Work the metallic ombre trend with L’Oreal Paris Color Riche 24 Karat Gold Lipsticks: Review, Swatches & Makeup Looks

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche 24 Karat Gold Lipsticks

It’s lipstick galore! We can never get tired of the ombre trend, can we? Just as you thought things were getting boring, a dual tone lip colour – the metallic ombre – is here to dominate. What better way to rock the Lunar New Year than to mesmerise with your dressed pout?

With 5 iconic Color Riche shades and an additional Limited Edition gold lipstick wrapped in 24-carat gold pigments (wow), the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche 24 Karat Gold Star collection is going to be a staple in your makeup bag.

The Lipsticks

The Color Riche formula launched over 30 years ago is still a firm favourite today, gracing the makeup vanities of countless makeup lovers, bloggers, beauty opinion leaders and models alike. Giving beautifully rich colour with Vitamin E and Omega-3 oils, the lipstick collection includes all the benefits of a Color Riche lipstick with a range of metallic gold finishes.

The Shades

Discover the brand new hues perfect for illuminating your make up look:

  • Nude Gold – sweet baby pink
  • Rose Gold – bright hot pink
  • Rouge Gold – classic warm red
  • Scarlet Gold – neutral red
  • Mocha Gold – dark brown red
  • Le Gold – gold with sparkles and micro-shimmer

The Formula

Featuring velvety pigments mixed with a touch of gold for an illuminated finish, I find that the collection has got a suitable shade for every occasion. A nude pink for an everyday makeup look, a bright pink for your special date, and the different hues of red for parties – you’re pretty much covered. The formula is very pigmented with the exception of Nude Gold and Le Gold, and moisturising. With the darker shades, you won’t really need a touch up even after you eat!

The Swatches

Here are hand and lip swatches for all 6 shades.

I can’t decide which one I like best, because (except Le Gold), I feel that every shade works perfectly for me! If I have to pick one, I would probably choose Mocha Gold for its deep colour for a cool, mysterious feel.

Of course, how can we forget the metallic ombre look, right? I’ve picked my favourite, Mocha Gold, as the base, with Le Gold applied in the centre of the lips. This gives a really festive feel with the shimmers. If you’re afraid of being over the top, just apply one coat of Le Gold. It gives a really nice subtle sparkle which I love!

The L’Oréal Paris Color Riche 24K Gold Star Collection retails at SGD21.90 in leading Watsons, Guardian and departmental stores.

Create yourself and be gorgeous!
