L'Oreal Florid Pink Colour Riche Le Gloss
L’Oreal Florid Pink Colour Riche Le Gloss

L’Oreal Florid Pink Colour Riche Le Gloss ($7.99 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a cool-toned, blue-based cotton candy pink with a creamy finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it did settle slightly into lip lines. Edward Bess First Kiss is warmer. MAC Next Fad is warmer, more shimmery. MAC Saint Germain is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Pink Nouveau is more opaque, slightly cooler-toned. MAC Petite Indulgence is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Pucker-Up Pink Colour Riche Le Gloss ($7.99 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a sheer pink with pink and silver shimmer. The gloss really appears mostly colorless applied, but there is a lot of visible shimmer. Urban Decay Trashed has finer shimmer. MAC Fashion Fanatic is milkier. MAC Demure is lighter. MAC Floating Lotus is similar. Bobbi Brown Pastel is also similar. See comparison swatches.

Colour Riche Le Gloss has a very smooth, jelly-like texture that is comfortable to wear and non-sticky.  It is creamy, glossy, and the pigmentation seems to vary from shade to shade.  They have a strong, sweet,burnt caramel scent but no discernible taste (it reminded me of the older Urban Decay Lipsticks).  Florid Pink lasted two hours on me, and Pucker-Up Pink a shorter one and a half hours.  The formula is moderately hydrating, so if you don’t mind reapplying often, you may still like the formula.

Both shades are part of a limited edition collection that I’ve only seen in stores–I was personally hoping it would go online, because none of the lip products have any type of seal in-store. After I checked three or four glosses/lipsticks and found them tested, I walked away without buying anything. I really wish L’Oreal (and all brands) would seal products that sit on displayers for any and all to grab.

Ew! It seems reasonable they could at least put one of those shrink wrap/perforated plastic deals on them. I’d be upset if three or four (!!) were tested too.

I hear your frustratioin Christine! Just yesterday I was in CVS and wanted to grab a few products on sale from Rimmel, and every single item I picked up was very obviously tested! Brands need to understand that all it takes is a simple plastic seal to keep these products hygenic… I ended up with a Neutrogena product instead, because it was sealed and a similar color…

It’s really weird that there isn’t a standard/requirement in place for that, because many brands do and then you have a few that don’t or just won’t for a particular product.

I love NYX but its impossible to get some from Ulta, the pencils and lip products are always tested and the concealers have clearly been dabbed!

I’m almost certain this collection is becoming a part of the permanent collection. The lipsticks at least have been added to the permanent displays in my area. The glosses could be limited edition. I actually don’t love this formula, too much reapplication is required. But it is so comfortable. Almost like a lip balm. You should look into the new maybelline collection. There was a bunch of purple lipsticks and glosses that everyone was abuzz about.

I am also extremely frustrated by the fact the companies don’t seal their products. I don’t purchase many products from loreal or nyx simply for that reason. Essence even sells mascaras at ulta that are unsealed, which I cannot understand.

That’s what I thought – and then I saw L’Oreal post on their Facebook about creating a limited edition lip and nail collection called Color Me Pink (which is where these are from), so I was very confused… The display distinctly said “NEW!” and they normally do say limited edition – which is why I was hopeful to see them online but no luck yet.

I own one of these and despite loving the color (golden splash) I hardly wear it because it wears off in record time. I’m serious, most glosses last 1-2 hours without drinking or eating, this lasts more in the range of 20 minutes.

I don’t know if it’s just that particular shade, but the texture almost feels oily to me? It has a very slippery, slide-around feel on the lips.

Pretty colors, but totally with you on the packaging. It’s the same reason I won’t buy Essence items any more. The quality isn’t bad, especially for the price, but they don’t seal anything either. I’ve seen everything from lipsticks that were obviously tested (gross, but cleanable in a pinch) to mascaras that were dried out when I got them home and I realized they had been opened before (I don’t want to lose my vision over saving a few bucks… GROSS)

It’s like the older I get, the more of a germaphobe I become, which is not to say it’s rational at all… but I just can’t. I’d rather not take the risk!

I hate it when I go to the drugstore and everything been touched/opened/destroyed! It’s particularly aggravating because, here, there are usually testers available!

Me too, Vanessa 🙁 I mean, even at Sephora, because some of them are out (even in boxes), I usually buy online… but that’s me being SUPER crazy, whereas this is just obvious testing!

No wrapping on product is just an extra expense that some companies aren’t willing to take on. It even requires a special machine to shrink wrap. But that doesn’t even stop people from peeling that in the store….step into Walmart and you’ll see wrappers all over the displays and floors.

It definitely doesn’t stop everyone, but it can let customers who want to buy know they haven’t been tampered with 🙂

I really hate it when I go to Ulta and Target to find products that have been tampered with as well as being used! People should realize that when you test products on your eyes, lips and/or face of a product that’s been tampered with that it has bacteria that can cause some serious infections. The Wal-Mart that I go to has the cosmetics section locked in a glass case and people have to ask the associate to get it for them.

I really like the florid pink! I was looking for a pink lip gloss this morning and found – none. Like where did all my pink glosses go? Oh, well .. I’ll have to pick one of these up this weekend.

Monica.

I totally agree with you Christine. I don’t understand why people have to open 3 or 4 of the same shade when there’s already one that’s been tested. It’s so gross.

I’m pretty sure ALL products at drugstores here in Australia are sealed. I’m trying to think, but I’m pretty sure they are. I’m going to check next time I go!

It completely slays me when companies don’t include packaging on products like lip gloss/lipsticks to signal that these are untouched. My local drugstores have started to tape such products shut before putting them out on shelves which I am thankful for, but I feel that for a product that is so largely mass produced – how hard is it to slap some packaging on to make it somewhat more hygienic?

Well one of the many reasons that I only buy high end makeup it´s because it´s never tested, always brand new and pristine from the makeup counters. I remember going to a small store at the mall just out of curiosity and to see if I liked any nail polish from there (the only DS product I buy) , and when I looked at the lip products from jordana and other similar brands almost all of them had been tested very obviously, some had been even smeared on the lipstick/gloss cap, it was so gross 🙁 .

A friendly warning to those of you that don’t like strong smells in your makeup: these seriously have the most DISGUSTING, extremely strong scent! I’m not one who’s normally sensitive to that sort of thing, but holy crap… I wanted to gag every time I applied this. On top of that, as some other people have said, it dried and disappeared on me after about 25-35 minutes. It’s also on the thicker side and sticky. Needless to say, I took this back.
