Hi! So I’m back with a beauty post! I was hoping to get up a more mum/home related post, but I was lucky to be sent these to try so I jus had to do a quick little review! These are 6 of the New L’Oreal Colour Riche Collection Exclusive reds. These claim to be “the perfect matte red for every woman” With each colour being represented by 6 different women with very different skin tones. As you all know I’m a self-proclaimed lipstick wimp and it sucks! Id probably wear black lipstick before I wore red. Yep. Red is a sexy colour, its bold and its confident. And although im bold and confident I’m not to sure about the sexy part (I cringe even writing that word haha) Red to me looks best with flawless foundation, long lashes, winged eyeliner and contour on FLEEK! I’m in love with the formula of these lipsticks, so creamy easy to apply and they have pretty decent staying power. They are sort of semi matte/creamy finish but not drying at all. I love the packaging it’s really pretty and luxurious. After swatching them all I might just have been converted to be a red lipstick wearer. Get Ready for selfie overload, Not my strong point and totally out of my comfort zone, but I know when I’m interested in a lipstick I want to see it on, so here it is!
JLO’s Pure Red “Ruby Red Lips For an Opulent Appearance” This one is my favourite. I’m lighter skinned than Jlo, but im a medium skin tone with dark hair. When I tried this colour on I immediately Loved it! it’s the one that suits my skin tone the best, I immediately thought of my gorgeous Latina friend Daniela from and thought this is definitely her colour too. It’s just a deep warm true red, for me the perfect red. Eva’s Pure Red “Urban Chic Brick Red Lips”This would be the most wearable of the reds. Not at all bright, there’s a brown/orange undertone to it. This is my least favourite. I felt like it was a very conservative colour and just not something that I would pick, I think my mum would suit this colour!Blake’s Pure Red “Pure Red Lips For The Most Iconic of Looks”This is my second favourite! It’s very similar to Jlos red but with a way pinker undertone. It’s really pretty and If i ever get brave enough to wear red lipstick this would definitely be one I would wear!!Doutzen’s Red “Blazing Tangerine”This is and orange-red, more orange than red. It’s a really bold colour. This colour is not for me. It is a beautiful colour though! If you love orange based reds or any kind of orange this is for you!! This colour makes me think for Shaaanxo and her love for Mac’s “Morange”Laetitia’s Red “Garnet Red for the most Sophisticated Dark Lips”This is a dark vampy red. It definitely compares to Mac “Rebel” with a browner undertone where “rebel” has a more purple undertone. Such a pretty colour! this one for me was a little harder to apply that the others it needed more layers. Perfect colour for Autumn/Fall. (excuse the application this was the last one I watched and It was getting messy)Freida’s Red “Lips that Flirt With Fuchsia for a Flower Red”This is the most pink of the reds. It’s definitely fuchsia! if you love dark pinks, fuchsia reds this is your one! This one for some reason reminds me of my mum she must have worn a colour like this when i was younger! So pretty! In my opinion this would suit so many people, from blondes to black hair!These Lipsticks should be released in July and be selling for around $21.95 in Australia. I really love the formula they go on so easily, they aren’t slippery or patchy, they are long wearing, I got 4 hours wear from them but remember I’m a mum of 5 and I play, clean, eat and for a lipstick to stay on longer than 5 minutes is a miracle!
Swatches on my arm so you can see them side by side, Doutzen’s Red is coming off REALLY orange next to the other shades, but in person its definitely a tangerine red!
My Final thoughts? Im in Love. I didn’t own any L’Oreal Lipsticks prior to this. L’reals foundations, bb creams, cc creams, eyeliners etc I have heaps but not lipsticks. I am so down for these lipsticks now haha. They are really beautiful quality.
If your interested, here’s the details on the rest of my makeup. I had cleansed , toned and moisturised about 2 hours before I did my makeup. I have found that putting on makeup only 15 minutes after makes it sit so much better, so I just quickly used Model Co facial wipes followed by Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost water gel which absorbed so fast and left my skin smooth and hyrdrated!This Is L’Oreals New 24hr Infallible Matte foundation and Primer being released in July Also, this was the first time I had ever used them. I have used them since and I’m in love!!! perfect! easy to blend, full coverage, baby proof haha its a beautiful foundation! Im really loviing it!Hope this was helpful if you’re wanting to buy any of these new reds!
