You know when you find a lip product that just works for you? This is one of those products for me. L'Oreal recently came out with these Colour Riche Balms that are available in 8 shades. I went with a mauve color to get away from my usual nude attack when it comes to lip products. Here is what I thought about this balm.
I have really been loving this lip balm ever since I bought it. I can't stand how amazing the packaging makes it look sleek and more expensive than it actually is. The color that I bought, Tender Mauve, is definitely a "my lips but better" color which makes it more harder to stay away from it. I also notice that my lips feel smoother and lightly more moisturized than before.
The only thing that bothers me is the way it tastes. I mean, obviously I know your not supposed to eat it, (swear I'm not), but if you just slightly get a taste of it, it's awful. I can deal with that being that I love the way this balm makes my lips look and feel. I like how it still feels like a balm so it's not sticky at all, but yet gives your lips this shine almost like a lip gloss.
If you are wondering how these compare to the Revlon Lip Butters, they don't. The Lip Butters and this are not the same, being that each one gives a different look and feel to your lips. Lip Butter comes in way more colors while this one only comes in 8. I do love the feel of the these more than the lip butters, just personal preference. I still love the Lip Butters, just a different kind of love.
L'Oreal Colour Riche balms retail for $7.95 (prices vary). I bought mine a Target for $6.99. Just depends on where you find them.
Let me know what you think of these. Have you tried them?
