L’Oreal Doutzen’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is the very last shade I picked up from the limited edition Collection Privee that launched for Spring 2014.
This is actually the very lightest shade in the collection as well.
Each shade of the new Collection Privee Lipsticks is inspired by a L’Oreal model or celebrity face from the past few years. The shades are supposedly flattering for that celebrity/model’s skin tone to create a perfect “nude” shade. These aren’t traditional nude shades which can be very interesting as some of the colors are quite lovely! Doutzen’s Nude is dutch model Doutzen Kroes’s shade.
Each lipstick comes housed in a matte lipstick tube with gold accents and the signature of the model or celebrity who inspired the shade in gold on the packaging.
Let’s take a look!
L’Oreal Doutzen’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is a pearly light baby pink with a slightly frosty finish. It’s quite a mod, nude shade of pink that should work well with a cooler skin tone. Personally I think it looks ghastly on me but someone is bound to rock it. It runs very sheer but manages to build up enough to cover my own natural lip color.
L’Oreal Doutzen’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick Swatches
The consistency and texture of the lipstick reminds me more of a lip balm. It has a balmy texture that tugs a little bit during application and doesn’t hydrate nor does it remain moist through the wear. I find it a bit drying as the wear progresses to a point that it kinda cracks off and leaves little weird flaky pieces near the corner of my mouth. The wear time is about two hours before it just fades it flakes away.
Unfortunately L’Oreal Doutzen’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is one of the shades in the collection that didn’t have an entirely great formula. I imagine someone is going to love the shade but personally I did not nor did the formula make it redeemable.
This one was a skip for me.
The Collection Privee is launching at drugstores now here in the US.
