Everyone loves a red lip and I am defiantly not exception to this! L'Oreal always do amazing shades of lipstick and they are one of my favourite brands to go to when I am on the lookout for something a little different. This is why I was so excited to try one of their new Colour Riche Exclusive Reds lipsticks.
I did a quick swatch of the 4 shades and, although they were all lovely, I decided on Eva. This is because I felt it looked the best against my skin tone without it being too much, as some reds can be. It is easy to apply with it's creamy texture and leaves your lips moisturized, even though it is a matte formula - which is bang on trend right now! It is strongly pigmented, so you get the bold red lip you want which also makes it perfect to wear for both day and night. It is also long-lasting - I had this on all day and only had to touch up slightly after lunch - which is perfect and it also means that one tube of lipstick lasts a lot longer and you get more wear for your money. The packaging makes this lipstick look a lot more expensive than it actually is and I love the gold tube.
To apply, I outlined and completely filled my lips with lip liner which was a similar shade to the lipstick. Then, using the lipstick from the tube, I applied starting from the cupid's bow outwards. Then simply blot with a tissue and go!
I would defiantly recommend this, as it is one of the best red lipsticks I have worn in a long time and I would also say that it rivals - and beats - some of the more expensive, luxury makeup brands. The L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Exclusive Reds are something every girl should have in her makeup bag!
