The new non-drying lipstick you need to make a bold statement

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Addiction Lipstick

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this unique hydrating lipstick

Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / September 03 2018

The product

We all know that a statement lip can make us feel a million times better, but there’s nothing worse than a bold colour that leaves lips feeling dry and uncomfortable. Or a glossy finish that feels sticky and tacky. Thankfully L’Oréal Paris’ latest addition to the iconic Colour Riche range is solving those problems with the Shine Addiction Lipstick. It delivers richly pigmented colour with a hydrating formula that won’t dry out your lips, and a glossy finish that gives the perfect amount of shine (without feeling heavy or sticky). With a huge 16 shades to choose from, this product is set to become your new handbag staple.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent three shades of the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Addiction Lipstick to a panel of women aged between 18 and 54 who love rocking statement lip looks but hate dry lips.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Addiction Lipstick:

The high-shine finish: Members loved how the lipstick delivered a glossy finish that didn’t feel sticky. The panel were surprised by how confidently they could wear a high-shine lipstick without needing to worry about the classic hair-stuck-on-lips debacle.

How hydrating the formula was: The Review Crew® trialled this product during winter - AKA dry lip season - which was the perfect time to put the lipstick’s hydrating claims to the test. Members commented on how soft and moisturised their lips felt after using the lipstick.

The versatility of the shades: Reviewers enjoyed how versatile the shades were for creating different looks and found themselves wearing the lipsticks not just in the evening, but also during the day and to the office. They also really liked how adaptable the shades were for a variety of skin tones.

The verdict

“Wow! I cannot express how much I love the formula of these lipsticks. They glide on with ease, aren’t patchy whatsoever and provide plenty of pigmentation. Matte lipsticks dry out my lips too much but thankfully these are a velvet/satin feel.”

“These lippies are pigment-full, fade off over time, leaving a beautiful hint of colour and super soft lips. No dryness. This product delivered all that it promised.”

“As an avid lip balm wearer, on account of constantly dry lips, I tend not to wear lipstick very often. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick has changed this! Pigmented colours and high shine with a moisturising balm texture ensures my lips stay nourished whilst allowing a pop of colour. Great colour range to take you from day to night in a flash!”
