My experience with L’oreal Color Riche Lipstick Mulberry 710

Packaging

The packaging is something that I love. It comes in their signature style golden-silver pack with the name and number of the lipstick shade written on one end of the lipstick and a small mirror on the other end. The pack looks like metal, even though it is not. Also, it has a twist mechanism and it closes properly, which is a sturdy packaging which makes it an ideal product for travel.

Color and texture

The name of the shade is Mulberry and the shade number is 710. It has a smooth, butter-like consistency and spreads evenly on lips.

Fragrance

It smells like a perfume and this smell stays as long as the lipstick stays

Experience

I saw great reviews about this color riche range and decided to purchase a shade that I didn’t already own. So, this time, I chose a not-so-pink, not-so-light shade called “Mulberry” that (I thought) could be used any time of the day. The shade looks different on different skin tones and if you have pigmented lips like mine, the color will look absolutely different. I applied this lipstick once and I was impressed with the fragrance and the buttery-soft velvety texture and the feeling of this lipstick on my lips. It was light-weight and hydrated my lips. I usually prefer to exfoliate my lips, moisturize them well and then use a lipstick, since that way, the color comes out pretty well. I was happy with the way it looked on me. 3 hours from then, I saw that the lipstick had become so faint, it almost looked as if it wasn’t even there. I had to reapply it. It doesn’t attract dirt even though it is hydrating, but not worth buying since for that amount, there are better lipsticks in the market and these days, there is a wider range of choices to buy from and huge offers on products as well. So don’t waste your money on this. Sometimes, I feel the color riche lipstick stays pretty long(depending on the shade). In short, not worth a buy, girls.
