review. Read more about it over on my Disclosure policy.

LOREAL COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK PACKAGING
My first impressions of the packaging is 4/5 stars! I really love the look of the purple/black/& tan packaging. They look sleek. HOWEVER – the clear packaging was a flop in my opinion. I find the clear packaging (in person) looks a bit “cheap”. Although Loreal is a drugstore brand, I still think packaging is really important. Having your product look “upscale” even if it’s not, can make quite the difference! So for me the clear packaging wasn’t a stand out compared to the packaging of the black/tan/purple.
LOREAL COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK QUALITY OF PRODUCT
Loreal lipsticks usually never disappoint! I really love the quality of their lipsticks. This particular collection ranges from mattes to shine finishes! I personally LOVE the matte shades more than the shine shades. The reason being is that sometimes the shine shades aren’t as pigmented as the matte shades are. I still LOVE the shine shades though, just wish the color payoff was a little more intense. I still find myself wearing them, especially for everyday looks that aren’t needing to be as dramatic.
I love the way the product feels on my lips. It glides on smoothly, and the matte shades aren’t drying like most matte lipsticks. Something that I can’t stand about Loreal’s lipsticks though is the scent. It’s very florally and smells almost like those toy babies I used to play with when I was younger. (can anyone else relate? HAHA!) It’s like a cheap florally scent. I don’t know how else to explain it.
LOREAL COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK SWATCHES
now for the fun part! SWATCHES! I did two separate batches of swatches.
Shades from top of hand to bottom: Matte Caron 800, Power Petal 976, Ballerina Shoes 135, Matte Moiselle Pink 703

OVERALL THOUGHTS ON THE LOREAL COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK COLLECTION
Overall, I was pleasantly pleased with this collection. I really enjoy the matte shades the most! The color payout isn’t bad. It lasts relatively long for a drugstore lipstick. These shades have me excited for fall!
Which shade is your favorite? Have you tried the collection out yet? Do you agree that Loreal lipsticks need to change up their scent? Let me know in the comments!!!!
