L’Oreal Eva’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Collection Privee Colour Riche Lipsticks

L’Oreal Eva’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick ($5.99) is one of six new, limited edition lipsticks launched with the L’Oreal Collection Privee that’s showing up at drugstores at the moment.

The L’Oreal Privee Nude Collection is a selection of non traditional nude lipsticks inspired by the multi-ethnic L’Oreal celebrity ambassadors including Eva Longoria.

Let’s take a look at her shade!

L’Oreal Eva’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick comes housed in a matte rubberized tube with gold accents that includes Eba’s signature on the case. It’s quite a luxurious looking lipstick and really has a counter makeup look and feel. I’m unsure if I love the rubber casing as of yet! I’ve used the lipstick several times and traveled with it once and so far it’s clean but I fear it’ll fall victim to NARS faults with this style packaging and that would be attracting grim, dirt, and just becoming sticky and such!

I wouldn’t call this formula moisturizing but it has a lightweight texture on my lips with a heavy perfume-y fragrance and flavor. If you use or used L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in the past you’re likely familiar with this taste and fragrance. I found the wear time is around 3 hours. I’m typically ok with the Colour Riche Lipstick formula however, it isn’t a drugstore favorite. I find the application is a little draggy and the color settles into the natural lines of my lips and has a slightly uneven finish! Drier lips will likely dislike the formula as you’ll have an uneven, patchy look.

L’Oreal Eva’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is a very nice pick for my medium fair skin tone. Of course, no one is limited to anyone shade but I think they are trying to say the color will look best on brunettes with medium skin tones. However, this shade seems like it’ll be beautiful for a range of tones. It’s a medium peach with a bit of duskiness to it. It’s fairly opaque on first application and has a satin finish without any shimmer or sparkle.

Overall, L’Oreal Eva’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is a lovely wearable nude shade for lips. However, I do wish the formula was a bit more moisturizing. I’ve run across Colour Riche Lipsticks that I like very much but this felt a touch dry to me. But it might be worth a purchase for the shade alone. A little gloss on top will likely help with the dryness and give the shade a smoother finish.

This is available now for a limited time at drugstores.

I purchased this item.

  • Sandy

    I tried jlo’s nude and it’s really pretty…it’s more like a mlbb kind of shade on me…are you thinking of picking up other shades????

    • Isabella Muse

      glad to hear it! I already purchased and swatched them all Sandy πŸ™‚

    I have both Eva and Freida. I like Eva, but I really like Freida and wear that more often. But if I was totally honest, I think that I love them most for the packaging. I feel like they disappear an hour or so after I apply them.

    I think the packaging is really pretty but if they are not moisturizing I’ll probably pass.

    Finally found this at a Rite Aid today and picked it up (after always seeing it sold out!). The color of this one is perfect for me and I really like it so far. Also have J. Lo and Frieda shades, but so far I think this one is the best for me. Thanks for the review!

    • Isabella Muse

      my pleasure Christine glad you found and are loving! πŸ˜€
