Quick Review: L’Oreal Color Rich Lip Color Sticks!

Hello beautiful ladies! Just thought i would try to get something posted for you all today to read, and i’ve come across a pretty awesome lip product! Β So awesome, that i’ve included one in my Oct giveaway! So let’s check them out:

image

These sleek looking lip “sticks” by L’Oreal come in velvety matte (Le Matte) or irresistibly glossy (La Lacque)! Either way you go, you are going to have an EXTREMELY smooth and silky application experience! They are so soft and hydrating to the lip you will never leave the house without one of these, not to mention the small pointed tip makes for super on point accuracy when lining, then simply fill in the rest! No need for lip liner πŸ™‚ But you can if you want to of course.

Here are some lovely swatches i’ve done for you! As you can see the Matte is very very matte and looks so luxurious and velvety on the skin, and the gloss one has a beautiful moisturized healthy-looking shine…

Matte-R Of Fact is a stunning deeper berry purple/raspberry. Definitely a beautiful color for fall πŸ™‚ Choco-Lacque is the most gorgeous true nude/rose shade, it is one of my favorite lip colors right now. These both would look wonderful on any skin tone. ❀

Here they are applied on my actual lips:

Compare: Inexpensive L’Oreal & Maybelline NUDE Palettes

So i came across these two palettes at Walmart while i was doing some shopping. I figured for the price i could try them both out, and compare & review them on here for you guys! I’m always open to trying cheaper palettes & products even though i tend to lean more towards brand name makeup. All you really need is the know how, if you are skilled at applying makeup you can make something out of nothing, or in this case, making the most out of a cheap palette.

The larger palette to the left is the L’Oreal LA Palette NUDE 1. The smaller one to the right is the Maybelline “The Nudes” Palette. The smaller palette has two more color choices but the L’Oreal palette has elongated pans with much more product to use.

So, let’s compare. There are some very similar shades in this palette, such as the shimmer browns and gold colors. But here are some differences i noticed while swatching/playing around with these shadows:

  1. The L’Oreal shadows are extremely velvety soft to the touch and apply like a dream to a primed eyelid.
  2. The Maybelline shadows take a little more effort to get good color pay off, i had to layer it on to see the true color.
  3. The L’Oreal shadows have a nicer shimmer formula, they truly look metallic and dazzling on the skin.
  4. The maybelline shadow pan that is in matte black actually had a nice formula, blendable and pigmented. Would purchase it again as a single.
  5. The L’Oreal shadows are all very easily blendable & nicely pigmented.

Overall, i definitely would say i prefer the L’Oreal Β LA palette NUDE 1. It would be ideal for traveling since its sleek and thin, length really doesn’t matter if your slipping it into a big bag or suitcase. It also has a long mirror inside & snaps shut tight. Very wearable everyday shades that can be dressed up or down beautifully depending on occasion. The colors seem very well rounded and can be used around each other in many different looks. They also seem like more appealing, luxurious shades of nude all together. This one was a little more, it costs about $15.00 USD but it’s definitely worth it for some nice silky eyeshadows to throw in your collection. I believe the Maybelline palette was around $10.00 USD. Try one out for yourself!
