Review and Giveaway: L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Electric Lip Collection

10 April 2015

Heads up: the new L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Electric Lip Collection is not for the faint of heart.


Leave your nude, MLBB, and vampy lipsticks at home in the meantime because this summer, BOLD is in.

Orange Power, Glamour Fuchsia, Lincoln Rose, Touch of Amaranth, Pop Up Pink
These lipsticks are so pigmented that two swipes yield this much color
Glamour Fuchsia, Lincoln Rose, Orange Power, Pop Up Pink, Touch of Amaranth
I will be posting individual swatches of the lipsticks on me but first, I'd like to talk about the formula. I love L'Oreal Color Riche lipsticks because even though L'Oreal is a drugstore brand, its lipsticks never felt cheap. I own and have reviewed several L'Oreal Color Riche lipsticks already (Fairy Touch and Barely Moka are two of my favorites) and I love them because they are non-drying, the colors complement my skin tone, and they feel luxurious to the lips. As for the shades in the Color Riche Electric collection, I'd have to say I got a bit scared when I first saw them in person. The press release wasn't lying when it described the shades as electrifying! My lips can also get a bit dry sometimes so I was worried that the matte shades will look horrible on me. Buuut as the swatches below will prove, I didn't have anything to worry about. The three matte lipsticks (Glamour Fuchsia, Lincoln Rose, Orange Power) are true mattes that are flat but never boring, while the satiny lipsticks (Pop Up PinkTouch of Amaranth) are more wet and creamy. They are very easy to apply, matte lipsticks included, and do not tug on the lips. The matte lipsticks also tended to stay on a bit longer than the other two.

I tried to take individual photos of the lipsticks but my iPhone couldn't seem to capture the raspberry redness of Lincoln Rose (it looks too orange in the photos) nor the exquisite milky-pink beauty of Pop Up Pink so I decided to forego them and just post my lip swatches. Aside from the L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Electric lipsticks, I wasn't wearing anything else on my face in the photos below so you can see how the lipsticks instantly brightened up my face. But then again, with shades as bold as these, you wouldn't really need to pile on too much. A clean canvas, a Color Riche Electric lipstick, and a simple cat eye and the glam factor would already skyrocket!

Glamour Fuchsia
Won't you look at that and tell me how gorgeous the color is! This was the color I wore on my birthday. Doesn't it look like the kind of lipstick Barbie would wear? This is my second favorite from the bunch.

Lincoln Rose
I was reminded of raspberries and candy apples when I was testing this out. I had a hard time choosing, but this is my favorite because I have a lot of red lipsticks but I don't have anything like this in my collection. I wore this at the Easter Komiket.

Orange Power
I already have an orange lipstick but it was my first time to try a matte orange lipstick. It's such a unique and fun color that I see myself wearing with my teal eyeliner.

Pop Up Pink
It's a creamy milky pink that may look mild and sweet in this photo but looks more neon in person. This reminded me of OFRA 205 but I liked the formula of this one better. It also looked like a prettier version of MAC Pink Nouveau (that no matter what I did, I couldn't get to work for me so I just gave it away to Kira).

Touch of Amaranth
This one reminded me of my favorite MAC Girl About Town. Aside from Glamour Fuchsia, this is another lipstick shade I could imagine Barbie wearing.

You know how some makeup products can "Insta-boost" your mood? These shades are so vibrant they could easily chase all your woes away! When I have any of these shades on, I feel like I want to bust my heels out and take over the world!

These colors last on me for at least five hours. Aside from the highly-pigmented and creamy formula and the outlandishness of these shades, my favorite thing about these Color Riche Electric lipsticks are the fact that they don't settle on my lip lines. Any bold color would look ridiculous if that happens, but you're safe with L'Oreal Paris.

I also liked its elegant rose gold (for the matte shades) and gold (for the satin shades) packaging that doesn't feel flimsy at all. It's also classy enough that you wouldn't feel embarrassed to whip it out for a quick touch-up anywhere you are.

In conclusion, L'Oreal Color Riche Electric lipsticks are lip colors that are ultra-bold, ultra-trendy, yet easily wearable and can instantly brighten up any look. If you're feeling down, all you need is a swipe or two of any of these colors and I SWEAR you will instantly feel better. If you feel intimidated, DON'T! After all, it's just lipstick. ^_~

Here's a side-by-side comparison of all five shades

Glamour Fuchsia wins my heart big time. It really does lit up your face and you do not need much make up to look awesome.

Hi Ms. Krissy! I came across your site when I was searching for a review on the book Interim Goddess of Love by Mina Esguerra. My most favorite is your journey on how you enrolled at romanceclass, your graduation and your photos with Mina *envious*. I am a big fan of her too. I also love that in each every post, you have an update on what are you reading, wearing, and listening to. I love every bit of your posts that's why choosing my least favorite post of yours is very hard. I'd like to win a L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Electric lipstick because I have a fair skin and wearing a bold color of lipstick makes me look less pale. Here are my top choices:
1- Glamour Fuschia
2- Lincoln rose
3- Orange Power
4- Touch of Amaranth
5- Pop Up Pink


Thanks for this Ms. Krissy :)
I am looking forward to read your Unce Upon a Sticky Note :)

Hello Krissy! Great giveaway! Well, I can't remember where exactly I found your blog but I am definitely sure it was through my daily blog hopping. I normally check my feeds through bloglovin and I notice if you post pictures of your OOTDs, I will check it out. I also love your watercolor paintings! More of that, please! Hehe. Least favorite would be posts that talk about gadgets unless they're pretty to look at like a pink cam? LOL.

Mann, I can't remember the last time I wore a lipstick from L'oreal. It's a shame but I loved their Gelmatic Liner. Anyway, I think this Color Riche Electric Lip collection will make me revisit this brand soon.

1 Orange Power
2 Touch of Amaranth
3 Lincoln Rose
4 Glamour Fuchsia
5 Pop Up Pink


My name is Laarni T. (sorry, last name was intentional. I don't want my full name to be googled. hehe. I hope it's okay.)

Hi Ms. Krissy! It's been a year now since I started reading blogs and base most my shopping/buying decisions (haha) from blogger's point of views and suggestions whether it's about food, fashion or travel. That is why I started to follow all the great bloggers by reading from one blog to the other, and that's when I happened to visit your blog Ms. Krissy :) I love your posts about arts and crafts since I'm an art lover! I would love to see more food and travel blog posts :)

About the L'Oreal Paris Lipstick, honestly I'm somewhat hesitant to wear lipstick at all times since I feel like eating them. I actually want to be free spirited with bare face most of the time, but this coming school year, I'll be needing to be more presentable since I'll start working na. hahaha :)


btw, here's my ranking:
1. Orange Power
2. Lincoln Rose
3. Pop Up Pink
4. Touch of Amaranth
5. Glamour Fuchsia


Thank you! More Powers to you and your Blog Ms. Krissy :)
