The Beauty Box: L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Plum Passion

10.19.2012


If you watch Xfactor and happened to be on twitter a few weeks ago, you'd have seen the hubbub that surrounded that lipstick. That make-up look. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I mean Cheryl Cole's make-up look that marked her recent reappearance on Xfactor, image of which you can see here.



A wonderful, purple-y pink lipstick which goes by the name of Plum Passion quickly because the talk of the #bbloggers town, and swept up in the excitement I grabbed myself one...



Although it's not a shade I've worn before, I'm starting to become more confident in wearing bolder shades on my lips, and I feel like this is a good transition into bright colour. As the name of the lipstick suggests, the lipstick is rich in colour - highly pigmented. It is also lovely and creamy to apply, leaving a smooth result. It lasts for quite a long time (even through eating and drinking). The only downside - if you would consider it one - is that it does stain the lips!

I'm thinking of recreating Cheryl's look in one of my How I Do Videos, so let me know what you think about that!

Do you like this shade? Have you tried any of the Colour Riche lipsticks?
