Last year I was all about neutrals and mattes but this year starts with a whole lot of brightness and bling with the L’Oreal Gold Obsession Collection. I am loving every product in this glam collection, so let’s just see what L’Oreal has curated this year.
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipsticks
Get Set to be #BoldInGold. L’Oreal Paris introduces the latest beauty trend from Paris – Gold Obsession by Color Riche. Infused with precious 24 carat gold* for illuminated lips. L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Gold Obsession delivers intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. Its unique formula contains Jojoba oil for unrivaled moisture and comfort along with matte gel technology to create an intense matte look.
I really love the autographed, black and gold ombre packaging of these lipsticks, they totally deserve to be added to one’s vanity. These lipsticks have a different formula and they are quite moisturizing and settle down to a unique finish which is not matte, it’s sort of gel-like finish which looks really nice. They have specks of gold glitter in them which is fine and not too gritty or over the top, it just makes the finish look a bit glossy and pretty glamorous. All the colors are bright and intense, they also tend to leave an even stain behind on the lips. These lipsticks are insanely pigmented, except le Gold, that has to be built up. They are quite creamy and smooth so be careful during application.
• Coral Gold: A bright coral with a lot of Orange. Don’t be scared by looking at the tube, it looks really pretty on the lips.
• Rouge Gold: Pretty cherry red shade
• Scarlet Gold: Bright red with yellow undertones, super pretty
• Rose Gold: Pink with slight purple undertones, brightens up the face
• Mocha Gold: Burgundy, deep brown with a hint of red, quite a statement color
• Plum Gold: Gorgeous deep plum
• Le Gold: Metallic gold that can be used on its own or over another shade to change any lip color into a metallic one. This can also be used as an eyeshadow or a highlighter.
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Gold La Palette
La Palette Gold consists of a unique selection of 10 exclusive shimmer shades, from subtle pinks to bold, shimmery golds and purples that allow you to unleash your creative side and create multiple glamorous eye looks for every occasion.
The La Palette Gold consists of 10 shimmery, shiny, shades of eyeshadow. The first three as you can see from the swatches below, are not too pigmented and have to be built up, others have a decent pigmentation. I like how this palette consists of shimmery variants of blue, purple, black and forest green. It’s a nice palette to create a lot of looks, however, I feel that it would have been quite a versatile palette with the addition of a transition matte shade and if only the gold shade were a bit more shimmery like the Le Gold lipstick. Anyhoo, it’s a great palette if you like glitter eyeshadows.
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche A L’Huile Nail Paint
The collection also includes two beautiful nail colors in hues or coral and purple. I love both of them and the quality is amazing. I already own 5 shades from the range and will be reviewing them together.
- Violet Vendome
- Coral Trianon
My Favourite lip colors from the collection are Le Gold, Plum Gold, Rose Gold, and Coral Gold.
