L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Color – Violet Chiffon Review

Hey Beautifuls,

How’s week going on gals! Our active toddler is giving us tight competition in learning latest technology and ideas. It seems this generation is already set to rock the world, I could not believe my eyes when my 15-month-baby just opened the flap of my phone and started gossiping, and smiling like her dad when he is on an official call while WFH 😀 Even she tries to unlock her dad’s laptop often when he is not around. Recently, she mailed empty box to one of his office recipients online and this is not just the story of our kiddo, every parent is narrating the same story every now and then. We are just stunned how these babies are really growing super fast even before we could teach them anything, they are already set to surprise us with their little wonders, wow! Anyway, let’s move on to my favorite topic before she comes here and makes me crazy. Today’s goodie is a beautiful creamy yet glossy lavender shade “L’Oreal Colour Caresse Lipstick in Violet Chiffon by Colour Riche.”  Read on further to know about Violet Chiffon.



$ 9.99 for 0.10 Oz (2.9 g), price may vary from store to store.

This is my first Colour Caresse lipstick from L’Oreal.  I am loving this golden bullet packaging even more than Colour Riche ones.  The bullet is a little bigger and sturdy with shaded cap to get a brief idea of the shade inside case.  A classy, travel friendly and (as I always say now :D) child-friendly case.

My Experience with L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Color – Violet Chiffon:

By now, you must have realized that I am a die-hard fan of L’Oreal goodies 😛 I tried other goodies too but nothing beats L’Oreal when it comes to comfort, style and affordability, all together, what say gals? I had never tried Colour Riche Caresse before as I always read mixed reviews about it, so I was confused, but somehow my urge for a glossy plum lipstick brought me here.  Violet Chiffon is a beautiful lavender shade which looks ultimate in bullet and one cannot resist an urge to wear it on lips immediately, but somehow, I am disappointed as I look pale and slightly dark after wearing it on the lips, even the shade is a bit lighter on the lips.

I just wonder if it’s happening because of my tanned skin or this color is difficult to pull off.  I always thought plums and lavenders look great on fair and medium skin tones, but how come this particular shade is not brightening up my face.  By the way, I am really happy with the rich, creamy, and glossy texture of Colour Caresse lipsticks.  They feel so light on lips, like feather, and gives a buildable color in a few swipes while keeping my lips moisturized like a lip balm.  The shade does not last longer on lips but the moisturizing effect does last longer, sounds wow, isn’t it?

I feel it would be a great pick for everyday use as it’s too sheer yet glossy and hydrating to keep lips juicy and pigmented for a few hours. I was super impressed with the lipstick quality, price and what not, but this beautiful lavender shade failed to create magic on me unfortunately 🙁 I need to pick other shades in this range now as I am really interested to know further about the Colour Caresse range.

Let’s talk about the yays and nays:

Pros of L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Color – Violet Chiffon:

  • Beautiful, heavenly-smelling lavender shade.
  • Even though its sheer, it gives buildable color on lips in just two swipes.
  • Texture of the lipstick is highly juicy and shiny, glides like a feather on lips.
  • The lipstick feels feather light on lips honestly.
  • Even though the shade does not last longer on lips, but lips feel pretty hydrated for long hours.
  • Classy, sturdy and travel-friendly packaging.

Cons of L’Oreal Colour Riche Lip Color – Violet Chiffon:

  • This particular shade makes me look pale and darker surprisingly.
  • The staying power of this shade is not more than 3-4 hours with or without heavy meals.
  • I am really tempted to try all shades of Colour Caresse now, but I wish their staying power and finishing on my lips would be better than this Violet Chiffon.  Whatever be the situation, I am definitely picking 2-3 lipsticks from Colour Caresse now as I am really impressed by the texture and quality of Caresse series. I would say just try other shades of Colour Caresse, if you are a fan of Colour Riche goodies, then this Caresse is definitely your destiny, but please test the shade before getting it.  I am giving 3.5/5 stars to this particular lipstick for an ultimate texture and glossy finish (- 1.5 for this particular shade and staying power).

See you next time gals!

Neetu, you could try mixing it with some other shade and create a new shade that you like.

I will give these a try. However, I will stay way from this shade. *thankyou* for reviewing it.
