Hi loves! I'm finally blogging again! Today's post is all about the new L'Oreal Color Riche Lipsticks. There are two categories of these lipsticks, Le Matte and Le Laque. As you can probably already guess, Le Matte is the matte one and Le Laque is the glossy one. I only picked up three colors, one from matte and two from gloss, because those were the only ones available at my local drugstore. I picked them up from Bed, Bath & Beyond and I haven't seen them at any other drugstore yet! I want more; especially from the matte collection!
Let's start with the only matte one I bought and it is called "No Matte-r What." I really had high hopes for this one and I was very disappointed. I was expecting it to be the perfect nude for us tanned skin girls. However, this one had a brown undertone and really doesn't look flattering. It also goes on very patchy and does not feel matte at all. They only positive for me is that it is not drying. I guess I have to try out a couple more from the matte collection before I completely start hating on them. Here is a swatch on my lips:-

The next two are from the Le Laque collection and I have to say that these are my favorites! These are immensely pigmented and glossy. Unlike the matte formula, these are not patchy at all. The only downsides for me are that they are a little sticky, they do feel heavy on my lips and they transfer. I personally don't like wearing bright lipsticks unless they are matte because they kiss off. That might be the only reason I won't reach for them very often.
The first swatch is of the pink lipstick called "Laquer-ized." This color is a glossy version of MACs Candy Yum Yum. It is a neon pink with purple undertones. This was the most difficult to photograph because it looked more purple than pink but I did my best!

The last color is probably my new favorite red and it's called "Laque-onic." The formula is not only amazing but the color is so very flattering. It usually takes me some time to get used to red but as soon as I applied this one, I felt beautiful. It is a blue based red so not only does it make your teeth look white, it also makes your skin looks brighter. I am absolutely in love!
