L’Oreal Colour Riche La Lacque Lip Colour Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Colour Riche La Lacque Lip Colour

L’Oreal Colour Riche La Lacque Lip Colour is one of two new pencil lip colors that L’Oreal recently introduced which will be available for a limited time. Yesterday I reviewed the Le Matte version of this pencil which I really liked but I must say the L’Oreal Colour Riche La Lacque Lip Colour is even better!

This is a color rich lip pencil that will blow your socks off with the pigment!

It’s a terrible shame L’Oreal Colour Riche La Lacque Lip Colour is limited edition and only available in a few shades as this is a great lip pencil. I think the good news is sometimes products like this get an LE launch but later make an appearance as a larger launch come the Spring. So I’m keeping hope alive that both L’Oreal La Lacquer and Le Matte Lip Colours get a more wider launch comes Spring 2014.

At a glance I thought these were click style lipgloss pens but they are actually swivel up lip color pencils with a slanted tip for application. The La Lacque formula is so dubbed due to the nicely glossy finish the colors provide. I tried two shades one of which had a rather nice high glossiness and the other more of a high sheen but none the less both gave the appearance of a shiny finish without the added effort of gloss application.

Lacque-onic and Never Lacque-ing

You can both line and shade with these as the point is precise enough to do so. I find they glide on easily and provide opaque coverage on a single stroke. The pigmentation is excellent. I find they wear well for at least five hours straight with a very comfortable lightweight texture. As they fade they leave behind a nice staining effect as well. The shades are intense but I never had an issue with it migrating or feathering on my drier lips. Interestingly enough these do have L’Oreal’s traditional flavor and fragrance which is far from subtle. I say interesting because the Le Matte version of the pencil did not have a flavor or a fragrance. Odd!

Overall, L’Oreal Colour Riche La Lacque Lip Colour should be a crowd pleaser! My only compliant would be the lack of shades and the limited edition factor but all in all a most excellent lip pencil!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I think I’ll pass on these unless there is a berry/plummy color. That red looks gorgeous on you Muse!

  • Stephanie A.

    Oh gosh, the colors are GORGEOUS on you, especially that red! I have a million red lippies, so I think I’ll grab that pink since it’s so cute!

  • Cookie

    That red shade is _stunning_ on you! The only red I could wear without looking like a clown is a discontinued (of course) lipstick by Clinique “A Different Ruby.” Miss that da** color so much. Made me feel sex-say to wear it! 😊

  • Michelle

    On the lookout for these. I did some hunting today but have not found them yet, hopefully I will strike gold this weekend when I am out and about because I NEED these in my life.

  • Simone

    Wow! I sort of just “meh’d” when I heard these were making an appearance, never would have thought they’d be so beeyewteefullz!
    That red looks smokin on you! I’m gonna pick some of these up for sure, thanks!

  • jenn

    i could do with some of that lacque-onic. i love orange based reds!

  • MK

    OH MAH GOSH I need that red! And probably the other red one in the display because I must.

  • Kangana

    Hi Muse, where did you buy yours? I’ve looked at both Walgreens and CVS – no luck! I NEED that beautiful red!!!! It looks just amazing on you πŸ™‚

    • the Muse

      aw thanks kangana! got mine at harmons if you don’t have harmons check bed, bath, and beyond!

  • Martine

    Glad you mentioned the fragrance and flavor. I can’t wear Loreal because of that. Sure wish they wouldn’t do that.

  • Carol

    I want these badly and cannot find them at Harmons or Bed, Bath and Beyond?

  • Katie

    I have searched everywhere for these things! Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, Bed Bath & Beyond, and I can’t find in north Alabama! I really wish L’oreal would put some info on their site so I could track these things down. If anyone is in the south please let me know where you found them. My lips were burned when I was 4 so I have no pigmentation on my right upper lip. I have always had to wear lip liner and lipstick to even out my lips. I would love to try these out to see if they would correct my problem!

    I sure hope I can track these down at my local drugstore! The formula seems fantastic!
