It’s no secret that I love matte liquid lipstick. Ever since every brand and their dog have been releasing their own formula, that’s pretty much the only lip product I’ve been wearing.
A couple weeks back I got this box from L’Oreal Paris containing their new Colour Riche Matte lipsticks and lipliners. I think we’re all familiar with Colour Riche, however, these new ones are their first matte lipstick collection (crazy, right?).
Available in 16 shades, these are formulated with pure-colour pigments to create intense colour. They also have blurring gels and mattifying ingredients to create a soft focus and matte effect on the lips. Wear is long and colour feels comfortable thanks to the jojoba oil.
I received 12 of the shades (not sure if there are only 12 in Canada or not, the info from earlier was from the U.S. site). Colours range from nudes to pinks, purples, taupes, orange, and reds. They also have three of the Exclusive Collection shades down in tandem with Eva Longoria (a pink and a red) and Blake Lively (a red). Both ladies are spokespersons for L’Oreal Paris.
In addition to the lipsticks, they also released a collection of matte lipliners to coincide with the lipsticks. Not sure how many there are in the collection, but the shade range on these are awesome. They really do go with the shades of the lipsticks.
I spent all week swatching these bad boys and although they aren’t a liquid lipstick, but rather the traditional formula, they are pretty awesome. I love the shade range, since there are some classic colours in here, as well as some super fun ones (At the Drop of a Matte and Matte Mandate). You guys know I love nudes, and there is no shortage of them here (or in the lipliners – there’s three different nude shades!).
I was very impressed with the longevity of these lipsticks. The lighter ones didn’t really last that long, but the deeper colours stayed on for most of the work day (I did maybe one touchup, if that). For a red colour to stay on that long, that definitely deserves a mention.
I really liked both the lipsticks and liners. They both applied very creamy, especially the lipliners. The lighter colours do go on a little sheer, so you may have to pack the colour on. The deeper ones don’t apply as opaque as a liquid formula, so again, you may want to do a few swipes of colour to get the shade you want. It’s honestly hard picking a favourite since they are all so stunning (even the ones I didn’t think I would like as much – like Eva’s Pink).
Overall I’m very impressed with these and will definitely be incorporating them into my daily rotation (especially the liners since they have such an awesome shade range). I highly recommend you check these out in person if you find them at your local drugstore. They are listed on L’Oreal Paris’ Canada website, so they are probably already in stores.
Will you be picking up any of the new L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte lipsticks or liners?
