First Impressions: L'oreal Colour Riche in Sugar Plum

I first heard of L'oreal Colour Riche in Sugar Plum (P625/$7.16) 4-5 years ago back when Youtube beauty gurus were a new thing*~ It's one of those lip shade that has been around forever.

I really like the color. I don't see it as a plum shade however,  I think it looks quite (warm) pinky-brown on me. It's really beautiful - it's the perfect my-lips-but-better kind of shade. Very easy to wear, and easy to pair with any kind of makeup.

That's where all my positive comments end, though. I honestly have nothing great to say about this formula of the lipstick. Although, to be honest I  might just be little bias because I like my lipstick matte. Like, dry as the Sahara desert matte. The L'oreal Colour Riche line isn't only frosty, I also noticed that it has chunks of glitters.

It's pretty creamy, too, so it tends to slip off my lips after just an hour (or a couple of hours, at the most). I'm just meh about this lipstick, and I could have gotten a better lipstick (or two! - ahem Wet n Wild) for the price.

As always, drugstore cosmetics here are insanely overpriced. I wouldn't mind that much if the product delivers. But for this one, nope, better to just skip it. Or chuck it to the bin. Eugh.

What's your favorite L'oreal product? :)



  1. The color looks great on you! It's something I would wear too but I am a matte lipstick lover as well! Lovely color though! Sayang!

    1. Thanks Elaine! I really like to color, the lipstick finish, not so much!
