L'oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks Review

Lipsticks! It feels like I haven't reviewed lipsticks in like forever and for a change its not MAC. Wohooo! Can you believe these are my first L'oreal lipsticks? Nops! Never tried them before. So I was pretty darn excited when I was sent these from L'oreal's NZ PR team.

Matte is my favorite formula in lipsticks so I was quite looking forward to be trying out matte lipsticks from L'oreal. These babies are called L'oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction lipsticks and they come in about 16 colors, housed in sturdy matte black packaging that shuts with a click. I am going to be showing you the 6 stunning shades that I received!

Formula wise, I'd have preferred if L'oreal just called these normal lipsticks or even moisturizing lipsticks because these babies are far from matte. Intense color pay off, bold colors and a moisture rich formula courtesy Camellia and Jojoba Oils. These go on like a dream, there's no dragging there's no dryness. I can put it on without having a lip balm underneath and it still won't dry out my lips. Infact I think it's better that way because even without lip balm these lipsticks are super moist and emollient. If you go generous with layers of lipsticks over lip balm, it'll spell disaster because the lipsticks tend to bleed. So anything but matte right?
The shade collection is stunning with a good mix of red, pinks and nudes. I got a variety of shades to try, mostly bold because that's my style.
The scent of these lipsticks is a bit weird and off putting but thankfully it disappears in a few minutes or maybe my nose gets used to it. It's very similar to the scent that Rimmel lipsticks have, which is one of the reason I don't buy Rimmel's lip products. It's still bearable and goes off soon. The color pay off of Matte Addiction lipsticks makes it worth it!
In my opinion, these lipsticks are a great buy for the lovers of saturated colors and moisturizing formula. These won't dry out your lips.
The lipstick stays for about 3 hours and then needs top up. The darker shades leave a beautiful tint on lips longer after the lipstick has been eaten away.

Here's the low down on shades I tried out-


1. L'oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction lipstick in '101 Candy Stiletto"

This one is a candy pink that's not too stark and easy on eyes. It looks great on my NC33-ish skintone but can wash out skintones darker than NC37.

2. L'oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction lipstick in '103 Blush in a Rush'

A beautiful nude shade that looks great when paired with heavy makeup. It is borderline washing me out so I won't suggest this for skintones deeper than mine. It suits me with evened out makeupped skin but washes me out bare face. I just need a touch more pink or beige in it. I tend to mix this shade with other nude shades to create my custom color.

3. L'oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipstick in '241 Pink-A-Porter'

This is beautiful coral pink that will suit so many skintones. It's not heavily pigmented so can be used as an everyday shade. Love!

4. L'oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipstick in '348 Brick Vintage' 

My favorite shade of the bunch! I do not own any other lipstick in this unique shade in my collection. This is a burnt rusty red. Brick is actually a suitable name for it. It complements medium ethnic skin so well! Highly recommend this shade.

5. L'oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipstick in '349 Paris Cherry' 

A cherry red lip color with amazing pigmentation. Fully opaque and very moisturizing. A great alternative from usual yellow and blue based reds.

6. L'oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipstick in '463 Plum Tuxedo'

I've wanted to own MAC Rebel Lipstick for so long but I guess I don't need to buy that one anymore because this purple plum shade is of the same family and contrary to my expectations actually suits my skin tone. Like other dark shades from this collection, its superbly pigmented and stays on for a long time. The tint it leaves behind stays all day. I love this!

Bottom line, a great line of lipsticks in a variety of desirable shades. I just wish they weren't called matte because these are anything but that. Very pigmented and feel comfortable on lips the whole time. I suggest using a nude or matching lip liner underneath to prevent bleeding and also go easy on putting too many coats. This gets messy! Use minimal lip balm too. Oh! and they smell weird but I promise the scent goes away fast.
L'oreal lipsticks are available at all leading cosmetic chains and these Color Riche Matte Addiction lipsticks retail for $23.99 NZD each.


Have you tried any L'oreal lipsticks before? What do you feel about their quality and the smell? Which one is your favorite among the bunch I tried? Talk to me in the comments below :)
