L’Oreal Project Runway The Temptress Kiss Colour Riche Lipstick Review & Swatches

LOreal Project Runway The Temptress Kiss Colour Riche Lipstick 7

L’Oreal Kiss Colour Riche in The Temptress Kiss is one of four limited edition lip colors released with the new, limited edition Project Runway Collection.

Although a stunning shade for Fall I was a little worried about purchasing this shade since it is a vampy shade of berry purple. But I’ve ever so happy I did as after trying it I felt like it was quite wearable.

This is the type of shade you’ll want to pair up with dramatic smoky eye looks or a simple cat eye with heavy emphasis on bolder lips. The color is a metallic vampy berry purple. It has specks of gold shimmer in it but this doesn’t translate to a sparkly finish it merely adds to the metallic-ness of the shade.

I generally like L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick as they have a smooth, even glide with some moisture but not crazy hydration. The formula is always quite opaque and yields excellent coverage. The Temptress Kiss is testimony to this as it’s richly pigmented.

I find the color bold, rich, and quite stunning for Fall. If you’re a bit scared of a bolder lip or a vampy one I do suggest checking this one out. I thought it was very wearable and I’m typically scared of a vampy lip but this seemed easy enough to sport without looking too dramatic.

    • 9/25/12 9:37 the Muse:

      aw thanks jen! :D


  • 9/24/12 18:54 Cassie:

    I’m always so wary of lipsticks with so much glitter/sparkle/frost to them but MUUUUUSE you make them look so good!! I feel like on me they just age me but on you they look so fresh and girly! Also, on a side note, I’m always SO tempted to buy lipsticks that have a name involving “temptress” (I believe Maybelline makes one in a shade called “temptress”?) since a guy once told me I was a temptress hahahaha. Makes no sense to me, but I guess I was flattered?


    • 9/25/12 13:55 the Muse:

      aw thanks cassie but this doesn’t really contain glitter/sparkle more metallic in finish ;-D ha that’s why I purchased it, just because of the name hehe ;-D you should be!!!! that’s a nice compliment hehe!


    • 9/25/12 17:18 Majick:

      Cassie, I have to agree that I think sparkly or frosted lippies age me as well. HOWever, I do have a KAT Von D Adora (red metallic) that looks wonderful on me. I think the metallics are a little easier to wear than the glitter ones.

      THis is a great color! I may keep my eye out for it.


  • 9/24/12 19:19 Karen M:

  • 9/24/12 23:30 Quinctia:

    Hmm…I don’t know about how often I’d wear a color like this, but I like that it’s as sparkly as it is. I don’t often see something with the deep shade and that glitter.


  • 9/25/12 0:48 Khalia@GlamourandLove:

    I’m loving that color on you. I’m thinking it might also be a nice color on darker skin so I’ll have to check it out!


    • 9/25/12 9:21 the Muse:

      def def will pop on darker skin khalia!


  • 9/25/12 3:57 Tiffany Martin:

    I like it on you, Muse, but I think I’m still too scared of deep/vampy berry colors.


    • 9/25/12 9:19 the Muse:

      tiffany so am I so am I ;-D don’t write it off!


  • 9/25/12 9:10 Cindy:

    Wow! I can’t get over how gorgeous this shade looks on you! I’m sold.


    • 9/25/12 9:17 the Muse:

      aw thanks cindy! try it, it’s really lovely!


  • 9/25/12 10:24 JoElla:

    What a beautiful color and it is lovely on you =)

    However, it always seems that L’oreal colors never really work for me. I have tried many but the ones I love, make me look like death :(


    • 9/25/12 11:26 the Muse:

      aw thanks Jo <3! awww so sorry :( I’m the same with Maybelline Color Sensational, want to love them but can’t!


      • 9/25/12 14:10 JoElla:

        OMG me too! I was thrilled when I found Strike a Rose.. slapped some on and well.. I coulda starred in a Rob Zombie video.


        • 9/25/12 14:12 the Muse:

          LOL Jo that’s not necessarily a bad thing ;D


  • 9/25/12 11:08 OrangeLipstickBlog:

    I’ve been wanting to start rocking a vampy lip but I’m scared of trying it! This seems like a good “toe in the water” shade. Love it!


    • 9/25/12 11:26 the Muse:

      believe me if I can wear it anyone can!


  • 9/25/12 14:50 GK:

    I’m usually not into the purples, but it looks beautiful on you. I’m going to try to find it today!


    • 9/25/12 14:53 the Muse:

      aw thanks gk! let me know if you get it curious what you think!


      • 9/28/12 13:39 GK:

        I found it, it’s pretty, but it looks better on you.


  • 9/25/12 15:25 Amy Amethyst:

    I love purple/wine colors like this! I like the sheen it has too.
