The L’oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick line is the newest release from the brand. They are a glossy, hydrating and medium coverage lipstick that is one of the best I’ve tried from the drugstore. The line has 16 different shades and a good variety of colors.
I love everything about the L’oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks. The clear packaging is stunning and reminds me of higher end lipsticks and the formula is just amazing. The lipsticks are hydrating, have a creamy feel on the lips and make your lips look juicy. The formula is super similar to the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Oil In Stick Lipsticks but they are only $9.99.
Since the formula is quite creamy and not super pigmented, I can totally apply the nude and more neutral shades without a mirror. The wear is around 3 hours which I don’t mind since the formula is so hydrating. I think it is the perfect lipstick for the summer as it is lightweight and glossy.
As I mentioned before, the L’oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick line has 16 shades and they are all very wearable. There is a mix of nudes, pinks and darker berry shades, so I think there is a shade for every taste.
The bullet of the L’oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks also resembles with the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipsticks so they are very easy to apply. With the lighter shades, you don’t really need a precise application.
I like to use these as a sheer wash of color or combine them with a lip liner for a more long lasting and intense lipstick. The coverage that they give is sheer to medium so they are buildable. The finish is a combination of a lipstick and a gloss in one which I love wearing during the summer.

Bottom line, pure love for the L’oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick line. They nailed the formula and the shade selection. Except of Dewey Petal (this shade is quite pale and pastel for my liking), I would actually wear all of the shades in the line. As for favorites, I love Varnished Rosewood, Glossy Fawn, Luminous Coral and Sparkling Rose. Enamel Red is also a super pretty red and very easy to wear.
