Staying True, A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 4, 2015


Brand Name: L’Oreal Colour Riche Boosting Serum Lipstick

Colour: 502 True Red

Price: £8.69

Lipcote Rating: 4.5 / 5

We didn’t have great success with L’Oreal Colour Riche last time as we found it too drying. But their newer offering has a serum in the middle, so we thought we’d try it again…

We chose the shade True Red – a classic bright red. The lipstick itself is interesting, with a column of serum which is a slightly lighter colour than the lipstick running right down the middle. It could be a bit of a gimmick, but it really works! L’Oreal says the serum inside plumps and enriches lips, and we found that it really moisturised without being greasy. It helps the colour glide on smoothly, and makes it much more even, giving an ultra flattering glowy look to the lips, but it’s not too shiny so it works perfectly with Lipcote. The packaging is a sleek gold case with a red band around the middle, which looks luxurious and expensive.

We’re impressed with this lippie, and reckon it’s a massive improvement on their normal Colour Riche line. We’re just hoping that they launch lots more shades in the not-too-distant future!

Love, Lipcote x
