L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Privee lipstick collection review: Liya Kebede

January 28, 2014

Nearly four months since my rant about not being able to find the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Privee collection shades in the darker tones, my prayers were finally answered.

After randomly popping into a Boots in Balham, I actually managed to find the Liya Kebede and Freida Pinto shades stocked alongside all the other colours. ABOUT TIME.

I knew just from looking at them which one would probably be best for my skin tone but I bought the Barely Moka in a move of support for WOC because of the fact it was actually stocked needed to be appreciated.

Anyway, I’m going to stop getting sidetracked and roll straight on to the review.

So Barely Moka is the only shade by a black woman. Tsk. But when the woman in question is the stunning model Liya Kebede, you can’t stay mad for long.

The shade is meant to be a  “barely brown nuance that adds a charming shade to the lips for a contrast to dark skin that comes up trumps.”

Review:

I seriously struggle to find a nude lipstick and I had really high hopes for the new Privee collection. A quick swatch test made me a little bit weary because the colour came up in a much deeper brown than I expected after reading the description.

But seeing as my lips aren’t the same colour as the inside of my arm, I decided that hope might not be lost just yet.

The lipstick has a nice, sweet smell and it felt really soft and moisturising. The application is so smooth and lovely that I was pretty gutted to see that the shade was indeed to dark for me. Sigh.

Wearing a plain lip balm is going to have to be my continued nude look until I can find the lippie that can make it a little bit more dressed up.

Verdict: A really lovely lipstick that is much more suited to WOC with brown tones rather than the yellow-brown tones like mine. The collection is definitely worth a look but be sure to swatch and compare A LOT before you buy.

    I am in Target eyeing it now. But I opened it and could immediately see it is too dark for me. Bummer, a good nude is hard to find!
