L’Oreal Color Riche Intense Lipstick in ‘Red Passion'(297) Review & Swatches

ABOUT:Finally, easy to wear intense colours and tailor- made shades!
L’Oréal Paris has designed a lip stick range full of shades to bring out the best in every woman!

The L’Oréal Laboratories have selected only the purest and finest colour pigments, and the unique combination of Omega 3 Oils and Vitamin E to moisturise lips for smooth application and comfortable wear.





PACKAGING:The packaging is sturdy and feels luxurious with a dull gold outer cover.The shade name,number and shade indicator is provided at the bottom of the packaging.The lipstick bullet has L’oreal embossed on it.



SHADE:Red Passion is definitely a very passionate shade and not for a weak hearted as it is freakingly bright,bright red.The shade instantly provides a luminous boost to face and needs minimal makeup.A truest of red and a perfect shade for bridal wear.However,you have to be careful while applying this shade as it can bleed and stain the sides of the lips.It has fine silver shimmer in it which is barely visible on lips but does show up on the cotton ball when the lipstick is removed.



MY VIEWS:The texture of the lipstick is very smooth and creamy.It glides on easily on lips without tugging or pulling.The formula is very comfortable on lips and the shimmer present is non-gritty.It doesn’t settle in the lip lines.The shimmer isnt visible on lips but it adds a slight sheen to the lip shade.The lipstick is hydrating and doesn’t make my lips dry after it wears off.


Red passion is intensely pigmented and you have to be very careful while applying it as it can be easily overdone.I do wear reds but this is out and out intense red.The shade did not bleed but while applying,a bit of lipstick slipped towards the corners of the lis and a stain was left.The shade stays for good 8 hours as it leaves a heavy pinkish-red stain which goes away with a cleanser only.The lipstick bullet can melt easily in hot humid weather so its better to store it near a cool place.


RATING: 4.75/5

RECOMMENDATION: Definitely a worth checking shade!!! If you like your lip colors to stay and don’t mind wearing reds then this is a perfect shade for you!!
