L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick ($9.99) are a velvety full coverage lipstick pencil that’s available in five shade selections launching to L’Oreal’s permanent collection for Fall 2015. L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Sticks originally launched for a limited time for Fall 2013 but they are back in old and new shades.
Let’s take a look!
L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick
L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick (0.032 oz) are available in a matte finish as well as glossy ones. I remember when I first purchased these back in 2013 and thought they were a click pen lipgloss of sorts. They kinda do have that look about them right? But they aren’t a gloss! These are a swivel up pencil with an oval dip much like the new Maybelline Color Blur Pencils but of course, L’Oreal has the upper hand since they offer their formula in two finishes of both a matte and a lacquer or glossy one.
You all know I’m not a huge matte lipstick fan but L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Sticks throw that opinion right out the window. They are a very easy to wear formula even on my dry lips. The texture is soft, thin, and satiny and applies easily onto lips with a beautiful glide! The color doesn’t migrate or feather and wears for a solid four to five hours. They don’t provide moisture but they aren’t drying either and have a very lightweight texture that’s pleasant and comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, unlike the original formula which didn’t have a flavor or fragrance these do in fact have the L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick flavor and fragrance which is kinda a rose-y perfume-y taste.
L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick Swatches (Mad for Matte and She’s So Matte)
One of the shades I picked up, She’s So Matte, is a delightful dusky mauve nude which is well worth exploring if you like these sort of warmer shades. Both colors I grabbed had excellent pigmentation with opaque color after applying a single layer. The color lasted well through the wear without fading or losing intensity.
L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick were great in 2013 and remain as great in 2015. It’s nice to see their permanent return to the L’Oreal Collection!
