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

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.

Likey!

    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?

      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.

    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.

    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!

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

    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 :(

    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!
