L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus Intense Lipstick

ponedeljek, november 07, 2022

A while ago L’Oreal released a collection of 12 nude shade Les Nus, which they say have “an intense, smooth and creamy formula”. You may remember that a year two before they released matte nude lipsticks (Color Riche Matte Free The Nudes), one of which I also own and it’s a great quality lipstick. I saw this shade on one of the few blogs that still do swatches and wanted it immediately, since it looked like the perfect nude and it’s has indeed become my staple. 

Texture & finish: Formula is high quality, it feels so well-made and has great pigmentation. It’s creamy, comfortable and smooth, so far it’s be best non-matte lipstick I’ve tried. Finish is satin-creamy, so not very shiny, but far from matte and this formula suits dry lips as well. 

Shade: 173 Nu Impertinent is an excellent my-lip-but-better shade for my skin tone and I just love it because it looks so natural and defines the lips. It’s about a half a shade lighter than my favourite lip liner Essence’s Big Proposal that I’ve been using for shaping my lips for a few years now (shade is discontinued, but I stocked up before it was gone) and once I searched the entire drugstore, swatching everything to find something similar in a lipstick form – turns out all I had to do it give it a year or two and I’ll find what I want.  

Staying power: It lasts longer than most creamy
