The first make-up product launched by L’Oréal Paris, Color Riche Lipstick boasts a total of 350 lipstick shades over the last 30 years! The first advert featured the gorgeous Andie MacDowell, who later went on to become a spokesperson for the brand, and since then, Color Riche has become one of the most popular lipsticks worldwide.
What makes its composition so special?
It contains a pigment-dispersing lipid, which highlights the tones of pigments, resulting in a true colour. Plant-based oils in the formula allow for easy application and a soft feeling on the lips, while an added run-off prevention agent makes sure it stays in place for hours.
To celebrate this iconic product, L’Oréal Paris is releasing 20 new colours in 2015 – yip, that’s right, you’ll have a whopping 20 new shades to swoon over!
These 20 lipsticks are divided into four colour families, each with an iconic shade:
Red: 335 Carmin Saint-Germain
Truly Parisian, these shades looks at recreating the first red Color Riche lipstick worn by Andie MacDowell.
Orange: 238 Orange After Party
A range of oranges to suit women of different complexions, these really appeal to the woman who isn’t afraid to show off a statement lip.
Purple: 462 Préli Minaire
Perhaps the most daring of all the shades, these rich purples are reminiscent of the amethysts of the Place Vendôme in France.
Pink: 132 Magnolia Irreverent
Inspired by the Luxembourg Garden in Paris and all its striking magnolias, these highly sophisticated pinks are both beautiful and fun.
