L’Oreal Julianne’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is one of several new limited edition shades launched with the L’Oreal Collection Privee Colour Riche Lipstick Collection for Spring 2014.
Each shade is inspired and celebrates a present or past face/ambassador of L’Oreal Cosmetics. This makes for an excellent round up of shades to suit a wide variety of skin tones, eye and hair shades. Of course, you aren’t limited to selecting shades depending on your skin tone as hey, no one should dictate what colors you enjoy wearing! However, it does make your selection easier as the colors are based to flatter a certain skin tone.
L’Oreal Julianne’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick was created for a more fairer tone but I think many will like this nude pink lippie!
L’Oreal Julianne’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is a soft pale pink. At a glance it reminded me of Urban Decay Naked Lipstick but it’s actually a hint more cooler. It’s a blue based pink which will be MLBB (my lips but better) for certain skin tones where as others might find it’s a little deathly. I didn’t really love it on me. I wish it had a touch more warmth to it…!
All of the lipsticks from the Collection Privee Collection come in a matte black casing with gold accents and a gold autograph. The packaging is very luxe but I fear that the matte black case will become gross with use as it quite reminds me of NARS rubberized compacts.
The shades from Collection Privee seem to JUST be missing the mark for me. In the tube they are gorgeous, applied they look lovely enough, but the are missing something.
I experienced an issue with Eva’s shade where it kinda fell into my natural lip lines and with Julianne’s Nude the same thing happened. It kinda ages my lips. The good news is with a little gloss you can eliminate the issue but I think it is worth mentioning especially if you have drier lips or finely lined ones as this doesn’t provide the smoothest finish. It does have a nice easy glide across lips with a buttery texture and a satin finish that wears for around three hours to four hours. All L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks have are heavily fragranced and flavored with a perfume-y scent and flavored. It doesn’t really bother me too much but again, worth a mention if you’re sensitive.
Overall, L’Oreal Julianne’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is going to make some lucky lady or lad a perfect my lips but better lipstick! The formula is a bit iffy but the shade is very pretty.
I’d purchase if you can locate it on sale!
