Love Love Love the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Matte lipsticks that landed on my desk to play with. I love a matte lippie and I love lipstick in general. Its just one of those things that totally changes up your look and freshens everything up. My lipstick collection is starting to get on the crazy side because I never know what shade I will need when I go to a shoot. Often I get a brief and then it totally changes so I need every shade there is for every skin tone. A matte looks cool plus it stays on so you don’t have to be applying every time you sip a drink and for me thats really important.
There is a gorgeous range of shades that I got to play with that covers the paler to darker skintones. Of course I always reach for the reds, pinks and oranges as they are my personal favourites. The lipsticks are super hydrating thanks to the Camelia Oil that makes the lipstick so comfortable to wear. A light gel for that cushion feel without drying lips but remember to apply lip balm before application. Plus Jojoba Oil for long lasting wear for at least a few hours.
I opted for the gorgeous retro red shade that totally lifts my complexion and makes everything so much brighter. You can play around with shades and wear two different ones? One shade on top and and one at the bottom. Alternatively work the darker red on the outer part of the lips and dab the brighter shade in the centre to really make them pop. A great way to wear colour is either to match nails and lips or wear alternate bright shades.
