L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Fairest Nude!

IMG_7669I good nude lipstick is extremely hard to find.  In my experience, nude is one of those colors that is the hardest to wear and find out of all lip colors.  I can’t tell you how many nude lipsticks and pink-nude lipsticks I have in my collection, searching for the right nude for my skin tone.  Well, I think I may have found my perfect nude!

IMG_7670I kept hearing from so many people that L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in Fairest Nude was the perfect nude, but I always shied away from it because it looked too dark and too pink in the tube to work with my skin tone.  I finally picked it up, thinking that I had nothing left to lose after all the money I had spent on other nudes to no avail.

IMG_7671From L’Oreal:

Indulge in richness beyond compare with our most luxuriously rich color and intensely rich hydration. Colour Riche® Lipcolour is richer, creamier and more moisturizing than ever before. In addition to nourishing ingredients like Omega 3 and Vitamin E, the formula is enriched with Argan Oil to condition and soften lips. Your lips are kept soft, smooth, and ultra-hydrated. With a spectrum of 42 gorgeous shades from bold to nearly nude, Colour Riche® Lipcolour offers a shade that’s perfect for every look and any occasion.

IMG_7672The color is more pink than nude from my swatch, so I was a little nervous to try it out.  But it is a little on the sheer side.  Also, it has a lot of shine on the lips and feels very hydrating.

IMG_7673What I like:  I LOVE the color.  I think a pale pink nude may be the perfect way to go for my skin tone.  It is lighter than my natural lip color but because it is a little sheer, it lets my natural lip color shine through and mix with the pink-nude of the lipstick and creates a super flattering color against my skin tone.  I also love how comfortable this feels! It almost feels like you’re wearing a balm, but without the hydrating effects of a balm.  I also love that I don’t have to wear a gloss with it because it has such a shiny finish already.

What I don’t like: I wish this lasted longer on my lips.  I find that I have to reapply after about 2 hours to get the same color on my lips.  But since it is so sheer, it when it wears off it wears off naturally so it doesn’t look patchy during those 2 hours I wear it.  And this is just a personal preference (so take it with a grain of salt), I prefer a matte or satin finish.

Overall, I’m in LOVE! I absolutely love this shade and think it is my perfect nude.  However, I’m still on the hunt for my perfect matte or satin finish nude lipstick, so if you know of a shade like this one but with a different finish please please please leave it in the comments!

  1. I used to have this one (hell, I still might…have to go look), and I really enjoyed wearing it. I’m not one for thicker lipsticks, and this was light enough for me. The shade is perfect too – and finding the right nude is damn near impossible for most of us!
