PRODUCT REVIEW: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Moisture Matte Lipstick – Orange Power

written by Payal Thaker

Buying the right lipstick has always been my thing! Somehow I’ve developed a kind of superpower which tells me exactly which lipstick is going to be good or bad on me, as soon as I swatch it on my hand…Haha!


I was at the L’Oreal counter the other day restocking my skincare products, and the girl at the counter started showing me Color Riche Moisture Matte Lipsticks. I was literally stumped! Because I don’t know how missed these shades and never saw them before. All the colors from this Color Riche Range were damn gorgeous and very pretty looking.

I was dancing with joy inside my heart as soon as she swatched this orange shade on my hand, because I knew I had finally found a gorgeous orange that I will love with all my heart. As soon as I got this orange baby home, I played with it as much as I could.

L’Oreal claims that this lipstick is “a lipstick that delivers intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. Color Riche Moisture Matte’s unique formula contains Jojoba oil for unrivaled moisture and comfort, along with Matte Gel technology to create an intense matte look. Velvet Matte Gel technology is combined with deep pigments and Jojoba oil to give a deep color pay-off, maintaining ultimate moisture and comfort.

What I Think:

Packaging: It’s really good. It comes in a pretty case with a small square shaped button sort of thing that indicates the lipstick shade, which accurately matches the shade of the lipstick inside. So if you buy more than one from this range, you can easily pick the one you want.

The color is a very peachy matte orange, which doesn’t look dirty or weird after applying it on the lips; unlike most of the orange shades available on the market. The best part is that inspite of its matte texture, it’s still very soft; provides good moisture and glides easily on the lips. It stays for a good 4-5 hrs and leaves an orange tint, which looks very natural.

Styling Tip: Pair the lipstick with a bright orange nail paint and gold accessories, to give a vibrant and sun-kissed look for the summer. 🙂
