My Review of the L’Oréal Paris COLOUR RICHE® La Palette Lip
I really like the L’Oréal Paris COLOUR RICHE® La Palette Lip and would give it 4 out of 5 stars. I didn’t give it 5 stars because there are a few things I would change it if were up to me. But first, let me tell you what I do absolutely love about it!
My favorite thing is that there are so many different colors to choose from (8 to be exact), so you can create a look that is unique to you or how you are feeling on any particular day. I’m a pretty laid back, easy going gal who normally prefers more natural shades of makeup, so I chose the Nude colors. For me personally, I love lining my lips with one of the darker colors, filling in all but the center with a slightly less darker color, and then finishing it up with the lightest color (the highlight illuminateur). It really makes my lips pop! The nude colors work extremely well doing it this way. I also love how well it goes on with the brush, nice and silky smooth. The brush is very precise and doesn’t get all bent out of shape after a few uses. If you have really dry lips, it’s best to apply some clear lip treatment prior to putting on your lipstick. I have tried this lipstick for a couple of weeks now and I can say that it stays on pretty well. It will last several hours as long as you aren’t using your lips a lot; you know, kissing, eating, drinking, etc. But that’s with any kind of lip product! I’m also happy with the price. I’ve checked these out at my local shopping places like Meijer and Kroger, and I’ve seen them for right around $15 each. That’s definitely a price I’m willing to pay for EIGHT different color options. I know some lipsticks cost more than that, and you are stuck with just one color to choose from.
And now for the things I would change if I could. I love having so many choices, but I also like to carry my lip products with me wherever I go so I can always have fresh looking, vibrant lips. However, with the L’Oréal Paris COLOUR RICHE® La Palette Lip, it’s pretty bulky for my tiny purse. I would much prefer a more compact lip product, perhaps one that is 2-tiered where you can unfold it, so it would be a square instead of a rectangle. This is just my personal preference. I also think that adding a mirror would increase the value of this product, and I’d be willing to pay a little extra for that feature. And last, but not least, I really love the brush that comes with it, but I’m terrible at cleaning my makeup brushes like I should. So it would be great if this came with either a double sided brush, or an extra brush so my colors don’t get all mixed together on the brush.
Overall this is a really great, new, exciting, and innovative product and I have already shared it with some friends and will continue to share because it’s one of my favorite pieces to my makeup routine now.
The picture is of me after trying on the product for the first time. It looks pretty light and simple, but that’s what I like. I also realized at that moment that I needed some lip treatment. After treating my lips for a few days, the L’Oréal Paris COLOUR RICHE® La Palette Lip colors looked WAY better on me!
