Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick Shade 339 Red Rhapsody Review
Hi ladies , 🙂
I got this L’Oreal lipstick in last winters, December 2010, when red lipsticks were such a rage, but I guess, a beautiful red lipstick never goes out of vogue 🙂
WHAT THE COMPANY CLAIMS ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

INR 720, I got this online for around Rs. 600.
ABOUT THE SHADE:
Red rhapsody is a very rich, blue-based red. I wanted a classic deep red that would not be too orange on my fair cool/neutral skin tone. This was perfect, but I am not really sure if this shade is available in India.
The lipstick comes in a classy golden packaging which I really like.
Single swipe + no flash.
MY TAKE ON THIS LIPSTICK:
The pigmentation of this L’Oreal colour riche lipstick is INTENSE! It has to be one of the most/superbly pigmented lipstick I have used till date. Just one swipe and you are done. With 2-3 swipes, it gives absolutely opaque coverage. It has a slight fragrance, but it does not bother me. The texture is so creamy and the lipstick is decently moisturising too. I prefer to apply it over a nude lip liner, lip primer, and with a lip brush, to tone down the colour a bit. This way, it lasts for good 3-4 hours and gives that strong, classic red lip. You can also use a red lip liner for a rather dramatic look. I would suggest that you must use a lip liner with a red lipstick, be it nude/red. Firstly, since a red lipstick attracts a lot of attention, so you need to properly shape them and secondly, colors like red/fuchsia tend to bleed, so a lip liner keeps them in place. The lipstick is matte finish, but since it’s very creamy, it has a little shine too, but that can be dealt with by blotting your lips with a tissue. For me this shad, Red Rhapsody is just perfect. It’s a very rich, blue-based red. I wanted a classic deep red that would not be too orange on my fair cool/neutral skin tone. The lipstick is very soft and tends to melt if I don’t keep it in the refrigerator. The beautiful classy gold packaging is an added cherry on the cake and adds a luxurious feel to the lipstick 😀
Overall, I am in love with this red lipstick and also fairly impressed with the quality of this range, so I am definitely getting more shades in these.
WHAT IS GOOD ABOUT THIS LIPSTICK:
• Superb pigmentation.
• With its great creamy texture, the lipstick just glides on the lips.
• Moisturising enough, so the need to apply a lip balm to moisturise your lips is minimal.
• Classy golden packaging, I love this red and gold combination 😀
• Available in a large number of shades.
• I couldn’t find parabens in the list of ingredients.
WHAT IS NOT SO GOOD ABOUT THIS LIPSTICK:
• Being a L’Oreal product, it’s a little expensive.
• I doubt if the shade has been launched in India at all.
• Since the lipstick is very creamy, the staying power is not more than 3-4 hours.
• L’Oreal tests on animals .
