We’re well and truly into the depths of the autumn season now and I am LOVING it! It’s just so cosy to be able to wear big jumpers and light beautiful spicy candles, and as always I love the makeup for this season! Everyone is pulling out those dark, berry lips and I am no exception. Last year, my favourite lipstick was one from the Rimmel Kate Moss collection, but this year I’ve switched it up a bit and found a new lipstick to obsess over, and so I thought (kind as I am!) that I’d share it on here with you guys.
The L’oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte lipstick in the shade 430/Mon Jules is such a beautiful lipstick. I am totally in love, and I adore wearing this on days where I’m going out of the house – which is rare, and in general in the autumn season. It’s such a gorgeous shade, and I really like it because the colour isn’t too purple, which I find often happens with these berry lipsticks. I prefer to have a more burgundy tone to mine, I mean, don’t get me wrong I love to have a purple tone in there too, but more of a plummy shade and I feel like this lipstick really has it all right colour wise!
The formula is really lovely too. The lipstick definitely has a matte finish, but it applies really nicely and the finish is very smooth looking. I don’t find it too drying at all, in fact I wouldn’t even say you would have to use a lipbalm after wearing this if you didn’t want to (although I do always use one). The colour fades really nicely as you go through your day, however the lasting power is incredible, I’ve found this easily lasts for six hours without budging a single bit! However, it can be a bit prone to smudging and going all over your face should you accidentally touch your lips, but I find this happens with all darker shades of lipstick.
Thats an unedited picture of a swatch of this lipstick so that you can get a true impression of the colour that it really is!
My only problem with this lipstick is that the packaging feels a bit cheap. The gold bit is lovely, however the black casing feels very plasticy and seems as though it has a somewhat false embossed leathery design on it. I really don’t like the look it gives this lipstick, but what can you do? Especially when the lipstick is so good inside!
Have you ever tried a lipstick like this? Whats your favourite shade of autumn lipstick?
