Boy, getting back into the groove of blogging after a week long vacation is pretty tough and something I really had to push myself to do! We spent 4 nights in Atlantic City and we had SUCH a great time. The weather was perfect, the kids were good, and there was a lot to do! The water was about 20° warmer than the ocean in NH, so I actually went in! Here is a little collage of our trip…we can’t wait until next year’s vacation already.
I hadn’t been to CVS in what felt like forever, so I decided to pop in real quick before going on vaca to see if they had anything new. I didn’t see any new things that interested me, so to feed my never-ending lipstick addiction I browsed over a few brands.
The L’Oreal Colour Riche ones caught my eye because I don’t actually own any from that line. I had some extra bucks from a previous purchase and if you spent $15 on L’Oreal you got $5 more extra bucks, so I picked out 2 shades.
Description from L’Oreal:
“Colour Riche® Lipcolour is richer, creamier and more moisturizing than ever before. In addition to nourishing ingredients like Omega 3 and Vitamin E, the formula is enriched with Argan Oil to condition and soften lips.“
The first thing I noticed upon applying this lipstick is the scent. It is very strong and reminiscent of that old time lipstick that my grandmother used to wear. If you are sensitive to scents, you probably won’t like these because it does linger for a while. I am not typically adverse to lipstick scents, but even this takes me a while to get used to.
HOWEVER, if you can get past the scent these lipsticks are actually pretty great. They are nicely pigmented and SO creamy and comfortable on the lips.
Saucy Mauve is a lovely purple mauve that is richly pigmented. I am so in love with this shade, it’s definitely my favorite of the 2!
Wisteria Rose (an newer shade) is a warm medium pink, that is slightly less opaque than Saucy Mauve.
These are kind of a love/hate for me. While I LOVE the colors and the texture, I HATE the scent and I wish they could get rid of it without sacrificing the formula. I will say that I probably will buy a few more of these in some fall shades though… 😉
Have you tried these? How do you feel about strongly scented beauty products?
