Entire Collection of L’Oreal Paris #MATTEADDICTION Lipstick Swatches and Preview
It seems all of a sudden the makeup brands have realised the huge market that India has! I see a new launch every single week and as happy as I am to see this change, I am loaded with more work than I can handle. So without much ado, I would like to start the swatch marathon with one of the latest launches from the house of Color Riche by L’Oreal Paris, The Matte Addiction Lipsticks. 😀
Internationally, they have launched about 15-18 shades, but in India it seems 9 shades (Or is that 7? not exactly sure about the number) were launched out of which only 5 are available online as of now. So I have the 5 shades with me to help you chose better. 😇

All L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipstick Swatches and First Impression
L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipsticks come in a luxe black matte gold rimmed packaging that has a leather pattern. These look incredibly classy. The cap shuts with a click making it travel friendly. The color number and name is mentioned at the bottom and with only one from each color family, it’s easy to locate in your lipstick collection.
Texture wise, these L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipsticks are amazingly smooth. The bullet is comparatively hard than most matte lipsticks, but it glides smoothly and coats lips with an even dose of color. The finish is a soft diffused matte which was a surprise for me. If you are expecting these to be intensely pigmented and creamy as the moist matte range then you will be surprised too. These matte addiction lipsticks are pigmented but not completely opaque except for the deeper hues. These can be layered to get a richer color payoff without getting patchy. These did not dry my lips even after back to back swatching .
L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipstick Shades:
I have 5 shades from the #MATTEADDICTION collection, namely
L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipstick Moka Chic
A n*ude rosy brown perfect for lighter skin tones. This shade will wash out dusky skin tones for sure. On me it kind of works with some color on my cheeks. If you are a neutral lipstick lover then this has to be in your collection but do keep your skin tone in mind.
L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipstick Pink A Porter:
My favorite from the 5 even though I was not very keen on this while swatching, but it instantly adds a girly charm to my face. ^_^ Takes years off my face and goes with my medium complexion so well. If i have to recommend one single shade from L’Oreal matte addiction collection then it has to be Pink A porter, a gorgeous coral pink and it would go well on most Indian complexions too! 😀
L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipstick Hype:
A peachy orange, Not a flattering shade to be honest cause orange lip colors look pretty only when they have a hint of red, at least on our kind of Indian complexion. The peachy tones in Hype may look too garish on dusky skin tones. Though I have to admit it looks very nice on my complexion. Maybe you should wait for my review, see it on me and then decide? It reminds me strongly of L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick Orange Power and Color Riche Matte by the same name “Hype” Shall share side by side swatches for your reference soon!
L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipstick Plum Tuxedo:
A plum pink with a hint of purple. This was the shade I was looking forward to most ever since the matte addiction lipsticks were launched in Australia. I was expecting it to be a lot more purple, but it ended up looking a lot more pink. The strong purple tone does make it different than most lipsticks I own. Most plum shades I own have a berry tone to them so it was really a nice change for me. If you are scared to try purple lipsticks, it’s better to test the waters with something like this. I did like how it turned out on me, but am not sold yet!
L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipstick Scarlet Silhouette:
An intense tomato red and the most pigmented of them all. It is a beautiful color and would suit most skin tones without much effort. However it is not an unique color by any chance.

Overall thoughts on L’Oreal Paris Matte Addiction Lipsticks :
Overall, I find this launch to be quite nice. L’Oreal already has an array of matte shades in it’s regular Color Riche and Moist Matte line, and this Matte addiction range is different only in terms of texture. The formula is comfortable, color payoff is good if not the best, but what makes me like this a lot is the diffused matte finish on lips. I adore bold mattes and moist matte lipstick range would be my preference if I have to chose between the two, but some colors just look a lot better in this soft matte finish (the lighter shades mostly) and this scores high on that.
I have two more ranges of lipsticks to swatch from two different brands. So watch this space for more! Do let me know if you would like me to review any particular shade on priority. 🙂
