Hi gals here is my L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Burning Rose (286) Review!
I bought this lipstick when I was bored, wandering around town one day when I probably should have been reading some of the many, many books I had to read during final year at uni. It says on the packet that it’s for light brunettes (I am not a light brunette, but a very dark brunette) but the colour appealed to me so much that I decided to ignore the advice and get it anyway.
The colour, at my best guess, is a cherry pink/red, although it’s difficult to say whether it is more red or pink. It contains a subtle amount of sparkle which makes the lips shimmer slightly but doesn’t look like something a 12 year old going to her first party would jump at.
Complexion wise, this is not the easiest colour to pull off. I have cool, pink-toned skin so the colour enhances this. One way to tell if lipstick will suit is to try it against the skin andreally think about whether it looks good. Not all lipsticks suit every skin tone and undertone. If you don’t know what your skin’s tone and undertone is then I suggest youlook here and find out.
That doesn’t mean to say you can’t wear red at all if one red looked silly on you. It just means you need to look for a different shade that brings out the best in your complexion. Patience, and maybe a little help from makeup counter staff (who should know what they’re doing) will help if you’re stuck.
I took this photo in natural light and this is the best rendering of the colour I’ve been able to obtain.
The lipstick goes on easily and has a creamy, balmy texture, which leaves the lips feeling moisturised. You can build up the colour from a medium pink to darker, reddy-pink. It lasts well, even through eating and drinking as it stains the lips, so only a little top-up is required.
The packaging is also quite robust and pretty. The lid won’t come off in your bag and get all over the place.
It is not a cheap lipstick at £8.19, but it is very good quality. I tend to wear it with a very neutral face (liner and grey socket shadow, low-key mascara and cherry-coloured blusher) so that I don’t overdo my look.
I give this product 7/10.
