I haven't written here in a while. I am still pretty obsessed with beauty and have a lot to share but I don't have the time and enthusiasm for it. This year was definitely not the year of the lip products, we all have to wear face masks after all.

I bought these two lipsticks at the end of 2019. I've always been a fan of the L’ORÉAL Color Riche formulation and I managed to grab these when they were on sale. They are currently on sale (October 2020) in Lilly drugstores so I decided that it's the right moment for me to publish this post.

The packaging and the scent

I love the beige coloured packaging. The scent is the standard Color Riche's aroma. My guess is that they changed the formulation a while back and now the lipsticks are not so heavily scented. I enjoy the rosy smell.

The shades

I like all the colours in the range but I bought only two. No judgement is a darker brown shade similar to MAC Whirl (review here) but not as greyish. No hesitation is my favourite in the range, it's like a darker version of Charlotte Tilbury Pillow talk. I really liked the pink No lies too.

The formulation

These lipsticks are matte but the finish looks more like a satin to me. They don't dry out my lips. It's a good formula, no feathering too.

In a nutshell

These lipsticks are lovely and the formulation is on point. They are often discounted so you look out for that.


P.S. The lipsticks are bought with my own money and the opinion is personal.
