Made for me naturals dark skin tones:
All the lipstick reviews come from heart when I write and these will always be something I truly enjoy apart from writing for Imbb. The latest possession which I got last Sunday is my L’oreal color riche lipper in amber, and there are so many reasons why I picked this up. I may not have perfect lips or pout but I constantly want to get more lipsticks because I just love the look of new untouched pure lipstick and I would want to keep it that way .I always try to photograph my new lipsticks before I write till they are new even before a swatch and trial on lips. I want to capture them and show them to all of you in its pure glory, virgin lipstick :silly: .Once i its used it loses its charm and dents here and there, melts, accumulates on the sides of the tube 🙁 but then we are supposed to use them after all. But I do try to click them when they brand new just when I have the seal removed :toothygrin: nothing beats the look of a new lipstick.
So coming back to the lipstick I got this from health and glow spencer plaze phase 1 last weekend where the maybelline SA was also handling the l’oreal counter :silly: and hence roped me into l’oreal too. Personally I love Colorbar cream finish lipstick and its unavailability has moved to buy maybelline which is definitely not better but kind of creamy in the moisture extreme range with a variety to offer. I miss Colorbar and maybelline is just an excuse. But I got this amber lipstick in the hope that it would be a gradual transition for me from a creamy lipstick girl to kind of glossy lipstick , somewhere between cream and gloss:a glossy frosted high shine lipstick. And amber from l’oreal is my answer to that. I thought it safest to try a nude color so that I don’t end up looking like a cartoon with weird colored glossy lipstick because I still haven’t warmed upto glosses. This was my minimalistic attempt.
L’oreal color riche lipstick amber 238:
I don’t see a mention of quantity but I guess it should be close to 4 grams
I have around 7 to 8 l’oreal lip colors (it is not much for a lipstick crazy like me )and hurts me so bad to throw these away after expiry and hence I refrain form getting more. This lipstick is a super smooth creamy textured lipstick in an orange toned nude color with gold shimmer and glossy+shimmery finish . I loved how it looked at the counter specially at the back label of the tube and it is exactly like the shade the sticker has. A goldeny nude with golden shimmer.
The shimmer in it gives it the high glossy finish, and I got this because I find it to be a mix of creamy texture with glossy high shine finish.It is exactly like avon ultra color rich gold lip color in natural gold that Sabrina had gifted rati. Just that avon one is creamier and loreal amber is lighter in texture. It is great for daily wear too but just one swipe is enough. I don’t find it too pigmented as the color would not show up before three swipes for night time wear. It feels light, moisturising but does transfer to cups, glasses etc. if you mute it down with tissue probably it will not , but will lose its shine.
If you want to make a gradual transition from a creamy lipstick to some high shine glossy lip colors for day wear and a super pretty nude color, you might want to check it out. It might be delicate in the tube and shaky when you apply it because of its texture. It has already got some dents due to edges touching the lipstick because its very soft and may shake on application,apply it with a light hand. I am still warming upto it but many of you who are comfortable with shiny lipsticks may love it. It is not a lipstick I would happily wear because the shine would make me conscious but it’s a nice lipstick over all.(sorry about the dented swatch on my wrist. 🙁
