Loreal Colour Riche Lip Balm {Obsession}

IMG_8426Obsession is the truth!  This is what I’ve been wearing on my lips lately: on repeat!  This winter I’ve really gotten into tinted chapsticks and balms.  I’ve written earlier about Burt’s Bees and Almay, which I love, but these Colour Riche Lip Balms from Loreal are AMAZING!


They are pretty straight forward: they moisturize and tint your lips.  I’d say they would be best described as a sheer lipstick with a touch of gloss.  Here’s why I love them:

*They keep the lips moist (especially in the dry winter months.)

*You can experiment with bright colors or tones without being obnoxious.  Think of a sheer pop of red or pink….they are fantastic for daytime.

*If you like a slight bit of color on your lips or are an avid chapstick user, this gives you more glam and fullness than an ordinary chapstick.

*It’s a perfect cheat to make your lips look bigger by using these….you can draw a little outside of the lines and it’s very forgiving.  It makes the power pout look super voluminous!

*They are a great gateway into lipstick wearing if you are afraid of wearing color, but want to venture out.

*There are a million shade choices for every mood or scenario!

*Great low price tag!


Funny that I just made a love list of why these balms are awesome, but you know me…..if I’m obsessed I have to share!  I made a quick little video so that you can (kind of) see them in action.  All the colors go on a lot more sheer than they look in the tube.  Hope you enjoy the tip!

PS I just arrived in Milan from New York (CIAO!) and am trying to stay awake to fight the jet lag while typing this… if I sound like a weirdo or there are any typos….SO SO SORRY!! Excited to be back in Milan, and will be kicking off Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday.

    Hi! Which color are you wearing in the first set of photos? I don’t really wear lip color often and I’m looking for a hint of moisturizing color that’s a my-color-but-better shade (like your first photos). These are so pretty on you!

      Thank you so much! To be honest it’s been a while since I wrote that, but I’m pretty sure I’m wearing #219 Plush Plum! They are awesome lip products and I think you will LOVE IT! Cheers! X
