I am back with a lippy review! I was having a mooch around the shops and stumbled upon the Collection Exclusive range by L'Oreal Pure Reds which launched this autumn and the nude range which I believe launched some time last year.
They base the lipstick shades on the beautiful L'Oreal celebrity ambassadors, each with an individual look and skin tone. The idea is to see what your skin tone and hair colour most resembles and to choose a shade based on that ambassador. There's a shade for everyone!
Firstly I would like to comment on their beautiful packaging. I've not seen any thing so luxurious from a high street brand, gorgeous! All the ambassadors of L'Oreal who represent these lipsticks have signed the packaging.
I however didn't base my choices on my hair colour or skin completion, I wanted one from each range and chose what stuck out the most.
L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Doutzan NUDE
I found this to be a creamy consistency and very sheer. I opted for this shade as I often like a baby pink/nude shade on my lips, however in hindsight this may have been too frosty and sheer for my liking. It is the lightest in the nude collection. I found it to be really moisturising on my lips. I can see how this lipstick would suit a fairer complexion, like the chosen celeb ambassador for this lipstick Doutzen Kroes.
L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Julianne's Pure Red:-
This shade is Juliannes pure red shade. It has a matte finish but it's not an uncomfortable matte, it still feels moisturising on the lips. Throughout the day I found it to last most of the day, after a few drinks and sandwiches here and there it left a stained reddy lip which I really liked. It's a really bright red with a slight pinky undertone which is why I think I loved this one so much more than my chosen nude shade.
Overall my favourite shade out of the two was the Juianne Pure Red range. I would like to try more in the nudes range too.
They are reasonably priced at £6.99 and currently on a 3 for 2 at Boots hurry you can buy the whole collection HERE.
Which range is your favourite? Do you have any lipsticks from the Pure reds or the Nudes range?
