Hello beautiful people,
I am back with another lipstick and this is from the natural blondes range of L’Oreal Color Riche lipsticks. I picked up the shade 381, Silky Toffee. As my love for nudes and naturals continue, I can never have enough of the shade.
Product Description: This lipstick is enriched with a combination of Omega – 3 oils and Vitamin E and helps to protect your lips from drying. It’s soft and creamy texture leaves lips moisturized and smooth with a perfect finish.
My Experience with L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick #381 Silky Toffee:
Packaging: It comes in regular L’Oreal click lock frost gold packaging. The shade name and number is mentioned at the bottom of the tube. The sticker is color coded and hence it will not be lost in the huge stash of lipsticks. Quite simple yet functional packaging. Nothing to rant or rave.
Texture: The lipstick is super creamy and buttery smooth. It glides on like dream on lips. But one down side of being super creamy is that, it tends to slide from the lips. I would advice to cover lips with lip liner before lipstick application. Though you might wear it like a sheer lipstick but the pigmented lips would not be perfectly covered with this lipstick. Other than that the color applies creamy and glossy on lips.
Pigmentation: The lipstick is quite pigmented but the formula is such that it tends to slip away and not “sit” on the lips. Not very troublesome if you are someone who wears lipsticks with lipliner but people who tend to skip lip lining might find it a little difficult. It has to be layered to show its perfect shade.
Staying power: Considering it is a creamy finish lipstick it stays for around 4 hours on the lips, after which it starts to fade evenly. It transfers to cups and mugs being super creamy in nature.
The shade is nude shade and on my NC42 skintone, it comes off like a perfect peachy nude. For skintones above 42, I would suggest trying it at the store. It has tendency to wash out. I picked it up solely out of my love for nude shades. If you are a nude/natural lover like me, definitely try this. This is a lovely shade to be paired with smokey eyes.
Price: Rs. 825/- for 3.6gms
