What a surprise, a beauty purchase inspired from Anna a.k.a ViviannaDoesMakeup!! Since getting my braces off last year I've thrown myself back into the world of bright lipsticks especially in these "summer" months. While browsing the aisles of Boots I spotted this beauty which I'd read about a couple of days before. The L'oreal Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in 228 VIP is simply to die for. I don't actually own too many matte bright colours as I tend to favour the creamier finish to a lipstick simply for comfort, but this has been a game changer. For a matte formula this glides on beautifully the lips to create a stunning summer lip. I also personally love that this has a slight parma violet smell to it - although I know this won't be up everyones alley!
In the blog post that Anna put up she has blotted the lipstick out a bit to give more of a stain look to the lips, which I have tried doing and does look pretty. Mainly I tend to wear this as a bright here-I-am shade, and with a great staying power manages to last through a few cocktails with friends. The coral colour seemingly brings out my blue eyes which always earns a product brownie points for achieving. Often I'll be seen sporting this with a very neutral eye, sometimes just lashings of mascara. A dab of bronzer and you've got a simple but looks like you've put lots of effort in look. It's also the first L'oreal Lipstick I've ever tried (that I can think of) and I have to admit I am very impressed. I'll definitely be having another browse to see what other colours they have in the range.
Have you tried this lipstick? What's your favourite coral?
