Makeup Review: Loreal Colour Riche Star Secrets Lipcolour
Normally, beauty companies create a lipstick color, name it something clever, and sell it to consumers.Â Loreal did something different.
The Loreal Colour Riche Star Secrets Lipcolour series has colors corresponding to celebrities.Â Â Apparently, they had these celebrities come in, like Eva Longoria Parker and Andie MacDowell, and created a color specifically for them.Â Then theyâ€™re selling it to us.
I purchased Loreal Colour Riche Star Secrets Lipcolour in Penelopeâ€™s Red for $8.99 in a drug store.Â Thatâ€™s Penelope Cruzâ€™s shade of red.
But how did it stand up to testing?
This is one of the best red lipsticks Iâ€™ve found.Â It works well for my complexion.Â I guess me and Spanish actress Penolope Cruz have similar coloring.
The fragrance of this lipstick is actually pretty nice.Â It smells like flowers.Â Itâ€™s a light scent, though, so nothing overpowering or harsh.
The color is very vibrant.Â As you can see in the picture to the left, it has a bright, clean, clear color.Â What you see is what you get with this.
The consistency, while shiny, is also a little oily.Â It doesnâ€™t stick to the lips as well as other lipsticks.
That means that the staying power is also not so good.
Iâ€™ve used this lipstick in some tutorials.Â Click the links to see Loreal Colour Riche Star Secrets Lipcolour in action:
While there are a lot of pros to this lipstick, and I generally like it, I canâ€™t ignore the lack of consistency and staying power.Â Because of this, itâ€™s not getting as good of a grade as it could.
Iâ€™m giving Loreal Colour Riche Star Secrets Lipcolour a:
Still a pretty good grade, though!
If any of you have used this, including the other colors, Iâ€™d be happy to hear what you thought.
