     Red and pink lipsticks will always be a staple lip color in every girl's lipstick collection. For me, pink is perfect for everyday makeup look. On the other hand, I always sport red lipstick for special occasions. I presume that you've seen your favorite beauty bloggers rave this collection from L'Oreal Paris- Color Riche Lipsticks Velvet Pinks and Matte Reds.

What I like:

  • The price is affordable.
  • There's no funky or weird scent.
  • Each lipstick is housed in a classy black tube.
  • It's easy to apply. Glides smoothly on my lips.
  • The texture is creamy. For the velvet pinks, I can say it has a buttery texture. 
  • For matte reds- both gives a full coverage after one swipe. I can say that color pay-off is opaque upon application.
  • For velvet pinks- gives a sheer color at first but buildable on the following swipe.
  • The velvet pink shades are wearable, perfect for everyday lip color.
  • There are 7 shades for the velvet pinks while 8 shades for the reds to choose from.
  • It's easily accessible. Available in all L'Oreal Paris counters nationwide.
  • The staying power is great. It leaves a beautiful stain even if I eat greasy and oily food.
  • It's not drying on my lips but I still apply my favorite lip balm prior to application.

What I don't like:

  • The shade indicator doesn't match the color of the lipstick inside the tube but it's no biggie for me.

Will I repurchase? Yes! I also want to try other shades that's perfect for colder months. 

Recommendation:
    I give this a 5/5 rating. Perfect because the pinks are perfect for everyday makeup and there's a perfect pink shade for every skin tone. The matte reds are also a good investment for those who like to wear different shades of red- from warm to cool tones. There are 8 shades to choose from so I guess you will find the red color that your lipstick loving heart desires.

What are your favorite shades from both collection? Share your thoughts below :)

Good Times!~
