L’Oreal Paris Color Riche 381 Silky Toffee Matte Lipstick Swatch and Review

Hey my gorgies 😀

Its summer. :’( My most dreaded season with my skin woes, my hair woes, pimples, rashes and what not. :-/ But thank goodness nothing can lessen my craze for those perfect nude lips which won’t wash me out, look sick or feel too heavy/greasy on lips. I went out really to look for Crazy Fuchsia in this range launched during the cannes film festival, 😛 but ended up hating the color and came home with this one instead! L’Oreal Paris Color Riche 381 Silky Toffee Matte Lipstick  ! Doesn’t it sound so yummy already? Silky toffee…mmmm 🙂

What L’Oreal says :

Color Riche lipstick combines luxurious colour with lasting hydration for an ultra-glamorous look. The Color Riche Matte range comprises of 7 glamorous shades.

Price: 825/- INR  :’(

My Take on L’Oreal Paris Color Riche 381 Silky Toffee Matte Lipstick :

This matte range from L’Oreal also comes in their usual subtle classy golden packaging with a click lock cap and a pointed bullet which makes it both easy to apply and carry. 🙂

The texture as everybody knows is smooth, nice and creamy which does not feel very heavy or greasy on lips and applies easily and evenly resulting in a semi-matte finish. 🙂 It smoothes out lip lines and in spite of its name is not *matte* at all!

So does it succeed in being my perfect nude?

I think the answer lies beforehand as after going through MAC Hug me, Velvet teddy, Modesty, Spirit, I have still been on my nude lippie hunt and I think truthfully it ends here! The S.A had lined my lips lightly with l’oreal lip pencil Toffee *which I also bought* and added just a dab of their lip gloss Really Rose in the middle. <3 voila. *_* I was transfixed at my own reflection. 🙂 The texture wins over the drier MAC Mattes  and the peachy toned yellowish-beige somehow does not wash me out or make me look ill! Well done L’Oreal. <3

The lipstick lasted about 4-5 hours on me and is transferable owing to its finish.

The lipstick smells of the typical sweet L’Oreal scent which fades within minutes of application. 🙂

The Pros of L’Oreal Silky Toffee:

  • Smart, classy travel friendly packaging with tight cap.
  • Creamy, smooth texture applies easily and evenly on lips 🙂
  • Smoothes out lip lines and does not dry out lips at all!
  • A yellow toned perfect beige nude which will be the perfect nude lippie for girls like me who have pink undertones 🙂 *yippeeeeeee*
  • Lasts approx 5 hours .
  • Pleasant sweet smell 🙂

The Cons of L’Oreal Silky Toffee:

  • Too pricey as always 🙁
  • Does not even come with spf :-/
  • Matte lovers will be very disappointed in the creamy finish from a range labeled as *matte*

My rating: 4/5 *too many cons but too much points you ask? That’s ‘coz its my perfect nude!*

Do I recommend?

Oohh totally 😀 I know there are so many dark eyes-nude lips look fans out here like me who do not want to always scream *look I am wearing lipstickkkk* , but instead have their own polished classic style statement. <3 Creamy lovely smooth texture, the perfect fleshy peachy underton-ed beige lipstick which does not wash me out and looks amazing with a dab of gloss! Highly recommend L’Oreal silky toffee. <3Oooh yes plus I heart the name too. ^_^
