L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Star Lipsticks Review & Swatches

Posted by Kania Safitri at 4:28 AM
Hello beauties...

Well Now I'd like to review and swatch L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Star Lipsticks. I was delighted to receive this Collection Star Lipsticks from L'oreal Paris Indonesia. Just by looking at the lipsticks when I opened the beauty box, I was truly in excited!!
L'oreal takes inspiration from some of the most beautiful celebrities in the world for their new Collection Star-let me swatch them for you! Oh, if you're looking for a set of nice nudes, you might as well look into this!
Collection Star is a limited collection of celebrity- inspired lipsticks-each region where this collection is released features specific L'Oreal celebrity endorsers and for the Asia, Each of the three shades were picked to be three beauty icons' perfect nudes: Jennifer Lopez's "Barely Greige", Sonam Kapoor's "Barely Plum", and Gong Li's "Barely Moka". By inspiring three beautiful nude shades for Fall. I find all of the colors beautiful - but are any of them actually a true nude on my lips?
The packaging this lipstick is house in a golden tube, The gold bullets are sleek and classy with a signature of every celebrity the lipstick represent, and has a shade indicator on the front. What I immediately noticed from this lipstick is the the shape of the tip.The formula these lipsticks are creamy. Seriously, these glides on very smoothly and does not feel heavy on the lips too. I do find the shades not too pigmented except for the barely moka. I recommend using a lip liner or a lip primer to get the lightest shades (Greige, Plum) to look solid. A base would also increase the staying power of these lipstick- otherwise, they just last about 2-3 hours on me. I need two to three swipes of these lipsticks to show up on my lips. On the swatches below, I did three to four swipes so they looked really pigmented. Despite the lack of pigmentation, I do find these lipsticks to be buildable. These give off a natural sheen when worn except for the shade Barely Greige.
I think shades very wearable for Indonesia skin tone and perfect for weddings. Yes, I admit some may appear too light or too unnatural but since these lipsticks are blendable and creamy, mixing them with other lipsticks is a great idea.

BARELY MOKA (GONG LI)

This is inspired by Gong Li. This is definitely the perfect nude. This is a true terracotta shade. This  is a gorgeous reddish chocolate shade that would be the perfect nude for dark skin tones. If your fair to mid-toned though, it would be a nice throwback to the 90s lip. It's chic and perfect for the upcoming fall season.
My favorite in this collection! It's a gorgeous neutral shade and the hint of orange in it doesn't give you that too serious vibe, and its slightly shiny finish doesn't make it look flat and boring-this is the Collection Star product that I've been wearing a lot lately!
BARELY NUDE (JENNIFER LOPEZ)
This shade is inspired by none other than J.Lo. This is a pale beige shade and has a luminous finish. It's glossy and it's perfect for a smokey eye look. It can make you look pale if your eyes don't have any makeup at all. Must be worn with full face!
This is a frosty, semi-sheer beige lipstick with golden shimmer. Sounds like a bad idea on the get go, I know, but it surprisingly works for me! As long as I wear heavy eye makeup, that is. Barely Greige is the color that's the most nude on me out of the three. I particularly like the semi-sheer coverage of this product, thus it doesn't look chalky and make me look sick, which is the problem with some bold nude colors
BARELY PLUM (SONAM KAPOOR)
This shade is inspired by Sonam Kapoor. If you're not familiar with Sonam Kapoor, she's an Indian global style icon. Going back to this color, it's a much wearable and yellow- skin. I like that it's nude, but still gives my lips a touch of color. This is a pale mauvey pink. This my second fave shade. It's a pale mauvey color that gently toes the line between gorgeous lips and zombie lips. I think I'd go for gorgeous, haha. It's warm and pigmented enough to work for my skin tone.
