Good morning sweets! How quick is this week going?! Tomorrow is Friday woop woop! Seeing as it's officially Autumn *sigh* I thought I'd share with you a lipstick I haven't put down all Summer and has been a firm favourite of mine. Summer calls for bold and bright lipsticks and I think I've found one of the brightest - L'Oreal Colour Riche in 371 Pink Passion. This is my first L'Oreal lipstick and I luuuurve it.

The packaging of this lippy comes in a gorgeous golden tube, which is quite classy for a high street lipstick. There is a sticker in the colour of the lipstick at the bottom of the tube informing you of the shade, so if you do have multiple L'Oreal Colour Riche lipsticks you won't get muddled easily. It also has a click in feature, which can be a little annoying if you're in a rush as you have to get it in the right place to close, however this ensures you that it's secure in place.

In the bullet it's a bright, neon coral however when applied/swatched it's a much softer, wearable pinky coral yet it's still daring. I'd say 'Peach Passion' would be more appropriate than 'Pink'. This lipstick is extremely transitional from day to night. For a more wearable day time look all you need to do is apply using a light hand, as it is so pigmented, for a light lip stain which still gives off a lot of colour. For a more evening, and bolder, look apply a couple more times over your lips and you have a bright coral which can also look on the verge of being a red lip - similar to how it looks in the bullet. The staying power is amazing as if you do build it up, even after a good few hours you still have the majority of it on which is perfect for me for work as I don't often get the chance to even have a lunch break at work let alone apply more lippy! If you leave this even longer you would eventually have a light lipstain, similar as if you were to apply this lightly. I've also tested this lipstick with food and drink and it doesn't transfer and stays on your smackers. I've looked through many swatches of this lipstick by different bloggers and its look SO different on each person. So what it looks like on me, most probably won't look the same on you. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing?! This is recommended for brunettes, which I didn't realise until after I brought it, however I've proved L'Oreal wrong and have pulled it off for the blondes! I often get asked what shade of lipstick I'm wearing and a fair few compliments. One to quote from my best friend 'How do you look so glam when you feel so ill?!' From our crazy weekend in London when I very nearly broke my nose and my reply was 'It's the lipstick' So she went and brought it!

The formula of this lipstick is fairly matte with a velvet-like texture when applying. As you can already tell I've found that the staying power is fab as is the pigmentation, which are most important and essential when it comes to lipstick. Only downside to this lipstick is the smell. It's quite overpowering when you apply, even sniffing from the tube it's still quite strong. I wouldn't say it was a nice fruity smell like you can find among other scented lipsticks, it's more of a 'I'm-not-going-to-breath kinda smell. Ha I'm so great at describing smells aren't I?! Other than that, this lipstick easily receives top marks!

I brought this lippy in Superdrug, on 3 for 2 obvs, for £6.99. Next time I'm in Superdrug or Boots I'm definitely going to have a mooch and see if I can find some gorgeous Autumn shades that I can love as much as this.

Until next year my love!

  3. I've heard quite a few good things about these lippies and might just have to take the plunge myself! I think I'm going to do what you're doing and check the range out for some pretty autumnal colours - I can imagine if they have a maroon-y coloured lipstick, it would be perfect for the upcoming months! x

  4. I had something similar, with a pen I did not put down for a few days as a so-called friend put super glue on it.
    I eventually had to use a solvent to remove it, which did scar my hand for a couple of weeks.
