Hey, how are you all pretty gals and ladies? I was silently reading all those colorful posts and DIYs here from 2010! IMBB is like a second social networking site to me where I can get my daily dose of inspiration from so many inspiring ladies and one and only gentleman Sanjeev. IMBB seems to be more innovative and fun to read, really feel proud to be a part of IMBB. Now, as I got married, I also got lots of cosmetics as gift. So, a lot of review of makeup stuff is coming. So, here comes my first review. I have come here to share a gorgeous nude shade from the brand – L’Oreal. Please read on further to know about “Silky Java.”

Ready to shine bright? Our #1 best-selling lipsticks are now available in 16 gorgeously glossy shades. Colour Caresse by Colour Riche is formulated with our revolutionary Lightfeel System to deliver a feather-light finish without being sticky or heavy. 100% color. 0% compromise.
This vanilla-smelling creamy gorgeous nude shade comes in as usual pretty attractive bronze-golden packaging with twist over cap. Shade details are given at the base of bullet. Also, the twist over part has a colour coding of particular shade, so we can know the shade without opening the bullet. The packaging is quite classy and travel friendly.
My Experience with L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick – Silky Java:
On first swipe, it gives sheer brown pigmentation, I need to swipe it 2-3 times to get the actual nude brown shade on my lips. It is an everyday office wear kind of colour which looks great with your formal attires. It can be also paired with heavily smoked eye makeup look for a night out party.
Coming over to its texture, as you all know about L’Oreal Colour Riche formula, it is really creamy but feels very light and soft on the lips. My lips feel really nourished and hydrated. I never felt the need of applying a lip gloss or balm after wearing it. I just feel that the staying power could have been better. Normally, it stays for 2-3 hours provided we skip meals and water sips (which is impossible) however, I always keep these handy and I won’t mind touch ups occasionally.
Overall, I like the lipstick a lot and will explore the other shades of this range.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
