As soon as the cold weather hits I am all about a matte lip. Something about the finish perfectly completes any fall/winter makeup looks in my opinion, so I’m always reaching for matte lipsticks this time of year. The matte lipsticks I’m obsessed with right now are the L’Oreal Colour Riche Ultra Matte Lipsticks*. They look great, and they’re affordable – which is always an added bonus in my books!
I love the packaging as much as I love the lipstick inside, to be honest. The tubes look super sophisticated and luxurious; it’s hard to believe they’re from the drugstore! The tubes have the same matte texture and gold detailing as the original lipsticks, but this collection features nude coloured tubes instead of black.
There are 16 nude hues to choose from in this collection, so there is something for everyone. Since I’m fair, a lot of the colours are a bit dark for me, but I like having different shades in the same nude colour family. I have the shades “Berry Extreme”, “Rebel Rouge”, “Utmost Taupe”, and “Risqué Rose”; all of which are so beautiful and perfect for this time of year!
While these lipsticks are indeed “ultra matte”, they are still quite comfortable to wear. They are formulated with silky oils to give your lips a serious dose of hydration while you have them on. They don’t feel super heavy or drying, and I love the soft focus finish these lipsticks give to my lips! They last a good few hours before needing a touch up as well!
These lipsticks have certainly impressed me and have been my go-to lately for a matte, nude lip. Have you tried any of these new lipsticks yet? Which shade is your favourite?
