A few months ago, I was obsessed with the Revlon lip butters. Not long after, I won a giveaway that included two Loreal Colour Riche balms. And let me just say... these are LOVE!
The Loreal Colour Riche balms are gorgeous gorgeous tinted lip balms in lipstick packaging. Very feminine and pretty to look at.
The texture is balmy and soft. I love the way it feels on my lips! Almost a gummy feel to it. It feels quite nice on the lips - non sticky, and buttery. It's like a nice layer of smoothness. Light and glossy, no filmy feel.
The shade I have is called Pink Satin and it is oh so lovely. I'd say this shade is like a milky baby pink. It's creamy and smooth. There is only that hint of color that makes it rich in moisture and low in maintenance. Can be applied anywhere, with or without a mirror. This particular shades contains no glitter, shimmer or micro anything. It has a rich buttery sheen with a touch of baby pink.

It's definitely something that's an all-in-one for me because the hint of color is absolutely wearable. I haven't tried the other colors yet but I have a feeling they are just as nice. The Revlon Lip Butters are equally amazing too but you can't really compare the two as this one is marketed more as a sheer tinted balm and the Revlon ones a lipstick. But they do have similar packaging, and a big range of shades.
Like a MMBL shade - very natural shade. Hydrating AND moisturizing

Overall, I'm very in love with this lippie. I think people who'd love it will be people who prefer balms over lipsticks and enjoy wearing lip products with very sheer coverage. For a drugstore product, I think these Loreal balms are gorgeous and a gal should own more than one! They're priced at a reasonable $6-$7, and depending on sales and whatnot, could be less. Which is a YAY in my book, always!
Have any of you tried these lip color balms?
