The L’Orèal Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipsticks were something I was very excited to have come through my door.
I am in love with the packaging first off. It is matte black with a gold gradient at the base of the tube. Very swish 🙂
There are five colours in the L’Orèal Color Riche Gold Obsession range. L’Orèal say: ‘As well as its intense colour pigment, each Color Riche lipstick shade is enriched with a combination of Omega-3 oils and Vitamin E which helps to protect your lips from drying. In 5 iconic shades to suit every skin tone; Nude Gold, Rose Gold, Rouge Gold, Plum Gold, as well as a statement Pure Gold shade.’ The gold shade can be used on it’s own or as a topper for other lipsticks.
I have three of the five to show.
First up we have ‘Nude Gold’. A brown nude colour.
The second one is ‘Pink Gold’. A light pink shade.
And the last one I have in my possession is my personal favourite out of the three. ‘Plum Gold’. A deep, purple toned plum.
All three lipsticks are laced with a somewhat subtle gold sparkle. This is meant to give the lips a more metallic look, which is very on trend at the moment. The lipstick doesn’t feel gritty at all though. The formula is rich and creamy and gives a glossy, but not sticky finish to the lips. It has a balmy feel. As it is more glossy, you won’t have much colour left behind after eating or drinking. The scent reminds me of my cabbage patch doll from back in the day, (which I am perfectly ok with 🙂 ). It is sweet, but not too sickly in my humble opinion. I actually wore ‘Plum Gold’ in a recent video of mine here if you want to check it out in actual action 🙂
I don’t think the L’Orèal Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipsticks would be necessarily for everyone. The colour range is pretty limited and they do have a sparkly finish.
For me, ‘Plum Gold’ is a definite winner. I think out of the three colours I have, that is the one I will actually pick up and wear. I really like the colour as well as the finish. The other two shades just don’t suit my complexion.
You can get the L’Oréal Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipsticks now in store or online here from Boots. They are priced at €9.99. However, Feel Unique have them online here too and they are charging €8.95, just an FYI 🙂
So what do you think? Would you rock any of the shades?
