L’Oreal The Temptress Colour Riche Le Gloss Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss in the Temptress is one of several new limited edition shades releasing with the L’Oreal Project Runway Collection for Fall 2012.

The Tempress is a bronze Summer-y shade that would probably be a more suitable release for Summer but the metallic elements of it might just make it a perfect pick for your Fall looks!

Being a big fan of L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss I was quite happy to get my hands on the Temptress. Of course, I will without a doubt, be hauling the other shades once the Project Runway Collection launches in store this September.

L’Oreal released another bronze-y shade this past Summer in the form of Tangerine Diamond but The Temptress is considerably more metallic and dramatic. I actually find Tangerine Diamond a bit more wearable than Temptress.

As you can see this is a brown bronzey shade with a heavy gold metallic finish. It’s quite stunning and has a decent color pay off that results in the tube shade translating very well to what you’ll see on lips.

Le Gloss is a lightweight gloss with a high mirror shine. I find it a very comfortable gloss to wear with many of the shades having a semi-opaque to opaque finish. I absolutely love the price of these as well particularly during drugstore BOGO offers as you can get shades for as low as $5.49 in some locations (Harmons anyone?).

The Temptress is a stunning little shade that offers a dramatic finish for Fall metallic lips.


Looking forward to the other shades releasing with L’Oreal Project Runway Fall 2012.
